Anyone else get a "complete" email this morning? My status checker has said complete since 9/26. Wonder if this means that they're starting to review.

I've been complete since 9/27 but just got the email today as well. Perhaps the 2nd to last email I will ever get from them, but hey, one can dream!

Same. Does "All candidates will receive a notification of their decision via email" indicate any change in past policy? In previous cycles, haven't they extended admission acceptance via phone call?

Even if they call you first, they will always send an e-mail too. So it doesn't indicate any change.

It just means you will get an e-mail for anything: interview, accepted, held, waitlisted, rejected. So you don't have to keep refreshing the status checker. But I know some of you will anyway. :wink:

I was already complete and got the email as well.

+1, though I wish it has something to do with JS1's.

Really jealous of you guys, having your app in and just waiting. I still need to get my LSAT score and finish getting the LoR's in. Looking forward to joining y'all in the waiting game in a few weeks though.

How long after you submitted an application did it take to receive a confirmation email?

It's totally random. My status checker indicated that I was complete on Oct 1st.
But today I got an email as well.

Posting approximate stats would be awesome everyone. Or at least filling out the spreadsheet. If we know when people with certain stats get JS1s and then JS2s, could make the waiting game more fun and slightly more predictable. Especially because this year might be even weirder than last with applications.

Sounds like a recipe for disaster.

Snoop is undoubtedly a gunner.

Snoop is more of the type to skip out on every class and smoke flowers instead. Of course, he'll end up at the top of the class. I'm sure many TLSers were this guy in college
