Wednesday is the consensus day that I get dinged, right?

Anyone have any idea how FR decisions will happen? A wave? Trickle?

The optimist in me hopes that sticking to UR right now is just a potential next step to FR, the pessimist in me thinks it's more likely a deny deemed unworthy for FR. :cry:

Has there been any acceptances since FR emails started going out (presumably to non-FR applicants)? Were all of the last round of dings right before FR, or did some come after?

Do those of us UR still have a shot a straight admittance? I submitted on 1/6 and went UR 1/13.

Submitted the 10th but same UR. I wonder this too but I don't think anyone really knows. 15 days isn't too long so I'm not worried yet....

I think we must. I submitted 1/11 and went UR the same day as you. I'm waiting until after this Wednesday before I get pessimistic.

Feel free to browse back through to verify my memory, but I think it went Wednesday for admits, Thursday for FR, and Friday for denials, nothing today.

And to those above, I doubt anyone is certain, but last year's thread is your best hint.

Checking in while I wait. LSAT between 50 and 75, GPA > 75. Would love Berk, but don't expect to be able to afford it (if they even let me in!).

Yeah. Correction - even by pie-in-the-sky 0L standards, I can't afford it!

Looks like decisions started coming out around 10 a.m. Pacific time last week. Good luck, fellow waiters!

Edit: Make that 9 a.m. Pacific time.

The anticipation has rendered me useless...I have refreshed my email an unreasonable number of times in the past 20 minutes.

At what point should one give up on decisions being released today?

Hmm, I just checked LSN and it appears there were small waves of acceptances on 12/4, 12/11, 12/18, and then 1/8 and 1/22. They skipped the week of 1/15. I wouldn't be too surprised if they skipped this week as well, given all the action we saw last week. They cleared out a bunch of folks who were under review, and now they're tackling a new batch (us).

I hope my theory is proven wrong, though, because I'd really like to hear something today.
