Pretty much same as Gary, haha. Over 75th for LSAT, a hair above median GPA.

I wonder if it is only auto-admits getting in until January

Has anyone been waitlisted or rejected?

Is anyone else stuck on "Application received"? I've been there for over a month and am getting jealous of y'all who have actually gone UR.

If I remember correctly, there's a "complete" status between received and under review. If you're still on received after a month you may want to contact the office and make sure that they aren't missing something which is keeping you from going complete.

Will do - thanks for the advice. Trying to straddle the line between patience and freaking out is difficult sometimes.

I just had to pick a top choice that disdains splitters. I'm not optimistic, but having the app in is still a relief. I'm either in or out, no anxiety necessary, and may Boalt have mercy on my soul, or lack thereof.

Your profile is so similar to mine that it's frightening.

All the schools that have status checkers on an LSAC server are down for LSAC's maintenance.

Me too! I haven't had movement since 11/4. Is this a bad sign?

My guess is that you are going to be reviewed by the faculty/student committee. The majority of applicants go through this step. It has probably been hard to schedule students and professors because of finals. My guess is there will be a huge review soon and we will see some more offers. I am surprised no one has posted acceptances today, they have been appearing on tuesdays if i remember correctly
