Found out I was accepted today! I applied via PT with a 3.62/169 and did not write the additional essay.

I had two URs (the second one on day 7, I believe) and didn't get my decision until day 10.

They sometimes get decisions out more quickly than that, according to the spreadsheet, but I wouldn't expect it.


I figured as much. Thanks a lot!

Congrats to all the Mordecai folks. I'm thinking about adding a column for this to the spreadsheet. Maybe there's a pattern.

WL'd today. Actually a little surprised, hopeful that it bodes well for a T14 acceptance elsewhere:

LSAT<25%, GPA>50%, non-URM.

hmmmm i'm in the same boat as you, same date and everything. Only difference is that I'm not positive my numbers are competitive (<25th gpa, >75th lsat). I'm sure this doesn't mean anything, but people on this site seem to love too much info rather than not enough!

Will update if things change.

Assuming you haven't gotten a decision yet, probably. Email or call them and ask.

I think people who got put on Priority Reserve got the decision made status.

I mean, it's fine :D I was just amused by the "near perfect" choice of wording.

I am NOT near perfect! I have a 171 and a 3.9+, but some (I think) strong softs. I was really pleasantly surprised by the email.
