how long after your file goes under review does it typically take for them to email a decision?

Took me the full 10 days to give me a decision. Submitted early morning 9/25. Went complete (got the status check email) on 9/26. Went UR 9/27. Decision 10/6 in the evening. GL!

Apparently they can, but I'm sure most people check the status checker religiously. I do!

Here is a TLS post by Dean Perez at Texas Tech Law explaining the status checker notifications:

THIS IS MY WORST FEAR.


Haha. No, we can't see how often you check or when the last time you checked in was.

That said, it's not hard to get an idea when we change something on the status checker and get a phone call from an applicant within 20 minutes of making the change. :)


OMGurd...apparently I lied to you guys. A colleague of mine found a few fields deep in the database that are available for reporting out. The fields are the total number of logins and the date/time of the last login.

So yeah, we could totally know how many times you check your status. Luckily, I can't say that we probably care at all unless something gives us a reason to care.

And with that, I am going to go ahead and limit my checks to twice a day-ish. Thanks!

Those who have been admitted, did you receive a phone call or just email? I'm under review ATM and wanna know whether I should bother checking my phone while at work or if they will just email me decision

Don't bother checking your status. Mine stayed as "under review" until I got the email.

I have had the status "Decision Made; Watch for email" Since 7:00 EDT. It is now 11:00 EDT, is this some kind of cruel joke?

Just had my Dean's Letter sent from my school, will Duke send me an email when the app goes to complete? Or should I keep checking frantically?

+1 Similar boat when I found out on Sunday. Woke up early to a "Decision Made: Watch for email" and no decision until Sunday evening. Didn't help that I was moping about the October LSAT the whole time since I'd taken it a day before :P
