How can you be so sure David Axelrod is not doing one of the admission interviews?


He told me he's not. Me 'n the 'Rod are good buddies. He almost wrote one of my LetRecs, but I told him, "No thanks, Dave, I want some high-profile writers."

This is probably one of the most linked resources on this forum, and for good reason. :)

Yea after your interview, your status changes to the day of the interview or the day after.

It likely wasn't as bad as you think!

My status checker updated right after the interview and then again the next day. I don't see why that would be a bad sign. Good luck to you!

The interview/status date thing had me curious, so I went and checked. Mine is set to two days after the interview, so yep, seems normal.

Anyone else in this situation? I submitted late December, but LSAC says they still haven't received a CAS report request. I would worry too much...but its been over two weeks-everything else is in.

I had an issue where one school wouldnt let me go complete because they said they never got my transcript but I was like "wow that makes no sense, they got everything else in the CRS report." So I waited for it to correct itself. Two weeks later, nothing. So I call LSAC and turns out they forgot to scan my updated, degree conferring transcript into my file after notifying me that they received it in September. All this to say, couldnt hurt to call LSAC.

edit: also, some schools marked me complete, so I was unaware of a problem for about a month.

I changed on the date of my interview, a few days after my interview, and then today (which I guess is technically UR4, since I was UR before my interview invite).
