Yep! Very similar timeframe here (UR1 1/22, but otherwise the same).

Joining you both on UR3 today! UR1 1/30, interview last week.

Hopefully we don't have to wait too much longer for a decision!

I went UR2 today but I haven't received an interview. Does this mean I'm an auto ding?

How many hours did you guys put into researching + practicing for the interview?

Also, will the interview questions be tailored to my application/is the interview open-file (the interviewer knows my application and personal statement)?

The interviewer will have read your file as part of the initial committee review, but they will likely not remember the specifics. They typically glance over your résumé before it starts to refresh their memory.

I would be ready for tailored questions but not surprised if there weren't any. And don't feel like you can't repeat something you said in your PS or elsewhere in your application: better to assume they don't remember than that they do.

Interview request today with a 2/18 UR (or maybe UR2) date.
LSAT 50th, GPA > 75th

Congrats and good luck to all those who also got the email today!

Interview invite last night! Around 50th for both GPA and LSAT, so I'm definitely grateful. Early February complete, UR1 2/27.

Interview Invite yesterday.
Applied mid Jan.
Complete early Feb.
Under Review late Feb.

I've been following this thread for a while, and I assume this has been addressed in this thread before, but I can't remember.
Do we have an estimate of how many people they invite to interview?

Since I've seen a lot of questions about this lately, here is my best understanding of the status checker journey for people who are admitted:

  • Application Received
  • Application Complete (you get an email for this)
  • Application Under Review (UR 1) <- indicates first committee review of your file
  • (OPTIONAL) Application Under Review (UR 1.5) <- I did not receive this step, but I believe some people did
  • Invited for Interview
  • Application Under Review (UR 2) <- generally immediately after your interview, indicates that the interview is done
  • Application Under Review (UR 3) <- indicates second committee review of your file
  • Application Under Review (UR 4) <- most (all?) people get this in the days leading up to decisions being released. Both waves of decisions this year have been on Tuesday; UR4s have started on Friday and continued on Sunday/Monday/Tuesday. As far as I know, getting UR 4 happens whether you're getting admitted, WL'd, or dinged in the wave.

Hope this is helpful to people.
