Fingers crossed so many times over #pretzelhands


I've been there awhile. My theory is still that it is an unofficial waitlist.

If I'm wrong, good luck!


Honestly, I think you're right. And I think a lot of schools are doing that this cycle. I've been at 2nd read since 12/10 or so

It makes sense to me. If the committee didn't want to accept me after the first read, hold onto it and see what it looks like given the general application pool and then decide later at a second read.

Ok, so I submitted 1/13. Went complete 1/14. Just checked my status checker and I'm under 2nd committee review already :shock:

It looks like most who were accepted so far ITT moved smoothly through 2nd committee to decision finalized after a week or a few weeks.

tbh it'd probably be a worse sign to be stuck in 1st committee review forever. I wish I could get a visual on their process and how they sort apps into different piles by preference, etc.

So they probably are widdling ours down pile by pile... I don't think anyone's for sure in a waitlist pile yet

Is that good or bad if you guys went from complete to committee review?


I have no idea but I'd love some insight on this.

I didn't go on the status checker yesterday so maybe 1/15 was committee review 1? I am just as confused as you.

Well that was some pointless panicking. Never got an email, but a packet came today.

Checking in.

It's interesting, at this point last cycle (Jan 17), the USC c/o 2016 thread had 21 pages, to our 11. I hope that translates to fewer apps, more acceptances, and perhaps even faster notification times.

I went from complete to second review in a weeks time, is this a bad sign? I'm a 3.2 168. Gpa is low but I figure they are in need of lsats. Any insight?

Complete--> 1st Review --> 2nd Review --> 2nd Review --> Decision finalized.
Went straight to "decision finalized" (no final review like some have gotten).

long time lurker.

complete since early October.
Should I be worried it hasn't changed to preliminary review, or committee review?

numbers are above both medians so I feel like I should be competitive.

Anyone else in this boat?
