I got in on 2/25 and I just checked my status checker to try to help you guys out.
My status still says decision finalized, and there's a blank mailing for 2/25. So i'd say it's definitely not a bad sign!

You'll get an email before the end of today. I think I received it approximately three hours after.

Actually I take that back. I received a status update of "Final Review", and was admitted the same day. I never received "decision finalized" prior to my admittance e-mail.

Speak of the devil...ACCEPTED!

For those curious:

Mid-January submission, went Committee Read 1 pretty much immediately thereafter, then Committee Read 2 on 2/24 & 2/25 (random date change). Decision finalized today and then accepted via email.

GPA is between 25th & median.
LSAT is substantially above 75th.

From reading in this thread, it looks like 3 weeks is average.

That was for those who were accepted very early, it's not likely it will that long for the recent admits.
