I've been CR1 since 2/24. How long does it take from CR1 to a decision usually?

Got in! Curious to see how their offer compares with UCLA's.

Submitted: 12/23
1st read: 1/21
2nd read: 2/23, 2/25
Decision Finalized: 3/3, received email a few hours after I saw the status checker changed

GPA just above 25%, LSAT > 75%, non URM, out of state.

I went complete yesterday night. I'm not counting in any way on an acceptance but dare to dream, and also apply next cycle after I retake the LSAT >:(

CR2 since 01/15.

Wish this process would speed up a little bit with decision time right around the corner..

Ok, I don't know how to take this...opinions please. I was stuck on CR1 since 12/19 and then all of a sudden today is final review...I'm thinking it's a bad sign!

Obviously your numbers are far and away more important than the timeline of your respective review phases! If your numbers are medianish or above, I'd say the odds are good. If your numbers are below, then I'd say they're poor.

Quite poor, unless you are an underrepresented minority or have some amazing "soft" (nonquantitative) factor in your favor.

I'm hoping for wait list at least! I've been CR1 since 2/24 and it's complete agony to wait.

Submitted 1/6
Complete 1/6
First Committee Read: 1/16 (I think)
Second Committee Read: 1/28 & 2/18
Final Review: 3/5

Here's to hoping I'm admitted! But either way, I just want an answer.
LSAT<25, GPA>75

Fingers crossed!!!

Thank you! Hopefully this is an unnecessary question, but do they email rejections like they do acceptances or do they just mail the letter?

Last year, my ding came in a small letter via snail mail.
