Worse...

It means it has yet to be complete. Only after it's complete will it go UCR.

I was "received" for a month before it went complete :'(

If you don't know why you app is incomplete, I would call them.

Wait, before you call, make sure you look at the checklist on the status checker and ensure all of your app components have been received!

What do you mean by had not been assigned? Like, to a reviewer?

I went complete today after almost a month (12/08) from the application received status.

If you were waiting on lsat scores, that's probably why.

But also, your almost a month was more like two to three weeks since they had a holiday break.

True, but still I found it quite stressful in comparison to the rest of the schools timeline between received and complete in cases where you submitted all the materials together. Anyway. I was told when I emailed them that "Your application is now in the review queue. We will send you an email when it actually goes into review" even before I was notified that it was complete. So, who knows what are they really up to with my app.
