Wow, thanks for posting about it! In via status checker too! I was straight up denied last year!

It took me awhile to tell - all I was looking at at first was the "decision has been reached" part lol, and last year when I was denied all the rejection language was at the top.

Omg in via status checker! Applied 12/1. Can't believe it. It is such an amazing school especially for my interests (PI).

Just a note: last year there was a wave of acceptances on Tuesday (19th) and then a wave of rejections on Friday of that same week (22nd).

I'm with ya too, but I expected it. I have a low LSAT, but I tried anyways since I heard they favor high GPAs.

Just got the email from Dean Tom confirming admission! So not too much of a delay between status checker and email.

Is the average wait time from under review to decision about 1 month?

I submitted early December and went under review last week which was annoyingly longer than I thought it would take.

I've been under review since October 13th. Not-so-patiently waiting for that ding.

Signed up for an account today to ask if anyone else's Mailings section is empty? I'm wondering if this is a glitch/worth sending an e-mail to Boalt about or if everyone's app screen looks like this.
