UR 5 has never been reported before here on the boards.

I'm thinking it's not a great thing.

Why do you think it would be a bad sign?

I went UR4 on 1/16 and didn't change today.

For whom?

Fingers crossed those of us stuck on UR4 will still hear back in the first wave.

Also - does anyone know at what time we should be expecting these emails?

In one of the previous threads, it looks like people got UR5 and were accepted afterwards.

I went back through the threads while I was dying waiting for CLS yesterday and the last four years it's varied between 10:30 and 5 CST but is usually later in the afternoon.

Yep, in fact the majority of people seem to have been at UR4 before acceptance. UR5 seems to happen infrequently. Hoping for the best for everyone!

definitely not giving up hope. But, unless some ppl on here are different, only ppl with lower LSATs/GPAs get UR5 it looks like. I think to go to that level means you're a borderline candidate.

I'd say I'm borderline as a splitter and still UR4 from 1/16 - below 25th %ile GPA and at 75th LSAT

I submitted at the end of the October. My most recent under review date is 1/16 which I think is UR3.

Same! I did not know UR5 was a thing and am not emotionally prepared.


I'm still UR4 and if I remember right we had ever identical stats on LSN. Weird!

someone updated the survey with a "waitlist" response within the last few minutes... my heart dropped thinking the RD wave started going out today!

I CAN NOT DEAL :shock:
