Tried to solicit a PT invite and got denied this morning. 167/3.78. It was worth a shot! Just submitted RD

Just went complete on Tuesday on priority track, I answered yes to a C&F question which required a dean’s letter which took a few days. Wonder if I’ll get notified by Sunday? Or next Friday? Anyone got a clue

I'd expect to wait the 10 days

What is the UR1/UR2 distinction? I know that UR2 indicates a decision is imminent, but are they actually doing anything different as far as reviewing your file goes?

Also note that while the PT registration email uses the example of apply October 1 and get a response by October 10, from LSN it looks like people are actually hearing on day 11 (including the day your app goes complete), e.g. complete on 10/4 and decision 10/14.

I have a feeling that capacity is exhausted, given that they reportedly aren't meeting their self-imposed 10 day deadline (while working on weekends)

Checking in - Priority Track application went complete yesterday.

Did the people who applied PT and did not hear back within 10 days eventually get an answer? Or are you guys still waiting?

Per the acceptance letter

The Financial Aid Office will send you the scholarship application form via email in December; information about how to schedule an optional interview will also be available at that time. If you apply, you will receive your official admission letter and financial aid decision soon after the Scholarship Committee completes the review.

Day 10 still UR1 :| Hope that isn't a sign of impending waitlist/rejection.

Also interested in the answer to this.
Today is day 8 for me, wondering if I should still be counting on a day 10 response or if it might be longer.

Can't believe a 10 day wait can be worse than the 30 day LSAT wait
