Well no, he said early-mid January.

"As a general rule of thumb, if your application was complete before November 1, we should be able to get you a decision by early-to-mid January."

Well we're in slightly different places. Core and I had November JR1s. You and musketeer lady haven't heard anything in over 3 months. Brutal.

Ooh, I was mistaken, so I guess HLS should give us something by the end of this week. At this point I'd be happy to get a hold. Good luck to you Crackberry. Good things come to those who are patient :-)

its funny how often this question comes up.

JR= dean of admissions (initials)

first you submit your app...then..

JR1 email = email from admissions office to schedule a phone interview
JR1 = phone interview (10 minutes)
JR2 = another phone call..."congrats you are in!"

A group of JR2 comes out each Monday. If you don't get a JR1, you have no shot. If you get a JR1 but no JR2 you are in purgatory (see appropriate thread). The nominal case is to get a JR2 the monday after your interview.

80% of JR1 convert to a JR2

Nope, you are not alone (although it seems to be just us and musketeerlady...). I went complete on 10/8, and I have heard diddly squat. No JR1. Nothing.

I'm thrilled to still be in the game... it is a reach reach reach to say the least. I figure I'm in the equivalent of the FR at Berkeley.

Same here. I wish they would just send those hold/rejection emails out already.

I've also been held as of 5 minutes ago. Went complete 10/28, no JR1. I guess this is better than a rejection!

i spoke with someone at LSAC about this recently and she assured me that it automatically goes out to all schools that originally requested your file, within 7-10 business days.

Probably stupid, but do we know about how the review process at HLS works? Other than that at some point JR sees it for JR1/2 purposes.

I have neither been JR1'd, held, or rejected yet.

With a late October submission date, I hear the masked man approaching for me.

I have not the energy to rage, rage against the dying of the light. I'm sure it is coming.

But at least I will savor my last day or two of blissful ignorance.

Seriously, though, congrats to all those who have had success, which I believe a "hold" should count for, right?

Just curious, when people say "Complete 11/XX" do you mean that's the date you received a complete email, or that's when you went complete on the status checker? I ask because I also submitted on 10/28 and didn't get a complete email until 11/19, but was UR 11/3.

For me, it was an 11/5 complete email, but on the status checker I was UR 10/28.

I was complete via email on 11/5 but complete via status check on 10/28. My JR1 was on 12/15.
