So now that it is the close of business is it safe to say that the carnage has ceased? For the last hour I have just been writhing in agony as I could see the guillotine inching closer and closer. But now, can I stop living in fear for the time being? Might an e-mail still come?

Yes they have.


I was just going from what I saw on lsn, what am I missing?

At least two 175+ have been rejected so far. The fact that they aren't on LSN is meaningless.

I was just explaining why I was under that impression; not attributing any special meaning to lsn.

My turn. Ding via email. At least now I can move on with my life. Submitted first week of November by the way.

Got it. Sorry if I came across as combative. Just telling you that HLS has, in fact, rejected at least two 175+ applicants.

Yea, as more and more time passes without a JR1 and as the rejection emails get closer and closer to my completion date I just can't help but grasp at straws.

With a 178, I wouldn't be too worried.

Is it generally better to send in an updated transcript even if my gpa fell if I was held?

Also, can we send in a updated LOR from the same recommender? Thanks guys.

Are these ding/held/JR1 emails still coming? I'm a URM and submitted at the end of the first week in November and haven't heard anything yet...

Got the rejection email earlier today. Applied 10/26, UR 11/02, Complete 11/19. LSAT 172, GPA below 25th percentile. Saw that one coming a mile away.

I received a hold e-mail this morning (non-URM 169/3.99)...a pleasant surprise for sure! But now I'm going to work to get into the good graces of the adcom. Does anyone have any idea how favorably a LOR would look if it's from a different supervisor at the same office where my previous recommender works?

No email yet and very very scared.

I tried to login to my status checker and got this message:

You have navigated here in error.
Invalid Entry Point. You must enter this site from the LawSchool's website.
Or Perhaps your session timed out. Please return to your Law Schools Website.

:shock: Am I rejected? I was hoping to retake the Feb LSAT to get in off the waitlist. But now....

I don't think that that means that you're rejected. I am rejected and when I try to login to the status checker, (a) it works, and (b) it says Decision Rendered 1/15/2010.

annnnnnnnd I'm rejected. No big surprise though. It would have been a shocker if I actually got accepted!

Hey, I went Under Review on 10/8 and have heard absolutely nothing back since the email saying that I was complete. Is anyone else in this situation as well/know what this means? My numbers are pretty far below their averages (167/3.62) so I am curious why I wasnt outright rejected... :?:

Story of my life, dude. Story of my life. Went complete 10/8 and haven't heard jack shit since. My UR date did reset to the beginning of January, so my guess is that I'm on hold. I don't know why I didn't get an e-mail telling me I was though.
