This is intolerable, dinged from Harvard and Chicago within 5 minutes.

Both apps under review since September. :( :o :( :shock:


Sorry to hear that, but UR since September? I'm skeptical.

Edit: Nevermind, saw your actual UR dates. Guess you meant complete since September. Again, sorry to hear that :cry:

Wow was this a minuscule batch of dings or are people just not reporting since it's 5 pm on the East Coast on the Friday before a long weekend?

All of I know of are uganik and mockstar...

Just got dinged..

I was honestly thinking I had a shot at a waitlist, so I was very slightly surprised..

Oh well, I'm sending this letter back in time to myself before I started my first go at college

Congrats to all those who got accepted, and best of luck to those still waiting! I'm off to the NYU/Northwestern threads!!

Yup, dinged at about 4:30 just as crackberry reported. I, too, thought I had a shot at a waitlist. Oh well.

Interesting to see that they let in a bunch of 168s + high gpas but didn't let you in to balance out their scores.

Drew what was your UR date?

Also, I am pretty surprised mockstar got dinged and not WLed. One would think that an early JR1 applicant would at least get WLed at Chicago.

Has anybody who didn't update to a January UR date receive a ding yet?

Virginia's pretty bad, too. I'm still UR 11/9. Gotta love status checkers.

GPA/LSAT well below medium.

LOR's from a Supreme Court Justice, Managing Director of Goldman Sachs, a Christian Bishop & the President of my College.

Numerous super softs & several years of impressive WE--such that I wouldn't be terribly surprised if I got into Yale (after a Feb LSAT boost), although I'm having a little trouble focusing on the LSAT at the moment.

Heck, maybe I'll go get a MA in philosophy and try again in 2 years. I can't get myself terribly enthusiastic about anything less than a T14 and I'm starting to run out of those :cry:

Stanford, NYU & Yale......show this OP some love & (an) ACCEPTANCE

Good luck to all who are still in limbo!

I withdrew from UVA ages ago, in part because I was bored of staring at UR 11/6 on that status checker. Now it says Application Withdrawn 12/15. Makes me feel powerful. Take that UVA!

I think that I may follow suit...I'm a pretty patient person, but 4 months is a long time to wait. Also, probably a dumb question, but how does one withdraw an app? Just e-mail the admissions office?

I'm shocked at what seems like the very small size of this batch of dings.

There also doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it in terms of stats or chronology, etc.

Weird.

wow, sorry guys. sounds like they are dinging some very worthy candidates. i wonder what their reasoning is.....this whole admissions process seems like witchcraft to a certain extent.

sorry to hear about all the dings, I'm sure i will be joining you very soon, but at least I know i'll be in good company

my status checker updated from UR 12/29 to UR 1/15. Does such a fast UR update mean anything? good/ bad??
