4/2 (i think that was the third or fourth update). i'm in at CLS, but i'm seriously considering chicago. haven't heard from nyu, but i've pretty much ruled them out at this point. i guess things could be worse.

Oh wow, then we are in the exact same boat. Except flip flop on NYU and Chicago.

Not sure if I would choose NYU over CLS.

!!!

When did you submit? Did you ask them to hold off review until you submitted a Feb LSAT? I sent my app through LSAC five days before the deadline and went complete about a month ago.

Edit: n/m. Read your other thread.

I haven't heard anything from Chicago.....whats the general sentiment?

Are we headed for the wait list? Any new acceptances whats the deal?

There have to be at least some more acceptances. I mean, they haven;t issued decisions to anyone who applied after the first weekend in January yet.

Or they could just never issue any decisions for the rest of us. At this point, I wouldn't be shocked if I didn't hear before May, and I'm probably a couple of weeks ahead of some of you (UR 3/23 -> 3/26).

# In the home stretch - we are working hard to read all pending JD files and release all initial decisions as quickly as possible. 6:23 AM Apr 15th via web

So I guess the definition of quickly is a bit different in Chicago vs. everywhere else in the world? There's seriously no excuse for taking longer than Yale.

They're either horrendously understaffed or just plain inefficient. Everyone dealt with a bump in applications this year.

4/2er's that are still under review and escaped the bloodbath of rejections that weekend.... did we dodge a bullet?

I just called to inquire about my application and the response was: "We're shredding it now."

I went UR today for a second time as well. Previously 4/16. Hopefully that means a decision this week.

Which shouldn't be the case, since every T14 charges about the same application fee.
