Mine isn't checked either now, and I'm not in UG so I doubt it's a transcript request.



if i had to take a wild guess, i'd say they want new reports when they go to review deferred applicants.

I'm RD and not an undergrad, and mine isn't checked anymore either.

I think it's just some sort of mistake in the system. I highly doubt they are going to bother to go in and uncheck the LSAT report as some sort of indication that we were deferred/rejected, and it doesn't really make sense to request new reports for people who have already graduated. I'm going to ignore it unless something gives me a reason to believe otherwise.

I'm RD and in undergrad and mine is unchecked. I'm guessing for now that its just a glitch like a while ago when some people had "regular" under their letters of recommendation. I could be wrong though

Only for Visiting and transfers :
Dean's certification
Final Transcript false

Same here, it looks like they're just updating something or messing around with it. I think its something to be ignored...

I was really scared about checking the mail too, but it seems that another day will go by without hearing anything.

I was right to be scared. Deferred. Oh well, I'm sort of relieved to have heard something.

Yea, me too. Is being deferred the same thing as being waitlisted?

Nope. I think being deferred means that they will reconsider you in March and give you a final decision then, whereas waitlisting means they may or may not reconsider you. Either way, the odds of getting in from one or the other are pretty poor.

Thanks. Good luck to you and the others who still haven't heard. I think the few of you that received grade requests have reason for hope yet.

1 Grades request here. I sent it in today. I ended up with a 4.06 this semester, so I hope they like it. Also, I talked to the office and they ONLY take off Xmas Day. They do not get an extended break. Decisions could come the day before or Monday after Christmas!! So there's no break from OCD email refresh.

this thread is like a twisted season of survivor. do you guys mind providing numbers at this point. i mean, are we even a competitive bunch? i'm a high lsat black dude, so i figure i'm not auto-reject material.
