hey guys - wasn't following this thread too closely since i had just submitted 11/8, and wham, got a call from a 510 number... I'm in also!

my numbers on LSN are slightly off, but #'s in TLS profile are accurate.

Now that I've calmed down from post-acceptance euphoria, I remember a few pieces of potentially useful info. Dean Tom said the status checkers wouldn't be updated until 10-12 days from now (at least for the acceptances), an acceptance packet would be mailed soon and to be expecting it in the next couple of weeks, and the decisions were made less than 24 hours ago, so maybe they'll hit us with another wave of acceptances tomorrow (speculation).

Hope this helps someone!

Also, I am in the Midwest FWIW.

I'm torn between wanting him to hurry and call more people (if my file has been reviewed already and I was in the admit pile) and focus on reading more applications (if my application hasn't been seen yet).

No preference, of course, if my file has already been read and is in the reject pile.

I don't think you should be worried, because most of acceptances have been high LSATs so far (only a few below 173).

+1

I think us reverse-splitters are in for a bit of a wait. I might have to take up chain smoking in the interim, but I'd be perfectly happy getting in after a committee review.

I haven't been following too closely but has anyone who has been UR on or after 11/18 been admitted?

There are plenty of folks > median for both GPA/LSAT (and > 75% for that matter) that went under review and haven't heard anything, so I'm not sure that's the pattern.

It's hard to say at this point. There's just not enough data. *cough cough*

@BoaltAdmission just posted a few things to Twitter. Do you think if I tweet at them, they'll let me in?
