Not sure whether to keep staring at my land line, my cell phone, my email, or the bird that just landed on my balcony with a scrap of paper in its mouth. I wish that I had more work to do in order to distract me, but I would love any sort of communication from Boalt; it would completely make my week.

I wish I had LESS work to do so staring at my phone wouldn't be hurting my chances at a later admittance with good fall grades :(

Ugh... I've been following this thread since submitting 10/31, and the more calls that go out the more discouraged I feel. I'm starting to think at this rate (apps up 10% this year so far?!), I'll be lucky to get into my "safety" schools! :shock:

I really hope they like my PS, because I think it's my best hope... the number of high LSAT admits so far aren't making me feel any better about my chances!!

for those of you fortunate enough to have received the call from Dean T, I was wondering if your status checker was updated. If so, what does it say now?

I don't have any exams this term, thanks to strategic scheduling and the honors thesis (which allowed me to take just two courses). :P My final papers were written by the end of Thanksgiving break; I just need to add bibliographies before dropping them off on Monday, and that action will constitute my "finals" for the fall.

Did people who got a phone call also get an email, or people who missed a call and didn't call back, were they notified in some other way. Im freaking out over this question, please answer.

My status checker is not updated. Earlier on in this thread, another poster mentioned that Dean T told him that the status checker would not be updated for several days for the new admits.

I think that I will enjoy it more than ever, with the law-school pressure released by then. Moreover, I'll have to make a special effort to get as much as I can out of my last few months there if I end up somewhere else next fall.

No, no other notification. Dean Tom said they would send emails in a week or two, I think. So definitely call him back! I was glad I did.

I on the other hand, have one a total of 27 pages in papers to write, as well as two finals. I am just constantly distracted on here instead.

TLS is an addiction that you won't kick before the spring. I'm fortunate that I didn't succumb until relatively recently.

A week or two? A week or two? How does one survive that long? Man, being international is </3.

Hmmm, if he said that they will not be emailing for a while, then it might be the case that he simply has time to call now--and decisions may have been made a while ago.
