Not to put a damper on things or lose hope, but I just figured I would point out that the majority of admissions actually occur during the "administrative review" from Dean Tom or his staff:

"I admit roughly 550 people through what I call the administrative review process, and the admissions committee (the faculty committee) admits about another 200 or so. So, we end up admitting about 700 to 750 people."

But just because you are "under review" for a while doesn't necessarily mean that you won't receive an "administrative" admit...I hope.

Best of luck to everyone!

That information is an eye-opener indeed, but I'm impressed with his frankness. Best of luck to you as well!

Same. Getting a bad feeling.

I just got a call from an unknown number, and even though I knew the area code was wrong, I got irrationally excited that MAYBE it had something to do with law school admissions. But no, it was just the UPS Guy, asking if he could leave three pairs of new shoes on my doorstep. I really need to get into school soon so I can stop taking out my anxiety online shopping, or else I won't have any money left for tuition. :shock:

In other news, when did UPS start offering customer service? A delivery guy who calls you instead of making you go through 3 delivery attempts to get your package?! He must be a temp holiday worker. Too nice and efficient.

I'm UR 11/9 too, and I don't think there's anything to be worried about yet. I haven't been keeping close track, but they haven't been sending out waves and waves, right? Maybe if there have been a bunch of people who went UR around the same time have already gotten we'd have something to worry about but I'm not sure that's the case.

I'm starting to get the feeling that we won't see anything until 2010. Just saying.

Hopefully they dont follow in the footsteps of other schools on the Wednesday Massacre and sent out rejections.

Someone please Twitter them back and ask what "soon" means!

Edit: They have 3 hours left in the day. I think if they send out an update like that on Twitter they should be obligated to send out some decisions today...Don't tell us to check our email/status checkers if there's nothing there!
