i am. gosh, i hope funding doesn't send me to the dingsville. at any rate, i'm already working on a northwestern letter for the ding bar thread. ...though i can't seem to come up with anything particularly mean to say. zingers about the color purple, notwithstanding. :(
It might make it more competitive, since you're basically applying for 6 years of a full ride.

But it could just be that they make the decisions later for JD-PhD candidates, and that's why you weren't in back in January.

Either way, they're picking up the pace so we can't be far off. Hopefully this is the last RD batch as it would be logical that they get to all of those before the holds.

Per this post:

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=91036&p=2874871#p2874871

Unannounced switch.

Not sure what this means, but I think the previous theories just exploded.

If I sent an unconditional LOCI, do you think the withdrawing from other schools part is implied or I do I need to explicitly state that?

My wording: "If admitted, I would unconditionally attend."

Should I send another?
