It usually takes 8-10 weeks, so expect late January-early Feburary considering the holiday.

I've been "Complete" since 9/29. Is it strange that I still havent been placed "Under Review"?

I don't think so... notice how everyone "under review" is an auto-admit so far? They basically sorted our applications, "reviewed" the auto-admits, and will get down to our crappy applications in time.

Yeah, I've been "in review" since 12/11... hopefully that's a good thing. So far, I'm an anomly and havn't found anyone else in my boat.

I went to an admission session with Chloe Reid and she stated that they sort the applications, then review.

I think it might be that the 'in review" people are auto admits OR auto denies. I've been "in review" since 12/15 and I have a slim to none chance of even getting wait listed.

I'm basically an auto-admit and am still at 'Complete' as off 11/1. I received the Rothman mailing as well.

I think many, if not most, of the so-called "auto-admits" have been at "Decision Finalized" since 12/21.

Well my degree/UCSD GPA is 3.83. I graduated Magna Cum Laude even, but the LADAS took into account many years of floating through JC. Extremely frustrating. I'm also kicking myself for not thinking it was worth it to retake the LSAT. I probably could have picked up 4 or 5 points.

Has anyone on the east coast received the acceptance letter yet? I went Decision Finalized as of 12/21 and still have received nothing.

Just got the acceptance letter. I withdrew nearly two weeks ago so I'm not sure what happened but I went "Decision Finalized" on 12/21.

I'll confirm my withdrawal sometime later this week to free up another spot.

Thank you sir.

You know i find it ironic how different you are from monogamy. You guys have both excellent stats, and i would love to attend any law school with you, but would run like hell from him...

I would hate to attend law school with any of them, You'd already be behind the curve :P

Congrats to both of you (though SC isn't a real option for both of you)

If you get accepted and don't want to go, please withdraw. It's the decent thing to do. Some of us are dying to go there.

All of the documents should be there, but my fee waiver was this form I had to mail to them (because apparently USC thinks it's the 1980s). I mailed it on 12/6. Is it common for it to take them this long to go complete or did my post office screw up again?


Call or email the office this week. Due to the holiday break, they may not have gotten around to completing your app yet. In my case, I submitted my application in mid October and they didn't update me to "complete" until 11/10. Then again, they didn't utilize the status checker until November, so that could've caused the delay.
