Whoops. Hit quote instead of edit and didn't realize it until I posted.

Anyways, in-state accepted. Numbers in profile (on LSN)

Oh god, called about something else in my application (ok, not really), and they told me I was currently in review.

RIGHT NOW.

And then my voice sort of yelped, and the woman laughed.

Is there anyone with great stats who hasn't been admitted yet? I'm just wondering if we've seen the wave of acceptances and the rest of us waiting are just WLs and rejects..

Great might be pushing it, but I have numbers at or a little above those that have been accepted.

I'm not going to get in. They hate me.

??? How would the lady on the phone know who the committee is looking at RIGHT NOW?

When she laughed you should have said, "I'm glad you think this is funny, bitch, but this is my life here!!!!!!" then pause 5 seconds and tell her you were joking.

I checked up LSN and there were almost no URM applicants that did not get in with my numbers or above. So I'd be really surprised if I don't get in. Perhaps they wait on accepting URM applicants until they get a few more to compare to.

I went with:

Peara- "Wait...now? Like, its under review now?"

Admissions Lady- "Yes." *chuckle*

Peara- "Okthankyouverymuchhaveagooddaythankagainbye."

For starters, I couldn't get the link from my email for the status checker to work. So what I did was simply type "https://aces.law.wm.edu/YourStatus/membership/AppStatIdMe.aspx?guid=QCkk0WeEa8M%3D" - sans quotation marks, of course - into the status bar from my homepage (Google.com, representin'). And, BAM. It started working. I punched in my details, and this shows up to the left of my application status screen:

Status wrote:Current Status: Application Ready for Review
Current Status Date: 9/30/2009
Decision Status: Review Complete
Decision Status Date: 9/30/2009
I'm thinking... well, neat. Then I look down to the left, and I see this:
Mailings wrote:Congratulations! Admit Packet Mailed 11/04/2009
Application is Complete/Ready for Review 09/11/2009
Application Has Been Received 09/02/2009
Now I'm thinking... hoooooly crap!

not really, she just said my app hadn't made it to her desk yet, and then she found it and said that she would get to it very soon

So, if we haven't heard anything (the status checker hasn't changed) does that mean that it is not a good thing? Or does it mean that they haven't got to my app yet?

I got in with the same LSAT as you and a lower GPA. I wouldn't worry for a second, you will get in. When did you apply? In state?

Have people's statuses been changing today to show acceptance or am I just wasting my time clicking refresh a thousand times?
