Same. My timeline:
Received: 10/21
Complete: 10/28
Decision: 11/3

I don't want to count my chickens before they hatch but my status checker now says: "Congratulations! Admt package sent 11/4"

got the status check, i also have "decision pending 11/3". Does this mean they've already made it? If so, how do they contact us??? I would be surprised if it were this early!

So I received my FIRST email from W&M today thanking me for my application, and when I signed into the status checker, I found out that I had been admitted...yesterday. This is the timeline:

Submitted App: 10/11
Decision reached: 11/4
Application packet mailed: 11/5

Strange that I received my first email from them after I was accepted, but hopefully this can reassure people who are freaking out about not hearing anything from them yet.

Got the status checker. Apparently I have a decision pending as of 11/2, but it doesn't say what it is yet. Numbers are in my profile.

They're snail mail for decisions, right?

Sounds like we have a range getting the "Decision pending". Mine was 11/2, so maybe they are just working their way through the list, but all of the status checker emails went out at the same time. Otherwise, we may all have to wait until March 24th as it says on the page:

The majority of decisions will be finalized during the month of March following the application deadline date when the competition in the applicant pool is known and assessed.

this is exactly what mine says:

Current Status: Application Ready for Review
Current Status Date: 11/3/2009
Decision Status: Initial Review Complete/Decision Pending
Decision Status Date: 11/3/2009

so maybe it just means no decision has been made quite yet.

I have the 'Decision Pending' message. my LSAT is in the 165-168 range and a GPA in the 3.3-3.6 range. From the sounds of the others in the Congrats/Pending stage, it would seem they're just doing batches. I can't believe that the PP with a 169/3.7 (or whatever he was) wouldn't get in. I'm sticking with the batch concept.

Think positive! 8)

Question - for those of you admitted with the Congratulations status update...

When did you receive your initial Status Checker email with the link and username/password?

edit: please answer in relation to when you received the admit message. For example, did you get the status update 2 days before the admit msg., or did anyone get it the same day?

I got the email today, and the message today, although it is dated 11/4.
