I have "decision pending" and no decision yet. I've been at decision pending for about 5 weeks, and complete for over 6

The letter was dated 12/01, but arrived via a Priority Mail envelope on Monday. A nice early Christmas present to calm my nerves!
Oh! I also received an e-mail from William & Mary notifying me of the acceptance that morning.

GPA 3.80/LSAT 167

Mine changed to "Decision Pending" as of today.


What's the consensus?

Good or bad?

It seems that Decision Pending = Silent Waitlist (final decision in March/April).

EDIT: Please prove I am wrong. I'm Decision Pending since 11/30.

I don't think so, at least not actively reviewing anyway. I think it means they looked at it, didn't love it / hate it, and are undecided at this point and they'll look at it later. I'm basing this on the fact that I've been decision pending since 11/23 and there have been a bunch of people who applied after me that got in.

Don't think this is always the case, since people a few pages back went from Decision Pending to Review Complete to Congrats!

I submitted very recently a little over a week ago, so I'm hoping this means I am under review.

Ew, I don't love it but that sounds plausible.

I guess I can live with that. Knowing they didn't immediately throw my file in the trash gives me a little hope.

Status Updater changed to "Decision Pending" today

Any idea what this means? Has a decision been reached, or is the file just being read?
