I don't think this is true. Some people have had UR four times.

Does that mean I should be expecting a ding? UR 10/20 -> 11/19 --> DR 11/20.

Fuck. If this theory holds, it wasn't interesting enough to make it to a second pair of eyes.

No it seems that fewer reads could either be a good thing (the first couple readers give you an approval) or a bad thing, and more reads means they're unsure.

Why is it unlikely that 4 people read a person's application?

they haven't dinged you. So it's really good.

Maybe they are stacking all the peeps they want to admit with low numbers.... I think this holds true for URM to decide who to accept/reject. This is starting ot make more sense.

aren't there only like 3 peeps reading an application?

I think ususally 1 person is secretarial (answers phone) 1 actually makes sure apps are complete and there are like 3 reviewers. Although, this may just be a complete guess. lol. I don' t know.

We don't know that they haven't dinged me. All we know is that i had a decision rendered. I guess we also know from an above poster that they haven't even mailed out 11/20 DR letters yet. So it looks like there's at least another while to be waiting.

Well no one seems to have their numbers in their profile who updated end of day, so hard to tell if its likely accepts, rejects, or a mix. I applied ft/pt rd, unlikely at best for ft, but very possibly competitive for pt (but definitely not certain)

My status date also was updated for the fourth time today. Because I'm a big splitter (169/3.2, ED FT), I can imagine that my app is being passed around to a bunch of different people. I almost never say this, because I freak out about everything, but I'm not sure that multiple updates are bad, necessarily; if you were an auto-reject or an auto-admit, then you'd get reviewed once...they are clearly still trying to make up their minds about the rest of us.

I did a double-take there too but I think what was meant was that today was the fourth date change.

Not the fourth time today, but rather, my app was updated for the fourth time since I submitted in October, today.

I applied to both programs, but now my GULC status checker only indicates that I am under review for Part-time. Does this mean I was dinged from the Full-time program? Does anyone else have this? My status checker used to say "Both" but now under "Program Time" it just says Part-time. :(

If that theory were true, then I'd be trying to produce a hit new album about the apocalypse before I die instead of slaving in a law school.
