Whoa. :shock: I didn't know they did this. Yes, it sure as heck sounds like you were dinged from full time and are now being considered for PT only.

I have a similar GPA/LSAT split as you (although your LSAT is much better), plus I hold a graduate degree. I really hope they take me for PT!

Good luck!

I didn't even think of looking at that! I have had 4 updates but it still says "Both" for me...and my numbers aren't as good as yours.

Well, to try and put a positive spin on it, maybe it means they've decided to go with you for part-time - if you were a straight double-ding, it might just stay 'both' and you'd get your decision. I'm not sure if anyone who applied 'both' has gotten a decision and what has happened to their status check - I'm still at both.

I'm still at "both" as well. I wonder when the heck it will turn to DR! At this point, a DR is definitely not an acceptance!! :cry:

lol I know two people who went to DR today who are auto-admits, so don't be making that assumption.

LSN makes it look like there have been quite a few acceptances thus far. Many have been people with credentials like mine. Does it make sense to think that even if I am not in, I still have a chance, if only because there's no reason I should be an auto-reject? I just reviewed my application, and there were no errors or other problems. The only thing I have not seen, of course, is my LOR (I sent 3, all should be good).

Ah, of course I left out the word "necessarily". Thanks for pointing that out, Veritas. :wink:

EDIT: At this point, a DR is definitely not necessarily an acceptance!! :cry:

Yeah, all 4 have been "Under Review." Still no "Decision Rendered."

Do you think the admissions office is going to close early today?

ugh. Also... what do you guys think is the significance of being UR four times? lol. is that closer to a reject?

I don't know if this is just wishful thinking, but I sort of view it as, "lived to see another day."

My status date just changed to today's date. Does that mean a decision should be coming soon!?

Not unless it says decision rendered, I don't think. Many of us have had our review date updated multiple times.

This thread just caused me to log into my status checker again. Even though I already went DR. Even though I didn't select "FT/PT". Just to make sure it said Full Time.

ugh what is wrong with me

I just got an e-mail from Dean Cornblatt with a scanned copy of my decision letter where I was put on WL.

Better than an outright reject given my numbers.

Is there a thread with LOCI and other WL advice around that someone could link me to?

Good luck guys.
