Wait until Friday, I'll be up there visiting. I'll tell them if they take me, they have to take Oneforship.

Note: If they call me out on it, I will more than likely back down. Nothing personal.

I'm still at "Application Completed" 11/3

Does it change to "Under Review", and then goes to DR?

Yes. I wouldn't expect a decision for about a month or so though, at least.

I've been at "Application Completed' since 10/28...and it seems that most people spend at least two weeks under review prior to receiving a decision, so we're in for a wait.

What to do with my life now that the LSAT is done and my law school apps are all in...


I wish someone had warned me before I started the LSAT, because this doesn't seem to be ending:
1. Study for LSAT, take LSAT, wait for score.
2. Prepare apps, submit apps, wait for completion.
3. Study status checkers, obsess about decisions, wait for decisions.
4. Study admitted schools, visit admitted schools, wait for scholarship offers
5. Decide on a school, submit deposit, wait to attend.
6. Work ass off, try to get a job offer, wait for job offers.
7. Work.

I might have just screwed the rest of my life.

I think you might have missed a crucial element:

1. Study for LSAT, take LSAT, wait for score. Drink.
2. Prepare apps, submit apps, wait for completion. Drink.
3. Study status checkers, obsess about decisions, wait for decisions. Drink.
4. Study admitted schools, visit admitted schools, wait for scholarship offers. Drink.
5. Decide on a school, submit deposit, wait to attend. Drink.
6. Work ass off, try to get a job offer, wait for job offers. Drink.
7. Work. Then Drink.

Obsessively hit refresh on all your status checkers.

Edit: Just checked mine. They haven't changed. Will check again in 5 mins.

Just wanted to drop in to say congratulations to those of you who've been accepted and good luck to those of you waiting! If anyone has questions, feel free to PM me (I'm a 1L in section 3/curriculum B).

For all those with "Decision Rendered", does your status checker reflect the current status as "Application Completed" as well?.

Mine shows the following -

Current Status: Application Completed
Current Status Date: 11/9/2009
Decision Status: Decision Rendered
Decision Status Date: 11/9/2009

I am wondering if this is the same as everyone else with decision rendered?

Yes that's the way it always is. You're good to go.

So I took a look at the data from 2008's LSN, and I really don't think there is anything to worry about for anyone getting a decision this month, perhaps until the very end of the month. I think this has been discussed already, but take a look at the chart of last year's GULC decisions in November. [This chart is only %s, not total numbers]

Image

The image shrinks a bit when I post it here, but the visual is the same. The only rejections come on the 28th last year for November. In total, on LSN GULC sent out 103 acceptances in November to only 3 rejections.

So anyone who goes to decision rendered here this month really has nothing to worry about from GULC.

Friday it is...let's meet outside near the steps and storm the place quietly. If they ask us to leave, there is a starbucks nearby where we can mourn our defeat.


i'm in DC too...i'll be there with an old school boombox to provide getaway distraction in case things go awry.

Looking through LSN, it's amazing how few November acceptances end up attending Georgetown.

It wouldn't be surprising if Georgetown knows and accounts for that.

JUST when I was starting to feel confident that the letter for me in the mail is an acceptance you had to say that.

Maybe they will account for it by continuing the trend???...... this is SO stressful!!!

I'm sure they're aware of it, just makes me wonder why they go through the trouble of working on our applications ahead of everyone else, even the ED's. My speculation as to what a school has to gain from giving an early acceptance has always been that maybe those people who do one app a week will choose not to waste money on *some* other, comparable schools that they haven't already applied to because they have Georgetown in the bag. But even if that's the case, it appears that it doesn't change much for Georgetown.

He means every year, not just this year. Meaning that they are not combating the trend, but rather compensating for it elsewhere.

Edit: Well, the profile says Female, so perhaps I should say "She means", but I'm hesitant to believe that a female would have a Bender avatar.
