so i submitted my application slightly over a month ago and have still not gotten the complete email. Is it okay to email them asking at this point or should i just wait?

That's actually a really nice email. While it's slightly hold-ish in nature, I think they're just trying to connect with students that they know have been waiting a long time to hear something, so it's a very cool gesture. I did not get it, obviously, but congrats to all those who did, since you've still got a shot! I, on the other hand, would like to run for mayor of Rejectionville.

Odd to be rejections or even waitlists. Especially with Dean Pless saying how little applications are up. I would also find it odd being as I have only been complete since 12/18 and excluding the break thats only around 2 weeks at complete to get a rejection. They must have hated me.

I have already accepted a rejection letter is coming. Sorry for the holds today. Hopefully you will get in.

Has anyone got anything in the mail from the 1/11 batch? My mail already came today and nothing.


My mail hasn't arrived yet. Are you willing to share numbers? (at least LSAT score if nothing else)

I'd say that after the rejection and hold waves, hearing nothing is a good sign.

Is early october not considered "early in the cycle"? Are most of these holds from September submitters?

If anyone else out there is working on a Darrow essay, will you shoot me a PM? I'd love to swap.

well, any yield concerns could be more effectively mitigated by giving darrows to everyone in yp territory rather than sending a sort of cryptic hold email. i hope the admissions office sees my logic here and comes around.
