Much better than last year's straight 'Go away.' Also have good company with the deferral - I really was expecting a ding.

A step in the right direction...


ruleser when did you go complete? Do you think it even matters at this point, because they might have gone through all EA apps regardless of completion date? (that's what it seems like from the high # deferrals)

It doesn't feel like THAT many people have been deferred. Well under half the EA applicants on TLS it seems. There are still a lot of us that went complete early (10/1 here) that are still at EA Complete.

I sent in on 9/1, went complete 10/1 (but retook the LSAT, so might have been held until 10/26, but said EA Complete 10/1)

EDIT: Think we'll have to wait and see what's next with the rest of the EA's to know if it matters - if there are accepts/rejects, then we'll know something; if they just defer everyone, then not so much. But still, don't think Cornell would send a letter like this if they thought you were auto-reject...

But regardless of how many have been deferred do you think that they have already deferred the majority of the people that are going to be deferred for EA, overall?
EDIT: In other words, are the rest of us slightly more safe with regards to deferral after this seemingly big wave?

I'm still EA complete at 11/5 (obviously later than 10/1)....but maybe I'm just in the next batch, I think everyone who went DR recently was completely before 11/5

Oh I see what you're saying. Yes, to some extent I think you're right. There may have been a cutoff date though which I guess is your point. In other words if you submitted before, say, 11/1 and weren't deferred in the last batch then you're probably not getting deferred at all.

1) Anyone out there with a EA complete date after 11/05 that has been deferred?

2) Any predictions or educated guess as to when the next DR will occur? Any guesses on when we'll start seeing acceptances? I'd guess before the weekend hopefully.

My prediction is that the DRs occurred today, 12/2, or will occur very very soon (perhaps tomorrow). If last year was any indication Cornell made its decisions "in secret" on 12/2 and only notified people of these DRs on 12/5. So my guess is that for many of us our fate has been chosen, but we don't find out that our fate has been chosen until maybe Friday or Saturday.

For some schools, yes, I know this to be the case. I'm not sure about Cornell, as their status checker changes so infrequently.

Do we need to break out the guillotine from the Berkeley thread? :D

I'm not afraid.

Here are some more predictions:

1. The University of Chicago's Fermilab will discover the Higgs Boson "God" particle before the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland does, adding to our very long list of Nobel Prize winners. :P

2. A Republican president will win in 2012. (Note: These predictions aren't based on personal wishes.)

3. The world will NOT end in 2012.

4. UCLA Law will crack the Top 14 in the next five years.

5. There will be at least THREE substances, chemicals, etc. that we currently expose ourselves regularly to that are found to be cancer causing, though we aren't aware of them yet.

And I have many more, and I am confident in all of my predictions.

what are your stats if you don't mind me asking?

i just disagree with #2 (or i just hope it doesn't happen). But everything else is quite plausible

#2 will probably happen because the economy is bad, and people need someone to blame. Back to the dark ages.
