no deferral means that you missed the EA deadline:

Early Action Deferral : (JD only) Your JD application is ready for review by the Admissions Committee. Your JD application was not complete by the Early Action Deadline, so it was held over to the regular decision application pool. If your application was complete by February 1, you should receive a written decision by the next 8 to 12 weeks.

there's really no way to know what the actual decision is unless you get an email, something in the mail, or make a call to get your decision over the phone.

last year people were able to call and get their decisions. at least they gave out acceptances and deferred decisions over the phone. not sure about rejections.

Well to be fair, I am > 75th LSAT and around 25th GPA.

I'm not worried. I just want to know before I leave the country on the 19th.

Veritas, do ya mind if I ask when you went EA Complete?

I'm still EA Complete 10/28. I'm a reapplicant too, 161 LSAT on last years application and a 171 this time around. GPA is between median and 75th. I just hope they don't frown upon reapplicants :( .

I wouldn't worry, I'm sure you're in! I don't think they'd reject or waitlist applicants before they started rolling out acceptances.

If someone wants to call, just call and don't give your name or LSAC number. Just say "Hi I was wondering if it's possible to get my decision over the phone?" If they say no, then you just say "Ok, thank you" and hang up. If they say yes, then you're fine. I don't understand what the apprehension is about?

I think they're afraid that somehow they will figure out who they are and some how change their decisions from accept to reject. :P

All admissions offices should be open today. I'm at work looking at their status checkers, why can't they be at work updating my status? Hmmm???

Complete 11/16, still gave me the EA Complete.

I am very confused. My status says decision now, but I received a letter dated the same day as the decision asking for an interview. Why would they wan an interview if the decision has been made?
