Since 10/23 for me. Don't expect an update anytime soon. They just initiated their stupid game of chicken with us, by extending the ED deadline. They will string us along every second they can, hoping we cave in and switch to ED.

In all likelihood I'd probably go to Vanderbilt or Georgetown over UVA but would like to see if they offer me anything.

I'm not sure a congrats is in order yet. Lol, will he be asking any impromptu questions? (Sorry, I know the answer's probably somewhere in this thread.)

A congrats IS in order, because getting an email to call means you are in. He will not ask questions, he'll just say "congrats, you're in" and the like.

If you're calling from a landline, 1 + area code + number.

If you're calling from a cell phone, you don't need the 1.

Congratulations!

if you're calling from Canada to the US, you'll probably need to dial 011+1+area code (434)+number

Good luck!

Thanks YCRev! I hope I'll be joining you next year. If I get in, I hope you and vanwinkle and the others will be my rabbis for the 0L to 1L transition.

Submitted 10/17. 3.94/168 URM, out of state - haven't heard a peep since "Pending Review/Decision" months ago. I'm sadly expecting a rejection or WL at this point.

Conventional wisdom is that URM cycles take longer because schools have to wait to see how their class is shaping up before they can admit some URMs for sure. Your LSAT is below median so they may be holding onto your app to make sure their LSAT numbers look good and they can take you without hurting their medians.

With your rockin' GPA, though, I'd keep up hope. You have a very strong shot at admission, just be patient.

If you are really a URM, you have every reason to hope to be admitted with those numbers.

As people who were accepted last year have pointed out ITT, many of the RD applicants who applied in October/November got accepted in late January last cycle.

Nice man, what was your original complete date? How long did it take after the ED contract was sent?

I sent mine today. Mr. Faulk said it was excellent news since they could now stop pretending to review my file and send me my "waitlist" email in a few days.


11/09 (original complete date). Well, I sent my ED form last saturday (overnight) and the office received it this morning (9:48 am this morning). So, I am guessing they opened it today and decided to give me that coveted email (from Mr. Dugas). Good luck to all the RD-turned-EDers, hope to see you all there!

Does it mean anything if your "File Complete, Pending Review/Decision" date changes?

I'm not sure what it means. I have noticed, though, that the review date did not change for the few people who were admitted by phone over the last few days.

Yeah, the review date hasn't been changing on the days ppl have been accepted.

Also, just in case adcoms are looking, I was joking earlier. Cordel Faulk was polite and said he would await the arrival of the ED contract.
