A surprising ding from Minnesota today - YP maybe? Or something rubbed them the wrong way. 1-1-1 so far on my applications. Good luck to those of you still waiting. . .

Did you include any "Why MN" component in your PS? They ask for it in their PS prompt, and if someone with your numbers and no ties to the area didn't include it... I would guess YP.

And if you did include it... I still might guess YP. Those are some solid numbers. I bet you have a great cycle ahead of you, so I wouldn't worry about it too much...

I did do a why MN. I learned about the school working on class project that used materials from their Human Rights Center. I focused on that. I also had a targeted LOR from an former professor at their law school who now teaches in CA. Oh well. . .

I am in at Wash U so far so things could be a lot worse.

Wow, that is surprising. Nice to have that Wash U acceptance in hand, though. And at least you know you won't be freezing your ass off next year. Good luck with the rest of your cycle!

In yesterday via phone call.
Applied around the 13th, I believe.
167/3.4x...
I'm surprised I got in seeing some others on here. I did not write anything with expressed interest in Minnesota. Odd?

yea, again i have the same gpa and an lsat 2 points lower. my PS did not really target Minnesota. I feel like I should have been at least a WL. I'm a little confused about it but I do have some amazing offers in hand and don't think I could handle the cold anyway.

Does an updated In Review date generally mean anything?

Seriously? You applied 1 month ago? I applied nearly 2 months ago and have been "In review" for over a month.

I just updated to UR 2/12 (submitted 1/5, UR 1/8). Seems that the consensus here is that doesn't mean much, or am I wrong?

Maybe I shouldn't tell you my applied date then... 8)

Anyway, I applied around the same time as him and I got my decision by email on Wednesday afternoon.


Oh Sauer Grapes, you're always ahead of me in terms of getting decisions :p

I think its 3 status changes before you get a decision.

Mine went like this :

Complete 1/5
Under Review- 1/26-1/29/2-11

Got my decision (waitlist) an hour after my last status change.
