I believe that's what Dean Pless said. If you search back, he said something along the lines of having no more files on hold by the end of the month.

Two questions -- one for anyone and one for Dean Pless:

1. Does UIUC have an Open House or anything like that coming up over the next few months?

2. Dean Pless - Given that it's now January, are those of us who went complete immediately following the December LSAT at a significant disadvantage in terms of scholarship consideration?

So Dean P, when will those who are currently under review receive a decision?

Didn't he say this Friday would be decisions?

We have Admitted Student Open Houses on March 5th and April 9th. We will also be having events in DC, NYC, Houston and Chicago. That info will be sent out to all admitted students in the next few weeks.

I don't anticipate any changes in our scholarship offers.

Sorry about your sister, if only I had known.

Decisions on Friday. Big, big batch.

Dean Pless,

Any chance you want to squeeze the Dec 17th completes into that big, big batch? How about just mine? ;)

Are there any new ones going into review other than the dates which you gave?

Any more details about the event in DC? The acceptance email said more info would be sent in January. Depending on my work schedule this might be the event I end up going to.

Might I suggest dinner followed by an open bar at the Mandarin Oriental?

I don't think so. Still have a lot to review, plus all the current holds. Sorry. There will be another big batch next week.

Friday's batch will include those complete by 12/16...so it is likely that you will have to wait a week or two for a decision.


Thanks for the head's up!

Sorry, if I am early this week you guys might expect that every week.

This week's notifications will mark the beginning of our Wait List. I have talked about this before, but I thought I would post a reminder on how I handle the Wait List. I will send out a Wait List notice and you will have to opt on to the list. We use a very simple online survey for you to state your preference. Once on the list, I will send emails at regular intervals with updates. If you don't respond or reply with a "no thanks" we will withdraw your application.

Just to clarify, this doesn't mean that there will be no more acceptances in the forthcoming batches, correct? Just that you will stop putting people on hold and begin to use the wait list?

Right, there will be admits, denies and Wait List offers in this next batch and all of them moving forward.

Dean Pless,

There's no reason of course why I need to know this - I'm just curious. You mention all of the files that you have to review. Do you personally go over and ultimately make the decision on every application? Do you have other people read files and they make suggestions.... Or do others have the ability to ultimately say yes or no on the more obvious files? Are you the tie-breaker? Just curious about whether and how the workload is divided up. Again, this is not important information, just something that I'm very curious about.

In other words, do I send you cookies or someone in your office?
