I was on the "app reviewed. held for further review" wagon. Just checked bc i saw that als06h was having some weird things happen. Now I'm under review again.

btw i have a 163...come on uga! haha

even though I guess I could get denied if they are reviewing me again...

Just checked mine and I went from "Held for Further Review" to Admitted. I know they are having technical issues with the status checker right now, but this is just mean....

i would had i not looked earlier tonight and seen that I was still being held for further review at 7:30. Something is fishy and I don't think they are updating decisions late at night.

Also in...extremely not cool if it's a decoy, I can't handle another W&L style fakeout.

Your application is being reviewed by the Admissions Committee.

Back to under review this morning, as opposed to "Congratulations, you have been admitted to the class of 2013".

I have plenty of patience, but head fakes suck soooooooo bad. Second one in two weeks at UGA.

Damn, that really stinks. I hope it all works out for you. I wonder if this glitch will create some animosity towards UGA, I know it did when W&L screwed up.

Now when I log in I can't even see my status... just the link to the LSAC status checker for which I do not have a login/password. Did UGA e-mail yall the l/p for this page?

Just got the held for further review message... I guess it can be a good thing, although it is chopping my goal of getting into a T20...

UGA is 35 right?

Well I called... I never received an "app received" email, and I never got a status checker. So I called today to rant, but the lady told me I had been admitted already. So I was just like... thanks bye!

Just called the admissions office because I also received the "File reviewed. Held for further review" She said that does not mean I have been wait listed. It means that my application has been reviewed and now they are sending it to a different committee and that a decision hasn't been made. She said that if we are wait listed it will say so.

This UGA stuff is about to give me a heart attack!! My status checker said accepted 11/13/09, but I had heard about their problems with the online checker, so I was skeptical. I finally got my letter in the mail, but then my checker went back to saying "under review". I called (the woman was very nice) and said I was definitely accepted since I got a letter. She also checked the system to make sure. I have a 3.05/164 (NC resident) so you can understand my skepticism. Not a URM, but I do have a great personal statement/academic addendum that explains serious family issues (The kind that my undergrad school could verify parts of). Anyways, I think I'll be going to UGA since I doubt I'll get in to UNC, William and Mary, or Washington and Lee.

You're in-state in NC though, right? I'd say you still have a decent shot at UNC..we won't hear until at least February though, UGH.

I've been "held for further review" at UGA all this week, and haven't gotten any false alarms (be them status checker or otherwise), sooo...that might be a good thing? Hope so!

Can someone please explain to me how you are checking your status?? I don't want to bother the admissions office anymore.

I registered for the prospective student page, then I entered my LSAC #, but the link under "Application status" sends me to an LSAC status checker where I need an additional login and passowrd... did yall get a UGA e-mail with this additional login and passowrd?

Yeah, if you follow US News :) Whatever school I attend will actually be number 1, according to the lsatfromnc law school rankings. FYI, library footage will count!

I was accepted 15 days after submitting my app, then hearing there was a glitch made me think for sure my acceptance wasn't real. But I got my letter in the mail yesterday, sooo if what ^^^ says about the snail mail letter being real, I will not be so nervous anymore..
