I am very seriously considering W&L. I visited Lex this summer and LOVED it but did not go to the law school specifically. I plan to visit in the next month or so.

I wouldn't worry too much. I'm in Phoenix and it took about 10 days for me to get mine.

Decision letter sent 1/13. Status still just says "Your application file is complete" dated 12/23. FWIW, I submitted in early Dec. and got a status checker in the middle of Dec.

Not sure if this is good or bad or if there's any way to know...

EDIT: Just noticed that there was an error on status checkers and it may not mean anything. Guess i'll find out soon! If a decision really was rendered does the checker change?

Sorry if this was asked already but is there an ASD coming up? And also, do they give you any sort of subsidy to head out for it?

I don't know. According to LSN no one was rejected or WLed until the first week of March.

Letter mailed. I checked my status and I almost closed after seeing the status had not changed and then the mailing section caught my eye. Mailed today...you would think they could update the whole status. I don't know what to think about it. My expectations are pretty low at this point, and I have no faith on the notions that "there were no rejections before )____ last year."

I wasn't even really paying attention when I checked and I barely caught the extra mailing. I'm surprised i went decision sent so quickly (seeing as other 1/13 DS people applied in Nov.) because i'm below both medians...which is why i'm thinking WL...but maybe they really liked me and I was put into the "Accept" pile!

As for WL's not going out until March, Robin was WL'ed a little while ago. I hope you get in, Robin!

WL sounds about right for how things have been going for me lately.

I have been complete since 11/18. No mailing. Pretty sure I will get a rejection in March.

lol, I'd like to count up how many times someone on this forum has seen something inconsequential on their status checker change and react by saying "OH MY GOD I'M GETTING WAITLISTED OR REJECTED!"

Law schools need to just eliminate the status checker system.

Man W&L are on their next set of DR, and I still haven't gotten my letter mailed out last week. Good luck to all of you!
