It's fun as hell, that's why I do it... :D

Or at least do away with the "decision letter mailed/decision made" stuff and just announce the decision on the status checker site.

Anyone with a December retake get a 'decision mailed' message on their checker today? I applied in early November but officially went complete on 1/4, I hope it won't be too much longer!

based on all their communication so far, I would venture to guess snail mail.

From the W&L "complete" email:

"[W]e assure you that no news is indeed good news - as long as you have not received a decision, you are being actively considered for a seat at W&L Law."

I really don't think they're lying.

Same here. Complete 11/19/09. Hoping that the lack of change in status does not equal rejection.

Status checker changed to:

Current Status: Decision reached; notification pending.
Current Status Date: 1/14/2010

The decision letter sent date was 1/13

Should know soon!

Good luck 1/13 decisions!

LSN has them coming in March, but apparently a few have already been WLed this year. Maybe they are trying something new?

That was what I was referencing, but her LSN profile does not represent as much. :?

Robin600 said she was WL'ed. It's back in this thread somewhere...

No: Robin complained about not having been accepted yet and said that she thought she would be WLed.

Based on past history, it looks like getting a decision this early is a good thing.

Of course, I'm still sure I was denied.
