Just got this in e-mail

Greetings from W&L Law in Lexington, Virginia -

Thank you very much for your interest in W&L Law. We are currently experiencing some technical difficulties with our online status checker. We sincerely apologize for any confusion we may have caused. This is our first year with the Applicant Status Online feature, and we sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through these issues.

Thank you again for your interest in W&L Law, and, as always, if we can be of further assistance in any way, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Have a great weekend –

I edited out the name.

The problem is the email really doesn't tell us anything. Are decision being made? Are people who still have the decision mailed actually receiving decisions? A lot of people seemed to have been switched back from decision made to complete. I'm wondering if those of us who still have decision made are safe.

+1 to the "wtf W&L e-mail" crowd. Don't know what to make of that an hour or two after noticing that my letter was allegedly already mailed out.

I'm hoping what happened was that they goofed with certain applicants and had to change their status' back to complete.

Well..I'm starting to think that the people who were "decision mailed" and then switched to "complete" were the targets of that email. Only time will tell I suppose.

I called to ask what's up. The kind admissions officer said, "We have not mailed any decisions yet."

My status is the same - we'll see if it changes within the next 24 hours, but if that kind woman is to be believed, no one is getting anything anytime soon.

i just learned that my application is complete this morning and still got the status-checker trouble email, so it must have been across the board.

Sorry you all are dealing with the confusion. I just checked and am simply complete. Don't know if it ever said something else.

I called shortly after I received the "sorry we screwed up" email and was told simply to wait. I asked if decisions had been made or sent and the lady just told me to "wait until Monday."

Thanks W&L. I understand a mistake but its how you handle it that makes the difference.

Yeah I was told to wait as well. I still have decision mailed 11/5.

So, could "wait till Monday" mean we might get letters on Monday? It's a long shot, but I can still dream.

I wish I knew. I think we need to wait a few days and see if our status changes back to complete. You would think the mistake would have been fixed by now-- if in fact our current status is a mistake.

Guys, it's November 6th! Try not to freak out. Your apps are already in super early, which puts you in great shape anyways!

I know but its hard not to freak out when your status checker states decision mailed.
