I am in the same shoe as you. Have been complete since mid-november. My status date just changed once since then.

What is the hold up?! It defeats the purpose of applying on rolling admissions if they just set your application aside for later review.

Exactly!!!!
I thought AU would be one of the schools which I would have heard by now. I have heard from the schools that I did not expect to hear anytime soon.

1/15 Decision made for the PT program, complete a couple of days ago, GPA 3.82, but the LSAT sucks. Bad sign?

What the flip, how are so many people that applied way later than me getting decisions?.... Did my strong, diligently completed application get stuck behind a desk or something?? Why are the punishing us well-prepared punctual people???

Has anyone been denied outright cause I fear that's what's coming my way.... Oh, do they send you the decision in the snail mail?

Yup, the status checker just says "Decision made" and then they make you sweat it out as you wait for your mail. Although they sent my letter by priority mail so that was nice. Only took 2 days to get to Texas.

I just got the "decision made" adjustment per the status checker as well.... complete on Dec 30th so rather fast. The consensus (or maybe I'm willing it so) is that the faster your file is processed the more likely it's an admit, right? ;)

That's what I'm hoping for! My app went complete on 1/7 and it just changed to "decision made" today. That seems SUPER quick. This suspense over the weekend is going to torture me!!

They have to be admits - take a look on LSN and you'll notice a pronounced trend. With American U the dings take far longer from complete to decision than the admits. I say you're in. I think I am too. Enjoy the weekend!
