My checker says:

"Decision Status:
Decision Status Date: 1/19/2010"

Any idea why decision status is blank? My numbers are 3.74 and 165, so I don't see why they would WL/reject me.

I don't think it means anything. My Decision Status Date is 10/22/09, but my application didn't go complete until 01/08/10.

Nice big envelope in the mail today. Postmarked 1/21.

No explicit mentioning of $$, but the letter reads that they will be contacting again soon.

I got the call Thursday, but didn't check my voicemail until today. What a wonderful surprise.

I applied late with a 166+ / sub-3.0

The going rates around Ballston ran easily into $1000 range with a one bedroom / studio, Arlington is expensive, even with the housing crash. However, the situation improves if you start heading in the West Falls Church (Metro Station) direction. Personally, you should try Craiglist and find room mates, where it is possible to split the bill for as low as $600 to live in a upscaled town house.

Good hunt'N.

For recently admitted PT applicants, how long did it take for you to receive the decision after your file went complete? From LSN it seems that PT takes longer than FT. Thanks!!

I think GMU is on the top of my list right now, but I'm wondering how the experience will be coming from Texas.


At least I will attend, and I am out of state........

If you had to forecast: What position on the USNWR rank will GMU occupy in the 2011 law school rankings released in March of this year?

Hopefully they can shake their backward trend.
