This is ridiculous. LSAC needs to regulate. Schools are blatantly abusing the admissions process in order to protect their stats, and applicants are paying for it in drawn out waits that can, absurdly, drag on into August, until the day class begins. I paid $65-$80 to apply to each school and that should entitle me to a timely decision at least, if not also a responsive admissions staff. All we have to do is create enough noise to get a NYTimes/Chronicle of Higher Ed article and we should make progress. At least the WSJ blog. Who's with me?

Geez you're really demanding a lot here. I didn't apply to UVA and I already withdrew from Vandy.
In any case, got the Columbia letter today...I'm in reserve with everyone else in this thread. I'm not staying on it though. The scholarship at Georgetown is too tempting and I think that I'll be happier there than I would have been at Columbia anyway (culture of DC and such).
Best of luck to everyone though...hope that they let a bunch of you in!
Got my second reserve letter yesterday. Was expecting a rejection since I didn't send a LOCI. I think someone on this thread described the three reserve stages as "are you patient, really patient, or really really patient."

Communicate now with those who not only know what a legal education is, but can offer you worthy advice and commentary as you complete the three most educational, yet challenging years of your law related post graduate life.
I just got my reserve letter today; I was held until now, and it was still first reserve. I don't have much of a chance (169/3.75), but I'm staying on the waitlist anyhow. And I'm glad I'm not rejected - yet.
