Does anyone have a "Fees" section? And if so, does it have anything there?

When did your status change to "application complete"? Was it Wednesday or Thursday?

Mine didn't. I'm still Full Time JD.

looks like Jaded's status changed on Tuesday, which adds to the Tuesday - Full Time and Wedneday - Part Time theory.

No scholarship info for me. I've received great offers from several schools but never actually with the acceptance call, so I think for most of us it's just a waiting game for the scholarship committee to review the file after the adcomms are done.

Confirmation:

Held for further review = denied early decision, moved to regular decision

Timetable can lead up through April. Sorry guys. :(

Maybe I should start withdrawing and just focus on attending Vandy. Law school is a crapshoot, I guess.

If history tells us anything...we're in for a loooooong wait. I'd say March/April :evil:

Seriously? What are you waiting for?

Now there's a charge.
