What does the "pending verification" status mean?
It says everything is submitted so I'm not really sure why that's different than something like "under review" that other schools say
I submitted 11/1 and mine said pending verification until it went UR on 11/17. I emailed them about it, too, asking if there was anything I needed to submit to help them verify. They said nope, my apps was complete
@Bklig614: ^
well it changed 11/15 and then again on 11/17, so i've just assumed thats UR2 lol idk anything anymore
Got it. I applied 12/1 so I guess I'm just behind you. Thanks!
Did you guys apply for the Spring 2024 semester? Calendar says orientation is on 2 January. Still waiting on a decision, just hoping I haven't been rejected by ghosting.
@SourDisgustingKiwi: I applied for Fall 2024. Hopefully you hear back asap, that's gotta be super stressful, I'm sorry!
does anyone know of a chat for accepted students?
just got accepted!!!!!
Does anyone know if "new application received" is a bad thing? I submitted an updated transcript to LSAC so I'm assuming it's due to that but none of my other application statuses have changed
Nevermind I'm in review now lol
I went in review on 1/4 and then date changed to 1/10. Decision coming soon?
I'm still pending verification
A Today!
congrats ! when did you apply?
I’ve been waiting since November . I hope a decision will be sent out next week. I need to be patient.
I applied 12/26 so I probably have a while
A today!
applied 12.5
I finally just went to new application recieved after being on pending verification.. does anyone know how long it takes to go from new application recieved to a decision? & does new app recieved mean under review?
@Grego5116: sorry I just saw this. I applied in the first couple days of December, I think 12/2. Hope you hear soon!
has any one heard anything about Haub scholar interviews yet ?
Ive been UR since 1/12 i hope I find out soon
still no word from anyone lol
@lilavocado: did you go UR2 on 1/12 or just regular UR?
just regular, its been updated a few more times to in review since
Does anyone know if they just dont respond to applicants they arent accepting?
@lilavocado: not sure, they were responsive when I first applied. So pre decision
