Is there any reason why an RD applicant would go UR after me but get a decision before me?
I'm also RD
17:58
Who knows? The ad comms are juggling so many apps around, and that renders the UR indicators as speculative at best
what does ur mean
under review?
Yeah I'm hoping it's just a "that's just how things happen sometimes"
Yes UR is under review
anyone got a uchicago status checker yet? mine has no check mark next to the cas report even though it shows as sent on LSAC
Will applying in December put me at disadvantage? I’m considering retaking LSAT 4th time. Have gotten 160 twice and first one was canceled
@NaturalKindBarnacle: I would send them a quick email or call.
They've been pretty quick about sending received/completed emails
@WhimsicalComplexTuatara: Are your practice tests higher? December isn't a bit later than ideal, but one extra point is worth it.
is*
@WhimsicalComplexTuatara: I'm also debating whether to take October or November, I feel like Nov I'd be more prepared but I don't want to apply so late
@NaturalKindBarnacle: Yes, I applied the morning of 02SEP and got a receipt email that afternoon.
For anyone who applied to Minnesota, I emailed their admissions office and they said they're experiencing delays in responding to applications due issues with their new database.
Round 2 law school apps let's do this!!!
@SecurityMatters: and in your status checker did you see all items were checked?
should i be worried i havent gotten status checkers from several schools i applied to on 9/10?
always take when you're more prepared IMO
3-5pts can be the difference between 0 dollars and 100k scholarship
from what I'm reading applying in December shouldn't hurt you too much just make sure you have everything else in your app ready to go. Last year I had hangup after hangup and got pushed to apply at the very end of the cycle so I decided to pull my apps and try this year instead
anyone else getting the "unknown error" for HLS?
16:27
@HereticalWarmAntibodies: just fixed "unknown error" for HLS
Thanks guys, I'm gonna take in Nov & feel so much better about it
@NaturalKindBarnacle: Yes, all boxes checked and application was marked complete on the 14th
thanks @cryptanon! Can you make it so that I can leave "first choice school" blank? I don't love that there is no option for "blank" so it is currently sitting on golden gate
and their super hot night school babes
10:04
Does anyone know anything about St. John's video interview?
@HereticalWarmAntibodies: so it wouldn't show up in your profile at all?
@cryptanon: I think a couple schools (I've noticed this w usc and washu) have changed their status checker systems? Like instead of logging via a separate status check username and password, the status checker link takes you to the LSAC login page and you have to log in with your LSAC account
10:47
@allymcbeal: Hey there! They said that they'd be open October 1st.
idk if anyone else has noticed that change w some schools' status checkers
yeah I think it's a new thing, kinda interesting. You just login with your LSAC instead of making a dedicated login for the school
I think its kinda weird though because GWU can't even get it to work lol
have you figured out how to configure it on lsd? i haven't been able to!
nope but I also haven't really tried so probably not the best data point. I've been doing those ones manually
@abjectchickadee: thanks for the heads up, i'll update the bots for those schools
Im pretty convinced they made that switch because of these automated checker sites
anyone go UR at Chicago
maybe, but it'd be far easier and more effective to add a captcha to the login page. could just be LSAC trying to improve and streamline the experience
im UR @ uchicago @spicymushyeel
thought it was nice to get a fee waiver from tulane, apparently it's waived for everyone
well played
this is like the 3rd school that has sent me those personalized fee waiver emails only for it to be waived for all applicants lmao
Anyone else have their Wash U interview today?
ASU status checker reported a change but the status still is UR. Any reason behind that?
im confused... ive been looking at the recent decision list and people are saying they're getting in at UVA and UGA and when I click on their profile it says school year 2021-2022 but some people have their sent dates as sep 4 and then other schools at dec 4... does the 2021-2022 mean last cycle or this cycle?
Some people made mistakes in setting up their cycle apps
2021-2022 is this cycle. Some people just accidentally put in their dates for last cycle this year
thank you!
@ReverseSplitterDreaming: It probably means you went UR2. Did the status date change?
Yes it changed to today. I didn’t know
Oops. I didn’t know that ASU did UR2!
happened to me too 4 days after I went UR @reversesplitterdreaming
Still UR smh
Oh wow so there may still be a bit more waiting
I noticed that it happened to a batch of people
Andddddd rejected
oh no
im sorry :(
It’s okay. It’s good to have a feeler like this so I can continue to improve my application!
fingers crossed now 🙏
@ReverseSplitterDreaming: did your "file complete" date update on the status checker as well?
Sorry :(
Sorry Mate
What do you guys look for in a law school that makes it a school you want to be at
just went UR2 at UVA
anyone else?
I went UR2 today too! I'd forgotten the feeling of getting a status update lmao
Me too! Also went UR2 at UVA today.
I just went UR1 on the 13th so I’m a little…concerned but hey, gotta chase those status change highs!
I went UR2 at UVA yesterday too
I went UR1 on the 15th so it seems like Complete-UR1-UR2 moves pretty quickly this early in the cycle
oooh, that's good to hear! I applied in Dec last cycle so things were not moving this quickly haha
is it a good sign if you move quickly to UR2? or does it matteR?
What does UR2 mean?
11:11
@crocluvr19: So when you go to the status checker, there is a status type you'll receive called "Under Review"
11:11
It'll switch to it when your application is considered complete and undergoing review by the admissions committee
11:12
And you'll typically get a date associated with the status change. For example, let's say you went UR on 9/16
11:12
UR2 is when you're still Under Review but the date changes
11:13
It's speculated to be that your application has moved further along in the review process, went to a second ad comm, is prepared to make a decision soon, etc.
17:59
is it possible to search by ED or do we have to do that manually?
so i submitted my apps today and am so confused on how to check status and link that to here, like do schools send an email with the log-in?
@whyisthelsatsohard: congrats!! so yes, schools will send you an email with your log-in info. it might take a while for some schools, so don't get worried! i know for example that I think Mich said they wouldn't be sending out status checkers until October
heads up too that some schools don't use status checkers!
ok so I wrote a one-page Why Notre Dame essay but now I'm looking at the instructions (which I should have done earlier) and it says "no more than two pages"
please tell me it won't look bad just to submit the one pager lmao
why essays are annoying sometimes
why do u want to go here
because you guys have good employment stats
but I think 1 page is fine
hopefully they think i'm enthusiastic AND concise
I think 1 pg is totally fine
Half the schools say "you have this amount of space but really we LOOOOVE concise writers." so as long as you felt like you got your point across then I wouldn't sweat the 1 pg part
has anyone gotten status checkers from fsu, miami, or emory?
nope @crocluvr19
last cycle, they took awhile
@cryptanon: did you remove the option for "accepted, withdrawn" and "accepted, attending"? I don't see them in the dropdown
16:52
@crocluvr19: I have from FSU, however it shows my file is still missing materials from LSAC to this day when I submitted my app on the third of this month
hoping for a random tuesday ASU wave
@blinky07: same ;(
Anyone else just get an LSAC forum follow-up email from an NDLS student?
has anyone heard anything from asu?
3-4 people got accepted today according to reddit and lsdata
not me tho smh
fingers crossed soon
anyone else notice their percentile for june 2021 lsat revised down (slightly) or am I imagining things?
yep haha, they all decreased
Everything 173 and below decreased I believe
yea mine went down 1 percentile point
is anyone else getting the same email over and over again from utk that says it could take at least 8 weeks I've gotten like 7 of the same email
give penn state wave pls
11:40
Is there anywhere where one can find the new percentiles? I am curious about where a 170 stands now
@somethingspecial: yeah it's annoying the crap out of me--glad I'm not the only one getting them
@somethingspecial: YES! I have gotten every night at midnight since I applied
Maybe I'll respond to the next one and see what they say
I emailed them I'll let you know what they say
@Unamused: They said they have fixed it now!
@UnbiasedCreepyChicken: ^
Does a school asking for residency information several weeks after applying indicate anything?
It means they want to know where you live
I don't think anything beyond that. Maybe a forgotten form where you were supposed to click non-resident or resident.
Can we get some MFin waves
Downside of applying early in the cycle...waiting forever for decisions.
I'm trying to make myself patient and not worry till mid-November. ASU spoils us for real.
12:36
submitted ASU two days ago, rest of my apps going out this weekend... so it begins
Good luck! That's so exciting
ASU UR3?!?!?!?!
this is the third time my asu app went ur
People getting UGA acceptances who applied after me is making me think I'm getting donged...
@pilkyboids: It's weird because when I met with an adcom a few weeks ago, they said they wouldn't be making any decisions until like Novemberish. The acceptances might just be extraordinary applicants
I thought so too
omg penn state A tho :')
it happen to me for ole miss last cycle I applied late in the cycle and they were already full so they accepted me already for this cycle so it could be situations like that
@blinky07: did Dickinson send you an e-mail yet?
My ASU app just went UR again too
not yet, I'm assuming they'll send one tomorrow honestly
maybe a friday wave?
@Unamused:
@CrimsonBuffalo: i would love that... my asu app went ur THREE TIMES
@blinky07: mine just came through!
15:34
For those who have received unsolicited fee waivers from schools, should those reflect when you first begin the application and it shows the application fee $ amount? Or does the waiver apply at the end when you're checking out?
@Nsqui: just did one and it showed up when you checked out as $0
@GoofyFuturisticFlounder: So I started this late last cycle which was not great but I learned a lot watching alot of people do well and alot of people fall flat. First, just like college apps have schools that are a resonable reach, a moderate chance, and fall back schools. Next thing and probably one of my biggest deciding factors was geography. Where I want to end up. (easier to land a job in x state if you are a graduate of a x state school). Look at good or bad reputations of the school. One
15:54
@KWFlyingMonkeys: Sweet, thank you
@Unamused: mine just did too LOL
One lesson I learned last year, for first time appliers, is to keep all school status checkers the same password when you change it. They will send you a temporary log in and then you change. Somehow since it is all linked through LSAC, if you change one you will not be able to get in the others
16:19
Got the Kira Interview Invite from UT Law as a super reverse splitter...
ayyy congrats!!
16:20
Thanks. Excited :)
Has anyone heard from PennState Dickinson? I wish they were as speedy as ASU :(
They do waves multiple days a week it seems
Also, they don't do UR from what ive heard. Mine went from completed to an acceptance
@SerbianKitty: I heard back in about 2.5 weeks, hang in there! :)
Ooooh! Congrats on your acceptance, Hummingbird!
What are your opinions on how many LORs to submit to Michigan? It says they require 1 but encourage 3 - I have 2 recommenders, do we think that is sufficient?
I don't really think I could get a third that would say anything different about me
I see that under URM you can specifically select your race and see that Middle East/ North African is an option. Does that mean North Africans get a URM boost?
I see some people getting into schools below both medians as a URM with that option selected. I was under the impression us Arabs are just "white"
Interesting. I'm half Arab, and I didn't even bother checking the URM indicator on this site
I didn't make it a huge deal on my apps because I had the same impression as you
theres no boost, I'm also middle eastern
*Insert Fireworks* Congrats!! I went there for undergrad :)
@JoyousCeruleanHummingbird: How did they notify you??
@JoyousCeruleanHummingbird: Congrats!!!
Congrats! When did you apply?
Just went UR2 at Cornell 🧐
I've done all the apps I planned on but like I suck at the waiting game and keep wanting to impulsively apply to more places
@CrimsonBuffalo: can i ask what your stats are??
asu dong :(
@songtoaseagull: my stats are super low. I think the only thing saving me is I’m an officer in the army, combat vet, non trad student
I fully expect to be rejected from Cornell lol
so sorry @blinky07
UR2 at Berkeley and UPenn. Wish me luck :0
@CrimsonBuffalo: I expect nothing but acceptances for you. Good luck homie!
@ColesLaw2022: thanks! You too!
@CrimsonBuffalo: thanks! sending good vibes your way
@ColesLaw2022: when did you submit?
^ wondering the same thing
@Unamused: sorry I’m super late to answer this but my status checker updated at around 9:30 am and then I got an email at around 11! :)
@CrimsonBuffalo: i went complete/UR on sept 20!
@songtoaseagull: submitted B 9/06 and UP 9/17
16:59
Can you message an applicant that you're viewing?
is the quimbee deal still going on
and if you buy it is it for this year or next year lol
12:54
4 apps down
12:54
crankin' away
anyone ever respond to emails for events and thank them to show interest? A school id love to attend sent an email for an event happening but i work and its a 5 hour drive. id go if i could! not sure if this is a no no though as far as the email goes
@somethingspecial: I do the samething. Waiting makes me nervous and then I think maybe I won't get into my schools so I want to apply to more
@SecurityMatters: I've heard of others a couple weeks ago also not getting an email from uminn
Literally have all my apps completed and ready to go but I'm too afraid to press send lol
15:27
@hatylotto: I feel that. I spent 4 hours last night and another 4 this morning just staring at my Michigan optional essay because I just couldn't get myself to attach it and be done lmao
@Honeycomb94: I emailed the admissions office, they said they're going to take a while to get everything settled after a database shift, so hopefully they start reaching out soon!
Anyone attending the Cornell virtual open house today?
What do people typically wear to those?
@CrimsonBuffalo: I went a few weeks ago, I can’t remember whether or not cameras were on for attendees but if they are, a polo/blouse or anything else bus cas is totally appropriate
@JoyousCeruleanHummingbird: awesome. Thank you
