Previous years have first wave of decisions as early as 11-20s to as late as 12-10s.

The fact is, it could be any time and no one really knows what will or won't happen.
gosh i am so nervous that my substatus is blank:(
@lawschoolscaries: when did you apply?
could just be it hasn't been UR11 yet
Mine was blank for sooo long and I applied early nov
just changed to 12/05 yesterday

@Hopingandpraying:

@KurlyJefferson: LMAO maybe but god please let it be a good one

*than
someone on reddit said they applied ED and got put on hold 12/10 last year, then got accepted RD on 12/13
