I didn't get the email, but I saw my A via the lawhub portal / status checker. Their instructions say to wait for an email soon after. Based on what Dean Simmons said, they are just starting on December applications this week and trying to get a few out each day. Y'all got this!!

@aziza: I just saw all the people that got accepted in the past few days. I'm glad decisions are rolling out.

I saw Dean Simmons in person yesterday to hand her my deposit money order. Her office had an "open" sign but was locked, so I waited 30-40 minutes and enjoyed the ambiance of the school until she was available. She said she had been in the process of testing the new portal.
Hopefully the portal to pay electronically is up before asd
