Hope so! Someone that applied a few days ahead of me w/ 3.26 and a 161 got accepted with a full ride today - so hoping my decision is around the corner
@wealthofnations: well there ya go, Nebraska seems to be pretty splitter friendly as long as your LSAT meets their median or 75th percentile
So did ppl accepted have their apps go “UR” on the status checker? Because I applied 09/05 and my application simply says “we have your application” updated 10/22
11/10/23: Mine still says reports generated. No UR note. Applied 10/24.
Sorry, should note last status update was 10/30.
I feel like they threw my app in a drawer somewhere, I'm the skeleton on the park bench waiting for Nebraska
Sent an email today just to verify I was good to go and now my banner says the app is under review lol not sure if that's pure coincidence or if I really was in a drawer somewhere and the email nudged my app into review

@wealthofnations: mine updated to that too today but i didnt send an email and sent it in last month. Im thinking we will see some decisions next week
They actually told me that I raised an issue in there system - apparently they swapped over to a new system a some apps that were under review just weren't showing as such

Interesting! Good thing you sent the email. Maybe mine was caught up in the system too
I reached out today (12/2), curious to see if anything changes. Not really in a rush to receive more R's or WL's though, lol.

@BeneficialBetterYogurt: does yours show the “in review” banner?

Lol believe it or not, it didn't a few hours ago when I sent the email. NOW it shows it. No response, but the banner is there now. Earlier today it was just the marketing emails note.
Got my decision today. Nebraska is the goat for these generous scholly offers - really takes the weight off for the rest of the cycle

@wealthofnations: congrats on your A! Approximately what time of day was the decision made, and how did they notify you?
Appreciate you! Got a call at around 5:30 est. Missed the call but received all of the details in the voicemail. Said email to follow.
Congrats everyone! Just got mine yesterday as well, the full scholarship is amazing. Seems like a very generous school

Thinking about emailing if there is no decision before the holidays. If there really was a issue with the system, I feel like sending out an email sooner rather than later could be good. @wealthofnations what exactly did you email them?
@PhysicalDefectiveMillipede: It would seem as though after I sent that email that they adjusted their systems internally (I saw someone else note that their status portal adjusted around that same time). I basically just inquired and said, "hey I'm sorry to even do this, sorry for being a neurotic applicant blah blah blah, but I went complete in September and have seen some other people go UR - just wanted to make sure I didn't muck anything up and am good to go"
Applied at the end of Jan with a 3.38 and 159. Hoping for the best!
@AbandonedMaterialHummingbird: good luck!!
I heart really wants to go to Nebraska - but my nKJD, old man mind really doesn't want to move 20 hours across the country
My heart*
@wealthofnations: Where are you from? Born and raised in the Lincoln area but live in Chicago now. Have heard nothing but good things about the Nebraska faculty and the environment there. Seems to be one of the better schools in the middle-of-the-pack range.
Haven't applied anywhere else at this point. Just thought I would take a stab in the dark as they seem to be pretty generous and friendly to late-ish applicants.
@AbandonedMaterialHummingbird: I'm from the east coast, currently living in VA. I totally agree though, the school has good vibes all around. If I were a tad younger I would absolutely be going there - but I'm getting older (just turned 30) and my entire family lives on the east coast. I've actually moved across the country several times over the past decade too since undergrad haha so not sure I can stomach it again
Rooting for ya though! It's absolutely a great place to end up and like you said, they are extremely generous with scholarship money.
