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
