Thanks for the congrats! The status check still does not say decision (it's still "complete"). My acceptance letter was dated the 5th and I got it the 6th. Good luck to you with your cycle.

I was priority track at Duke. They just took a little longer on mine for some reason. Best of luck on a great cycle. You will have no problems getting accepted.

They called my dad (he went there for his LLM) and told him that I had been admitted and that they wanted to let him have the oppurtunity of giving me the good news. I guess they were trying to add a personal touch. :) They said the letter was going out soon, so hopefully you'll be hearing some good news from them! :) Good luck!

Cornell came via snail mail and my status checker has links to the accepted student website and says I am an "accepted student". I think only those who have been accepted have that information on their status checker, so you might look for it! Good luck this cycle.

Congrats on getting in at Duke. I certainly hope to find myself in Durham in three semesters' time.

Your numbers seem good for Northwestern. Do you not have any WE? I'm surprised you were deferred.

Yup, I thought I wrote a pretty decent Why Penn essay (I mentioned visiting the school and falling in love with the campus, as well as pointing out specific programs of interest). I think you'll be fine, actually - the data on LSN seems to indicate that our #'s range usually entails an acceptance from Penn, so I'm probably just a fluke. Maybe they didn't like my PS or something :P.

Any insight into the defferal at Chicago? We've got really similar #s. I'm wondering if I should be expecting the same thing or worse.

Dude. It was waiting for me when I got home yesterday -- looks like lots of people got the same thing. Did they give you three prompts for an optional additional essay? If so, were they: 1. National primary? 2. Judicial Comp? 3. Recent Book/Movie? I'm wondering if everyone gets the same thing. It was great to get the CLS letter. I'm still going to give one of these essays a shot though. Prob end up in NYC either way, but in a sick way this "on hold" makes Chicago more attractive. If your absolute worst case scenario is deciding b/w Penn, UVA, & Gtown you're in pretty good shape.
