What to expect when you're expecting 2018

Post by kippercd » Fri Jan 26, 2018 10:43 am

egregious ripoff of last year's thread, tyvm Scooters.



Yale:
No status checker. It's Yale.
Acceptances: Call, Followed by Email.
Area Code: 203
Not-acceptances: Asha says it will be by mail (thanks, Koala!) at the beginning of the cycle, but by email towards the end. (it appears now to be only by email)

Incomplete
Complete (took about a week for me, status changed for me 3 days before email was sent out)
JS1 (link sent via email, "Email - Interview Scheduled" appears in mailings section)
JS2
Admitted (status changed the day after my call)
Acceptances: Call (email if international)
Area Code: 617

Stanford:
Incomplete
Submitted for Review
Shouldn’t take more than a few days
No date changes
Acceptances: Phone
Area Code: 650
Last year, if your status changed to "decision letter sent" and you hadn't received a phone call or email, you had been waitlisted/dinged.

Columbia:
Incomplete
Complete (two weeks)
Interview Request (WAIT, WHAT??? start reading from here)
No date changes.
Acceptances: Email then Mail.
Holds: Email
Letter contains Butler or Hammy info; other merit aid comes later


Chicago :mrgreen:
Application Received
Application Complete (you get an email for this)
Application Under Review (UR 1) <- indicates first committee review of your file
(OPTIONAL) Application Under Review (UR 1.5) <- I did not receive this step, but I believe some people did
Invited for Interview
Application Under Review (UR 2) <- generally immediately after your interview, indicates that the interview is done
Application Under Review (UR 3) <- indicates second committee review of your file
Application Under Review (UR 4) <- most (all?) people get this in the days leading up to decisions being released
"Invited to Interview" -> Interview scheduled
Acceptances: Email, status checker changes simultaneously
Waitlists: Email, status checker changes simultaneously
Not Acceptances:

NYU
Application Being processed
Under Review (a few days)
UR 1 (date change)
UR 2 (date change)
Decision Letter Sent (DLS)
NYU goes from complete to UR quickly. You may not have the same number of UR dates. It appears there is a slight pattern to the UR changes (those who submitted on the 20th then have the 23rd, 29th, and 1st, before DLS on the 10th, etc) but not significant.
Acceptances: Call, but you can try to check the Admitted Students Website to see once you go DLS. This may take till around four or five EST to be up and running. The phone call can take a few days.
Area Code: 212 or 201 (thanks, Bom!) or 646 (thanks, Theopliske8711!)
Admitted Students Website

Penn
Complete
Under Review (UR 1)
Under Review Date Change (UR 2)
Acceptances: Call
Area Code: 215 (thanks, kershka!)
Non-acceptances: email
There appears to be a fast turnover from UR 2 to RD acceptance.

UVA :mrgreen:
Complete --> Under Review
No set timeline / discernible pattern from UR to interview/admit/WL/ding. For people with good to great stats, the interview seems to be a YP thing, and if the interview is with Dean Faulk, you may get accepted by the end of the interview.
Interview invite is an email directly from the person who will be interviewing you.
Dillard comes in the mail with acceptance packet (not sure if this is for everyone; I saw someone say they got a Dillard letter a week after their acceptance packet)
Acceptances: Status Checker/Phone call OR email
Non-Acceptances: Email. After you get this, your status checker changes to "Please check your email inbox for an update on your application status. If you did not receive the update, please contact the Admissions Office at..."
Area Code: 434
Scholarships: Phone call then snail mail for Dillards, snail mail for others (I think)

Berkeley
Application Received
Complete (a few days)
Under Review (a few weeks)
Berkeley has UR date changes but they do not appear to mean anything.
If you are pushed to faculty review...
Faculty Review 1
Faculty Review 2

Acceptances: Status Checker and simultaneous email OR phone call. People who get calls will also get an email later.
Area Code: 510
Not-acceptances: email

The Magical Michigan Status Checker :mrgreen:
Incomplete
Complete (about a week)
It can take several weeks to receive Michigan’s status checker. Once you do, it will be updated every day because Michigan is awesome.

Acceptances: Status checker followed by email then mailing.
Not Acceptances:
Scholarships: Email, then on Admitted Students website

Duke
Incomplete
Complete (like, a day)
PT:
UR
UR 2: a few days before DLS

Non PT:
In Queue for Review
UR
?

Acceptances: Email, letter arrives later
Not acceptances: Email (some have received it at really weird hours)
Scholarships:
Email about a week or two later to fill out the application. Scholarships should be arriving before April 1st.
Interview Requests
Scholarship Notification:

Northwestern
Incomplete
Interview (Remember to update NU with your interview date!)
Complete
Decision Letter Available within 24 Hours
You stay incomplete at Northwestern until you complete any requested interviews and the interviewer has submitted the assessment. If a lot of time has gone between the two, you might want to call because the status checker isn't always updated (thanks, alex.cm!).

Once you get "decision letter available," (through status checker or email) you can refresh the status checker page as much to your heart's content until the letter shows up. (thanks, objection_your_honor!)

Acceptances: Status checker, email
https://www.law.northwestern.edu/form/A ... _Login.cfm
Not Acceptances:

Cornell :mrgreen:
Incomplete
Complete (a long time)
(Interview request)
(Interview has been scheduled) (status will stay at "interview has been scheduled" until a decision has been rendered — even after you're done with the interview)
Congrats! update

Acceptances: Email, Status checker (sometimes a few hours earlier)
Georgetown :mrgreen:
Incomplete
Complete (a week or so)
Interview Request for Alumni or Group
You can also check the ASW website, like with NYU here. Click on "no password?" and then request one by putting in your email. If they don't have a password for you, then they don't. If they do have one--congrats!
Acceptances: Mail (envelope is small!)
WL/Ding: Email
http://apps.law.georgetown.edu/admitted-students/

Texas :mrgreen:

Not Acceptances: Email and Status Checker
Area Code: 512 (thanks, cannibal ox!)

Vanderbilt :mrgreen:
Incomplete
Complete
(Interview Request)
Decision Mailed
It shouldn’t take too long to go complete

Acceptances: Email then Mail (it’s a large package—you can contact FedEx and see if one weighing more than 5 lbs from Vandy is on your way once your status changes. It should arrive two days later.) Delivery manager on Fedex is usually updated within 24 hours
Not Acceptances: Envelope of Tears sent by USPS

UCLA :mrgreen:
UCLA doesn’t have a status checker. They email you when they receive your application and when you go complete, and call if you are accepted.

Acceptances: Call
Area Code: 310
WUSTL :mrgreen:
Application Documents Received (within a few days) very quickly, remained on this status longest.
Complete (after a few weeks)
Email appears to be the more accurate form of communication, and is used for acceptances, interview requests, and scholarships. Casual phone interviews have been prevalent this cycle and are the usual step between complete and acceptance shortly after (1-2 weeks tops).
Acceptance: Email
Scholarships: Email

USC :mrgreen:
Incomplete
Complete
Committee 1st Read
Committee 2nd Read

Scholarships came a little slower for me. About 3-4 weeks later. I was in one of the first waves though!

+1 on the status checker then email then mail

Update to hopefully reflect that status checker is first, then mail and email will follow. And scholarship depends on admit date so im not going to add a timeline.

UVA now has status updates, and will note acceptances in the call with Dean Faulk, and status checker -> email otherwise.

And Columbia is now email first, then mail.

Feel free to change the wording, but:

Complete --> Under Review
  • No set timeline / discernible pattern from UR to interview/admit/WL/ding. For people with good to great stats, the interview seems to be a YP thing, and if the interview is with Dean Faulk, you may get accepted by the end of the interview.
  • Interview invite is an email directly from the person who will be interviewing you.
  • Dillard comes in the mail with acceptance packet (not sure if this is for everyone; I saw someone say they got a Dillard letter a week after their acceptance packet)

maybe add something about the ND status checker showing seat deposits when you're in and status goes to "Decision Made"?

Can we update these? For Duke Non-PT I've gone from UR1 to UR2 and never went "in que for review". When I went complete it was "Complete; ready for review".
Yes! I will update with your comment later

Arizona State
Received scholarship info in acceptance packet, all by email (through PDFs). I'm also applying from overseas, so this could be a little different...

BU
Acceptance by phone (applicants based in US) followed by snail mail
Acceptance by email w/ a scanned copy of the official letter followed by international mail through FedEx (applicants based overseas)
Scholarship info one week later by email (applicants based overseas)... perhaps also US candidates
