What to do now..

Hey there,
I got an email stating that I have been accepted to Georgetown IBEL program. They were pretty quick.
I have also applied to Columbia in early review (around 10 October) I guess Columbia, Cornell and Duke have the closest dates to announce the decisions. Can't wait!
Cheers,
P.S: On most schools' track status page it is stated that my application is under review. Do you think, it really means that it's under review or it will stay as under review until february or march :)) And by the way, Did anyone have an email from Harvard regarding that your application is complete or something like that. On my page it is stated that application has been submitted.

Here is my official status in all the universities I applief for, as of this morning, is it the same for you GCB? As you can see, at least for me, not all use the term "under review" some just say complete. I believe its just a formality and doesn't actually mean that it is being reviewd right now. We should wait till Feb./March to learn our faith. Can't help you with Harvard though, decided not to apply at the end.

NYU: Application complete and under review.
Columbia: Your Application is Complete.
Cornell: Your application is complete.
Stanford: Your file is incomplete (still need to send them something really silly, should be fixed by early next week I hope).
UC Berkeley: Application complete.
UPenn: Application Under Review.
Duke: Application is under review.
Georgetown (where I was offered a place): Application Completed (although the mailings and requirements lists have been cleared, which is what usually happens, as I learned from reading previous posts).
Yale: Your file is complete.

Cambridge: Awaiting Consideration by Department.
Oxford: application is complete and will be assessed as part of the 24 January Application Deadline.
LSE: Incomplete File (Still waiting on one referee).

Cheers..

Hey again HopefulCandidate,

My status for schools are as follows:
Harvard: "application has been submitted
NYU: complete and under review
Columbia: Complete
Duke: complete and under review
Upenn: Under review
Berkeley: Complete
Cornell: verifying materials (it's interesting though I have submitted my application through LSAC on october 10th)

and for U michigan, UVA, Vanderbilt they have just sent me an email saying that my application is complete but they didnt provide any password or username for status check. I assume they dont have that system. And from UCLA I have not heard anything yet.

Hey,

Thanks for the update. I would reccomend writing to Cornell. I submitted my application through LSAC on Septmber 24th and had the same problem (verifying materials). On October 12th I wrote them an email asking about status of my application, and if I need to send them additional materials or something? They wrote back October 14th noting that they were in the process of completing applications and that I should hear something from them soon. On October 22nd I got an email informing me that my application was complete.

Hey,

I just had an e-mail from Vanderbilt regarding my admission. I'm glad that they decide that quickly! I wish that other schools do that the same way.
They say that they will decide the scholarships in January and February. I am not hoping to get any scholarships unless it is merit-based though.

However, So far so good :)

Can not wait to hear from Columbia, NYU and among others,

P.S: I wrote to Cornell today regarding this "verifying materials" issue. I hope they write back soon.
Update: HopefulCandidate, Cornell just replied me the same way as they did to you. " currently completing applications and you will be hearing from us soon."

Hi every one
I'm in the painful step of applying to Yale, Colombia, Berkeley and Stanford. God help us all. But the thing is that I have no clue on how to handle sending letters of recommendation through LSAC. So please can u tell me what to do?

You need to register each recommender in LSAC, in the section where it says Letters of Recommendation. Once each recommender has been registered, you need to print each of their Letters of Recommendation Forms and provide each form to each recommender. They need to include said form in the envelope with your letter of recommendation. Once they have the envelope with your letter and the form, they have two options: 1. Send it directly to LSAC (they need to seal the envelope before sending it) or 2. Return the envelope to you so you can send it to LSAC. If they choose this second option, you need to make sure that the envelope is sealed and that the recommenders signature is across the envelopes flap (is a way of guaranteeing that you didnt open the envelope  ). Once you have the envelope, you need to send it to LSAC and wait for them to process the letter. Once processed you should be able to assign the letter to each law school, in the section where it says My Law Schools under the LORs and Recommenders section. Once the letters have been assigned, you dont need to do anything else, when you apply to the law school, they will automatically send the letters assigned to them. Good luck!!
