My status is still under review, what about you? Has there been any change on the portal?


None in mine. Even wrote a mail few days ago wherein I received a response that all applications will be decided by April 30 and that mine is being considered. Don't know what to make of it.



Could you please share the email address? I will also send them an email.

I'm starting to think that they have at least a few places to fill in. Otherwise our rejections should have been with us by now. Am I just being unnecessarily hopeful?

Is it a usual practice that before confirmation the application goes to GAO/PAO? If that's the case and since many of us are in review, maybe we don't really stand a chance.

While it is true that the application moves to the GAO/PAO first, the Law department may approve it and send it for consideration to the admissions office anytime before 30th of April. Even for LLM, a lot of appli ants had received their offers late in March even though the law department had taken its decision by 1st March, as per the deadline.

So I am hopeful that we will see some update on the application portal by 30th and I am sure atleast a few of us will receive conditional offers.

Thank you! This is helpful. We can only wait and hope now.

Just saw mine change too. Sharing the same exact emotion. I have been going insane the last few weeks!

Now, does anyone know of any applicants who've been rejected after moving to GAO / PAO? I can't deal with any more surprises / shocks.

Congrats! 

Is there anyone who is still under review? Since there are as many as three people who are awaiting approval by PAO, this got me thinking that perhaps there is a glitch in the system and it’s a mistake?

It's done manually, so it's not a glitch. They simply finally moved a number of candidates from the reserve list to give them offers now that they have assessed how many more offers they can give based on the current amount of initial offer holders having declined their offers. .

While obviously there is this possibility, I highly doubt any applicant can get this far in the application process without satisfying the minimum requirements for admission, particularly with a program as competitive as this one. At least I hope so!
