This again proves that CLS admissions are not strictly rolling as they claim them to be. Somebody who received an appl complete email on 11th Dec and somebody who received it on 8th Jan got admitted around the same time. And somebody in previous years post wrote that their process is not rolling but "randomly rolling", which seems quite right.

Does anyone know if CLS also sends rejection decisions on a rolling basis.? What I am trying to get at is, once a decision is made on your file will they notify you, irrespective of whether you've been accepted, wait listed or rejected?

Anybody has any clue? Thanks.

Congrats!!! Just to be a nosy bastard, I see that on your "profile" you state that you have 0 years of experience. Is that so? I recall that someone here was wondering about how strict the rule of having work experience is.

Anyway, as stated by many the admissions are made in a way that to us seems "random rolling" so I guess rejections are too. #speculations

Good luck everyone! Try not to pee your pants like I do everytime I receive an email notification from this site.

Hi NebNeb,

No, I just haven't completed my profile - I have six years experience in a top tier law firm.

Threads from earlier years discussed how that the committee will group applicants in 3 piles; (1) Shoe in, (2) good but need to assess them compared to other applicants before rendering a final decision; and (3) rejection. I think this is sound logic.

CLS's prerogative is to choose the best candidates they can get their hands on for the class dynamic they want to create. In this sense there seems to be a 'science' to selection and the committees want to make up a class of individuals from different backgrounds and study intentions.

On this thinking, it would make no sense to have a class full of corporate transactional lawyers, as it would neither make sense having a class of arbitration/litigation or human rights/international policy advocates. Its going to be a mix as designed by the school.

I reckon, and i'm purely hypothesising, that the CLS selection committee has quotas of specified subject matter areas to fill. They now need to select the best they can from those subject/experience areas.

What frustrates me with people stressing over "when did your application go complete" is that IMHO it has nothing to do with when your application was submitted or went complete and everything to do with the cohort you're competing with measured against quotas.

Its not first come first serve, but best come best served.

Although this is not based on facts, it makes completely sense.. you are probably right.

Just in case anyone cares: I have been admitted on January 22, 2013 via email.

I had sent in my application via mail (not LSAC) at the end of November, so I suppose CLS received it at some point in December. The application complete email I got on December 10, 2012.

I got my application complete e-mail on December 11th, just a day after you, and no decision yet. I guess it is bad news for me :-(

I am in the same situation (received the application complete email on 10 December and still haven't received any news...). It really makes me nervous and I cannot help thinking that this means bad news or waitlist....

I submitted my application on November 14th and received an application complete email on December 11th. I am getting really worried!! Judging from last year's post, it appears that a bulk of offers and/or rejections come out at the end of February and the beginning of March.

I don't think everyone should be worried. If you received your application complete email, at least you know it's in the system. There could be lots of variables as to why some have not yet received a response.
