I'm Brazilian and got my law degree from USP with a high GPA (probably top 5%, although there's no official rank - "Above average" by LSAC). Graduate Specialization at FGV (top 5%, as well). Pursuing a Master Degree at USP (graded "Superior" by LSAC). Teaching Assistant at USP. Some publications and honors. Work in a top law firm for 7 years (3 of them as an intern). Letters of recommendation from a partner of the firm and my academic supervisor (Chair of the civil law department of USP). Participation on several professional associations. Guess that's all...

Sure! Im also Brazilian, 25, graduated from a top law school with honors (but no offical rank), - I was ranked above average by LSAC -, was a researcher and teaching assistant during school (in Public Law) and then 4 years at a top law firm (2 as intern) + still teaching assistant (now Capital Market). Recommendation from one of the firm senior partners and from a renowned Professor. A couple of articles published, 4 languages and lots of extracurricular activity (seminars, student groups, summer courses, etc).

Yes, December 23 is getting late, though they told me when my application was complete that I'd hear by the end of December.

Which message?

I believe there is no relationship between the completion email and the decision btw.

No, I mean they're analysing it as the completion email gets sent.
