For what I've seen in other addmision processes, some law schools wait the final application deadline to start the first step of the process, in which they only look if the applications are complete. This is the time in which we received the "application complete" email.
Only after that step they start to review the applications.
That is why I think we dhouldn't get too worried or pissed off by the fact that there's been five or six months since we dent our applications.
The other thing I could observe in other threads is that some schools divide the application pool in different lots (don't ask me by which criteria) and maybe this explains the unexplainable randomness of the decisions.
Those are just some things I keep telling myself to try to calm me down. It is not working though....
Thanks for the insight! Those things make sense to me. The lady i spoke with in admissions earlier today told me that the applications are just randomly looked over by the committee, and as the committee makes decisions, the notifications go out. So stressful...
That throws the question as to what happens if the places are full and then they see some really outstanding applicants whom they want from the pool. But anyways, they are the experts. They know what they are doing.
