Anyone else unable to access their application status all of a sudden?

I literally have an ad for USPS when I view this page. Probably because I'm always checking this at the same time I check my informed delivery.

Hahaha. Another day, come and gone. Maybe tomorrow? At this point I don't expect anything until the end of next week but who knows? Thankfully finals have arrived and my mind is filled with enough stuff to distract me from GULC.

Future applicants are going to read old threads, this thread, and be so confused about what to believe anymore.

At least they wont have to sift through dozens of pages. We're a quiet group. I guess because there's nothing really left to say until we hear from GULC.

Just thought I'd toss myself in the ring - also applied EA and have been getting the same little updates as y'all.

high T2 | 3.725 | my school doesn't rank before end of 1L but I'm going to guess, top 10%
2 Recs, both from my 1L professors
Summer: State Gov AG Office (I've always slanted public sector)

Good luck to everyone! I'm going to guess we'll get notifications on April 30 (the last possible day)...

Maybe. Still a shot we might get something this upcoming week! It'd be very cool for me if we did because Friday, 4/26 is my last final and I'd very much like to jet back home immediately afterwards without being worried about missing something in the mail.

I wish. Their website says "late April or early May" and I wouldn't be surprised at all if we heard first week of May. But it definitely would be nice to hear sometime this week.

tls_toddy wrote:Here are timelines from the previous years starting from address status checker changes to acceptance letter. Some of these threads are hard to navigate (looking at 2016) so feel free to update/correct. Anyone else worried we noticed changes in the status checkers on April Fools?

2018: 11 calendar days, 7 business days
4/19 was apt.->apartment change
4/27, user called and reported that "they specifically have not made any decisions yet"
4/30 USPS trackers indicate GULC mail (some with 4/27 mailing date), backdoor access
5/03 Deferrals

2017: 8-10 calendar days, 6-7 business days
4/20 first apt-apartment
4/24 part-time/full-time indicators, most other address changes
4/27 backdoor access
4/28-30 letters received
05/02 late acceptances/backdoor access
05/03-04 later letters; acceptances through the summer for some who I guess got deferred

2016: 7 calendar days, 5 business days
4/15 apt->apartment
4/19 part-time/full-time indicators
4/20 backdoor access
4/22 acceptance e-mails with letters in mail
4/28 deferral emails

2015: 6-8 calendar days, 4-6 business days
4/02 apt->apartment
4/08 backdoor access
4/08-10 letters
4/13-15 deferral emails

2014: 9 calendar days, 7 business days - copied these stats from the 2015 thread
4/02 apt->apartment
4/08-11 backdoor access
4/11 letters



Because the waiting is killing me, here are some more data points to add to this:

2018:
First Deposit Due: May 7 (Monday, First full week of May)
Time between backdoor access and deposit: 7 days/4 business days

2017:
First Deposit Due: May 10 (Wednesday, First full week of May)
Time between backdoor access and deposit: 13 days/8 business days

2016:
First Deposit Due: May 2 (Monday, First full week of May)
Time between backdoor access and deposit: 12 days/8 business days

2015:
No Deposit date data

2014:
First Deposit Due: May 1 (Thursday, not a full week in May)
Time between backdoor access and deposit: 20-23 days/15-18 business days

So I think we can make two conclusions:

1) There is a huge margin of error.
2) Assuming they want the first deposit by the end of the first full week in May, I would guess that we'll have backdoor access on or before Monday (April 29) so that we have 8 business days to gather a deposit.

You know, we might not be the most talkative of all the threads, but goddammit I'll put our data collection skills up against any one of them. This is magnificent. Maybe the tricky way to find out what the decision date would be is to call the admissions office and throw a curve-ball: instead of asking when they expect to make decisions, ask when the first deposit will be due.

Stupid question, but what is this backdoor access everyone keeps talking about?

Agreed we have a terrific group. I hope we all get in guys :) My only comment is I remember someone mentioning that the backdoor glitch got fixed (and after some snooping around what I think is the admitted students website, I think that's true) so it's more likely we will find out via the official correspondence.

Any volunteers for callers though? I may have a chance later this afternoon but it depends on how busy we get.

In years past you used to be able to find out if you got in a few days prior to actually getting an acceptance letter by requesting a "forgotten password" from GULC's system. This quirk existed for years and years until (I guess) someone finally fixed it last year.

I got an email requesting information about my summer plans, since I hadn't included them on my resume.

Maybe they're looking for a tiebreaker? Might also mean they're still at least a couple days out from finalizing anything.

Hi all!

I've been following along for updates and thought I would jump in (obviously in the same boat re: getting anxious about hearing back). I called the admissions office today. Was told that they are finalizing now and we should hear back in 2- 3 weeks max. Really hoping this is a conservative estimate because I know many of us will have to participate in two journal-writing competitions if this goes past early May. Good luck to everyone and hang in there!

Hi All,

Figured I should jump into this as well. Top 3% at a T1, no extracurriculars to speak of, so hopefully my grades carry me through! I will say that if they do take 3 more weeks to get back to us, I will probably stay where I am since I'll have to do write-on by that point, but I think it will be sooner.

I think you'll be fine. Did you apply EA anywhere else? They may get back to you sooner.

Also @nonnie16 thank you for calling!!! Man I really hope it's not that long but based off of what @RentAIC said, I guess they are still unsure/finalizing decisions...my guess is it's not necessarily for Accept v. Deny but rather Accept EA v. Defer to RD.

Yeah I think you're right -- certain employment might push one candidate or another over the finish line. Which seems a bit odd, since we haven't actually done anything yet, but with everything else being equal I guess you have to consider something.

Wonder what types of employment they value.

I would guess some sort of SA/law firm/attorneys' office position? Or maybe just want to make sure you're doing something productive. I'm rooting for you!

Hmmmm. Well I don't see the fire-alarm emoji anywhere on this dashboard so I'm sort of at a loss as to how best to respond to this.

Welp! I too am looking for the fire alarm emoji, but for now, just going to keep studying Crim Law and praying for the letter.
