I tried to submit a comment with the emoji on my phone keyboard but it wouldn't let me :cry:

Nothing in my USPS tracker this morning so today is going to be a long day.

You are telling me. Do they also email decisions? or is it just mail?

Traditionally acceptance is by mail and rejection is by email. Deferrals I think could come either way any given year.

In the past, the standard has been acceptances by mail in a normalish looking envelope and deferrals by email.

Also: nothing in my mail today either.

On the bright side, last final of 1L year tomorrow for me guys, wish me luck!

I dunno man. I'm kind of skeptical, but maybe I'm wrong? I think we're definitely in the territory where it could literally be any day now. Normally acceptances get received at weeks-end, so it's kinda today/tomorrow or this time next week, right? Then again, this admissions cycle has been very atypical so watch us all get dinged on Sunday at 3am.

Also, just out of curiosity: has anyone else here become radically pessimistic about their chances? I know on a rational level that I'm totally in the ballpark, but for some reason it's started to feel impossible. It's very strange and I don't really know what to make of it.

Same. Nothing in my usps tracker this morning. Hang in there though guys. If we ding we still have some great grades to kick off our law school career. Good luck on your last final @MSUN5. Mine dont even start until next week.

I'm wondering that, if last year they took a larger incoming class, that means that this year they will take less transfers?

Been following the thread. T3 at least top 5%. To your comments above, I wouldn't say it's been atypical from the last two years, they just closed off the informal (and unintentional) indicators.

Based on their usual course, doesn't seem likely that they'll email acceptances, though they still could. For the first wave, I'm guessing letters are going out today, and those accepted will receive letters tomorrow/next week depending on where they're located. If the first wave of applicants aren't notified next week, then I'd say things are certainly different this year. Regardless, good luck and don't second guess yourself because of the wait. Just a wait. The real issue is going to be filling that attention void we've all created for ourselves :D

You can sign up for informed delivery and get snapshots of what's coming in the mail right here: https://informeddelivery.usps.com/

This way you know a full 3 hours in advance whether you've got something interesting in the mail. Haha.

Also, nothing on my end today either.

Thanks for the best wishes, @toddy! You're only a week behind me, the end is in sight!

In the past, what day of the week were decisions released on?

Last year the letters were dated Friday April 27 and received over the weekend.

2017: Backdoor Thursday; letters Friday through the weekend.

2016: Backdoor Wednesday; letters/emails Friday

2015: Backdoor Wednesday; letters Wednesday - Friday

2014: Backdoor Tuesday; letters Friday

Well, well, well. Common Denominator: Friday. This is the most consistent pattern yet.

Is a full time indicator a good sign?

Mine also says full time but I think that's been there for a while. Did your "Program Time" just populate on the status checker?

I find it weird that they send acceptances through US Mail. It would be nice if they did a combination of mail and email. I live at my permanent address but I think it's gotta be hard to reach students during the summer when they're not necessarily at their regular address.

Just received an email- deferred.

"Although the record you present is a strong one, the Committee on Transfer Admissions has chosen to defer your final decision until we have a better sense of the entire applicant pool."

Ouch. Guess it's better than a rejection.

Also deferred. I’ve followed this thread for about a week. It’s been super helpful to not be the only suffering soul.

Do the deferment emails typically trickle in or do they all get send out in one go?
