How hopeful are we for ED holds this next Jan wave? I believe rejections start flowing in at the beginning of February, so is it save to assume that if you're not in the next wave (as an ED hold), that you're getting dinged/ WL?

My understanding based on the hold letter is that all ED holds will receive a decision of admit, WL, or deny by the end of January

That's what I thought too until I looked back on MyLSN to see the exact dates waves went out in the past. I noticed that for many of the previous years, rejection/ WL waves went out in Feb (some of those included were ED holds). Perhaps they'll stiffen up the deadline this cycle.

He prefaces the entire letter by saying “we expect to”. There’s a little wiggle room in there for a delay; the nuance in the letter would make any adcomm proud. Here’s to twiddling our fingers well into February. Dilly dilly!

I'm telling myself that they clicked No by accident.

Wait, it's up to eight No. Are folks just trolling us?

Anyone know if there's precedent for multiple waves in one week? Esp. with ED holds?

If you see the poll above, Johann is clearly listening to the eight goofballs who don't want him to give the people what they want.

How long did it take to receive material in mail after admission? I was admitted 1/16. Just curious for the swag.

Also, sorry this is my first post. 25<GPA<Median LSAT=75

I was accepted the same day, that survey email they sent out right afterwards said it would be mailed within a week to 10 days

Sure thing! I'm curious to see what's in mine as well, only swag I've gotten so far is a WashU t-shirt.

FTFY:

No, I enjoy having my TLS posts mined for data by a shitty legal recruiting firm.
