In via e-mail as well - wasn't expecting a wave until Thursday. Online status change also shows "decision rendered", but I don't know if it changed before or after the e-mail.
Submitted 11/11, Complete 11/13, UR 12/15.

My status checker is blank in the decisions areas. It used to have a decision status and date, but both of those are gone now. I'm assuming that means something, idk. Anyone else like that?

Dinged. So it does mean something, if anyone else was wondering

Just got another email from them (after applying 12/1) saying it's "under review." Does that mean I should expect a decision soon?

I'm still sitting as 'complete' and not in review, with competitive numbers, for over a month. Should I contact admissions to see if something is awry?

Nope, don't be that person. They'll get to you eventually.

If it helps, I waited at complete for about month and a half and then got in like two weeks or so after going under review, so would guess that its not indicative of anything positive or negative if you're waiting to go under review. I think they just probably have a lot of applications to go through

Thanks! Good to know. Patience is a virtue in short supply when your future is floating in the ether.

PSA

For those talking about scholarships, my acceptance email very clearly said, "All admitted candidates will be considered for scholarships. Scholarship award notifications will be released starting in mid-February on a rolling basis. Scholarship awards are final and non-negotiable."

Another wave that I am NOT a part of - it's nearing a month sitting at completion. Of the schools I have a likely shot at, I think BC is my #1 choice so knowing my fate there with some $$ numbers would be nice.

I’m considering trying to get a clerkship, depending on how my grades are and I’m concerned about BC’s stats. 3 years ago they sent 14 people to a federal clerkship, not bad. The next year 8, and last year only 3.

What is up with this trend? BC is a school I’m heavily considering dependent upon scholarship but this negative trend in clerkships has me worried.

BC is one school that I just have no idea what kind of outcome to expect. Many people with worse numbers than me have got in with money, and many people with better numbers than me have gotten dinged or Waitlisted. Most schools I have a pretty good idea of what to expect but Its a total shot in the dark for BC. Fingers crossed tho cause Id love to end up there.
