         Which school has befuddled you the most with their slow response time? This could be somewhere you would have expected a rejection from by now, or a place you think you should have gotten in easy at this point in the cycle. Reaches probably don't count since it seems that reach schools - at least in my case - don't let us hear anything till close to the end of the cycle... For example, I applied to Michigan, Cornell and Texas - My top 3 schools - in OCTOBER, had my early action app held at Cornell and UT and have heard nothing from any of those schools since, but since my LSAT is just below the median at UT and my GPA is just above it and I am in state, I really would have expected to hear from them by now, but judging by LSN they are still only accepting people who are pretty well above their medians... Numbers gaming? Backlog of Apps? Low number of applicants? I've gotten in to BC, BU, U Minn, all of which are comparably ranked to UT, with BU having very similar class stats, and yet from my beloved Longhorns I have heard menos que nada, and thus they have earned the right to be called the most frustratingly slow school I have applied to. I grow increasingly anxious on a daily basis. Thoughts on UT or slow response times in general?

Georgia, no doubt. Especially when compared to Alabama and Emory. Even compared to Georgia State and Mercer.

American, Pitt, and Indy-Bloomington...I thought I'd be a pretty quick admit at Pitt.  Seriously though, these 2 top-tier schools should either reject me right away or at least give me an idea if I'm gonna be waitlisted!

Georgia State..went complete on 12/31..nothing!  I have heard that they review apps in batches.  It is frustrating to look at LSN and see poeple who have cone complete a month or so after me hearing back..I am slowly losing hope.

2 weeks and you are losing hope?  This is one of the busiest parts of the season for schools.  Everything is going to take a little bit longer.

seconded.  It was weird that they seemed so disorganized.  Every time I called they seemed like they were mad at me for "bothering" them.  I don't really know about them.
