Due to to the fact that I'm going crazy waiting, I decided to find out if I could make a time line of expected decision and completion dates from schools by looking at LSN. I was surprised to find that most schools had certain a date on which they informed the majority of their applicants of their decisions.
And just in case anyone is in a similar boat to me, I'm going to go ahead and list my research. But first, the methodology.
I based these "findings" solely off the self reported dates on LSN and looked only at application dates similar to mine (read: 9/15 for Stan Harv Col NYU Chicago Mich berk, and 9/25 for UT GT Corn, duke, nu, uva, penn.
I did not take into consideration other factors, such as ED.
Further, I based these findings on lower 170 lsat scores so this list might not be representative to all admission index scores.
Here's the list: Decision= the date these applicants were told that they were accepted. Complete = date their apps went complete.
Complete Col 20 NYU 20 Mich 20 Penn 20 (i.e. 10/20)
Decision Texas 01 George 15 Mich 20
complete NU 15 Cornell 10 Berk 15 GT 12 UT 01 Virg 01 Stan 08 Harv 15
Decision Duke 01 Cornell 15 Virg 15 Penn 20 NYU 01 (Berk and Harv admit qualified apps at this time)
Decision Col 31 Nu 06 Chicago 20 (Stanford lets in qualified during this time)
Note: Berkley, Stanford, and Harvard let applicants in on the months listed but their process continued for many months and was very irregular in that it was not as confined to a particular date as the other schools. Also, my U.T. dates are sketchy due to the lack of people with the numbers I was looking at who reported their time tables to LSN.
Hope this list helps with the waiting game.
