I'm seriously so bored and I have so much nervous energy I might enroll in an online MBA.  You know one of those you can finish in 6 month or less :)

Yeah, I'm tempted to apply to some school for a Masters...

I'm not ready to face the real world! Let's hope I don't become one of these people with like 5 degrees but no actual work experience.

And by "real world" you mean law school?

I emailed them and they sent me an email back letting me know I was complete.

I think you should email them and ask/remind them (nicely) to request your report. 2 months is ridiculous. If you don't get a positive reply in a week or so, I would call the Asst. Dean of Admissions.

Just what I would do...

Thanks for the reply.  Guess that seems like a reasonable course of action.  Hope I don't step on any toes.  But seriously the amount of time is ridiculous.

Man, i totally thought i heard.  But it was just their international studies brochure...and the wait continues!

I really hope you get in ND lmh, I don't think there's been more enthusiasm exhibited by one person for one school yet.  Will be waiting for you to exclaim I GOT IN! 

Law School Admissions / Ohhh... UCLA

UCLA is really frustrating me.  I sent my application in via snail mail so it was a hard copy application.  I realize electronically would have been a bit better but nevertheless it should have gotten there fine.  I call in they say they've received it.  Ok great.  That was 2 months ago.  All along these past two months I keep checking lsac and they still haven't requested my LSDAS report.  I check again a couple weeks later and send 2 emails regarding the LSDAS report and how it still shows them as not having requested it.

Now as acceptances are starting to roll in for UCLA I can't help but wonder if something has gone wrong.  But everytime I call them the person assures me (albeit hastily) that everything is fine.  Do I have to go up the chain of command to get some solid answers?  Has this happened to anyone else?

I just got off the phone with Notre Dame.  They typically do send a few acceptances before Christmas but the nice young lady I talked to on the phone said they have a new committee this year so there is really no precedent as to what they'll do now.  Also they're currently reviewing ED applicants but for those regular applicants that applied relatively early, they may have a decision on their file before Christmas.  Finally the bulk of the decisions, so says the nice lady on the phone, will be going out the first or second week of January.

Didn't see it out there so thought I'd get this one started.

I am applying there as one of my safeties.. obviously a huge safety, but do you guys think that it will place well in Chicago or surrounding areas?

Better than Cooley, but that's not saying much.  Look you're up against all the Chicago law schools, plus the Indiana schools like Notre Dame and IU who are all competing for the same market.  Practically everyone in the Midwest wants Chicago.  So I think anyone that tells you it will be easy to find a job there is somewhat misinformed. 

Do schools expedite applicants they really like? It seems like some of the turnaround times between complete and decision on LSN are pretty quick. If so, what happens to the rest of us midde-a-the-road folks?

I think that's a safe assumption.  But don't worry too much guys.  It's really early.  The vast majority of schools don't begin to admit applicants until the middle of December.  FWIW I just checked Emory's admits from last year and they didn't start accepting most of their people until the middle of January and into February!
