Thanks for all the responses.
I got an email later about the early interview program for Employers. It referenced the admitted students site. All things point towards admission, but as a personal policy, I won't be truly convinced until the letter is in my hand. A lot of important decisions to make in the next coming weeks. Good luck everyone, and congratulations.

I applied to GULC EA and got deferred. My school was late with grades, so they sent me an email around the 15th telling me to send out my grades. I did just as well this semester (3.7 overall, school it 60-70's).
The status checker just changed to decision, and I am able to access the admitted students website at this time. I am taking that as a sign I got in, but I want to get everyone's perspective, do you think I got in. Status checker changed to decision on the 26th of June. I have not gotten any other emails however.
If these questions seem silly, the reason I want other people's input is because I am halfway around the world overseas until August 2nd. Please give me feedback, I appreciate it a lot, good luck to all.

No mail again today...every day to the mailbox is torture. Still complete.
Deferral Letter Today. 3.8 GPA, school in the 50's. Status online still says complete.
Good luck to all.

I've had my macbook for little over a year. I bought my first mac in 2002. I hate to go back to a windows format, but my school recommends it and I decided that I'd rather just buy a new laptop than fight with mine to get it to work with all their programs and such. That said, I have no clue what to buy. I've never bought a windows based computer. Here is the list of requirements from my school site:
We suggest the following minimum portable system specifications for UB Law students.
* Processor (Intel or AMD) 1.66GHz and higher
* Hard drive: 40 GB and larger
* Memory: 512MB of RAM (1GB recommended)
* Video Memory: 128MB (256 MB recommended)
* CD-ROM, DVD, CD-RW, or DVD-R as desired
* Operating system: Windows XP Pro (suggested), Windows XP Home or Media, Windows Vista.
* Modem: 56 kbps to dial-up UB if needed
* Sound Cards, speakers, mouse, etc.
* Ethernet (or Fast Ethernet) - 10/100Base-T Network Interface Card
* Wireless card for 802.11x standards.
Thank you for any suggestions you have!
This is funny.
I am a mac user myself and was in the same situation coming into lawschool. The lawschool i attended said they "recommended" a windows based machine.
First thing is talk to students, students at my school said it was no problem. Also, most schools have a deal with a computer supplier (that's a pc) to sell pc's to students, that is the main reason why they recommend a PC. I kept my mac and am so happy I did. I have had zero issues, and i've seen my friends pc's crash during class quite a few times.
In law school, stick to your guns, make sure you don't let the administration push you around. If you want a mac, get one.
Also, new macs allow you to put windows on them, so if your that worried about it you can have the best of both worlds.

So I also applied PT and FT and am still Complete. Also it was updated twice this evening 1st at 5:36 and then at 5:48 Anyone apply PT and at "decision."
Same...what are you stats transfer kill?

Well it's good that none of us went to DECISION today. Otherwise, I'd believe that I'm really a Reject. Now, there is hope for all of us Part-Timers that decisions for part-time haven't been made...optimism!!!
You know what, good luck to all. This process is becoming nerve racking a little bit. I hope it's worth it in the end.

boo still complete here

For those who applied PT, did your status get updated today? Also, for those who didn't get DECISION yesterday, did you change to DECISION today? Based on older posts, it looked like GULC changes status of deferrals to DECISION the day after acceptance, but my status was updated today and still COMPLETE. I'm wondering whether I'm just a reject or maybe the fate of those who applied to PT only haven't actually been decided yet. I'm curious because I don't think I'd get rejected with T25/~10%...or maybe I'm completely wrong!
I applied FT and PT (checked both on the app). I'm in the same boat as you, updated at 5Pm on the 20th, still complete. I doubt you or I are a direct reject, I think everyone is over analyzing this. We will all find out soon enough.

You guys may want to check after midnight. I remember on the threads last year the update occurred at its usual time - around 5PM - but then their status switched to decision sometime after midnight. Strange, I know, but that's what I recall.
I remember reading about the midnight change too.
Everyone report back at 12:01 a.m.!!!
Dongo, with your stats your going to be a lock to get in (no sarcasm).
To everyone on this board stop driving yourself crazy, you'll find out when you find out, get off the computer and go outside and do something, nothing your doing right now is helping you find out any quicker.
