USC is being really slow this cycle because of trying to cut class numbers.

Oh and UC Davis. I think they forgot that they are supposed to start accepting people.

LSN has a small handful of people that got accepted, but I concur that they've been frustrating this cycle.  Such is life I suppose.

Case Western has had my app for almost four months now without a word from them...I figured I'd be in right away since I'm above their 75ths.

I'll say Pittsburgh.  They send no record that your app is complete and have no status check.  However, their admissions office has been friendly and responsive.

The OP is right to call Texas on it's slow-playing, but at least they have a status checker (even if it never changes).  Yeee-haw!

I sent an email asking if they would send notification when my application was complete. I received a response saying a decision had been mailed and should arrive shortly. At least they are responsive so you may want to shoot an email asking about your complete status.

I want to also "second" (well, more like "six" at this point) Fordham. They got our hopes up with a page that said they were updating the status checker. Once it was updated, there was no update. They're playing mind games. Tricky tricky tricky...

I know it's a reach school, but Berkeley frustrated me.  It took 3 months to reject me, when a close look at LSN shows that most people that applied at my time were rejected or deferred months ago.  I felt as though I was in limbo.

W&M is a close second.  I was expecting to get a fairly quick turn-around time from them, but that's law school admissions for ya.

American and UNC! UNC hasn't made any decisions yet!! And American takes months to accept anyone!

Yeah, if UNC were one of my top choices it would be in the running for this dubious distinction; what could they possibly hope to accomplish with their admissions process by sending out - according to LSN anyway - almost NO decisions thus far?

UVa, Cornell (especially) and UT. Not that it is necessarily a bad thing. I feel like I should have been an auto-ding at all of them.
