So how long does it take to receive decisions if you apply mostly in the first few weeks of November? I'm trying to go complete everywhere by Thanksgiving.

*- I put this next to Harvard because one person is reporting an acceptance on 10/21/07, not 11/21/07, however I believe this to be incorrect because a.) there were A LOT of people reporting acceptances on 11/21/07, but none were reporting any acceptances earlier than that except this one, and b.) the 10/21/07 acceptance has a "complete" date for Harvard as being 10/31/07, which leads me to believe it was just an oversight and he/she meant to put 11/21/07.

Interesting Notes
-Stanford seems to accept people a lot later in the cycle than most other schools.  Also, their acceptances are all over the place.
-Columbia only accepts a few in late November/December, the majority of their acceptances start at the end of January onwards. 
-NYU accepts most (I would say upwards of atleast 85%) of their applicants in December and January.  Not as many rejections, it seems, from NYU as compared to the schools around it.
-Chicago sends most of its acceptances in January/February.
-USC rejections are sent out significantly later than everyone else's.
-All of WUSL rejections came in the month of April.
-Most acceptances to W&L seemed to be during December/January.
-All but one rejection to W&L was in April, the one not in April was on 05/09/08.
-Most rejections to GWU came in February and April.
-Seems like Boston just lets the applications sit there until the spring semester.
GPA: 2.1, LSAT: 174
