Boalt-- second complete email?
« on: December 16, 2007, 08:33:38 AM »
I am sorry if this has already been discussed, but I promise I have a good enough excuse for missing it.  I just got a second complete email from Boalt saying that my application has passed an "initial review" by the admissions committee and that I should expect a decision in February.  I got a complete email from them initially on 11/30.  Did everyone get a second email like this, or should I consider this a deferral, or what?

It's more of a deferral.

It means it hasn't gotten to an admissions committee yet.

You weren't deemed auto-reject or auto-admit material by the "admissions professionals" (often non-lawyer bureaucrats) who are responsible for administering department guidelines in regards to the aforementioned categories.

Now, your application will be photocopied and distributed to one or more readers (usually students and overworked professors), who will rank it against the other applications in their stack.

If one doesn't get that e-mail, should a decision be expected in the near future?

For those of you that got deferred, how much time was there between the "your app is under review" email and the "you app passed initial review" email? Thanks.
