Hmm I don’t remember it saying complete, I feel like I’ve always had it as pending review since I began checking the site out.. sorry!

Who's still pending review? 

I know, I sound like a broken record, but I am going totally crazy here and it helps to know I'm not the only soul left pending. 

me, me, me

Everyone is posting their first letter of their last names but I don’t think it works like that. It is based on rolling admissions so those who submitted first and have an lsat score ready first usually get evaluated first. 

As you can see, all kinds of letters are still pending. So letters are irrelevant right now. 

Anyways, I’m still pending LOL.

Not only when you submitted. Lsat too. Some people submitted on Nov 1st but didn’t have an lsat score on file until December (November’s Test).

I submitted late Oct and wrote the Nov LSAT. And my status was changed from pending on Thursday. It's now Referred - Admissions Committee.

Have been pending review for forever, Submitted at the deadline date, wrote June Lsat but also the January. Also applying to JD/MBA program (so maybe they’re waiting for that application?), 

 

stats aren’t the greatest so I feel like I’m just waiting to get rejected at this point 😕

Hey guys! 

I've been pending review for awhile but when I checked this morning on the uwinsite, there were 3 boxes to choose from which was Admissions, Profile, and just recently added, Financial Aid Tasks. 

Has this happened to anyone else?!!!?

What does this mean?!

An update for those still pending review: I called yesterday and the advisor told me they have around 2000 applications and they've only gone through about half of those. She also told me to check every 2 weeks (I've been psycho checking lol). She also reassured me that the classes will not fill up completely until each application is considered. We're still in the game!

Safe to assume that Pending Review = Your application has not yet been considered?

    • Its mostly hyperbole for the pace of it part, I don't really see myself holding a tin can and a sign that reads "Will review contracts for Food".  There is nothing wrong of course with teaching fundamental skills. Just borrowing a page from say, physics. They teach fundamental theories and its very important to. But its laterally supplanted with learning how to use sophisticated machinery, and now supplanted with learning how to design and program simulation models. We spend like, an hour a week learning to use Westlaw and Quicklaw which are the tools of yesterday. We learn nothing about how these tools are going to operate. But yes, case summaries have not changed. It literally went unchanged for over a decade. Not for criminal law obviously, but the summaries I looked at were virtually identical to mine in teaching ratios and so-on with the same cases used. My point wasn't that it isn't useful; but the way of teaching it has not adapted yet and this is IMO problematic.  Sorry I seem very bitter and so-on, but I am just kind of frustrated with how archaic law school looks to be entering my second year. 
    • Thanks for taking the time to answer my previous question. I may be applying this cycle and have a question with regards to the Sketch part of the application. When I previously applied to Law School I added every little volunteer/extracurricular from the time I entered University. For simplicity purposes, I wanted to retain only the last 3-4 years of relevant experience. Would this be a problem for an individual that had more sketch items in a previous application 1-2 years ago? For example some activities are not included at all whereas they were on a previous application?  And just for the sake of knowing I guess, would you have access to and look back at a previous application if you were assessing a candidate?  
    • No, I think the bias is good because it makes whiny conservatives like you fill your diaper. Your first thought on hearing the Prime Minister did something racist was run to bump an old thread to try and score points for your “team”, because to you the racism isn’t really the issue, it’s just an opportunity to poke a lib in the eye.
    • I don't think that people are necessarily laughing at the essence of what you are saying.  What you are saying isn't completely crazy.  The pace at which you are suggesting this will all happen is likely, in part, what they are doubting.  The reactions may also be partly attributed to the fact that you haven't (I don't think?) actually practiced law at this point. I just don't think the legal profession will be completely revolutionized as imminently as your comments suggest.  While I (and probably others) can appreciate arguments that computers will replace certain functions currently done by humans and that some of Ryerson's tech-forward training could be helpful (if well executed), I think it will take time to get there.  While I do appreciate the need for lawyers to have more technical skills and to better integrate technology into law schools (whatever that means...I'm old), I don't understand how this translates to what seems to be your critique of the substance of law school (i.e. what is taught not the way it is taught).  I do think that law school, especially 1L, should continue to include the case reading, making legal arguments, etc. that you seem to criticize, both because I can't imagine a scenario where humans interacting with AI technology don't need a baseline level of knowledge of the law and because I don't think these changes are going to come all that quickly.  It is also pretty absurd to claim that summaries from 2003 are "the same".  75% the same?  Sure.  But actually the same?  Doubtful.  Even if they were "the same", that doesn't demonstrate that law school curricula are dated or make them irrelevant.  If that is the current state of the law, then that is the current state of the law.
    • Agreed. Also I’m at UBC (where OP also seems to attend) and I’ve had several recruiters at big firms tell me, unprompted, that we have a great CSO that understands exactly what the firms want. Probably since our CSO people have worked at large firms.  Just wanted to add that since I don’t think it’s helpful for OP to go down the path of thinking an incompetent CSO was his or her issue.
