Each NLU associated with the consortium will release its individual shortlist for counseling within some time. In that list, they shall publish the names of the candidates and their roll numbers for CLAT. These candidates must report to the concerned NLU in person and complete the admission process. 

As of now, you have to check the merit list and decide on whether you want an update for the seats or not. If you are satisfied with the NLU you have been allotted, you need to wait till the concerned NLU publishes a notice.

As you visit the merit list section for the NLUs individually, you will get the pdf of the merit list (UG and PG) on their website. The NLUSs have also mentioned opening and closing ranks for short-listed candidates. You will have to confirm whether you have been allotted the seats properly or not.

For example, if an NLU has published that the closing CLAT rank for its admission is 25003, that means if you have a higher position than that and have prioritized this NLU in your choice list, you must have been allotted a seat in this University. If not, you can report or apply for an update. 

This information regarding opening and closing rank is more of cut-off detail to maintain transparency for the students regarding seat allotment. The seat allotment is strictly marked based on the preferences for NLUs marked by the candidates while filling out the forms.
