Urm cycle timing

Postby admisionquestion » Tue Jan 31, 2012 8:27 am

I applied fairly early and have not heard a peep from t6 despite law school predictor having me as an accept for all but Yale.

Are Urm cycles at t6 typically much later than non-Urm. I could imagine them tossing the apps aside in a different pile for later...

Oh well that is definitely early. I know URMs that have heard from all T-6 (Columbia not so much bc they just released decisions). Not sure why you wouldn't have heard from Chicago or NYU yet if you have the #'s bc I know they've gotten back to people w/ later submission dates than early Oct and you were UR then....and I know this post didn't do much, but good luck!

You should hear back when everyone else hears back. I didn't get decisions any earlier or later than non-URM students.

My guess would be that something was off in your applications that made you a hold until they see how the class fills out. Horrendous typo? PS about something inappropriate?

Do you mind posting you # and what type of URM you are?

Cuz if you were an autoadmit at all those schools you should have heard back by now.

OP has 3.85/170 from post history, no mention of URM type.

if u are an urm and those are your numbers, then i believe there might be something wrong somewhere...because you should have at least heard from NYU, Chicago and possibly Harvard....how didn't you hear back from Uchicago..didn't they release all decisions for people who applied btw sept and early nov?

Below median (but not insanely below median) URM's -- especially African American males, MA males and Native Americans of either gender -- might hear back later in the season once the adcomms have shored up their medians. DUring my cycle, the Top 7-14 schools often YP or, if they're nice (!), fish around for an LOCI/seek to interview you/both. They're just waiting until their deadlines to see how many other especially desirable URM's apply =)

That's pretty interesting. I guess it'll be long ride for me.....
For some reason I think that for schools in the 30-50 it'll take more time than T14 and 20s because they have more to loose by accepting below median. No?

I already heards from AU W&L (admit) and UMin (reject). I just got a notification that my ND decision is in the mail. But I assume it'll take a good long while before I hear from other schools, sadly :cry:
