Good luck! We have a similar GPA lol.

That's cool lol. I wasn't going to apply to a lot of top 14s but then I got a bunch of emails from them and some even students that went there. Then I found out about how AA cycles are unpredictable. So I said might as well lol.

Read the question wrong lol.

How long did it take for you guys to receive your first decision? Also do most of them come in the mail?

I'm still waiting on my first decision, but I applied in mid-November. I hope to start receiving some decisions next week or else I will probably have to wait until January after the winter break.

I waited exactly ten days from completion for Duke, but for everyone else I am still waiting. I submitted 11/23, with a LOR coming on 12/1 for most schools, and then 12/5 for another small batch. I don't expect to hear from anyone until after New Years anymore.

...

Not that that stops me from refreshing my status checkers every day anyway...

Also Duke's came as an email. From what I have been seeing, email is most common, then phone call, then mail.

I feel like I'm in a similar boat, my GPA is a lil lower (3.07) and my LSAT is a bit higher (163). Figured I'd say what the hell and apply everywhere from lower-T14 to top 25 and hope for the best

Just got a call from Chapman here in Orange County California. They accepted me and gave me a full ride. So that's my first acceptance.

Heard back from UCLA 9 days after going complete. Received the initial decision by phone from Dean Schwartz, then received an email, and [supposedly] will receive a formal admissions letter in the mail soon!
