How long once file is under review?

Postby Neidermeyer519 » Tue Jan 11, 2011 8:24 pm

I just submitted applications Sunday and they have all been marked as complete and under review. I'm just curious how long it typically takes before a decision is made. I'm sure the info is somewhere on here, but I didn't see it on my first look. Sorry if I'm asking something that has probably been droned on about already. Just getting really antsy right now.

Most schools say something like 1-2 months.

The real answer is it depends when you submit, which school it is, and your numbers.

For the schools I submitted to I am in the 75% percentile or higher for gpa and LSAT. I was roughly expecting I should hear back by the end of January at the latest. Thanks though, that will keep me from wanting to check every day. lol

If you're above both medians, I'd expect quick turn around. January is probably a stretch but I'd think more like February/March.

One can hope. lol. Thanks again though. How long after the decision is made does it take to receive scholarship info? Also, I've heard people talk about negotiating scholarships. Is there a particular method to go about this?

Status checkers should have a live video feed of the decision/review room. That would be badass.

lol that would be funny. I'd love to see what people assumed or inferred from application packets and how accurate it was.
