So after I've submitted all my apps, how do I know results?

Postby lsatextreme » Wed Jan 12, 2011 3:32 am

I know I got app status checkers for most schools, but do I basically have to check as often as I can to see if they'll post the results online? And are all school results posted online, or how does that work?

TIA

A lot of schools email you when something changes. Check each school's thread to see those that don't.

I don't check my status checkers until the thread on TLS notes there's activity.

Status checkers are primarily meant to prevent prospective students from calling/emailing/otherwise annoying the admissions offices with questions about their application status. Their usefulness is questionable at most schools.

I've been accepted to about half of the schools I've applied to this cycle, so far. I found out by phone call (1), email (6), snail mail (1). Several schools didn't even change the status checker before I found out.

Most common way is probably by email, but you may also get a phone call or see it on your status checker first. The checkers usually just say something like "Decision Rendered" and then you have to wait for an email or an acceptance/rejection in the mail to find out what the decision was.
