..Realistically, when will I hear back from ALL schools?

Postby tillie512 » Sun Feb 13, 2011 11:54 am

I am just curious about previous cycles, and (if I am not waitlisted anywhere), when would be the last date that most applicants hear back from schools? I know most schools do things at their own discretion, but when's a conservative estimate...End of April? Mid-May?

Thanks.

Probably mid-April if not before.

depends on when you submitted your application. if you sent it in before 12/31 you should hear by end of feb. if you submitted closer to 2/1 then you will probably be waiting until end of march, early april. IT all depends on where you applied, and how your numbers stand in regards to their medians and the number of seats available still.

Thanks, guys. I personally sent in my apps just before end of 2010...and, last app first week of January. (had to wait for Dec LSAT score to be sure). I have heard from 25% of the schools I have applied to; and, was just wondering about the long-haul for the final decision. Thanks for responding! :))

If you want more specific info just use law school numbers to look up the decision dates at the schools you applied to for people who applied around the same time in previous admissions cycles.

I was thinking the same exact thing.
