So, law schools are waiting for Dec scores

Postby linkx13 » Tue Dec 24, 2013 1:19 pm

I ask this because it seems that decisions are coming out slower than in previous years. I'm assuming, with the massive drops in scores and applications, that the schools are simply holding apps until they see the December scores. Is that common knowledge now or is it off?

That is very possible.. But I also think this year's Thanksgiving schedule kind of put everyone out of the rhythm as well.

That's an interesting point. I take it that at this time last year, a lot of people had heard already? Why would they want to wait for December scores? Is it reasonable to hold that there has been a substantial drop in the medians of applicants, and they're hoping these will go up for those applying with December scores?

Don't take things too far. Plenty of people have heard back, and schools always make decisions on Dec scores...

It always seems slower when it's you that's doing the waiting ;)

Of all the schools I've applied to, only one has explicitly stated they are waiting on my December score.
