I got my acceptance on the 14th. I was top 3% from a T80 about 2 years ago. But they have since cut the size of the transfer class from 40ish admits to 20ish. So I'm not sure how that will affect things. But looks like you might have a shot!

GOOD LUCK!!!

Got an email saying my app was under review and that I could check the status checker, but they never gave me my username or password. Does that come in a later email?

You should have got an email with a user name and password in a separate email. I would contact admissions.

In for the wait. Just sent thru LSAC, waited for spring grades to apply. Hoping I don't get another very expensive no thanks from Berks.

Make sure to send an informal email with your Spring grades as soon as you get them.

I just figured I should wait until they receive my official transcript. You think sending an unofficial transcript as an email attachement will get my app under review sooner?

YES. DO IT unless they have changed the policy and explicitly state not to.

I was in the class of 2012 and transferred there two years ago. I received a phone call a few days after emailing my grades and before they even received my official transcript with Spring grades. I just sent an email saying I got an A in Con Law, A in Torts, A- in Contracts, etc.

Also interested to hear what people think about this.

Looking back at old threads, applicants were finding out by mid June. When does everyone think the decisions will start coming in?

Under review.

No rank released
3.762 - T40's school

Kind of surprised they did not wait for rank but I guess they have enough info.

this is probably a horribly dumb question, but what does TT1, T40, T2 etc mean?

TT and T2 = tier 2 school (or any school between 50-100). T40 is top 40. Not sure what TT1 is. This is all based on the US News rankings.

T1 school; Top 30%.

I know I have no shot. I applied early in the spring semester when my grades were ~20%. I was hoping for a slight tick upwards. Now I'm just waiting for the rejection letter.
