Im thinking the same...but maybe the process is different for RD? I mean the website says that they only do by postal...who knows...

what are your stats if you dont mind?

Top 30% at a low T2 in Norcal. I know USC is a longshot but its my hometown so i applied hoping for the best. I already got my U of San Diego acceptance, so no matter what im moving back to Socal...just hoping a higher ranked school in LA comes thru though. Whats your stats.

When did all of your decisions go from 1st committee read to decision rendered?

Just got an email yesterday from USC adcom telling me that my transcript has arrived with a grade missing last week. sent them my transcript last month... takes 4 weeks for a letter to get to cali from nj. ridic.

fml. rutgers-camden is plotting against me. sending incomplete transcripts to BU, AU, and USC. BU was nice enough to admit me with an unofficial transcript with a condition that i sent them an official transcript. USC was adamant on not going forward without official transcript.

i hope camden goes further in ranking so i can rejoice my transferring out even more.

RU-Camden doesn't rank. but I am between 15-20% range. it is a long shot, but i pride myself in being diverse - which i think is a 'thing' now - and willing to unabashedly exploit my seemingly diverse background.

although being an asian - which i m - is not that diverse in cali, especially in los angeles, also seems to help in getting into law schools. which i think is kinda racist and very strongly influenced by stereotypes, i am willing to sell my soul for a good oci!

but yes. USC is still a long shot, but gotta try or die tryin.

Dont count on asian being any added incentive. Only black and Hispanic and native american really add anything to the diversity card.... Asian is the same as white in law school

I am still in 1st read. T2 SoCal top 15% and I am an EA defer.


Not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing... Any thoughts? The people that got admitted heard late at night and early in the morning.

I am 7% at T4 in Florida- My status went to decision rendered yesterday as well... Additionally, I recently got accepted to Pepperdine, denied from USD so I will be in SoCal either way as well it looks like. Good luck all!!!

BU seems to be accepting a lot of transfers this year... is this normal.

In final review....who knows what this means good or bad. I talked to them recently they said they are admitted by very very small groups of people and very randomly.

I was told that my decision had been sent through USPS.


My status checker seems to be doing something completely different than ever one else...
