Results come out Friday. Tso nervous. At least I'm spending the weekend in Sonoma so I can wine away my sorrows.

What's worse having the write on right after finals when ur in school mode but burnt out. Or in the summer where your less burnt out but not In School mode? For me Un gla that I is it right after finals or else there would be no way that I'd even finish it.

Still nothing.

I am getting more and more worried every day.

Does anyone know if schools usually inform people if they DIDN'T make it?

I haven't seen anyone celebrate on Facebook, so I am assuming they have not notified anyone yet...

At our school, those that did not make it were not notified individually. After the selections were made, the board sent out an email to everyone that submitted an entry in the write-on competition listing everyone that made it.

There are all kinds of things that can delay the results, so you really can't read anything into the time it takes to hear back.

I know this isn't helpful for your outlook on the situation, but ideally there wouldn't be talk on Facebook about who made it until the board makes some kind of announcement. We requested that incoming members not tell anyone that they got on until we sent out the announcement. It can cause a lot of problems/heartache.

So fucked.

In the middle of my write-on. The AC in my apartment just broke-down.

So fucked.

Will be happy to be over with the urge to re-read my comment. Done it a half-dozen times, never a good way to make yourself feel better.

Congrats to those who've heard back so far!

Any Fordham people hear back from LR yet? I've heard from Urban/International the last 2 days but not LR.

No indication they've gone out today, including Twitter - https://twitter.com/nyulawreview - so best bet is tomorrow. Last year most of the journals called Tuesday of the second week of July.

Our school called all who made it and then sent out a giant email congratulating those who made it by listing their names the day after.

I was angry at the wait 1L year too.

Then I was a 2L who worked 10 hours at a SA job and then had to come home to grade fifteen casenotes.

Fifteen sloppily written, boring casenotes ;)

You'll be there soon.

Wait, do all schools call or something some do? Please tell me they won't rescind the offer if you don't pick up.

Cause I am away on vacation in July and will have no way of answering any calls...
