When do law schools let you know?

Postby Chickensoup » Thu Sep 13, 2012 12:08 pm

I'm applying early to most schools. If I finish my apps by the end of September, when will they let me know if I got in?

Specifically,

Cornell?
NYU?
Penn?
Georgetown?
Fordham?
Michigan?

I'd check LSN for an estimate but you really can't predict with too much accuracy. I'd say starting around thanksgiving through January you should hear from most schools if you're auto admit or admit but if you're on the cusp, it could take much longer.

One school I applied to didn't let me know until the last week of august - when I was already attending a different school

Any time between October and the day before classes start (sometimes even later). HTH

in my case, later (see above note - this was after orientation at the respective school)
