My "Decision rendered" is too early?

Postby vacations » Thu Jan 28, 2010 5:05 pm

Hi everybody,

Is the fact that my application went complete in early January and I just got word that a decision has been made on my application (1/28) generally a sign that it's a rejection or waitlist? I would think schools would usually take a bit longer to come to a decision...

I'm at the school's 25th for GPA and just a tad under neath their 25TH LSAT...I figured I'd just apply and give it a shot anyhow.


Thanks for your input.

That's what happened to me at two of my reaches. Dinged right away. I went complete at around 1/5-1/7, both rejections and really quick. Sorry...

I had two schools make decisions for me in less than 2 full weeks, one in as little as 6 days and they were both acceptances.

Thanks all for the input so far.

Yeah, I think I'm beginning to accept the fact it's most likely a rejection - lol.

But we'll see

I see on LSN some folks getting quick decisions - mostly rejects, but a few acceptances.

Anybody else with similar experience?

thanks

Due to the below 25th percentiles unless you have a compelling reason otherwise for them to admit you and the fast turnaround, I would not be expecting an acceptance.
