I read this somewhere too, but I can't remember. It may have actually been TLS or Boalt's website. And I believe acceptances are by both, some phone calls but not everyone and everyone gets an email.

Oh yeah, forgot we are supposed to hear back by the 12th. That's good to know...hoping for good news, but I already have a lot of great choices that I am grateful for, so I won't be totally crushed if I don't get in. I just regret not applying earlier.

My guess is that some good news phone calls will arrive tomorrow afternoon/evening and a whole bunch of e-mails saying yay/nay/maybe will come on Thursday. But I am guessing and full of wishful thinking.

A previous post has him in at Columbia, so I'm guessing rather good...

@ Zarathustra: Will you be taking that Columbia acceptance and withdrawing from Boalt?

Last year they posted no new decisions (other than waitlist movement) after 3/15. So I would guess so.

No news here yet. In February there were a few admits the day before the big wave and then a bunch of admits/waitlists/rejections the next day. Presumably, a few faculty groups finished early.

I've felt like that even before I applied since everyone I know has told me not to even bothering applying because I'm going to be rejected.

Yesterday someone told me they would slit their wrists if I got in. Sooo not encouraging at all...

I just want it over with...all of this waiting is killing me.

yeah, i don't know if waitlisted or rejected would be worse. i think waitlisted. i just want closure now that my dream is dead, so i can move on with my life and stop dreaming about this school. :mrgreen:

i've actually only heard back from 4 schools and i'm pleased with my options already
