Slow-to-respond schools

Postby estjohn7 » Mon Apr 12, 2010 6:16 pm

Anyone else still waiting for responses? I submitted all of mine before Jan. deadlines, and have yet to hear back from Northwestern, Cornell, and NYU. My deposit for UT is due on Thursday, so I'm a little peeved. Anyone have a similar experience, just so I don't feel so alone? I feel like I paid money for them, so I deserve at least a response of some sort...

Best of luck to all applicants.

EDIT: If this is totally normal, awesome, but I'm not surrounded with people trying to flock into law school -- you guys get to be my expert advice. Most sites say 8-10 weeks for response, and that is long gone by now, hence the brainscratching.

I have only heard back from one of the nine schools I replied to. Put a seat deposit down there April 1, but am still waiting on:

UNC
Wake Forest
Villanova
BC
Notre Dame
Colorado
Denver
UConn

At this point, I am 99% sure I am being rejected from all of them, but with a 162/3.5 that doesn't make a lot of sense. Some of them I knew were reaches in the first place, but geez. I'm with you, just hearing something- anything- would be nice.

Got Cornell's waitlist yesterday actually.

No USC or, interestingly enough, William and Mary yet.

Applied super late, still waiting on Columbia, USC, Stanford, Penn, NYU and Fordham. Thinking my odds aren't that great....

Cornell has a bunch of people waiting. Yours truly included. But I am also waiting on Harvard and Chicago. If you applied before January and are still waiting, they are considering you but want to reserve the decision until after seat deposits. That's what I think anyways.

Today marks 5 months from the day I applied to USC, and I know there are people who have been waiting longer.
Those who are complaining because they have been waiting since Feb. need to chill out...

Application submitted 2/8
Email on 3/5 about a missing form that they in fact had
Silence
Silence
Silence
I called on 3/25, was told that I'd receive a 'complete email' soon
Ditto on 4/9
Yesterday I got an email in error about that same form being missing, got an apology and was told that I should be finding out in 4-6 weeks
Today I got the actual 'complete email'
The Admissions Committee is reviewing completed files. We review files in the order that they become complete.

So 9 weeks after I submitted my application, it is now in a line to be reviewed behind the other people that applied 10+ weeks ago.
Efficiency is lacking here.



Similar problems. They "never received" a form that my UG sent them the 2nd wk in February. They did not tell me they didn't have said form until yesterday despite e-mails and calls to make sure they had everything.

Deposited at Nova. In at ND with cash. Will deposit either there as well, or at SMU, if I get into SMU.

Given my choices of market, I would deposit at SMU if I got in with cash. However, ND's deposit deadline is Tuesday. I was complete at SMU 2/3, and since then, radio silence.

E-mailed ND, asked for more time. Hope I get it.

Also waiting on GW since December.
