Fantastic. I hope this doesn't mean it's lost in the mail somewhere. Rejections via snail mail too?


I'm in the same boat - applied 10/22, complete 11/23... still nothing. I think they accepted everyone they wanted to offer 120K to and are now waiting to accept the rest of the class... or at least that's what I'm hoping. I called last week and the secretary told me it would probably still be a few weeks. Hopefully it will be sooner!


ughhhh, if it's going to be a "few weeks" for you, and I applied a few weeks after you, then it could be another MONTH for me. By then, I will have been complete or whatever for 3 months when they said a decision is mailed within "6 to 8 weeks"

Actually, with your numbers you should hear something soon. They have been jumping at practically anything 167+ and seem to be waiting on everyone else. FWIW, according to TLS they have already made decisions for some people complete as late a 1/31

My rejections was via snail mail and it was 6 or so weeks from when I went complete. I'm sure my numbers were auto-reject, though.

We had a lengthy discussion about this some pages back. I'm virtually certain they admit high LSATs ASAP and hold everyone else until they see how their class profile is shaking out.

I applied at the very end of Jan with a 167 (URM), should I be concerned that I haven't received a response (I live in Cali, so there is a 'mail delay')?

2 weeks would be pretty quick, even as urm 167. I'd give it another two weeks before worrying 'bout it. good luck.

I have seen one person on LSN that was complete 1/31 and received their decision but he/she were an auto admit.

Thanks dude. As a late applicant, I'm lucky to even be in consideration. I'm just a lil anxious.

Does anyone know about how large the admit package is (the physical letter or package)? I got in via the "stipend" email yesterday, and I'm scared that the post office won't leave the package (I live in a "bad" part of Houston where they won't leave anything unless it fits in the mailbox...and I have the smallest mailbox ever).

Stipend question:

Do they put us up in a hotel for one or two days? I'd stay for two if it's free.

I don't want to ask on the phone cause I know I'm a cheapskate.

It's a USPS cardboard envelope...like 12.5"x9.5". I would think they would leave it.

I got an email a couple days ago saying they'd put us up for two nights and pay for travel. But they said it was part of the "scholarship offer" so I imagine that that's not universal? I imagine if you call, they'd put you up anyway.

thank you guys....and yes I'm definitely considering attending!!! I'm stoked and now will have another school to visit. I haven't been following the thread much due to thinking it would be a while until I heard something, but they got back rather quickly. Congrats to all you who have been accepted and what not, I'll prob be back on later tomorrow with some questions, so I hope some of you guys will be able to help...woohooo
