Don't really wanna go digging to confirm this, but I think someone said at least one of the days (with a lot of admits) last cycle spilled into the next day.

See AbsoluteAzn's post below.

I'm sure they'll update the twitter with more information soon either way!

This is correct. A small group of RD applicants got in at the end of December last year, but the first big group heard back January 14 AND 15.

I'm sure they'll update the twitter with more information soon either way!

Thanks Eski! I was pretty sure it was you that said that a few days ago.

Btw, CONGRATS!!

+1 And if I remember correctly the splitter was URM.


FYI, I'm a splitter (3.6) with acceptance (posted earlier) and not URM.

Was looking at last year's thread and I don't think anyone got in on Jan 15 last year. There were people who got calls on 1/14 whose status checkers updated to "Admitted" on the 15th and there were some WL/Rs but doesn't look like anyone got in on the 15 last year.

Of course, this year's batch is much bigger and the updates are definitely not by complete date so we probably need a special chicago precedent cat in here :)

Yeah, sorry guys! People on LSN had reported the 15th, but it looks like they actually heard on the 14th. My bad!

But like I said, they've been great with the twitter updates so I'm sure they'll let y'all know what's going on soon!

+1 on the admitted students info, I'd really appreciate a PM. I wrote it in marker on a napkin and left it at school. All I remember is that it made me laugh.

Thanks!

I guess the quick, bullet-point answers would be:

-love the small size (went to a huge UG and didn't like it at all)
-mom's from Chicago, LOVE the city
-like the studious/nerdy vibe (I don't want a party school atmosphere for LS)
-flights home to Nashville are ridiculously cheap, so it will be very easy to get back to see my family
-lower COL than in NYC, and I want CCN (hopefully for biglaw)

I had a teacher who gave me a B because she took the grade down a letter if you were absent 4 or more times. I was absent 4 times and for each one I let her know I had to take my father to the hospital, but would make up the work/notes. She told me at the end of the year that if she made the exception for me she'd have to make it for everyone. hate that professor to this day. It was a horrible soci class (sociology of sex, which I thought meant gender) I never should have taken.

PS I'm clearly still trying to get over my bitterness.

I haven't yet... means that I am not even good enough to be doomed to wait for 8 more months before having my hopes dashed. =C =C =C =C =C

Like seriously though... we need to have an official day in which we "honor" those people who should have never entered the education profession. Seems like both of our instructors make that list.
