Man, the wait is made even more stressful by my UVa ding 5 minutes ago. Granted, I hear nonresident admissions is pretty brutal, but ouch. Come on, USC, don't let me down!

If this is true, it would be an interesting departure from last year's practice, where every batch was homogeneous.

I wonder how many are stuck in 'complete' since Nov like me with reasonable #s.
Stuck in complete 11/16. #s are both median.
Shouldn't be only me....any idea why I'm stuck?

Complete 11/15. I have no idea what's going on. 3.5/170.

Because DF 2/7 group = most likely denial or WL.

You are still in it to win it. Trust me, you don't want to be in the DF 2/7 group with me and my LSAT score.

Please love 2/7 group USC!

P.S. Idea for title of a new "How to get a 170 LSAT" thread, one that better stresses the importance of retaking if you don't perform well: Me and my LSAT score

What are your stats? Also, do you know around what time you went DF (later in the day..?)

Thanks.

It might be a batch with different decisions, but I'm in DF 2/7 group and law school predictor has me at "ADMIT" (>95%).

I love TLS. Where people think they can objectively evaluate their own credentials.

I'm overly defensive when people claim the whole batch is WL/ding ...
but my stats
GPA = 75
LSAT above median, below 75

Pretty sure that ain't YP :)

Has this been the practice with USC prior to last year as well? Not sure if it really matters, just trying to see if there is a pattern. Oh well, I guess i'll just wait for the letter in the mail....

FYI

WL's are exclusively notified online by the status checker...a large packet comes in the mail about a week after.

Admits and Rejections are notified via snail mail in a small envelope.

I'm almost certainly going to be rejected from USC.
My decision has not yet been rendered.
Therefor, this next batch of acceptances are all admits.

Droppin logic bombs on yo moms.

If your goal is to be the most negative person on this thread can you at least post your scores so we get an idea of what they are before you make everyone feel bad

Been lurking about here, rooting for everyone! :)

I got my app in right at the deadline and have been "In Review" as of 1/28/11. Any idea on the turn-around?
I'm a URM, 167/4.05 GPA with 2 MA's (UCLA and UofC).

Congrats on all the admits and good luck to the rest of us :)

The fact that you're already UR suggests you're on the fast track, so not really sure how accurate of a timeframe these other apps could provide. You obviously stand an excellent chance, though.
