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.

Definitely not all ding or WL.


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


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....


Please tell me your username references the SNL skit about Gore


Well yes and no. I remember him making the comment in one of the debates actually and the fact that he repeated it several times. The SNL skit reinforced the hilarity of it all.

Haha, amen. My gpa is above their 75th, and my lsat is at their median. Any movement for you today? I'm still DF 2/7, lame.

Do you mean UR 2/7...because what movement would you need after DF?? :mrgreen:


Oh, whoops haha, yeah; I meant UR 2/7 (previously UR 11/22). I'm just so used to seeing "DF"s in the comments (jealous).

Stuck in complete 11/16. #s are both median.
Shouldn't be only me....any idea why I'm stuck?


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



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


I've literally posted my scores on this thread at least twice today, but good one buddy! FWIW, I'm not negative, I'm just being realistic.

Just for you I'll say my stats again.

GPA above 75% / LSAT below 25%
Not URM
Very strong application (confirmed by multiple academic advisors) Who I hope weren't just making me feel good.

Just one year, they should send people door to door to reject people. Preferably the dean himself. That way, you could be like, "well, I didn't get in, but at least I don't have to go door to door to 6,000 people just to have a really awkward conversation."

What about acceptances? I had USC down as a safety, I'd be shocked if I was rejected or w/l.

2/7 people should find out tmw, when socal people get their letters

*edit: I take this back. Looks like it took from a week to a month for most people to get letters when they went DF

my status also changed to decision finalized on 2/7. not to stir the pot or anything but i'm a 3.67/172, i think it's pretty strong but definitely not YP territory...
would they really send out ALL acceptances or ALL rejections? it doesn't really make sense; if they're ready to send out batches why would they save acceptances or rejections they already rendered just to keep the batch homogeneous?

anyway, has anyone confirmed the post above that all WL's are actually shown on your status checker - hence applicants in the 2/7 group are either IN or OUT?

I'm going to call and ask some of these questions.

I think I'll at least ask whether WLs are notified via status checker and how soon after DF I can look out for the mail ( a week/3 weeks - some idea).

Will post what they say.

My thoughts: the VERY early (for USC) DFs (the Dec batch) had to wait for letters until the Jan batch. But the 2 batches in Jan seemed to get them within 3-7 days of DF...

I don't think anyone has been WL this year, as of yet. However, last year, WL people were notified through there status checker only (although, I only read until Feb 22nd in last years forum, so this could have changed latter in the cycle.)

So we really don't know anything for sure.

CALLED THE ADMISSIONS OFFICE:

A) Waitlist shows up on status checker

B) They send out mailings within "a couple of days" of DF and then transit time depends on weather/distance between USC and your location for the postal service.

Is anyone still stuck in 11/22 purgatory with me? At this point they could have translated my application into Sanskrit, sent it to Oxford, had them review the app, and sent it back with a decision on the QE2.
