Hey guys,

First post. Just went D/F 5/5 after over 6 months of waiting. 3.35 and 169 w/ Ivy UG. I'm guessing we're not going to make it - too bad. USC was a top choice of mine. Looks like it's GW now.
good chance you get waitlisted. do a LOCI campaign. your LSAT can get you in off the waitlist.


You get an email if your WLed.... it's just a flat out admit/deny decision at this point. I've already LOCIed and sent in an updated LOR since it's been so long. We will see.

Submitted some WL materials last week -- did anyone get any kind of receipt confirmation?

The decision letters come in letter-sized envelopes, so that could probably fit in a mailbox. Anyhow, good luck!

Not that I know of (not on TLS or LSN). I am WL'd as well and have been following it pretty closely. If you haven't already, you may want to take a look at this thread: http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=153876

yes, is that surprising? I was expecting a WL the whole time cause of my splitter numbers....it just makes me mad cause 2-3 years ago I would've gotten in with $$ probably

Just so you know, from what I've read on this thread acceptances and rejection letters from USC both come in regular sized envelopes :P

This is true. The larger packet comes a week or so later if you are admitted.

Rejected 5/3. I liked the part of their letter where they encouraged me to apply as a transfer for Fall of 2012. Given their track record I'd probably graduate before they gave me a decision. :roll:

Still IR here - 4/18. It's a bit of reach for me, so I'm not holding my breath.


IR again - 5/13. Sigh...

I submitted my app on December 28th, 2010---> status went complete on Jan. 6th---> UR on 4/18---> DF on 5/13

At this point, is it realistic to assume rejection? I am trying to avoid being the debby downer but I just think it's ridiculous that it takes 4.5 months to render a decision about my application.
