I think in this scenario a call is definitely in order. I think those recent letters were for people who were DF way later.


No, i'm pretty sure that they never mailed the letters until this past week. There were some 12/08 DFers that got them already. Just give it a few more days.

Well, couldn't hurt to wait a couple days then. There were a couple people on LSN accepted last month with that DF date, one a clear auto admit and the other also strong, which I was going by. Depends on your remaining patience I suppose!

Good question. I wanna say it was 12/3. My application was submitted and complete back in mid-October.

Well, seems that no one who has gone IR after the 5th or so of December has gone DF yet which makes me a bit more relieved. I guess next week SHOULD be the time some of us early to mid December completes should get some DFs.

Nah, just a letter and a booklet with important dates/deadlines basically telling you how to do everything online (including finaid). Also spoke of some email I should be expecting.

Rothman. There's talk of it in this thread already. You have nothing to lose, aside from a bit of time.

They probably take longer to get back to nonURMs with 166 or below.
167 is their magic # I think.
That said, you have a good shot at getting in so I wouldn't stress about rejection/WL yet. They haven't even reviewed your app yet! They might love it and admit you soon :) Stay positive.



Thank you so much for the encouraging and positive post! I really hope youre right. I think I would pretty much go to USC if I got in. I am 100% sure that I want to work in LA. Thanks the advice support....goodluck to you too!

Does the Rothman invite have any indication on acceptance or denial? Got the packet today to apply to the scholly.

It's numbers based, so if you got invited it means you have strong numbers for USC and are likely to be admitted. However, it's not a guarantee by any means.

ETA: I got the invite & was accepted just to add a set of data points.

Samesies, though I'm on the East Coast so I'm hoping the (acceptance??) letter is taking its time trudging over here.

I'm still sitting at complete 11/22. This is the only school I'm not even under review yet. At this rate, December LSAT takers will probably go under review before me.
