I think it just goes to show status checker theories aren't always correct.

Submitted towards the end of December. There is no status showing up on my status checker. Just shows:
Term: Fall Year: 2011
Program Time: Full Time Degree: JD

Should I call them tomorrow? Anyone else experience this?

You were DR 12/28, and just got your email today?

Did you just wait around for the last month wondering...?

Sigh, I'm still waiting to hear from DR 1/14. I had them mail a copy of the letter to a friend in the states, but he hasn't seen hide or hair of it... I know it's likely not great news, but I'd love to find out if it's a hold vs. a ding or whatever.

No offers with acceptance package that I know. But I'm going to be withdrawing soon, how do you do that again anyway? Good luck and have fun (as much as possible in l-school) at BC guys!

Really because I thought the package had like this card they wanted me to fill out. One of my best friends from UG is going to be going there (we were supposed to do the law school struggle together) so it's kind of sad not to attend.

So, I got my public scholarship application in the mail. Does anyone know how long it takes for them to get back to us with interview invites? I'd go look in last year's thread, but I have to address envelopes for my upcoming wedding. :-)

Anyone on hold have their status checker updated to a second review?

I was wondering if they do this. Thanks!

Are you already accepted? Do they review apps and then prod people to apply?

Re: public interest scholarship. I was accepted back in December. They encouraged everyone to apply for the public interest scholarship (even people without a decision yet), as the priority deadline is February 1 (postmarked). However, they will accept applications after February 1 if there's still spaces or something.

And for those wondering about merit aid, there's no clarity... at one point they said decisions would be out in January, and another time they said March. I'm thinking it will be more like March, as I haven't heard about anyone receiving a merit scholly yet.

Awesome. I haven't been accepted yet and not sure that I will, but I applied for the Public Service Scholarship regardless. I almost think my scholarship package is better than my regular application! Here's hoping...
