Ha, at least you're already waitlisted. I'm still waiting on a response.


I'm surprised you haven't got a response yet. Looks like people who applied slightly before and after you have gotten replies. I guess that means any day now you will get your acceptance.

Also based on this thread am I correct in saying Marquette does not have a status checker?

I want them to send me a damn email or something :x


Nope. I wish they did so I could add another school to my list of status checkers that I neurotically check every other hour.

I really hope I'm not waiting as long as you to find out if I am in or not. I was thinking that since I applied so late they would be able to figure out if I am in or out a lot quicker. I mean if only a few spots exist it shouldn't be hard to give me a yay/nay (although if its nay they can hold off on telling me :P)

I'd feel pretty confident if I were you. Your LSAT would be an auto-admit in any other circumstance.

i thought they did a pretty good job... beautiful building + free t shirt.


I was; I had a nice time as well. And not only a free t-shirt, one that you got to pick the size of so you might actually have the opportunity to wear it. Then again, I'm a sucker for free things like that.

I finally got an email saying my application has gone complete. I wonder what took so long. I have had all my stuff in, and I have even got accepted to another school already that I actually applied to a day after Marquette. Aww well. I just hope they accept me :)

Thanks man.

I really hope both of us get a decision soon. I will die if they take the full 8 weeks.

How long did it take you all to get the application complete e-mail?

Six days even though I had everything in the whole time. Although my transcripts did get updated one time in that period so I think that explains it.

I wonder what the average time from completion to decision is?

I'm screwed I think. They probably just threw out my app.

The 30th. I'm hoping for a miracle.

I sent mine in the same day (that is 6 days right?). I don't think you have any more reason to worry then me. How did you do on the LSAT?

Don't know about anyone else but I turned in my app in late Feb and was really surprised to receive my acceptance letter in the mail less than two weeks later.

Did they call or email first?

Edit: What are your numbers relative to mine?

I bet you have about the same chance as me to get in. My LSAT is higher but I don't have any really great softs. I bet you will get an email from them tomorrow.

Before the other guy comes here and complains I am being to optimistic. Let us be clear that I really have no clue what I am talking about. I am trying to be optimistic to convince myself of my own chances :lol:

I really would like to attend Marquette.

Nope. I heard nothing from them between my completion notification email and my decision letter (which was super scary because it was so small it looked like a for sure rejection). Scholarship info came a few days after with a big acceptance package.

Yeah, I have an okay feeling about it. But I think my P.S. was pretty good because it set me apart from other applicants. I'm really hoping my 2 LORs were awesome too (which they should be). If thats the case, that may push me over.

Have you applied to many other places? Or is Marquette a clear #1.

And good luck, just don't take my spot :lol:

I've done Gonzaga, Marquette and Valpo. But Marquette is really the #1. I'm from the Milwaukee area and my immediate family lives there. I have a sort of attachment to Milwaukee and I really like Marquette.

coolgreen - my numbers are similar to yours... my LSAT a little lower and GPA a little higher. Had some pretty unique WE and great LORs so that prob helped.
