Mine was updated to today's date. This is like the third time it has been updated.

I think they update every weekish on statuses so people dont think theyre being forgotten. They've update mine twice, it seemed like every Friday since I've been in review they have changed my Status (in review) date to show me that I'll be in review for another week.

Just got in (!)... I'm 161/3.9, non-URM. Excited about American's clinics but worried about $ - we'll see how the rest of the cycle pans out.

yay!


LMAO I sent them an email YESTERDAY telling them I had cancelled my Dec. LSAT and to go ahead with the application process... thanks for checking that it wasn't a joke (I thought it might be).

I went complete 11/15, accepted 12/10. No updates during that time.

My numbers were:

157
3.95
Hispanic URM

I really love the school so I hope the money pans out. Does anyone know if you get $$ offers when accepted, or later on in the cycle? I did not get any $$ when accepted but maybe someone else knows their process.

Just accepted today, went complete last friday. This is my first choice safety school and my first acceptance, so I am pretty stoked. I am worried about the $$$ like other people, but we'll see how the cycle pans out.

Congrats to everyone that got in today! The class is starting to shape up a bit.

I'm concerned about money as well. AU sucks with money, but here's to hoping we get lucky.

Accepted today via snail mail dated 12/17 (yesterday). My status checker still says application complete, and I never received an email, so I'd try not to obsess about these details... 165/3.77, very pleased I was not YP'ed.

So it's been awhile since anyone has posted, do we think decisions might come out this week? or next week?

A lot of law schools send decisions out the week after the new year. So, maybe AU will send out some acceptances/rejections/WL next week.

Good luck to those waiting!

I went on a tour and spoke with one of the admissions people, she said a bulk of their decisions go out in January/February. Reason being they wait for people who took the December LSAT's and then applied. They extended some reg decision offers and focused mainly on their early decision pool, who heard in Mid-December. So hopefully we will hear something in the next week or two. December LSAT Scores are due out between Friday and Monday.

The quicker you fill out FAFSA and NeedAccess, the sooner you get scholarship information. However, AU is very notorious for being stingy with aid.

Reading through last years AU thread, I see that most people were notified in mid February.

I just shoot an app yesterday, with my December retake [lower] score, I wonder how long would it take to get them review my app?

international applicant, 163/162, any hope for $$?

Nope, still complete since 12/17. They've got to start sending out large quantities of decisions soon, right?
