Sweet! That's my complete date! My mail doesn't come for a while yet + ice = waiting

Behind by whose schedule?


Based on LSN, there is an overwhelming amount of applicants still pending. If they want people to utilize ASD in early March, they have a lot of work to do.


The March ASD is typically felt to be targeting the best and the brightest (the early admits) to try to steal them away from other schools, so there's not all that huge a rush to make sure everyone can make it.

Even if that weren't true, I don't understand how they could be behind when there's no criteria to judge that by.

-Pufer


My criteria is that they said 6-8 weeks to get a decision.

But honestly it isn't worth arguing about.

I didn't receive the Woman in Law email until the day after/day of receiving the letter. Also, I think the event passed so I doubt that email will be going out anymore.

Congrats!!

Wednesday was a good day for me. Hope this Wednesday serves you all well!

Also -- Do we need to sign up for our ASD? Or call the admissions office? I don't see anything about it.

Woot! I live in Seattle! Where's home?

CU's March ASD is on March 4th, IIRC



Damn! I was thinking it was March 14th, which is when I'm flying back. Home is Houston, TX! I'll actually be in Seattle partly to tour UW and SU (even though I know I don't really have a prayer at UW and that SU is not a particularly good idea.)

Both parts of Seattle are amazing. Capitol Hill (SU) is super diverse with a ton of cool people and endless different types of bars. U-District (UW) is a really chill place and one of my favorite campuses and campustowns that I've ever been to. Have fun partying while you're here... Then make the right choice and go to CU :-)

For what its worth, my sister went to undergrad at SU. She really enjoyed the people and school. She also liked all the things to do in the area. Although, living in such a crowded and busy area started to get to her after 4 years.

I've actually been to Seattle before and felt so much more at home than I do in the South. Ocean + mountains + Capitol Hill + people everywhere = awesommmme.

But yeah, never been to Denver for more than half an hour or so omw to the mountains, so I will definitely have to check it out if CU offers me any $$. =D

(sorry to continue the derail! i guess if you have a reply, chrisbru, you can PM me haha.)

Yeah, I don't know that it would bother me. I grew up in the suburbs, so I really like busy city places.

Speaking of that, how is the Denver area? I know the school itself is in Boulder, but I think I'd prefer to live in Denver. Is it busy?

The two people who got accepted from 11/19, where do you live? I'm hoping snowpocalypse just delayed mine.

If you don't mind me asking, where in ND are you from? I'm from Bismarck originally, but waiting for a letter from Colorado in Moorhead MN right now. It would be sweet to know another NoDak person in law school (and one that isn't UND...)

Congrats! Sounds like I may be waiting until next week, since I went complete 11/23... But I'll keep my fingers crossed anyway!

That's awesome! What was your essay on, if you don't mind me asking?


Mainly crunchy things that make me fit right in at Boulder.

Also, he said they were finalizing scholarships next week, so offers should be arriving soon. Get excited everyone.

I doubt I'll get anything either, but I would be oh so ecstatic to find a scholarship in my mailbox! I'm so glad they aren't taking forever to send out $$ like last year.

I currently attend CU for undergrad and man would I give anything to stay here instead of going back east (where my perm residence is). CU has the nicest campus in the entire country period. I have 3.5/157, no chance I get in but damn, would I attend in a heartbeat? Yes.

Also, does CU do status check? I never received a link or username and I'm wondering if maybe that's because I live in Boulder.
