to wait this long and get a rejection would be heart breaking

Still IC since 5/4. I have 0.00 for deposit amounts, so it's not looking good. Deny or waitlist. But just tell me soon, please.

unless it says DR and u still have 0.00 , then I'd be worried, but hang in there, I honestly can not understand how it can take them this long to deny someone, so we ought to be WL or accepted.. (too bad I still think I'm getting the boot)

IC moved from 2/4 to 5/11. So, uh...at least there's that.

My status checker moved from 5/4 to 5/11 today, too.

You know a school is taking a long time with your application when you've already been accepted at another school off the WL (with $$, no less!). Let's hope they don't send another email extending their time frame for making decisions :x

Yep...Already been accepted off of another WL and had to pay TWO deposits at different schools. And I'm really starting to question how expensive SCU is...

I agree. I was just accepted off the WL at two schools and begged for an extension from one in hopes I can avoid paying their deposit before SC gives a decision. Maybe I should just skip law school all together.

It kind of feels like this:

Dear Applicant,

We have been jerking you around for some time now and not informing you that you are actually wait listed. We greatly apologize that you may have already spent hundreds of dollars on other schools or have delayed travel plans to visit schools that you already admitted to, so that you have to pay an increased air fare and hotel room rates.

We are planning on delaying our final verdict on your application until August and at that point we can either reject you or accept you, but you will not be able to come because you have already moved to a different state to attend school.

Needless to say I am frustrated with this entire process...

I don't even know what else I can send them. I wrote a LOCI when I did not hear from them in months. Wonder if there is a point in writing another one. I pretty much already said everything I wanted to in the first one. This cycle is driving me nuts.

Haha...thank you. I needed that optimism. Maybe you're right, this is just getting ridiculous.

Yep, got a WL too. I feel like they were too lazy to even deal with my application and basically said hey if we have an empty seat, I'll get around to that stack of apps.

Waitlisted as well... I will be withdrawing my app. At least now I can stop checking that infernal online status page. :roll:
