Out of curiosity, what is the date at the top of your acceptance letter? Feb 3rd?

ME TOO ME TOO ME TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111111 So freaking happy right now, y'all. EEEEEEEee!!!!


Congrats!

Any idea how long it takes L&C to send out actual mailed acceptance?


I was able to log in starting on Feb 8th... got it in Seattle on Feb 10th. So I'm betting it went out in the mail on the 9th with how fast mail is between Portland and Seattle.

Didn't your letter say "We understand that finances.. bla blah blah in mid-April... we will know if there is any prospect of our having additional funds... if you are seriously considering attending... and you would like us to evaluate your file again in April, please contact us"

Just gotta call or email and get yourself back into the running for the next scholarships. LSN already shows over 200K that's been turned down.

Hey, they sent me a viewbook and a recruitment letter and when I pulled the viewbook out of the envelope, it had some strange leaf on it...I had to do a double-take. :D

They probably won't give you any information about you application over the phone. I was in review for over two months before I go accepted. You also went complete at a time when A LOT of other people, the people who had taken the December LSAT, went complete as well. You just have to wait it out.

My first complete date was much earlier, the 1/14 was just my only status change after my initial "complete". Thats why I'm thinking a hold, because they've had my complete file for almost 3 months now.

Same here, my second status change reposted it as complete 1/14. No changes since then, and I applied in November!!

Y'all know it never says more than Complete, right? I've been accepted (can get into the ASW site) and mine still just says Complete.

how long b/w the 2nd and 3rd complete day for most of you all (if you remember)? I went from complete 1/18-->2/11 but still can't get into admitted students site. Hoping for a 3rd complete date soon.

THIS, y'all. L&C is nowhere NEAR as reliable with this stuff as some schools. (going by the status checker, that is)

I was accepted, with a near full scholarship, in January. Already got my packet, talked to the guy in the Mentor Program, the whole deal.

TODAY, my status checker still says this:
Current Status: Application File Complete
Current Status Date: 1/13/2011


That's it.

Did you contact them about the Mentor Program? I keep reading about people being contacted by alumnus, professors, etc. I was accepted in December and haven't heard peep since.

How do you log in to admitted student website? Do you use the exact same info that you use log in to their status checking site?

It says right on the L&C status checker page that 'complete' is the last update you will get from the checker. It gives no clue as to when/what your decision will be.

Similar complete dates/ ASW access but still waiting for a letter on the west coast. Have you received anything yet?

I got a random email today asking if I would still attend classes if they started at 5pm instead of 6 (I applied to the part time program). I called this afternoon about it and they told me that I'd been accepted, but my acceptance letter had probably been lost in the mail.

I still can't get into the admitted students website... Hope that gives the rest of you some hope.

No, no mailings from the school. I hope access to the ASW isn't a fluke or I'll show up for ASW (the other kind) and it'll be awk.ward. :)

I got an email today announcing that evening classes would be 5-8 or 5-9, not asking if I'd attend 5pm classes. I'm glad my plans have shifted away from L&C because class at 5pm is pretty much impossible. How can they possibly think most people working full-time jobs would be able to get to campus by 5?

Anyone else get the email about part-time program schedules that has not been admitted? I received it yesterday, but have only had one "app complete" date change and am only about 3 weeks out from app complete date.

Just wondering if it was a mass email sent out to PT program applicants, or if it was only sent to admitted students and a few still in decision mode got included by mistake. Have a call in now and am waiting for call-back.
