Maybe there was a mistake? They included admits in the reject pile and are scrambling to fix it? :|

I don't want to upset anyone because I love you all dearly, but my decision wasn't posted for days after I got the decision e-mail :(

(it was the congratulations e-mail though so horray!)

GOOD LUCK <3

For a school that prides itself on being professional/business oriented, their admissions process is some jank shit

Johann 's tweet , just now

we will manually upload the letters tomorrow. i am sorry and feel absolutely horrible about this.


and e-mail, just now

Our online status check is currently inoperable. We apologize for any frustration this may have caused in trying to download your decision letter this evening. We expect to have the system back up and running by tomorrow afternoon and you will be able to pull up your letter at that time.


torture begins..

If the existence of a 'congratulations' email is true and consistently transmitted for each batch of decisions all of us who received an email today, know what our decision is already.

The probability of being accepted after being held or waitlisted is lower than the original probability of acceptance. Hence, for planning purposes the congrats email is a high probability starting point.

Not rejections. RT @chrisjones233: @tweetsbyjohann We JD TLSers think this is a wait for a rejection batch :( At least we have your sympathy

They seem to be putting a lot of people on hold...assuming no one got a congrats email as well. Anyone know when they started outright waitlisting people?

I can't tell if that means we weren't rejected (aka WL/hold) OR if it means it just wasn't an ENTIRE batch of rejections :(

No it looks like it means either WL, Hold, or acceptances

I just got offered a guaranteed scholarship if I defer a year (I'm 20 years old and they want me to have more work experience). Maybe some of the other letters are 1 year deferrals too?

How were you offered this? In an email or via status checker? PS congrats!! Your LSAT is 9 points higher than mine, so I highly doubt I'll get a guaranteed scholarship in a year :?
