shame...

My status checker says accepted. I am wondering about a scholarship though, anybody hear back from them yet regarding scholarship $? And if so, did your status say accepted WITH scholarship? That would at least prevent the letdown!


In the packet they mail to you a few days after acceptance, it will say if you are being considered for a scholarship. They hope to have most of them out by mid-March according to the letter.

For those who are (im)patiently waiting, I wouldn't be too concerned!

I submitted 11/12, went UR 12/15. Heard back from/got into 7 other schools in the mean time and was concerned about Brooklyn (my #2 choice, even though I got into #1), and my parents were convinced I wasn't getting in because I didn't write the optional essay :lol: Went IR 1/24 and then got the accepted email 1/25, followed by some other acceptance emails from alumni/other deans. So I think they're just getting started with sending out acceptances!

3.43/164 for what it's worth. No phone call, but I can update when I get the letter in the mail.

Thanks for the feedback! Quick question: I'm currently at "ready for review", is there an actual "under review" or similar status I should be aware of in the status checker?

I've been "in review" for a couple of weeks already. No reason to be scared as it seems they are very relaxed when it comes to making decisions.

Yeah, I've been in review for 11/1, so don't think that something exciting is going to happen all of a sudden.. it's probably just another looong wait.

I've been "In review" since 1/11. Anyone else go under review around that time? Have you heard back or are you still waiting?

My status checker also had no status at first until about a week in or so. Regarding a different post, i also went in review around 1/11 and have not heard anything yet. I have a bad feeling that it might be a while.

Lol it sure seems that way at this point. Although, according to law school predictor, it says "admit" for the part time program (which is what I appied to, how bout u?) with a 94% chance. Assuming that it's somewhat accurate, we may still be in the running :D

Is it a bad idea to email admissions and ask them for an update? I feel as though I have been "in review" for an eternity and aside from the email's and also the BLS Law Notes packets I have not heard a word from them.
