Good luck! My numbers suck heh. Did you apply for full time and part time or just full time?

While I'm normally not one to put all my eggs in one basket, I did full time only because I am already a full time grad student (at uconn school of social work) and am not looking to quit that program, just do the dual degree, so the part time evening division wouldn't be an option for me with my schedule.

I am having a hard time looking up stats for the part time program. I found somewhere that the 25th percentile for the LSAT was 156 for PT. I wonder how much of a boost people get that are in-state. Anyone else going nuts waiting? I feel like I have become crazy to a certain extent.

It says "decision" under my status too, however it doesn't say that I owe any fees, does this mean I'm rejected?

I called them she doesn't know the answer the above question, and they said they'd be sending out emails hopefully later next week their behind due to all the storms.

Does anyone else show any fees due under fees on the app status?


No fees under mine as well. Hope this doesn't mean anything bad either...I would really like UConn as an option.

Best of luck!!


Having a blank fee box is not a bad sign, I was accepted about 2 weeks ago and my fees section is blank.

Blank fees box means nothing. I was accepted a few weeks ago and got a scholarship email yesterday and my fees box is still blank.

I haven't been accepted yet, it just says "decision" under my app status, no email yet. And they said the emails will go out by the end of next week, now THATS torture!

Seriously it takes what two seconds to send a email?

emails by the end of next week? wow. I don't understand why schools put things like "decision rendered" or something of the sort... personally i think it defeats the purpose of a status checker.

mine's been updated to decision as well. Will it seriously take a few weeks to send out emails or is that just a generous guess?

I bet it is a generous guess. You might get an email right before 5 like they have done in the past. I don't see it taking longer than next week. If so, they shouldn't update the tracker...

I called the office a couple days ago and they said that they averaged both full time's and part time's numbers together. and the median average for both divisions is 161. they dont have separate statistics for the divisions. which makes me uncomfortable to say the least.

Thanks! Hopefully you're right with the 5 o'clock email rather than obsessively checking my email all next week…again.

That doesn't mean anything heh. It looks like it was a 156 for the 25th and 158 for Median. PT numbers are always lower, but with the recent inclusion of them to US News they have gone up or seats have been limited at schools offering PT programs. The question remains if they would take someone with a High GPA and a Low LSAT and then compensate with someone with a Low GPA and a High LSAT.

Not sure about the 5 PM email, but that happened a couple times. I have no idea what schools are up to this cycle. The decrease in apps and the weather really screwed everything.

Hmm, getting a second review I guess. So, did you guys get your decisions today? LSN shows some acceptances and a waitlist.

No one said anything about a second round of review except that poster. Relax, you can't read into things like this. I am anxious too, but it means nothing. We will hear soon. Hopefully, we are up next. It seems like they release decisions towards the end of the week. Who really knows though.

By the way, is Hartford as bad a city as I keep hearing?
