Letters will include scholarships and should go out this week or early next week according to Dean Shively.

Yup! Last year my scholarship came with my letter.

I was going to apply anyway, and when I got to the certification screen on LSAC, there was a very nice waiver notice waiting for me!

I only applied last week, and don't know how long it will take to hear. I'm guessing March. My numbers are 2.9/165. Unless having learning disabilities constitutes a URM, I am un-diverse, but hoping the LSAT score along with having lived in China will get me acceptances, and really hoping for scholarships, too.

Why do you consider it a reach? I'm a splitter, so it's hard for me to tell what's a reach and what's not (you know, besides the top 20, maybe 30 schools). Good luck!

I submitted my app to Penn State a few weeks ago. Still not under review. Good luck to all.

Well, my GPA is very high, but my LSAT is very bad. I got a fee waiver telling me that I am a competitive applicant, but I just do not know how true it is. I am way above the 75th for GPA, but under the 25th for the LSAT.

Okay, I'm just the other way around. I hope the fee waiver is a good sign for you; I got one from them, but I only found out about it when I went to apply!

Got an email today exlaining my estimated cost of attendance. Seemed like a fairly pointless email.

+1. I think they just want to keep our attention while they shuffle their feet getting scholly info out so we don't decide to go somewhere else...

I've been under review since 11/16. Grab a box of snickers cuz its probably going to take a while.
Although to be fair, 2 months really isnt that bad. They do say that it can take up to 12 weeks to make a decision, so forget about watching your status checkers for a while.

Got the same one this morning. COA info means nothing without scholly info!

I would just like an admission decision. Nearly nine weeks "Under Review." I am beginning to think that this means "Lost behind the filing cabinet."

Hopefully, you receive admissions to Penn State Law School.

believe me I'm wondering about that as well, I literally applied on the first day applications became available, wrote a (good) why PSU essay, have #'s above both 75 percentiles and still haven't heard anything.

Called and asked and was told that "applications are reviewed in the order they were received but that admissions are not necessarily made in that order". Totally frustrating. I've already been accepted into a number of higher ranked schools, but I really like Penn State and would love to go there.

What about Penn State do you like so much? Just curious.
