I have a feeling UO will beat Lewis & Clark to a decision, even though I've been complete at L&C for over 16 weeks and they've been handing out decisions for 5 weeks. Rolling admissions there is a joke.


My application complete email from UO said that they wouldn't start reviewing until February...

Just got an email from University of Oregon inviting me to apply and giving me an application fee waiver... I applied in September, but without a fee waiver. Anyone think they'll refund app fee?

I just called and the admissions person said to reply to the email and they'll decide what to do (so she successfully skirted my question, but I responded and hope to get a refund). I included my UO id #.

Just got the same email...not a good sign that they aren't checking who has already applied...

Yeah...Got their apology email, too. It seems that they understand they blew it, but still lame. Just admit me or reject me already...

It is. I was lucky, I got a fee waiver from them through a law fair.

Hell, I got a fee waiver by asking for one to American. I don't think they were being very stingy about it.

Looks like they have readied the admitted students portion of their website http://lawadmissions.uoregon.edu/admitted/ - hopefully the acceptances will start rolling out very soon.

I sent my app in months ago and have heard nothing. I am not sure who is worse, Oregon, Pitt, or Richmond.

According to their website, decisions start in February through 31 May. I too sent my app in very early, but this just seems to be U of O's M.O. Hang in there and try and distract yourselves. Nothing we can do to make the process faster unfortunately.

A lot of schools said that in their emails, but it seems like Oregon is the one school that actually lives by it.

I haven't received anything from them via mail or email, however I'm a previous UofO undergrad and now when I access my duckweb account it's got all the information for law students, registration, etc.(in other words, all the stuff I previously saw for undergrad classes as far as registration and such, now the info for law students is there as well, and it never was before) I'm thinking this is a positive, lol, but have no idea. I think it's sort of odd, too, because if they have admitted people, why aren't they saying anything? Curious...

Oregon doesn't give out a lot of money because they believe their tuition is undervalued. 10K is the most i've seen, aside from full rides for fellowships. they expect you to apply for a lot of private scholarships and outside money.

How do later appications usually get looked at? Do they do it in waves or as they come in?

I applied two weeks ago after getting denied at Lewis and Clark.
