Are you sure you are posting in the right thread? Everyone I've talked to that has been admitted has not received an email, and the admissions office told me all decisions are made via USPS.

I got a welcome email after receiving the letter, so maybe they mixed the order up?

I am positive I am in the right thread and that I received both an e-mail acceptance and a mail acceptance. I was out of town and got the e-mail Friday. When I returned home Moday, I also had my packet (postmarked Feb. 23rd) in my mailbox.

Because I was out of town, I probably just got the e-mail first. (See above post.)

Has anyone that went complete in January received a decision, yet? I submitted in late November, but didn't go complete until January because they forgot to put my DD-214 in my file. Just wondering how long I'll have to wait for a decision.

LSN shows people who went complete in January already having been accepted.

Pretty sure that's mostly a numbers game. There are still a bunch of schools that I am below median at, applied in early december, still haven't heard when lots of others with higher numbers have. To me, it's good news because I haven't been WL/rejected.

I submitted at the start of November and wen't complete a week later. My GPA is above their 25th and my LSAT is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay above their 75th. The fact I haven't gotten a decision yet is really perplexing.

If there is anything I've learned with regards to law school admissions, it is that there is no rhyme or reason that applies to all situations.

Agreed. Mostly a numbers game is about the best I can figure to this point.

Hope you both get the good news from Oregon soon!

It's probably not lost. They're just RIDICULOUSLY slow. They received my app 9/9. Just got off the phone with them and they said my app is just now under review. Over 6 months... I really have to assume I'm denied with them taking that long.

Potentially not. They didn't start reviewing until February. I submitted 11/1 and didn't hear until 2/22, FWIW. From LSN, it looks like they haven't admitted many people yet, and there's no WL or rejections.
