sent last application on 12/3

applied to 17

heard from 7
in at 6 ( 3 with scholarships)
WL at 1

Withdrew before hearing a decision from 4
If I dont hear from the rest by mid february- will be withdrawing appliactions ( these are my reaches, and it will be a long shot that I attend them anyways)

Looking back, I should have taken some time to make a list, rank and weigh each school. and only apply to 10 or so. Even though I got a lot of fee waivers ( why I applied to so many) I could have saved $84, plus my time and the schools time.

What is up with every school being behind schedule this year? Is a later December LSAT really that big of a deal???

It's getting a bit crazy with the waiting, but I'm a Dec applicant. I can't imagine how it is for people in Sept/Oct who are still pending at a lot of schools.

+1. I have heard from half, but I think schools aren't concerned that we have little time to decide where we will be living once we have heard from all of them. Though I put my apps in in November, I think the wait for still pending Sep/Oct candidates is absurd. They put their apps in early to know early. The schools could at least give a decision to those people first.

I wish you were on UVA's adcomm. They apparently do not subscribe to this way of thinking.

I'm curious to know why it takes so long as well. Does the quality of applicants decline/improve over time ? Is the applicant pool who submits in November or December noticeably different from Sep/October? Why am I under review at schools that I'm a toss up but sitting at complete at schools where i'm at 90-100 % according to LSAC?

I applied to 10, all in early December.

I have heard back from ONE, albeit with a very large scholarship.

NADA from the other 9. *banging head into wall*

It is so frustrating! I applied in November last year and had multiple acceptances/waitlists/rejections by now. This year, I applied to lower ranked schools in September and just got my first decision yesterday!

Applied to 26
Heard from 0 (five decisions in the mail)

My problem was applying before receiving my LSAT score. My actual score was 6 points higher than my practice test so I had to apply to new places to readjust my strategy. Plus getting a good scholarship is more important to me than location.

I don't feel bad for applying to the fee waiver schools cause they emailed me and asked me to apply. If they didn't want people applying on a whim, then they wouldn't spam us with emails.

I applied to 36 schools last week--have a unique background and figured, go big or go home. Actually I'm just really unsure how my app will perceived--it's unusual.

Have had 1 admit so far, which I am thrilled about. Should hear from 3 more schools in the next two weeks. Who knows how long the rest will take (ok, probably not longer than 2 months).
