Let this be a place for those who applied very late to post decisions or a lack thereof.

Congrats on the Scholly!!!

ITs not really that late in the cycle if you have everything complete. The december test was released later this year, so decisions will be later as a result. IF you are complete and getting ready for review, you are right on time. If you are starting the applicatin process- yes its late.( LORS can be brutally slow in getting turned in).

best of luck to all. May you get into your school of your dreams!

In at W&L, Georgia, and waiting on 14 other schools. This waiting thing sucks, but surprised for some of the quick responds considering when I applied.

In @ W&L, WL @ UMN, 18 more to go.

Edit: While we may think late December, early January is late because of the TLS effect, my gut tells me the vast majority of applicants figure this is still pretty early. Though if my cycle doesn't go as well as I want it to I may just reapply next year the day apps are available.

I just met someone who hasn't done their applications yet...

I'm not in the same boat as you guys, but I wish you the best regarding your applications!

I know someone who hasn't thought about what to write their PS about. Also, they're insisting on applying this cycle. I can't say it's going to go well.

In at W&M, W&L, GA State; WL at Vandy, and a ton more to go. Honestly, it's been hard enough this late in the game, so I cannot imagine people who think they are going this cycle and haven't already applied are going to manage...

Wow...I felt bad enough for submitting the day my December LSAT results came in, but I can't imagine people who haven't even thought about their PS yet.

Submitted on Christmas day for most of my 19 schools.

Dinged at W&L (a reach), but in Tulsa, OCU, Miami, and Pacific (McGeorge) all with scholly. They mostly are safeties, but it's still nice to have some responses back. Plenty are under review, so I definitely check statuses several times per day.

Good luck other late appliers!

Submitted all of my applications between January 6th and 8th.

So far, I'm 4/4 on acceptances. Another decision letter has been mailed, so hopefully I'll be 5/5 tomorrow when I check my mailbox.

I submitted most of my apps on the 1/11, a few on 1/12, and all by 1/14. I've applied to 36 schools. Have only heard back from Hofstra (acceptance), but the rest seem to be moving into the final stages of review.

Wow 36 schools. Congrats on the acceptance and good luck on the rest. I do have a feeling most are moving to the final stages so hopefully good news soon.

I'm hoping it's good luck for me--that's the day I applied to Iowa, and by coincidence, I applied at exactly 11:11am.

(24 schools mostly from 1/5-1/7, 2 acceptances, 22 waiting.)

Love this thread. Applied to most of my schools on 1/11, then a few as I received fee waivers later that week. Accepted @ W&L and Brooklyn, waiting on the other dozen or so. Complete at about half, UR at about half, and then there's Cornell. Oh, Cornell.
