I had to wait for my December test scores to see if some schools were worth it.

But I applied to 6 schools in October, and 11 more after I got my scores and fee waivers. In at W&L, W&M, Wake, Tulane, Hofstra, Rutgers Newark and Brooklyn. Held at Northwestern. Waiting on Cornell, Vandy, USC, UIUC, Indiana, Villanova, Wash U, GWU, Chicago, and BU.

Woot!

Good to see this thread and know that I am not alone! So far:

Accepted - GWU, W&L, Marquette, Arizona
rejected - Illinois
Held at UGA

-still waiting on about 10 more apps

However, I am starting to think I should wait for next cycle and retake, since I was able to get into GW and W&L, with an LSAT 8 pts lower than my PT avg and applying sOmewhat late in the cycle....hmmm (but do I want to do this again?)

thoughts?

Haha it's true that schools tend to let auto-admits in first...but Cornell isn't getting back to ANYONE who submitted in December/January til late March or April. They are the slowest of the slow.

I applied around mid-January, had to wait for my December LSAT like a lot of you guys/girls. So far I'm in at St. John's and NYLS both with some $$ (20k and 30k respectively), and WL at American. Off to the status checkers...

So at this point, I'm in at (mostly) all the schools where my numbers are above median. The speed of those schools surprised me. But for those schools on the borderline, us December completes will probably have a long and difficult road ahead.

I don't know if I can make it, the suspense/stress is killing me. :(

Yup :| It'd be one thing if I were seeing some kind of movement on my status checkers -- I could live with that. What's killing me are all those schools where I'm not even UR yet, with no prospect of being reviewed anytime in the near future. USC, UCLA and UC-Davis, I'm looking at you.
