What Does This Mean?

Postby fdr123 » Wed Mar 16, 2011 5:21 pm

For all of you who have been rejected or accepted from law schools, what does it mean when the school says that they have sent out decision by email but you have not got received it yet. The two schools that I got accepted too so far just said congratulations you have been accepted. This this mean i have been denied? or would it say denied on the decision status?

There is a delay sometimes between the "Decision Mailed" on the status checker and the actual e-mail decision. Of course, sometimes schools only use snail mail for the decision so that could explain the delay. But in my personal experience, I have seen "decision mailed" at 12 in the afternoon only to receive the acceptance e-mail at 4PM.
