LOL, good thing you reached out to them. Color me unimpressed with how IUB has conducted itself during the applications process...

What in review date is everyone sitting at?

For those that were accepted, what happened with your status checker?

+1 and then some...after getting nothing but silence for 3 months from them, I just got an email requesting additional info about moving violations (I think someone else mentioned this earlier too). If a couple speeding tickets keep me out I don't want to be there anyway.

My review date seemed to be kind of random, but when I got accepted my status checker said 'decision mailed' and had the date and 'admit packet' sent under mailings.

Anyone else get a nice handwritten note? It sort of makes up for the long delay!

I received a handwritten notes as well. I'm still not sure if it makes up for the horrible admissions process.

Unless you have auto-admit numbers, I think this is a fair assumption for all of the schools this cycle. I wasn't put into review until I sent an email asking if everything on my application was ok to move forward. I don't know if that did it (I sincerely was asking if everything was ok and not trying to push the process - haha) but I went into review recently too. That doesn't mean I expect an acceptance but at least I know it's moving along, whether pro or con.

I sent my scholly negotiation letter last night and got a note from Compton this morning saying he sent it to the Adcomm. At least he's fast.

Which e-mail did you send it to? Compton's specific e-mail address or the general admissions e-mail? I sent an e-mail off about two weeks ago on a related topic, but have yet to hear from them.

Thanks and good luck...

I sent it to both. Did you hear anything back from Compton? Hopefully the Adcomm will get back to me in a reasonable manner, but it's not nearly as stressful as waiting on admission. How much did you get originally/do you have other offers?

I sent it only to Compton. It did not have to deal with the scholarship package's amount, more so with the distribution of the scholarship (sorry for the vagueness).

Accepted via email w/ $30k scholarship (total), no stips. I'm very happy to get in (!), but I was hoping for more money since I am above one 75% and above the other median. I'm curious to see how other TLSer's negotiations go.

First of all, congrats!

Secondly, aren't a 164/3.6? That's below both medians from last year. You may be using the class of 2013 as your point of reference. Class of 2014 was 166/3.75 medians.

173/3.23, in with 30K. Will be withdrawing. I mainly applied due to the huge 120K that a lot of people got last year.

I used the numbers on LSAC, which must be the class of 2013 numbers. But thank you!

I feel your pain. It's amazing the difference a few months can make.

This makes no sense - The Residency Affidavit is optional. I'm in-state, but don't recall submitting one. Not cool.
