complete since 12/5 here
Got the email and was relieved when they were kind enough to be forthcoming in the subject bar. Some schools have been more cryptic :twisted:

I emailed them asking. Also they sent "Happy Holidays" email and they are out of the office until next year.

Nope. I emailed before the holidays and they said they will start reviewing for scholarships in Jan.

Ive been complete and waiting on review for months. Not sure if it means anything but it seems like prior acceptances went from complete to decision, never into review.

Mine says:

"Thank you for applying to the Georgia State University College of Law. Your application is currently INCOMPLETE and is in need of your immediate attention. Please review the applicant document checklist below for pending items."

I applied a long time ago, and when I called they said they had not yet received my Dec LSAT score. Should they have gotten that yet?

This is what it says on my file on LSAC.

Status: Sent
Requested: 11/15/2011
First Time Report Sent: 11/15/2011
Updated Report Sent: 01/05/2012
Reason: Score


So I know the score has been sent, I guess the admissions office just hasn't seen it yet.

Hey everyone,

I called today after receiving my admissions packet (which was just a stack of papers folded into an envelope, nothing fancy) to ask about scholarship info. The lady at admissions told me that candidates are automatically considered for merit scholarships when they apply so if you are selected for a scholarship that should be in the admit letter. I asked her how GSU is about negotiating, and she said since they're ranked one of the best value law schools, a state school, etc etc that they don't have a very big amount of scholarship money but that I could write or call the director, Dr. Cheryl Jester George if I thought I should be considered for a scholarship. I know GSU is already a good value at the in-state rate, but I've been accepted to UGA with a scholarship and have received a full ride offer from St. John's in NY (still wating on Miami and Tulane for scholarship info), and I'm still waiting to hear from 10 or so schools, a good amount of which I expect to receive some sort of scholarship. Do you think they'd be willing to negotiate considering all that? Thanks and good luck to everyone!

Actually, she just called me back to say that the committee that decides scholarships hasn't met yet since only the first wave of decisions have gone out and they should be meeting in a couple of weeks. She said they decide all that stuff after having a better idea of what the class size is going to be, so we should expect scholly info closer to spring.
