Checking in with a 3.6/168 and a pretty strong Why ND? essay. Went complete as of 11/18. I didn't have the 15 day clause in my waiver, and now I'm kind of freaked out about it.

How have people been fairing RD w/o the clause so far?

I didn't have the 15 days thing either and I was accepted 20 days after. Same LSAT as you, just a higher GPA

What is this 15 day clause people are talking about?

A few folks who got fee waivers also had a statement in the fee waiver email they received that they would get a decision within 15 days.

Do people just not read the threads? So many times I've seen people asking for stats or complete dates that have been previously posted -- multiple times -- in that same thread.

Sorry if you've already answered this, mooseman, but did you write Why ND?

I've been complete since the 14th. Do they go straight from complete to decision? Should I assume reject?

I got a postcard in the mail today thanking me for applying. How long did it take to get a decision after receiving the postcard? I'm just wondering if this means I'll get an answer soon or if it means absolutely nothing. Haha, getting really impatient here.

It was over a month for me after the postcard. Applied Oct 4, postcard end of October. Decision today. Sorry if thats not the news you were hoping for. Hopefully my experience was atypical.

This actually makes me feel better than just assuming they don't want me

ND is driving me nuts with the 'Decision Made 11/29'

I'm living in the UK, and I've been obsessively checking my mail since Saturday. I keep telling myself that today is the day...but really, TODAY is the day.

Gah

I guess I was right in saying today was the day!

Just got in by email. 167/3.72, fee waiver. Submitted 10/23, decision made 11/29.

Good luck to everyone who's still waiting to hear!

If you want to go, I'd say definitely send the essay in now and see what happens.
