I have been in this "hold" category since 12/27/2011 and have heard nothing from them since. I did contact someone (whom I had communicated with prior) from their admissions office toward the end of January to provide them with an updated resume and a LOCI (letter of continued interest), but my conversation with him was brief and to the point. He advised that they would begin "re-reviewing" these applications in February...which is the only thing the letter from December had alluded to.

While they say they will "begin" their "re-review" in February, I personally don't think that means much. I feel like they will treat our group very similarly to how they would treat a standard waitlist (i.e. they may begin looking at our applications again at some point during this month, but the decisions they send out to us could literally come at *any* time...).

I don't want to be pessimistic, but my experience with law school applications over the past several months is that the admissions offices all work at their own pace...reviewing the applications in an order that is based on the strength in the applicant's #'s (BOTH GPA and LSAT). This is frustrating for a "splitter" like myself who has a solid LSAT score, strong "softs", but a lower than average GPA. It seems that while the lower-than-average GPA may not preclude me from admission to many schools...it will ABSOLUTELY delay the admissions offices' decisions on my file.

Are you in a similar boat as a "splitter"? Just curious. UA is the only school who placed me on any type of "hold"... There are 2 other schools to which I've applied that have not even made a peep since receiving my application at the beginning of November. Best of luck to everyone on here who has yet to receive a decision - and of course, I wish the best of luck to all of those who are in a similar situation to my won with UA and any other schools of interest.


Hopefully we hear something SOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Waiting for decisions is by far the most difficult step in the process to becoming a law school student. However, let's all hope that the time they take is to diligently review all of the files so that they select the best fits for their schools... :?

Splitter here. Schools tend to sit on our files for a while. I've been under review at several schools for quite a while. USD--4 months. UofA--over a month.

Talked to admissions. They said they'd be sending out letters either tomorrow or next week. Relieves a little stress from this weekend.

Called Admissions this morning. They said the packets would "hopefully go out sometime this week."

Letters? Are you still in evaluation or has a decision been rendered?

Letters, packets, mailings, whatever. I told them my status changed to "Decision Rendered," and they told me either "Tomorrow" which would have been last friday "but definitely by next week" which is this week. I'm not holding my breath. Decided in the mean time I'd go check out UNLV, at least I've had no trouble getting info from their admissions office.

Has anyone in the early decision waitlist/hold group heard anything since the letter in December?

Same situation as the three above posters. Haven't heard anything since the December "early program WL" with the promise that they would "start re-reviewing these apps in February" - I don't think the letter committed them to giving us a decision in Feb - just that they'd begin looking at them again to see how they held up in the committee's eye's. To me, it seems more like a "HOLD" category than a WL, but we'll see how they treat us in this group. I sent them a LOCI back in January, a few weeks after the letter they'd sent me, and that was responded to nicely. Otherwise, I've been in the same position, just backing off and hoping to hear something (anything) from them SOON! Best of luck to all the others in this group & congrats to all who have been accepted thus far!

That's great that you got a response at least! Did you send your LOCI via email or snail mail? Thinking about calling admissions to see if they can give any more of a time frame...

I sent my LOCI via snail mail, thinking that at the very least, my effort to send a hard copy would be seen in better light than sending it electronically via e-mail. If you're going to send one, I'd recommend sending it through snail mail, too.

I would love to know more of a time frame, and have contemplated calling the admissions office, but am hesitant to do so as I do not want to give them any reason to think negatively about me. If you do call them, and they give you an estimate, please do share!

Good luck with everything on all of your applications!

Mailings doesn't show anything for me, but my requirements list changed to show first and second seat deposits, transcripts, etc... So, it looks like I got in, which isn't a huge surprise, but I really wish they'd send the damn packet so I can see about scholarship info.

Alas, I did not get in, which did not really surprise me. I have to admit that I am a little disappointed, however. Good luck, everyone!

For any AZ residents:

How long after it said 'Decision Letter Mailed' did it take to receive your letter?

Alright. Is anyone else in the early-decision hold category getting antsy? I understand that they're processing lots of applications, but when they said they'd begin re-reviewing early applicants in the beginning of Feb, I would think someone on here would've seen some kind of movement by the END of February. They know it's getting close to seat deposit time at other schools, wish they would hurry up.

Comm. review: 1/31/12
Decision rend.: 2/22/12
Letter mailed: 2/27/12 (this past Monday)
Received: 2/29/12 (today)

^ Muchas gracias!

I expect I'll receive mine either today or tomorrow then (letter was mailed 2/27).

I haven't had any real changes on my status checker either (and I'm assuming auto-admit)
