Hofstra Law Early Decision

Postby umarzulqarnain » Mon Nov 28, 2011 11:14 am

Hey Everyone
I was just wondering if anyone else on here applied for early admission at Hofstra this year.
If so, have any of you received a response?

The wait is killing me!

They're pretty slow with applications, by the time they told me my application had been received (a month later) I had already gotten an acceptance from Villanova. But I'm assuming that if you EA they at least give you a date of when your decision will be ready by.

They're on the disorganized side in terms of admissions, at least comparing to the schools I've dealt with.

I received my status checker info last week (11/23). When i logged on, the status said "File with Admissions Committee" while the current status date was 11/21. Odd that i received status checker info two days after the status checker's current status date. But my numbers are definitely weak so I shouldn't really be complaining.

The same thing happened to me, though my numbers are above median for Hofstra (and I'm regular decision)

I doubt it. I don't think he would create an account and wait 2 months to start a flame.

I emailed them on the 22nd saying I hadn't received my status checker login yet and they sent it the next day.
The dates are identical to yours.

I was just wondering if people have started receiving responses because I read somewhere on the hofstra site that they send replies as soon as two weeks after they receive the application.

I do not think this is true. I applied ED and I'm assuming you did as well. We will get our decisions by December 15th. Check last year's Hofstra thread (yes the same one where reasonable_man did some initially funny guidos jokes).

December 15th is not that bad. I've gotten few decisions so far but the cycle is long. Plus I'm going to be a reject at Hofstra anyways so I'm not really focusing all too much on Hofstra.

you've already gotten responses??
I only applied to Hofstra so far because it was the only school with non-binding early admission.
I figured regular admission responses take a little longer. I'm planning on sending them this coming weekend when I have some free time '_'. Should have done this earlier.

yeah but they're all T4 schools (I have a low LSAT score). At least I haven't been rejected yet, it would be embarassing if the lowest tier schools reject me.

I wonder if those of us who applied early would hear back at the same as early decision...

Yeah, they release all their EA decisions at roughly the same time in December. Their admissions office is incredibly helpful if you call or e-mail, so if you have any concerns, you should feel free to contact them.

So I guess you weren't ED? I'm regular as well, just checked and no update.

I was ED.

Hopefully I get into CUNY, that's my #1 school.

I think you should apply to Buffalo (i saw your thread in the other sub-forum). It's cheaper, and better school imho. If anything, Hofstra might have done you a favor.

Only thing I like about Hofstra is their undergraduate girls. Nothing else is really appealing.
