Almost every law school that gives sudden acceptance calls will do it during working hours because that is when they are working too. Calling you to tell you you're in is their job, not their after-work hobby.
Well if you work in the east, then you may be out of work when you get the call given the 3 hour time difference.
Of course. They are calling during their working hours (Pacific time), so you might get a call as late as 8:00am or 9:00pm (I think some people were saying they've received them this late) if you are are on the East Coast. I am still hoping to hear something from Berkeley, but when I got the call from UCLA it was around 3:00pm in the afternoon, and I live on the East Coast, so you should be prepared to pick up that phone whenever & wherever you are.
In the office? Phone. At the gym? Phone. Showering? Phone (in OtterBox case).
Hmmm, I don't know if that's true. My friend got accepted to Yale after business hours, and we assumed it was because his app said he had a full time job.
