Whoa breathe. Mine isn't working either.

Maybe it's related to the weird LSAC redirect:
http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/v ... 5&t=205033


I just noticed the redirect. Weird.


I was checking on my Kindle Fire, and got that error message. I went to use my boyfriend's lap top and it didn't work on that either. I was using Google Chrome as my browser, however. When I tried again with (shudder) Internet Explorer, it actually worked. I'm not sure if this is coincidental though, because I didn't try again immediately after.

How many times are statuses usually updated prior to a decision being rendered?

Again, sorry to post this while people are waiting to see if they got in. I know it's not the nicest thing to do.


Yep, it'll show up under the notifications/mail/whatever it's called box on the left as "scholarship decision mailed" or words to that effect. Sorry for the inexactness of this answer, but the status checker is down for me currently, haha

All admissions decisions, including acceptances, are sent via e-mail.

Question for all: Do we know if all Mordecai Scholars have been selected or is the process still ongoing?

I don't think we know but I'm guessing its over unless they get some stellar new applicants (assuming their app is even open).

I think a better question is did you actually get rejected by American University? WTF??!

Hahaha, yes I did. I had all my materials ready to go for American because I was positive I was going to bomb the LSAT. Fortunately that wasn't the case. I still sent in the app though. I think I was rejected for YP purposes since they tend to have very strong YP tendencies. What can you do?

I got the same email. Tough to say I suppose. I would imagine they'll mail the rest out next week for the most part, maybe a few the week after?

I wonder if they would be opposed to emailing me the information, as I'm leaving the country for a bit.

Same. I'll be gone until the middle of May. I emailed and asked, but haven't heard back yet.

I didn't get this email. Did it say you were missing documents or something? Just curious if all of their scholly decisions are going to be delayed or if it was a select category of students who have particular circumstances or missing docs or something?

Here you go, darlings:

Thank you again for submitting your Duke Law Scholarship Application. I'm writing with an update to the timeline for your scholarship decision.

The Law School Admission Council has experienced an unanticipated service interruption, which meant our office has been unable to access any of LSAC's services -- including your application for admission -- for several days this week. This has delayed the completion of a full review of your scholarship application, and it's likely that your decision will not be available by the date we originally estimated in our previous correspondence.

Please accept my apologies for this delay, and rest assured that we are working hard to complete our review of your application as quickly as we can. Again, I appreciate your interest in Duke Law!
