I got an admit letter too. But isn't it CLS' policy to send the decision via postal mails? Why do I receive an email? I'm a little bit concerned. Is it because of Early Decision?


ED decisions come out via email.

Sorry to bother: Was everyone who was accepted an ED? Is there anyone who was a RD?

Thanks

So when do we think next round of ED decisions will come out? Next week? Doubtful for the rest of this week right?

Also, anyone notice that most ED decisions today were for ppl with complete dates close to 11/15?

I consider myself a recent graduate so I didn't read beyond the first two sentences of that section in the instructions. :(
Is it too late to submit the letter of recommendation now? It went complete on October 2.


Really???! Where did you see this? Shit I have only submitted professors LORs and am currently working full-time :/

Ohh ok, that reassures me. thanks!

Numbers: 174/3.61 and ED also. Nothing good or interesting in terms of softs. I submitted 11/14 and then there was an LoR that didn't get in until the 20th or so. Not sure when I got the complete email.


Congrats!!

I really did read theur application instructions... I guess I was distracted. I hope I will be fine, I guess I will ever since it is a bit blurry and they say to use your judgement.

I was admitted yesterday too! Totally threw the hail mary, was hoping that applying ED would be an advantage when I was deferred to RD. Was shaking when I read the email.

I was 168/3.6 from an ivy. Graduate degree + work experience. They must have liked my recs/personal statement. Hope this gives others in my position hope for the next rounds of ED/RD - turns out LSAT isn't everything :)

Lol, good question. I love when people are like "Oh yeah I'm a black Navy Seal Rhodes Scholar, does that matter?"

What's a urm? Either way, I'm white, not a fulbright/rhodes/etc. scholar. Does that help?

Impossible to say, Ndomukong, but last year it looks like people heard back first on the 5th and then not until the 12/13. It could be any time, though, the quote I got after calling Admissions a few days ago was just "throughout the month of December." They haven't said anything else official that might be more specific.

Edit: As far as completion dates close to 11/15, the sample size is only two. Two others got in but haven't specified a date. Wouldn't read too much into that yet.
