Worked with tons of people from here this summer, and they were all great. IMO this is one of the best T2s out there.

I think it depends on when you are applying. If you are applying for early decision then the decision may come as early as December but if you are not applying for their early decision option, then you may have to wait a little longer.

I am hoping to do early decision. I have everything ready for the most part except the LSAT.

Are you applying?

Please do not apply ED to a school like this. Even if it's your number one choice, get into some peer or ideally better schools, negotiate those scholarships up, and bring your cost of attendance down at your target school.

I would agree, especially since you are a female URM.

Yes, I submitted my application a couple days ago and haven't heard anything from them. I didn't apply for the early decision program though. I figured I would get an email saying they had received it and give me a username and password to be able to check the status. I submitted my application to SLU on a Sunday and was emailed and received a phone call the very next day so I didn't know what normal was for this.

Ok, as if they heard me. I just received an email saying they had received my application with a username and stuff.

no I haven't heard anything from them since. It is supposed to say when your file is being reviewed and mine hasen't said that yet.

well according to the status checker my application has not even gone under review yet. I thought for sure they would have started last November, early December

Just spoke with the admissions office today - apparently the "first round" of early decision acceptance/denial/waitlist letters goes out tomorrow. She stated there is another batch that will be going out closer to the end of the month as well.

Is there any indication as to what the difference between the first batch vs. second batch of letters consists of? (i.e. is the first batch acceptence letters while the second batch consists of denials/waitlists? Or is it just the individuals who applied closer to the beginning of the early decision cycle versus the end of it?) Any inside information in that regard would be greatly appreciated!

Maybe they're dealing with the ED people first before RD, because my had been under review for almost three weeks before it said Decision sent yesterday.

That's a good question. To be honest, I have no idea, but I heard that they don't really look at applications according to when you turned it in, but by this GPA/LSAT combo index. As for your statement about the first batch being acceptance and the second batch being denials/waitlists, I am not entirely sure. It could be. I'll let u know though. I checked my status check yesterday and it said "Decision letter sent." It also said "e-mail decision sent as well."

Wardenv did you apply ED or RD?

My status has been changed to "Decision letter sent" -- although, I am yet to receive an e-mail regarding the decision.

However, a seat deposit that is due by February 1, 2013 was added to my fee list, so I think I can safely take that as a good sign! :D

Yep Wardenv! That's what showed up on mine. Before my email came, my program time switched from "Either" to "Full time" and then a fee showed up that said it was due on Feb.

Pretty sure u got in! Hope to hear more from you soon!
