It's in the checklist. One of the options is to view your award letter. It's not on the financial aid portal for some reason.

I don't see one either, nor a place for one. I guess that means we did not get one? :( that is no fun, I guess I won't be able to attend USC.

edit: I only have a decision letter. Maybe there is still hope, since it says scholarship information will follow shortly( although it seems ot be longer than shortly) in a separate cover.

New here.

Just went from FR to DF this afternoon. Stats are 3.6X and 164. Looks like most of us who got DF today are borderline/below median. Do decisions vary that are sent out same day? If not, it's not looking too hopeful...

I just went looking through my old emails and found this tidbit:

"Thank you for submitting your electronic application to USC Law School.

Your application is now complete. Once the Admissions Committee begins the review process and a decision is made, we will notify you via postal mail. We cannot release decisions over the phone or by email."

So yup, looks like another few days of torture while USPS delivers the (good/bad/less bad) news to our mailboxes.

Yeah, and then a letter in the mail a few days later.

With not a lot of time before the April 15th deadline, I hate to break bad news, but I'm assuming any decisions made w/o email are going to be WL or Deny. At least I would assume they'd want acceptances to go out via email/quickly. as we saw before, emails are going out despite usc saying they are not.

Looking at past posts, waitlisters have their status changed to 'waitlisted' rather than decision finalized and then get an email...

i guess we'll find out in a couple of days.

I got waitlisted last year and don't remember receiving an email. Maybe I did, but I definitely recall getting a letter in the mail with instructions for the wait list portal. Then again, last year I submitted my application in January and took the February LSAT, so I didn't get that letter until the end of May.

On the contrary I just got an email from the Dean saying she hoped to have a decision for me in a week or so :shock:
