I also have decision finalized. I'm sure it's good news! They won't reject us all this early. Website says that if it was a wait list it would say waitlist in the status checker already. All decisions sent by snail mail.

Does anyone know...do they send scholarship offers with their decision or does that come later?

I'm "Decision finalized" too. So, everyone think we'll have to wait a few days for our decision? Receiving it on Christmas/Christmas Eve would be a nice touch, though, eh?


To your question, just took a glance at last year's thread, user said:

user wrote:Got my packet yesterday, no scholarship offer (gpa and lsat above 75 percentiles). Is there any hope for it coming later?

EDIT: Nevermind...did some research and I think merit scholarships need to be applied for...

Accepted!

Complete 11/15ish
1st read 12/5
2nd read 12/10
Decision Finalized 12/19

Nothing in the mail, but received an email with information about the admitted student portal today. The email says that the "formal admit package" will be in the mail after the 1st of the year.

Same! (167/3.84)

I wish they gave us scholarship info with the acceptance letters, but I'm really happy just to hear back this soon.

Were those of you accepted on final review or had you reached decision rendered?

I've been on Committee 2nd review since 12/10.

Actually, I'm pretty sure I was still on "2nd review" when I checked earlier today. If it moved to "final review" it must have been very brief.

Complete 11/5, nothing changed in a month and a half; over 75th percentile lsat here, so I don't think it could be a terrible sign... keep your heads up.

Are you just referring to last year's LSN applicants or... ?

Oh, yeah, I mean I just wish I had a concrete figure, but I appreciate you looking out.

Looks like it's probably going to be between USC and UCLA for me. This should be interesting.
