Sorry to all those that got waitlisted. Notre Dame seems to be really tough this year.

Still nothing in the mail.
For anyone accepted, have your deposit numbers shown up on status checker or all they still missing/blank?

Decision made today. Applied 11/5, went complete 11/6, updates 11/19 and 12/03 and decision on 12/05.

I didn't think I would be this nervous as I am undoubtedly a ding.

My decision was made yesterday and I am super nervous about it! 170/3.76 but I didn't write a Why ND?, and I am discouraged by the people with pretty high numbers getting waitlisted! :?

Good luck...You can always write a LOCI if you are waitlisted.

I was rooting for you. But no shame in getting waitlisted. We'll laugh when you get Cornell 8) Fingers still crossed on that one.

Also have you started using Law School Status Check? Time saver :mrgreen:

anyone have an idea how much legacy has to play into their decisions? I am one, but my credentials also give me a solid chance. More curiosity than anything.

Good luck to anyone else applying!

Haha thanks, eav. I think it's clear that a retake and some post-college work experience are in order. Oh and good find. I downloaded it a few minutes ago. Is it legit (e.g. won't put down seat deposits at TTT if you add those to the school list)?

I can't take the credit. It's been posted on here for a while. In past cycles they had an android app. I looked for it but did not find it. I think you can also set it up to email/text you when you receive an update. Unfortunately, it doesn't have a few schools like Michigan but oh well. It has enough schools to be a huge time saver.

Also, don't rush the work experience and retake (although I am retaking in Feb and considering work experience) until you see how the rest of your cycle goes. Then decide. Def keep your options open though. Let me know how your TFA app process goes. I hear back from TFA in Jan 8)

My package was sent to my permanent address today and I had my mom open it-- in with $30,000 per year! I guess I was worried for nothing!

TFA would be awesome. It seems like a really fun job honestly. :P
As for the retake, it's more about proving to myself that I'm capable more than anything else. It hurts when you think you can do much better if you just spent a lot more time prepping.

In today. And as someone who did tfa, there are a lot of things I'd call that organization. Fun is not one of them.
