Just got my October LSAT and ready to go. Hoping to fire out my app in mid-November. How quickly can I expect a turnaround? ND is definitely a top choice for me.

Decision Made for me as well. 163/3.9, I can't imagine i'd be a auto-in, out or waitlist though since im in the 25-75 LSAT and 75% gpa.

Did you get your decision by email or snail mail?

3.49/167, finishing my app before the end of next week.

Am I looking at the WL or in? Any $$$?

I'm particularly interested in their study abroad opportunities and Fed Clerkships.

Me too. :cry: Looks like I'll get rejection or waitlisted.
Also got 10/30 decision made but I'm still waiting for the "international" snail mail..
I think I have to wait one or two more weeks.

Hm. Well... There goes my investigatory journalism.

Sorry about the rejection, but best of luck on the rest.

Sorry :( very weird about the numbers.. maybe it means they never even considered me. They were just like "hahaha, Decision Made" and left it at 0.00 due.

My mail is horrible and I live stateside. I literally got all my birthday cards two weeks late. It is going to make for a very stressful cycle, I'm sure. I'm surprised that the 10/30 mix is rejections and acceptances alike so far. Anyone received a WL?


As for my numbers, I'm between/at 25th and median for both :(

I'm guessing the acceptance comes in a package? Or is it a letter?

Has anyone else heard back? I am extremely surprised that 1) a decision was made this early. 2) didn't get waitlisted. 3) Got any money at all.

Maybe its a product of a weak cycle because of less LSAT takers?

It game in a package with a letter, ND law packet, car decal and others.

There have been 4 decisions reported on LSN- 3 acceptances and 1 rejection. I know me and one other person on here have decisions we don't know yet because our mail is slowwww (although I can pretty safely guestimate a rejection for me). And you shouldn't be surprised!! Your GPA is stellar!

I did. Everything I've read tells me it's worth the time if you're borderline/really want to go to Notre Dame.
