So for the people who've been requested for a phone interview, have you guys heard back from the school already?

I was just called by admin's office, i think by Eamon? But anyway, idk if that was the interview or not. He asked what my interest was in ND Law, why i wanted ND over my other choices and how committed i would be if extended an offer. He did say the decisions will be rolling out very fast as they want to firm up their class over the next 2 weeks. Not sure if this was a positive call or not, but hopefully it is.

I received a similar phone call a couple of weeks ago and was offered admission a day or two later.

I asked on the phone about my chance for scholarship and they said my chances in RD were 0 so the chances here are likely the same.

Was just accepted off the waitlist today with $12000 in scholly money. I'm planning on asking for a little more to compete with offers from peer schools. I was called yesterday to "chat" about my level of interest and was admitted today. Ill keep you all posted on my decision. Good luck to you all! I'm thoroughly excited!

Just got in off the waitlist today. I'm excited about it, but in all likelihood I'd have to pay sticker and am hesitant about doing so. I was planning on attending UIUC for less than half of ND at sticker...What do you guys think? Is ND worth sticker?

It was kind of weird. So because this weekend was Memorial Day, Melissa was unable to get back to me ahead of my decision deadline. That being said, I made the trip up here to ND yesterday and in speaking with her in person today she said once all the seats are set they can re-evaluate files for additional money. Not exactly reassuring but at least it wasn't an outright no.

I just got in off the waitlist today with $25,000 in scholarships. Unfortunately, I have already decided to retake and as I am scoring well enough to risk giving it all up I am going to have to turn them down. They want a decision in two days and I won't have even taken the LSAT by then. Anyway, I hope this frees up some money and a spot for the rest of you.

Good luck everyone.

accept the offer and withdraw if you get a higher score. that way if you get a lower score you have the bird in the hand already

So I'm sure this is a little late but in my visit to NDLS around June 1, the admissions office told me that the class was essentially filled. They said maybe 1 or 2 spots will open up, but it's not likely. I don't mean to dash anyone's hopes, just thought I should provide as much info as I could.

Hopefully they have more than 2 seats available.

Well they did just send out the email yesterday saying they anticipate making a few select offers starting next week.

I'd have to assume they have at least 2-5 seats, but idk.

Just checked mine and it's still receiving waitlist consideration. Maybe good news is coming your way?

Just got the acceptance email. I have a big decision to make. Need to notify them by Monday and deposit by next friday. Between work and WL at Michigan (ten decisions over the next 2 weeks) it's a tough decision - Notre Dame has been a dream since i was very young.

Well got off the WL last Thursday with $28k/yr but turned it down on Monday as the COA was still too high to justify ND over my other option BU.

Hello TLS'ers! Congrats to those who made it in off the wait list! Make sure to search for NDLS class of 2016 on FB and join the group (the link is in this feed). We have a couple of pre-orientation events planned including a trip to watch a Cubs game at Wrigley! Good luck to those still waiting!
