What does the acceptance packet look like? Is it just a letter, or a box?

Thanks so much! I applied to about half a dozen other schools (3 private, 3 public). Honestly though, I love the idea of going to NDLS - I'm excited to see how everything plays out!

I don't think my status changed at all. It went from complete to "Decision Mailed" within 2-3 weeks. Decisions are snail mail, they won't tell you via phone or email.

"Decision Made" today. Waiting for the snail mail; agree on the delay due to the holiday. Crossing my fingers. Have $600/$400 and due dates next to "seat deposits" on NDLS status page, for whatever that's worth.

-3.38/169, above average softs
-did NOT write "Why ND" essay

Go 'Cats!

I think some people were saying that the numbers show up if you've been accepted...but don't quote me on that. Hope you're in!

166/3.75, FWIW. At one median and above the other, figured I'd be in.

In terms of numbers, 3.8 GPA & 168 LSAT

Congrats, that's a hefty sum of money. Did you write a why ND essay?

I'm on the fence about applying. I haven't received a fee waiver and I've decided to leave it up to the hands of fate. If ND football beats USC this Saturday I'll pay the fee and apply.

I've heard here on TLS that a "Why ND?" style LOCI can end up going a long way.

Good luck going forward, my friend.

Yeah, I didn't write a Why ND, didn't think it'd be a deal breaker. Definitely will be writing an LOCI though.
