There's only one rejection recorded on LSN.

It seems UH is moving slow and steady. I went complete 11/20, UR on 1/8, and still nada.


yeah they're definitely taking it slower than usual. I submitted my stuff and went complete by their ED deadline, went in review 12/4 and have been in review ever since.

Edit: the one rejection on LSN is technically for the last cycle, so based on LSN there still have not been rejections. either that or people haven't updated, which seems unlikely.

Good to know I'm not the only one in review for so long. :)

In!

Via status checker.

First acceptance. There's a bottle of champagne somewhere close with my name on it.


Edit: Also, you know, should I expect an email/call follow-up to confirm this? It doesn't feel real yet.

This makes me feel alright about my sporadic status checking every day...

Nba, when did you go complete?

Me too, me too.

Complete 1/16ish, 164/3.6. Would really like an email/call though; this feels very impersonal. Can't complain however.

I wasn't very good about checking the status-checker so I don't know what the delay time is before the e-mail, but I received mine 2 1/2 weeks after applying so the delay couldn't have been too long.

Also I love how they give you financial info in the e-mail so you don't have to wait an extra week for snail mail.

The financial info wasn't the norm for the earlier admits. I have been waiting since the 22nd to get my snail mail letter from them after my negotiations.

Hey y'all, another 1L here. Happy to answer any questions, or at least offer my perspective on stuff.

Everyone should attend ASD, or schedule a guided tour. You live in the law school your first year (I'm at my desk now), so you better make sure that you can handle the surroundings.

FWIW- UHLC originally waitlisted me, but eventually offered admission with a small scholarship. I had strong offers from some peer-ranked schools, and used those as leverage to negotiate a much more substantial scholarship from UHLC.

For anyone who got waitlisted: Don't lose hope! Send a letter of continued interest (and be polite to the admission staff), and keep negotiating to improve your other offers.

Gah, I'm predicting that I'll the WL hammer will drop on me this week... It seems they're putting a lot more emphasis on LSAT numbers with the recently admitted.

May I ask what your score is? Also, obviously, good luck!

Spoke with admissions today about scholarship negotiations. They wont match the offer from Tulane.

Just got off the phone and I have negotiated a 5k per year scholarship offer. Originally they weren't going to give me anything. Try and negotiate offers it works. Numbers were right around median.

I was accepted a week ago and still haven't received an email or any updates under mailings on the status checker. Has anyone recently admitted receive any contact at all?
