The turnaround time on emails/applications is so bad that it's either ineptness or intentional. My situation: accepted early March and told I would get scholly info the next week and it took a month. Emailed them back immediately after I received it asking if they'd match or try to compete with U of A's offer and they said they'd get back over the weekend. I'm still waiting.
If it's intentional, I don't understand enough about the rules of the game they are playing to tell you why. My guess, having gone to ASU for UG, is that they are inept. I'm biased, though. In any case, I'll probably end up at U of A because they have been the complete opposite--prompt, helpful, understanding. I doubt I'm the only one.
Its not them being inept. All these schools are playing the same game. Applications are down and they are trying to all get the same students while trying to protect their yield and students are playing the same game they always have...trying to get more money. they are trying to decide whether to lower GPA/LSAT numbers and maybe damage there future rank or just have a smaller class. And since schools keep waiting to inform students, they keep waiting to hear before they make a decision and round and round it goes. I think a lot of schools really underestimated how many applications there would be this cycle. I have other schools that I haven't heard a peep from and I know its the same for others.
People have been saying the same things about Stanford,UNLV, New Mexico as well as UCLA.
Its just a big game of who will blink first.
