Congrats Man!!! With your GPA it isn't a surprise. I'm sure you have many more acceptances to come! Can you give your timeline for SC: Date submitted, complete, updates, etc.

Received 11.09
Complete email 11.19
In committee 11.15

No update yesterday. Anyone else in a similar boat? I submitted EA app on 11.08. The flurry of acceptances had me excitedly checking my status, but no change. Bummer.

I'm above their 75% LSAT and below the 25% GPA w/ good softs/strong undergrad.

For those interested in scholarships, I spoke with the admissions office and they told me scholarships should be sent out this week, if not early next week.

Woohoo! Thanks for finding this out. I almost forgot about scholarship money! I have been fostering stray kittens that we found a week ago, it's been a great distraction from any law school admissions related stuff. They take so much darn work!! Play, eat, poop, sleep. That is their life right now, I'm pretty jealous!

My acceptance letter was postmarked for the day prior to the day I received it. So I should get mine fairly soon as well. I'll post as soon as I get it :) Anyone is the bay area lookin for a kitten? ;) ;)

For those already accepted, how long did it take for you guys to get your first admission packet. Also for those admitted, have you received any scholarship information?

Admitted on a Friday, I received the acceptance letter the following Wednesday and I noticed it was postmarked for that Tuesday (I live close). It was just a generic letter with a couple sheets of paper for deposit information and events schedule.

The letter specifically says financial aid decisions will be made in the next few weeks (this was 2 weeks ago).

Don't worry, it will come to you!! :)

Thanks! You've been super helpful to me :-). Also, I was just joking about withdrawing my other apps so lurking adcoms should start sending in my other acceptances soon.

Has anyone who was admitted on 11.30 received their admissions packet yet? Also what should I be expecting, a regular sized letter, big envelope?

I wasn't admitted with the 11/30 batch but I'm pretty sure my acceptance came in a large flat envelope.

I emailed admissions and they said if I don't get it by this coming wednesday I should let them know. I live really close too. There was a delay in sending our batch's stuff out, so they sent them out on Thursday/Friday of this past week. The delay could be that they wanted to include scholly info. Wishful thinking!

Still on hold for second review. Emailed admissions and told me that I will hear back on the second review by the end of the year.
Crossing my fingers! I would love to live in Silicon Valley.
