wait-listed, but that was expected as a splitter. I'm happy with the timeliness of the response though:

submitted 12/13
complete 12/15
decision made 1/3

I'm really hoping to get off the wait-list though, loyola is one of my top choices (fingers crossed!)

In via email yesterday. Super fast turn around for me. I didn't go complete until last week, though I applied on Dec. 21 (a lag I attribute to the holidays).

Did everyone's email say scholarship info goes out in February, or was that just to some of us?

My e-mail said this: "Your official letter of acceptance will be mailed to you later this month, along with an information packet which will outline your next steps."

Does that mean no scholarship????

Never mind, just reread the e-mail. It does say that.

In the same boat. I'll be very interested if CK accepts me and Loyola waitlisted.

Also - if you are admitted via waitlist, are your prospects for scholly $$ pretty low?

I also was wait-listed at Loyola. However, I got into CKent with $25,000/yr. So it's definitely possible.

I think my disparity was related to drinking tickets though.

Submitted: 1/6/13
Complete: 1/8/13
Decision: Accepted 1/16/13

162/2.75

Decent softs with a unique family situation. I think my diversity statement is pretty strong, but my personal statement is probably so-so. I have multiple legal internships on my resume, and I can't really say how good my LORs are. I haven't seen them or anybody else's to really know what a good LOR looks like.

Email says scholarship info comes in February.

It seems like last year at other schools folks off the waitlist were getting a fair shake because schools really needed to fill up their classes. That's purely anecdotal though, and I think it was at mostly T1/T14 schools. There's a shot though!

Checking in (as a side note, this forum is a fantastic outlet for all the wonderful anxiety that goes along with this process. Thanks everyone!).

Submitted 1/14/13
Complete 1/15/13 (Early Application deadline)

164/3.6 and live/work across the street from the law school. Hoping to hear really soon, although they have a reasonable 4 week guarantee anyway.

Purely based on numbers and in general how fast Loyola has been, I'd be surprised if you didn't hear much sooner than 4 weeks

I was accepted in the first pool of people, high gpa and LSAT for the school, and I have not heard anything. Mid February is normal to hear from them, if I remember correctly.

Been in for a while, but just had a status update... looks like the acceptance info (hoping scholly along with it) was just mailed.
