I wonder is it the common case for international applicants to wait longer?
My stat: in undergraduate, 170/AA, class ranking 7%, law major, with intern experience in biglaws, also their Lor
But that hasn't been a long wait at all. There are applicants who applied in September that are still awaiting responses from schools.
I heard back from a couple of schools in the timeframe you're talking about (two weeks after submission), but noone in the T14. You're not having to "wait longer" until we get to March or April, and the very top schools pretty much do as they please. I would expect you to hear in February from most schools at the earliest, but it totally depends on where you applied. January is quite late to apply. I feel bad for those who applied in September but haven't heard
I'm also interested in where you went to school if you got AA with a top 7% class rank. This aspect of transcript evaluation is extremely opaque.
I pm-ed you about my school and its weird grading scale....
I applied to Stanford (I'm sure I will be rejected), NYU (I think will be rejected, have been reviewed twice, and they usually issue offer at a quick speed), Columbia (I feel 170 is too low to reach it).
Penn (I ED the second round, will know my destiny soon...maybe WL, you know I am pretty pessimistic now)
Berkeley (1/4 UR, 1/23 under faculty review.... i guess the next step is WL/Ding..they love high GPAs....though my school is nice, my ranking is good and my prof should have highly evaluated me, the number is truly ugly....)
(I will be happy with any of these three in fact. But they don't have a high acceptance rate)
Cornell (I m not sure I will attend even if they accept me....)
