What To Expect When You're Expecting c/o 2016

Postby twinkletoes16 » Tue Dec 04, 2012 11:53 pm

I thought this might be a useful thread to have around during this busy time of acceptances/denials/waitlists, when people are unsure which school they should be hearing from via phone (and if so, which area code/blocked number), email, snail mail, status checker, etc. It's hard to keep track when you're applying to many! Forgive me if something like this has been posted, but I haven't seen it and thought it beneficial to aggregate all the data into one thread, rather than combing through the 2015 mega-threads.

If people want schools added, just let me know. I grabbed the T14 and then some random T20s.

I'm happy to update it and edit as needed. Will aim to update once a day at night after work.

Checking in because I love the thread title.

And to say that a GULC denial is sent via email.
And to say that UT denial is sent via email.
And to say that Cornell denial is sent via email.

No shame. Retaking the Lsat anyways.

thanks! know the area codes, by any chance?


this is for those of us (me) who don't pick up unless they know the number. too many prank calls/telemarketers back in the day...should probably start picking up regardless now though.

Georgetown acceptance is snail mail. Harvard is the process of email for JS1, then the JS1 skype interview, then a phone call acceptance.

Thank you for making this thread! Now I will know the area codes to start freaking out if I ever receive a call from them :wink:

(This will help prevent me from freaking out when LG calls about renewing the warranty on my washer, or when my internet service provider calls to see if I want to add cable to my package.)


If I had a dollar for every weirdo number...NO I DO NOT WANT TO UPGRADE THANK YOU LEAVE ME ALONE IM IN THE MIDDLE OF A GLASS CASE OF EMOTION ALSO KNOWN AS LAW SCHOOL ADMISSIONS PROCESS

You are a genius for starting this thread.

Can you add George Washington to this list?

Thank you for confirming the Georgetown reject email.

I can't remember if they sent any goodies, it was mostly law porn and maybe a VULS bumper sticker. Texas sends a thumb drive, coffee mug, luggage tag, and bumper sticker
