The consensus is the package is being shipped to permanent addresses, correct?


BoM said current address.

Admitted via mail today! Hurray! 3.57 / 177

The letter/packet were sent to my current address in Ohio.

The packet is tragically boring except for the obviously quite exciting offer of admission. :-P

I submitted in late September but didn't actually go complete -- due to LOR issues -- until early December...or maybe it was late November. Around there.

It feels so good to get this news I've just been waiting every day to hear from my last few schools and it's been nothing nothing nothing all month. Finally!

Good luck to everyone!

Can I just point out how ludicrous it is that it is the year 2014, and yet I am breathlessly awaiting a piece of paper to physically travel across the United States before I can possess potentially life-changing information?



That is all.
CLS I still love you.

From what I have read there will likely be letters delivered this whole week, including Saturday, and then into early next week. This is the "big wave" people talk about. If you are accepted this wave, you should probably expect to see your letter by next Monday or so.

Can't speak on how staggered the sending is, but decisions from the first big wave were received over a period of 6-7 days last year. The biggest days were day 4 and 5.

Thanks to you and lawschool22, I won't have a heart attack if I don't see anything this week. Have my fingers crossed though! Good luck everyone and congrats to the admits today.

Last year, letters were dated the 25th and the 29th (a Friday and Tuesday).

So if they follow last year (in terms of days of the week), I would say another batch was sent out today or will be sent out tomorrow.

Curious to see if the Butler/Hamilton are still being sent out with initial acceptances or if they changed that.

Haven't posted much before, but just got in via email!!! I'm int'l, US student studying in UK, LSAT is 173, GPA is 'above average' according to LSAC. To all int'l applicants still waiting, don't worry, my letter was dated the 28th so they're definitely staggering out emails too!
