IN by email at 3:30 EST. Ivy, URM, female, below median LSAT, and way above average softs/WE. I think this is what dying / living feels like. I'm definitely going since it's the only place I applied.

You guys have been my lurker-lifeline throughout this process, so I'm directing my positive vibes toward you. BEST OF LUCK EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!


Hm, maybe the 3:30 EST wave was a URM wave?

Thanks all! Not half as bold as it sounds - I just wasn't really planning on law school until next year. I wish I was that self-confident.

Random question: are acceptance emails personalized?

I'm guessing that they're about to get to faculty review dings.


Man TLS is fast! I was just about to post this, lol.

I wonder if they'll go back to calls or keep with the email trend to get decisions out faster.

Seems pretty clear that faculty had an April 1 deadline for final decisions, but many are still trickling in, no?

It seems likely that something like that happened. Nearly 1000 files go to faculty review, and less than 200 of those end up being accepted, per Asha's blog, so I'm not feeling too great about my chances tomorrow, even given the fact that I've survived the two major ding waves. Ah, well. Come at me, Yale!


Really, 1000? I thought it was like 20% (which would be less than that if really 2900 apps)?
