I am "Decision Made" today. Do they ever send acceptances through email? Because if so, then I'm screwed or waitlisted. Can anyone shed any light on this?

Looking for some advice. I'm waitlisted at ND, but I've been accepted at Emory with a moderate scholarship. I deposited there, but do you think I should wait it out to hear from ND, or withdraw from the waitlist? I can't afford ND without a scholarship, and I would assume the prospects of scholarships for waitlists are bleak. Thanks!

I got off the ND wait list in late April last year with a scholarship offer. Not sure what the common practice is though.

It's not ND, but I got off the waitlist of another school last year with a half scholarship.

Sometime waitlist might be due to YP, if that is the case, if you get off waitlist (most likely by showing a firm commitment to ND), you will probably receive a scholly

Anybody gonna send a second scholarship negotiation letter after the deposit? I'm hesitant because the language was so final the first time around, but then also, not sure it can hurt?

I still think a personal conversation is better than a letter. A letter is easy to reject, while saying no to a person face to face or on the phone is (relatively) harder.

I'm debating/waiting for new information I can use as leverage. Admissions has said they will consider June LSAT scores for more scholarship money. Obviously no guarantee though. In a perfect world I'd get a higher score and score release would coincide with a late acceptance off a higher ranked waitlist play. I lucked out with a scholarship offer slightly above the traditional $25k cap so I'm not sure how much more I can hope for. Not sure it's worth the time/effort/additional $160.

brrrcat, I'm retaking. As much to get off MI's waitlist w/ money as to increase $ at either ND or WUSTL whichever I decide to Deposit2 at.

kyle, I generally agree. most of TLS indicates that emails are better for negotiation purposes. that probably doesn't matter in this case since they aren't really open to negotiation anyway. and I contemplate driving up 3.5 hrs to ND everyday and just not leaving until they throw me a bone

I was accepted via email, but it came the day after my status changed to "decision made". Seems like those accepted get emails about a day after their status changes.

My status showed that a decision was made and my seat deposits showed in the lower left hand corner. I did not receive an email until nearly a week after, however. It was a tough wait.

Seat deposits have been a relatively accurate indication of admission.

I received it via snail mail. I emailed them the day after ASW.
