Expect a decision or expect scholarship notification?

I think that was Anna saying that she had received her decision and mag saying she had recently applied. With all the talk about scholarships, Austin was wondering whether Mag had called in about scholarship deadlines or her application.

I hear if you offer to pay more for tuition you can get in with a 155...

In all seriousness, no, it wouldn't change your chances and would most likely make you come off as desperate. This is a rough cycle, hold out hope, they will probably be offering a bit farther down the line than they normally would (not trying to say you have bad numbers, just trying to address what your question seems to imply).


You guessed correctly, I asked precisely because I do not have much hope of getting in. I think my LSAT is above median, but I do not have a GPA as I am an international candidate.

You definitely should apply! Not sure how they classify international vs. domestic (citizenship or permanent residency), but my undergraduate institution is foreign too. If I got in, I am certain you have a great chance.

Yeah, LSAT is really important to them this year, and international UG adds diversity. I'd almost call you a shoe in if you have a good GPA/academic track record. Definitely would've earlier in the cycle. I'd say you have a great shot!

I applied on 1/20, went complete on 2/3 and now have another complete today 2/11? Does anyone know if multiple completes mean anything? and has anyone received acceptances that went complete today? I have a hair above 75% GPA and a hair below 25% LSAT so I don't fancy my chances. Thanks for the help.

Multiple completes are common. If history is an indicator, we might be getting "decisions made" tomorrow, with the appearance of the Seat Deposit $$$ Numbers as harbingers of our admittance. Good luck to all, brosephs.

Let hope we all get good news. I have my doubts but I'm trying to stay positive. Good luck!

FWIW, I had a second complete date a week or two after my first (like you) but didn't get admitted for another 5 weeks after that. This was back in Nov/Dec though. I'd expect you have at least a couple weeks before a decision though. Good luck!

Haha I would too if I were you! I just wanted to give you a heads up that you probably won't get a decision tomorrow. You're welcome to hit the refresh button every 10 seconds though just in case :)

Haha if it makes you feel better, MX told me the same thing but I had my decision the next day. Most people didn't wait that long.

Thank you for the positive reinforcement! On a side note, I see you in about every other thread I'm in, and I can't help but assume you are a very beautiful woman. Damn avatars.
