I understand it's typically bad manners to call an admissions office and ask what's going on with my app...
...but it's almost April and I have deadlines for deposits coming up. I need a decision and any possible financial aid info no later than April 14 from all of my schools. At this rate, it's going to be May before I even hear back. Would this be a reasonable excuse for calling in?

I have heard that it is not uncommon for adcomms to release decisions on URM applicants in waves...hopefully, we are a good news batch!

UR1 2/7 went to UR2 today after sending LOCI last week.

LSAT 170
GPA 3.88

But I'm really fricking old with established career. They may view me as nucking futs.

the anticipation is killing me. at this point I want to know a definitive answer on admission and financial aid package (scholarships, grants, merit&needbased). Does anyone know how quick the turn around is from UR2 -- final decision? ... or does it vary wildly ? does scholarship info, if awarded, come along with the admit info or weeks later?

Earlier ITT there was talk of about a 10 day turn around after UR2, but it looks like it is starting to take longer as the cycle comes to a close...

I'll take a slow yes over a fast no, though.

You have the right mentality.I shall be happy if I hear back by April 1st. LOL itd be great if we found out on april fools day though...well maybe not really haha
I thankfully already got into a T10, but I have had a college-crush on Upenn for years, definitely my top choice if the money is right.
