Good luck to everyone!

Planning to apply with a 3.45/162. Retaking in October though so hopefully the LSAT will bump up.

Even just a few points could get you around half scholarship.

You should be sent a username and password to keep up with your application online. The time frame from submission to decision is around 2 months when applications are sent in before Thanksgiving.

Got it today. Your estimation is spot on - the e-mail says they expect to send out decisions for people who apply in September around the first week of Dec.

LSAT above 75% and GPA right at the median.

I was amazed to see such a quick turnaround. Hopefully you'll see good news on the status checker soon!

The status checker didn't give any information on scholarships... Crossing my fingers something comes with the official acceptance letter.

This is my first cycle and first acceptance. Does anyone have any insight into when to expect an email from the school after getting in via status checker?

If I remember correctly, I was accepted toward the beginning of March and received an email with scholarship information the following week. A few weeks later, I received the official acceptance letter and information folder and etc. Keep in mind I applied much later in the cycle, so that may be the reason I found out my scholarship information immediately.

Just fyi: I checked the status checker today and the "congrats, you've been admitted" message was gone. I called the admissions office just to ask what was up, and was told that there had been a glitch and some admissions decisions were posted before they were supposed to. They fixed it, and now stuff won't be going out till November. If you did see the "admitted" message, you are good to go, you're just not supposed to know that yet. So, bottom line, don't freak out if you don't see an admitted message in the next few days, doesn't necessarily mean you're not in.
