It seems to me that interviewing is the key to the fast turnaround time...I had a great interview before I turned in my app.

Numbers? I'm starting to get really antsy... complete since idek when.. early November though. And still nothing.

I've been complete since September 26. Interviewed in mid October. Radio silence



+1. Been complete since September as well...interviewed in November...still no movement since going complete. >75% LSAT, <25% GPA. Should I be worried?

Doubtful. It seems as though all who are hearing back from schools now are "sure shots" that can either account for yield and/or have solid GPA AND LSAT numbers.... middle of the road guys (such as myself) and splitters are probably gonna have to wait the usual amount of time, i.e. until January/February.

That isn't exactly true. Just look at LSN. Some reverse splitters and median-painting applicants have already gotten in.

My point remains the same: hope isn't lost -- far from it.

And also: saying "just look at LSN" is like saying "oh well, check wikipedia" ... it's pretty reliable but at the end of the day, it's user-generated content that can't be verified. So Idk if I'd use that as a health status checker for your/others' cycle(s).

Quick Question: Is there anything I should/could do if my alumni interviewer showed up 45 mins late? It was at his office but his call ran 45 mins into my interview Also he had a hard stop, so we only chatted for about 10 mins.

Maybe inform the school that there was a bit of a mishap. Aside from that, there's probably not much you can do.

I'm not sure who exactly you would contact, but I think they would want to know that one of their interviewers is not doing the kind of job he should be. If I worked in the admissions office I wouldn't want this guy to be conducting interviews. Sorry that happened to you.

Does anyone know if decisions have gone out yet to people who haven't interviewed? Or are they just getting through all of the interviews and then turning to the non-interviewers?

Just echoing the advice above, I would contact the admissions office and at the very least just make sure they are aware of what happened. I'm not sure how thorough their interviewers have to be in their reports and I'd think it would be pertinent for the office to know you only had 10 minutes to chat.

It would be nice if they granted you a late interview with a different alum! I don't know if they would, but if you feel that it didn't go as well as it could, then it sure would be nice!

has anyone submitted a Law Scholars application? how long did you make your responses? are the people in admissions looking at it, or can I basically rewrite my personal statement, since mine mostly answers these questions?

also, does anyone know how many people usually apply and how many are usually accepted? wanna know if I should have all of the hopes or only some of the hopes. or about no hopes.

I got the same e-mail today talking about scholarship evaluations, etc. Speaking of which, is it ever a non-terrible idea to contact admissions before scholarships are released to express your interest in the school? Basically, Vandy is far and away my number 1 choice and I want to tell them "hey, here are my other offers - if you give me close to $X in scholarships, I'll almost definitely enroll because you're my dream school." I know that would be showing my hand and potentially limiting the amount they give me (if anything), but my numbers aren't that great and I don't think a big scholarship is in my future anyway. Given that I probably won't get much, I want them to know how much it would take to seal the deal. For me, if tuition/fees are about $100K or less, I'm almost set (spouse will be covering COL).

Law Scholar here. I think my answers to each question were 250 words max and most were shorter, probably around 150. Out of my class of 180 there are four people (including me) that have it. Out of all three classes I think there are 11 people, so my guess would be either 3 or 4 people in the next class will get it. My numbers were 4.0/169 and I would expect that most people who get it are at or above both 75th percentiles, around median GPA with really high LSAT, or a URM with a relatively high LSAT. One guy in my class who has it is doing a JD/Neuroscience PhD.

I don't know whether you should have some or none of the hopes with 3.9/167 (gleaned from your previous posts). My guess would be you'll get between 90-110k. Unless you're a URM, then you'll get all kinds of full rides.

Whenever I try to load the status checker on this (and American U's) school's site, I get an error on Safari saying it needs some sort of identification certificate. All other schools' sites work just fine, and this error doesn't allow me to continue so it is keeping the checker from loading and I can't use it. Does anyone else have this problem, or does anyone know how to fix it?

The error looks like this, and whenever I push continue, it comes back up

I do not have said error. Although I am glad to see Vandy on page 1 again.

You can also try using Firefox to log in. I had the same problem with Safari so I just switch browsers to check those two schools now.
