Good luck, everyone! I went to Pitt for undergrad, and it's a great school (and Pittsburgh is awesome)! If I didn't have a full-time job four hours away, Pitt would've been my first choice.

I'm waiting for a decision - applied to a joint degree program, been in review since mid-December :-)

I applied 1/12 under priority decision
Received an e-mail inviting me for an interview 1/15
Had interview 1/21
Email of decision sent 1/22

Status=Accepted

And it still feels surreal

For anyone who is invited for an interview, treat it like any other job interview; be professional, confident, and relax! Assistant Dean McCall and Dean Deasy are really nice. They may be conducting all interviews, though I'm not positive. You don't have to do a whole lot of talking. They ask the usual, tell me about yourself, what strengths do you see yourself bringing to the law school, are you able/have you planned how to finance a legal education, what area of law are you interested in etc. They gave a chance for me to ask questions and that was it. The whole interview lasted about 35-45 mins. They made me feel as relaxed as possible it barely felt that long!

In via status checker on 2/26. Should be receiving scholarship info within a few days. Hope its good. Pitt is my first choice but have already received competitive offers from Temple, Penn State, Case Western and Duquesne.

Yea...they wouldn't have been my suggestion as a safety choice. You probably should have done some research because they are historically stingy on scholarship offers. They are very friendly to negotiate with though. I was able to double my scholarship package with them.

Withdrawing soon with a full tuition scholarship. Good luck, everybody. The money is there, negotiate it.

I would expect it to take a week or maybe 2 at the latest. I applied in February and was told 8-12 weeks as well. It took a total of 8 days. I would think applications would be much slower to process then than now. Be sure to check your application status online though. Pitt uses snail mail and you may be waiting a week longer than necessary if you do not use the status checker.
