Thanks for this great thread, scoobs. One thing to note though is that Chicago does in fact have date changes after the interview. At least it did for me and a few others in the Chicago c/o 2017 thread. HTH.

Also, you might want to add that Berkeley apps are first read by adcomms and filtered into yes/no/maybe piles, and then the maybes receive an email (up to two months after going complete) saying they've passed an initial "administrative" review and are being sent on to faculty review. The faculty review board is comprised of both faculty and current students. About 10-15% of those in FR are admitted.

That's a good point! I'll update that. I just wanted to check though--it's:

FR 1
FR 2
Decision

right? Or

FR 1
FR 2
(Additional FRs)

or

FR 1
(Additional FRs)?

Hmm I've only been FR since 1/23 with no date changes since, so I don't know.

Idk it may just be the Butler/Hamilton offers, but I'm not sure about that.

No, the ASW has instructions to apply for grants and other forms of aid (it's the whole Need Access fun all over again, basically).

With Yale, I should add that they said in the webinar that non-acceptances will be mail UNLESS it's late in the cycle, in which case it'll be via email, so you might want to add the email bit.

For Alabama you submit and get LSAC confirmation but took me about a week to get a receipt email from Alabama. When I got that I went complete and got the receipt email in the same day and went into review 2 days later. A couple of weeks later went into committee review with a status date change on status checker. Phone call with acceptance and scholarship info from 205 area code.

I know these aren't T14 schools or even close but the OP asked for all schools so.

Penn State you get an email and then about a week later a paper mailing with scholarship offerings stip. They will also call a bit later (don't remember the area code) to make sure you got everything.

Syracuse will send it to you in the mail, and it will be a padded envelope as it has a t-shirt in it. Scholarship offerings sent with acceptance.

CUNY-email to check status checker and paper acceptance.

Creighton-snail mail

hope this helps.

Georgia goes Incomplete --> Complete --> Email acceptance --> Letter with scholarship info. No date changes.

Butler/Hamiltons go out with initial acceptances, all other scholarships (named and otherwise) come out later
