Accepted way to quick (within a day)

Postby Mendel » Mon Feb 23, 2015 11:32 pm

HI
I sent out some applications on Saturday night the 15th of February at 9:45pm. A few days later I received an acceptance letter in the mail. It was from one of the schools I applied (FIU) and offered acceptance as well as a scholarship, the letter heading said February 16th. Did they read my application on the Sunday morning right after it arrived and accept me instantly?
Another school (U of Miami) sent just an acceptance, dated February 19th (just a 4 day lag).

Is this normal?
and did they actually read through my application and accept me, or do they automatically accept some people based off of GPA/LSAT (while mine aren't very impressive, they are above average. 157/3.7)?

Thanks in advance,

Late in the cycle. Auto-admit numbers at fiu (I assume). They probably only got a few apps post-feb lsat. Probably decided on all of them that monday.

Weird but I dont think anything to worry about.

Edit: didn't notice the sunday part at first. Definitely odd. Still doubt it was some sort of accident.
