Anyone?.....Anyone?


I got a nice offer from IU Maurer School of Law so I'm wondering if I can use that as a negotiation tool.

Has anyone that applied in Jan heard back? I submitted an app Monday (late, I know). Wondering what the turnaround has been?

Did everyone else get two mailings from ND? I got my initial packet and then a second letter from the Dean.

Based off the experiences of people who got decision made it is likely that you did get denied.

I would give it a few hours to see if the status checker updates with the deposits.

Yeah, if you haven't received an acceptance e-mail within a few hours, it's a waitlist/ding. :(

Damn it... alright thanks guys. I put a shit ton of work into my DKL and Why NDLS. Bummer dude. My numbers were both right below their 50th percentiles. I think a WL is likely.

Does ND have an "in review" status update or does it go from complete to decision made? Also, why does my status date change while the status remains the same? Do they just keep like tossing my ass to the back of the line or something?

I applied early December, went complete 12/8, and then saw a date change on 12/12, but haven't seen any movement since then. What gives? There seems to be a fast turnaround for people on this thread that I just haven't experienced. Should I just hold my horses until the end of my expected wait time (Feb 13)?
