As of yesterday, my status checker said Application Complete. The date changed twice and I received a decision only a couple of days after that !


This makes me hopeful! I've seen a few date changes! Fingers crossed for an answer soon!

Just got my acceptance letter and scholarship letter in the mail! 90K, which is more than I expected! And a handwritten note that made a warm joke about my personal statement. Damn, I'm highly impressed.

FINALLY got my scholarship info today. Got a scholarship of 110k. Very happy with that offer, especially w/ my numbers - 165/3.73. I'm not sure what I'm going to do now, every day I had been waiting to check my mail and now I have nothing to look forward to until Michigan and Northwestern get back to me with denials XD

105k. Very underwhelming considering the other offers I've gotten. Hopefully they will negotiate

I'm as Caucasian and Upper Middle Class as they come. I had average softs. Student Government etc., some decent work experience for a K-JD but definitely nothing that put me over my numbers. I do think I wrote a strong personal statement and had solid LOR's, but if there was any single thing that might have helped me I think it might have been when I met with Jake Baska (director of Admissions) and got to sell myself a little in person. I also put a lot of thought into my "Why NDLS" paper. After saying all that - if I'm being completely honest - I'm surprised I got that much. I expected 90k.

Mine came in a large priority mail packet, but mine included my acceptance letter and information packet too, so if you've already received that then it could be different for you.

Got my scholarship info yesterday as well. 75K. Also had a great handwritten note from the admissions director that referenced my Why ND statement. I thought it was a nice touch.

Did you get it in a small envelope? I've heard package and envelope. I just need to know because an envelope can be in my tiny little apartment mailbox, but a package will go to the front office of my idiotic apt front office who are prone to losing packages. For reference - I have already been accepted and got my acceptance package back in December.
