Hey guys, I have wanted to go to ND my whole life. I applied with a 3.86 GPA and 164 LSAT on Feb. 28. I feel good about the scores, but I was wondering if you guys think I have a chance with applying so late in the cycle. Sorry for being disruptive, but I was just hoping to get an idea of how to feel about my chances at this point in the game. I know this isn't really that fun for any of us so good luck to all of you still waiting! I'll be right here with you lol.

I applied at the start of February with similar stats (3.88/166) and was accepted a month later with a good scholarship. I think your odds are very good, no matter how late you applied. I forget the percentage quoted by MS9, but it's something like 20% of applications (not ND, but in general) are submitted on deadline day. I'm sure some of those last minute applicants get in.

Notre Dame is my top choice. I'm entering week 7 of waiting now. Submitted 1/24 UR 1/27 UR2 2/20.

How long after UR2 did decisions come out for people? I'm getting very anxious.

I was complete 3/1 and just noticed a date change to 3/10. Should I expect one more date change before I can start thinking a decision is coming?

Decision made and no seat deposits. Has anyone had that and gotten in or is this definitely a WL or rejection?

went complete on 1/20 and haven't heard anything since then. Does ND have any status checker changes or does it go straight to decision made?

Welp. Another date change to 3/14 so I'm at:

Application complete on 3/1, 3/10 and 3/14.

Getting nervous now!! Honestly expecting a ding or WL though.

Happened to me a few weeks ago, email took a few days and seat deposits took even longer, but I was accepted. So no seat deposits doesn't mean a surefire wait-list or rejection like it has in years past.

Is there a consensus as to whether more date changes or less date changes before decision made bodes better for an acceptance?

Wow Notre Dame keeps impressing me. They had a professor email me and speak to me about their IP Law program because I indicated I was interested in that. Pretty cool.

Same! Hopefully, you got on AirBnB, because that's the cheapest lodging I found.

Decision made... What's the turnaround time on these e-mails? I saw someone say it took a few days to come through...
