It's been 15 days since I've submitted my ED application and I'm supposed to hear within 3 weeks so the timeframe is right.


The mailings is up for me - are you sure it wasn't there before? Is it up for everyone in general now? I applied 1/12


It's up for me too. I applied 12/1


meep!! can any very recent applicants confirm that it's not up for them? do you remember if it was there before?


Welp. Definitely not a thing - just got a ding.

I've never disliked living in California until I had to wait for mail from D.C. I won't believe the ASW until I see the physical proof and it's so slooooow

Mailings for me popped up as well, but got invite for interview. They probably just did updates for a lot of people

I don't think it's a big deal to send one now. I wrote a "why x" after I already submitted my app and they just added it to my file.

Dont do it. If you've got good numbers, just wait for the interview and crush that.

I got interview requested yesterday with no optionals submitted.

when did you apply? I only applied 1/12 so maybe if I don't hear anything back in a week or two, I'll send something? LSAT @ 75th GPA < 25th

Same here. Though I was actually thinking of writing and an optional essay the day that I received my acceptance. But still, I don't think it hurts you when you don't send one.

We don't have to fill out any of the financial aid forms before we get our scholarship offers in February, right?


I'm going to start doing them next week, anyway.

before Feb? don't think so.
I know they want it all by March 1 (all = fafsa, css, and student/parent 2015 (maybe even 2016) tax returns and W2s)

Any movement for ED applicants? Next Wednesday will be 3 weeks for me and I'm wondering if I should expect to hear back on time.

First admit! I thought I was pretty late on these apps; I submitted just over a week ago. No interview, no phone call, and no "why" essay. Below LSAT Median and at the GPA 75th.

Pretty stoked, obviously... definitely not expecting anything this soon.

I also got a quick turnaround - submitted 1/9, no interview, no "Why." <25th on both. I hadn't even status checked. Just got a letter in the mail. Pretty excited!
