Just as an FYI for anyone with a pending alumni interview request, I had to turn down my interview and was told that my application would be placed back into the admissions cycle for "final review".

Congrats to those in the first round of acceptances!

Rhode Island gets no love. At least it's Friday and there is a possibility for tomorrow.

just send them a polite email and give a short explanation. It won't hurt your admissions chances, they're probably aware a lot of people don't want to go $300K into debt.

With your numbers, I would say even if it hurts your chances you'll be fine somewhere else and will be glad you avoided that debt.

Haven't received anything in the mail yet, but got an email from Dean Cornblatt about the "Decision 2016 Law Forum," and the first line says "First of all, congratulations again on being admitted."

But I wasn't admitted yet...strange.

Edit: congrats!

For everyone that has been admitted already, did you all submit on the first day?

If not, when did you submit? Thanks

Sounds like you have an acceptance letter coming your way! Congratulations! Since you haven't gotten your letter yet, do you mind sharing where you're located for those of us who are far from DC and still waiting?

Congrats to all the admitted folks! Just a quick question: did you all do an optional essay/video? (Aside from the standard Diversity statement)

Thank you! Mailing address is in Maryland, so I'm surprised that I haven't received anything in the mail yet.
