It's been pretty fast for most so far. Probably sometime next week? Could change with this batch though.

Hey guys - this is for the ASW on Feb. 24th -

I got an Airbnb for myself for the nights of the 23rd/24th and a 2 bedroom one happened to be the best deal. If anyone is needing a place to stay for that event I guess I'll have the open room! $140 for 2 nights and the room that you'd get has 2 twin beds in it so no prob bringing an extra person; looks like there's a futon too so if there's more go for it lol. If interested PM me and I'll send you the link so you can check it out... 21/M but I'd stay with anyone so feel free to contact me! I'm just excited to get back up to Boston.

That relieves me.. I got UR mail on 01/06 but still not getting decision... Hope this will not take any longer..

I hope so. Two weeks UR seems pretty normal compared to what others have said, but they probably got a lot of apps right after December scores came out. Good luck and hope we hear back soon!

Why made you write one this time if you got in last time without one?

If you're reapplying, especially after having been previously accepted, then you probably should write one or you run the risk of getting YPed.

Think about it: If you turned down an acceptance, wouldn't adcomms think that their school isn't your first choice (or not even one of your top choices)? What makes them think you would attend this year? That's what you should explain somewhere in your app.

Huh? I'm shocked by this one. Write a LOCI for sure!

Ugh, looks like no decision for me today. Hoping I don't get hit with a YP since my LSAT is really above their 75%

I would assume that if we were getting a decision today they'd have updated our status checker. Hopefully I'm wrong though
