Finally UR2 tonight! Complete since 12/18 and UR1 12/22. Have we figured out how much time is usually between UR2 and getting a decision?

i cant answer that but i can tell u it took a full 8 weeks from competion date to get a decision


usually it taks between 6-8 weeks to get results

using that method i was able to guess the exact day i would receive acceptance lol


i would say no later than feb 15th but u went ur2 quicker than i did (i think on my 5th or 6th week i went ur2) so maybe and have to wait less

u can vibe a achool out and tell if your in for a wait or not

Heard back about a week ago, got in with a nice scholarship. I wasn't crazy about the area but I did like the housing and the staff seemed really passionate. Probably my top choice right now. It'd be nice to be close to home as well, I grew up in Westchester.

I went UR/2 on February 20th and UR/1 in early December but they just changed my In Review date again today... does this mean I'll be getting a decision somewhat soon?

I was UR1 since 1/28 and I just went UR2 on 3/11, how long does it usually take after UR2 to receive a decision?

The review process was maybe 2-3 weeks. My friend who just got in waited the same amount of time. Brooklyn seems to be working through apps pretty quickly especially if you are above median.

I'm at the 25th median for LSAT but above the 50th median for GPA, so who knows lol

I was bored at work and put this together just to show how much of a crock the USNWR rankings are when it comes to strong regionals.

I compared George Washington which is ranked #30 to Brooklyn which is ranked #88 to see how many current associates are employed by V10 firms in NYC. GW is known as a trap school which is why I chose that particular one to compare it with. Weil has a weird way of listing employees so I couldn't get numbers for them.

is there a way to tell when those people graduated? Also, how do you compare schools looking at specific number of people at V10 firms?

If you actually click on their bios yes, but getting those numbers is an entirely manual process. It does take some time to do the compare.
