If you don't mind - what was your LSAT score?


GPA < 25%
LSAT > median

Applied on 11/23/ and they were waiting for my December 16 scores. Complete on 1/4 and almost immediately into review. Eventually got accepted via status checker on 1/9!

Was really excited about this. It wasn't necessarily a reach...but it was a school I was curious about hearing from!

I checked the thread from last year. It looks like people were getting scholarship info during the second week of Feb.
I also hear that they are usually very slow and stingy with this. Let's hope that's not the case.

Just called! They told me that scholarship info should have been sent out 2-3 weeks after the accepted letter and they're trying to get out all scholarship info out by the end of the month...so by tomorrow.

I sent in my application mid last week and still haven't gotten a status checker or notification that they have received it... should I be concerned? I feel as though at the other schools I have applied to I received confirmation within 48 hours :shock:

Thanks for calling! How would they be able to get all that info out by then...? Also has anyone heard scholarship info yet? Doesn't look like it from LSN.

Hey all, I received the UMID email today but no acceptance. Anyone know of someone who got that email but wasn't accepted?

Thanks and all the best!

and it wasnt a "feel free to check the status of you..." email? they legit gave you a student email?


Yeah, they gave me a UMBID to log in. It's for blackboard, email, financial aid, etc. But it wasn't an admission email.



Maybe try looking at your status checker and see what it says. That also lists every email they have sent you so that might give more of a description.



I had the same thing happen. Applied last week with a fee waiver and got an email from IT asking me to set up a UMBID account but haven't been accepted yet. Very strange.

Last time I checked, they said they were delayed in getting scholarship info out. They estimated mid-February.

Same thing happened here. I got accepted. You're probs in.

I applied back in October, and the status checker still says "under review". Do you think I should shoot them an email and make sure that something isn't the matter? It's the only school I have yet to hear back from, by far.

I just heard back today, I'm in! My status checker still said "Under Review" when I checked it this morning. I just checked it after receiving the email and it says "Decision Made."
