So yesterday was a whirlwind of a day where within about 3-4 hours I got my first acceptance (WashU) and then got all my grades back and had my worst semester GPA of all college. So that's great.

Quick question!!

I realized I made a small(?) mistake on 3 of my applications (Wash U/Fordham/Vandy) that I've sent in already on my employment section of the application and the resume. For one activity, I said I did something from 9/2013-5/2013 when I did it from 9/2013-5/2014. Should I call and update or just pray they miss it? I do like all of the schools ~~ :oops:

Why don’t you just send an updated resume to their admissions email

Good point! I just don’t want to call attention to a mistake they might not have noticed.

Submitted 3 apps this weekend for a total of 7. Slowly but surely getting through, I thought I’d have more time after the December test but alas, here we are. Might apply to 2-3 more, honestly all I want for Christmas is an LSAC gift card

Does anyone know when law school admissions will be working again after Christmas? Is it typically in the new year?

Someone at Cornell told me they’d be back on January 2nd and I assume that’s a pretty standard time frame.

Does anyone ever think why they didn’t want to be an accountant or a computer scientist or something? Even after being certain about law school for some time now the idea of actually going has me shook- i cant explain it haha but that quarter life crisis is kicking in for sure now that my apps are in

anyone? :(

the TLDR is: should I update a school with a revised PS or nah?

My instinct is that it's normal and not a huge deal, although it's probably not worth it unless it changed to something really special

I basically completed changed up an entire paragraph and I think it's a lot better. it's only 2 schools I applied to wayyyyy earlier in the cycle, 1 of them has been reviewing my app and the other waited for my dec score.

I think you're totally fine to update, especially for the school that told you they're waiting

Any guesses when we might have some acceptances after the break? I’m waiting on Northwestern, Penn, and NYU.

Yeah I'm feeling this hard. A couple weeks ago it really hit me that I'll be moving away from all my family and friends for at least 3 years (and possibly much, much longer) to one of around 7 cities. I have no idea where I'll be living in 7 months. What made it even worse is that my current job has been hinting that they want to bring me on full time after I graduate, and that I also have the opportunity to be a grad assistant and get my MBA for free at my TTT undergrad.

Pretty sure I'm going to law school but you're right, the fact that its finally becoming real has me shook.

Hahah relatable. I feel terrified i dont know where i will be this time next year. It’s exciting but also causing me anxiety for sure. Even though law is what I want to do, just making sure im not alone out here

Hi all!

I emailed my schools with a resume update and received automated responses stating the admission offices are closed until January 1, and will resume normal business hours on January 2nd. Just wanted to let everyone know January 2nd is the date! :D

Anyone know the approximate earliest late Dec/early Jan applicants can expect to hear back?
