Weird story. I get a "you are on hold" email from R-N and then like 2 hours later another email from them telling me that I have not paid my fee due to a credit card problem (expiration date thing). I thought that was the reason for my "hold" but the lady said no and that I was indeed put on hold. So I'm now in this position where I'm like, "If I would have known before I applied that I would be deferred, would I still have paid to apply?" It is a tricky situation but I'm thinking I will pay still because they are such a great option for people with my #'s who can't afford that much in tuition.

if you dont mind me asking, what was your GPA?


Due to the fact that I did not attend a school in the US, LSAC did not give me an exact GPA. It just stated "Above Average" on my LSDAS report.
Sigh again. Now I just have my fingers crossed on my application to other schools.

I think you should pay ASAP and I think you're going to get in at some point thereafter. I also don't buy their explanation. They probably were getting ready to evaluate your file or actually already did evaluate you, and then realized your payment didn't go through and had to put you aside for the time being. This is all speculation, of course, but entirely plausible, no?

All of you people getting WLed is seriously freaking me out. How long was the turnaround from when you went complete to when you got a response so I can start ballparking when I should find out.

R-N is one of my top choices by far, and I genuinely thought I would be admitted. All of these WLs around my numbers are absolutely terrifying me though, haha.

1. You need to rank your schools on LSN .. .srsly I can't remember what your top choices are

2. You need an avatar

3. Don't you have a job or something?


1. haha. I don't believe in ranking schools!
2. Ack, but of what!
3. Yes, I do. In fact, I've been insanely busy this week helping the paralegals catch up on stuff and doing tons of random data entry/attempting to be generally helpful to people. Plus, people have been extra super mean to me on the phone this week. And it hailed this morning.

ps, don't you have a job or something, too? =)

I was deferred in January, and since then have been trying to set up a visit...for the past month. I have found the staff to be fairly rude and unresponsive. Needless to say, if they end up accepting me, they've moved way down on my list.

2. idk what MGG is, but I am sure Elle Woods could kick their ass.
3. lol my attys are so lazy, I haven't had much to do today. Hail? in JAX? lol wut? Apocolypse! It must be Tuesday!

ETA: I went into review committee at UF OMGWTFBBQ D:


Fine, I'll go rank them.. MGG plays Dr. Reid on Criminal Minds (aka my new tv obsession - he's my lj icon too hah.) yeah, work has been a bit insane lately. One of the legal secs is very ill, so I've basically been doing half her job (the paralegal is doing the other half) and my own until she gets caught up. Then the other legal sec needs help catching up on opening files.

Indeed, hail in Jax. Traffic was terribad.

Now, bringing this post back on topic: Seriously, does anyone have an idea of the average turnaround that R-N has? Like, when you went complete, how long did it tak for them to notify you of your acceptance/waitlist? Please and ty.

coolkatz - When did you go complete to get that deferral? =) Also, I'm sorry to hear that =(

I went complete 12/18, Deferred 1/22. My LSAT is a bit low, but I thought I'd be in with my GPA. Disappointing, and my attempts to set up a visit aren't helping.

Giles....

The unbelievable happened, and I got accepted at Berkeley today. That was the ONE school that my husband and I agreed to pack up and move with no question for...so looks like this is it. I'll always have a special place in my heart for Rutgers, though. :D

Definitely. I probably would have done the same.
After the Open-House, I'm actually leaning back towards Seton Hall.
