went to "decision rendered" today...no email

I'm guessing that means I'm rejected :?:


Update: Sent the office of admissions an email changing my address/requesting decisions be sent via email since I will be traveling about and received one back saying that my letter would be sent "by the end of this week". They don't seem very eager, I am still guessing that means a rejection.


What do you mean by eager? They don't get all excited if you're going to be an admit. Trust me, you'll get in! Your numbers are great for UH.


+1 you've got nothing to worry about...

Just got the e-mail, I'm in!

171/3.0... Complete early January, although I had to contact them last week b/c I had never received an e-mail saying my application was complete or giving me status check information.

Anyone receive any scholarship info yet?

I got the e-mail today too! 170/3.7. No mention of scholarship but I hear that they do it separately so I'm not sure how that will work.

Looks like another batch of decisions may have gone out today, and I'm still in review. The wait continues.

Yeah, it really is nice to have it. Took them a while to send these out, but I'm glad to have an option (especially if there's money). All in all, great news!

In as well. Applied 1/5 and I'm really surprised how quickly they got back to me as my numbers are nothing special (162/3.5).

Just got the letter. It wasn't sent out on 1/26 (my status checker lies!) because it was postmarked 1/30. :lol: Letter is a regular sized thin white envelop, nothing fancy. It also says scholarships will come in a separate letter.

I am dying of anticipation! My file still just says "complete" and has been there since 10/27! I know they are supposed to get back to early admits by the end of February (latest), so they better hurry on up!!!

Did you apply FT or PT? I expect them to probably look at the next batch in mid-February but the good news is that the deadline for FT is February 15th, whereas for PT the deadline is all the way in May...which means longer wait (like myself)

Applied 10/01
Complete 10/24
In Review 12/02
FT ED
#1 school for me

The wait is agonizing and it can't be healthy to refresh your email every 10 mins.

Similar turnaround as me only I applied PT and my application status says "Hold" which is deferred, which sucks for me cause the PT deadline is May 15th...ridiculous

I'm wishing now I had applied part time cause my numbers are a little low (155/3.4) but I have some killer LORs. I guess time will tell. :?

you can always email them an ask them to change your application...my friend did it and switched from PT to FT

and sadly the further along I go through this process, the LSAT really is the only thing that matters to these guys...I also have a low score but i'm retaking in Feb
