From the email I got "The review process will begin in February and decision letters are mailed out from February through May."

Yes, they are definitely one of the slowest schools.

I went to a law fair a few months ago and every school I talked to said they would start reviewing apps in November and December and Oregon said they hadn't even thought about it yet, which I thought was amusing.

I don't think they are "slow" per se, they just only have a staff of about 5, which is tiny compared to most, so they just don't bother digging in until they can hire temps to do the processing once reviews begin. Just looking to save some coin is all.

I'm not a very patient person. Maybe I should walk over there and explain to them why they should let me in and why they should do it now. :idea:

It's been nice these past few months, though, knowing I didn't have to worry about wondering when I'd hear. That, of course, will change when the calendar changes.

Especially because they narrow it down to 5 months.

Some candidates are notified before February 1. Most candidates receive notice before the end of May.


So I could be in this terrible waiting game until May? :cry:

It's all a matter of perspective. I had a super nice house for 150K less than my current house in Jersey. They have great restaurants, breweries (ECB), dog parks and things to do outdoors. The main issue was employment, but I was lucky to work for one of the more succesful companies there.

Lol, nevermind, I'm an idiot. I just got it a long time ago and people were saying they just got theirs recently so I got worried.

Oregon is my top school if it ends up being significantly cheaper than every ware else... I would like to go other places but if it come down to 150K at Santa Clara or USD or 60K at Oregon then im going to go with U of O every time... I go to Oregon State for my undergrad though so I find the prospect of attending Oregon physically painful in many ways.
