Chances are my numbers aren't good enough, but I've got some interesting diversity characteristics, volunteer work, and am a URM, so you never know. Cautiously Optimistic.


Thanks again! Either way, I'll let you guys know what happens.

Wow, didn't know there was an 'under review' on the status check - have been sitting complete 10/26 for a while. Just figured a decision would arrive. Well good luck, hope they shoot out your answer shortly...

it seems like the 2 people who are at DR are URM's, so USC might be looking at URM's first before everyone else...

Congrats to those accepted already and good luck to those waiting!


Wow, congratulations! What was your decision dated? Did your status checker go to DR?


If southxii is telling the truth, then yes, since Philaw is now at DR.

that's 2 URM's at DR.

Hey, cheer up buddy, you'll be hearing from your schools shortly, I mean you sent them all in before the November deadline right? And you also said you overcame a lot of socioeconomic hardships and worked a ton of hours during the week. Before Christmas you'll get your BU results...and then I'll see you there next FALL.

i don't know how much of that seems to really matter to law schools. Yes, i worked 20-30 hours per week all throughout my collegiate years and grew up fairly poor. Law schools seem to care more about raising up their numbers so that they can go up in ranking. my 3.1 is just simply too slow for most schools it seems...

but thanks, i won't give up yet...

well...I was supposed to get dinged or waitlisted at BU based on the past 3 years...but my softs really helped me get accepted. And you never know, most people don't even post on TLS/LSN/LSP...they accept like on average a thousand students and only a few hundred matriculate...but on LSN and TLS there are nowhere near a thousand people posting up for each school. So you never know! I'm hoping for USC, and I'm pulling for you too bro...we are hometown boys...but if this doesn't work out I'll see you at Boston...OC boys representin' in the East!

You sound like my recommenders, who kept telling me that I over-applied. Of course, you're right, but I had my reasons for feeling conservative when I sent in the apps.

That is a great story and I really hope you get in.

Yeah, didn't know that either!! I just called their admissions office and they told me that it happens that you just go from complete--> DR, especially if you've already received the Rothman info. She told me to expect a decision in the next few weeks.

Huh, that's weird. I just double checked, and it is still under review....it actually says "In Review" and the date listed underneath....I wonder if this is a good thing or a bad thing?

quick question... I didn't receive any of the Scholarship info- is this an indicator that I probably won't be getting in? GPA above 75%, LSAT 25%...

Awesome. I'm very excited/anxious. Can anyone help me with this slight problem? I put my school apartment address as my mailing address, which was a bad idea because I will not be here over xmas break. If I go DR over that time period and I'm not here to see their decision, I'll go crazy waiting haha. Is there any way for me to get the mailing address changed without it being a pain for them? I figured I'd rather not give them more stuff to deal with. thanks for any insight/help.

you could just call them and tell them to send any mail to the permanent address you listed (assuming that you'll be at that address over xmas break)

Have you also received the Rothman info?
Can anyone confirm that it pretty much means you will likely be accepted???

Thanks for the quick response. I'll take your advice and probably give them a call tomorrow. I received the Rothman packet and I really hope it means that we will get in. Hopefully, we will find out soon.

No, of course not. It just means that you're not certain to get in. Splitters rarely get these offers.

+1. You should be in within a few weeks or so, which is nice.
