3/9'er still no word on $$...But I called the Financial Aid office Friday of last week and was told the committee who will be making decisions on $$ would be meeting on Friday (march 26) and once a week in the coming weeks. The guy took my name and gave me specific information that I should receive something in the mail this week....as of yesterday nothing though.


me three. no word here. my hastings scholarship is going to evaporate tomorrow, so i'd love to know today if usc is going to offer me anything.

Ya, I have two offers expiring this week. The first full $ tomorrow. Hope waiting doesn't make me the april fool.

Just went Decision Finalized right now. 3.4, 169. God I hope I get this one, I mean I don't know if I'll go, but I need an option in So Cal in case I decide to stay.

Does USC notify acceptances by e-mail or by mail?

zomg me too. I was never under review as far as I know (didn't check yesterday)... how long's it take them to tell us? and what's by email and what's by snail mail? I'm feeling bad news coming in but am mad at them for being so slow so don't care (until later when the freaking out kicks in =P)

LOL just went decision finalized after goin IR yesterday. Probably a bad sign, my numbers are low for SC. I laugh because some of you have been IR for months and for me it was only a day. How do they notify people? Snail mail? Thanks.

so we apparently weren't waitlisted. I wish that gave us a hint as to our decisions.

We can find out if we're a reject pile by saying our scores. If we all have similiar scores then its not good. 3.4 169 here.

We're fucked, aren't we? Seems like all this new DF batch is like <3.5 and <170. Ah well, maybe they're not doing a big reject batch but I kind of doubt it, what with being waitlisted at BU, what chance will I have with schools higher ranked? =(

With this cycle, I'm not going to be optimistic. Without a waitlist, we are either reject or accept, and I don't know, is USC really sending out an acceptance batch for people with our scores? Hopefully its not a batch:\.

debatable. I got $$ @ BU, Minn and W&M and $$$ at UIUC (it increased actually) and W&L. That said, it seems like we have all had different outcomes at different places.

But we all got DF pretty much at the same time. So either USC said "let's accept these 3 people" or "let's reject them". We're fucked.

Just went In Review 3.31 (from Complete 1.26)

I feel like they will start massive rejections soon, somebody mentioned that they try to get the "bulk" of their decisions out by April 1st, it seems like they are rushing through us now.

yea, I have had good offers so far from schools. I know that they aren't quite as highly ranked ranked as USC but i think it would be absurd to all of the sudden reject me when i am one point below median for LSAT and ever so slightly above median for gpa. I feel like i would have at least gotten a waitlist. then again, i also felt like i would have found out much earlier considering i sent in my app during october. jerks. lol
