Officially withdrew today after being admitted back in December. I was recently awarded a $60,000 scholarship ($20,000/year), too, so my withdrawal may free up some merit aid as well.

I'm sorry it took so long for me to withdraw. I had a personal reason for considering USC (and UCLA) for this long, and as a result I could not withdraw from either school until now. Better late than never though, right? If you want to know why I had to stay in consideration until now, send me a PM.

Good luck to those of you still waiting. I hope my spot goes to someone on TLS.

I'll be going to Stanford, unless Yale decides to admit me, in which case I'll have a tough choice to make.

Join the club, friend. I'm on week 24 of completeness. Earlier in the thread, you'll find plenty of discussion about how annoyed and frustrated a lot of us are. You might even find a few quality conspiracy theories if you read carefully enough -- feel free to add your own. Enjoy!

3.0/168 went In Review on 3/26. Have not gotten a decision finalized yet and my stats are not terrific. On the other hand I had a serious family issue(death) my freshman year that bottomed out my GPA for a while. Anyone else still IR 3/26?? Just hoping for a WL haha.

I was IR for only a day, yeah, I'm a reject.

159/3.74, I never had a real chance of acceptance. I was waitlisted at some other lower T20s so I thought I might get a soft reject. I had an LSAC fee waiver so I figured it was a worth shot.

No need to be apologetic, getting an acceptance means you get to hold onto it until you're good and ready. I don't think some TLSers grasp the concept of yield anticipation; individuals holding onto their acceptances doesn't greatly affect how many more people they admit, because they admit many many more than they expect to accept.

did you go DF on 3/31, final?

A few pages back someone called and received the news that they were dinged, though someone else mentioned that it was a mixed batch (says admissions).

In other news, week 11 IR.

i thought waitlists aren't looked at until they're done with all the other applications first. So everyone will need to get a decision first (accept, reject, waitlist) then they start looking at waitlists, which is usually after the deposit deadline (May 1st).

+1. They don't really know how many spaces they'll have until after deposits are in.

I just tried and was told the scholarship committee will review the scholarship budget after April 15th.
