does it take over a month?

Took exactly 1 month and 1 day for me. 12/11 to 1/12.

One step at a time. You have to survive the Berkeley massacre first! My productivity has gone to zero since people starting reporting rejection e-mails.
...and if I go under review along the same timeline as you, it'll approximately be in March. fml.

I bet it won't be that long for a decision rendered for you. Realistically mine was probably UR for only 2-3 weeks because of the holidays.

At least the guillotine is respectable, I'll be dragged behind the building and shot in the gutter, I'm not even under-review

I think I'll beat you to the rejection. I'm actually having my boyfriend check the mail for me since I have a work event 'till late tonight. I should know any minute now if I got something...

I was IR on 12/22 and then again IR on 1/7, with no DF as of today. I received the Rothman invite around the beginning of December and assumed I would receive some type of notification prior to needing to convince myself to sit down and put forth a 1-2 page effort. I'm fighting the urge to rest on my laurels after finishing the application process and am wondering whether the Rothman is, in fact, a tacit acceptance. Anyone else IR 1/7, Rothman invites, whose decision has yet to be rendered?

so far everyone with a rothman invite has been accepted. including last year. so you have that going for you.

People who have applied after, say, 12/20: have you gone complete yet?

I don't think you'll go complete for a while. It's been taking people 3 weeks to a month to go complete...

edit: a while, as in, maybe next week :D

Kinda seems fast if he really is in Kentucky... maybe there's still hope for me?

its not over until you get the letter. i don't know your stats though... but keep hope alive!

nm just checked your lsn. that guy had an lsat that was wayyyyy too low despite his GPA. you're in a much better standing.

I am this. Went In Review 12/17, still no DF, sent in my Rothman essay last week. I would just send it in...there's no reason to wait for the decision. If they sent the invite before accepting you, they won't mind getting your essay before they accept you.

I think there may still be hope for you! I'm pulling 100% for you, ren.

If you don't get a letter today, and this guy out in Kentucky did, I think it's safe to say that they were sent out on different days. I don't see any way that a first class envelope gets to KY before something gets to you. If your mailbox is empty, I'd take it as a good sign.


Thanks Jacques! Nothing in the mail today, so must be different days. 'till tomorrow's mail then :)

I hope you are right! My LSAT isn't great but my softs are good and my GPA up there. *fingers crossed*

I think that I might have forgotten to mention that I withdrew. Good luck, everyone!
