+1

whether or not dean's cert is in has no bearing on completion status.


Incorrect if you checked "yes" for the disciplinary question (#22). I received an e-mail stating that my application was complete EXCEPT for the dean's cert.

Anyone else get a call from admissions asking if they would like to be considering EA b/c their app was in on time????

I'm wondering if they just had a pile of apps completed by the deadline and are reaching out to see...I'm hoping they just can't wait to let me in though. ::sigh:: Wishful thinking. :wink:

Yeah they did this for a bunch of people who didn't check the EA box earlier in the fall as well. Mine was an email, but functionally the same thing.

Applied 9/24; Complete 10/2.


Congrats sharthree... Interview can't be a bad thing.

Just make sure you casually let them know about the acceptances you already have. :wink:

Ha...I am still pumped about Ithaca, and I am def giving it a look if they look toward their scholarship pile for me. [insert hopeful face here]


You'll wow them in an interview, I'm sure.

I think I'm flying to Durham in a couple weeks to interview at Duke. :|

Edit: are you still planning to retake in December?

Congrats on the interview; which you will rock of course. I am still planning to retake, because I already paid for it. (I am already in the broke law student mindset.) Plus Northwestern doesn't start decisions for a while, so it might give me a boost there, etc. I'm not studying as intensely because I just got burnt out...but I am PT'ing about 9 points higher than I did last time.


Those 9 points should be good for some scholly $$ even if you have already been accepted everywhere.

A few people have mentioned to me that the interview thing could be related to URM status. Do you think there is any truth in that? I can't afford to fly all over the country.
