I applied RD and was accepted on 11/20. :!: You could hear any day now, depending on when you applied. It took them about 5 days from the date of "completion" of my application to the rendering of the decision.

Five days from "completion" or five days from "In Committee" ?

Sorry, I was "In committee" for about 5 days before being accepted.

I personally did not.
I believe they asked if I would consider PT if I didn't get into FT. I answered 'no' to that.

Just received the Defer to Reg. Admissions letter today. I nearly crapped my pants when I read the first sentence. "I am sorry to inform you that you were not admitted to Santa Clara University School of Law..........under the Early Action Plan."

Man that is poorly worded when you take into account the fragile mind of law school applicants. I bet some would not even finish reading the letter after "you were not admitted".

How long were your applications in committee?
Do you mind if I ask you scores?
My file is in committee and I am so anxious about it

Got in just a few minutes ago. Status: Decision Mailed. Deposits due: 4/1 and 6/1. I am guessing this means I'm in right? I don't want to get ahead of myself. Anyone get an acceptance in the mail after having deposit dates show? Just want to make sure. Did my undergrad there and live in the area so should get the mail soon, however my GPA is below the 25% though my LSAT is above the 75%.

The consensus seems to be that this means you're in...mine and others had the same thing.

It would be awesome to get money, but my numbers are fairly average which means I probably will end up on the east coast....:(

They will definitely give you the decision over the phone. I called as soon as I saw, "Decision mailed." If you see deposit info, I think you're likely in. Congrats!

Alright, it's official. Got a big envelope in the mail today. Time to see how much money, in any, I'll get. Good luck to everyone still waiting.
