I got a letter with return service requested so I figured it wasn't a rejection. I opened it up to find the waitlist notice. I applied Early Decision so that might explain the quick response.

No I don't mind you asking, my numbers just suck lol. 2.7, 159, AA male. I wrote a kick ass personal statement and a Why ND essay because I love that school. I hope this turns into good news in April but I'm not all that optimistic

How close are you to ND via mail, just wondering? When I visited they told me I would know by end of Oct or beginning of Nov so I hope soon, but I live in the south so I don't know how long the mail difference is. Yea I am analyzing it that much...

I applied early October and went complete about two weeks ago. Numbers are 163/3.51. I really like my PS, but I didn't write a why ND essay. Will that seriously hinder my possible acceptance? I was considering writing one if I got W/L to describe why I should be admitted. Thoughts? ND is my top choice too.

P.S. Congrats to those who got in. For those on the W/L, its better than rejection (good luck to you!)

You guys have got me freaking out... went complete 10/29. Seems they have been pretty hard to read, based on the LSN stats for people. Maybe they are looking more at softs? Maybe there isn't enough information?

From what I heard Notre Dame likes to be told who awesome they are to you. Your numbers would hurt you before they got to that point. I am assuming your a non-urm.

They are weird in that they are not a strictly numbers school. Although they do favor GPA over LSAT. I am on the fringe personally so I am a little worried with a 166. 3.47. But I heard community involvement and emphasizing their ethics code scores big points.

For those of you guys that are curious, I received a waitlist letter yesterday and I am in California (Los Angeles). I applied regular decision but I applied quite early, went complete in early October. My stats are 164, 3.57.

Does ND have a status checker? I applied 10/28 and have yet to hear anything yet.

Not that I can find. I applied 10/20 and got the complete email today with no mention of a checker.

There is no status checker, but ND seems to be really on top of things in terms of getting out decisions quickly. I almost find status checkers to be an unnecessary source of anxiety anyway.

I applied regular decision but didn't write a "Why ND" statement and was waitlisted. 171 and 3.28, I'm writing a statement now to see if that helps move things along.
