Take this with a grain of salt, but I read on this forum that USD ranks applicants in an index by GPA and LSAT; they go down the index, reviewing individuals that were not candidates for auto-reject or auto-acceptance on a case-by-case basis. You are either accepted, rejected, waitlisted or held for further review.

Perhaps the delay comes from being held or falling somewhere in the rank that would cause them to review other applications ahead of yours. Who really knows but them. Ask.

Come on! Don't hit those of us who have heard nothing and are freaking out with logic. While your post was insightful, it is not as much fun or reassuring as seeing other people in the same position I am in freaking out.

I gotta say, If I were complete since 10/13/09, I'd call and see what the problem was. For getting your application in that early, you deserve the courtesy of an answer before now.

I applied late... I DESERVE NOTHING!

Just think, a year from now you will know exactly what you deserve and what laws apply. I agree, if you are still interested, and were complete 10/13/09, call them. I have not yet because I applied late and deserve nothing.

I feel you. I'm busy freaking out over in the Davis thread for the same reason.

I did call, and they said that when you applied has nothing to do with when you hear back or even when your file is reviewed. Some of the people looking at the files are professors and take a long time to get to and review files

Damn you USD. I had a dream about USD acceptance last night! I just want an answer. And I want that answer to be accepted!

I'm pretty discouraged by how long it is taking to hear from them, their bump in rankings, and folks I've seen here get dinged who had better numbers.

I feel for you. Even though my waitlist made me sob like a little baby, I feel better knowing that I can start to make other plans. Good luck!

For people who have already been accepted, is USD offering good money? Obviously depends on numbers and stuff, but I heard a rumor that USD has little money to give at this point. I just got a great offer from USF but am hoping USD will still be giving something!

yes I went DR on 4/19. My turnaround was pretty good although i thought my numbers were pretty decent for usd. I wonder if they will be giving any scholly money out after seat deposits for anyone waitlisted. I kind of doubt it but let's hope so.

Were you accepted outright or waitlist then accepted? Your numbers are just slightly better than mine.

I was waitlisted April 9th when the big wave of waitlisted people came out.
