Still waiting to go complete since they received my app on 12/14. Have any December LSATers gone complete yet?

Same here. Been complete since 11/02.


What exactly does the post card say?


"Financing your future.

USD Law is committed to providing financial assistance to eligible sudents.

Sources of financial aid include more than 380 need/merit, merit, and diversity-based scholarships; federal plans, such as work-study programs; the Perkins, Stafford, and Graduate Plus loan programs; and institutional loans.

Private loan programs are also available to assist law students with supplemental financing.

For more information of important deadlines, procedures and federally required consumer information, visit our financial aid information web page blahb lah blah

The financial aid application process is separate from the admission process. Admission decisions are made without regard to ability to pay. To avoid missing deadlines, please apply for financial aid before you are notified of your admissions to USD law."

So I guess they're saying to apply just in case we don't receive our decisions before financial aid app deadline.


I got this a few days before getting my admission packet. no mention of money in the admission packet btw ;( but at least i got in!

I received that post card also.

It mentions something about applying for financial aid or something before you hear a decision. I don't know if that is good news for people waiting to here still?

Hopefully this post card is a pre-cursor to something beautiful. It would be my first acceptance if this is something the office does to high-probability admits. Congrats :D

BTW, when did you get the post card? Was this sometime recently? I live a couple hours drive from SD, so I assume they must have sent this card out friday or monday.

FWIW I was admitted to USD about 3 weeks ago and I got the postcard recently too.
Anybody know when scholarship information will start coming out?

Complete since mid-December

I got the post card yesterday and was also trying to figure out if they sent it to all 5000 applicants or if it in fact means I have good news coming .... dirty dirty mind games

Looking at last year's LSN folks, it seems like people didn't hear about scholarship until 1/26 or so. Is that what you guys are seeing as well? I sure hope to hear something sooner...

They were slow getting to mine as well but I went DR two days after going complete and getting a status checker, which was nice...

I can't tell if this thread gives me hope or takes it away.

I wish! Is USD still a viable option for you after being accepted to GWU, Veritas?

So you guys haven't heard back yet? I assume I will get the letter in the mail tomorrow if it was truly sent out today. I will let you guys know if I'm an accept or reject. Though I hope they don't reject me!! :(
