After my requirements list disappeared I received an acceptance letter a couple days later. Letter sized envelope with 3 or 4 sheets of paper in it. Good luck.

Thanks.

I was pretty confident a week ago - then I got some false information from a dean due to a computer error that said I was waitlisted. Once that was cleared up and the dean admitted that I wasnt even under review yet, my nerves calmed a bit. I want to be admitted so I can make a road trip to new england (never been) during my high school's spring break in a week and a half. :mrgreen:

Financial aid award letter. Mine has stafford loan offers- I assume that it would have grant info if I was cool enough to have won a grant. :)

Has anyone tried to ask UConn for more money/negotiate for more merit aid? Just wondering if this is something that UConn is open on.

Can you PM me too? Though I don't think I'd be eligible for merit aid cause of my lsat score lol, unless they look at my grad school GPA as well. But I'd like to at least try to get something!

I still havent even gotten a completion email. 13 days ago I emailed to confirm that my Certification form had been received, and was told

"We have the form and your application will be completed soon. "

Should I just freaking call?

Mine disappeared on a Tuesday and I got my acceptance letter on Thursday, but I'm in CT.

I think you're looking at Friday?

Do you have a status checker that is showing incomplete (requirements not checked off)? It took more than three weeks for them to notify me that my application was complete after receiving the status checker and confirming that they had all of my materials.

No status checker!! I called and had a 7 second conversation. "I'm calling bc I haven't received a completion email" Gave my name and was told "We have everything"

Who knows...

FWIW, it took one day for my application to go complete, and then I waited about 3 months for a decision...

So it seems like there is a general inconsistency in how the applications are handled?

Well I applied very early, and you (presumably) applied towards the end of the cycle, so I guess my data isn't really relevant to your situation. Still, if I went complete in 24 hours I don't know why it seems to be taking so long for them to process your files.

It was my impression based on the varying responses that people have had to this question. I asked it a week or so back as well. I did apply late, first week in February, but its almost 6 weeks now without an email telling me I'm complete. UConn is way up on my list, its just an antsy time with cycles wrapping up.
