Accepted last week, had been waiting since mid-December. Torn now between Case Western, Nova, and maybe Rutgers Camden.

So if I went complete 2/16, when can I expect to go under review? There's only a couple of weeks left in March.

Good news: I went into review today after being complete since early decemeber.

Bad news: This most likely means I will be rejected (which is probably good news if you are reading this since that spot will be open)



Why in world do they take so long with this stuff?

I'm definitely a splitter too. I would have to give you the slight edge though by looking at your numbers.

165/3.4

Is there something wrong here?

I already chose another school, but I still paid for a decision from Villanova...

I think that is odd its taking you that long unless you took the feb lsat/ have academic or criminal dings on your file. I would email them and ask for an update.

No Feb LSAT, no criminal record of any kind. I have heard back from about 10 other schools with no delay, so I assume that there's nothing particularly wrong with my application. I think maybe they lost my file?

I can't say but its def not the norm. Nova has about a 2 month turn around time from what I've seen and you're way past that. Maybe they know you committed somewhere else already and put it on the back burner? I would call or email them.

Thanks. I actually already emailed them about 2 weeks ago and they responded with a generic message about how they are processing applications as best they can, and I should hear a decision by early May, yadda yadda yadda. At this point I'm assuming that I will be rejected, which is fine but I just wish they would get it over with!

Yeah. It even says it on the status checker, right at the top:

We in the admissions office are busy trying to keep up with the number of applications we have received. Due to this increase in applications, the admission committee is working diligently to review each file and to render a decision for all completed applications by early May.

Wow. Considering that many other schools have their first seat deposit due in mid-April, I wonder how that's going to impact enrollment for them.

Just checked the status checker and I am "Under Review 03/13".. anyone have an idea of when I should expect a decision, or is this the kind of thing that will stay this way for a month? Went Complete 02/04.

I went "Under Review" on 3/15, and then today it changed to "Under Review" on 3/17. Thoughts?

Once I went under review, I was accepted within one day.

Once I went under review, I was accepted within one day.

After I went 'under review' I got my acceptance within a few days.
