How long does it usually take for a decision to be made?

Don't know if this will help anyone get a general idea. My file was marked complete on 2/5, and a decision was made on 3/8. And finally today my status checker is saying a scholarship mail has just been mailed. I hope they give me a good amount, I cannot afford sticker...

I don't think it'd take too long for those of you who are still waiting to hear, good luck!!!

I may get some flak for this question but here goes:
Does Hofstra's #100 ranking bother anyone? Does TLS' review bother anyone? So far, I've gotten into Hofstra and Gonzaga which tie in rankings with Hofstra's median starting income at 3x that of Gonzaga. I'm not sure how the rest of my cycle is going to turn out, but I'm curious to hear from the people that are seriously considering Hofstra's opinions about the seemingly sub-par attitude towards the school. Is it really that bad? Is it really in the ghetto of Long Island?

I think rankings are somewhat irrelevant in this case... The two schools are a country apart... First off, you have to consider the COL of Hofstra compared to Gonzaga... Median Salary is going to be much higher simply because it costs alot more to live in Hofstra's region.... I have not visited Hofstra so I cannot say anything about the area but I do think you should consider WHERE you want to practice when you graduate... This should be a deciding factor.... Not USNEWS rankings... FI, if either schools drops to T3 or moves up, what really changes???? nothing...IMHO

If you don't mind me asking what your stats are? did you only apply to the full-time program or to the part-time as well?

Just checked status checker to see if anything about a potential scholly was up and...bam, "Honors Scholarship Letter." Super-excited, depending on the sum Hofstra may be back in the running. It took them a whole month after accepting me to send me scholly info. So, for those of you waiting for some scholly news and they haven't heard anything back yet...wait about a month. :D

Would calling the admissions office be helpful or do we have to wait for the snail mail?
