I sent my app in early November and haven't heard a thing since.

I don't think it's necessarily them sending out decisions late. The problem is they don't have any kind of status checker to see your application's progress and haven't sent out any emails saying you are in review or anything. We just need to keep watching out mailboxes, which in my opinion is the worst kind of waiting since you truly have no idea when a decision might come.

Applied late October. No word. I'm expecting to hear back within the next few weeks....they can't leave us hanging for THAT much longer.

I just did a little research on the website and apparently St. John's is on spring break this week. I don't know if this means the admissions office is closed, but if so, next week will probably be a quiet week since no decisions will have been sent out this week. Any acceptances people have been getting this week were probably sent out last week.

I called today to see if my updated transcript had been received and someone was there to respond so admissions is apparently open.

I received a letter of acceptance February 8 and went complete Jan 17th.
$22,500 scholarship if I stay in top 1/2 of the class
This is my first acceptance and I'm real excited but I'm not in love with Jamaica Queens.

If I were you, I'd apply to higher ranked schools. With your numbers I wouldn't be surprised if you got into fordham pt..

Congradulations anyway...

I heard from a bee that apps were up 500% this year, as people want to be the next basis for a Mariah Carey independent film role. Would explain why St. John's is taking so long.

Just got a nice call from a Dean @ St. John's encouraging me to accept their offer. I dunno, the more I think about it, despite my acceptances at higher ranked schools, free sounds more and more appealing.

Imagine leaving law school without 100K in debt?

Wow - with your stats, I would have bet an admit for sure. The number of apps to St. John's must have really skyrocketed this year. Good luck.

I got that call as well, except I sent them a withdrawal email about 3 weeks ago...
