What to do if you're waiting for a response

Post by webbjl » Tue Mar 24, 2020 11:17 pm

I was wondering if anyone had any advice on what to do if you've heard nothing from law schools, aside from the initial status check email that acknowledges receipt of your application. In other words, if I'm not waitlisted or in a "hold" status, is there anything I can do to continue to emphasize my desire to attend "____" Law School? A simple solution would be to schedule an official in-person visit, but due to the current environment surrounding COVID-19 that obviously is not possible. I feel like it may be pre-mature to submit a LOCI to schools without being in a waitlist or hold status? Or should I try to remain patient until the common first deposit deadline on or about 15 April? Any and all advice would be incredibly helpful. Thank you.

Remain patient. And unless you have something worth sending an update about, don't send an update.

FYI: Most (all?) schools have policies that prevent them from considering in-person visits in your admissions decision. And since LSAT/GPA are 95% of the equation, a visit would have almost no impact even without those policies.
