im still waiting and applied 9/4.... lol
oop you win lol
it is blowing my mind that they have not responded to us yet, other schools have decision deadlines on the 15th and we won't even have a response back
Schnoodle
18:21
Yeah its actually outrageous and pretty rude! If its a no, just say no. Why string people along... especially when they spent money on this application.

Poor business practice in my opinion

im debating calling and asking if i can expect a decision before the April 15th deadline of most other schools but im afraid they’ll just become even more annoyed with me - which i honestly shouldn’t care about since they’ve shown they don’t care about me as an applicant

The College of Law seeks to admit and enroll students who, together, bring to the law school a varied set of backgrounds, interests, personal and professional experiences and perspectives, who also have a record of academic success and a competitive LSAT score. Other factors considered include exceptional personal talents, interesting or demanding work experience, rigorousness of undergraduate course study, leadership potential, graduate study, maturity and the ability to communicate effectively. An applicant's responses to the character and fitness questions in the application is also a significant factor in the decision-making process. Although a holistic approach is taken when reviewing applications, if you do not have at least a 165 LSAT, you are garbage and do not deserve any courtesy or response.

For what it’s worth I called in early March to see if they would give me an answer before my April 1st deposit deadline at another school. They told me they would…and obviously didn’t. So it seems as if calling and asking doesn’t help lol
14:11
My thoughts are their class is full, and are waiting until after April 15th
18:13
You might be right. I didn't realize their class size is only like 110.
18:14
Wish they would just WL us then.
13:56
Why is there class size sooo small? For a state school it’s so weird

16:21
Lol. I did an interview with them and the exact principle was stated to me. Heavy emphasis on 165 or bust, other heavy emphasis on first gen law student.
15:53
Just withdrew my app with no decision. No point is getting an R/WL if class is full.
22:12
The lack of decisions this cycle is really odd
22:13
There were a lot more waitlists this time last year as well, seems to me only ED only really has received waitlist decisions but I could be completely wrong
Yeah there was like 0 pending this time last year, everyone got like dumped on the WL within a couple days
Guys, is it too late to apply
11:24
Nope. Their priority deadline passed but you have til July I believe to apply!
UnableBreakableHamster
14:50
Since they don't respond to applications with LSATs below 165, I think if your LSAT is below that there is no deadline. They will gladly take your application fee and then ignore you.
With all the withdraws does anyone think they will give more scholarships to others after the seat deposit?
9:33
You should be able to ask for reconsideration at that point I would think
21:25
they went to the top of my lawhub today, hopefully I get a decision soon
13:09
Accepted!

They strongly dislike second gen+ law students, double Nole’s, and applicants who are not at or above both medians. They are okay ab splitters.
13:54
Lot of double noles not getting in this cycle
