I'll let yall know when I get a decision. I'm expecting to hear back in the next 2 weeks
how do you login to the status check
It's a link through your lsac login
I got my login to the ASO checker about 2-3 weeks after I applied. Then I quickly went into review on the 19th. Assuming I will hear soon after the change on my page.
mine changed on the 10th the 23rd A on the 26th
Oh wow, so I should hear very soon
[] Snippy7
the lsac login one doesn't work for me for some reason
[] Snippy7
@peasantdrama: I guess it just depends who you get on the phone lol
@Snippy7: lsat log in and lsu log in don't work for status checker bc they're gonna send you a unique user and password for the status checker once you go complete
Okay so i applied Nov 2 and got an update jan 10th but it has been under review for a while. Is this normal?
I feel like ive been waiting for forever and im just getting restless
@PresentNondescriptCondor: i would call because everyone else who applied in november seems to have heard back already, as have most people who applied in dec. i also heard some people say last year that lsu lost their application until they called
So I called and they said if I don’t hear back by March 1st then call back….i hope that doesn’t spell bad news
My under review title went away. Now it just says they looked at it feb 8
@PresentNondescriptCondor: did yours say "in review" or did it say "with the committee"? also i think the status change sometiems preceded a decision
It said Update: Status Under Review. It’s been with the committee bec my app was completed in December
Since Feb 8 the update section at the very top has gone away so it’s just left with my name at the top with my address and stuff
thats weird because mine doesnt say "underview". it just says "application is complete and with committee"
I really have no idea what is happening. I don’t even know if I’ll get in
I have a 154 and a 3.2
@PresentNondescriptCondor: they are probably waiting to see how many applicants they get before making a decision. i know this sucks BUT you are still within the 25th percentile for LSAT, so i really wouldn't worry too much
It does but I'm doing my best to be patient. Lsu is my alma mater so I can only hope and pray for now
@PresentNondescriptCondor: that will help a lot!!
Do you know how to guess when the next wave is?
wednesday. maybe this wednesday or maybe the first wednesday of march
Wow okay
Fingers crossed
Any news?
is there an admitted students chat:)
