Anyone hear from NYLS or Pace today?
Has anyone else been accepted through the status checker but not received an email?
Has any As been sent out? Going on my 7th week waiting 🫠
did anyone get accepted
I got an A yesterday
I plugged in their normal 40k/scholly, and with living costs and everything else, I'd be $600 short every month lol So I'm gonna have to turn them down unless they raise the scholly to ~$58k or more
I gave them a call specifying that I applied in September and have heard nothing since going under review, and the admissions office representative sent an A email a little later.
@cucumbermelonn: I applied to NYLS on Jan 1 and heard back Jan 22 - not as much scholly as I wouldve hoped but im holding out for other schools
Thank you @soccer2023, I just hit 8 weeks UR so I guess I’m meant to play the waiting game 😭
Congrats on your A!!!
got my A at like 9:30 last night
I applied to NYLS back the first week of Dec and my application has been waiting for 2 months now to be reviewed. Unsure of when I should reach out to them. I don't want to be pushy put seat deposits are stressing me out.
Yeah I’ve been ur since early Dec and reached out a few times, just keeping hearing that some results will be soon
I got WL :(
Hey that’s not bad! Could’ve been a rejection! When did you apply?
Hey if it makes you guys feel better, I applied in October, got waitlisted in December, and I'm in the top 6 for LSAT score among applicants reported here on LSD. It doesn't always make sense I'd say.
