Help us make LSD better!
Tell us what's important to you
i get the frustration though
when did you apply?
Early November, a couple weeks before you. It will be fine. I'm deposited somewhere good, WL at both places you are showing WL and some others. I'll end up where I'm supposed to.
as far as i can tell they like look at apps by descending LSAT/GPA. kinda weird
Question- If I submitted my app 10 weeks ago, is it too early to send a LOCI. I am an undergrad alum and it’s my first choice if that makes a difference.
I mean do what you see fit. I waited until I was 15/16 weeks in but this late I’d probably go ahead and send in your shoes
should we send semi-loci at this point? I went UR on march 8, and the seat deposit was 3/31, haven't heard any
Seat deposit is assigned later for later admits. Mine was a little bit into April.
Decided to just send it in. Thanks
It took OSU 7 months and a reminder email from that they hadn't given me a decision yet to send me the R.
Thanks for giving me the WL decision a month after most deadlines
Gotta love the admissions process
that's messed up sorry
it seems according to lsd that osu haven't gotten to most feb applicants. i applied late march. should I be somewhat hopeful?
gonna be honest i wouldn't bank on an A from a late cycle application
it's possible. depends on a number of factors relative to that individual school to which none of us are privy
there are late cycle As all the time
Not common for OSU in previous cycles which is why I said it
Last reported As last year were late May
Late April for 2022 cycle
Law School Data should be Some Law School Data. There may be late As since the overwhelming majority of applicants don’t report on LSD. For a school like OSU, you
might have late cycle As that people don’t report. It’s harder to extrapolate late in cycle, especially with limited or no data
I haven't gotten a decision from the school yet
when did you apply?
Anyone on the WL hear anything?
Applied first week of feb got a wl 3 weeks ago and nothing yet. With August 9th now less than a month a way and from what I’ve been hearing majority of ppl on the wl haven’t got decisions so they are going to have to give us answers soon. I can’t imagine a school giving a person a week notice before law school starts that they got in.
@Sharkiana223: did you hear back?
Nope. You?
