Thanks! I only sent one on 2/9. Got a call today from a 3L but won’t be able to attend since I did not receive any aid. Good luck!
@NarrowGrasshopper: Congrats!! The last LOCI I sent was end of March and still haven't heard back since
Did anyone apply Honors Early Decision and got the decision already?
I applied to honors ED
did anyone else get a school tracking number??
Kaput did you get deferred from ED as well?
same here. it’s ok
Status date changed today but still says UR lol
Starting to think that I messed up forgetting to do the optional interview
@wealthofnations: I didn’t do the interview and I just got an A with $$$$! You are completely okay I promise! :)
Just got the A with Dean's Scholarship!
What a relief it is to know I can go to law school and graduate without debt. Phew!
Good to hear, appreciate the response! Congrats!!!
Did you both have a status change on the status checker prior to the acceptance?
@wealthofnations: I did not receive a status change other than the acceptance itself
@wealthofnations: I went under review last week. I only received a jump scare email that said I was accepted. No link to a letter.
Nice, appreciate you both - and congrats again!! Awesome school with epic scholarships.
@wealthofnations: Thanks! And best of luck to you! Really hope you get in with a great scholly
come to sju y'all, 11/10 school
I got waitlisted lol brutal
@wealthofnations: SENDING SO MUCH ❤️ YOUR WAY. Manifesting so many A’s for you
@jakerocksbig: appreciate you! Already have a few, so not the end of the world for me. I guess the rankings jump for St Johns made things more competitive. This low GPA hurts me even with nKJD status.
Oh nooooo
All good! Your A will come!
If not SJU, then somewhere else :)
If I applied on 12/2 when should I expect a decision?
