@CombativeAngelfish: if you look at results, you can see all the UGA As (:
Did any of y'all apply for UGA Scholars?
when yall say the date disappeared do you mean under the application substatus or application status date
Status date I think that’s where the date was
Idk what it means tbh other law schools have given me a date or a status change
I just applied on December 1st, and was under reviewed on December 4th. The Application Status Date disappeared today. I'm not sure if it's a bad sign since I'm lower than both medians (3.77/160).
for folks wondering about uga scholarships, I have done SO MUCH DIGGING from last year's reddit posts and I say, with confidence, that we will get radio silence until NEXT FRIDAY when the first waves of scholarships go out
their 25th is a 156...
wrong chat lol
yeah they let like 4 people in under.
i'm at limit in main anyways lol
156 is for Class of 2025. For class of 2026, UGA's 25th LSAT is 159 lol
So with 3.77/160 LSAT I applied ED but let's see. Don't have a lot of hope lol
when are we expecting another wave?
@tigerslay: monday
My date and my communications have now both disappeared from my status checker. Anyone know if that means anything?
my communications come and go depending on refresh i don't think those mean anything
My date disappeared two days after I submitted my application. Don’t think it means anything much for UGA
