Decision rendered. Hoping for an email soon.
Do you have deposit information on your portal? Mine had due dates for deposits and official transcript at the bottom before the email
Y'all who've been acceptated what was your LSAT/GPA?
Look they were accepted by the ABA again - it's not really an issue bc the new donor "J. Rosenberg" goes to students and staff - the building is being paid for my normal university money and tuition. Don't worry about it
Also, I was accepted near the tail end of their waitlist this past admissions run - Jan is when they're almost out of scholarship money so if you get accepted then don't expect much $$$
11:41
@SlipperyColossalPika: What is typically the timeframe for the end of the waitlist? I get that this is a slower cycle than some previous ones, but they're holding my app in review for what seems like forever.

BeautifulSeahorse
16:37
they are really good lucrative, not only that but they have new facilities and it looks they reject and waitlisting applicants that would have been admitted in previous cycles. i think kentucky is going to move up in the rankings.
@BeautifulSeahorse: spivey says otherwise (60 to 63)
