Any news from anyone here? I'm trying to get a hint as to when decisions are going to start coming
I haven't heard anything but I keep getting emails telling me to apply even though I already have. I'm guessing 1-2 week of december we will start seeing decisions
^^ looking at last year, they first started sending out acceptances the second week of december
yea seems this cycle is a bit slower so i'd expect first wave right before xmas break
although lsac data shows that kentucky applications are actually up from last year so maybe on on time wave
