the law school app process may be the greatest scam of all tim
my paragraph says most people would hear back by mid-march
any Jan apps hear back yet?
I don't understand they process they take.
Deposit deadline is April 15. They might be waiting to issue more A's until they see how many people pay their seat deposit.
Any people believe we will get a wave today considering its good friday
my sub status disappeared
@brokengraygoat Woohoo! Fingers crossed for you!
after an almost 5 month wait i’m not surprised
@BrokenGrayGoat: wah wah. Boo to them - I feel you though 5 months for a WL blows.
Status says mid March for most decisions… now April and nothing 😭
My app moved to the top of my law hub I’m expecting a decision this week
Moved to top of law hub just now (4/8)
Maybe decisions today as they usually do Mondays?
Hopefully 🤞 it’s the last school I’m waiting on
Waitlisted oh whale
Awww I am so sorry to hear! I am sure something else is meant to be, and that school will be the right thing for you! May I ask when you heard from them?
Of course! I had it go to the top of my law hub this morning and about 10 minutes ago is when I got my decision
Applied mid January
Okay, thank you! Again, it must be frustrating, but it seems from your profile you have some other really good options, and a lot of times things do depend a bit on luck. You will be a lawyer, and I wish you the best on your journey!
Is anyone else struggling to decide whether to attend this university vs W&L?
@WearyVictoriousKingfisher: i was but then went to ASD and decided W&L is superior to Richmond. The students at Richmond dont seem very happy with their experience.
@Pandally: can you elaborate? we went to different ASDs and I didn't get that impression. Did you talk to students outside of the ones helping with the event?
@Pandally: Just curious as I'm about to make the final decision to attend.
@Letsdothisoveragain: yes. I did a separate tour that was a lot smaller and spoke to different students
@Letsdothisoveragain: I just submitted my withdrawal from the pool of admitted students - hopefully that opens a spot for someone that does want to attend!
