Thank you!!!
@shriggz, can you confirm the deposit deadline is May 1? I am trying to figure out when to send a LOCI.
Decision Made as of yesterday, no email or call yet. @shriggz, how did they contact you?
It is good to see movement on some applications.
Yes, the seat deposit is May 1.
I got the email like an hour ago, but I initially found out via status checker!
Got the email just a bit ago! Accepted!
@EmptyHeadedBehemoth: congrats!
Thanks! Status checker never updated, but got the email.
Best of luck!
@LawVenomousWizard: Did you ever hear back. I also send in an updated resume with my new job last week and did not hear anything back.
@Griff: not a word yet. Not expecting anything until closer to deposit deadline.
I’m taking a tour tomorrow and am asking about any updates for some Reddit people, I’ll update here as well what dean of admissions says.
@EmptyHeadedBehemoth: Thank you for doing that. I took a tour back in December and absolutely loved the campus and law building. I'm sure you will as well.
Dean said there are a few more acceptance letters going out in the next few weeks. I loved the community and building. Everyone was lovely, and I like the layout of everything.
Thank for providing the information. Congrats to everyone who has received their acceptances. #WPS
I got accepted this morning. I never thought it was possible with my LSAT. I am so stoked.
@Griff: congratulations!
@HulkingParallelShoe: Thank you. I am still not sure if I believe but I am so glad that the cycle is over. I never want to experience that again
@Griff: congrats dude! See ya on the hill!
@shriggz: thanks man. See ya then
Congratulations, @Griff! See you this fall; hope we're in the same section!
@EmptyHeadedBehemoth: Thanks. I do as well. My last name is Griffin. Come and find me and we can knock out the next 3 years.
My name's Joy; I'll search you out. Excited to get started! Hope we both get some good scholarships.
@LawVenomousWizard: Saw the status changed... what are you thoughts? Have you thought about sending a LOCI?
@Griff: I actuslly sent a LOCI and next day got the waitlist. So now Im just gonna hold out and see what happens.
@LawVenomousWizard: good luck, If you haven't taken a tour yet maybe trying to schedule one and show that added interest.
found out that they essentially lost my application and i applied all the way bak in November. i had to call back multiple times for it to be reviewed and they offered me a WL. i sent back a rejection letter to their wl offer lol
That’s surprising you got WL with your stats, I thought for sure you’d get in being above median.
@Iamanole: I kind of felt like thats what they did to me. Didnt hear a word, they wouldnt return calls, wouldnt return emails. I finally emailed the dean of admissions directly and asked if they lost my app and sent a loci the next day then got the WL the following day.
