Tell us what's important to you
@UnderstoodFlakyMongoose: congratulations! Did you apply for the hybrid or regular program?
Regular program
I've been under review since 11/30
screw this school
Did UNH really make a decision today?
@TheDoood: ever hear anything?
How long does it take to get the email after tracker goes green?
Does anyone know if they only call for schollys?
Nah, still haven't heard a thing from them
Looks like they had acceptances yesterday and today. Some people are getting acceptances within weeks of submission. Lame-o
@sadboihappychill: I heard they call for everyone, and that they tell you that your scholly info will be included in an email or something
@TheDoood: thank you!! I got my A today via tracker but no call or email yet. I hope you hear back soon!!
got my A today, via email & phone call!!! :) anyone know if there's an admitted students group on Facebook or something?? Congrats to everyone else who have gotten A's!!!
@Daffodil2700: Hi! Congratulations! There is a discord for admitted students (you can find the link on the r/lsa subreddit!)
Did anyone here have luck negotiating their scholly?
@sadboihappychill: thank you so much! would you be able to DM me the link? I cant find it
@Daffodil2700: just DM'd!
Anybody else been waiting months on UNH? I feel like the 5th wheel. Either take me home or dump me!
Anyone have luck negotiating? I submitted my fasfa after they awarded me merit scholarships so I’m still waiting to see if anything changes with that as well
@sadboihappychill: I’m sorry to bother you but would you be able to DM it to me too please?
@KatD: hi! I just saw this. I've DM'd you!
@TheDoood: I really hope you hear soon!
@TheDoood: that is unfortunate and discouraging since I still haven't applied Lol
my trash LSATs have made me a late applicant twice, once to really just one school as a "lets see what happens" and this year as my first real "Fire the torpedoes" barrage of applications
I'm applying to hybrid programs, and may throw 1-2 "For fun" out there just to say that I had applied to them. I feel that a lot of us non-trad. applicants shooting for hybrids really are weird in that some of us already make more than what a lot of lawyers make in their first 2-5 years
idk, maybe that's not weird but presents limiting scenarios on choosing where to attend lol
Hii so apparently unh has a liberal policy for allowing professors to not grade on the curve. Does anyone know or have any idea how frequently that is actually applied where there isn’t a curve ?
Just got an A today!!!! Via status checker :)
My only A!
This the one I wanted, though. Hybrid program is key
