Help us make LSD better!
Tell us what's important to you
boo im sorry to hear that :/ def send a LOCI if they're your top pick!
I feel like the WL is the "we will get you a quick answer" stall. I guess better than an R.
Looks like we have a small wave so far. But they’re all high LSATS and non week 12s so that’s something
They are trickling in... was hoping for a big wave today
They keep saying they are behind. I don’t buy it. They are just being selective on decisions to raise their means
AAM, have you sent a LOCI yet?
feel like we have been waiting around the same amount and I honnestly might next week
I’ve emailed them twice now too
They’ve said the same thing
AAM, just that theyre behind?
Yup they said they’re running behind and to contact them again in a few weeks. They literally told me that two weeks ago.
@AbjectAvailableMilk: I also don't buy it..they are working around to select higher stats before they do more typically waves which leaves the bulk of us waiting around weeks on end
So is Wisconsin just going to keep telling applicants that they are behind schedule in mid March?
What about in June? Same thing?
The lack of communication is bothering me, I know some people got the email to "Hold in there" but not everyone.. like I didnt?
If they are running this far behind they should be communicating wiith all applicants
Last cycle, I knew people who applied in December and heard back in February!
It’s so frustrating!
I know- they let the high scores in immediately. Crickets for everyone else. I think they are playing with the stats/ ranking numbers very hard.
If I don’t hear anything in the next two weeks or so I’m probably going to go somewhere else. Schools need to hear back soon for deposits.
Same here. The lack of communication gives me concern over their service if I did attend
Did y’all get an email at 3am?
“ University of Wisconsin Law School: The Seasons of Madison, WI”
aside from the interview invite the last email i've gotten from them was in november lmao
if i don't hear back soon after the interview i'm tempted to just withdraw because i'd like to start finding apartments and paying deposits sooner rather than later
Where are you going?
same !! some of my acceptances definitely require a lot of relocation planning so I am getting anxious as all my other friends/roommates are making their next lease plans & I cant do anything yet
i'm looking at going to uiuc or kent, which means i'll have to move out of state which i'd like to be able to start planning for lmao
Bro are these folks even alive?
Can they just mass accept and get it over with?.
