Applied a month ago and not even in review yet...
I applied in Dec but just took Feb LSAT and it says my application is not complete til I get my score UGH
I already submitted a score but took it again
@LawSchoolFinder: same thing happened to me. I applied on 01/31/24 with my Jan score but was already registered to take Feb. I got an email that my file was complete and in review a few days after applying but then I got a new email about a week later saying it was back to incomplete until my Feb score. Which I just got today (obvi) and it IS THE EXACT SAME SCORE lol. so they held on to my app for no reason haha
How long did it take to go Under Review at Drake? My application status has been stuck at Ready For Review for nearly 4 weeks!
12:58
My app did not move at all on LawHub. I just got the notif and the status said "Decision Rendered" and told me to check my email.
@Cbean: thank you! That's helpful info to have!!

Is there an admitted student Groupme?
12:28

Ok so it sounds like seat deposits are already due, but I haven't heard back yet. I applied late, but does this mean I didn't get in?
