Georgia, no doubt. Especially when compared to Alabama and Emory. Even compared to Georgia State and Mercer.

seconded.  It was weird that they seemed so disorganized.  Every time I called they seemed like they were mad at me for "bothering" them.  I don't really know about them.

I called yesterday. She was nice, but was like "yeah, those letters have been on my assistant's desk all week, but she's out so they haven't been mailed yet. If you haven't received it in a week or two, then call back again." Er, what's the hold up? How long could it take to stamp them and drop them in a mailbox?

Emory, that is all. Well, they haven't been slow for everyone, just for me and a few others on this board who are really hoping to get in.

Oh and UC Davis. I think they forgot that they are supposed to start accepting people.

Haha, I heard a similar thing about my certification and fee waiver form. They'd misplaced it and apparently it was sitting on some person's desk who was not in the office at the time. UGA is a mess.

For me it's been NYU, but I think that's only because i'm going to get rejected.  Pretty much everybody else heard back right away.

I know it's a reach school, but Berkeley frustrated me.  It took 3 months to reject me, when a close look at LSN shows that most people that applied at my time were rejected or deferred months ago.  I felt as though I was in limbo. 

W&M is a close second.  I was expecting to get a fairly quick turn-around time from them, but that's law school admissions for ya.

not for the people they like.  schools tend to take 4ever if you're not an auto-admit.

I meant that it has been frustrating for me personally. That being said, I'm close to their 75s. Judging from the speed of some other acceptances, I don't think I have any red flags hiding in my apps either

I'll say Pittsburgh.  They send no record that your app is complete and have no status check.  However, their admissions office has been friendly and responsive.

The OP is right to call Texas on it's slow-playing, but at least they have a status checker (even if it never changes).  Yeee-haw!
