I kept waiting for the rejection letter (since october) and I finally got it today. Chances are good I'll be at cornell!

I'm still waiting on Penn and Duke. Duke handed out a bunch of decisions last week and I got nothing. I called Penn a few days ago for a time frame and no decision had been made. I'm pretty sure that in my EA deferral letter it said I was guaranteed a decision by April 1st (of course I can't find said letter but I'm pretty sure that's right!)
I got in EA but withdrew. I did visit in November for an open house and was SO IMPRESSED with the faculty and students. If you're interested in public interest work, Northeastern is fantastic. Everyone there seemed to have such a great sense of mission. Good luck!!

I understand that they're behind and I work in enrollment so I know how easy that is. However, they should have sent most of us SOMETHING letting us know what was going on. I have been complete since October! I really want to withdraw and I probably won't go there, honestly, but I feel like I've hung in there so long, I can make it another month! I'm just curious enough to hear what they have to say.

Duke is definitely on my sh*t list. And I know they're on many. I've been complete since October, got the "deferral" e-mail in December and NOTHING since then. I really want to withdraw (I'll probably be at Cornell or BU anyways) but I'm just curious enough.
BC for rejecting me. I shouldn't have been a question there but oh well!
That's about it actually. Michigan waitlisted me (which was actually a welcome surprise) and they were the NICEST.
None of the faculty I met were uber-conservative at all. The way they described the religious aspect of ND was that, unlike other law schools where the topic of religion and morals might be more taboo, if religion is brought up, they don't shy away from it. It is true that the NDLS website does not link to pro-choice organizations and other liberal entities that are against the church's position. BUT it's not hard to find those resources either. You can easily find links to pro-choice organizations from other means, just not from the career services page. That's just something that they respect.
I've had a lot of issues with the Christian right lately and did not feel the least bit uncomfortable. Yes, there were a few extremists (I met one, actually) but very few.
I'm a liberal atheist for the most part and I didn't feel uncomfortable at the admitted student day. I actually met quite a few students who weren't religious. They did say it wasn't a good school for those who are against organized religion (which I'm not) because the catholicism is definitely present but students can be as involved or not involved as they'd like. I liked Cornell better for other reasons but I wouldn't be scared off too much by ND's politics. It's nothing like Regent.
