Hang in there... Lots of schools haven't sent replies out yet. I'm waiting on 3 which is probably on the low side. A lot if people are waiting on 3,4,5, or more.

Yes, don't worry.  No news is good news.  As frustrating as it is, at least you know you haven't been rejected!  That should give you some comfort.  This has been said in other threads, but most law schools are handling a large amount of applications this year.  So, it's no surprise that law schools are taking a longer time making a decision.

Goodluck to you!

I heard back from one school 1 1/2 weeks after submitting my app. I haven't heard from anyone else for well over a month. Just try to keep busy for the next couple of weeks and not think about it (yeah... right).

I have 2 apps out there submitted in NOVEMBER that I am still waiting to hear from.  I called a week ago and they said it would be sometime in May that they'd let me know.  There is just no rhyme or reason to any of it.

If you are admitted late in the game (because u applied late in the game) then your deadline for returning a deposit would be shifted back to give you a good reasonable amount of time to decide!!

Good luck!!

sending stuff out in early march isnt early at all. It isnt a surprise at all you havent heard yet.  You are probably really borderline, even as a good student since a lot of qualified people had their stuff in and got decisions before you even sent your stuff in
Shouldn't have waited so long

Yeah, early March is pretty late, even if their deadline was April 15. Keep in mind that this is a record year for law school applicants, so sending in your app as early as possible is even more critical now than it has been in the past. So yeah, you shouldn't be too surprised that you haven't heard from them. I'm waiting on applications that I sent in early to mid January, and others are still waiting on applications they sent in November!
