Ding @ Depaul
« on: December 14, 2004, 10:08:51 PM »
Thought it was one of my "safeties."  3.3/156.  Sent October 28. Called on Friday to see if it was complete.  I was told that it was in committee and that I would hear in 2 weeks or less.  Got the reject letter on Monday. At least she wasn't lying about the 2 weeks or less.  I hope thios isn't a sign of things to come.  Hope you all fare better.

What are they smoking? Those aren't bad numbers for that school. GPA is solid and the LSAT is decent enough. Geez. Really sorry to hear about that.

I agree.  Tough luck man.  I'm sure there will be a few acceptances in that mailbox as well.

I'm surprised! Sorry about that. I'm sure the acceptances are on their way.

Sorry to hear it!  I'll be looking for my rejection letter from DePaul today or tomorrow.  I'm left to wonder just WTF they're looking for in applicants.  Sometimes I think they're just sitting there with a coin calling "Heads you're in, tails you're not!"

I would say that the numbers they look for are usually higher than what would make you think "third-tier".

Good luck on your other schools.

It might be a good time to rethink your safeties. In my guess you fall into the median levels of both GPA and LSATs.  I try to make at least one of these above the 75% mark, just in case...  Just an opinion, take it for what it's worth. Good luck!

Sorry to hear about the dings.

I'm waiting to hear from DePaul as well (I applied to the part-time day program)...can either of you tell me when you went complete, or when they LSAC sent your reports?

Good luck with your other schools!

Sorry to hear about the ding at Depaul. One of my friends in Chicago who had similar numbers and a lot of work experience in international relations was also denied acceptance. We were both shocked that he did not get accepted. Just his work experience alone is amazing.

Good luck!

Thanks all.  I'm not sure what happened either.  Oh well,  on to the next one. 

HankieB,

 I'm not sure when I went complete.  I applied in late October and called last Friday.  They said I was complete but didn't say when I went complete.  They requested my report on November 16.
