Being a USD undergrad, I decided to go into the law school admissions office and ask when to expect to hear from them. I was hoping for something like "Oh, we have your letter right here! Take it!" but of course I only got "You'll get a response anytime between now and mid-May." Hmm, so they have told people beginning of April, mid-April... soon it is going to be mid-September. If verbal contracts were binding, USD would be in a world of trouble by now.
