Still havent heard back from 5 schools...ridiculous
« on: April 18, 2008, 01:03:28 AM »
This wait is driving me up the wall. I guess its cool that I have not gotten rejected yet (to the best of my knowledge), but what are they waiting for? I had to send a seat deposit for RWU and I do not know if I definitely want to go there. The deposit was due the 15th of April, so I had really no choice, just in case I did not get in anywhere else.

Is it me, or do they make you wait, and wait, and wait, and wait some more?

was wondering if it is a good strategy to send LOCI to schools that you have not heard from. any suggestions?

Have you checked in with them, maybe an email or something?

Yeah I've yet to hear back from half of my schools as well ... I took a gamble and withdrew from schools with an April 15th deposit before hearing from others ... Just got into Villanova yesterday so the gamble has paid off thus far.

I called all of them once, and heard that they hadn't looked at the file yet, would soon.

I'm sure not all 6 schools are sleeping on the wheel.  It's more like these schools are reaches for you and your numbers are just not competitive enough.  But you may get lucky the week before school starts if someone drops out.  So keep you hopes up.  If anything, you can always retake the LSAT and apply again next year.

Im still waiting on 2.  You'll probably hear within a week or 2.  I just got like 5 or 6 in the last couple weeks.  But you should probably expect lots of WL's.
