Same as Drew here. In at USC by snail mail (which takes a week to arrive by the way). I bet they used the same small white envelopes for rejection too. The letter says the "real" package (with financial aid and other information) will arrive in a few days.

Good luck everyone!

IN AT USC!

Only took them a gazillion years. By snail mail. No word of scholarship.

In at UCLA via phone call tonight... my first phone call experience. I think I was awkward. but it was still exciting!
I NEVER answer calls from numbers not programmed in my phone. I think this will stave off the inevitable awkwardness... assuming I get a phone call acceptance
Yeah... I've started screening my calls now that professors and current students keep calling my phone. I'll let them leave a message...  :D

Sugar, did you get a Cornell call tonight? I missed a call from that area code.

Congrats to all of today's acceptances! I'm still really encouraged to hear they're still coming in--and from really great schools too.

Okay, detective skills in action. I've been screening my calls, and I got a 607 area code call at like 7:15. I quickly googled the area code, and it showed western NY. I decided to pick up, and it was a survey thing about law schools, where you're applying, what you think of the process, etc.  ??? I was really annoyed on the phone and was like "HOW did you get my number??" Apparently they got the numbers of all people that took the LSAT. Then I asked how long it would take, and when he said 20 minutes, I vetoed and hung up.

You probably got that call too! A 607 area code (which I just now realized is Cornell) in the evening! Now that I'm thinking about it... it seems kinda sketchy. Maybe it's a Cornell adcomm calling all the Cornell admits to find out where else we're considering!  :D :D

Did you do the survey?

Weird... I just googled the phone number and the first 6 digits (including area code) are from Ithaca...

I didn't do the survey, told them I had a phone call coming, didn't feel like dealing with it, they want to call me back tomorrow...

Got the same call...607 is Cornells area code but im not sure they are related.  The company is "wdma market research", they asked me my lsat score/gpa, where I applied, and if I had requested information about certain schools (villanova, brooklyn, a few others), though I declined to answer or was vague in most cases.  The number is 607-330-5300 for those that are curious.  The real question, I suppose, is whether or not non-Cornell applicants recieved such a phone call.

I don't mean to sound like a snot but has anyone else not heard from schools that they should have gotten into and that they've have seen other people get into who applied after I did and had much lower stats?  My particular school is AU.  I've gotten into more competitive schools (BU, BC, WM, Emory) but have not heard a peep from AU since I went complete back in early December.  I really like AU for their International Law program and am getting nervous.
