I'm guessing that it's because it's so early in the cycle. I don't go to school there.

And the fee waiver showed up on the last step before submitting the app. You can actually check for it through LSDAS that way. Good luck this cycle!

  • After the fact..

The Duke status check email came this morning (monday), even though I got the acceptance on Sunday. Scholarship stuff won't come out until much later, I think.

  • Chicago fee waiver
  • Wednesday, September 26 2007 at 07:23 PM

Actually, I didn't receive any notification whatsoever about the Chicago fee waiver. I only found out once I went to the app submission page, and found that the fee was waived. You can check on LSAC to see if you've got one too without actually submitting the app. The Duke status checker said that my status was changed the day after I submitted my app. Good luck!

  • Soon hopefully?
  • Thursday, September 27 2007 at 09:48 PM

By received, I meant that they requested my report from LSAC. Is that what you mean or did they actually contact you?

I don't recall exactly when but it was nearly a month ago. It was a merit waiver.

Opps. Looks like I'm probably mistaken about being complete. I had put that because they have received all the LSAC materials, but now I realize that I'm probably not "complete" until they notify me of that status. I wouldn't worry about it too much. I've heard of people being accepted without every having been told that their application is complete.

That early Duke acceptance must feel great! When/how did Northwestern notify you about the fee waiver? I'd like one of those, too - wonder whether they'd give me one for asking nicely.

- funkyduck

Thanks for the info - I just emailed NW. Good luck on all your apps!

No, no interview. I'm trying not to get my hopes up, since my gpa is low for Harvard. You never know though...

I'm in education...was teaching, now advocating. Harvard and I have a history (as in they've rejected me before - since then I've gotten a brand new LSAT score (other one was a few points lower and 4.5 years old), a new job, and completed a master's - I'm hoping one of those plus applying early (versus January) will make a difference)

- sandphire
  • I know!

The past two Fridays, I've just been refreshing my email in futile hope. Maybe next week for us?

Congrats on Texas. I'm in today as well. For the previous poster, it was via phone call, and my status has not changed.

the scholarship notification came via letter within a week after the acceptance package. Congrats on your acceptance! it looks like you'll have lots of great schools to choose from :)

  • HLS email
  • Tuesday, December 04 2007 at 08:00 AM

Have you heard from HLS for an email yet? I think they're being picky about the GPA, because all their acceptances so far have high GPA. Good luck and Congrats on the Texas Scholarship.

- eclectcism
  • HLS email
  • Thursday, December 06 2007 at 05:48 AM

I never got the email. Apparently he sent it last week but my school's server was down and I never got it. He called me this week. I was kind of shocked and unprepared. I may be evidence that the phone call this early does not mean acceptance. I think he must be scouting me for his waitlist. They seem really intent on the 3.90+ gpas right now.

- eclectcism

On NYU!

On your acceptances so far - more to come, of course! Best of luck.

  • Friday, January 11 2008 at 10:40 AM

Yeah, I think that is what happened too. One of my LORs was even from a Michigan Law alum, so I was a little surprised by it. At least we both have lots of other great schools to choose from. Good luck on all the rest!

  • Columbia
  • Tuesday, January 29 2008 at 02:25 PM

Hopefully it won't be another deferral like Michigan. I'm not really sure what to think because it seems like a lot of people have gotten them. But I got my official NYU packet two weeks after the date on the letter, so hopefully the mail is just taking a long time from New York. Good luck and hopefully it will be good news for both of us! :) I noticed we've got matching UT scholarships too. Are you a TX resident too?

- PinkTiki
  • Columbia
  • Wednesday, January 30 2008 at 09:42 AM

I don't think that's a deferral, hopefully they're just taking a little longer with you. Good luck!

  • Tuesday, February 05 2008 at 12:20 PM

I'm starting to view this process as rather cruel. I've heard absolutely nothing, which can't be a good sign. But I haven't been deferred yet. Or rejected. And I really just wish they'd get to it, or at least send a hold email to let me know they've still got my application, though I'm in favor of final decisions these days, good or bad. And nothing from Columibia yet either...

  • Harvard/NU
  • Thursday, February 07 2008 at 01:59 PM

My held email must have been close behind :) I sent NU my actual tax return, priority mail because it just seemed wrong to send my tax info regular mail. I submitted both the FAFSA and Need Access on 1/31 - which was the date I finally had all my tax info. It took about 6 hours total, filing and forms all that night. When I originally asked about the deadline, they said get the FAFSA and Need Access in, worry about taxes later, if necessary. If you can get a close estimate, you might as well send it in. If you can't, it's probably not worth having to correct it later in order to send it in now, unless you'll miss the deadline. They recommend having the forms submitted by Feb 1, since it takes some time to process, but obviously mine didn't take more than a few days. And a belated congrats on Chicago!

I showed them my Darrow letter. They didn't commit to a change right away - basically saying they would consider it, but offered the increase later.

Hey numbers twin, looks like we\'ll both be going to the same school too. I\'ll be deferring for a year but hope you have fun at CLS this fall.
