I would reach out to them and ask what exactly does that mean? and if there's anything you can do to make your application more competitive (i.e. maybe another LOR ....) Atleast its not a rejection so theres still hope :) obviously they saw something special in you..... and maybe they're just waiting on your second lsat score!

I actually spoke to someone on Wednesday and inquired about submitting a LOCI and was told they aren't asking for additional information. I know at a lot of alumni and they stated the same thing. I guess we will see! I was also told that if I'm denied with score then they would re-review my app if I get a higher score later.

I remember when I took the Feb lsat last year. Waiting was torture. Our release date was 3/3 too. They released it the day before. I got a 138 that time. i retook it though. I have a feeling you did way better and you def got loyola in the pocket.

SULC sounds nice and from what ive other from a few others its a great law schoolthat;s really interested in its student's success. Truth be told, had i not been accepted into loyola i wouldve went to sulc. But since i live in new orleans, loyola is just more convenient location wise.....As far as tulane, no i didnt submit the statement of interest or extracurricular activty....although in hindsight i probably shouldve because before i applied i spoke with an admissions rep and she highly suggested it....

Yep, you are definitely doing all the right things. I remember when the admissions rep spoke to me, she said to write about why tulane? what specifically interest you about tulane? and about how beautiful and wonderful the city of new Orleans is lol (she was serious too) hope that helps some ! good luck :)

How did you find out about your status for SU? Did you submit your app through LSAC site or SU? I'm anxious to know if I'm accepted. :-)

I think 3 weeks. It was complete on 1/31 and got a decision on 2/19. I am assuming 147 is your new score, you'll def get in with your gpa combination!hoping for the best for you!

This might sound crazy but where is this status checker thing? And when I go online to SU website it asks for login info to check law school status.

Hi my app for SU status changed today stating: Hold for further review. I saw that happened to you also. What does that mean? Did you get to speak with anyone as to the reason for that? THanks!

Hi. Did Mississippi College say you had to start the program in July? I guess it is like a "boot camp?" Thank you! Also, congrats!
