Well, I called them a couple weeks ago just to check on the status. They told me a decision would probably come around thanksgiving. I'm a little low there and was waitlisted last year. So, I'm hoping things will go differently. I know I would love it there. I really like that they encourage you to check on the status of your application via telephone. With other schools I always wonder if I'm breaking some cardinal rule or something by checking because most of the time they seem put off. Anyways, congratulations on Marquette. That is so great! Hopefully I'll have something to celebrate soon too!

Hopefully work experience will count for quite a bit! Congrats to you as well and I can't wait to see how this plays out for us both.

Nope, seemed like last year they sent out scholarship information after Xmas. The letter said there'd be more information to follow, but alas, I've gotten none :( I'm excited to take a visit there. I have a few friends who currently go there (law school and undergrad), but I've never had the chance to tour any of it. Let's hope they don't make us wait too long.

I am still awaiting a follow-up letter fomr Marquette! I also called Depaul and was told that they don't send out complete letters, but my file is being reviewed as we speak!

I got a phone call from the Dean. Just an FYI, my graduate degree is from Loyola so that may have helped.

I got a msg on my cell today from a Dean there with a 'holiday present.' I am sure you will hear soon enough! Good luck!

Nope. I called earlier in the week and I just said so, "I can expect a decision in the normal two to three weeks?" The guy hesitated and said, "Yeah, that's right." So, I know I've been under review there for three or four weeks already. I'm hoping that I will get somethign today or tomorrow. I feel ill with anticipation. I completely understand your anxiety. I'm sick, especially since they already told me at the beginning of November that I would probably get something around thanksgiving. Blah.

  • Congrats Too!
  • Thursday, December 06 2007 at 03:44 PM

Hey Congrats on your acceptance as well..although UIUC isnt in my first choice..the scholarship money is making it very tempting..

- herogirl
  • UIUC
  • Thursday, December 06 2007 at 04:53 PM

Congrats on that acceptance! just curious, did your status checker change before you got the acceptance? mine has said 'currently in review' for 2 weeks now, the anticipation is killing me

- jjw27
  • UIUC!

Congrats on Illinois! Great school, must feel [email protected]

I'm really jealous of your UIUC acceptance. I haven't heard anything from them yet. Congrats and thanks for the comment! Don't worry, I pay no attn to the haters : )

Yeah, I was a little concerned about life there as well, but I've been looking around and it seems ok, even though I would much rather be in a large city. Unless I get into UCLA I'll have to suck it up and go to UI. I hope you get a $$ offer soon from UIUC. Good luck with the rest of your apps.

UW came in a small envelope. I live right off campus, so it might have gotten to me before the same letter may get to others... UIUC excites me. A good friend is considering UIUC for his EE PhD program, so that would be a huge plus. I like the idea of the campus not really being as dense as Madison, too. I'm excited to visit and see what it's like. Definitely ranking up there with MN for me right now

  • Wednesday, December 26 2007 at 03:37 PM

Hey sorry, I did not see your message till just now...I got accepted for the Spring program for John Marshall. They sent me a letter through the mail--I think it was about a month ago but I'm not sure because I threw away the stuff since I'm not going there...Have you decided what school you will attend yet?

so we are pretty similar on numbers and applied really really early to WI...and still nothing. I wonder what the deal is?

  • Thursday, January 17 2008 at 09:10 AM

Hey, I heard they got a really late start at UW due to a staff issue, so it might take a little longer than usual. I called and they said mine decision should be mailed by tomorrow. Good luck to you all!

- kmhenry42
  • WI
  • Friday, January 18 2008 at 10:41 AM

Yeah, I hope WI sends out some decisions to the rest of us soon as it is my top choice right now with William Mitchell and Depaul right behind. If you look at last year's decisions they are way behind schedule...wonder why. Anyway, I'm sure you will get off the WL at DePaul soon...your numbers are solid. best of luck.

- bllind
  • thanks...
  • Friday, January 18 2008 at 01:48 PM

i think Loyola will regret not taking such a qualified candidate like yourself...but you've got a great school in U of I that wants you, ya gotta feel good about that!

- kmhenry42
  • yes
  • Sunday, January 20 2008 at 08:25 AM

i would pick you baby. i love to see that gpa so high. the lsat don't mean shit.

- ohgov2020
  • Thanks
  • Tuesday, January 22 2008 at 06:47 AM

Congrats to you too. I don't know our numbers are very close for Depaul (stupid LSAT), I'd say we have a good shot to get off the waitlist, but I don't know how long that takes.
