When did you submit your applications during the 2015 cycle?

I submitted in late December, but they didn't go complete until January whenever I received my LSAT score

Oh okay. I'm looking to have my applications in within the next couple weeks. I'm worried about my LSAT score though :/

You don't plan on retaking? You have a really great GPA!

Thanks. And no I'm not retaking it now. I scored higher than I was averaging on practice tests, so I want to stick with it. I'm not a good standardized test taker. I'll be including an addendum to explain my history with standardized tests. I'm open to retaking if I don't get in this cycle.

Thanks! Good luck to you too. I would say SMU is my top choice followed by A&M. I want to stay near home haha

Well actually, the status checker told me the decision right away along with the info that they had mailed the letter.

How did TAMU notify you? I'm currently eagerly waiting for a decision!
