Limited in where I want to go. If I don't get any, I'll just do something else. I am DONE applying. Now, I just sit and wait.....and hope.

Sent=When I click send
Received=When they request a report
Complete=When I received a confirmation notice or if I didn't receive anything, the date they requested the report.
Decision=The date I receive notification.
Received the rejection letter from U of L. It was dated the 6th. Look below. Sigh.

Finally got around to e-mailing U of L to see if I was complete. They said it was complete and they would be sending it to committee in a few weeks? Huh? I'll probably get a letter in the mail tomorrow.

Reject from UK. Normal letter. It was a little too much to hope for. Remember kiddies, study for the LSAT. Three more to go.

Not so good news. Received a normal letter sized envelope from Loyola. It's okay, but it does sting a bit.

Only 4 more to go.

Update! Yay, finally received some kind of news. Received an acceptance letter from Toledo today. Normal sized white envelope dated January 3rd.

Although, it was to this "reduced load, transitional program." What in the world is that?

Received a letter dated the 19th from UNLV saying that my application is complete and that most decisions are given out in April. That's a loooooong time.

12/18 Just saw that the schools I applied to have a grid on the LSAC guide to schools. Wow, was that some depressing stuff or what?

Rejected from Depaul. Not too shocking, but it does sting a little. It was a small plain white envelop dated the 10th. Only 6 more decisions to go.

Received my first acceptance. Even though I probably won't go there(too expensive) it is nice to be accepted. It was a plain yellowish regular sized envelope.

Another day, another received e-mail. This time from UNLV. At least I'll never get another received e-mail.

I accidentally ordered another report, so I figured I may as well use it. Applied to UNLV even though they are notoriously against out of staters. Applied because I have lots of family there, too bad I couldn't claim residency from them.

Yay, Finally all of my schools have requested reports. Also, UK sent me a packet to prove my residency. It looks way more complicated than any application.

Another day, another e-mail saying I'm complete. This time it's Wayne State. And, of course, still nothing from U of L.

Received e-mail from Kent saying that I was complete. How come U of L is taking forever?

Finally, my first complete. Still wondering what's up with UL?

Received e-mail from UK saying they received my application.

Applied to U. of Toledo because I could.

Sent application to Wayne State because I received a fee waiver. Yay!

One more to Loyola.

Sent application to UK and Kent

Sent application to U of L

Sent out my first application to Depaul. I've officially begun.

Everything is almost ready. All I have left to do is update my personal statement.

Took LSAT 09/07. Royally screwed up the LSAT. I knew I should have cancelled.

U of L has requested my report. They did so very quickly after I sent in my application. I'm not sure why they would have requested mine so quickly, but still have not requested yours. Wish I had some better advice for you.

- dcpi23

  • Tuesday, November 27 2007 at 03:20 AM

You should contact U of L and check on your app because when I send mine, they responded with an email within just a couple of days. That was about a month ago though, and maybe they are a lot busier now. I'd follow up just to be safe.

That's just the date from my LSDAS page. I assumed that they have everything because I know I sent everything. I just registered this account today and didn't know this site existed until last night. I haven't received an email yet, although I have from others. Is LSDAS not an accurate timetable?

I just went back through my email since I applied and I actually have not received any communication from them, I guess I just assumed I had since I had heard from everyone else to at least confirm receit of my application. Sorry.

just wanted to let you know, Louisville just sent me an email saying they received my application (even though they actually got it almost a month ago) and that they will soon be requesting my LSDAS report (also done a month ago) and that my application is complete if it is complete with LSAC, which it is. I think they might have just started reviewing Dec. 1st and that's why everything's been delayed...

  • grr
  • Tuesday, December 11 2007 at 06:29 AM

i know, right? guess what DePaul..i didn't even WANT to go there! I forgot I applied! hahaha the only bad thing about this is that it doesnt bode well for my loyola admission. no. POSITIVE THINKING! +++

- Faust
  • Top one
  • Tuesday, December 11 2007 at 05:30 PM

Which one is your top? Thanks about Depaul, its ok but as 'Faust' denoted it means Loyola will slap me too. John Marshall is still a possibility though until it loves/leaves me...

- beattyot
  • Eh...
  • Thursday, December 13 2007 at 08:57 AM

Yeah, but I had the same response from them last year. For me, it's as good as a rejection since I'll get no money off the waitlist. I'm hoping for one of the catholic e-mails today, but I feeling kind of down about it now since I haven't gotten one yet and it's 2:00p.m.

It's rough man. I didn't really want to go to DePaul and it stung, probably because I haven't actually gotten an acceptance yet.

  • Hi!
  • Monday, January 07 2008 at 05:36 PM

Thank you for the well wishes, and I hope your application process goes well also. Is your first choice Louisville? My undergrad offers free housing to anyone that goes to UK, so it's my first choice. However, if it was not for this, UofL would definately be at the top of my list. Anyways, I just wanted to wish you good luck!

Good reason! I love Louisville. I try to get up there as much as I can; the center for the arts is an irrestible attraction to me. :) Best of luck! I'm sure you'll get into UofL... if they ever decide to start making decisions that is!

  • Thursday, January 17 2008 at 06:57 AM

  • UofL Cont'd
  • Friday, January 18 2008 at 04:32 AM

Didn't day when they'd start sending out decisions. I *do* know that they didn't start reviewing files until January. I'm guessing it'll be the end of the month before anyone gets anything. Esp. looking at past cycles. I passed by UNLV while I was attending a Bachelor party in Vegas. I think it would be a weird/crazy place to live for any length of time, but kind of cool too. Southwest has a direct flight in case you're thinking of visiting the campus.

- dgmess01
  • U of L
  • Saturday, January 19 2008 at 12:27 PM

I called them on the 15th to see if my file had gone complete, since I had not heard anything from them. I was told that my file was "being reviewed" and that I should hear from them within the next 10 days. That makes since when you look at the first decision dates from last cycle. Thought you might want to know.

- dcpi23

  • Tuesday, January 22 2008 at 07:48 PM

  • Saturday, January 26 2008 at 07:15 AM

I hate to say it, but money is a factor. I'd love to go to Vandy. It's my first choice, but I'm not sure if they're as generous with their money as Wash U is...I've still got my fingers crossed, though.

I checked full time preferred so I'm not sure if they are considering me for both or what. I would do either because Louisville is my only choice.
