2/1/10: In Committee Review at Elon

2/9/10: Still in Committee Review at Elon. Applications are complete (and have been) everywhere except WVU. WVU was sent my 3rd letter of recommendation on 2/4/10, so it should hopefully go complete soon. I'm anxious for some decisions! It seems some schools (UNM and WVU especially) are taking their time with all applicants.

2/16/10: Received an e-mail back from admissions representative of UNM. I had e-mailed last week to see if they could tell me what the status of my application is. She said my application is being reviewed, and she told me to use the status checker, which only says my application is complete. I really need my first acceptance!

2/19/10: FINALLY!!! My first acceptance came via e-mail from Elon!!! I'm DEFINITELY going to law school now! I hope they have a nice scholarship offer to accompany the acceptance. We shall see! I also just found out that I'm "in review" at WVU!! Keeping my fingers crossed for another acceptance!

2/23/10: Under review at Penn State. I don't have a good feeling about it, given my numbers. It's a wonderful school, but I'm not expecting great news.

2/24/10: First ding from LSU. It does sting, but it's not unexpected. I couldn't cheer for an SEC team other than my Dawgs anyway.

2/26/10: Received an e-mail from Elon informing me that they're giving me $5,000 a year for three years. It's not much, but it's still enough to keep Elon in the running, especially since NC is so beautiful.

3/1/10: Received my expected ding from OU.

3/2/10: Pooled at West Virginia via status checker. WTF, WVU? This is an interesting technique for their admissions. I really can't see how this isn't pissing a lot of people off. As far as I'm concerned, it's a waitlist, and I'm not thrilled about playing the waiting game.

3/4/10: Received an odd e-mail from WVU about their "Class of 2013 website." Huh? Upon checking the status checker again, it now says I'm admitted! However, I can't log in to the 2013 website for some reason... I'm wondering if the pooled status was a screw up or maybe the acceptance is instead? Either way, it makes me wonder what the hell is going on up there and why their admissions department is so screwed up! From pooled to admitted in two days...

3/5/10: Admitted to Vermont via status checker!! Woohoo!! I hope they offer me some money because $40 K/year is pretty steep. I still can't log into the class of 2013 WVU wesbite... I've e-mailed admissions but no response yet. It's been a great couple of days! UNM, why must you make me wait so long?!

No, my status checker went straight to decision rendered from application complete. Then, it took about 2-3 days for them to mail the decision letter, and another 2 or so days for me to receive the letter. Good luck! I hope you hear from them soon!!

Wednesday, October 21 2009 at 08:00 PM

Hey there, yeah they give a huge preference for in-state students so I'm not surprised I heard so quickly. According to those listed on LSN, it has only been about 5 accepted. I'm not too sure other than that though. Has your status checker changed to decision rendered yet?

Wednesday, October 21 2009 at 08:00 PM

Yeah, I'm sure you'll find out by the end of this month or the beginning of next at the latest. I applied to UNM as a safety and would really like to move/practice in Co. so I think it's about my 4-5. However, the tuition for in-state is really good so I may have to reconsider. Is it your top?

Wednesday, October 21 2009 at 08:00 PM

That's exactly how I feel about NM. I do love Albuquerque, but I think it is time for a change. But, Colorado is only about 5 hours away so I'm not making such a drastic move. Are you ready to move cross country?

Hey i just got a second email from WVU today telling me how to check my status and the status checker said i have a letter on the way. My status checker hasn't changed and the letter wasn't titled. Any ideas what this is about? Have you seen anything similar?

No I just counted the days. It first went into review on 1/27/10 then for some reason changed to 2/1/10. I just looked at the calendar and started counting the days. I just got two emails from wvu though. The admission lady said files stay in review for about four weeks but the process is taking longer because of the new system and snow. I just got another one about the deadline being pushed back to Mar 6 to accept Feb LSAT score and test that were rescheduled due to weather. I'm def going with the assumption they haven't recieced alot of applicants or just not enough of the ones they want.

Well good, I'm sure you'll love Albuquerque, as well as the rest of NM!

Congrats on getting into Elon! I got a big white envelope in the mail a day or two after my status checker changed and scholarship stuff came a little less than two weeks later. They say on their website that it could take up to 4 weeks though.

I don't recall, but it certainly changed from the previous message to "You are admitted." Hope that helps.

Hi there, to be honest I can not recall if it went decision rendered or just to accepted. I do know that they release decisions on Friday afternoons. Hope this helps and good luck

So my status was pooled last night when i checked and i just checked again today and it was changed to accepted. Interesting.

Definitely weird, but congrats on getting accepted.

That's really weird. My decision date is still 3/3 so I don't know what they were doing with us and the pooled/accepted quick turnaround. I also got the class of 2013 email and my login information doesn't work either. I had a login for another school and it took about 3 days for it to start working...so I'm hoping within the next couple of days our login info will start working for us.

I also am unable to access their site, even though I was accepted. I sent the Admissions an e-mail and will call tomorrow. Let me know if you have any luck with the site. Best of Luck with your cycle.

I applied back in October. I've been "In Review" since 2/1/10. It's the weirdest thing.

Congrats
Wednesday, February 17 2010 at 07:00 PM

I was placed in the pool status this past week as well. I don't know really what the hell it is, but I hope they make a decision on me soon. haha. Congrats on your acceptance though.
