Just timing

I'm guessing that it's because it's so early in the cycle. I don't go to school there.

Fee waiver
Monday, December 18 2006 at 07:00 PM

And the fee waiver showed up on the last step before submitting the app. You can actually check for it through LSDAS that way. Good luck this cycle!

After the fact..
Monday, December 18 2006 at 07:00 PM

The Duke status check email came this morning (monday), even though I got the acceptance on Sunday. Scholarship stuff won't come out until much later, I think.

columbia complete notice
Wednesday, July 26 2006 at 08:00 PM

hey you asked how i was notified i was complete at columbia. they emailed me that it was complete. they actually emailed me two different days saying my application was complete.

Soon hopefully?
Monday, December 18 2006 at 07:00 PM

By received, I meant that they requested my report from LSAC. Is that what you mean or did they actually contact you?

Hi numbers twin! Good luck this cycle--I'll be watching your progress!

Congrats!
Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

On Duke!

Columbia
Monday, September 17 2007 at 08:00 PM

Columbia sent two e-mails each to two e-mail accounts to confirm completion.

I don't recall exactly when but it was nearly a month ago. It was a merit waiver.

Harvard

Opps. Looks like I'm probably mistaken about being complete. I had put that because they have received all the LSAC materials, but now I realize that I'm probably not "complete" until they notify me of that status. I wouldn't worry about it too much. I've heard of people being accepted without every having been told that their application is complete.

Congratulations!
Thursday, October 25 2007 at 08:00 PM

That early Duke acceptance must feel great! When/how did Northwestern notify you about the fee waiver? I'd like one of those, too - wonder whether they'd give me one for asking nicely.

Thanks
Thursday, October 25 2007 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for the info - I just emailed NW. Good luck on all your apps!

HLS
Wednesday, July 25 2007 at 08:00 PM

I did, I'm hoping the call comes soon so I can de-super-glue my phone from my hand! ;) good luck to you, congrats on duke already!!

No love from NW for me - must be some mysterious factor that I'm missing.

complete
Monday, June 18 2007 at 08:00 PM

why the hell am i not complete at stanford.

Harvard
Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

No, no interview for me yet.

Me neither
Monday, December 18 2006 at 07:00 PM

I assume they're saving the best for last. ;)

HLS interview
Friday, October 19 2007 at 08:00 PM

I've been trying to settle in for the long haul. I did apps early, but I feel like the process is still a month or two from ramping up. Hopefully soon!

Interview
Tuesday, October 16 2007 at 08:00 PM

No Harvard interview yet...I wish!

HLS
Friday, September 28 2007 at 08:00 PM

Sigh...no email. But I don't expect one anytime soon (though I'm jealously watching those that have one and taking comfort in the fact that many do not).

also.
Monday, June 18 2007 at 08:00 PM

WHY am I not complete at Harvard?!

Phone Interview
Wednesday, July 18 2007 at 08:00 PM

Nothing yet. When did they start doing them last cycle?

Work Exp./HLS
Friday, September 28 2007 at 08:00 PM

I'm in education...was teaching, now advocating. Harvard and I have a history (as in they've rejected me before - since then I've gotten a brand new LSAT score (other one was a few points lower and 4.5 years old), a new job, and completed a master's - I'm hoping one of those plus applying early (versus January) will make a difference)

I know!
Monday, December 18 2006 at 07:00 PM

The past two Fridays, I've just been refreshing my email in futile hope. Maybe next week for us?

Congrats!
Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

On Texas!

Texas
Sunday, July 22 2007 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on Texas. I'm in today as well. For the previous poster, it was via phone call, and my status has not changed.

UT
Wednesday, July 25 2007 at 08:00 PM

the scholarship notification came via letter within a week after the acceptance package. Congrats on your acceptance! it looks like you'll have lots of great schools to choose from :)

Congrats!
Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

On NYU!

Congratulations!
Saturday, October 20 2007 at 08:00 PM

On your acceptances so far - more to come, of course! Best of luck.

Michigan
Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

Yeah, I think that is what happened too. One of my LORs was even from a Michigan Law alum, so I was a little surprised by it. At least we both have lots of other great schools to choose from. Good luck on all the rest!

Congrats!
Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

On Chicago!

Chicago
Friday, October 19 2007 at 08:00 PM

It's nice, isn't it? I'm actually out of town on a visit to another law school, but it's sure hard to focus on another school today!

Columbia
Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

Hopefully it won't be another deferral like Michigan. I'm not really sure what to think because it seems like a lot of people have gotten them. But I got my official NYU packet two weeks after the date on the letter, so hopefully the mail is just taking a long time from New York. Good luck and hopefully it will be good news for both of us! :) I noticed we've got matching UT scholarships too. Are you a TX resident too?

Columbia
Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

I don't think that's a deferral, hopefully they're just taking a little longer with you. Good luck!

HLS
Friday, September 28 2007 at 08:00 PM

I'm starting to view this process as rather cruel. I've heard absolutely nothing, which can't be a good sign. But I haven't been deferred yet. Or rejected. And I really just wish they'd get to it, or at least send a hold email to let me know they've still got my application, though I'm in favor of final decisions these days, good or bad. And nothing from Columibia yet either...

Harvard/NU
Friday, September 28 2007 at 08:00 PM

My held email must have been close behind :) I sent NU my actual tax return, priority mail because it just seemed wrong to send my tax info regular mail. I submitted both the FAFSA and Need Access on 1/31 - which was the date I finally had all my tax info. It took about 6 hours total, filing and forms all that night. When I originally asked about the deadline, they said get the FAFSA and Need Access in, worry about taxes later, if necessary. If you can get a close estimate, you might as well send it in. If you can't, it's probably not worth having to correct it later in order to send it in now, unless you'll miss the deadline. They recommend having the forms submitted by Feb 1, since it takes some time to process, but obviously mine didn't take more than a few days. And a belated congrats on Chicago!

Not a word yet.

NU
Friday, September 28 2007 at 08:00 PM

I showed them my Darrow letter. They didn't commit to a change right away - basically saying they would consider it, but offered the increase later.

Congrats!
Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

On Columbia!

Where
Monday, October 01 2007 at 08:00 PM

Either Texas or Harvard.

Thursday, June 07 2007 at 08:00 PM

Hey numbers twin, looks like we\'ll both be going to the same school too. I\'ll be deferring for a year but hope you have fun at CLS this fall.
