Thanks for the advice, I just wasn't sure what the protocol was for acceptance emails.  Whether I should send a "thank you very much for the offer" email or just wait till I make my final decision.

BTW - Wanda & Stacey are great and do respond

I got accepted today however, I want to think on my options/wait for other acceptances to come in before choosing a school.  Did you guys reply immediately?  Also, when do you hear about possible entrance scholarships?

Just wondering your stats if you felt like sharing?

My email didn't say, I'm thinking the official letter that comes in a few days will tell us.

Longtime lurker here. Applying from the United States.

 

How long does it take before your app is reviewed? I've been at "Not Reviewed" for about a month.

Your app status will basically stay as 'not reviewed' until a decision has been made on your file.

I applied Nov 11 and was accepted Nov 18. However, it went straight from not reviewed to accepted.

 

Good luck!

Yeah I emailed the admissions office and they confirmed that the "not reviewed" status is the default until a decision has been made.

Ahh, thanks guys. For law schools here, you get an update anytime an adcomm even thinks about your application, so I guess I'm a bit spoiled.

Apparently from past threads some people are not reviewed up until the very end, even with October applications. That's gotta be frustrating!

Received an acceptence email today!

cGPA: 3.4

Best 90: 3.63 (including semester abroad marks, which were evaluated by WES)
