Haven't heard anything since applying - should I be concerned?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I see that some acceptance emails (or at least some emails confirming that applications have been completed and under review) have gone out and, since I have received neither, am a bit concerned.

 

I applied on September 14th, and am certain that my transcripts and both reference letters should have been received by the end of October. McGill says they received all my materials by October 22, and they are much further away from me than Dal.

 

I'm an Atlantic resident, got 165 on the June LSAT and have an 89% undergrad average (still unclear on GPA conversion). I thought, perhaps naively, that those stats would get me in and probably on scholarship.

 

I emailed [email protected] this morning and haven't heard back. How long do they normally take to rely to emails? Should I just sit tight and expect a response from them soon? Has anyone ever gotten accepted without the "your application is completed and currently under review" email? I just wish I knew so I could send in anything that's missing before the Nov 30th deadline.

 

Thanks for listening to my venting. Hopefully they get back to me tomorrow!

I'm in a similar position. I emailed them about a week ago and still haven't heard back. I'm assuming they're pretty busy and trying not to freak out.

If you haven't already done so, email Rose directly. I'm not sure what the typical turn around time is from the [email protected] account, but I received a reply from her in under 24hrs. At a minimum, I'm sure she'll be able to confirm if all of your supporting documentation has arrived.

 

good luck!

You're in for sure with those stats. I assume you sorted out whether your application was received by now but I got the "your application is complete and under review" email a month before I was accepted.

I just got an email from Rose today saying my application was complete and they were just waiting on my December LSAT results to come in. That, along with the bunch of acceptances today it seems like they're working fast at consolidating applications and giving out offers that are already deserved! I'd hold tight, you'll be fine!

if you are still waiting, you can email the admissions officer to request an update!

    •   If this is representative of your writing style, you should probably work on making it more readable (eg more pronouns and punctuation, fewer run-on sentences) before the writing sample, and certainly before law school starts.   If you're not responding well to your tutor, you can always change. But 9am isn't an unreasonably early start, and homework is a way to do better in the sessions you're paying for.
    • That was really hard to read. I'm pretty unsure of what is going on but if you don't like your tutor, just switch. Your not going to benefit much if you're not happy with his style of tutoring.  But honestly, just to be blunt, being able to be somewhere by 9am isn't something you should have to work on. 
    • Not to assume too much, but it sounds like you may be a mature student.  There is a club for that, and everyone I met was very helpful. I'd join that club and start there. 
    • Good advice, I’m a single sole support parent so as much as I’d like to join a club or team I doubt I’ll have the time.  I think asking around and making connections with upper years is probably the way I’ll go about it.  Thanks. 
    • The best mark I received in 1L was on an exam where I wrote my own summary start to finish.  I used other summaries exactly three times in 1L, to look up an answer during an exam that I didn't have in my own. On all three occasions, the answer wasn't in the other summaries either.
