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!

    • I learned to embrace the fact that I'm financially independent. I speak loudly about my debt, without shame. My family immigrated here. They worked hard. They somehow found jobs in their profession. They're now saving for retirement, so I didn't want to put the 100 000 burden on them while they're doing that - it's hard enough to retire after only 15-20 working years in a country without having to service law school debt! Yes I'm worried about my debt. But I'm proud of it because I'm investing in my career so I can do some good in the world. I could've taken an entry level consulting gig after my undergrad, but that wasn't what I wanted to do So I turned it down. When my friends tell me about their reading week trip to Morocco in a 5 star resort, I tell them how I managed to fund a 4 day ski trip off of my credit card points plus 100 dollars. And we both share our experiences over a beer. And while it's hard, I also imagine what an amazing life my kids, if I'm lucky enough to have any, will have - and that pushes me to work harder.   Sorry went on a rant there. It's been.. an interesting night.
    • I felt the same alienation when people talked about their (or really, their parents’) cottages, time shares, vacations, hockey season tickets etc. Seemed like everyone had been to Europe (I know not everyone had but so many people talked about it.) Some people even had boats and horses etc. A few had condos bought for them by their parents and people talked about how their parents were paying their tuition. That was also hard to hear. 
    • Is drinking an Olympic sport? 
    • "Be more interesting" is the best advice I've ever received, the best advice I could ever give, and my constant goal in life. You can never be too interesting. 
    • The two aren't mutually exclusive. I've enjoyed all the activities that I planned to do before applying and have met some great people along the way.
