Incoming 1Ls / Re: South Texas Spring '09 Applicants

The user id and password you use for the online status check comes from Admissions; it's not your LSAC logins, so you'll have to call or email them to get your information.  Also, just in case they don't tell you, make sure to use the link to the status checker from the STCL home page (it's one of the options when you scroll over the prospective students button) and not the link on the admissions page.  The correct URL should start with 'aces2' and not 'happy', which is their old server. :)

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: George Washington Waitlist

The assumption is that he is GUBOUND.  Maybe it is high GPA/low LSAT, but his index # is higher than most on the WL, so I wouldn't read too much into the breakdown of the numbers.

As murraj reported, decisions won't come until late June.  Letter dated May 14th confirmed it.

Congratulations to all acceptees!

I'm sorry if I missed the answer to my question in another thread but I was wondering if any of you wrote more than one of the essays or if that would just annoy them.


Choosing the Right Law School / Re: catholic u?

Catholic is good for practicing in DC.  By virtue of being in DC, some big firms like Jones Day and Piper Rudnick interview on campus.  They do have a part-time program. 

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: What do you guys think of Cordozo?

I don't know if this has been mentioned but if you want to go to Cardozo make sure you save some extra money for the seat deposit.  I was acctepted for last summer and the seat deposit was $1000.00.  I think this is a lot higher than most.

I have also taken both the MCAT and LSAT (as well as the GRE, GRE subject in biochemistry, and GMAT; I like standardized tests) and I think that they are similarly difficult but for different reasons.  Clearly the MCAT covers a lot of material and while there are a lot of study aids available, there are nowhere near the number of genuine practice tests to study from as there are with the LSAT so you don't have as good an idea of what to expect going into the MCAT.  With the MCAT, you tend to get out what you put into it moreso than with the LSAT.  People can take practice test after practice test of the LSAT and never score above a certain level but the more a person studies for the MCAT the better they generally do.
