I imagine that a lot of us will be making multiple deposits, which in turn will drag out the acceptance cycle even more... it's extra bad news for people stuck in WL limbo

why though?  youre going to make the decision in a couple months anyway...why waste money and tie up seats?

I'll be putting down multiple deposits (2 to be exact).

The admissions counselor for USD told me to put down seat deposits at other schools because the majority of their decisions go out in May.....

I think there will be a slew of decisions after the seat deposit is due because schools will be able to see how much of their class is really full.

I'll bet many schools will wait til after the seat deposit deadlines to get back to us (inconsiderate of them, I know)...

true...they say this year is a very different year in terms of fact i just got a waitlist from a school that said they are waiting to see how it will work out and they cant make a decision yet

so yeah i would expect that this cycle will be a shock to a few people (hopefully a good shock)

I had the same question. Also, is anyone placing down more than one deposit?

why would you place more than one deposit?  You might as well make the decision now...worst case scenario...if you get rejected by all the schools youre waiting for, which would you choose?

unless you are REALLY on the fence...make a decision now...youll have to make it soon use in wasting money

I have a deposit due on 4/15...but i havent even heard from 2 others...not even a waitlist or a deferral...nothing...

shouldnt they at least tell me something before april?

i'm going to send the deposit anyway because if they havent responded by now, odds are against me...and i applied in mid october....

if you call and explain the situation i'm sure they can be flexible with you...

just make sure they send you something in writing to confirm the extension to avoid any problems

btw my seton hall deposit is due april 15

Why don't you spend the year working in Chile so that it looks more productive? 

that would be a waste of time.  schools want a high lsat and gpa...and you have the high will get in SOMEWHERE, esp with a unique story like that

I was shocked to learn how many people don't know about these!

For those heading to completely new areas, or house-shopping from afar, try out the google maps to get a sense of a location without physically being there.
Simply type in the name of a city (Chicago, IL) or an address (123 Main St, Chicago, IL), hit [enter] and click "satellite." You'll get a great satellite image of the area so you can see first hand if there are parks, golf courses, lakes, etc.
**Smaller cities will not have the satellite feature.

Wow .. 123 main St, Chicago, IL really exists  :o

Google Maps is the best

True Dat...double TRU!!

Ultimately, it depends on the person.  Some people can do really well on  standardized tests and are brilliant, but have no people skills.  Ever watch that show boston legal?  While the show far from non-fiction, it does have a character that is brilliant, who the partners always ask for advice.  and while he graduated harvard law and is a genius, he was not the most socially graceful person and didn't know how to deal with people, and so he was never chosen to be partner.

as you get older, less emphasis is placed on your law school and more on your experience
