I got more than I wanted to count, which would you like to see?! Rutgers was the best one, it actually came in a big envelope, they basically said that they really wanted me, but b/c of my low numbers they couldn't do it, they said for me to go to another school and transfer. They were real nice, gave me hope, i will apply again this time. Both this time, not just Camden, Newark too. The rest came in small envelopes and some were generic saying how they only care about GPA and LSAT, others were a little nicer with the wording but they all say the same thing. Here is a copy from Penn ( I applyed early decision and go rejected pretty quick).
Thank you for your application to the University of Pennsylvania Law School. I am writing on behalf of the Admissions Committee to inform you that, regrefully, we are unable to offer you a place in the fall 2005 entering class.
The evaluation process at Penn Law is thorough and deliberate one. Our Admissions Committee includes damissions professionals, faculty, alumni, and thid year students. Each file is carefully read by members of the Admissions Committee and many factors- both academic and non academic-are taken into consideration. What we find is that the number of qualified applicants far exceeds teh number of available seats in the class. Currently we are experincing a substantial increase in applications and anticipate reviewing as many as 6,000 applications for our class of 240 students. Unfortunately, in such a competitive process many fine candidates are denied admission.
I thank you for your interest in teh University of Pennsylvania Law School and I wish you great success in your future endeavors.
Blah, Blah, Blah,
Most of them all follow that format, sometimes you will get a personal message, like I got from Rutgers saying how my PS and LOR were incredible, but that is basically the jist of it all. Also a lot of them don't send them till after christmas, I remember temple saying that they don't want to ruin people holiday, but they Do send Acceptances, So if you applied there and got a letter b/f Christmas, you probibly got in. If after than chances are its a denial. What is kinda interesting also is when they tell you how many applicatants they have had for the class size, some of the numbers are rediculous. Anyway, hope this helps you all a bit. I hope not to get as many as these this time. Only my Oct LSAT score will tell!! (Time to say the prayers)
