Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Part-time in D.C.

ccptexas,

You have great stats, so I am sure you will do well. Out of all the D.C. law school students I've talked with, American tends to get the highest praise. Plus, it's in D.C., and the opportunities seem pretty endless. I'm especially interested in public interest work, and there is much more of that in D.C. than in Charlottesville ...  ;)

Depending on what you want to do, Catholic has great clinical programs too (including one exclusively for PT students).  I think for the latest rankings they came in around 13 for best clinics in the nation. 

veritas -- Where did you find out about the part-time specific clinic at Catholic? I haven't seen any information on it.

Catholic does seem a little more "student-friendly" than the others at this point. Their admissions department is very cordial and they are consistent with sending follow-up correspondence to admitted students. It's nice to have that, after such a stressful application season.

Thanks for the encouragement. I'm excited about being in D.C. It's an amazing spot if you want to practice law.

Law School Admissions / Part-time programs in D.C.

Has anyone else applied to the following part-time programs in D.C.? If so, when did you apply, when did you receive your decision, and what are your stats?

*  GWU
*  American
*  University of Maryland
*  Catholic University

I received an acceptance from Catholic, but haven't heard from anywhere else yet. I am hoping to attend American, since they have awesome clinical programs. My stats are 158 and 3.43 (from UVA) and I am currently an editor for LexisNexis. I contacted American and an admissions counselor said they recently completed my application and I should receive a decision in a few weeks. I think I'm in for some bad news since I didn't take the LSATs until February (delaying completion of my application), and it was right after my brother had heart surgery. Ugh, so much stress!

Sorry, wrong board. I'm moving this thread over to the general forum.

Did any of you apply to the part-time division at American? My stats are above par in comparison to last year's admitted part-time students, but this year has been so tough.

I really want to attend, though, because they have such amazing clinical programs. So far my only acceptance has been from Catholic U.

I applied pretty late in the game and have yet to hear anything from Maryland. I would try calling them and inquiring about the status of your application.

I think that the information PR gathers is going to vary from school to school, especially since each institution might report more or less information, more or less accurately, to make themselves look better. I did notice in the bookstore the other day that the 2004 edition of PR stated the average starting salary for g'town is $11,000, which I can't imagine being correct. They also had incorrect information on some of the tuition rates.
