Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: MIAMI WAITLIST

Alternate or waitlist?

Are there 2 different categories, or are people just using different words for the same thing?

Any word on when or IF it will move?????

Would love to be admitted! ???

When is 2nd seat deposit due?


It is mid tier2 - 70.

Why would you even think about a tier 3?
You start at a much higher place with Seton.
What if you don't make it to top 10% at NYLS, where there are students desparate to be there, as it is the only way to graduatewith job potential .

You can be further down in the class at Seton, and still get a good job.

You place yourself among the Tier 3 people at NY, and tier 2 people at Seton, which has been rising.

Why start yourself with a deficit when you have worked and achieved higher ground?

I don't know where you live, but on the Path, the ride from where NYLS is located to Newark Penn is 20 min, so the commute is really not that different.

I guess I'm  rankings crazy, but so is the world.

Any waitlist news?

It seems that some deferred people on lsn are now waitlisted.

Did anyone who went to ASW or spoke to admissions get any info?

I have sent loci, and am still deferred. I'm thinking it's not looking good.

Also interested in learning about housing. I won't live in Newark. Where else can you live?

Also, it seemed to me that almost everyone at the ASD was a college senior (and there with parents). Are there any older students in 1L, and I mean older than 22?

Incoming 1Ls / Understanding the Curve
« on: April 01, 2007, 12:12:43 PM »
I'm going to be a 1L in the fall, and am uncertain about the curve.
I need to maintain a 3.0 to keep my aid. I think of this as a B in college, but know this is not the case.

How difficult is a 3.0, and if the law school adjusts the curve (which I understand frequently happens), do I want it to get higher or lower?

Is there an F for every A?
That's downright scarey.
