Law School Applications / Re: Seattle Status Checker??
« on: January 17, 2007, 01:20:07 AM »
It seems to be less than completely reliable. Mine says my decision was mailed yesterday, a holiday, and had her status checker reflected a decision mailed on a date 10 days in the future. I don't trust it too much....

Its just a mess. I work for the PAO and I'm not so much tired of the weather as I am tired of the city being unable to handle the weather. AND, while gripping about Seattle, when is SU going to start sending out more decisions?

This is the first time I've ever been bummed about all the holidays. I work for the local PAO and I'm the only one who isn't loving all the time off.

In the tier 2 vein, anyone visited or planning on visiting Rutgers - Newark or Seton Hall? I'm trying to plan a trip out there in March to see both, but I'm not sure if I'll need a car...where a decent place to stay nearby is......any thoughts?

Bump to keep the thread alive.

And you predicted it would die!    ;)

I'm glad to see the Tier 2 contingent is alive and well! 

Anyone going to DePaul's Open House next weekend?

I'm way out west, but I'm planning on attending the March 10th ASW if I haven't gotten into one of my reaches (fat chance) by then.

In at Seton Hall, and a Dean Scholar (9k). I thought my sub-3. LSAC GPA would torpedo my cycle. I didn't exactly aim for the stars, but 3/3 so far has me on cloud 9.

You've also got to consider that getting residency status at Rutgers is a breeze if you're wiling to sign a year long lease in NJ. YOu can establish residency before your first year as well, so tuition at RU looks more like 18k than 23k.

honestly, i think the whole in-state preference is way overblown for washington.  it's a different story when you get to accepting people off the waitlist (pretty much all in-staters).  But, for regular admission cycle, they're more interested in the straight up numbers. 

just looking at lsn, my sense is that a school like UT is much more serious about their in-state requirement than UW.  UT seems to admit people with much lower indexes that are from texas, but UW doesn't seem to do this until the waitlist period.

4.0 with a 163 will be a very strong app. for UW, but certainly not a lock (even if you were in-state).  in my mind, a lock is if both of your stats are at or above 75 percentile. 

Is preference given to Washington state residents?
It is faculty policy that approximately 70% be established as a target for the percentage of Washington state residents in the entering class. However, residency is not a major factor in an admissions decision.

Congrats. I thought I was done hearing from schools before the New Year and was reveling in not obsessing about checking the mail every day. I don't expect to get in there, but I'd really like to have a choice within Chicago.  :-\

My first acceptance was RU-N as well, so they hold a special place for me as well. Their policy on in-state tuition (see my LSN) sure makes them cheap too. It sure makes the rest of the cycle easier, not having the uncertainty.

For all the DePaul admits, on their website they show historic curves. To get the 3.3 that goes along with everyone's scholarship you need to be in the top 30%, give or take a few places.
