I'm hoping the e-mail means we have been accepted and they're trying to figure out how generous the financial awards will be.

Regarding Gates PLS, I called earlier in the week and was told that finalists have been selected; however, those of us who have not yet been admitted were not considered for the scholarship.  At all.  Weeks of putting words together and getting letters of rec. for nothing. 

Law School Applications / Re: BOALT

applied 1/19, complete 2/8, silence, hope and rehersals in the theatres of the absurd since.

i carry a 3.6 and scored a 162 (now that i know a february score may have been included in a decision, i regret not retaking), encouraged to apply because of the so-called holistic nature of boalt's admissions.  striving for social justice is important, right?  come on, berkeley, validate me!

i wish you all the best.

Law School Applications / Re: American PIPS Scholarship

Yup, you're right.  A week or so after WCL acceptance I received an e-mail stating that PIPS applications are reviewed on a rolling basis and it may take until early- to mid-April.

Is it primarily just for people who received the 'deferred' e-mail that decisions have been made?  Not being a recipient, I don't want to call and waste their time.

Two ideas.

From what I understand, it is completely unnecessary to disclose virtually any convictions pre-18 yo.  It's sealed, juvenile stuff that is untouchable.

For the rest, just write an honest reflection on the incidents that shows insight, respect for the law and your personal determination to do what is right.  You can totally come out a winner here.

If you're still sending it about, count me in.

Lemme know.  If you're ever in Salt Lake, I'll buy you a cup of coffee!  Or something. 

Thanks and I wish you well with your efforts!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: LR murder mystery POLL

I didn't have a murder mystery on Saturday's test.  It seems that there may be two reasons:  either it was within an experimental section and/or there are multiple tests administered (which may mean it counted).
