Law School Admissions / Re: William & Mary Acceptance?

it was kind of odd for me... I submitted my app at the end of October and went complete around the 10th of November, according to the email I recieved ... but there is no way I could have actually gone complete that day, since my second LOR did not get sent to W&M until Nov. 17th.  I was under the impression that they required two, but maybe just the one was ok.

I went complete the same day. Although, I am pretty sure my letters were both sent before that. So I'll continue to be disappointed everyday when I check the mail.

The answer is me. And yet, I am not listed...

Then again, how would you even know? You'll have to trust me.

After you get into G-Town as a PT, is there an option to switch to FT after a year or something?

Biased advice from a Nova man: Transfer. Do it. Cleanse yourself of the awfulness that is UConn.

Unbiased advice: Junior year may be a bit late to transfer. I guess you can do it, some law schools (not a lot, but some) will want an explanation for your transfer, and "I wanted to go to a more prestigious school" may actually work against you. UConn, while home to laptop-thieving-sketchily-recruited basketball players, is a good enough school that if you keep a high GPA and LSAT, you should be able to get into Law School just fine. As for the satellite campuses, I honestly don't know. It doesn't matter what your diploma says, its what is on your transcript that matters. Do the satellite campuses have a lower academic reputation?

True, but look at American, for instance. Last year, there were no November acceptances. This year, a fifth of those who have applied so far have already been accepted.

It'd be wonderful if GW could do the same :)

I just got my 'complete' email from them. How long do they usually take to render a decision?

I don't think I ever got a "Complete email from GW. Now I'm worried. I should've been complete for over a month now though.

Quinnipiac is stalking me. I've gotten a few emails and snail mail waivers from them. I would apply, one ends up working in the Pacific region afterwards.

Does anyone else's heartbeat increase when you open your mailbox?

Me too. I am bullheaded enough to believe that I can do better than Quinnipiac. Besides, there's only one law school that could convince me to spend three years in CT, and I'm not getting in there.

NU's is kind of useless though, they promise to let you know by 2/1. If you've got your application complete by 12/15, the vast majority of schools would let you know by 2/1 anyways.

I'm going to have to agree. Early is only Early if happens before January.

Duke is totally on the ball this cycle! I applied the 7th, went complete the 22nd and got the decision email today. I am not even a Priority Track applicant. Wow. Hopefully it'll be an acceptance.

Not priority, but I got a completion notice on Nov. 16th, and I'm still languising in the "maybe" pile apparently.

Mailbox checking has reached levels of feverish enthusiasm (followed shortly after by dissapointment) around here as well.

Patience is a virtue. Too bad I'm not that virtuous...

I'm also eagerly anticipating a response from ND

Pending a final decision on where I will attend, my preliminary  plan is to buy a MacBook with Parallels for any windows apps that I might want to use. The new version of Parallels lets you load Windows off of a Boot Camp partition, so I'd probably do that, and have the option to boot into Windows for an exam, while spending the rest of my time in OSX.
