Yeah it's a turnoff that there are so many married students, but I guess social scene shouldn't be the #1 factor! I'm visiting both schools soon, so I hope to have a strong gut feeling one way or the other during my visits.
These schools also seem to be at the opposite ends of the spectrum politically. I lean a bit left, so I wonder how I would fit in at USD if it's really conservative.

I'm considering both schools, USD and Lewis and Clark. It's so much cheaper to live in Portland AND they're giving me $7,500 to go there.
I realize that where I want to live and eventually practice are huge factors, but that aside, are these schools in the same league, or is USD considered a much better school? Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.

I got in fairly quickly, but that doesn't mean that you won't get in. Go to their website and find the admitted students page. You should be able to log in with your name and the last 6 digits of your social sec. #. If you receive an error, then you're not in yet, but if it allows your through, you're in!
I found out this way about a week before my acceptance came in the mail.

I withdrew from 3 schools via their admissions email address and I received confirmations within a day or two.

I know this thread is a year old, but is this what we have to look forward to? Decisions and being put on the waitlist near the end of April?! Seat deposits to other schools are due mid-April. Am I missing something?

Those are so late! Don't many schools require deposits by early or mid April?
This is crazy? What are they doing over there

I bet just to make me feel like I've wasted my time, I get a snail mail acceptance/denial letter from my last few schools before my online status even changes.
Lewis and Clark was cool because I tried logging in to their admitted students page every day for a month, and it was almost shocking when finally, I didn't get the usually error message, and I was in! I didn't get anything in the mail for a week after that, so it's not completely crazy to use the status check.
I'd say that over twice per day is bordering on obsessive.

After my first round of penny tossing, I went 0 for 4. Then I tried again and got in the Emory Penny. I guess this means I'll get in if I apply next year. What should I do until then?
EDIT: WAIT! I just read Info's last post! My can was too small so it didn't count!

Wow that's an interesting site (http://www.chiashu.com/
I wonder how accurate those numbers are. Now I'm sure I'll get made fun of for this request, but... after entering my stats I see that the percentage chance I'll get in to my four reach schools is: 29%, 19%, 12%, and 12%.
Statistically, does anyone know how to calculate my chances of getting in to at least 1 of these schools? (I'm kind of curious how to do this anyway).

Damn, that's tough considering your low GPA, but long absense. Probably would have been better had you been in business.
Check out http://www.lawschoolnumbers.com
and then give yourself a little boost since schools should consider your LSAT more strongly than your GPA.
I bet in a case like yours, your personal statement (hopefully describing why you're pursuing law) would be pretty important.
Good luck, and what by the way, prompted your career shift?
