Acceptances / Re: questions about Campbell

I think everyone agrees that it's his decision unless other posters offer to pay the tuition.

 So OP should feel free to PM me and I'll tell him how I know about the legal community in the state. 


I am currently accepting grant offers from LSD members...

What does "OP" mean?

Where should I go next fall? / Re: UNC Waitlist

If it's worth anything, and this is just one story, I know a girl here at UNC who came in to visit with the dean of admissions after she had been waitlisted and was told she was admitted on the spot.  So I guess a visit can't hurt.

what were her numbers like?

anybody know how the WL is shaping up?  Any shot for a 158 3.3?

Wait List / Re: UNC WAITLIST

I'm on it.  In-state, around the 75th percentile for lsat and gpa.  I would write them a tuition check right now if they called. 
Have you heard anything about how the wait list is shaping up?  On lawschoolnumbers it looks like a ton of people have waived their admission, and UNC has already gone to their waitlist for a 162 2.96.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed.  Would love to study IP there.

Campbell over NC Central in a heartbeat as well.  Campbell has a better alumni network and is MUCH more respected in N.C.

 Wait until you get a financial aid package from both schools (even if it means two deposits) -- all of my friends at Campbell got grants.  If money is a deciding factor, then wait until both offers are in.



Did they get grants before their 1L year? I have received my fin. aid package and there was no mention of a grant of any kind. I have not been offered anything (2nd deposit due June 1), but I did write a letter asking for grant scholarship assistance.

Anyone think I have a chance for money:  (white) Campbell 75th percentiles in LSAT and around the median GPA

I am having a lot of trouble justifying spending  the extra 20+ thousand dollars a year on Campbell.  The focus of the school seems to be on litigation, which is not a huge interest to me right now.  Campbell does seem like it has a better reputation than Central, but is that reputation worth enough an extra 80K in debt??
I have also heard that Campbell's focus is on training attorneys to learn practical skills, and to work in small towns , which doesn't bode well for paying off the 100K+ in loans.
