Law School Admissions / Re: UNC -- Why they are slow
« on: April 03, 2008, 12:47:27 PM »
I got impatient yesterday and called the admissions office. The lady i spoke to, who was nice, said that UNC normally does admissions later than other schools and are still in the process of reviewing applications. She asked for my information and told me that my application is under review right now, so "no news is good news". She also informed me that they will first email me and then send a letter about their decision, but as the website says, a decision should be made by May 1. I also noticed on lsn that one person was notified email on April 2nd that they were accepted, so there is still hope for those that are waiting. I'm going to give it til next week and then call again because i'm going to have to send in a seat-deposit somewhere soon.

On a side note, i'm not sure if UNC is my first choice, but i would like to know if it is among them. My numbers are 159/3.97 so i fit into UNC's range, but i'm just worried about being out of state (from what i understand, the legislature mandates 75% come from in-state).

I was just looking at the uva website, it might not be a good sign that admitted students weekend is this weekend....

Got the email too. Applied late october and finally they make a decision! I'll be honest, my numbers are 159/3.97 so i am not expecting the best news. You think the waitlist is the common denominator or is it going to be mixed?

Law School Admissions / Why hasn't UVA rejected me????
« on: February 24, 2008, 04:38:38 PM »
Even though i was given a fee waiver to apply, i didn't think that my 159/3.97 stood a chance at getting in... I applied back in november and see that uva is sending out rejection letters, do you think they are waiting for a reason? On another note, I called UF the other day and my application is on hold there and it is uncertain when they will make a decision.

Is anyone else experiencing these frustrations??

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: University of Florida??

I applied to UF back in October... I am in the mid-range of lsats and high on the gpa. I called a month ago to check on my file and they said that my application was on hold, which means that looked at my app but did not make a final decision. From what i have noticed, they have been sending out rejection letters, so if you don't get one, that means there is still hope. Its just a waiting game now...

Law School Admissions / Re: Signatures necessary for LORs?
« on: January 27, 2008, 07:28:50 PM »
If it the form that you get off the lsac website, you do not have to sign. Signing means you waive the right to be able to go to the admissions office and ask to see your recommendations. I did not sign any of mine, and i don't know how schools know if you did or did not. If the form is from an individual school, i don't know. Hope that helps.

Law School Admissions / Negotiating Scholarships?
« on: January 06, 2008, 07:03:37 PM »
Does anyone know if it is common to ask schools for more money? For example, i got 25k from a school but would want at least 30k to make it reasonable for me to go to an out of state school. If anyone has asked for extra money or know someone who has, please post the results.
