Apparently (since LSAC pretty much owns the software that most schools use for their app checkers) - LSAC must have implemented a fee module to let students know that they owe $$$, or keep track of what $ they paid.

I was trying to figure out what was up with the fee boxes that suddenly appeared on Status Checkers (most notably Tulane's), but found out that I was

In at Temple

Thanks for your help guys!

I think I'll spend some time reading previous posts - looks like there's a lot of good info here.

Avenue Q is a good show.

Hey guys - first off, thanks for all of your help. I've been reading through parts of the thread and you guys have been giving great information.

Unfortunately, I haven't had the chance to read all 200+ pages, so forgive me if I'm repeating a question or two.

Just a couple of Qs:

1. What is public transportation (if applicable) like in New Orleans? Is the campus pretty self-contained or is there a lot of commuting involved?
2. I figured I'd try and ask: I went complete on November 13th - I was wondering what the normal timeframe for an admissions decision is? My numbers are 3.37/162 (GPA took a slight dip because of college courses from high school and year abroad grades didn't count), pretty solid softs.
3. I hear great things about Tulane's national prestige - how does the school place in Washington D.C.?

Thanks again.

Meh. Force of habit. I've worried every semester since freshman year.

I've gone from worrying about law school acceptance to temporarily worrying about grades. Should switch by the start of next semester.

Was accepted at American back at the end of November -- a little slow in posting to LSD.

With the first question: it depends on the school. Some schools allow you to apply to both, some don't.

I'm familiar with general residency rules for state schools, but not particularly for law schools. Usually, you need to have X amount of years of residency established BEFORE attending school (utility bills, etc... usually more strict protocols) to gain in-state status.

Maybe someone else can answer the verification question. But there are always lenders that do other loans, not just the Stafford.

It's somewhat true, but to what extent depends on the school. Part-time scores are not incorporated as part of the USNWR rankings, so law schools have a bit more flexibility when it comes to admitting applicants. However, I'm under the impression that they're held to the same range of academic standards as full-time students.

To answer your other question, the maximum amount a graduate student can borrow from a Stafford loan is $8,500 subsidized, $20,500 unsubsidized AND subsidized (this is per year). The lifetime maximum for a graduate student is $138,500.
