Choosing the Right Law School / Waitlists...
« on: May 12, 2008, 01:21:01 PM »
I have been wait listed at two schools (one of which I would really like to go to).  I was just wondering if it is appropriate to email a school you have been waitlisted at to see if they have started going to the wait list or if they now have a better idea as to when or if they will use the wait list.  Also are schools usually willing to tell you were on the wait list you are as far as a ranking goes?  Thanks.

So according to LSN there are quite a few people in a similar situation at this school.  Many of them are in my numbers range (GPA and LSAT) and a few that would appear to be auto admits.  There are also a few people with similar numbers to mine that sent in their app 2-3 months later than me and already have a decision.  This is really getting ridiculous now.  I really want to go to this school but the fact that it is taking so long it is putting me off the school. AHHHHH!!! damn you admissions process.  I think there should be a set date for all schools to have their decisions out.

Law School Admissions / Still no decision

I have one school left that I still havent gotten a decision from (and of course it is a school I really want to go to).  I applied in December, went complete in January, emailed three weeks ago to get a status check and I was told no decision had been made, I emailed again on Tuesday and again I was told that there still has not been a decision made.  Would I be correct in assuming that if it has taken this long and they still dont have a decision that I probably wont be getting accepted?  Thanks.

Incoming 1Ls / Law firns pay off student loans?
« on: April 29, 2008, 11:11:22 AM »
I was talking to someone at the weekend who mentioned that some law firms (specfic types of law firms were not discussed) will actually pay of your student loans for you.  Does this really happen?  It seems a bit strange that a company would be willing to pay off someones loans.  For all they know they could just be taking the job for no other reason than to get there loans paid off and then they may leave to pursue something else. 

Law School Admissions / Status check
« on: April 21, 2008, 08:41:13 AM »
I emailed one of my schools to get a status check and they informed me that they have not yet made their decision and it also said "feel free to check back in a few weeks".  When I first applied they said that they hope to have all decisions out before May.  Taking all that into consideration is it safe to say that the best I can hope for is a waitlist? Thanks.

Incoming 1Ls / scholarships

I was just wondering if schools ever offer students scholarships after the first year(assuming of course that you have kicked ass).

Choosing the Right Law School / Widener (Wilmington campus) vs. Valpo
« on: April 16, 2008, 11:19:11 AM »
I just got accepted to Widener and I was accepted to Valpo early in my cycle.  I still have 4 more schools to hear from that I am hoping I will get into but if I dont get in anywhere more desirable which of these two would be the best? (job placement, chances to transfer, etc)
