They are kind of a reach school for me. If I'm an auto-reject I hope they will let me know soon.

It says on a school's website that they review files in the order they are completed. On LSN, people who have gone complete after me have been accepted, rejected, and waitlisted. The school in question is in my home state.
Any insight into their methods?
I got a message that said my financial aid application was incomplete and I could check the status online after I was fully admitted. Would this be a good reason to call them?
Regardless of the ethics, I think we can all agree that this whole process is really frustrating. I have to put a seat deposit down on a great school 1000 miles away because the schools in the market I want to work in are dragging their feet. I went complete in december. I see no reason for these schools to take so long, especially if I'm an auto-reject.

Do most students know what kind of law they want to practice by the end of the first year?
Do you know of any resources that could help me narrow it down?
I'm planning on going into corporate law, but I don't want to miss out on opportunities in other areas.
There are a few more specific fields I'd be really interested in, but I don't know if there is any demand.

You're right. I'm sorry.
I think I'm better than my numbers suggest, and I just wish I had a chance to prove it. I'm punished because everyone says they are better than their numbers. A lot of people would just instantly assume I'm wrong about my situation before they know anything about me.
If schools aren't interviewing because they don't have enough time, then oh well.
If schools aren't interviewing because they are afraid their committee will value looks over test scores and GPA, then I feel like I'm being robbed of a chance to prove my case in person because there's too big of a risk that someone will accept me based my broad shoulders.
I had a similar decision to make and my friend gave me some good advice.
50-80k in tuition represents around $7,000-10,000 a year in student loan repayments after you graduate. Is it highly likely that you can make 7-10k a year more by going to one of your preferred schools?
Also, what requirements do you have to maintain the scholarship to the second year?

I changed my silly response. I know you were joking. I just think it's stupid to bring race and gender into an argument about experience and the ability to do well in an interview. We can't be so concerned about fairness that we forget about creativity and personality.

I'll stay away from Gender, but I'm sorry, personality and previous work experience are important.

I just got owned. Touche`
Supply and demand is still important though.
(Response was changed from previous immature response, I'm cranky and need to take a nap)
