I've been accepted to AAMPLE, and I'm doing the live program.

I'm still waiting to hear from Nova, and have no clue when they send out decisions. If you applied they probably sent you something through the mail that shows you how to log on and check your status. It's through Webstar--webstar.nova.edu. Unless I'm not looking at the right thing, it's not one of those systems that says "pending" or "accepted" in terms of your application, so I haven't found it to be too helpful.
Jon, the trial admissions programs absolutely may use the forced curve. They're probably trying *not* to accept everyone out of the program, so they'll establish a forced curve to keep enough people below the cut-off GPA, even if a larger number of people are doing "well enough" to get in were there no curve.
Depends on the school, but pretty much there's a set median like a B or B- and as many grades a prof gives above the median, s/he must give an equal number of grades below. So if the prof wants to give 5 A's, he has to give 5 C's or lower.
i don't think princeton would open a law school that wasn't nationally renowed (i.e. top 5-10). i see them snatching up some top notch faculty with great pay and perks. then when they announce they will have a law school, they will already have a strong faculty and thus, will attract highly qualified students.
what do you all think?
Princeton is largely overrated in many ways for its other programs, if it were to even gain entrance to the ABA, it should start off tier 4 and work its way up.
