I am sorry to hear that...they are really putting these decisions off too long

I really feel for you and just wanted to give you some things to think about:
Obviously I don't know your relationship so a lot of this may not pertain to you:

1. This might not be finalized...four 1/2 years is a long time...I think it is a good idea that you put off making a decision until you are in a more positive frame of mind.
2. If, heaven forbid, things do not work out... you have to think that eventually you will have moved past it...are you still gonna be happy at Oklahoma...if yes then I would really think about taking the full ride...if no, then I might go to Vandy...I used to live in Nashville and it is a pretty fun will meet new people and won't have all those painful memories to drudge up the past. Plus you will have all summer to be with your family in friends...if you had to leave tomm. I would say defn. stay in OK if it would make you happy.The reality is that in three months, you will still be hurting but you may be in a better place and ready to move on to something exciting.
Do what is best for you! I wish you the best of luck!

No most schools offer admission to at least double their capacity...go on their sites or look in any law school guide and it will tell you the number of accepted vs. the number of attending.

Well, I am not sure...some schools are changing their mode of notification to hurry up the process for WL and Defs...could be in the mail, call, or e-mail...I am hoping that they have an answer for us by Friday...but till then they hold the cards and I think if I call one more time the staff may put out a restraining order! jk...

Wanted to see if anyone had any updates? I called today...still no decision!! I mean they said possibly the end of April but c'mon! I just wish I knew either way so I can start getting excited about my other prospects! Anyone else on edge?

I met him he is youngish...def younger than I thought he was too. I went on a tour a while back and the guide was late, he came out and personally entertained us until they got tell many deans are that considerate?

Yeah me too...I live in NYC if they give me enough time to wash my hair...count me in! HA! Well I guess we just have to sit back and wait...sadly that is not something that I do very well. I dunno about the statement. It doesn't hurt as long as it conveys something that was not included in your file. Like this is what I have been doing, etc. I did that and I got another could do that if you wanted. I just wrote and said...this is my progess on my master's thesis...blah blah...Cardozo is still my first choice and I will be ready even the day before if you call....
I did that because I had been WL like over a month ago and wanted them to still know that I was interested...since you were just WL you prob. don't need to but like I said, if you have something to add, then defn. write them.

That is a good sign...when I called they said that 80 were for part-time and 20 for full-time...don't want to get my hopes up...but I am liking these odds. At least that is what I will tell myself until that last day!

I was complete mid-February and got WL about mid-March. Well if they have not filled all of the spots yet, then there is still hope for us! Next week I might call and see if the spots are still open! I don't want to be annoying, but when you want something really bad...well sometimes you just can't help it!

What did they say when you called, I got WL about a month ago and they did not have much info on WL at that time...did they say if the class had been filled or how many people were on the WL? If not maybe I will call and ask.
