Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: American Wait List
« on: April 18, 2005, 11:04:16 AM »
Just got my waitlist letter from American (that makes the WL total 5). So is it common for a school to say that if they call you to take you off the waitlist you have to make an immediate decision?  that seems pretty stressful to me, especially being on so many waitlists.  I like to have all the cards in front of me when i make a decision, but it doesn't look like thats going to happen.  What is the general reputation of American in D.C.? I'm new to the board, so i'm not sure if that question has been answered elsewhere.

It must be something new that they're doing this year at American.  When I was admitted off the WL last year, I think I had about a week to decide (and that was in late-July!!).

namaste...stats? full time or part time?

I applied FT last year.  I was waitlisted and checked the box to be considered for full and part-time (never expecting to get off it).  When I was accepted though, I was accepted for Full-time like I wanted.

As for my numbers, they are in approx. the same range as those being Waitlisted this year (on LSN).

Pls see the other AU Wait List thread for my answer.

I can only say that I was WL'd last year and accepted around late July (which I believe is shortly after their second seat deposit deadline).  HTH.

I have the same problem: Iowa or American.  Although AU is now officially top tier this year...the difference in rankings is substantial.

I think I'd go to AU.

How did you manage a scholarship at AU?  Was it a scholarship or a grant?

I can't shed too much light on this, although it sounds like you've been admitted for the Masters and the JD app. is still pending.

I called American yesterday (Friday morning) and was told that all applicants should receive a decision (Accept, Deny, WL) by the end of THIS month.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: How big of a bookbag do I need for law school?

From what I've heard, using Lexis or Westlaw after graduating from law school is really expensive. Firms try to avoid using it... they charge something crazy an hour.

but doesn't that just get billed through to the client?

Firms, yes, even the big firms, try to keep their costs down for their clients --as it should be.  Used to work at a major law firm and they were very nitpicky about how much time we spent on Westlaw.

Kudos to you, YellowSpringer!  (Long time no talk)  Looks like you're headed to OSU anyway.  Case IS, actually, a very nice school --administrators, professors, and students.  I could've told you that after my visit, but I'm glad they were able to show you.  Chris Lucak is a very nice man.  His response reflected that, and was certainly 100% genuine.  I'm very glad to hear that you got in.

How did "The Course" end up going?  Feel free to PM if you'd like.
