Widener TAP- Who got in this way?
« on: March 11, 2005, 11:13:01 AM »
I am starting Widener's TAP this summer, and I wonder if I could hear from someone who got in this way and is now going there. I want to know as much as I can before I start. Thanks!

Yo legalkitty!  We met at UBALT's Open House.  I got into the TAP yesterday!  So you were right....we will be slaving away together.  Cool beans.

Fred- I knew you'd do it!! We're gonna kick a**!!!

For anyone who doesn't know-

TAP is Widener's Trial Admissions Program. You take three classes in the summer over a month, and as long as you do all your assignmnets, show up, and get a 2.3(C+) or better, you start in the fall. About 25-33% of the people successfully complete it. It sounds like they make you work like a dog, but it is doable as long as you are up for it. And I definitely am!!

It is probably our server. Try writing me at my yahoo account, if you still have it. As for the t-shirts, I think it is going to have to wait either way, because I have  to come up with the $1500 first!!! (Not that I am complaining!!) What about you?

Good luck guys! I am still trying to decide between the Albany AAMPLE program, or the Widener TAP program. I might see you in class in the summer.
