Thanks for the heads up about the wait list! And thanks, Highway. I'm still keeping my fingers crossed. And they can definitely keep the extra tuition...it's very inexpensive (relatively speaking) to attend up there in CT, rather than NYC, PA, Boston, DC.
Actually, as a plan B, I was going to go PT for a year and then transfer to the FT program, which they do say you can do. I know that many schools squeeze a 1L curriculum PT, with a summer term, and I assuemed UConn did that, too.
Unfortunately, when I did my research (and, btw, is their website the most user-unfriendly one out there?) I discovered that the PT program is structured so that you can take full-time classes in year 2, but you won't be finished with your first-year classes yet by the time the year 2 fall rolls around. They actually have 1L classes extending to the second year...even with a summer (June) term, which I think is only moot court. As the PT is technically a 4-yr program, they take their sweet time.
Come to think of it...maybe my having me there an extra year, they make more $$ than having me full-time for 3...
