You only applied to 2 schools? That was a lot of faith. I'm sorry to hear about SCU. :(

Scurvy I only applied to three schools myself (OK 4 but withdrew from one before I got an answer).

It never crossed my mind before finding this discussion board that some people apply to a lot of schools. I thought most people applied to handful of places.

I think pluto is like me --  limited geographically and not willing to move for law school. Obviously that leaves fewer options.
When you have somebody dying because they are poor and black or poor and white or because of whatever they are ... that erases everything that's great about this country.

Love you avator, really cute.

When did you apply, if you don't mind me asking, and this was to their part-time program?  Your numbers seem really great for their P/T program, so I'm a bit shocked.

No prob, I applied early Jan but took the Feb LSAT which means my file went complete in March which I think was my biggest downfall.... Hopefully, Hopefully, I wont have the same fate with Golden Gate or I'll need to retake LSAT and do the whole thing again... oh my :'(

You really should have gotten in anyway.

I'm very surprised.  Did you feel good about your PS?

If I were you I'd send a nice note to the Dean and let them know how disappointed you were and how great there school is blah blah blah, and probe them for what would make your app stronger in the future.

In other words, elicit out of them why the rejection.  I don't know if it would bear fruit, but it would be worth a try.  Who knows - maybe they'll take it as a sign of serious interest and reconsider.

Hey Pluto I'm going to Hastings. If you go to GGU we can get together with the USF students and form a club.

By the way, have you thought about delaying a year and reapplying? Or are you eager to move forward?
