I just got one from Regent University, but not from Lewis and Clark.

Not sure where you received that information.  You must have earned a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university to go to UT Law.  The ABA requirement is only 3/4 of the work required for a degree, so it is possible others would not require it.

And it would be extremely unlikely that any top law school had an issue filling seats this year.  In fact, a few have sent requests for admitted students to defer for a year, which is unusual.

It's not a top law school, it's Lewis and Clark... and I got the same thing even though I'm still in undergrad, as did several other people.....

Fair point on L&C, but I have to think the e-mail is a typo as they closed their admissions process on March 15.  Did they mean the January 2006 admission?

It's fun now, but just wait 'til they start clogging your snail mail box... especially when you're waiting for an acceptance from your dream school.  You'll be screaming, DAMN YOU AVE MARIA! at the top of your lungs.   >:(

Don't let Lane see this post.  :D

No, it clearly said Fall 2005 admission... yes, it is kind of weird... I guess they sent it out to people who got good scores on their LSAT, hoping that even if a few of them decide to apply for Fall 2005 admission, it could push up their 25-75 LSAT figures or something... they probably had yield issues as well.....

I didn't get the one from Lewis and Clark but I did get a letter from Ave Maria yesterday telling me that if I apply for Fall 2005 by July 21st, based on my number I have a good chance at a full scholarship and they would waive my application fee.....

Unfortunately Ave Maria's not one of my choices - did anyone else get this letter?

I got this letter and it said the exact same thing. I was only tempted by the fact that I wouldn't have to take a year off and I could go straight to law school....

Hofstra is still looking to fill 05 seats as well...

Looks like LSAC has opened the damn.

Where did you hear that?  I heard they are over enrolled and aren't even taking from wait list from more than 1 person.

I got the same (or a similar) email.  The header was about applying for fall 2005, and the application deadline given (at least for use of the fee waiver) was July 29th.
