St Thomas University Miami
« on: May 12, 2009, 08:10:38 PM »
I have been excepted to the summer conditional program at st.Thomas university in miami.  I know that 20% of the students will be accepted to the law school and that it is 3 weeks long.  Does any one have any more information on this program?  Has anyone in this forum actually go to this program and get accepted?

Thank You

I Graduated from St. Thomas and several of my good friends were admitted this way. They all passed the bar and proved to be rather good students.

the fact that you can't differentiate between accepted/excepted certainly dashes your hopes, doesn't it?

Just out of curiosity, is there a better term for the mistake than "grammatical error?"  I can't think of one, but it isn't apparent that if I mean "donut" and I say "suspension bridge" that it is a problem with grammar, whether or not the words are homonyms.

I as well was accepted into the Summer Conditional program @ St Thomas Law. I actually had to opportunity to sit in on a few first year classes and meet a few of the professors who have taught the Summer Conditional program in the past. Already began studying evidence! If you need a study buddy let me know, would be nice to know someone walking in on June 8th! :)

I have begun studying  the evidence packet as well. The cali HW was actually very helpful.  Are you going to be at the orientation on the 5th?

Yes I will be @ orientation on the 5th. Any idea how many students were admitted into the program ? Trying to figure out the exact odds of acceptance.
