Attending an ABA School if you've applied to a non-ABA School

Attending an ABA School if you've applied to a non-ABA School
« on: September 19, 2004, 04:46:03 PM »
Can you attend an ABA-accredited school if you've appplied to (but never attended) a non-ABA school?  Here's my story.  I'm applying to a bunch of ABA schools, and want to use Massachusetts School of Law (MSL) as an absolute las resort.

If, say, Nova Southeastern finds out that I've applied to MSL, would Nova not grant me admission simply for applying to MSL?

Thanks for your help.

People are starting to get overly paranoid.  No, they don't care.  Do you think they would be more likely to accept you because they know you're also applying to Yale?

Mass. School of Law is actually in my hometown.  Just that I'd throw that out there.

Hahaha.  Andover is VERY upper class.  Pretty expensive.  However, surrounding towns are much cheaper to live in (Lawrence, Lowell).  Apparently Mass SOL is on River Rd, which is right down the street from me (I've never actually seen it).  River Rd. is right near Lawrence and Lowell (Methuen and Dracut as well) which both have cheap apartments.

That's true for Yale: you're more likely to get in if you apply.  For no other school is that true, and the answer to the OP's question is that other schools don't care.  For the most part, they don't even know where you're applying.  Some (at least one) schools ask where else you're applying, but that's it.
