I haven't been able to get any information from Chapman's admissions office - they just asked to be patient since some applicants on the waitlist opt to be removed or select another law school so the make-up of the waitlist pool is changing almost daily which prevents them from being able to make a forecast about any one applicant.  They said they are reviewing files each day and notifications will be sent out to those selected up until the class is filled, which could be as late as August  :-\

I've received a letter from Chapman today and was taken off the waitlist... My current Dilemna now is whether to still wait for Southwestern which they told me could open up more spots during the week of August 13th(Their Orientation)

Additionally, I'm slated to attend Cal Western this fall. Any thoughts on whether there is a significant advantage to going to either school?

Come on over to Chapman! I really wanted to go to Cal Western but was rejected before I updated my transcripts.  To be honest, I am glad I am going to Chapman over Cal Western.  CW is stagant, and will not be moving up in the rankings.  Chapman is young and full of potential.  Also, I have heard of the dreaded curve at CW accompanied by a high attrition rate.

If you go to nalp.org and search law firms that hire from different law schools you will see that Chapman, after only 12 years of being in business, has a good share of firms in Orange County.  In California, Chapman has a higher bar passage rate for 1st time takers.

Median salary is higher too.  Of course my opinion is biased.

Nancy, I was just switched into section C... so yay, I'll actually kind of no someone... Look for the girl with red curly hair who looks new to LA... Starting the drive shortly, and I'll be in town Friday.

anyone else here in section A at southwestern?  i can't believe we are starting on monday...

with regard to the waitlist, i suspect that several spots will become available during this next week as they determine section sizes.
