They are indeed accurate. It was weird, actually, because I never received any confirmation that they received my application or anything after I paid and sent it in. The first thing I heard from them was yesterday, and it was the acceptance letter. I'm nervously checking my email all the time for all the other apps; it's too hard to resist! Good luck on your app to Miami, hope you hear back soon!

Wow...thanks for the info. I called up last week and found out it takes LSAC almost 10 days to get paperwork sent from the day you submit the application. UGH! My fingernails are suffering from all of this waiting! :-/ Have a great day!

If your goal is to be a lawyer employed by a law firm making a salary sufficient to pay your bills, you need to think twice about attending Pepperdine: Less than 45% of their graduates managed to get a full time permanent job that requires a law degree, and the majority of those that did found themselves at crappy "firms" with less than 25 attorneys making a wage you could get as an upper level manager at the Home Depot!! http://www.lawschooltransparency.com/clearinghouse/?school=pepperdine Here's some summer reading to consider before you potentially ruin your life: http://insidethelawschoolscam.blogspot.com/ You've been warned!
