Extra Curricular Information



There is not much information on splitters like myself, so I figured I'd share my progress since LSN has become such an important resource for me.

Scholarships are listed per year (i.e. if it says $10,000, the school offered $10,000 per year).

South Carolina: Accepted via status checker and email within 24 hours. Mailed scholarship info/admissions packet approximately 4 days later. They reduced my out-of-state tuition to in-state with an additional $500 per year.

FIU: Accepted via status checker. It said "Decision rendered, letter mailed." However, status checker showed a seat deposit option, so I suspected I was accepted. Received email the next day and scholarship info/admissions packet a few days later.

Miami: On hold via status checker and email. Said they would review my application again before April 30.

St. John's: Accepted via status checker/email! Offered $45k/year as long as I stay in the top 80% of the class.

American: Accepted via status checker/email! Scholarship information is coming in February. There were 2 complete dates: the first came a couple of days after I submitted and the second came 2 days before I was admitted. Scholarship info came on February 8!

Mercer: Accepted via status checker! Said a letter would be mailed within a few days, so hopefully that contains scholarship info!

Seton Hall: Waitlisted at Seton Hall via status checker. Accepted a spot on the waitlist. Spoke with an admissions representative who said that they do not rank their waitlist, so I have to show significant interest in the school in order to get off the waitlist. Also said may or may not get a scholarship off the waitlist because it depends on the year.

Stetson: Accepted via status checker and email! Email contained scholarship information and it's guaranteed for all 3 years.

Baylor: Accepted! The decision letter was mailed on 2/5 and I received it on 2/16. It contained the scholarship information. Their status checker doesn't tell you the decision. It only says "Decision letter mailed." Apparently, you can tell if you are accepted, waitlisted, or rejected based on the header on the status checker though. My header said that my decision letter had been mailed, but I can call the office if I'd like to know my decision right away. I imagine it wouldn't tell you to call the office if you are rejected. I found out I was accepted by googling "Baylor Law Seat Deposit." I entered my name and LSAC number. If it recognizes you and allows you to make a seat deposit, then you're in! This took a couple of days to work after the decision letter had been mailed, so don't freak out if it doesn't work right away.

Georgia State: Waitlisted at my top choice. Bit of a bummer for me, but I'm riding the waitlist out. I am considering reapplying next cycle and I'm already retaking the LSAT in March, so we'll see what happens!

**Update: I am retaking the LSAT in March in order to get off waitlists, increase scholarships, and potentially reapply next cycle if my score improves significantly. As a result, I have asked the schools that I am still waiting on to put my application on hold until March LSAT results come out in mid-April.

Thanks for the additional info, and good luck with Georgia State. GSU is my top choice as well - fingers crossed for both of us.
