It really depends on what school you are referring to. It took FSU about 7 days to get back to me, and others take forever - depends on the volume of the applications received by the school at that given time. I am waiting on a few of the same schools - will keep you posted - GOOD LUCK!

Monday, November 12 2007 at 03:45 AM

Definitely Michigan - We'll see! I will let you know!

Saturday, November 17 2007 at 12:03 PM

No, they did not send any scholarship info with the e-mail. They indicated that a formal letter would be sent in December along with scholarship information in January I believe.

Tuesday, November 27 2007 at 04:45 AM

Email was sent on the 20th and then I got in on the 26th, but from looking at lsn, people generally got complete earlier then I did (took more than a month for me).

Wednesday, November 28 2007 at 07:00 PM

They sent me an e-mail on October 29th saying it was complete and under review. The decision came on November 20th

Saturday, December 01 2007 at 09:11 AM

Thanks a lot! Our numbers are almost the same and we have the same major too! Good luck with your apps and I'm sure that you will hear something soon.

Friday, December 07 2007 at 03:36 PM

hey that was a mistake actually. i meant for that to be the date that my app was complete! good luck witth the cycle and my scholarship letter came a few days after the acceptance

Thursday, December 13 2007 at 02:03 AM

It's good to see another CJ major get into a good school. Best wishes to you!

Not sure!
Thursday, December 13 2007 at 05:07 AM

My cycle is going much better than last time I applied. That's for sure! I don't have a number one so to speak. I would love to get into any one of the top 14 schools (the ones I applied to rock!), and I'll obviously go to them even if I receive no money from them. However, I'd also be happy if I don't get into them. I have good options. For the other schools, money is of course going to be a deciding factor. Take care.

You were right!
Thursday, December 13 2007 at 08:34 AM

I got my letter from USD today!!! I thought it was odd too, as I got the same type of large envelope today (i.e., the financial aid letter saying I'm accepted). Am I reading it wrong, or does it seem that they do not give scholarship offers until after we're done their own forms and the FAFSA? They seem to do it much differently than other schools. I may call them and see what's up.

Tuesday, December 18 2007 at 02:26 PM

Thanks for your post. Way to go on your acceptances. Your early decision at UNLV might have a little something to do with your outstanding #s. I got waitlisted last year, so I am mentally prepared for a long wait..........

Friday, December 21 2007 at 02:25 AM

Nothing at all from WUSL except the completion email a while ago. I am surprised too but I guess I just have to stay in suspense and wait this one out! I hate this process and will be so glad when it is over! PLEASE GIVE ME A T1 ACCEPTANCE BEFORE XMAS!!!

s'ship letter
Saturday, January 05 2008 at 12:55 PM

congrats on all your schools. i was just wondering, what did you write in your letter to BSL when you asked them to match you other offer? did you just tell them that you had another offer but you'd rather go to BSL? just trying to get an idea because i have a feeling i'll have to ask for money from a few schools...

one more question
Tuesday, January 15 2008 at 07:07 AM

thanks for getting back to me about the letter. one thing i forgot to ask: who did you send the letter to? someone in admissions or financial aid?

Tuesday, February 26 2008 at 12:21 PM

I'm seriously considering UNLV. What are your thoughts on the school? I'm concerned about how young the school is and how that will affect job prospects.

Nothing Yet
Thursday, March 06 2008 at 09:04 AM

Haven't heard anything yet. I was hoping that getting my app in early this year might make a difference but oh well. Hoping not to get put on the waitlist again only to receive a rejection. I really want to get in this year since tution is going up in steps over the next couple of years.

Sunday, March 09 2008 at 06:38 PM

Thanks for the info! Although I was initially put off by the tuition increase I find myself becoming more excited about UNLV every day. According to the US Dept. of labor*, Nevada has the highest expected percentage increase in demand for attorneys of all the 50 states AND UNLV is only graduating ~110 students a year to fill the ~270 anticipated job openings. Furthermore, the median salary for Nevada attorneys is above the national median. And yet another reason why I like UNLV is that the weather is fantastic and I really like the southwest home/living style. I dont think Ill make it to the open house this Friday because Im extremely busy at this week. I am, however, planning on heading down in late March to look at homes/real estate. *<a href="http://www.acinet.org/acinet/occ_rep.asp?next=occ_rep&level=Overall&optstatus=011000000&id=1&nodeid=2&soccode=231011&stfips=32&jobfam=23" title="http://www.acinet.org/acinet/occ_rep.asp?next=occ_rep&level=Overall&optstatus=011000000&id=1&nodeid=2&soccode=231011&stfips=32&jobfam=23" class="data">http://www.acinet.org/acinet/occ_rep.asp?next=occ_rep&level=Overall&optstatus=011000000&id=1&nodeid=2&soccode=231011&stfips=32&jobfam=23</a>

Hey, how was the open house? So, I got accepted to the U of Utah last week and decided to withdraw from UNLV. It's kind of a bummer because I was so psyched on it but I can't justify going there over the U with the tuition increase. Anyways, congrats on getting into UNLV and congrats on your scholarship!! Good luck at law school this fall, though it looks like you have a history of creating good academic luck for yourself! ;)

Monday, March 24 2008 at 05:18 PM

Hey, thanks for the congrats but I withdrew today. I am sure you will do great. I really liked the prospects of UNLV but I can't turn down UF's cost. Good luck in the future and try to get a scholarship from UNLV-who knows, it might work :)

Tuesday, March 25 2008 at 12:37 PM

Hey, do you currently attend UNLV? I'm strongly considering going to their law school if I get accepted. Think I have a chance?

Wednesday, April 02 2008 at 01:06 AM

Hey, I hope I get into UNLV too! Part timer here. Hope UNLV likes what I have! Put in a word for me since you are in the school now. :-]

unlv bound?
Saturday, April 19 2008 at 04:13 PM

Congratulations on your UNLV acceptance! I am currently finishing undergrad at UNLV too, and there is a VERY good chance we will be classmates. Are you going to the open house on the 26th?

Friday, April 25 2008 at 03:36 PM

Thank you :) Are you going to the open house tomorrow?

Open House
Tuesday, April 29 2008 at 07:18 AM

Didn't really get any new info, just took a tour and met some faculty. I think they were trying to sell undecided admitees, no pitch needed for me. The new moot court building is great :)

Thursday, May 08 2008 at 08:29 AM

Yeah, if don't mind sending it to me I would appreciate it.

Tuesday, May 13 2008 at 08:59 AM

Thanks and congrats to you!
