Hey, good luck! We've got very similar numbers, and we're both interested in SD. Do you think we have any shot at ED USD FT?

Just saw that we're both applying to Chapman. Best of luck to you!

Good Luck

Good luck to you too. Thanks for the kind comments.

Emma, Following up from before - Southwestern offered me no money, and so I withdrew. Maybe they'll give my spot to you. Spankatola

Congrats on UNLV! I know it took awhile for you, but did you find out via status checker? Congrats again!

Saturday, December 11 2010 at 07:00 PM

Well done. UNLV is a great school. Have fun.

Saturday, December 11 2010 at 07:00 PM

It's a 7 horse race for me now. My wife is also applying to schools, so we're waiting on a few of her answers before deciding. My top choice Nebraska though, with chapman and drake close behind.

Thanks!

Thanks for all the advice!!

Thursday, March 24 2011 at 08:00 PM

are you going to unlv?

Thanks

I just got the ding from UNLV so congrats on that! Believe it or not my choices are coming down to McGeorge or American. I really want to stay in Cali if I can. GL!

Hopefully!

That's great. I hope you enjoy it. I love UNLV and the community is amazing. Thank your SO for his duty to our country, and I hope I get to see you next semester.

Thanks! Congrats on UNLV too! So far UNLV is my top choice. My seat deposit isn't due until April 15th so I'm still "thinking" about it as it will be a big move for me. I did reply to the decision e-mail saying I accepted the offer...so I may be sending in my deposit soon! Did you go to the ASD last Saturday?

Well at least you got a good vibe from the people at the school. Getting sweatshirts from schools is usually a highlight for me too! Did you apply for the PT Day or PT Evening program?

UNLV
Tuesday, January 04 2011 at 07:00 PM

I applied to the FT program but after speaking to admissions, looks like they are "flexible" in allowing students to maneuver from FT to PT. I'm sticking with FT for now, but after the first year/semester, that may change. If you don't mind me asking, what are your reasons for doing the PT program?

Tuesday, January 04 2011 at 07:00 PM

I'm a little worried about working and going to school my first year as I'm not sure if I can handle the workload. Yes I did work full-time during undergrad but I know law school is different..It would be nice to get that in-state tuition for the first year...

Hi Emma: Thanks for the advice! I just received a phone call from UNLV after I told them I wouldn't mind being put on the waitlist. Maybe we will see each other there! haha Thanks again for the advice!

I believe my file was complete early march, unfortunately had to apply way later than I wanted to this year. I am shocked I got wait listed even though I applied just cause of a fee waiver.

Emma: I got in!! Thank you so much for your advice. It really helped. Maybe I'll see you in the fall!!

Wednesday, March 23 2011 at 08:00 PM

Thanks! Congrats on your acceptances as well. I haven't heard anything from Cal Western about scholarships yet, but I think they send that info out separate from the acceptance letters. I'll let you know if I get anything.

Thanks for the well wishes!! Good luck in San Diego!! And congrats again!!

USD...I hope
Tuesday, March 08 2011 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on getting in. I am really not sure if I am going or not though. For sure it's the top school on my list, but the financials are killing me. I might end up at a T3 or T4 (sigh) if they offer a scholarship. HOPEFULLY, San Diego offers me some aid, but we're getting pretty late for that to happen. Hopefully it works out and I can see you guys in the fall : )

Thanks!

Good luck to you too at USD! Congrats!
