Like you, I am happy with a Richmond WL as a reach applicant. No clue on the dynamics of the UR WL.

re: drop in tier
Thursday, February 22 2007 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the observation.! Where did you find the info about the bar passage rate? I also wondered if the drop in tier comes from Duquesne's 52% acceptance rate, making it one of the least selective ABA-approved law schools. Thanks again! :)

Do you mean to say you got an answer back from Nova in less than a month? Wow, I've been complete three months now and I haven't heard a word. Did you send a gift/bribe with your app?

The 'cuse

You seemed really excited about your admission to 'cuse. What made you withdraw?

I definitely think that I will end up there. They have offered me a grant; and I submitted some essays today that hopefully will get me some scholarship money. Also, this afternoon I contacted a recent alum that is now with a large, national firm and she has offered to discuss job opportunities down the road. That made me feel a lot better about my decision ... you know, just to know that there are alums out there that are will ing to help out with things like jobs. Did you submit the optional essays for scholarship consideration? I didn't when I aplied, but they offered to let me turn them in and still be considered. I'll let you know how that turns out.

Congrats and good luck! I called Richmond this week, and they said that the waitlist is not moving yet, and it's not ranked. Probably doesn't help much, but it's info at least...

Holy crap!

I noticed your sig on LSD changed from Duquesne to Pitt... amazing bump! Nice job and congratulations!
