I'm applying to Quinnipiac and NESL as well. Good luck!!

Hey- I heard from Mercer through an e-mail. I'm still waiting on some other schools, but at least it is a start! Best of luck on the rest of the cycle!

Ole Miss
Sunday, January 09 2011 at 07:00 PM

My status checker at ole miss went from complete, to Orr evaluation to committee review all in the same day. Still just says committee review, but I received my acceptance letter in the mail last week. So don't rely on their status checker.

Mercer

Congratulations on Mercer. Unless something else changes, I will probably end up there. My acceptance package mentioned nothing of scholarships either, and I doubt I would qualify for any. Most scholarships are merit-based, which are based on the LSAT score. :(

Hey-
Sunday, February 13 2011 at 07:00 PM

I am in at Mercer, too, and will go there barring an unbelievable offer from somewhere else. I visited them last week and was really impressed; they actually teach legal writing while most places leave you to figure it out yourself.

Monday, January 24 2011 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on the acceptances! FWIW I haven't heard from GSU yet and I applied the day after Thanksgiving...

Sunday, February 13 2011 at 07:00 PM

Any word on a scholarship? And, out of curiosity, why Mercer for a Yankee girl :-)?

My Top 2
Sunday, February 13 2011 at 07:00 PM

My top 2 are U of the Pacific and Mercer, probably. U of the Pacific is attractive because I might enjoy the Cali scene after living in the South for all my life.

Ole Miss
Wednesday, January 05 2011 at 07:00 PM

Just wondering if you heard back at all from Ole Miss. I'm in the same waitlist boat and I'm trying to get a read on how long it will take..

Sunday, December 05 2010 at 07:00 PM

yes I put down a deposit at Elon...but I am waiting to see about SC's waitlist as well as if Stetson has some kind of an appealing decision...

great name
