Congrats to everyone on some very impressive cycles!

So far my top choices of those places I'm admitted are BC, Illinois, W&M, W&L. This week was interesting...ding at GULC, Hold at NW, WL at UVa and no word still from Penn. Any advice on how to proceed with the hold/WL?

Wow TK! Does this affect your decision now? How does H stack up against full Darrow?

Like 5 minutes ago, via email! There's sending an official package and whatnot in the mail, but they sent the email first! Duke isn't my top choice, but it's nice to know I got in Somewhere!

NICE very creditable opinion. Dr.John Borrows is one of the worlds premier Aboriginal legal scholars. I hope you get a T-14 however it worth keeping in mind if you plan on working in the Aboriginal rights field.
did you get $?


Won't find out until I get my admit packet. But I'll definitely post it on my profile here and LSN when I find out.


Got my scholarship info... $35,000/year! Certainly changes things a bit for me. Barring a decent scholarship at a T14 (aka a miracle), if I have a good experience at ASW, Minnesota is likely where I'll end up.
