You seem super helpful on this site and I believe good things come for good people so I have faith that it won't be this way for long.
Stay up.

Can someone post a link to SEO and CLEo application forms? I have emailed them a couple of weeks ago and I have not gotten any response back.

I'm too lazy to search through SEO to find the exact link to the law application/I'm not on a computer so it makes it more difficult.

Try Googling it. That's what I did.

Just got an invitation to interview -SEO NYC. Would be such a great opportunity, although I'm kinda afraid of living in NYC.

Submitted in October. I'm holding onto a lot of the "URMs don't hear back until later" mantra, but I'm pretty sure I'm the last one on this thread that hasn't had a single acceptance. Last cycle was a disaster, too.

Ironically enough, I'm a lot less risk-averse than most of TLS and would be totally fine with paying sticker at Georgetown. It's the getting in part that's tough, apparently. :P

Twenty, did you end up retaking? I'm just curious cause I've been meaning to follow your cycle as a fellow MA URM. In any case, hope to see you get in somewhere soon!

Any theories on why some of us are stuck under review with the t14? Are they waiting for better applicants? It's weird tho, I am at or above the medians of some of the schools I applied to and still haven't heard anything for months...

Maybe I just had a crappy PS haha...(sorry had to vent)



I think I've had a decent amount of movement (3 T14 acceptances and UT) and I still feel like things are moving slow. I'm guessing many of us URMs will receive decisions from a few schools around the same time.

I haven't been posting much (read: at all) lately, but I just wanted to offer my congratulations to everyone who has received acceptances and interview invites. I look forward to meeting you all at ASWs and calling you out for being TLSers.

And for all of you waiting, it seems like this cycle has been weird when it comes to timing acceptances so I wouldn't worry yet. There's still plenty of time for you to get some great news. Not to mention, even a quick glance at LSN will show that URMs might have to wait a bit longer for the call than our non-minority counterparts.



ETA

If anyone wants to PM me questions about anything (interviews, numbers, cycle) feel free.

For those who wanted to learn more about SEO, I just got an email about a webinar for tomorrow (1/15) at 1pm. It looks like you need to sign up for the session using a unique link in the email, so I can't pass that on unfortunately. But if you didn't receive the email and are interested in attending, it may be worth contacting SEO asap to see if you can join the webinar.

I received the email too. I really wish I didn't have class at that time.
And I think anyone can RSVP, based on the survey page the link forwards you to.
