Trelawny, have you been accepted to any other schools? If not, I think you should consider the program. I remember you mentioning earlier how the program would truly help you so don't miss out on the opportunity just because you have to committ to a school. I had to do the same thing and it turns out that the school is my best option....Best wishes

I will be flying, just waiting to make arrangements until we get more word from Mrs. Williams. I believe the acceptance letter explicitly said do not buy plane tickets until you have further word from her. Speaking of, did the people going to Missouri receive the email today? We're getting close!!!

so i applied to cleo back in January and got that email in March saying that they were submitting information to schools I listed on the app for a nomination and I havent heard anything else since... is it safe to say I'm not getting in ? Should I try to call email ... or would that be to no avail? I've been waitlisted at my top choice and was hoping that participation in cleo would help me get in.

Hello Everyone,

I just paid the 2Gs to attend. I am now hungry after dinner time...

I'm filling out a form to fax back to CLEO and it asks if I would like placement assistance. I would like help getting into a better school but I am already admitted to a law school. What did you guys mark, and under what circumstances?

CLEO snail-mailed out what looks like one of its final batches of decision "letters" yesterday and today. I have heard that people have been accepted via e-mail, so I am thinking snail-mail = bad news. I also wonder what CLEO does with people whose numbers are much better than average for CLEO applicants. My LSAT and GPA are better than most; yet I somehow get the feeling that this works against me.

I applied around the same time as well, I have made several phone calls and sent several emails and have yet to receive an answer. I am not sure what to do anymore because this has become a very stressful process. Some information from them would be helpful in order to make the neccessary arangements if we are in fact accepted.

I called yesterday and I was told that they are still waiting for responses from schools for nominations and some students won't hear until the end of May. If I get accepted I will only go if it gets me off the waiting list at my top choice. Otherwise it would be too last minute to get everything together to go so last minute.

I agree, with letters coming in at the end of may does not realistically give anyone time to prepare to leave for 6 weeks. Hopefully we can hear something sooner rather than later.

The FIU participants just received an email from Mrs. Williams regarding an "official" Facebook group that has been started by the director of our institute. I have to finish up things with my current job and move my entire life before June 6. So I am slightly overwhelmed, but thankful for this opportunity. I am still vacillating between two institutions, I have been admitted to one and have secured my seat, but wait-listed to the other. We will see what transpires! Good luck to all still waiting.

Hello everyone,

CLEO participants, it is getting close to that time! Florida crew, I hope you all will keep in touch and inform the Missouri crew of what's going on with you all since you will start a week before us, you all can let us know what to expect.

To the invisible man, I think most of us on this one are attending the six week summer program but good luck and let us know how your program goes.

I was calculating my expenses today and it seems I will save if I drive but on the CLEO- Missouri website, it is stated several times that we will not need a vehicle. They charge like $6 a week for parking which I don't think is bad. I have found only plane tickets for $500 or more but if I drive I will only spend like $180 for gas roundtrip. So, what do you all think?

I would rather fly so there is less stress during travel. Driving puts pressure on me and tires me out.

Decide soon though... The ticket is expensive and the prices will continue to increase...

My Missouri Folks, Did yall peep that roommate survey? Most of those questions had nothing to do with selecting a compatible roommate! Also in this regard, I didnt think we would even have roommates BUMMER. I'm low key jealous of the FIU CLEO facebook fan page.. yall are on it. Yes CLEO FIU Keep is informed and we will surely do the same! We need a combined facebook group.. if for nothing more but to all meet.

I must say, I did not think we would have roommates either. I am not disappointed though because you never know, this may be just what we need for a support group. Also, at least they are letting us pick our own roommate if we wish. So, I say everyone let's meet up on Facebook and we can do more research on each other and pick roommates.

Thanks JDO for the advice. I am going to drive, I plan to pull out a day early and stop about half the way to rest for the night. Then I will do the remainder of the drive the next morning. It's only eight hours and my dad has always said I should have been a truck driver because I love to drive so hey who knows I might drive all the way Saturday and just get a room until Sunday morning.

Is anyone still waiting to hear from CLEO regarding acceptance/denial? I emailed and called but havent received an answer and I must say I'm not happy with the level of communication they have provided. The program is close to a week away and no answer. I have postponed my summer plans and have missed several education opportunities waiting while waiting for a reply.

Does anyone know if CLEO qualifies one for an in-school deferment of student loans?

Just saw the FIU Housing. It's apartment style dorms with a kitchen and living room. 4bedroom singles with 2 bathrooms each. Not bad. All the FIU attendees are already getting connected, I'm excited! The Dean joined our group and that's pretty funny. She seems really kind and helpful though. Our program starts this Sunday. Wow!

Lawman: I would not think so because you will not be enrolled as a student. I have a scholarship that I could not access early because the program was seen as something I am doing on my own.

Allsmiles: Wow. I'm excited for you. Keep us all posted! Can't wait until we start at Missouri!
