Did "Both" change to "FT" or "PT" if it ever said "Both?"

Mine changed from Both to PT. It use to say Both, about 12 hours ago. Now it updated my UR to today's date and says PT. I called admissions and they told me it was a computer error, as far as they know. So I am not quite sure what to take of it just yet. I am definitely waiting to tell family and friends- i will tell you that much.

mine only says FT.

Xfactor--I hear what you're saying. I know I'm top at my school, and it's gonna be hard if I leave. Unfortunately, I only realized wht my rank was a couple of weeks ago when they were released...I was originally praying to make it into top 5-10%, and didnt realize i was in the Top 1%!! So I applied to Gtown months ago EA, and didnt think any of the other schools were really in my league. Luckily, I applied to NYU as well, and keeping my fingers crossed for that. Otherwise, I may stay at my school, considering I'm meeting with the Dean this week to discuss a full schollie/more scholarship money.

Though the city where my school is located isn't bad, I'm def not a huge fan. I can deal with it, but I really miss the Northeast, and feel as though, yes there's more competition, but there's also more opportunity and a bigger legal market. So IDK what the right answer is...is graduating top of my class at #60 same as graduating somewhere in the middle or decent at a top law school??? This is what I don't know

Ahhh i'm sorry bankhead. I hope it works out for you. I'm keepin my fingers crossed bud. I hope you are right!!! I am just not certain if we have developed a stead fast answer to what it means when status changes from BOTH to PT or FT and an updated UR. Has anyone who has had this happen received a WL or DING? or have they all been acceptances to your knowledge. Thanks again!

I don't even know if I was accepted, but those of you still waiting, hang in there. I was talking to my LS roommate last night, and told him that I didn't think I got in to all of these schools cuz their acceptances likely already went out- barring some miracle. I am not sure if this is the miracle I was hoping for. But I think it means that there is hope for everyone. Many of the GULC admits got in to better T14's and used GULC as a backup, and because of that I think many people will be withdrawing and many people will be getting acceptances in the coming week/s.

I spoke to admission with regards to their OCI. They said they realize the end of their OCI bid date was 7/23 and that they are trying very hard to get in all responses before this time. So sit tight colleagues- you may be hearing some good news soon. I wish the best for everyone. And to be honest, getting in to GULC PT scares the crap out of me. Is it easy to xfer to FT after a year, what is required? After my 1L and 3 more years as a PT student I will be in the 200k debt ballpark. A very very very scary figure to face out of law school.

I'm not sure what to make of all of this, and am kinda just rambling on, but I meet with my Dean soon to negotiate schollies- a full ride from my current school (which means minimal debt, probably only 75k) and honors moot court and top 5% is really hard to turn down. BLEH. decisions decision- what sucks most is you won't know if you made the right decision until you look back in hindsight.

I don't have much to offer, but as a part-timer at my current school, I just wanted to point out that PT may be a blessing in disguise. You mention all the debt you would graduate with, but as a PT student, you could grab a job paying 40-60k year (a full time job) while working through school. While this wouldn't cover all of your expenses while in school, it would go a long way and that 200k you were thinking of might be an awful lot less. For what its worth.

Congratulations nonetheless!

Couldn't agree more. You could get some money and some good experience. Plus, A LOT of Hill staffers and people like that do PT at GULC. It's common. I doubt you'd feel out of place at all.

I have to say. Its incredibly nice having companions in this emotionally trying transfer process, but these predictions are driving me nuts lol. I was literally holding my breath for the past 20 minutes. I might have to quit TLS forums for a day or so because my nerves can't take so much excitement! lol.
