Property, Crim. Law, Leg Reg, Lawyering, and LWR is this semester.

Leg reg is alright...its basically just an intro into all the other classes which focus around the statutes rather than case law...

Lawyering is a skills course which is interesting. We have simulations that we are graded on and then a final exam which we prep for...so its almost open book?

Ah I see, not as radical as I was expecting. I have the same first semester then just con law instead of leg reg (and no lawyering) this semester. Lawyering sounds interesting though, probably an appropriately named class from what I gather.

Wow. Torts, Civ Pro, Property, and Contracts are all full year? Then they throw in Crim second semester?!? That's gotta be a hefty workload.


It sucks. Every...single...page. Moreover, I have 5 essay finals this semester...one every other day for a week and a half.

I also had an elective this semester, but I didn't get into any of the classes that I actually wanted to take. I'm in a very heavy theory class that I strongly dislike instead, but at least it is a paper course.

Out of curiousity, do you know if your status checker followed the pattern that was mentioned by some posters where it went from original date 'Completed' to listing April 18th "Completed" and then April 20th "Completed"?

Sorry if you were one who posted about that already; I don't want to go through the entire thread to check, but I'm interested to see if you are aware whether it held true for you.

Yeah, application stayed as Completed but the date changed from the 18th to the 20th.

Cool thx. I'll prob be checking for that next couple weeks. I expect a deferral with my stats, but am hoping maybe family legacy could give me a bit of a boost. I'm def not expecting acceptance, but would be thrilled if it happens.

Congrats again!

Still sitting at "application complete - 3/16"
Keep trying to tell myself that hitting refresh 10x/hour will not make anything happen any sooner, but I can't help it!
Congrats to those who are in! Hope the rest of us find out something soon..

Out of curiosity, did any of the people who have access to the admitted students website apply pt or both? Or are any of you in a pt program at your current school?

Also able to access the website! Now we just need to get those letters....

PS, to the poster who asked: I only applied to FT, and am a current FT student.

Has anyone else been updated from 4/18 to 4/20 that is not able to access the AS website? I'm really hoping for a computer glitch instead of the alternative...
