I'm sure you'll be fine. They usually don't care about deadlines. You can just call or e-mail them and ask what's up.
oh dear god I'm happy you're awake! I can sleep tonight! Between the cost of moving up there then paying for the damn school, I'm telling you... panic mode.
Any word on who's getting $$? I was at median/75th LSAT, above 75th GPA. Anyone in the same boat care to share their experience? I'm not drowning in debt after undergrad (state school), but these numbers are HORRIFYING once you start crunching them.
Also, and I promise this is the last question, what on earth is the dress code for ASW? I can't figure out what one wears to go to a law school tour then to go out dancing...? Do I wear a loose dress OVER a tight one? then strip down as I run like superman? Maybe tearaway pants? or, if upstate NY is anything like central PA, a parka and earmuffs? Is it appropriate to wear wings of some sort? Perhaps carry a sword and drink out of a hollowed out horn?
sorry, it's late. but any answers anyone can provide would be great! Hope to meet you all soon, you seem like charming people and i'm excited.
For whatever it is worth, I'm only slightly over their last yr's 75th and GPA slightly below their 25th, but I still got a total of $30K... Not much, but at least it's a guaranteed 3-yr scholarship and not conditional like some other schools!
