So OGI starts in a month... do you all already know what firms that you bid on that you have actually been selected for? If so, how did most you of all fair?

Don't hear until 7/29. Bids aren't due until 07/12.

Oh, okay. Thanks for the feedback.

One more question (in two parts): Since sections aren't posted until 5pm the Friday before Orientation, we effectively can't get our books for classes until Saturday, right? Also, is the required reading before the first day of class light enough that we'll be able to get through it and understand it while juggling our Orientation schedule?

How hard would it be to pay UVA's sticker? Do they have good loan programs, etc. especially for those who would need it?

Thanks!

Their new LRAP program for incoming students (starting with Class of 2013, supposedly optional for current students to switch to as well) promises to cover all IBR payments if you make less than $55K, and prorated amounts up to a $75K cutoff. (I might have those off by $5K or so, but off the top of my head I think that's where the cutoffs are.) Between IBR and the LRAP you'll not have to make any loan payments yourself if you end up not making more than that.

If you do, you'll have enough money to make loan payments anyway.

The posted deadline last year was 12/15. The extension until March came out of nowhere. There's no guarantee it will happen again next cycle.

And thank goodness they did.

Those cutoffs are correct.

I doubt it. AutoAdmit has nothing (except fake announcements). They're allegedly supposed to go out before the bidding deadline, so I assume they'll go out tomorrow or Friday.

I wonder if Student Records' computer issues have had an effect?

0L question: How is law review chosen? Application process, or do they simply pluck the top students from a list?

Question! How difficult is it to get into the clinics? (I apologize in advance if this has already been covered, or there's an obvious answer on the website.)

:lol:

[Sometimes, I feel that talking to 0Ls about law school is like talking to a brick wall.]


And you were so different 2 years ago...

If you just want any clinic (2L or 3L year), it shouldn't be that difficult. The popular/better-known ones have a short application process and there's more people who want to be taking the clinic than there are spots/seats.


What's the application process like? Is it mostly about grades?
