At admitted students day (this past saturday) they talked about how they have had a huge increase in applicants this year, probably reason for more waitlists and taking so long to give out scholarships. I talked to about 10 of the people there and almost everyone (except for the die-hard south carolina people) were waiting to hear back from other schools before makign final decisions, some had been accepted to George Washington and UGA, UNC so there will probably be more movement on the waitlist. Also they had a record number of people actually goto the ASD something like 200 or so...

Just got an email saying my app was complete and under review (took the LSAT makeup a month ago). In state w/165. Wish me luck.

Still no decision letter in the mail, which makes me feel a bit better. Seems the reporting of waitlists has stopped, so I'm glad my letter has a few days space between that big batch.

Maybe they needed an extra long amount of time to type out all of the 0000 in my scholarship offer?

:roll: but probably not. Will be satisfied with straight admission at this point, given some of the #s they have waitlisted.

I'm 95% sure I'm attending this fall. I'll be commuting from Charleston, SC, daily. (I know!)

Anyone else sure they are going yet?

Got the oos tuition waiver plus 5k/year.

It will cost me 16K/year to attend. Not a terrible deal...

Yea, and you'll make that back in time spent on the 52 foot climbing wall (or the sauna if you're afraid of heights).

Still haven't heard squat from these guys. Wish they had a status checker.
