You have to apply for Need Access too, which is an electronic form that most lsaw schools require anyway. Check out their website. You pay a one-time fee of $28 (I think?) and just like the FAFSA you can make changes on it after you've done your taxes.

I don't believe that anybody feels the way I do about CLS now.


+1

I said maybe CLS is gonna be the one that saves me?


Backbeat, the word is on the street that VCEs are out


There are many things that I would like to say in a LOCI but I don't know how

If I want to send an LOCI after my application was put on Hold, should I email it to admissions or send it snail mail?

Hold out the hope. I haven't gotten anything yet either. I think CLS may legitimately have no idea what to do with us.

ETA: congrats wsjch05!

were you on hold prior to this acceptance or had you not heard anything until this email from CLS?

I assume they hadnt heard anything. The complete date is fairly recent.

yup, it was the first time I heard anything from them since "complete" email.
I wasn't expecting anything until March, and really didn't expect to hear decisions from them via email,
I was planning to write them a letter of address change as I'm taking off to Korea on the 19th.

I guess they realized that relying solely on snail mail to notify international applicants is just inefficient.

I'm really tempted to do this, too, but they say on their LSAC instructions to please refrain from sending additional materials (except for grade updates, etc.) when waiting for initial decision, but that LOCIs are welcome after notification of hold or reserve.

I suspect you're going to be admitted very very soon, CastleRock. Until I learned that you're an international applicant, I was slightly worried about you -- with today's notification, I really think you would do best to sit tight for another 2-4 weeks.

CR, if you hadn't already called and asked, I'd have assumed your decision email was lost in your spam filter.

3.58 is good news for me. Yay for splitters!

I just joined the forum but I got in on January 28th and I had gone UR on 12/14. Not sure if that really helps anyone...

No, but my GPA is pretty close to 3.58. Still paranoid about getting in

Holding tons of people kind of works as a discrete YP process, no? I would think that many people withdraw because they already got into better/their first choice by April.

To the people who got in: congrats!!!

To CLS: If you're really confused about us, then at least send us a hold so we know you have seen our app. Although a real decision would be preferable. Awesome, thanks!

I know people have said there were holds last year, I haven't really looked into how many people CLS typically holds. Holding is definitely a means of YP, it just doesn't seem like this is that normal for them. Again, everything I am saying is baseless.
