30k-67.5k over 3 years. Look on LSN for people with similar numbers, you will pretty much get the same amount.

Yeah I'm having the same problem. Probably just a site outage.

Well, I think Dean Z said in a previous blog post that Wednesdays are her big app reading day. Not sure if that's still the case, but I'm holding out hope that she's going to get to us today, awahoya.

I like that thought :) I'm 14 hours ahead so it'll make me sleep a little better knowing there's at least a chance I'll be hearing tomorrow...

My lack of a status checker is really killing me. How long is the typical wait for a decision after you receive one?

I wish she would have addressed the issue of whether or not the employed students are employed in legal-related careers...

I know I’ll propably like it, but. . . .


FMAZE..YOu made Zearfoss' blog!!!!!!

See below
A current student recently e-mailed me a link to Top Law Schools and (gently, politely!) chastised me a bit for a report on there about behavior by the Admissions Office. The story was that someone whom we admitted early decision (TLS code name = FMaze) contacted my office and asked to be released because of a change of heart, and that in response, an unidentified person in my office gave the caller a “lecture about the obligations” of early decision and “interrogat[ed]” the caller to get a “disclos[ure of] the name of the Florida law school” he or she was now longing for. The student who e-mailed me queried whether the Admissions Office’s behavior was inconsistent with my extolling freedom of choice in some other posts.

(the blog goes on to say that you never called the school and she is hoping you will call)
