When do you think the next batch of decisions will be released?

Mac is great, I switched to one after using PCs my whole life and I love it, but one thing to consider is the fact that for some reason Pitt's self-service printing client refuses to work on Macs. This means that instead of just hitting print and swiping your card at a self-service printer, you're forced to email documents to yourself and then print them out from a computer lab.

Though I will say that examsoft seems to work better for me than my PC using classmates.


Not true, I have a Mac and I'm able to use the self-service printing.


Witchcraft!


Maybe someday I'll teach you my ways. :D

Who knows when the next decisions will be released, gin. Maybe this week? Maybe next week after deposits? I just don't want to pay any school a deposit that isn't Pitt, but we will see what's meant to be.

I know deposits are due for some people the fifth so I was hoping we would hear by the 10th the latest. If I don't hear by the 6th or maybe earlier then I'm going to have to send a deposit so that it gets to the school in time.
Why do they have to have that budget fight when deposits are due. I know funding the government is kind of a "big deal" but I'm gonna end up wasting $250 if I'm accepted at pitt...that's so inconsiderate of them

We applied late. It is better to be in the stack of apps that are going to go through to admit than to have been rejected already. (I hope this is what is going on, anyway.) I am not trying to play devil's advocate, but I would be just happy to get in and to get what I worked for as a change of pace from the pretty terrible past two years I've had.

+1. I went to ASD last Friday, really loved it, but just decided that I can't justify the extra cost, when other schools are giving me more money. Good luck everyone, pitt law seems like a great place!

Yeah, its super aggravating this close to deadlines.

I wrote them an email asking them when they will make a decision and then asking about a tour, and the response i got was:

"I will forward your continued interest on the admissions committee."

Nothing else. It was a real turnoff honestly.

It was the first school I applied to and I have heard from a lot of other schools.

It's their loss if they don't let you in.

Actually I applied mid November. I do realize my numbers aren't the best though

I apologize - I didn't know people had been waiting that long. No news is good news?

In my case no news is most definitively good news (I hope)

Don't you live like 10 blocks away. Why not just walk to the school and ask them in person? They cant really jerk your chin as easily in that circumstance.

No, actually I work downtown part-time for a lawyer. That's what I meant when I said I could be there in 10 or 20 minutes. Funny you say that though, because if admitted, I plan on just showing up with my deposit soon after. I will consider showing up if it goes past this week and I have no decision - I get a bit nervous in scenarios like that where it is so important to me though.

Yes, you're probably going to hear soon. MY UR date for WVU changed from 2/1 to 3/29 and I was admitted on 3/31. Goodluck!

Open house was great, everyone was really friendly, and full ride, so looks like I'm going.

Does anyone need a roommate? I have lots of friends in pgh, but I don't think any of them would be good to room with in law school. If anyone is looking for a roommate- (I'm female) PM me and let me know!

with its close proximity, how well does Pitt place in Cleveland?

Not sure, but if you want Cleveland, you're probably better off going to Case or OSU.

I'd guess it would place as well as any non-Ohio Tier 2 school. If you do go to Pitt, I wouldn't go around Pittsburgh saying you want to move to Cleveland :wink:
