Sounds like my attitude towards my PS sometimes.

I submitted my scholar merit award app with my application, I hate letting things go. I also wasn't going to request an interview because there's nobody even remotely close to me to do so, but I'm gonna request a phone interview.

I got decision mailed yesterday, haven't received anything though.

Looks like last year the first round of wl/dings came in late December so happy thoughts!

I think you have to make an account on their website. Virtual VLS or something like that. It should be the same account you used to schedule an interview, if you did so (if you didn't, you should still be able to make an account).

Yeah, I know but it's very confusing. It says to update your profile with your LSAC number and then I go through my profile and there is no place to put my LSAC #. Annoying..

Finally found it, thanks! Just complete ;/. I requested an interview today since it's the last day. I suppose I can always cancel if it doesn't work out.

You can still interview before your app is in. Request it! It may be mid December by the time you get your interviewer and agree on a time anyway.

I spoke with someone in the admissions office, and he said they don't start considering them until the deadline. So, you could apply now, and then submit the law merit scholars app later. He said that wouldn't hurt my chances of getting the scholarship

I say request one because you never know how long it will take you to set it up and everything.

I agree you should schedule an interview. You can interview before applying so do it. The interview is with an alum and it's a pretty laidback informational interview.

okay so in a rush to schedule an interview before the deadline which is like 10 minutes i have scheduled an interview. regarding the virtual vuls site, am i able to edit the interests and stuff after I have registered? I signed up in a hurry and didn't read through half of it.

also, what exactly do they usually ask in the interview?
