Really hope the waitlist is not just a numbers game, but I have a feeling it is.

4/15 denied... oh well I wasn't too suprised. I'm withdrawing from Loyola today and will wait a year like that I can raise my LSAT score and get a super score to get scholarship offers! :)

good luck everyone!

From my experience last year, they don't reject people off the waitlist until late summer. Definitely not before the deposit deadline.

Thanks! I am definitely hopeful. I can't see the reason behind being wailisted and then rejected two weeks later. Ill keep everyone posted.

I faxed in my financial aid form about a week ago and haven't received any word back yet. How long did it take you guys to get your financial aid package? Anyone first hear about scholarships when they got their package?

I did.

It was nice... everyone seemed very professional and friendly. I would have screamed if one more person listed their number 1 reason for attending san diego as "the weather" though.

It also feels like your walking through the palais de papes or something. Very pretty campus. Add to this that rent in the area is extremely cheap for California (950 for something near the beach) and I am heavily considering USD if UCIrvine does not pull me off the waitlist.

I also went. Like dtl said, gorgeous campus and everyone was very professional and friendly. What I saw here that I didn't see at other schools' Admit Days were many professors and alumni who wanted to talk and were really excited to meet the incoming class. I had some really great discussions with a number of professors, and all of them assured me that they love having students come to their office hours, so it's great to see that the professors are not just research-focused and actually want to help students succeed. Also an interesting note, I talked to an alumni who teaches a course once in a while at USD who said that he's hired students in his courses for summer internships and jobs based on how they do, and that there are a number of professors who do that too. Ultimately, I feel like if you put in the time and effort to your studies, meet with your professors regularly, and utilize career services, you won't have trouble finding a job later. But that's just my impression, I could be totally off-based with this.

Personally, I'm still waiting on my financial letter, but I'm 90-95% certain I'll be going to USD (unless Pepperdine de-waitlists me).

I just noticed this little excerpt in my wailist email...

"You will be notified by e-mail or phone if the Committee is able to offer you admission. "

Not looking good. Damn.

If it helps, they only called/emailed people later in the summer last year. Everyone else got in via snail mail.

Hey guys,
I gave up my spot with about 20,000 a year in grants.

Good luck to all of the WL's, USD is an awesome school, I just didn't want to go all the way to CA when I'm from FL.
