I also go accepted to Suffolk Law, but I am unsure of how I would like the cold weather in Boston and the fact that I would have to stay there to work.

I moved from Boston to Texas last year and I would definitely recommend it. I was in law school for a few months and had to drop out because of my now ex husband to move here. However, law school is a lot cheaper down here because the cost of living in Boston is crazy. I love the warm weather in Texas but the cold weather in MA isn't enough to keep me away after I'm done with school. You should definitely consider going to Suffolk though! :)

Ok something looks different on my app checker site but it's not the status: am I going nuts or did they add "Country of Citizenship" and "LSAC Number" to the Bio/Address/Demographics square??? I swear that wasn't there before. And I'm from USA (born & raised in TX) so it's not something that stands out on my app... hmmmmmmmmmmm

I noticed that too and my heart jumped a beat thinking they finally made a decision. I guess they added that at the end of last week.

Me too! And naturally I'm reading into everything. What does it mean?!? They're torturing us.

NVM, It means nothing- my other status checkers did the same. Ugh.

I noticed the "Full (JD)" went to "full (JD)" about a week or so ago.
Also, I think they added the admissions email at the bottom of the page?

It's all driving me nuts, too!

I sent my seat deposit last Wednesday via Priority Mail and live in Houston. They should have received it Thursday or Friday at the latest, yet nothing has updated on the status checker. I sent them an email to see if they have received it... Hopefully USPS realized all these letters coming to the wrong zip code and figures it out...

FWIW I called and tried to see if they could tear or destroy my seat deposit check, since it has not gone through the bank. He said even though it wasn't processed, they won't work with me on it (non-refundable). They also said if I stopped payment on the check, they'd "bill me".

I mailed mine regular mail from Bryan last Wednesday and it updated to received deposit on Thursday, and I sent it to the 77009 zip code. I'd call them if I were you.

I'd still do a stop payment on the check. I highly doubt they will bill you. The administration at this school is a joke and they can barely tell the difference from their assholes and their mouths. Or at least, put a stop payment on it for me.

Yeah, I guess so :x . I was hoping they'd just help me out, seeing as this wouldn't really be "refunding", but I guess not. Its not worth the time/risk of paying the $25-30 to stop payment, then deal with any BS from STCL's administration. Oh well, I guess I'll file this one as "the cost of doing business" Hey, maybe someone can have my spot now!

I'd still stop payment. Save yourself $70-$75.
What, exactly, would the be billing you for?
"Please accept this bill for a voluntary deposit that you opted not to pay."
I don't think so.

Let them bill you, refuse to pay, let it go to collections, contest the debt with collections, by this time you should be graduated...sue their asses! :P

Yeah, after working on the legal side of these kinds of things (generally >$1000) it is just not worth it. In principle, possibly, but not in extra time, and risking another 30 bucks. I was just hoping they'd work with students, but I guess not...
Anyways, sorry for semi-derail, just wanted to give a heads up to the 2-3 other people who are withdrawing, or said so, recently, that they won't work with you on the deposit.
