I'd never checked Yale out on there, but Harvard owns them on firms that interview there. 536 to 289.


lol egregious fourth tier trolling by us, right?

You wanna see egregious fourth tier trolling, check this out:
Law firms in Houston that interview at Yale-9
Law firms in Houston that interview at STCL-11

Ergo, if you wanna work in Houston, it's better to go to STCL than Yale.

yeah Im sure that top 10% at STCL would give good chances at big law position in litigation, since they are really good at it.

Thanks for reminding me about the admitted student reception. Do you know if they have an actual admitted student weekend...where we talk about financial aid, book lists, schedules, campus services, etc?

Does anyone know if PT students are eligible for scholarship money? If yes, are they awarded separately or grouped in with the FT students?

I don't know, I would think they would have one, but I haven't received anything to that effect. Which of the receptions are you gonna go to?

My status has said "incomplete application" since 3/4, and I am almost positive it is complete. Could this just be a lag in their status updating? Any ideas?

It goes from complete to decision, no in review dates.

No, had a new LOR received a week ago, but all my other apps are under review, and they received this LOR at the same time I assume.

Hmm, id put money on this inarguable fact: South Texas College of Laws admissions are the worst out of every law school accredited or not in the entire country and possibily the world :) Prepare for a long miserable dissapointing wait. I don't know if i could stomach to go to this school after all this even if they do let me in

Sorry not trying to get you too down on South Texas, Dtown, but 9 weeks of checking status checkers and applications complete will not give you rosy smiles and bubblegum dreams when thinking about the School.
