I've heard it is better graded. Depending on what you do, writing is going to be a key element to a successful practice.

Truth. It's not the graded legal writing that scares me, it's the everything we take is going to be graded that scares me.

Maybe ive been careful to try and not give out too much personal info :-) I hope they arent and they are working round the clock to get out acceptances/rejections/scholarships. But maybe thats why they are takign so long they are reading the 40 pages of complaining we have here

I'm sure they have much better things to do with their time than reading pages upon pages of us complaining about them not emailing us. Reviewing our files, for example.

+1 on the amount. Not withdrawing yet, but it's definitely possible.

ETA: There's a 3.0 GPA stip. on this amt. (Dean's Merit Scholarship)
