SUBMIT ASAP! It's getting late in the cycle and it'll be harder the longer you delay submission. May I ask why you are taking the LSAT again? You are over Chapman's 75% UGPA and LSAT.

I agree. Don't wait, your numbers are fine and having a graduate degree will work in your favor. Apply!

I just submitted as well, but I doubt I will get in. How could I not with a fee waiver though? So, how does this status checker work and where do I find it?

Ahhhh! I am going to go insane then. They just ordered from LSAC this morning. I am behind the curve, I know, but they are my top choice locally. Too bad chances are slim. :-(

Ok, I submitted it to LSAC just now. I guess I didn't realize how relatively ok my numbers were. I wanted to try and be really high above a 159 to ensure acceptance and a good scholarship package. I feel like a dummy. Does anyone know how often they order from LSAC?

his lsat is right at the 75th and his gpa is below median. i doubt a full scholarship is realistic. Taking in feb might be too late to help with money. you may want to reapply next year with a higher score

Someone said this is equivalent to staying in the top third of the class... Is this true? And who would I contact to ask about approximately what percentage of students keep their scholarships? Thanks!

3.0 is about top 37%. Financial aid people will give you an exact number on how many keep it. I think its only like 65%.


It's not hard keeping your scholarship as long as you do the work they ask you to.

Can any current Chapman students attest to how employment from Chapman is like right now? Is there a clear benefit to attending Chapman over another local school such as Southwestern?

hi, just wondering if you specifically applied to their part-time program. or did you apply for their full-time program and Chapman just offered you a waitlisted spot for their part time?
