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?



I applied to their part-time program. I don't think they offer part-time spots to full-time applicants (at least I hope not.. :? ) Am I wrong to think this??

I can't compare to Southwestern, since i really don't know what they are going through. Here at chapman, people are hopeful. I know people with interviews, but so far i don't know anyone who has actually lined up a job (1Ls i mean.) Lots of people got interviews through the UCLA public interest law fair. That takes place this weekend i believe so we'll see if interviews turn into offers. The school's spring OCI has a very limited number of employers (like 6 firms, seven or so public interest type employers, OC DA's office etc.) Its too soon to say whether jobs will materialize from this. There's a government career day in March. Other than that its everyone for him/her self. As a 1L i can't tell whether sending unsolicited resumes from chapman is any more successful than doing the same from southwestern.

Definitely check it out before ASD. I went yesterday, actually. Sat in on a crim law class and took a tour. It was nice to be able to see the school and students as they really are. I had a great experience and am so glad I went. I recommend it.

But, I'm looking for a school with a "vibe" I agree with. I don't want to be absolutely miserable for 3 years if I don't have to.

Do they YP at Chapman? I don't think I'm exactly YP material, but I can't figure out why I've been in review for a quarter of a year now- according to the date on my status checker.

If you don't mind, how long after you sent it in did it register as "complete?" Or did it go straight from "incomplete" to UR?

I have very, very similar numbers as you, but I got absolutely nothing in scholarship money. Hopefully they're lenient in leveraging scholarship money, cause I do not think I will be attending if they don't.

Did you mean IR, or is there a UR status too?!
'Cause if that's the case, and I sent months ahead with numbers slightly higher I think I quit. My cycle has been largely dependent on Chapman for some reason I won't disclose, so now I'm just getting worried.

Congrats though!! I hope you get the money you're looking for. I know according to ABA the median grant was like 28k

I tried to leverage scholarship $ from them and got nowhere, even though I have gotten substantial $ from other schools that are ranked much higher than they are.

When I spoke to admissions about it, they didn't sound like they really cared. Pretty much blew me off.

Looks like I'll be freeing up one more spot.

Just got the flyer for Scholar's Weekend in the mail... A little disappointed that it's not a cruise like last year though :( Oh well, pretty sure I'll be there anyway! Anyone else going?

Is the Scholar's Weekend pretty soon in later in the spring? My app is still "incomplete" but I'd really like to go if I get accepted.

According to threads from last year it was a cruise out of Long Beach harbor or something, but this year it's just at the campus. They have you stay in a hotel however, and shuttle you back and forth. Its March 31-April 2.

how do you think they'd feel about bringing a guest? could they come to all the events and see everything do you think?

last year people brought SOs. They came to the social events-dinner, the cruise etc, but not to the actual law school stuff, like the mock trial/class tour etc.
also, its pretty lame that there's no cruise this year. that was fun.

what if my SO wants to see all that stuff (mock trial/class tour), did they not go because they didn't want to or because Chapman would rather they didn't? Thanks for answering, i'd be afraid to ask admissions all this myself :P

Same here. Very very similar numbers, only slightly higher numbers for GPA and LSAT. And if that means no money, I'm screwed. Chapman was the key piece in my law school selection process strategy, and If I get no money that's all going out the window- along with leaving NJ for CA :cry:

i don't know, i just noticed they weren't there. Chapman will bend over backwards to make you happy, that's what scholar's weekend is about. I'm pretty sure you can do whatever you want.

Thank you and TBH I'm not sure. I've received a few acceptances from slightly higher ranked schools and I'm still waiting for the admit packet to see if I received a scholarship.

Good luck to everyone still waiting on a decision. I know it's been one hell of an emotional roller coaster for me so far.
