Commuting is a bad idea.That is two hours of studying that you will not be doing, that your competitors will. Try to get something closer if possible, it will really help.

Well I'm gonna stay a couple nights a week at my parents house to cut down the commut and might also take the train occasionally to give myself more study time

So what's the point of posting that article on this thread?

Not a Chapman student, but spent some time this summer doing research/work there. Beautiful facilities and seems like a great community. Wish that Bruxie place was in the town I lived in. So good.

This might be unconventional and a tad bit OCD, but could someone recently admitted off the waitlist PM me their stats? Just to help me make some decisions.

Ok so I realize that came across as trolling...so fml I apologize. 8)

It was not meant to be mean spirited at all. I go to Chapman, I love Chapman, and I want you guys to succeed at Chapman. However, I came into law school thinking I could beat the recession, and I discovered there is a surplus of lawyers and it is really hard even graduating with a J.D. I only wanted to post that article because I know there are recent "admits" who are considering whether they should attend law school or choose a different career. I believe it is perfectly relevant for entering law students to read an article about how law schools function, and how unattractive the job market looks.

With that said. I sincerely, want people at Chapman to succeed and I will be around if anyone wants help!

I applied late and gave them a bit off leeway for that but...I withdrew from the waitlist. I got in at the other two schools I applied to (late as well) and would rather go somewhere that can process an application and give me a decision within five months :roll: . I'd have more respect for a place that flat out denied me rather then string me along thinking they are so desirable I will drop everything to go there.



LOL. They emailed me 7-5 asking if I wanted to stay on the wait list. I emailed back that day saying, "No, drop me off the wait list." Today I checked to make sure it went through. On 7-8 they updated my status checker to "Denied." :roll: Must help pad their numbers to say they denied someone instead of posting that I withdrew. Thanks Chapman for confirming my decision to go to your closest competitor.

Which closest competitor are you choosing over Chapman?
I just received notice this morning that i'm on Chapman's waitlist...
I wish i knew what my chances are considering it's so late in the admissions cycle.

ive been on the waitlist for almost 3 months and also am probably about to officially commit to the closest competitor. at some point, you have to plan in order to give yourself a reasonable amount of time to get situated.

Hey guys if anyone was curious about transfering out from Chapman read my past threads.

FYI
The number 2 guy form Chapman was able to get into UCLA, I was able into Notre Dame and was rejected everywhere else. I decided to stay so I will see all you in the fall!

With all due respect, being number 2 from Chapman will only get one into UCLA is not very exciting. It's a huge leap but still not clear t14 school.

I know you are trying to be helpful, and I appreciate it.

Do you mind my asking your stats and schools you applied to?

I'm actually quite surprised by this. Being #2 in your class is quite an accomplishment. I'm guessing your LSAT and other factors are still being weighed when it comes to the heavyweights.

Hey Guys,

For anyone interested I got more information about the transfer cycle from Chapman this year.

3 went to UCLA
2 went to USC
1 went to Pepperdine
1 went to Cardozo

No one was able to crack the T14.

Received my acceptance to Chapman about a week ago, and it was definitely a game changer. I had been planning on McGeorge, but received a much better offer from Chapman. So, as of now, it looks like I will be moving to Orange this summer :).
