I've been complete for the PT program since 12/1...
I know of only a couple people being admitted and they were w/scholariships...

They have rejected and waitlisted a lot of people who have applied before and mostly after me so I don't really know what they are doing. Law school numbers can give you a little bit of a better idea.

It seems like they aren't going to get to the remaining applicants they are considering for the PT program until they hear a response from the accepted students for the April 1st deposit deadline... That's just my guess at this point based on what I am seeing...

This most probably true... it's the way that most schools work. Good luck to all.

If you don't mind my asking, how did you go about getting the extension?


I did the same thing. Just email an admissions officer and ask.

So I got the answer to my question-- Accepted today, via status checker. They said they sent an email, but this is a lie. Acceptance package is in the mail. :)

Congrats! There was no indication of a scholarship on my checker, but i'm not planning on attending anyway. Good to get the nod, though.

This school is seriously ridiculous with the admissions process. I have been complete for over 4 months now. They have just about completely fallen off my radar and I'm likely to turn down an offer from them at this point. Way to go from being one of my top choices to out of the picture. I'm just baffled.

Just to reassure you, I was complete since the beginning of November and was only admitted today to the FT program. Took forever, and they were completely unhelpful when I called to ask what was going on.

Yeah I just told them that I am looking at other schools and that "this is a life changing decision" blah blah blah...just give them a good reason to make sure they extend it for you.

Can the people who got a full scholarship from St. John's and still withdrew let us know where you are thinking of enrolling/already enrolled?

Thanks alot.

Brooklyn. They gave me good money, and I will be living there anyway, so the commute/quality of life was the deal breaker.

Sounds like a good reason to me. I am pretty surprised at how small the scholarship from Brooklyn was. Only 14k per year. I noticed that many applicants got the same offer, along with much more significant scholarships from peer schools...
