Penn State is too expensive and has poor job prospects, in my opinion. I'll probably be withdrawing soon even with a decent scholarship. I've gotten money other places and I don't feel like moving to a state with several other law schools already saturating the market.

Really? Cause the only schools your posts show you getting into are lower ranked Cali schools.

I really really really like the accessibility of the staff here, they've definitely set themselves apart by taking time to address each individual issue or question I've had so far. As a former Temple student, I'm not used to that at all.

About 10 weeks. I suspect, though, that this is not typical.

some have a very quick turnaround, others wait a very long time. Turnaround is obviously quicker when your numbers are above median or even the 75th percentiles, but for me, even that did not do the trick...

I just received an e-mail saying that they are prepared to offer me admission but first they would like to know which campus I prefer.
