She seemed to enjoy that answer. But besides that, I don't even remember being asked any other questions.


Cool thanks. If I get in I'm pretty sure I'll be sending in my deposit.

Based on ur stats, they're probably going to advise you not to do SCALE. I don't want to be rude, I just don't want you to get your heart broken like other ppl in this thread. PM me if you have questions abt it.

Who are you talking to? Not that I don't believe you, but I find it hard to believe that someone in admissions would tell you not to mess up the opportunity to attend their law school and to withdraw from all other schools. It just sounds strange.

She told me to call back today to check up on my status, she said it looks really good. I asked her is it okay for me to withdraw from other schools that I've applied to to attend SW and she said yes it's safe to do so. Then she told me not to mess up this chance that they are giving me.

Alright...I still find it strange that someone would volunteer information like that, but congrats on your acceptance! Are you part-time day or evening?

About $1500 max, that's pretty much what I pay in Boston right now..and conveniently what SW puts on their budget calculator!

In review since 1/8 - Any other holdouts out there with similar time in review or should I start making calls? I'm their median LSAT and above GPA and i've heard nada.

It would be nice to hear something very soon so I don't start wasting deposit money.
