IR since 2/22 and no change... I think next week puts me at 12 weeks. I visited last week and they really had no info as to how much longer the review processes would take, I was given the same answer I got when I called 2 weeks prior... "in a few weeks."

Loved a lot about the school when I visited though I have to say the guy who gave me the tour was really hard to understand and seemed pretty disinterested, besides that it was great

You just perjured yourself buddy, and may it please the court of the interwebz, I present evidence proving said perjury.

bro i've seen you around and i know you're headed to sw but you really shouldn't get so blatantly offended when theres even the remote possibility for someone to talk some sense about your future school, as i've seen you do in the past. I'm still waiting for a decision from southwestern along with all the others who've been waiting for several months now and frankly any school that's lagging this late past all other school deposit dates is pretty lame, and esp as a t3 school I think they're just really hurting their chances at matriculating some quality candidates who've probably already made up their mind by the time they receive their acceptances.

Congratulations on gaining a reputation before even starting classes at SWL. You're lucky this forum is anonymous, although I suspect if it weren't you'd have stopped posting by now.

You know, maybe I should stop posting on here, you are right. I am making myself look like a total jackass. I truly am sorry if I offended anyone, this whole process has stressed me out and hazed my judgment, I was very hypocritical and I was also very inconsistent with my thoughts. Once again sorry guys.

Hey, this kind of humility does not exist too often in the world, and certainly not on TLS.
I am impressed.

Its good to be back on track and use this opportunity to help each other in this forum.
You stay classy Oblivion 08.

The snappy grouchy stuff belittles us all.

So, let's carry on--

I am reading "Hard-nosed Advice from a Cranky Law Professor" and it is good. It is written by a Southwestern Law professor so for us that is an extra insight/bonus! It is an easy read, but helpful for those who are really unaware of the law school, study, reading, and work-effort expectations. So far so good....

I got it via Barnes and Noble with free shipping.

I dont know if that will help since they already know you are interested. I have been wait-listed since February. I dont think much has changed since that date.

if you live close, visit the school and explain how the visit made it even more clear that you really want to attend..

Received a call today offering admission to the part time (day) program. I think if I do part time I'd want to do the night program so I can at least work during the day. After explaining this to admissions, she said she would get back to me as to whether or not I can opt for the night program.

Anyone here in for PT night?

First post but I've been a lurker for quite some time now.

I also received a call today. I was on the waiting list for FT Day program but they offered me admission to PT Evening program. They also said I needed to attend a summer program. Packet and details will be sent by mail. I can't wait. :)
