Just finished my 1L at a tier 1 school (where I got in two weeks before classes began and so withdrew from SW), but was last year admitted to Southwestern's SCALE, then part-time day (I have 3 kids), then evening and then full time day!! It was strange, as every time I asked to change, they just sent me an acceptance package! They seem to take a LOT of people off their waitlists very late in the game, so if you really want to go there, send a LOCI, another letter of rec. and be sure to visit. If you look back on TLS last year, there was a huge amount of movement mid-May to end of July. The campus is really great and everyone I met there couldn't have been more welcoming. I actually sometimes regret having made my other choice, and might even take some elective summer classes there next year before 3L! I must say, however, that I think that you'd have to have a really good reason to put yourself through the misery of a two year program with SCALE!!
Good luck and any questions I will try to answer re. the application process. Good luck to all.
