Exact same dates. Nothing. They're closed today due to weather.

It's incredible what Alabama views as bad weather. Yesterday, my classes in Tuscaloosa were canceled because their was a chance of freezing rain... never happened.

I am losing interest in attending Samford. They are the last of the 12 schools I applied to, to make a decision. I sent in my application on 11/1 and I have been complete and in review since then. The date has changed several times with the last being on 1/27. While doing some research as to which school I should attend I came across this article: http://taxprof.typepad.com/taxprof_blog/2011/01/crowdsourced-.html

It really made me question whether I should even attend if accepted.

+1 Waiting this long is turning into an annoyance.

Yeah I applied here as well and haven't heard anything. I can tell you that there's no way I'll attend without some significant merit based aid

Hm. Mines still in review, but they changed the payment area or whatever to show seat desposits, so I assume im in. I expected to, it all just depends on the money. Any idea how liberal they are with $$$?

Good question, but I probably won't go unless I get a full ride. I'm way above their 75th%....

In via status checker. Applied day after Thanksgiving!
An attorney I work with went there and speaks very highly of their trial advocacy program and practical education in general. I think I'll have to decide on there or Mercer...

My acceptance letter was USPS mailed 2/11. I also saw "admitted" on my status checker. I was invited to interview for a scholarship March 28th.

Did you receive your email yet? I was accepted via status checker yesterday and mine said the same thing. I'm just wondering how long until the email comes.
