I'm hoping to get that status indicator email asap.


I've heard that they don't send out a status checker email until the application has been processed, and last week I believe they were just finishing all applications submitted over winter break. I sent out my application on 01/09 and am expecting my status checker later this week.

I was concerned beacuse I received a quick response from UW, but was waiting on a response from SU so I contacted admissions.

Did anybody else get a TIME SENSITIVE mailing yesterday, roll their eyes, and open it to find a financial aid brochure?

Not cool, SU, haha.

Yep. Got it yesterday when I got home from work. Do you think this is an indication of anything?

Nope. =/ It's just something that they send to everyone who applies as far as I can tell. I applied and was accepted last year (didn't attend for financial reasons), and they sent out a few things like this that were all OMG MAIL FROM SU that was mostly just basic info/ads.

That's not the answer I was looking for.....but I think you are correct. Still keeping my fingers crossed though! If you were accepted last year I would think your chances are pretty good.

I tried to negotiate away the 25% stip back when I was considering SU, but they were steadfast. Maybe I just wasn't competitive enough. 3.75/160

You should be able to get at least 15k/year from several T30s


SU doesn't give out more than $20,500 (Washington State Law Scholarship) unless you apply to the named scholarships or you are Native American.


This is an interesting strategy. It seems like they would have a tough time attracting top applicants when they would still have to pay 20K a year and certainly be getting better offers at higher ranked schools. That being said, I don't think they have any problems filling out their classes, and it's a big law school.

I finally received my status checker for SU! It says my file went complete on 1/11 (applied on 1/9) and a decision should be made 6-8 weeks from that date. Currently my status is File Complete - In Review so now the real waiting begins. Besides UW, where I am a very unlikely candidate, SU is my top choice.

I'm also IN via status checker today. Why can't they send emails like everyone else.

Got my admit packet over the weekend. $17k/year, which I think is high for them, so I'm flattered. It's dependent on top 25% though, or you lose everything. Which is scary, to say the least.

They gave me the Trustee Law Scholarship, but it's only $8000 a year. I'd still be swamped with debt by the time I graduate. Meh.

Finally got my official packet. $7000/yr dependent on top 25%. Sounds pretty good beside the stipulation, percentages scare me; it all depends on how everyone does, not so much my own performance.

Any decisions today? I've heard that SU likes to update on Fridays and a quick glance through our thread would confirm that. I know that I am still a couple weeks out, but I'm always curious to see what numbers are making it in.

Good luck to all!

Applied last minute due to family circumstance; any trends anyone has noticed?
