I got third reserve. Language in the letter was optimistic, but chances are slim. Oh well. Good game, everyone.

Grats. Making 3 cuts is good I guess, right? Can't put "3rd Reserve at CLS" on your resume (well, I suppose you *could*, but you'd get laughed out of every interview), but it's...something.

As one of those on last year's 3rd reserve list, I can attest that no one on TLS said they got in. Many of us who had some type of connection also were informed that the class was way over-enrolled and they would not be taking people off the reserve last year. Maybe they did, but it was very few at most.

I talked to someone in the admissions office last Friday. He said that a large batch of "decision" letters went out that morning. But I feel like someone on TLS would have reported receiving a letter by now if that were the case....

Don't specifically remember getting one. It must have been end of August as class was starting.

I called today and flatly asked if decisions were going out for us third reserves. Guy on the phone said they were, and to expect something in the mailbox "very shortly."

Dare I ask?

Like email mailbox, or mailbox mailbox.... because that makes all the difference. :/ Did he specify?

I received a rejection in the mail today. I'm in Brooklyn, so it didn't have to travel far. The letter was dated August 16th.

Yeah, classes have begun, so I imagine that if you haven't heard by now, you're out. That said, I'm told the class is "Legal Methods" which is a two week or so P/F thing you take first. Since none of the substantive courses begin for another week or two, I suppose it is plausible for people to still be admitted this week. Theoretically...
