Q: Since there is now a big scholly attached, do you see the admission criteria changing for the BED program now?
A: At this point, I do not anticipate a change in criteria.
Q: Soooo, what you are saying is that the only thing that has changed with the BED program between last year and this year is the guaranteed scholarship?
Lots of Q's about "criteria". As I stated above, I do not anticipate a change in criteria. We are still looking for applicants with strong academic credentials (LSAT or GPA). We are also still looking for interpersonal skills, work experience, and all our traditional soft factors. In contemplating the new program, we ran a bunch of possible scenarios/projections regarding the applicant pool. Bottom line, we are going into the cycle planning on accepting "splitters" (both forward and reverse) under the ED plan. If you have further questions, I am here to answer them. I need to go pick up my kids from daycare before I scar them and have them incur therapy for years.
Hmmm...yeah, okay, you're right. I thought I remembered there being some additional information that muddled things, but I can't recall. I think it was in regards to the more extreme splitters, which should still be taken via RD. Anyway, I doubt anyone below the 25th will get ED, but who knows!
