No prob. Is there absolutely no way you could retake though? Because that would SERIOUSLY increase your chances if you got into the 160's.


I am really glad you asked me that - I wouldn't have even bothered to check out next date...

I am really glad you asked me that - I wouldn't have even bothered to check out next date, as have been so pessimistic. Just checked and I am not slated to be anywhere during next sitting - Feb 11th, so I will sign up, although I will be overseas all of January, and REALLY hard to study in my line of work, where the typical is 12hr days, 7 days a week when on deployment. But hell, I will give it a try. Holy crap, gotta crack the books open again. Where I lost all points was in the LG section. Thanks again!

Get a copy of the Powerscore Logic Games Bible. It worked miracles for me. Power through that, crack the 160s, and you'll be in business.

Good luck to you!

Does anyone know where the actual packet is online? I've logged in and waited a couple of days, etc. but do not see the acceptance packet online anywhere. I know they're sending acceptance info through snail mail but I want to see any scholly info online if possible. Impatient I know!

I asked the same thing because I had no luck finding any scholly info online either, and I even emailed the admissions office with no response. I guess we'll have to wait for it in the mail.

Scholarships won't be released until March. I don't remember where I read that... But otherwise I have no idea about any other scholarship information. And here is the link to the acceptance packet:

When they said Acceptance Packet, I figured they'd give out information that is actually individual-specific. This e-approach feels generic and very impersonal as compared to some of the other schools' ways of notifying you. Oh well, at least I'm in. Still waiting to hear back from other schools though.

im going to agree with some previous posters. went to visit this school. you have to take a transfer bus from the campus to the law school. and the school itself is already pretty close to maryland. poor location and an unworthy campus for the tuition they offer. just my 2 cents.

how are people feeling with these high tuition rates for poorly ranked law schools? do you guys think its worth it to attend a tier 2, and slowly creeping upwards, law school in this economy? ive been told if not in AT LEAST the top 30, then there's no point in going to law school unless you have some nice folks willing to give you a couple hundred k :lol:

My app complete date changed for the second time, went from 12/21 to 1/12. For those who got decisions, did your complete date change?

Yes I did. Mine also changed on a Thursday, no decision until the following Monday though (and this Monday is MLK Day, so keep busy and don't worry if status doesn't change tomorrow).
