It could have been a coincidence, because my status had already changed to "Part time". If you want to send an LOCI, keep it to one page and be specific about the types of programs the schools has that fit your future career goals. I start on 5/29. Good luck.
Are you just in for the summer program or for the fall as well? The way I understood the summer session was it was designed for those IU thought would benefit from the courses but it no way implied future admission into the law school.
I think they've changed the website regarding what it says about the special summer program. It used to say that students in the SSP matriculated into the fall semester regardless of performance in the SSP. Whether or not this has changed recently I don't know, but it used to be the case that once in that program you were admitted.
Q: How do I apply for the special summer program?
There is no special application procedure for the summer program. Applicants who are not regularly admitted are considered for summer admission. However, applicants should submit their Law School application form by February 1 to be considered for this program. Students selected for summer admission include applicants the Admissions Committee determines can benefit from a rigorous, individualized summer course. We highly advise applicants who are interested in the summer class to take the LSAT no later than December.
The Special Summer Program through IU Robert H. McKinney School of Law provides instruction in legal writing and a substantive law area. Continuation in the fall semester is not contingent upon performance in the summer program. No additional application is required to be considered for this program; all applicants whose files are complete by February 1 will be given priority consideration. Selection for the summer start is made by the Admissions Committee. Students typically selected for summer admission are those the Committee determines can benefit from a rigorous, individualized summer course.
It used to say something about being admitted directly after the course...they've either just re-worked their website or changed the policy. that would be a question for admissions....my guess would be that if you are allowed to do the special summer program,you'll be admitted. Otherwise why not waitlist them until the semester starts?
