Sad to see you go, Shock. Where are you transferring? Also aren't you in 434k debt already? You should like, not transfer and get CU to give you some more $$$.

Some people got money off the wait list last year. Just FYI.

Thanks for the info! It's getting pretty late in the process. Should I expect any more movement?

Of those of you who are at CU right now Randolph and Shock, do you find that CU really has an aversion to CU undergraduates attending their law school? I am quite disappointed cause I thought with a 3.4 167 I would have had a reasonable chance at admission but since it is July and was wait listed in January have pretty much given up hope. Just thought I would inquire about what the class demographics are in terms of CU grads being in the class. Also probably should have filled out that in state residency form earlier cause it seems like that might have given me a boost, oh well.

Hmm - I am a bit surprised that you didn't get automatically accepted with those numbers They are higher than mine (3.4/165), but I guess I ED'd as soon as the apps opened in the fall. Did you apply late? Maybe they filled the class early because of fears of dropping application numbers across the country.

And I wish I had a better answer to your question. There was certainly a handful of CU undergrads, but not tons of them. I think that would be the case anywhere, though (I'm sure some CU undergrads who go to law school don't want to go to CU, and it's clear that many people from other undergrads want to come to CU). If there is any sort of bias against its own students, I am not aware of it.

Also, as was said above, I also know of a couple of people that got in off the waitlist the weekend before orientation. Sucks, but they managed to make it out here and do just fine.

As was I, and no I applied I guess late by TLS standards but it was in early November. Additionally, I was surprised because I got into higher ranked schools that were my second and third choices with regards to CU. I currently live in Boulder and can live for free next year because of certain circumstances, so I am extremely flexible so hopefully it works out. Must of come off as just extremely boring or something.......... who knows

For the guy who lives in boulder with the decent numbers---

Have you sent a letter of continued interest? Go write a letter and have it proofread and revised by others 10 times. Let the last paragraph end with information about how you love CU, live in Boulder now, and would accept if you got a spot off the wait-list. (if true of course). Send it in with an updated resume of what you have been doing this summer, even if it is just bagging groceries.

CU has weird admissions but that should do the trick.


Edit-- hand deliver the letter and resume in a professional looking envelope. You live in Boulder! have a polite 25 second conversation with the admissions person you speak to with.

I just sent in via pdf a letter of continued interest on Friday to Kristine from admissions. Hopefully that will show them I'm legitimately interested and do the trick :)

For what it's worth, I withdrew my acceptance from CU last week after getting my June LSAT score. I went to CU for undergrad, graduated a year ago and applied in Jan. Didn't care for the ASW, but I still put my deposit down. My numbers were 3.4/163 when I applied.

Got a letter via snail mail today saying that they won't e admitting me off the waitlist.

Oh well, it was a long shot for me anyway. Looks like I will be staying in Denver this fall.

Did anyone else's status change to "Decision rendered"????? Is this bad news? Don't they usually send out acceptances through email?

My status says "Decision Rendered" on 7/16/12.

Sounds like I got a denial coming in the mail. :(

I'm assuming anyone actually pulled off the waitlist has been called, correct?

So on the application status website it went from "application complete" to "decision rendered"? Cause mine is still at "application complete".

Yeah, there's a 2nd decision rendered with a date. I'm assuming if you didn't get that you're still on the waitlist

UF is where I'm seat deposited at. Also still waitlisted at Emory. UF is a good school and all + in state tuition... but I'm ready to move away from FL I think.
