Does anybody know where I can find an actual class schedule for the May program? I can't seem to find one!

If you haven't heard back, odds are they put you on a maybe pile and are waiting for the February LSATs and the application deadline - as in, if there are (relatively) a lot of really strong new candidates, you're SOL, but if the revised pool is really weak you're in like Flynn.
Basically it can be considered a primary waitlist - if there aren't enough strong candidates (or a large amount of withdrawals), they'll accept people from the maybe list.
Then, once April rolls in, if there aren't enough seat deposits, they start pulling from the Waitlist.

Note: I have no factual basis for this. But I'm very good at figuring out why things are the way they are



i wouldnt throw out information like that with no factual basis..its only been a month, no need for automatic pessimism.. and you're ignoring the fact that people are beginning to withdraw



i now have first-hand knowledge that the info in that post was false...UR on 2/6, got the phone call today with a 25k scholarship.. so good luck to everyone!!!

Got into the May program today via voice mail. Do they tell you about any scholarship info on that, or can I assume I will not receive any?

Yes, they would have notified you about any scholarship awarded on the voice mail.

I'd be throwing away a lot of money from Hofstra and St. John's. It's going to be a real tough decision. I guess I just have to visit them and see what's the best fit.

And thank you!

In today to the May session. College graduation is on April 29th, so say goodbye to a summer. Super excited though.

Does anybody have any information on class schedules

Welcome to May!!! No Friday classes :) You should get the schedule and info a few weeks after you pay your deposit.

I actually sent an e-mail requesting the Summer schedule and just got it today; it says what classes we have, what days of the week, etc. You could e-mail them or PM me your e-mail and I can pass it along if you're interested. But yeah - no Friday classes :)

Same here! Maybe this means they're going to throw obscene amounts of money at us? Wishful thinking.

Oh just a heads up to everyone considering Cardozo. Not only have they dropped from 50 to 56 (no longer Tier I), they are going to be named in that class action law suit that is going on.

http://abovethelaw.com/2012/03/twenty-m ... -lawsuits/

Cardozo has lost a LOT of value and face to me in the past month. The idea of attending a law school which is being sued by former students for falsifying job statistics is unsettling.

i totally agree. after the ASD last month, i was really keen on attending cardozo, but the recent events (drop in rankings, potential lawsuit) have made me reconsider.

The drop in rankings is meaningless, as is the lawsuit. What matters is employment placement, and only employment placement, which is not a category that Cardozo excels at by any means (unfortunate reality). But, I'd have to disagree with your justification in deciding against Cardozo, assuming it is truly only based on this law suit & the drop in the BS/meaningless USNR.

FYI for those admitted into the May program and wondering about scholarships - because Cardozo considers the May program to be part-time, they do not award scholarships to May students.

Waitlisted today. Does anyone know if the chances of being accepted into the May start program vs. the chances of being accepted off of the waitlist are greater? How many students typically start in May? I was just in NYC this weekend (used to live there for 3 years) and now I wish I had never moved. Nothing beats NYC in my opinion :D

Yup! Def didn't expect that. I wonder if this scholarships has any special programs or mentorship related to it like some of the named scholarships at other institutions. If so, it would be def hard to pass this up.
