No problem.

Thursday : 4 - 7

Friday : 8:30 - 3:30ish

I could break it down by event and what not. Let me know if you'd prefer that.


Thursday is the Shoen Lecture from 4:00-5:30; afterwards is a reception for admitted students from 5:45-7:00. In case you have a 9-5 like me where the lecture portion isn't doable, at least the reception is. I'll be there from 5:45 onward Thursday, and then I took the day off so I'll be there all day Friday.

I'd think you have a decent shot of getting in. Your LSAT is below median, but your GPA is above. Assuming you're an AZ resident? That will help, too.

Relax. :)

EDIT: actually, I have no idea what the medians are. those are educated guesses as to what the median is. lol. You'd definitely have to be above their GPA median but I don't know what their LSAT median is. I'm thinking 162



Yeah I think you're right on the median things. pretty sure it's 162 and 3.6, so I'm pretty darn close. Here's hoping. I have a good feeling though - just think it's gonna take a little longer than some of you with high stats out there who got quick responses. And yes - AZ resident here thankfully.

I'm in (admittedly as an EA) with similar numbers and a small scholly to boot. Don't fret.

What are your stats? You can PM them if you'd like. Also, AZ resident?



For those of you going to the admitted students days, wanna have a TLS meetup? lol

Awesome man, congrats. When did you hear back from them? That makes me feel better. Shoot, and if a small scholarship was thrown in i'd be psyched.

I applied in October as an EA and heard back on the first day they were giving out admits (Jan 31 I think?)

Stats: 155/3.78. OOS with strong softs and lors. I was originally an EA applicant and was held.

Tough call. Your LSAT is quite low, but your GPA is stellar.

I'd say 50/50, right now.

Have you sent a LOCI? (letter of continued interest)

I sent an LOCI and an additional recommendation letter with updated transcript through first semester senior year (3.8). I've also been in continual email contact with Kathy.

I believe you're doing everything 'right', which should give you the best chances of getting in.

It's going to be tough, though, you're definitely borderline.

Good luck!!

Just called and talked to someone in admissions... The woman said that unfortunately the entire admissions committee was kidnapped by a Mexican drug cartel while attending an international law seminar in Juarez back in March and that an interim admissions committee was in the process of being formed for the sole purpose of waitlisting every applicant who applied after January 22nd indefinitely as the proposed annexation of the state of Arizona by some unknown magazine editor seems to be gaining more and more ground after a unified and effective Yuma-based, grassroots movement consisting of local chicano hairdressers and fashion boutique owners have managed to garner more and more support at the state level. When I asked about a timeline for decisions, the woman did not sound optimistic, though extremely nice and accommodating.

I call BS on this. I mean, kidnapping I'll buy; law seminar in Juarez, sure; privatization of law college, possible; state-wide acceptance of a Chicano movement, it could happen. But "a unified and effective ... grassroots movement"? It'll never happen!

Thanks man! Me too. I semi-wish ASU could read this forum and know who I am to see my significant interest. I just am so uncertain with the low LSAT score (155). I don't know whether to read that I haven't heard yet or not as a good thing or bad thing. I don't even know if they still have acceptances to hand out, or if I should just be hoping for a wait list at this point.

Hey all, this is my first post but I've been following this thread. I have my heart set on ASU, and like for many of you, the wait is driving me nuts! I was hesitant to submit a LOCI and/or additional LOR's because I had been advised by professors that it's not appropriate to do before a decision is made. However, it seems like it's the right thing to do if you want it this bad? haha. Is that the recommendation? I'd like to do anything that would help my case! Thanks!

Yea :) I've considered other options, but the COA is something I can't ignore. I'm pretty debt adverse so ASU has become ideal.
