I am very surprised we have not heard more ... I know quite a few in state applicants that still have not heard anything and are still "in review".............

I had a friend that just got a rejection letter and his status checker never changed ... makes me nervous!

She did a phenomal job of being a spokeswoman for Law School. Especially for those going to law school for altruistic reasons.

Is she single?

The only turn off was that she said she had no idea what she wanted to do with her degree when she graduated. She got us all excited about law school and the great good we could do with a law degree and we were all ready to bite the hook but then she told us she has no idea what she will do with her law degree.

She still has no idea what she wants to do with her degree. Don't mistake that sentiment, though. She wants to do so much, her specific area of focus remains difficult for her to narrow down. I think she's getting there, though. She's still got a year left.

She is happily married :).

Same here, pretty surprising considering this is my state school. Not happy at all about this.

I wonder what the odds of getting off this list are, and when?

I don't mean to be a pooper, but I went to ASD and talked with a few of the students. Every single student that I talked with had a full ride scholarship too. Sample size about 15.

All them told me they weren't seriously considering UNLV until they got the scholarship information. A large group of us talked after the ASD presentation and each one of them told me they were going to attend UNLV simply because of the full ride. They were going to turn down schools like Georgetown, UCLA, U of A, George Washington, UC Davis, and U of Utah to take the full ride.
Days after ASD, UNLV sweetened each of our scholarships.

All I have a clue about is the ~15 people I talked with during and after the ASD.

If all ~75 students at the ASD each had full rides I don't think there is any way there will be much movement on the waitlist.

A reason though to believe the waitlist will move a lot is that when I called Elizabeth to find out about paying my deposit, she seemed pleasantly shocked that I would be attending UNLV.

And as a point of clarification, the student that was turning down GeorgeTown to go to UNLV stated the only reason she was doing that was because she had a 6 month old daughter and her Mother was going to take care of her while she went to law school and she was from the area.

BTW, does anyone know why Nathan Neely left and where he went?

I was at the first ASD and was admitted in December. I don't have a full ride scholarship.



Did he get another job?

You didn't get any scholarship? Are you instate?

I don't know if he got another job. I'm instate and I got a 1/3 scholarship.


Nathan Neely is now with admissions for University of Houston Law School.
