A good GPA and LSAT; No; Either through CAS (by having a good GPA and LSAT), or by emailing the admissions office directly and asking for one, or if you qualify for the LSAC's need based one

lol'd. Don't paint an overly rosey picture. Most of the 3Ls I know do not have jobs. We're like any other T2 school. The top 20% or so will be alright, but below that it's a bloodbath without connections.

Ha ha, well, within reason, of course. Didn't mean to make it sound like they're getting jobs right and left. The point was, although not very clear on my part, employers don't give a shit about what went down a while back.

Yeah, the scandal doesn't seem to have done much. I still got my ass kicked at OCI though. 15 screeners, 2 cbs, 0 offers! Fuck.

In with 20k/yr. haven't received the acceptance packet yet...at school so hopefully it doesn't get sent home. If so, forwarding will ensue. In at Penn State, Temple, Villanova, and Drexel so far...9 to go.

E-mail as well as ASO status saying admission granted. On the ASO it says 5-7 days for a letter...still waiting. I believe because of the holidays, the business day thing was a bit confusing. Expecting it within the week.

Nova V. Temple.....not sure which to do...with scholarships Temple would cost more..but not sure if it's worth it...

Does anyone at Nova have an internship? How hard is it to balance that with a classes?
