Thanks, I was able to log into myAwards, but my award is not yet available. :? I filled out need access back in February.

Honestly, I've heard great things about Davis. I'm planning to visit the campus this weekend to compare to Hastings. On the other hand, I live in the Bay Area and wouldn't have to relocate to attend Hastings. It's a tough call.

Numbers in profile.

I only sent the waitlist response. Never sent a LOCI.

Congrats!

I was told that financial aid should be posted by tomorrow morning. Since we only have a week to make a decision, I'm planning to drive out to Davis this weekend. Have you visited the campus?

Are your financial aid packages including merit aid?

Admitted a few days ago and have been doing as much reading as I can about the school. To be honest, the employment prospects are scaring me a bit. What's everyone else's sentiment on this?

The Bay Area legal market is in bad shape. Regional schools are getting hit particularly hard.

I liked that they posted more specific information on their website for the Class of 2011 already than in years past, no? http://www.law.ucdavis.edu/prospective/ ... stics.html

It seems like the situation is bad at most schools out of the top 14-16 though. Definitely falls off after USC/UCLA. I'm deciding between Davis or going out of state with more money to a smaller market (AZ) but less saturation. Thoughts?

Anybody get this today (or recently)? I got something similar from another school and declined the offer, but everyone else who got it and reconfirmed their interest was accepted within hours.



This email is a request for reconfirmation of your interest in continued consideration for admission to UC Davis Law School. Even if you have submitted an earlier reconfirmation, please do so at this time. Although your name is currently active on our waiting list, we realize you may have been required to make alternate plans and may no longer be in a position to accept an offer of admission if you are selected. We would like to use our time and yours as efficiently as possible by asking you to once again confirm your interest in further consideration.

BEFORE YOU RESPOND, please consider carefully whether you are truly interested in receiving and accepting an offer of admission from UC Davis Law School. We hope that you are! If an offer is made, the response time may be short. You should assume that there may not be time to visit the school. If you have not submitted both of the required financial aid forms, you might want to read through the information at the financial aid website to find out what you need to do. If you have additional questions about our programs or curricular offerings, the time to get that information is before you reconfirm. Our website contains a wealth of information and you may email questions to admissions@law.ucdavis.edu. We will be happy to answer your questions in order to help you make an informed response to this reconfirmation request.

If an offer of admission is extended prior to June 15, you will be required to pay the first non-refundable seat deposit of $250. If an offer of admission is extended on, very near, or after June 15, YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO PAY BOTH THE FIRST AND SECOND NON-REFUNDABLE SEAT DEPOSITS TOTALING $750.

Please consider all of the above very carefully before you reconfirm.

As quickly as possible, and no later than 5:00pm on Friday, May 25, please complete and resubmit the waiting list response form located at the status check website. Select the "Reconfirmation" option. DO NOT reconfirm Yes unless you are definitely prepared to make a decision if an offer of admission is made and remember that means paying a non-refundable seat deposit.

If you are no longer interested in being considered, please complete the form and indicate that you would like your name removed from further consideration.

Thank you for your continued interest in UC Davis and for your cooperation in this reconfirmation process. I hope to receive an affirmative reconfirmation response from you by or before 5:00pm on Friday.

Yep! I just received that email. I actually thought I had been accepted when I saw the email address from "admissions@law.ucdavis.edu." Not yet...

I don't think it's a guarantee though. I was told by at least two other people who were previously waitlisted at UCD that they got emails like this throughout the summer, and they were never taken off. But I want to be optimistic, so maybe tons of people will be taken off the waitlist starting next week....or tomorrow!!!

I also just got the mysterious reconfirmation e-mail. I said yes, though it's going to take a chunk of money/ice cream/free kitten to make me change my mind at this point.

Officially heading to Davis come August. Withdrew from the other schools I'd been considering (and sadly deposited at).

Accepted off the WL by e-mail last night. Kind of excited? No word yet on a free kitten.

Best line from the message: "Please do hesitate to let me know if I can answer any questions."

Congrats. Any scholarship offer in lieu of a free kitten?

Congrats!

I LOVE Davis's communications. This is an excellent addition to the WL letter itself, which included gems such as "Don't panic..." (it was otherwise silent on whether we should always carry a towel), "All available information is included in this letter" (don't bug us, 'cuz we know nothing), and "If, by August 19, it appears unlikely that you will be offered admission for Fall 2012, you will be so advised" (school starts Aug 20... if classes start without me getting in, you don't really need to advise me at that point).
