1. Someone on this site has a deposit deadline of May 18th...so I am not sure 16th will be the day they know how the class looks like..it could be before or later.
2. End of May is to late for those who have not heard back at all...it seems the people who answer the phones have no idea what is really going on...she prob just said that to end the conversation.

In the end.... there's always this:

Dear hypothalamus,

Enrollment continues at Savannah Law School (SLS), and we hope that you will strongly consider becoming a member of the inaugural class this fall.

You can apply on your smartphone or tablet at m.savannahlawschool.org or on the internet at http://www.savannahlawschool.org/apply or http://www.lsac.org; and let us know if you would like to attend our next open house on June 16, 2012.

We are excited about opening of the law school and sharing information about our scholarship program: The John E. Ryan Merit Scholarship

Each year, we will award the John E. Ryan Merit Scholarship to exceptional incoming students. This award is contingent upon acceptance into our program and is based upon your LSAT score and undergraduate GPA. The chart below illustrates the competitive scholarship program being offered by SLS.

LSAT GPA Award
153+ 3.0+ 100 percent
153+ 2.5+ 75 percent
150+ 3.0+ 75 percent
150+ 2.5+ 50 percent
148+ 3.0+ 50 percent

You would retain your scholarship as long as you remain in the top one-third of your class at the end of your first and second academic years (for Full Time students) or completion of 30 and 60 credits (for Part Time students). This is a tremendous opportunity.

That's what I call transparency!

Even if it comes with the following note:

The Dean is fully informed as to the Standards and Rules of Procedure for the Approval of Law Schools by the American Bar Association. The Administration and the Dean are determined to devote all necessary resources and in other respects to take all necessary steps to present a program of legal education that will qualify for approval by the American Bar Association. The Law School makes no representation to any applicant that it will be approved by the American Bar Association prior to the graduation of any matriculating student.

:D :D :D :D

Wow. This is shocking. JS1 -> Rejection is ridiculous.

I don't know what the fuck Harvard is doing. Sorry to hear, everyone.

+2 here. My guess is that they got their initial deposits back and realized they had a near-full class already, so they don't need a big hold list like they feared they would.

Oh well. I doubt any of us were really hurting for other acceptances... I'm content with my current (much warmer) choice. Also, I get to live with the knowledge that Harvard didn't reject me right off the bat like they did thousands of other people with way better numbers than mine. :D
