I wouldn't be so sure. Yet another anticlimactic date change with no accompanying news is only mildly, if any, better than not getting an update at all.

Just checked mine...still UR 1/18/13. Held over from ED for RD (allegedly)...well U of A deposit is due Saturday so if I get accepted it'll probably be next Monday.

In too. Been almost a month since an acceptance (four waitlists and a ding in that time). Refreshing. Congrats to everyone else!

Ok and with that I shall abandon all hope. /rage_quit


Though just to poke those OOS who were accepted...got In-state even though I'm OOS as an ASU undergrad. Congratulations to everyone who got in, please promptly call them and turn down their offer so there is room for me...

Sincerely,
Sad-splitter

Tips they do not tell you:

-Do not have your parents or anyone else claim you as a dependent on their taxes if they live outside of Arizona. They will look back two years from the start of your 2L year. This two years is the kicker- on everything else they are looking for one year, but on taxes they look at 2. If your parents have already claimed you for 2011, have them amend their taxes to remove it. Hell, have them amend their 2010 taxes if they can. It is worth at least 40k to you if you go to ASU. If your parents have claimed you in the last two years it creates a 'strong presumption' that you do not intend to reside here permanently. I've never heard of someone overcoming it, including people that have long term job offers. *This is probably the most important thing you never hear*
-SEVER any documented connection to your home state. I am talking about a my-leg-is-wounded-in-the-civil-war amputation. Close all bank accounts in your home state and open new ones in Arizona (it matters and is better than transferring bank accounts). Register your car here even if you have time remaining in your home state. Move any licenses (like gun carry permits) here ASAP. Notify your MVD in writing that you are no longer a resident, get an AZ DL. DO THIS AS SOON AS YOU CAN AFTER DECIDING TO GO TO ASU. The earlier the better. Retain all documents, make sure they are dated.
-Register to vote in Arizona AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, possibly before you even have a place to live. Arizona voter registration allows you to describe where you live if you do not have a permanent residence. Describe the law school intersection. If you are not comfortable with this admittedly dubious option then get a mailboxes etc box for voter registration on a visit, or at the very least register ASAP when you get a home address. More time having a DL and as a voter= more likely to be 'resident'. Notify your home state that you should not longer be registered as you are not a resident.

BEFORE SCHOOL STARTS you want no paper connection to your home state, and evidence that you severed it, and tons of paper connection to AZ. You also want some evidence that you financially support yourself. Loan documents should cover that, but make sure any family support you get is less than obvious. The earlier the better on anything, and it is worth at least 40k to you. Be diligent on this like you were for the LSAT or your applications- you are applying for a $40k+ scholarship.

This process isn't hard, but parents claiming you on this year's taxes and you keeping your home state DL will kill you every time, and these two trip up a lot of people.

You can PM me questions about this topic or generally, I am always willing to help out incoming students if I have the time. Also, if you want some advice from an ASU law student that has been through this and other BS, then I can provide insight.

Good thing I am an AZ native and the folks live there :)

Think there's any chance of getting in state first year?

Even funnier is that I will actually be in AZ this weekend. However, playing golf wins over touring ASU's law school every time.

Also, teiswei, you and I should always wait until someone posts a buffer between our posts.

My buddy's family lives in Desert Mountain, so we're going to play a few of the courses there. Definitely looking forward to it.

Moreso because it makes the entire page look like it's being overtaken by David Duchovny fanboys.

And there are some good courses out there. Expensive season though, so enjoy that ha.

Yeah, it's going to run us about 190 a round. Oh well. I have spent money on dumber stuff.

I'm in. I'm assuming $$ info will come next week and that there would be no point harassing the financial aid office now?

You hope financial aid packages will come next week. I and several others were accepted the 13th of march and told to look for the info the next week and still have not received them.

Maybe they will send ours together with yours?
