Yeah, I've been complete since mid-December too. And SC is also one of my top choices. Perhaps you could email admissions and ask them how far along they are in sending replies...

If you do that, tell us how it goes.

Well, I just took the LSAT again this morning. I had already notified every school to which I applied, including Dean Polden from SCU. I'll know on March 6 about my updated chances of gaining admission to SCU. It still remains my #1, and I'll be adding a 3rd LOR to my file in addition to the second LSAT score. Hopefully everything works out.

Congrats to all that have been admitted! You're all so freaking lucky.

To those of you that have withdrawn, I hope I am lucky enough to take the seat that you have vacated, and best of luck at whichever school you decide to attend!

Unlikely, though living in Cali is appealing. Waiting on a few T20, T10s which i'm WL'd at. Probably will withdraw shortly.

I'm relatively certain also. Planning on St. Clare Hall for housing. Pretty excited! PM me if you want.

Just got admitted today. Coming from an engineering background, this school is excellent for patent law. Very pricey at sticker though.

Does anyone know if SCU gives scholarships for part time students? Just got my employer to consider letting me go but I would have to apply this week...

Kind of late to be applying in hopes of getting scholarships as they are usually first come first serve. I would check out the financial aid section of their website and call the financial aid office.

Yeah I know. I applied in October the last time I did this, but unfortunately uncertainty with whether it was even a possibility to go has made things more challenging. Hoping my 169 might inspire them to see if they have anything left over for me but not terribly optimistic.

Probably means they're close to a decision. My date changed and I was accepted two days later.

My status checker date also changed today. First time since December. Hopefully you're right about their being close to a decision.

Were you notified via email or snail mail?
