I got my updated LSAT score today, and I improved by 20 percentile points :D . Now I just have to wait for my apps to be updated!

Does the LSAC send the scores automatically or do I have to send the reports again?

Oops, I was thinking about another school. I don't think Santa Clara dropped.

Trying to decide between Santa Clara University and the University of San Diego. Unfortunately I haven't received money from either and just recently updated my FAFSA to include USD. Paying full for both is... pretty daunting. I had an LSAT of 155 gpa of 3.3. Any tips or advice regarding a decision or means of paying for school would be great! Anyone else making a similar decision?!

@ thuyn011 - I was admitted to Santa Clara today. I don't know how much money yet, but yeah, 200K+ in debt for a degree is serious money. In regards to your decision, what kind of law do you want to practice? Where do you want to practice? Experience? UG major?

I got my acceptance packet without any offer of a scholarship. Safe to assume I won't be receiving anything?

Put my 1st deposit down! Going here!! I have not heard back from only one school - but it was a long-shot anyway, so I'm not holding my breath. :) Good luck to the rest of you in deciding!

ASD was pretty nice - it is a gorgeous campus, so it's hard to go wrong on a nice sunny cali day with palm trees all around... 8) lol. The day wasn't too long - they had some speakers/panels. Two short break out sessions to choose from to get more info about clinics. Everyone seemed friendly, met some students who were had also decided they were attending. Yummy buffet lunch! Campus tour wasn't different from tour I took back in the fall. -- Afterwards I went to peak at the inside of the fitness center - I loved it and it was pretty empty - nice size with serious weight side, less serious weights, and then lots of cardio machines. Also, I really like that the parking structure is on campus - so convenient!! It's the little things that will make our lives easier in law school that we will soon appreciate so much more :)

I hate waiting :evil:.

At least I'm getting out of town for a few days. Hopefully Dallas will take my mind off things. But I know I'll end up checking my application status repeatedly anyway.

Has anyone tried negotiating with Santa Clara for more money?

It seems they have pretty tough stips too. Top quarter seems a little steep, when most have been top half or third.

Still waiting also. I called the admissions office a week or two ago and they said that they are sending out a lot of decisions in March...hopefully not all rejections.

I emailed Dean Polden after I got my updated LSAT score, so I know they should be getting to my application soon.



Hopefully...

Shouldn't we be hearing from them soon considering seat deposits are typically due in April for law schools?
