Yes. Very much so. However, my worry of finding a job is not limited to LLS, but to California and the legal profession much more generally. I know I want to be a lawyer and I believe LLS is a solid school with a good rep. I do want to be able to make a decent living after school, though.

CA employment in general is a thread killer. Rough stuff.

Long time lurker, first time poster. DR 2/26/13. Waitlist letter received today. Loyola is a huge reach for me, so I'm pretty surprised. Anyone else planning on waiting it out? :?

If you're not at the top of your class at a good/decent school, its hard to get a job in almost any industry. Except if you want to be a doctor, from what I hear.

When is the deposit due? When do you have to accept your scholarship before it is forfeited?

Sorry can't find it anywhere. I'm useless. :oops:

I believe April 15th for accepting scholarships, and April 30th for seat deposit. I may be remembering incorrectly, though.

Would the school know if you put in a seat deposit at another? I'm on the wait list and would like to issue a deposit elsewhere in the event I don't get off the wait list.

I don't know how they could possibly know, unless they are cyber-stalking you and able to identify you from your TLS posts or they have an insider at the law school where you deposit.

However, in the highly unlikely event that they did know you deposited I don't see how any reasonable person could possibly hold this against you. You've already indicated that you intend to go to law school (by applying). If they don't offer you admission they ought to expect you will deposit some place where you have been admitted.

I think on May 1st / 31st.. forget which, LSAC releases to all the schools where you have deposited. so yes, they will see.

Seriously? How does LSAC know? Don't you deposit directly to the school?

Even still, no need to worry if a school that didn't admit you sees that you deposited elsewhere. Are you to sit on their waitlist indefinitely while they decide whether they have space for you, while your forgo the opportunity to attend any other law school in LLS's absence?

Multiple Deposit Notification

Each year, law schools that participate in LSAC's commitment overlap reporting service provide LSAC with information about applicants who have been accepted and have paid a deposit or provided a verbal or written agreement to attend their schools. Each spring, participating law schools receive periodic reports detailing the number of their committed applicants who have submitted seat deposits or commitments at other participating schools, as well as the identification of those other schools. Starting on June 15, 2008, those reports will also include the names and LSAC account numbers for all candidates who have deposits/commitments at multiple participating schools.

Interesting. Is this from LSAC's website? I still say it doesn't hurt for them to know. If an applicant has accepted at a perceived "better" school or higher ranked school he or she might be less likely to be admitted off of the waitlist.

However, if Lovelaw puts down a seat deposit at another school and sends a LOCI to LLS indicating a continued desire to attend LLS (perhaps even acknowledging the other deposit), I don't see how the seat deposit could be a liability. It is true that another seat deposit could show a resolve to attend law school even if that law school is not LLS, but holding out for a desired law school and eliminating the possibility of a back-up plan, I think, would be seen as foolish (and this would be foolish, if someone actually intends to have a seat at a law school come August). This is all simply only my opinion, of course.

So no one has had success negotiating more money from LLS, correct?

People have had success.

Withdrew yesterday, so that may open up a seat and some money for someone. Hope it goes to one of you!

Thank you both for your input. I agree with CO2016YEAH. It would be illogical to not hold my seat elsewhere while waiting to come off the wait list at LLS. I mean, if I don't get off it, then what am I supposed to do? I just hope that it doesn't deter admissions from reconsidering my application.

That's what an LOCI is for :)

Even past June 15th or whenever schools are aware that you've placed seat deposits at other schools, if you give them a fresh LOCI then they'll know you're still serious about switching to them if admitted.

I didn't have any luck... although I haven't heard of anybody who have been successful either. They didn't shoot me down, just told me to wait until they get closer to deposit deadline. Do you mind if I ask how much they're offering you?

I thought they had in previous years as well. It could be they are different types of awards/scholarships. My $90k indicates that I am a "Loyola Scholar," but there are evidently other scholarships.

--LinkRemoved--

What have they been calling the $96k awards?


I had a 90k offer at first (Loyola Scholar) and then contacted the office to ask them to up it, they increased to 96k, said they'll let me know about a potential full-ride offer in march (although I seem to see that they have begun offering them...)


I thought I remembered some going from 54k to 90k and from like 18k to 45k, too. But my memory is not that good from months ago.

Anyways, I had 54k but didn't attempt to get it raised. I was planning to but life happens and now it's time to leave the LA area and go back home to the 'ol PNW.

SORRY. was not paying attention to the thread at all. just answering the question.

YES. YOU SHOULD DEPOSIT AT ANOTHER SCHOOL IF YOU ARE WAITLISTED / WAITING ON LOYOLA.
it would be silly not to.
