I wouldn't assume the worst, I've had lots of things disappear and reappear on all of my application status pages throughout this cycle. Hopefully it means you'll hear a decision soon!

On another note, how long have people waited for their scholly/financial info after receiving acceptance letters? The deposit deadline is approaching quickly...

I got the scholarship email the day after the acceptance email.

Good to know. Is this typical of their scholarship offers? I am very interested in attending, so I won't abandon all hope just yet. I have other prospects with scholarship offers, but was really hoping Colorado would come through. I don't want to seem presumptuous by calling the admissions office to inquire about it, but there is only a week left until the deposit deadline...

This whole process is frustrating.

Just call. They will be very understanding of your situation.

Anyone else get an email about a Dean's fellowship offer? Guaranteeing a paid summer internship seems like a pretty sweet deal to me. Couldn't find any info on this from current students, is this new?

Heart skipped a beat when I got an e-mail from CU today.

Turned out to be generic "waitlist update."

I was also offered the Dean's fellowship for next summer, but I haven't come across any current or past students who took part in it so I don't have any information aside from what was in the letter.

How is the CU employment data for 2012? I was offered a good deal: 1L tuition free, 2L&3L 11,000K per year. Wonder if it is worth going. The apartment in Boulder is not cheap, does CU offer house to law student? :evil:

I'm planning to live either at Bear Creek or University Village, there isn't specific housing for law students. Family Housing is also an option.

I know one person who lives in the regular dorms. He's weird and I would not possibly recommend this. I know one person who lives in Bear Creek, and as far as I know, he likes it. Bear Creek looks more expensive than finding something else to me, but…

I've lived there most of my undergrad mainly because it has secure parking, it's furnished and all utilities are included in the rent. The Buff Bus is a bonus, and the Law School is near the second stop on campus so it's kind of convenient.

Eh, this is pretty misleading. It only counts jobs that are full-time JD required. Not everyone wants that, especially not at CU. Only 1/3 students wanted private side work when they enrolled here according to Princeton Review-- the culture is atypical for law school. I think about 70% or 75% of the outcomes look pretty good when you consider all the factors. Check out the schools website for a list of 2012 employers.

I understand its TLS, so I apologize for not being doom and gloom.

I mean I figured most people talking about employment are talking about legal employment, not employment in other professions.

If the original poster wants more specifics, can look here: http://employmentsummary.abaquestionnaire.org/

66% of the class is working in JD-required jobs, but the 15% difference is because some of those are short-term jobs or part-time jobs (underemployment on the LST site). Another 17% are working in JD preferred jobs (once again including part time and short-term), and another 5% are employed outside the legal field.

Ok, so I definitely did have the balls to withdraw weeks ago. I was set on it and then ultimately decided against it because the weather has been so nice and I just love where I live.

They've also been incredibly responsive to my other offers. I AM SO TORN I WANT TO CRY.

Are you saying that UC did not offer you more than 16K for the first year (reapply for the 2L and 3L year) with an LSAT of 168?

Also, slight annoyance in Boulder, but CU is the proper initialism for Colorado. Just an FYI.

You were that " I want to live in Maryland " person, right? You do realize that Maryland has a weird name for a state. Just say it over and over again.

People change their minds a lot. If I were you, I'd go to where I'd be happy and where I could afford. Human decision making is no science though, so don't regret whatever you choose!
