Samford (Cumberland School of Law) c/o 2016

Postby Prayerful1 » Tue Dec 04, 2012 12:10 am

I guess I can get us started! I have been COMPLETE since 10/15 and nothing has changed. Has anybody else received any changes in status checker? I'm below 25% with pretty good softs and an upward trend... so I'm prayerful

Went under review on 12/4. Have yet to hear. Above 75% on LSAT, about at median GPA.

Just learned I got admitted via status checker. Here's what it says:

"Congratulations on your admission to Samford University's Cumberland School of Law! An admissions packet is on its way to your permanent address now. Additional information about financial aid, scholarships, and instructions on how to complete the enrollment process will be emailed to you soon. If the Law Admission Staff can be of any assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact us."

So I'm assuming that they snail mail scholarship information. Went under review 12/4. Anybody else hear today?

Edit: obviously I didn't read that too closely. It says "information about financial aid, scholarships, and instructions on how to complete the enrollment process will be emailed to you soon." My bad.

The admissions packet came in today. It's actually a binder, which was a nice extra touch. It includes the normal information, as well as a letter detailing the scholarship process. You have to interview for the scholarships, but you can do it through GoToMeeting.

I started this thread and I haven't been able to find it again since. Ironically, I found it today and I was waitlisted today! That's better than a denial. I now need to research LOCI.. I don't know when to send it or what to say really!

I would suggest sending it in ASAP. Here are some resources on what to write:

Sigh.. I was waitlisted. Last week my status checker changed to Decision Letter on 1/16 and I thought they'd made a decision, however it was simply the waitlist email that they sent a month prior! :roll: :roll:

I emailed them about it a couple weeks ago and they said that they "will be contacting you sometime in the next couple of weeks with more details about the scheduling and interview process". I haven't heard from them since. Pretty frustrating.

Well, I should probably stop looking at the status checker considering I was told that I would get a call when they offer admission. HOWEVER, I see that my status checker has been updated to TMS Invite. I can't come up with any ideas of what that could mean.. DOES ANYBODY know?? lol... I'm too embarssed to call and ask because I think even the secretary recognizes my name now. lol

Talked to the lady in financial aid today. She says they should be sending out some scholarship info to those who have already interviewed this Wednesday

There are TONS of places down Lakeshore Drive, let alone all over the Mountain Brook area.

I interviewed for a scholarship a couple of days ago, so if anyone wants any thoughts on the interview, how to prepare, etc, just shoot me a PM.
