I'm happy this was one of my 3 deposits.


are one of your options UC Davis too?, I just realised that class of 2013 for Davis was really good, and big law percentage got a bump compared to last year.

I don't know about anyone else, but I've been checking my Application Statis at least 10 times per day... The struggle!

Why don't you use the prepaid envelope included in your admissions packet?

Yes. I just deposited today. They threw me a lot of $$$. The MLK scholarship would have made them my serious #1 (as of now), but sadly, I was only an alternate (I'm not even sure if they ding people for that).

Do you remember how many times your complete date changed before you got an answer?
Thanks and Have a good one!

so what was the consensus regarding the Application Status Check and the waitlist? Decision made and 0.00 means waitlist?

Just submitted the first seat deposit. Based on my options, it was the most pragmatic approach.

Deposited today. Anyone think there's a shot at ND raising or negotiating after the deposit deadline?

Based on what I've heard from admissions, they intentionally give out more $$ then they have, knowing some will decline to attend. So all these people putting $$ back in the pot might actually not being putting $$ back in the pot. It might not have even been there in the first place.

Pardon the ignorance, but why was it expected that federal clerkships would decrease?

Will the two SCOTUS clerkships help improve other Fereral clerkships for next year?

I'm just saying that I knew that it would go down because I knew who got federal clerkships in my class.

No, the SCOTUS clerkships are outliers, not indicative of any trend. They were exceptional students, both ranked in the top three people in their class.

they were obviously exceptional students, but I would think having two Scotus clerkships in one year would help students in the following year trying to obtain federal clerkships because a judge might look more favorably on the nd name during the next application cycle

District and circuit judges don't follow that stuff. They have their own idiosyncratic procedures to determine who they want, and I can almost guarantee that it has nothing to do with the previous year's SCOTUS hiring numbers. I'd like to think I know something about this since I'm a current district court clerk.

I just realized my post might have came off wrong, but apparently you didn't take it that way so that's good. I was just trying to make the point that judges usually have no idea who SCOTUS Justices have hired as clerks unless they have some sort of connection to the Justice or the student.

Submitted my deposit in the mail via their prepaid envelope today. The latest newsletter said that any envelope post marked on or before 4/15 would be good to go, so I hope that remains true.
