I was just about to post this. I know there is good data for us to look at when making decisions, but this makes me feel really uneasy.


This could be anecdotal. I think it's in all of our best interests to do some of our own research with an open mind to see what it's really like you know?


If you go to ATL and check the rankings. Every alumni/student review of any >T14 mentions a poor CSO. Just the way it is.


Yeah, I wouldn't be too worried about this. Latest job data shows that nearly 70% of UGA grads get jobs as lawyers within 9 months. A decent chunk of those are pretty good jobs, too. If they have solid placement in spite of a crappy CSO, the CSO quality itself wouldn't be a major factor in my mind.

Yea, I usually take it to imply that CSO's were pampered with jobs back in the day, and never really did much. And well, they still don't do much.

Current 2L. I wouldn't call the CSO helpful, but the sentence about OCI wasn't correct. There were definitely 20+ firms at 2L OCI, and a few interviewed 40 people.

It's a tough world out there, though. If you have the gpa for it, retaking for a chance at UVA or whatever is something to think about. Can't beat the price at UGA, and our employment is a sight better than schools like GSU, but you have to do well to get a market-paying job - median ain't gonna cut it.

Does UGA send out an application acknowledgement email? Only school where I haven't received any confirmation of my application.

You can just check to see whether they received it through the status checker.

Just wanted to check with anyone subscribed to this thread: any movement over the past few days? I'm assuming the snow has slowed the adcomm down some.

Any expectations for when we could hear something? Cheers.

This is potentially an idiotic question, but....

For those of you (I'm assuming most) who submitted your UGA app through LSAC, where did you put a resume? There's no section for one under the 'Attachments' section of the app, so I'm assuming it's not necessary or even optional. However, it feels odd to not submit a resume. My gut instinct is to attach mine under the "Additional Information" tab. My application is otherwise done, so I'll be submitting in a few days. Just wanted to see what other applicants did before I submit. Thanks!

Yeah, I was a little thrown of by that too when I submitted mine. I included it under the additional information section.

Not yet, but I plan to. I'm waiting to see if I get any other good offers I can use as leverage. Let me know if you try how it goes!


I will! I'm trying to decide if I should wait to hear from Emory/vandy and send them one email, or try now and negotiate with my other offer.



That is EXACTLY what I am waiting on.


Me too

FYI: I sent an email with my one offer and they said they will get back to me closer to the deposit deadline since they are still giving out initial scholarships. So I don't think it matters if you email them now or a little later

Checking in - I submitted Tuesday, and usually within 24 hours of submitting, every school has gotten back to me saying they've received my application. Georgia still hasn't. Is this normal?

Totally. It took almost a week for a few schools to acknowledge my existence. I'd give it til the middle of next week before worrying about it if I were you!

That's funny, my wife said if we go I MUST provide her with a bulldog. I asked if that meant I get a badass eagle if I get into BC. She has yet to answer

This and school colors should be the only real considerations when choosing a school. :lol:

Out of curiosity, have any early decision UGA applicants on here received scholarship offers?
