Just received a follow up email re: scholarship money! Woop. Comes in a neat little printable PDF as part of their efforts to go green. I can respect that. Again: good luck, y'all!

Idk, I guess technically 11/26 but I submitted on 11/10... they just considered me incomplete because they thought I was still retaking in December.

Looks like I didn't quite make the "flurry." January it is, then.

Admitted 12/20 - haven't received anything via mail, nor any scholarship info via email so I hope that's still coming...

Just submitted mine the other day (Thursday) after I received my December LSAT score for PT.

I'm a splitter within the median of UGPA and a little under the 25% of LSAT but got 10 years of solid Trademark legal work (research and analysis, maintenance and prosecution) and got an MA and an MBA (just a few weeks ago!). Hoping they would make a way for me this coming Fall.

Best of luck to the others. :D

I scored 163 on my LSAT... do I have a chance for the evening (part-time) program? Thanks all.

GPA? Softs? Assuming everything else is in line, a 163 is definitely competitive. PT is traditionally less competitive than full time and you're above its LSAT median. Plus I got in the day division with a scholarship and I didn't do particularly better on my LSAT.

Interesting. Thanks so much Dark Kite for responding. I didn't think I'd do particularly well on the LSAT, so I wanted to hold off til I'd get my score to really contemplate law school and get the applications going. Sounds like I really need to put together a solid application to make up for the LSAT. I'm an int'l student, undergrad GPA 3.9 (Univ Denver), MA Int'l Affairs at Columbia (GPA 3.5), worked with lawyers in a carbon trading private equity firm for the past 6 years. This would be a career change for me. I really want to go to law school... just the prospect of getting in is giving me wings... :)

Your GPA and LSAT and experience sound good to me. I don't have a crystal ball but I'm confident. Definitely make sure your application is tight, regardless of numbers/softs... but ya, I'd say definitely competitive. Best of luck to you!

Thanks! :) Will keep the forum posted on progress. Hopefully I contribute some knowledge to others as well. :)
