Where did u hear this from, chucks?

+1 did the dean say this?

Not from the Dean but a 1L told me they are usually looking for a class size of 180 around there. Their year though so many people wanted to attend so they ended up with 230.

Hmmmm. Maybe I'll corner the dean at a regional event coming up and DEMAND ANSWERS.
That's good to hear though and I hope it's true. The class size of 229 last year is way too much.

i'd be ecstatic if this class hit only 180. hell, even 190-195 would be awesome for c/o 2020.

Just wanted to see if I should still be thinking about this as a possible scholarship boost or not :/ thanks


I received a follow up to the same email telling me I was chosen for the program. I don't know if they are still selecting more or there was just one wave but the letter didn't mention further scholarship other than summer funding. But every school I am considering offers summer funding for PI and i don't know if this is in addition to that or in place of.

Yeah c/o 2018 was 190
Then c/o 2019 shot up over 20% smh

Hoping they more accurately gauged their yield this year.

the separate admitted students tour days I think are basically just tours and law day is filled with programs (probably like mock classes and breakout sessions like panels and what not)

My fears have been realized. No option to request the travel stipend now that the Law Day sign-up is an option...
