For those that were asking about another Admitted Student's Day, there's another one coming up on 3/31 (I wasn't able to go to the one in December, either, but will be attending in March). Hope to see some of you there!

Congrats! Are you going to the Dean's lunch too?

Thanks! Yes, definitely - bringing my wife, too, so she can get an understanding of where I'll have disappeared to for the next three years!

congrats! when did you go under review and when did you apply?
also what are your stats if you wouldn't mind


I applied on January 9. So it took 5 days, Monday to Saturday. It went under review on the 12th or 13th, I think.
My stats: 166 and 3.67

Too real: "disappeared to for the next three years." Have you told her much about the 1L black hole of studying?

We have a few friends who've already been through law school, so she has SOME idea. She went to med school, too, so hopefully she understands better than most.

With that being said, I've heard 1L year is harder than med school... So who knows. It's only a year, right? :)

Hang tight. You got this.

I opted not to. My resume demonstrates strong enough regional/institutional ties that I decided to hold off and submit if I was WL'd.

Just checked my status checker and saw I was placed on hold. Should I send a LOCI or is that only needed for waitlist?

Waitlisted yesterday; 161/3.2 GPA. Anyone know when they start moving people out of the waitlist?

Got my scholarship info yesterday. I get less money every year after my first year. Really disappointed. UC Irvine has higher medians, and they offered me quite a bit more. I do not think I will be attending ASU.

Irvine costs quite a bit more to attend, though, no?

~50K out of state at UC Irvine vs. ~40K out of state at ASU. (And in-state, i.e. after first year, the difference is even more pronounced)

Does it work out that you'll be paying substantially more to go to ASU?

Seriously--you ever look at a cost of living calculator too? Housing is about 30% higher in Orange County than Arizona! Check the numbers...

I know that, I am from So Cal. But if I want to practice immigration law in Southern California, it just makes more sense to go to Irvine. Plus if Irvine is offering me about $20,000 dollars more, that would cover the extra tuition costs and more. And they have on campus housing, so housing wouldn't really be that much more.

Well I am from California. The in-state tuition for California is about $5,000 more than the out-of-state for ASU. The scholarship from UCI is big enough to make up for that. Living costs are higher, but I want to practice in Southern California and UCI has only been accredited for 2 years and is top 30. So if I am looking for a high ranked school, UCI makes sense.

Definitely makes sense if you want to practice in Southern California. I had only assumed otherwise because your other posts had indicated that ASU was your first choice. Good luck to you!

Are you saying that you pay in-state tuition at ASU after your first year?

If I remember correctly you will be considered a resident after your first year - I believe everyone pays in-state tuition for 2L and 3L years.

I could be wrong, so don't take my word for it - but definitely ask the admissions staff.
