I have my flight booked! I just need to get my airbnb. Still not sure if I am going to rent a car or just take Lyfts around. Definitely take advantage of the travel stipend if you're coming from outside of Phoenix.

Did everyone receive an email for acceptance or see it on the Status Checker first? I applied earlier this month and am eagerly awaiting a decision!

Congrats on your respective acceptances!

I was also accepted yesterday - I spoke with their admissions rep at the DC LSAC Forum in July and thought why not apply?

Now that I'm in and drilling deeper into their employment stats, etc. I'm noticing that it's a real feeder into the Arizona market. Obviously regional schools are a great choice if you're dead set on the area, but is this not a great choice for someone looking to end up in a different market? The offer they made me was indeed generous so I don't want to discount the school, but I want to learn more about it from people besides admissions reps.

Again, congrats all!



Hi all,

I'm a current 3L at ASU. Congrats to those who've been accepted! For those of you wondering about out-of-state job placement, the short of it is that ASU is a great place to go if you want to work in Phoenix, but it does not preclude you from getting a job elsewhere. Especially as the school has gradually risen in the rankings, it seems to be turning an eye to out-of-state jobs more and more. I know of a few fellow 3Ls who are heading to L.A. & San Diego post-grad, one who is heading to Portland, and another who was getting interviews in Boston (and I think may have accepted a job there...). There is definitely an opportunity to go elsewhere, particularly on the West Coast and Rocky Mountain regions. That said, a good number of people who come here wanting to go elsewhere also end up deciding to stay, due to job offers/low cost of living/climate/etc....

Feel free to DM me with any questions. Ill do my best to respond to them all.

I got a phone call, then an email, and finally a packet in the mail. Based on my own experience and from what others have posted, ASU seems to have a pretty good response time.

In via phone call from the Dean! He said I will receive scholarship information with my official acceptance email. Good luck to everyone!

Thanks for your comprehensive response! I’ll probably take you up on the DM offer when I have some more pointed questions.

Did anyone else’s status checker date change before they got a decision? Mine went in review on 11-8, but the date changed today to 11-20. Any ideas why?

I don't know how any of these schools use the in review dates, but my status didn't change until after I got the call that I was in.

Accepted as well. Was in AZ this summer for a wedding and had time to go take a look at the facilities - they are gorgeous. Unfortunately, the 120 degree weather while I was there did not impress me :shock:

So I went and toured the school about a week ago. Talked to the Dean of Admissions, Financial Aid, the Law School, and Career Services. I didn't realize there were so many deans at one school! Every single one of them was outstanding and seemed completely committed to helping achieve whatever my goals are. The issue for me is I want to work in Southern California, so I'm weighing whether or not going to a school in AZ with that end state is a mistake. They seem to think plugging me into the SoCal job market will be easy.

Still waiting to hear back from the CA schools I applied to, but I was thoroughly impressed with the staff at ASU!
