I have yet to receive the scholarship application forms by mail. Presumably you fill those out, and then wait for $$ offers.

haha, hopefully not
i checked law school numbers for the past few years for anybody that did their priority track early (like september/october) and no priority track applicant has ever been rejected this early interestingly enough

My status is "file under review." Although I didn't apply priority track, I'm hoping for an early response. On their FAQ it says some that apply early receive one.

I didn't apply JD/LLM and I still haven't gotten any email yet. If the decision was made, what's the hold up?

so I saw my inbox light up with an email, I freaked out, and the subject header was "$5 free at Borders. You can thank us later."

I will not be thanking you, Borders. In fact, eff you. Hold all my emails until I get into law school.

maybe they're waiting to send them out in batches. i mean, why send them one at a time when they can put us all into a mail merge at the end of the week or something?
