Anyone know how difficult it can be to transfer into full time?
You definitely can. Most people at the top of the 3L class end up being people who transferred from PT to FT. A lot of SMU students who started out FT with a full class load are bitter about that fact. I do not know how difficult it is to transfer, though.

I'm thinking the call list is random. There is no way to guess. A stack split into three stacks will seem random...

I'm glad it didn't go alpha order. I was sweating bullets.

First acceptance of the cycle and it feels so good.

I am really going to get to go to law school! I can't tell you how happy this makes me.

Best of luck everyone, I'll send all my good juju in your direction.

Edit: I was 1/26

Looks like (from LSN) people are getting accepted with numbers similar, albeit higher, than mine. If that's the case, it seems odd they'd flat out reject me instead of waitlisting me. But who knows. I feel like I should have been called by now!

I don't think complete last week gets you into the ED batch, at least not from what I remember. Relax you are in the RD batch, unless you were an auto-admit, they are probably not going to call you this week.

Yep, decision rendered yesterday. 3.13/158, pretty good softs (been out of school a few years).
