I got the envelope today, yay! I am in SoCal. I bet they arrive around here first, so hold out hope, people from elsewhere!

I am definitely applying for this...if I could get significant money there, USC would be very high on my list. I am super excited. :mrgreen:

I'm in the Bay Area, and I haven't gotten one. In all modesty, I'm slightly surprised; perhaps they are mailing them out in cycles.

Just wondering, why did you even bother applying outside HYS?

Look forward to it :)

If I had your stats, I would probably apply to top14 just to feed my ego of the large scholarships I was receiving at schools 95% of law students wish they could attend at ticket :lol:

Managamy was dumb and didn't believe that Law School admissions was only a numbers game. :wink:

If I had his stats I would have applied to T6.. actually T5 since I'd never want to go to Chicago

I liked being able to see the inside of the law school and the campus even though I know it inside and out having been here for undergrad, and I wish more schools had DVDs like it.

Where do you live protokurios? Are you in SoCal?


Yeah, in So Cal.

Got the Rothman Scholars packet in the mail today. Haven't decided if I'll apply or not, but leaning against it because I have no interest in BigLaw and would rather go to Berkeley than USC anyway.

EDIT: I live in the Bay Area.

Got it today. Don't waste your money on a USC application fee, crackberry, unless you're really worried about those tuition hikes or scared of V6. :wink:

Well I already applied (had a fee waiver so it only cost $12) but what I meant was I hadn't decided whether or not I will apply for the Rothman Scholars program. Don't think I will. I can't see myself going to USC, to be honest.

I also got mine today (on the east coast)...congrats to everyone that received the packet. Just to double check, does getting it mean that you have a very good chance of getting in (almost certain) or just a decent chance?

Got the Rothman invitation today- totally surprised!! the picture of the USC campus makes me seriously consider SoCal.. f the cold haha

So, to everyone who got it, does this mean they really like our app?

Also, I had a very very public interest-y PS and DS and i don't have auto-admit #, so it really seems they wanna encourage public interest people? Otherwise I can't explain the selection of some invited students here

Unless your numbers are fudged on LSN, you do look like an auto-admit for USC.

And judging from last year's thread, it seems like just about everyone who got this invitation was accepted shortly thereafter. So this should be good news for us. :D

AWESOME!!! that makes me happy! (hope i'm not judging prematurely, but really doesn't seem like it)

Still, I'm surprised they sent me an invitation- I don't think it's like an auto # thing? At least in the package it says "A few selected students are invited to apply", so by a few how many can they mean? I hope it's more like 60-few and not 960-few LOL

It kind of looks like anyone above their medians got it, so it's probably a lot. I'm guessing they need to cast as wide a net as possible, since many people with high #'s will simply opt for a higher ranked school.
