If I recall your stats correctly, it's an acceptance batch. Definitely not a rejection batch, that's for sure. Good luck Veritas!

I'm pretty sure my stats are "borderline." USC would be a HUGE win for me :D


Well at the very worst, you're a WL.

What are peoples' opinions about USC's law facilities? Have you guys taken the virtual tour? Yikes. When will one of USC's alums donate a proper building??

I visited there around a year ago and took some law classes. The facilities were fine, beautiful law library and one thing, students were very nice. They were willing to answer your questions. I went there as prospective student. I don't know whether I am still one or not. USC is a reach for me, not huge, but definitely enough to expect a ding, though I love it.

I can't find the virtual tour but I worked in the library for two years so I've been everywhere in the law school. The library is nice, it was renovated about 5 years ago, so the common study areas are nice. The desks throughout the library are a little old, although the chairs are comfy! :) In comparison, some of the classrooms are a little old, but it gets the job done. The faculty offices are nice, and the basement has a nice little cafe. Overall, a pretty small building, without too many common gathering areas, but you can study outside in the sun for probably 3/4s of the school year near the fountain out front. The outside is pretty dang ugly though, almost as ugly as the undergrad business school building right in front of it. :lol:

From what I've seen/heard, rothman invites do get substantial scholarship offers...a lot of the LSNs that said they got the rothman invite reportedly received between 75000-105000. However, I'm not sure if this is because individuals that received the invite generally have high numbers or because you took the time out to show interest in the program. I would think it a safe bet, however, that if you are a finalist you can expect at least a decent offer tho...

This is what I've heard too. I'm really struggling with writing the thing though -- I don't want to repeat the things I talked about in my PS, but I'm just not that exciting. And I certainly haven't invented anything.

Today is my 1 month anniversary from going "In Review." I'm still optimistic that I will go to "decision rendered" soon (I'd be happy for even WL at this point so I can stop checking).

Hey, anyone here email them for a waiver and get one? I am waiting to hear back. I emailed 4 schools this weekend asking for waivers, BU said yes, Michigan said no. Haven't heard from the other two.

that's a close call. i would say accepted if you are URM.

But if not, i would still say most likely accepted. :o Everyone who went into review so far has been acceptances, and no rejection batches have gone out. Good luck!
