edit: big congrats to those that got in though. and even mini-congrats to those on hold that still have a chance.


i take it back. someone said they had received notification via status checker and no email, so i checked my status checker.

on hold via status checker. Boy, do I need to come up with a strategy.

i was thinking the same but I realized the TLS users here are probably not representative of the entire applicant pool

Yeah of course not. but because of the small class size, 7 admits here represents 17% to 35% of the AJD class if the class size is 40 or 20 respectively.

Oh, and for those accepted to the AJD I have a question.

Are you 100% going to enter the program? If not, what does it depend on?

For me, I guess it depends on where else I get in. I really dont want to live in Chicago again, but it is hard to turn down a 2-year program like the AJD

Come on, Chicago is not that bad. It didn't get nearly the same amount of snow as the East Coast this year. I'm going. Awesome school, awesome program.

Congratulations to everyone who has been accepted. I still have this threat - http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=103409 - open if you have any questions.

Several people have asked me about holds. I asked a few people in the program, but no one knew of anyone held last year, unfortunately.

Thanks Flow, but I was more interested in whether the acceptances on this thread had advanced degrees because I know with last year's class a majority of the people did.

being held for this program doesn't really seem to make sense to me :(
I mean you want to compare held people to the rest of the applicant pool... but all of the applications are in. so couldn't they do that already?

just venting.

np. i couldn't tell if you meant "historically" or "currently" so I just gave you all the known data available. Only the one person above has posted to say if they have any kind of advanced degree, none of the other admits have said one way or the other.

Yeah, I'm a little perplexed as to why they would do so.

True. But after living in Los Angeles, I can't handle the cold anymore :wink:
