Me too :(

We have identical numbers as well, which I guess explains both waitlists.


Hang in there. There is usually a lot of movement on the waitlist, even up to the day of orientation.

anyone going to the admitted students reception on the 13th? I have no family coming with me, so I'll be lonely if anyone wants to hang out.

If Southwestern can process my application in under 2 weeks, I'll go with you!! :mrgreen:


I'd probably go, too, assuming I am admitted in time. I'm just waiting.

The 2010 Tulane Law School Moot Court Mardi Gras Invitational Sports Law Competition

Last week, Tulane Law School hosted the 2010 Tulane Law School Moot Court Mardi Gras Invitational Sports Law Competition. This year’s problem was based on the Star Caps case that has been discussed at great length on this site.

I want to take this opportunity to thank the students at Tulane Law School—in particular Nathan Prihoda, Marcus Edwards, Daniel Meyer, Julia Farinas, Andrew Miragliotta, Ashlee Cassman—for all of their hard work in putting this event together. I also want to thank our “celebrity” guest judges for joining me on the panel to judge the finals of the competition. The guest judges were: Andrew Brandt, the founder of the National Football Post and a former vice president for the Green Bay Packers (among many other things), Richard House, General Counsel of the New Orleans Hornets. Judge John Grout, Jr., and Joe Ettinger, Tulane Law class of 1956. And, of course, thanks to the students from the 40 different law schools from around the country for competing in this year’s event. All of the judges were impressed with the quality of the teams from the first round through the finals. I hope you enjoyed the competition and were able to find some time to take advantage of all that New Orleans has to offer (well, maybe not all of it) during Mardi Gras.

Finally, congratulations to the winners of this year’s competition. As always, the winning brief will be published in The Sports Lawyers Journal. Here are the results:

The Winner of the 2010 Competition was: Loyola University New Orleans School of Law.

The Runner-Up: Southwestern University School of Law.

The best brief was submitted by: UC Hastings College of the Law.

So I got the Wildman/Schumacher Scholarship. :) I'm very happy, but still debating over Loyola. They only gave me 51k so I'd be in massive debt upon graduation. Still waiting on USC, Pepperdine, UC Davis, and other schools I'm NOT gonna get into.

Status checker changed to "Final decision has been mailed" 2/26. Is this standard for all decisions, or was there a different message for those who have been accepted? Also, how long did it take to receive the letter?

I was waitlisted and it showed up on the status checker. I am not sure of how those who are accepted are notified though.

For those accepted, how were you notified? Just snail mail?



Big envelope. Snail mail.

Hello everyone,

For those waitlisted, is it stated that you are in status checker? Or you found out through snail mail?

Many thanks !

Got highest score in my section (20 students) on draft appellate brief - 20% of grade :). Now I have to finish the brief for 80% of my grade, and prepare oral arguments. First round is March 14-15.

This is probably a stupid question, but on the application you are asked to list your preferences for which program you wish to enter, ranking them from first to last. Does this mean if you are denied for the full time program, they consider you for the part time program automatically?

*Edit*

Just spoke with the admissions office, and they confirmed that this is the case.
