I hope that means we are being considered for scholarships. I am as poor as my avatar (Jack Sparrow not Johnny Depp) but with big dreams.


Why are you so excited about being admitted to the third best school in North Carolina, you should have applied to Duke or UNC.


Ok, one&only your question is definetely in the wrong thread, but I do have an awnser.

"Wake Forest University School of Law provides a solid legal education in a small, personal atmosphere. Indeed, with a student-to-faculty ratio of approximately 10 to 1 and around 500 students in total, classes are amongst the smallest in the nation."

"At Wake Forest the students learn how to think and act like a lawyer. First-year students take most of their courses in small sections of approximately 40 students. Their legal writing classes are smaller, with only about 20 students in each section."

After considering this info, I decided I would get the most out of a school like Wake Forest; and thus I am very exited about the possibility of attending.

Cheers and good luck in UNC, I know it is also a great law school.

:roll: TROLL.

Luis, Wake is a great school - don't feel like you need to dignify this with any sort of answer or justification for wanting to attend.

I didn't mean to hurt any one's feelings, Wake is a great school. That said, I stand by my post. Those with stats over the 75% should take a look at UNC, Duke and many other schools.

It is important to know there is no possibility of transferring between NC schools without a compelling reason, so applicants would be smart to attend the law school where they want to earn their degree.

If such a school is Wake Forest, then congratulations, it is a very fine school.

If you're OOS and have numbers just above Wake's 75% (say a 3.6/166) you will still likely not be an auto-admit for UNC and definitely not at Duke. If you want to practice in NC, have those sorts of numbers, and could somehow sneak into Duke, why pay full tuition when you could get an excellent scholly at a solid school in the region of your choice?

Nobody in this thread said "Hey guys, I want to work in NC and I'm only interested in Wake, I'm not even considering Duke or UNC!!" I'm pretty sure everyone in here either has numbers that make them competitive at Wake and comparable regional schools (like UGA and UNC), or would be pleased to have it as a solid regional option.

Either way, your comment was snarky and completely unsolicited.

Taking a break from TLS for the rest of the day and heading to Winston to do a self tour of the campus/law building with my boyfriend. Also going to check out what downtown Winston has to offer. It is only about 30 minutes away and its a beautiful day here, so this should be fun!

Let us know how it is! I'm hoping to be able to visit there sometime before March.

If you take any pictures, post them please. I've seen pictures of the outside, but can't seem to find any of the inside. I probably won't get over to visit until February or March. I'm really hoping to go to Wake Forest. I applied to UNC too, but WF has so much more that I want than UNC. Although I'm sure I'd be happy at either. The admissions office has been so great too.

Sorry no pics. If I had known I would have brought my camera with. I had already done the official tour during one of the admissions sessions and I liked the building. Basically it is a pretty nice building which is shared with the MBA students. The library is nice and has many group study areas as well as little cubicle things for each student to keep throughout the year (which I though was very cool). There is a lounge with a flatscreen and some comfy furniture and a little kitchen. The classrooms seemed nice and they had several full courtrooms (I think they hold some sort of NC appeals court there on a regular basis). There is also a good on campus dining option right next to the law building. We also did a little driving around the outside of the campus to see what kind of housing options there were. There seemed to be many apartment complexes as well as nice neighborhoods with For Rent signs outside of houses (I have heard rent in Winston is ridiculously cheap too). After that we spent some time walking around downtown Winston and got a bite to eat at a cool Irish pub. We asked the people that worked there about the bar scene and they said that there were a bunch of bars downtown that grad students tended to congregate at.

Anyways, hope this helped!

About a week from them acknowledging receipt of my application. They do give out status checkers.

No problem. I knew I wrote the post after you'd probably left. Thanks for the info about the school. Sounds like a great school and I can't wait to see it in person.

Wake has started rolling out acceptances. Someone posted their acceptance on law school numbers :)

Wake Forest has an amazing campus, better than any campus I visited for undergrad. Brick laid paths everywhere, gorgeous library, elegant chapel, nice quad, etc. My friend that goes there says it's a great place, low cost of living.

With that being said, I don't want any of you to go there because i'm a likely waitlist and really want to go! Joking aside, good luck to everyone.

User NeedGoodLuck posted that he/she received a decision today. Didn't list if it was an accept, reject or whatever. But it was updated 4 hrs ago with a 'decision' date as 12/16. Just sayin'

She is totally right. Someone find this person and make them clear this up!!! Was this a mistake or did their status checker actually change???? Yikes, insanity is setting in.

I sent a WTF message. User is pretty good about detailing decisions and correspondence in their info section, so we'll see. I mean, it should be a clear admit... maybe they're changing status checkers before they mail out letters Friday?
