I'm more or less in the same boat...although I'm starting to lean towards public interest and/or becoming a judge...so are you pretty much sold on American or are you just being a tease?


You know I am not sure at all, I have not even seen the majority of schools I have been accepted into, and a lot would depend if I get any scholarship money from anywhere, but if I had to choose right at this moment, with none of the other factors I would most likely choose American (still wishy-washy, I know)

I feel you on that one...honestly, with my stats, i'm thankful that I got into WCL and, like any sane person, should just cash-in with that option. but, i haven't heard from most of my other choices as well (although they should be coming any time now...i'm almost expecting rejections/waitlists). anything else from this stage forward is icing on the cake...DC's the spot to study law, though!

Pretty much the same dates, no decision...I'm thinking about withdrawing since I've already been accepted to a few schools higher on my list than American, but I was at least going to give them a chance to make a decision

I'm on the waitlist and am contemplating sending an additional LOR. But since they limited it to two LORs on the app. and don't explicitly welcome the idea of sending more in their little waitlist blurb, what do you guys think? I plan to send a LOCI anyway, but figured since I have a pretty good rec on file w/ LSAC it couldn't hurt... Thoughts?

Give them a call/send them an email asking if they would accept an additional LOR. Best to get the info straight from the source.

If you had 10 great candidates you would think you would call it a day...


I also applied to the PIPS scholarship and was a bit upset they extended it, knowing my scholarship could've used improvement...

Yeah, screw that Newsletter. As someone on the WL, I stupidly thought good news came early.

Anyway, to those of you who have been WL'ed, I asked about sending in additional LOR (I had already sent in two). They told me that due to the volume of the mail, paperwork, etc., they receive that they would not be accepting another LOR.

Hope this helps and good luck

They send it by priority mail so only a couple of days at most. Assuming it is an acceptance

Thank you so is it basically a consensus that it will either be an acceptance or rejection if a letter is being sent?

Waitlisted. Annoying. I marked Full/Time part time. Just curious does anyone have any insight on (if i were accepted) transferring from the part time to full time class?
