you wont hear anything until they get seat deposts in
hold tight, scooter--they'll get to you
lots of peopel have been complete for a lot longer
they're not real good about saying where you are in the process. they jsut say yes or no to your app.

If Rutgers' legal environment fosters the critical multitasking skill of getting loaded and providing coherent responses on internet forums, I'm sending in my deposit right now.

Just good to see you cutting loose! After all the advice and what seems like a very tough first year it's good to know that Rutgers students can relax.

The MSP has few special scholarships but MSP students get preferential treatment for many of RU-N's scholarships.

1. ABLS Wanda Green Memorial Scholarship. This annual scholarship was established by the Association of Black Law Students (ABLS) to provide financial assistance to students enrolled at the law school. It will be awarded to full-time students with demonstrated financial need who have overcome extraordinary circumstances, including, but not limited to, the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and to Hurricane Katrina, which hit the Gulf Coast on August 29, 2005. If no such student applies, the scholarship will be awarded to a student participating in the Minority Student Program.

2. The McDonald Law Group Equality Scholarship. Established by the McDonald Law Group for a full-time law student based on academic merit and financial need with a preference given to a female student participating in the Minority Student Program.

3. Justice Morris Pashman Scholarship. The Pashman Scholarship supports students, preferably in the Minority Student Program, who demonstrate exceptional talent and financial need. The scholarship, established in 1999 by his family, friends, and colleagues, celebrates the memory of Justice Morris Pashman (’35), who served on the New Jersey Supreme Court for 10 years. It provides full tuition and fees for the recipient's law school career. Recipients are known as Pashman Scholars. They serve as reminders of the high standards of scholarship, dedication, and professionalism that Morris Pashman brought to his 28-year career in the judiciary. A selection committee of law school senior staff and Pashman relatives and former clerks advise the dean on the selection of Pashman Scholars.

4. Marie Slocum Scholarship. Established in honor of the late wife of Professor Alfred A. Slocum and awarded to a first-year student participating in the Minority Student Program. Based upon academic achievement, financial need, and involvement with public interest/community concerns.

5. Special Minority Students Scholarship Fund. Established in 1977 for students in the Minority Student Program who demonstrate financial need.

6. Judge Herbert H. Tate Sr. Scholarship. Established in 1989 by friends of Judge Tate to honor his achievements and memory as a distinguished graduate of the Class of 1935. He was the first African-American diplomat in Asia and the first African American to serve as assistant minority leader in the New Jersey Assembly. The award is provided to a student in the Minority Student Program based on outstanding achievement and financial need.

7. Union Scholarship Fund. Established by the Union Foundation in 1995 to support students from Union County, New Jersey, who are participating in the Minority Student Program. Recipients will be known as Union Scholars.


8. Whitman Family Scholarship. This scholarship was established in 2008 to provide support for students attending the School of Law–Newark. Awards will be given to full-time students based on academic potential and financial need. Preference will be given to students participating in the Minority Student Program.

There have been a few people recently who have posted on this thread with the same exact situation. My advice is to think of it like this: By April 15 people will be committing to schools in the tri-state area and Rutgers will have a better idea of what is going on with this huge influx of applicants. Or, that enough of the pool has already committed by April 1 and they are now just figuring out their numbers and how many people they may accept out of those who they have not responded to yet. On the other hand, the refund deadline for deposits is July 1st so that is more of a symbolic commitment date, but that would be terrible if you had to wait until then. I hope you hear soon (at least before May 1) though and that its good news for you. Keep us posted.

I had that same problem. What I did was that I emptied out my computer's cache and cookies. Then I followed the directions on the webpage and selected "new students" and well, the problem has been all fixed. I finally have a Rutgers email address!

LOL @ me and my inebriated foolishness. :oops:

Well... it doesn't look like I said anything too stupid.

For the poster that asked about having Mondays to get wasted--you will!
The only thing we have on Monday is LRW, and we turned in our final LRW assignment of the year yesterday. Normally turning in an LRW assignment is a huge accomplishment and cause for celebration, but yesterday was extraordinarily amazing. You have no idea the hours of sleep people have lost and the relentless pursuit to write 1 decent paragraph. But, I think you guys should know that despite spending a good majority of my Monday completely hammered--I did get up this morning, and I made it to class on time, and was completely prepared.
The moral if the story--Balance!

If you guys were Rutgers students (from any campus) then you may already have a NetID in the system.
Otherwise you may just need to call the computer helpline and see if they can help you out.
Or you could be creating an ID that is already in use by someone else.

Just wondering, does anyone know if MSP requires us to go to EVERY single one of those weekly group sessions during the course of the first year? That seems like a bit of a waste of time IMO.

Anyone else here in MSP?



I heard the attendance is taken into account when it comes to 'selecting' the MSP students who get 'placed' in the summer internship. Not everyone gets an internship-it's based on your grades, attendance to class, those study sessions and your interview with the firm. (number of interview slots they have as well)

I am not aware of any scholarships attached to this program-but it certainly is a lot more required work. I mean it all seems to have great intentions--I just don't want to be 'stuck' with a crappy study group and then have to study with them all the time to make sure I have the requirements for that internship program you know?

It's hard to let go of the prospect of other schools after this process and commit to one. I sense that you are experiencing what is amounting to a coping process. It's Okay, my Brooklyn withdrawal has been sealed on my desk for over a week now. That's after the form was filled and out by itself for a week before that. I've accepted what I am doing, yet I still need to do it, despite my mind being 99.8% made up. .2 to go! BTW it went up to 99.8 from 99.6 when I got my NetID today.

Speaking of which, is this an e-mail or just for housing. If its e-mail that SWEEET, they even suggested on the first one to use the same name as undergrad. What's more is that my same password works too. Very convenient.

I believe that the MSP's Summer orientation is useful. I mean we're gonna learn how to do case briefing and outlining and so forth so it's basically a heads up on law school before the 1L students come in.

Oh well. Great to know that there's some MSP people on TLS!

Quite difficult to negotiate your scholarship at RU. Although, see how it goes with a formal persuasive e-mail instead of a phone call if you don't mind putting it down in writing.
