Imagine leaving law school without 100K in debt?

I got an "application acknowledgment" email 1/11 and then hadn't heard from them until I got my letter.

i'm really beginning to get frustrated/worried because i think i'm literally the only one from the november submit period who still is without a decision being that there have now been a handful of decisions rendered for people who have just submitted in january.

Complete since early November. Not a word. I understand it takes some time to make a decision, and some schools wait until March regardless of when you applied if you aren't an auto-admit (e.g. W&M) but St. John's has already rejected and wait listed people, and those people applied later than me. WTF?

I'm with you NYVA. It's particularly disconcerting to see people having decisions rendered sometimes less than one month after applying when some of us have been left in the dark a a result of St. John's nonexistent status checker for 3 months and counting.

Can anyone comment on what Scholarships are available for PTs? I noticed someone said they got a full scholly but no numbers (I need to know whether I'm in the range). Thanks!

I got an email today from St. John's [u]Information Sessions - Thursday, Feb. 25[u].

I applied early/mid Jan. Did anyone else get this? Is this for admitted students or to anyone applied?

Let me know if you got the same and whether or not you've received a decision either way.

Thanks

Hello.

This is an open question to everyone. Has anyone who was rejected by SJU invited to the info. session tomorrow?

I applied and I am still waiting for a decision but all I have received today was the invite for tomorrow's session.

Just curious. Also, congrats to all of you who have been accepted!

Does anyone know if they give extra money for living expenses? Has anyone ever gotten a stipend?

I was accepted PT and I got $25k/year renewable for as long as I'm there. Have to stay in the top half of the class to keep the money. The scholly info came with my acceptance letter.

Well, I was planning on going to the info session but it was canceled due to snow - so I'll be attending on their makeup date of March 9. My app is pending a decision.
