I don't really have a no. 1 tbh.

If I had to pick one, and not regret ever going there. I'd say Fordham or George Washington. (both PT)

Congrats! Congrats. To those accepted to the summer program. This means if ppl from GA already got a response then FL is next on the map. I have my fingers crossed. Good luck to those waiting as I am myself. :lol:

I got accepted today too!!! I'm in Kansas.

Looks like the letters are reaching all parts of the country so everyone else's should be arriving soon. How exciting. Now they need to tell us where we will be placed!

Keep me posted if you guys find out first.

i got in as well. i'm just not sure attending is the best choice for me. am i the only one who is stressed about coming up with $2000 before the end of feb? :shock: also, if i were to go...the institute is 6 weeks and my parents cannot and do not support me and i would have no money/income over the summer (b/c i have none saved...still a student and i've been paying my way thru school). yea, i really wanna go but part of me feels i should work to save money b4 law school and enjoy my last free summer. :(

What's up guys! As you can see this is my first post on the forum but been visiting TLS as a guest for quite a while now. I'm curious, has anyone from NY gotten a response yet? The anxiety is killing me lol. And congrats to everyone thats been accepted...

You might qualify for that discounted $200 fee.

i mean how they make decisions on who to accept. i'm guessing most of their decision is on the personal statement you submit to them, rather than anything to do with your gpa or lsat right? what about urm status, is that important?

Probably your PS and LORs. URM status is important if you can't show some kind of disadvantage. There are some LSAT and GPA cutoffs but they are like 140 and 2.5.

I am convinced that that the USPS has some conspiracy going on. theres no reason why all of us from NY haven't gotten our letters yet!

I didn't think LORs are required.


They pull them from LSAC, so no special effort.
