Are scholarships awarded in the offer letters or is it something different?
@AnxiousBug: seperate - mine came about 30 minutes later than the acceptance ltr
I've been "File is before admissions committee" since 12/1 - anyone else been waiting this long?
I have been at the same thing since 11/14, i'm so sick of waiting
I was accepted yesterday, with no offer in the acceptance. My status on lawhub is still, "file is in final review". Does that mean there is potential for a scholarship? 😮‍💨
How soon after applying did you hear back?
Did anyone here apply to the 2-year Spring-starting J.D. program at Albany? I haven't heard a decision yet and I'm a tad nervous as I would have to move basically in a month if I hear a yes.
