Anyone applying to the online JD program?
@BoredSweetCyclops: I did
I know it’s a new program with the school. Curious to see what they offer for those they end up admitting. When did you apply?
I applied in late March/Early April. Numbers/scholarships reported on graph seem fairly legit. The online program is def drawing applicants with numbers higher than their last 509.
Heard from them about 2 weeks later- call from the Dean
