Anyone else get wait listed with the invite to do the JD Next program? And are you going to enroll?
@FeebleFineSkater: i did too, i signed up for it but when the time comes, idk if i will do it
idk why they sent it. does it give us any benefits with the school?
I signed up for the JD Next program as well. It should help us all and only hope it would also help with their waitlist decision. Has anyone been accepted anywhere else?
yes i was accepted at thurgood marshall
yeah i signed up for it in case it helps towards our decision
Same here @ElatedEnchanting, I was accepted at St. Mary's & Thurgood Marshall, but I really want to stay in Houston. I love Houston and I want to go to South Texas Law School.
@LaJefa: im still waiting to hear back from st marys. i went there undergrad and my application was complete 3 months ago and i havent received a decision yet
Did anyone attend the information session conducted today at noon?
I did and basically there may only be 5 to 10 waitlist seats available. We will not know until the last week of May if anyone else is selected off the waitlist. Good luck to all. Hope this helps.
oh wow thats insane
Wow. Is that only for full time or part time as well?
It's only for full-time seats.
Did anyone on here apply to the part time online program?
Has anyone been been accepted elsewhere? Or has anyone been taken off the waitlist? I kinda gave up on STCL and have committed to St. Mary's. Good luck to everyone. God Bless!
I was just waitlisted
Anyone off the waitlist yet?
Apparently STCL is inquiring if you're still interested. Apparently they still have openings. Anyone have anything to say about this??
Yeah I just got the email today too. Do you think it’s real? Will they continue to take students or is it just to keep you on file?
Did anyone apply to Thurgood Marshall?
For those wondering if STCL is really considering those who "report" that they are still interested as per the last email they sent, I believe it is legit. I answered "yes" and on the 23rd I got in.
Congrats! UnarmedManyDemogorgon hell yeah!!! I have committed to St.Mary's. Good luck to everyone!
Very nice and congrats!! Good luck!
