Some interesting facts about St. Mary's University School of Law

Since its founding in 1927, St. Mary’s University School of Law has taught more than theory of law. We equip future lawyers with the skills to succeed and the values to lead in a more just world.

St. Mary’s Law is located in culturally vibrant San Antonio, Texas, the seventh-largest US city. We are the only Catholic law school in Texas, and our mission is to graduate leaders in the law—advocates with the moral compass to make a difference and a commitment to service. For us, justice counts. This legacy of public service is continued by the 500 university alumni who have served in elected or judicial positions.

The law school is vigilant of the need to preserve a tradition of excellence in legal education with the development of new programs and methodologies for the changing world, and offers a part-time online program, in addition to the traditional full-time day program. St. Mary’s Law has also launched the cutting-edge Law Success Program, which includes an innovative legal skills curriculum.

The Law Success Program equips students with the skills necessary to achieve success on law school exams and the bar exam and to launch legal careers.

Before the first year, law students go through a robust orientation program that assesses each student’s capacity for technical reading, comprehension, and critical thinking and introduces the skills and behaviors necessary for the study of law.

During their first year, students are assigned a first-year coach and they engage classmates in a cohort approach to learning. The curriculum, personalized instruction, and assessment continue during second-and third-year education.

Maybe it's a waitlist. Or do they notify you if they waitlist you?
@StripedPicayuneRobin: they notify you. when i called and asked, they said that it just means that the committee hasnt decided yet
it's their equivalent of "in review"
how long has your status been that
[] Sagittarius29
anyone else status checker straight up not loading??
[] Sagittarius29
also i asked about the "no decision" status a while ago and they said it "means what is says" so I asked for clarification like if I was missing something and they said not this just means we are still in the process of reviewing
@Sagittarius29: I had to email and ask for a new status checker link because the one on their website is broken
just email the office of admissions and they will send you a working link
@ElatedEnchantingPug: It's been like that for a week now
@StripedPicayuneRobin: mine has been like that for a month...
