Tell us what's important to you
did yall receive a one time scholarship of 3 year
Yes, my email said a one time scholarship for only the first year and that it is not renewable. I decided to go ahead and withdraw and attend another law school.
@Tweetybird29: Ik I was disappointed it was one time. I am planning on withdrawing tomorrow as well
Anyone else's application say pending verification.
mine said that for a while. i asked what it meant and they just said that it means that the committee hasnt started reviewing it yet
my status changed to in-review when they started, and a week later i received my decision
thank you!
Does anyone else's application still say pending verification? Mine has been like that for 2 months now
Has anyone been waitlisted or gotten off the waitlist?
I just got waitlisted
when did everyone apply
@StripedPicayuneRobin: I'm so sorry to hear that. There is still hope! I applied at the beginning of December and mine still says pending verification! Did your application just jump from pending verification to receiving an email with a decision?
Accepted today 12/25/22
2023* not 22
is this school as "bad" as i hear about bc i'm still sort of considering
like admin wsie*
wise** lol
Some staff are nice and some are cut-throat. Lot of solo attorneys that come out of TSU or at least that’s what the employment summary says. Howard is better for big law but they do closed book exams. Not sure if TSU does tho
Does anyone know how long it takes to hear back after you go under review? I just went under review today!
About a month or a little more. I applied 11/30 and got an A today
I’ve been UR for like 3 weeks. My status checker went blank today but idk what that means
@RaisingArizona: I definately think you will be receiving an update soon!
I got a hold!
@RaisingArizona: how long after your status disappeared did you find out?! My status just went missing! Thanks!
Lol we are good I was accepted!
Me too!!!
Congratulations (:
