@ManifestingNoRs: thank you! I am checking the mail one final time at lunch and will then call and request
It took a good 2-3 weeks for my packet to come.
one of my recommenders got a thank you email last night. Should i be hearing back soon?
Same. I’m thinking by the end of the week?

congrats everyone who got the A today!
Actually can't believe I didn't get a R with laughing emojis
Waitlist is pretty good with my stats
Has anyone approached Richmond for scholarship negotiation?
Got an A off the waitlist today for anyone who was waitlisted!
is there a day we have to get an answer by? commit dates are coming pretty soon
Where is the scholarship info in the packet? Maybe I was going through too fast but I saw nothing.. I am above both medians
it was at the very front for me. normal white piece of paper
When is 1st seat deposit due at Richmond Law?
@AgreeableNonstopScorpion: April 15th!
Does anyone have any times about how to like negotiate financial aid?? Like how could I ask for more money from Richmond in a nice way.
Anybody who went to ASD yesterday have any thoughts?
I went - it was nice but didn't blow me away, the student ambassadors def seemed to be genuine when they talked about liking the school and having good opportunities & the faculty they involved seemed to be very personable - lmk if you have any specific Qs
also went^ similar vibes
That's good to know. Mainly curious about how involved the law school community is together. Like do they see each other outside of classes, community feel type of thing or is it more every man for himself?
@SHark313: they made it seem like it was incredibly collaborative. You get assigned a small section and that's your study group for the year. Even walking through the lib, there was hardly any people alone. Everyone was studying in a group
didn't seem incredibly tight knit but students seemed pretty involved in student orgs and I def didn't get any impression of an adversarial or super competitive environment
seat deposit deadline was on Saturday, do we think we will see movement this week?
I withdrew my position on the waitlist. Good luck y'all!
Please let more in off wl 🫡
I am going to be applying with a 3.8 and a 160..chance me
@GroovyUtopianOstrich: apply early for the best shot. I got waitlisted last year after applying in January with a 3.94 and 161.
