@adorablewarning: my update changed
it says ready for decision
i heard this school is very religious
Ugh mine is still the same! Good luck! Please let me know what happens!
My status just changed today to "pending decision". At the top it says: "This is to notify you that your application has been reviewed by all assigned reviewers and is ready for a decision."
same
@adorablewarning: it's saying that for quiet some time
Ugh my status still hasn't changed. It's driving me nuts.
@adorablewarning: pending decision all the time
Has anyone received an update? My status just changed to "Review in Progress" - "This is to notify you that your file has been sent to the Admissions Committee for review."
I'm assuming my app went back to the admissions committe to review again?
Hey guys anyone accepted yet?
I applied late with a low LSAT

same!
Accepted with a 35k scholarship conditional on be above the median gpa
@VictoriousInquisitiveCockroach: Youre not going to like it but wait a year and retake the LSAT. Tier 4 Schools simply are not worth the full price, youre going to have six figures of debt with a 5 figure job
My lsat diagnostic was a 150, i did not study for that long and got a 160 on the lsat, its very easy to improve by 5-10 points withing 4 months
Also i scored 3 points higher than a guy who got a full ride here. His major was sports management what a joke. a 2.5 stem degree is worth a 4.0 bullshit degree.

@FlutteringSqueamishPuffin: I got accepted with the same conditional scholarship....any insight on how often people lose that conditional $? What is the median, and how hard is it to hold onto? I worry it is designed to lose....

I have heard that conditional scholarships are risky..but if it's attainable, I would like to consider it! Anyone have thoughts or experience here with the conditional $?
I would be cautioned to go to any school that has a condition. Look up their 509 report and other documents showing how many people lose scholarships. I am not saying law schools do this on purpose but it is very convienient when people just barely get below the GPA and are now paying full price to the school
@VictoriousInquisitiveCockroach: I got in!
how long did it take you to get a response
I applied in November and heard back some time around the second week of july
January* wow im tired
omg you scared me for a sec there but that's good
