does anyone know if they usually have any or much waitlist movement?
just got WL today, hopefully!
I'm attending CWSL! Anyone else?
@CulturedSquirrel: I will likely be attending as it seems unlikely I’m going to get accepted off the WL @ USD with a scholly!
Do they negotiate on the scholarship?
18:03
Same question as above^ and did anyone receive a non-conditional scholly?
Fizz I applied the 9th
Wrong chat sorry
My application is in review rn and all over reddit it says this school is predatory is it correct or is it just bias?
If accepted, how fast did you hear back?
@LegalAwesomeGremlin: 23 days
@CulturedSquirrel: I am also likely attending. I don't think I'll get an A at USD, still waiting though.
I only got a scholarship for 1L, should I try to negotiate for it to be all 3 years or at least some?
I got accepted yesterday
