Yes @dogmomscholar
@Schnoodle: when do you think a wave will come out? it looks like no decisions really at least for lsd users so far.
the message at the top of my portal disappeared
i finally changed from "complete and ready for review" to "in review" anyone else?
17:41
@dogmomscholar: Looks like December is the first wave so any day now
17:41
I have nothing on my portal that's new... Just the same message - complete & in review
17:42
It looks like a wave last year was today (12/14) so I assume any day now unless they're delayed
i got an email from them a few days ago when my appilcation went to under review. It said they were still going through the spring applicant and the fall ones were a bit delayed.
Got a phone call for my acceptance
@NumberlessSpikyNibbler: when did u applu

@FrequentLearnedGoose: What did yours change to compared to what I am assuming is UR1, "in review"

@TangibleSatisfyingGnome: ^^^

Ohh do you have the status checker?
@TangibleSatisfyingGnome: yes!
Just got my A call!
Hey! I applied to Charleston and I'm out of state, does anyone have thoughts about the school
I'm in the 75th percentile
Yeah I would avoid it at all costs
It's a regional school and has an awful reputation in the region. Have been working in and around attorneys for 5 years and Charleston SOL is an instant deny to just about any job worth its salt. They've lost their accreditation several times
They keep attempting new measures to fix their reputation. They are long past fixing it IMO

Why did you apply then, if all you heard was negatives?
Their employment rate went up
I got in yesterday
just curious since I'm not from the state
