Tell us what's important to you
Please let me know what they say!
Hopefully they meant to send out As with the email lol. I was just about to send an email but i'll wait to hear from you.
I emailed them, they called me and said it was a mistake
What was a mistake? The email, the link to admitted section, or all of it lol
The link to the admitted section lol
they also said "lets look at your app while youre on the phone. you should probably take the lsat again in april for a chance to get in" lol
Do you have to do anything extra to be considered for the hybrid option?
For instance, dayton is two separate applications for the part-time in person and part-time hybrid
No i think their part time program is just now hybridg
hybrid*
the email kind of seemed like if you want to do Zoom for up to 6 classes, you can. If not, you can attend fully in person
My LSAT sucks, i'm aware. I just think it's weird, i talked to admissions in January and February and no one said it's in your best interest to retake the LSAT until now. But also, if they won't accept my LSAT, why still have me UR for 14 weeks?
10:20
Just popping in to check on you folks... I kinda got invested in your apps lol. I deposited elsewhere but I'm rooting for you all! Any of you heard anything?
I have not. I get the impression that its going to be a while for PT.
Nope! i think we won't hear anything until after April LSAT scores release
15:43
yuck sorry
15:43
that puts things down to the wire
15 weeks UR :)

@LudicrousEgg: What did you think? I feel like I like Pitt more I am unsure of what to do.
23:42
I went to a Pitt tour day as well and I would just say that Pitt felt way more professional.
23:44
But I've talked to some law graduates (from both Pitt and Duquesne) and they both said go wherever is giving you the best financial aid.
23:47
And like what's been discussed in here before: if you are planning to work in Pittsburgh there's really no difference, but if you are thinking of relocating to a bigger city then you should probably go to Pitt.

@LudicrousEgg: Thank you for the insight as an out of state student I am going to go with Pitt. Best of luck at Duquesne.

Did anyone get accepted off of the waitlist yet?
No, but I'm on WL for PT. You?
I'm on WL for PT too.
