Re: Waitlists and Loans

Hello gurus, I have a question about applying for loans while being on the waitlist. Let's say I were on a waitlist, but went ahead and accepted a seat at another school, got a financial aid offer, and took out loans to cover the difference. But then in July, "waitlist school" offers me a seat. I t...

Re: Berkeley Reconsideration Advice Needed!!

I would show Northwestern's offer and ask them to match. I wouldn't worry about what the 509 says especially because this year Dean Chem said that they are offering a million more in scholarship money than the year before . Dietcoke, can you please provide a source for this? I have scoured the inte...

Re: UC Irvine Law C/O 2021

Anyone have any luck having their scholarship increased?

Btw, despite UCI's awesome jump to the 21 slot, I can say first hand that UCLA firmly doesn't see them as a peer school; I got a 6 hour rejection turnaround from UCLA on a reconsideration request using Irvine's offer.

Recieved my scholarship info today. I also withdrew today... there was a missing diget from their offer and it wasn't a typo, lol. Cheers to those that got a tenable offer.

Re: How much more would you pay for BL placement

Vanderbilt or WashU cannot be relied upon for BL, particularly if the economy changes :shock: Geaux Cornell! unless NW matches +/- 10K. That's what I worry about, and what I'm incorporating into my calculus about where to go. It seems rather probable that there will be another economic down turn in...

don't retake in june bc you feel like you have to. retake bc you feel ready. i think you need to wait for the september test date; a june test does nothing for you.

Option 3: Withdraw your apps now, retake in June (and Sept. if needed), and reapply in October to maximize your options. You should not attend law school with a 155 LSAT, ESPECIALLY if your PT range was nearly 10 points higher.

If I can discern the type of food crumbs that were contained on my rejection letter and within that letter's envelope from an unnamed T14 law school, could such investigative work warrant a second consideration for admissions? (true story!)

going back, c/o 2019 has 24 waves too and looks like c/o 2018 had at least 20, but probably more. unless they’re doing larger waves, i think there are still at least 4-5 JS1 waves to go

Can anyone explain Vanderbilt's exceptionally long process? I get a 'thorough' review process but upwards of 4 to 8 months (on avg), and some cases even longer? What is the rationale behind this kind of timeline?
