Everything old is new again.

Well, here we are at the beginning a new admissions cycle. I’m sure that all of you prospective applicants are busy getting your ducks in a row (e.g. preparing for the LSAT, working on your all-important personal statement, etc.). We’re keeping busy as well. Recruiting season starts in a few weeks, so click here to see when representatives from our office will be visiting your school or region.

A couple of changes to the admissions process that you should note:

1. In the past, the part-time program has had a summer start date. Effective immediately, the part-time program will now begin in August.

2. The deadlines for the part-time program have drastically changed. The application deadline for part-time applicants is now May 15th and part-time applications must be complete by June 15th. We will accept June LSAT scores for part-time applicants on a space-available basis.

Calhoun Lofts

Here's a short marketing piece for the Calhoun Lofts, UH graduate and professional student housing that's slated for completion in summer 2009. The lofts will be located across the street from the Law Center, so I expect that you prospective students out there will be particularly interested.

"One Day in Houston"

Here's an awarding-winning mini-film about our fair city of Houston, courtesy of the Greater Houston Convention and Visitors Bureau. While I really like that this piece provides a nice overview of our city, I don't think it quite captures the quirkiness of Houston. In any event, it's definitely worth watching.

Question of the Week - What next?

I've submitted my application. When can I expect a decision?

Early decision applicants will be notified between mid-December and mid-February. Regular decision applicants will be notified by mid-May, although we review applications on a rolling basis, so you may receive a decision earlier than that.

We will confirm receipt of your application via email and provide you with an applicant ID which you may use to check your status online. Be sure to read carefully the instructions on the Application Status Check page and note that your status may remain the same for several weeks.

Finally, we know that the time between submitting your application and receiving a decision be stressful, but we hope that your anxiety is tempered by the knowledge that we thoroughly review each and every application that comes to our office. Since we do not have cut-offs for the GPA or LSAT, every file receives careful consideration in the review process. Once upon a time we, too, were law school applicants so we know from experience that waiting is difficult and we appreciate your patience.

A word to the wise...

This incident happened a few months back, but we were reminded of it because the defendant was sentenced a couple of weeks ago. We’re posting it as a warning that you should never, EVER, do this.

Let's start over, shall we?

After a lengthy vacation, we’re back! We’ll bet you thought we forgot about you or that we didn’t care. No, no, no! We didn’t forget and we do care, so we promise to post more frequently and regularly this year. No, really, we will (plus, we installed a site meter on the blog a couple of months ago, so we know that folks are visiting and we’d hate for you to waste your time by visiting a site that’s not updated).

Now, let’s get down to business:
