I recall that the timeline describes today as when you find out whether or not you’re a finalist. Meaning everyone should get an email


Finalist == being selected for the program? Or just being shortlisted?


Finalist meaning the ~100 people who get invited to interview, etc. Only 50 will be ultimately selected for the scholarship in this first year

Same here. At least we can hope that SLS decisions will start coming out soon now that the KH stuff is over with!

Same for me as well. Such a moonshot! Ah well. And yes, hopefully SLS decisions will start to trickle in!

No KH. Well no doubt, our SLS apps should be in the later stages of review regardless. I wouldn't be surprised if some people get news next week or early in January.

Does anyone know how SLS notifies applicants of decisions? Will it be on status checker/only snail mail/phone call?

I'm not even upset TBH because I was able to use some of the material from my K-H essays as a basis for my other law essays. :)

Call for admission


Any thoughts on when they might begin admitting? I know you had posted 12/15 earlier, but not sure if today is the day... Think next week might be a possibility?

I hope so, but last year December decisions were a surprise. The year before decisions didnt go out until January


Right, lack of consistency makes it difficult to speculate :(

Hey Bud, I saw that you posted this on a few threads. I appreciate the insight and I know your intentions are pure in trying to help us assess our chances, but some people on these forums do not need the added stress. I would suggest you add some additional info (softs, time of app, no mention of GPA, impact on T14, etc) to this article to keep those numbers in perspective.

Happy Holidays, buddy. Thank you again for the link.

Retweet.



I just wanted to share this interesting piece of news to as many people as possible. If you are triggered by something as innocuous as this, then maaybeee law isn't the right career for you. I also don't see how my adding additional info would help--i didn't write the article!

But anyways I only have love for all of yall so lets all stop being offended and im sorry if I added to your stress. :cry:

There is a difference between being "triggered" and annoyed about having the same article shoved in your face in 5 different threads. We can't do anything about the odds this year, so how is it helpful?



in hindsight i would have posted it in the general tls 2021 page, but i didnt know that existed until like now. i just wanted to share the info with as many people as possible. again im sorry about "shoving" the article in your face multiple times

about your last question, i think TLS isn't for you if you think we shouldn't post about things out of our control. This entire forum is literally the definition of being neurotic and commiserating collectively about forces we cannot control.
