Subject: Update on the Class of 2011

Dear Law School Community,

I hope you are enjoying your summer. Many of you have asked about our incoming class, and I am happy to provide you with an update.

To begin with, we have received over 1,300 applications, the second highest application volume in the history of the law school. Applications came in from all states and several countries like Ukraine, Ghana, South Korea, China, and Canada.

With regard to the men and women who will compose our Class of 2011, we now project a final class size of between 115 and 130 students. Among notable characteristics of the class are the following: incoming students are from more than 30 states and 5countries; the number of colleges and universities they come from is over 100, and include University of Dallas, Villanova University, and Gonzaga University; nearly half of the class is female and 15% of the incoming students has identified themselves as an ethnic minority.

On behalf of the staff of the Admissions Office I would like to thank our student ambassadors who have volunteered many hours of their time to meet, call, and email prospective students. I also would like to thank the staff and faculty of the Law School who have taken an active role in our Voir Dire programs and in communicating via email and phone with these incoming students. Additionally, our gratitude goes to the several alumni who have taken the time to offer their help and support by way of writing letters and sending emails to our incoming students.

I hope you found this update informative. While we keep working with our incoming students, our Office is now looking ahead to the recruitment of the 2009 entering class. Please let me know if you would like to participate in our efforts.

Enjoy the rest of your summer!
