They are being very generous. I would not be surprised if 40% of the class has a full scholarship.

Yeah their generosity had me thinking they might snag 162. Maybe next year.


Wow, I was thinking the same...now I kinda wonder if the reason they were so generous was that their medians were going to drop otherwise?

Haha, true! And, also why I think the law bldg isn't the prettiest...it seems like they're giving all their money to the students, so that's cool...but, I also really think that within the next 2-3 yrs their numbers are going to improve, esp w the new dean, etc.

I hope so. At least they are renovating the classrooms for next year. I'm looking forward to that.

Confirmed...still no medians...https://www.law.asu.edu/degree-programs/jd


No medians--but a friend at an admissions fair was given the following info from ASU rep:

Entering class
225 (apparently they have 8 "advanced standing" JDs)
GPA: 3.38 (+.01)/??/3.80 (+0.02)
LSAT: 158 (+1)/??/163 (0)

This was "as of" orientation they told him.[/quote]

Wow. Resident tuition has skyrocketed over the past five years. So much for the good value proposition.

The two Penn State Schools:

University Park

LSAT: 152-158-159
GPA: 3.15-3.58-3.73
Enrollment: 138 (can't compare to last year because the school split, and this is the first separately recruited class)

https://pennstatelaw.psu.edu/admissions ... ss-profile

Carlisle

LSAT: 158-159-161
GPA: 3.15-3.46-3.74
Enrollment: 64

https://dickinsonlaw.psu.edu/admissions ... year-class

Looks like Carlisle is coming out ahead in the divorce.

64 is a really small class!


True, but if you can maintain those numbers (remember the type of school we're talking about, here) and have fewer graduates to place, isn't that a better model?

Minnesota's placement numbers are mediocre, it has no national reputation or network, it costs an arm and a leg, and ghostly portraits of dead men festoon their classrooms.

UMN has less need for a national reputation than schools like UWash and Vandy that are in states with no legal market. UMN grads can easily get biglaw jobs in Minneapolis starting at 120k, whereas those other schools have to send people to the coasts, which should make them less attractive because you are competing with grads from Penn, Harvard, Berkeley, etc whereas UMN dominates its own niche biglaw market.

Any speculation as to when 509's will be published? Isn't it supposed to be sometime in November?

This is not supported by any data. Only like 10 to 15% of each graduating class gets Biglaw jobs out of Minnesota. Which would be fine, if it didn't cost so damn much. It's the epitome of mediocrity.
