I'm the same as you, minnesconsin. I wonder how many of "our kind" there will be?

I know of a couple, and there's a few more on the facebook group, but I don't think too many... 10-15? Kind of nice to know the way around, definitely will be easy to move at least.

With 250 kids in the class, 60% from Wisconsin and UW-Madison the #1 represented undergrad ... I'm going to guess 10-25% of that class went to Madison for undergrad. Most will be from the '06-'09 classes, but I figure there are numerous non-trads in that group too.

I'm guessing that the 60% from the state of Wisconsin is a bit misleading--when I talked to admissions, they made it sound like a good number of students either deferred or took a year off to get in-state tuition.

I dunno. I think for sure it's not 60% from UW-System schools (Oshkosh, Milwaukee, etc), though. Tons of UW kids who went to a Northwestern, Cornell, or random LAC (Grinnell) end up at Madison for law school.

Went up to Madison today to look at some places; snapped some quick pictures of the Law School and the UW Campus:

Wow. Despite fairly low expectations this year, undergrad football tickets sold out in just over two and a half hours.

Looks like I'll be showing up to work a bit early on July 6th.

Joining the class of 2012. Very excited!

If you're getting hockey tickets, private message me. We should talk. It's first-come, first-serve this year for seating and I'd love to have some people to go with.

Just chiming in to say I'm going to Madison next year and that I turned down 20k instate at Minnesota for it because Wisconsin is just that awesome.

How's everyone doing on the waitlist? My roommate is still freaking out about it (161/3.2/URM), and I just wanted to know if anybody had heard back recently.

Pretty cool article in today's New York Times about Madison and things to do there...

Wow, check this LSN profile out: http://lawschoolnumbers.com/argent

Notice what was said: Wisconsin has 300 for a class of 240! This will dwindle down during the summer a bit, but this will have major impacts on our class especially in course selection. Also means the Class of 2013 will be insanely competitive, I'd think.

yeah, it kinda is a lousy way to start the morning, even with no intention of attending. Kinda sucks my first waitlist movement was a rejection. Oh well, I am still very happy with Fordham.

As much as I liked Wisc., I wouldn't have gone there over Maryland. I like the mid-Atlantic too much.

Sorry to those who got the WL ding today -- but it seems like everyone had other plans, so it was kind of an afterthought anyway, so that's good.

Anyone want to cut-and-paste the nuts and bolts of the e-mail? I'm especially intrigued to see if this overenrollment blurb on LSN is true. Probably not surprising considering the slashed budgets for public institutions.

Here is the email:

I write to inform you that due to the unusually high number of students who accepted our initial offers of admission this year, it is clear that we will not be able to offer you a seat in the incoming Fall 2009 class, and therefore, your application for admission must be denied.

This year, we received close to 3000 applications for the Fall 2009, and are aiming to seat an entering class of 240 students. As I have shared with some of you already, we currently have over 300 people who have accepted our offer of admission, and have told us they intend to enroll. And while we are certainly gratified at the response we have received, it means that we are in the unenviable position of denying so many wonderful people. A large number of candidates who applied demonstrated strong qualifications and the ability to engage in the study of law, and it is especially unpleasant for us to turn away a myriad of qualified applicants.



However, if you matriculate this fall at an alternative law school, remember the offer we extended to you earlier; that of deferred admission as a transfer student in fall 2010. Simply maintain a 3.0 average (or equivalent) or rank in the top half of your class at the end of your first semester at any ABA accredited law school, complete the equivalent of a full-time first-year curriculum in good academic standing prior to enrollment here, complete the Law School transfer application, maintain good character and fitness, and we will accept you as a transfer.

Our transfer application will be available in early 2010. As your law studies evolve, please feel free to contact us or set up a time to meet with us regarding this process.



Whatever decisions you may make going forward; we wish you only the best in your future endeavors.

Sincerely,
Michael A. Hall
Assistant Dean for Admissions and Financial Aid

I'm sure that this was quasi-expected. I'm assuming that schools that don't require an actual seat deposit know that they are going to get over-enrolled. Anybody have any information about the last few years of UW-Madison and what information was presented to WL, rejects throughout the summer?

congrats on fordham though!

I have a feeling that my 162/3.32 wouldnt get me in such an awesome school as UW-Madison come next year due to the competition increases.

Good luck in NYC! have fun with OS :)

I'm still surprised you got dinged with a 164 and a 3.4

Was your personal statement about butchering hobos or something? (congrats on fordham)
