I'm pretty sure it's yours to keep. I believe they used to give the option to lease or buy, but now everyone just has to buy it.

By then it'd be ridiculously obsolete and probably of little value. Anyway, I think our tuition money had paid for it and pays for those of our fellow classmates.

Edit: Ah, thanks for the clarification TJ. Btw, I actually share your birthday (the historical figure at least).

There's a $1400 fee every 1L will pay first semester to cover it.

I just finally withdrew from the other school I deposited at, so I'm officially going to UMN in the fall. I'm excited.

Anyone looking for a roommate next year? My plans just fell through so looking for a female or male roommate. I'm leaning towards Uptown, but I'm flexible!

I was just taken off waitlist and am wondering should I withdraw from the school I've submitted my deposit...

Umm, are you going to MN instead? If so, then yes, you should withdraw.

I'm not sure yet. It's a toss up between Tulane and MN at this point.

Really, I'm flexible to anywhere. (However, I'd eventually like to live in Houston, Dallas, or Atlanta.)

Wow. Good job man.

Minnesota has better placement overall, but if you really want to work in the South and biglaw is not your main concern, Tulane could be okay. Don't count on biglaw from Tulane, though.

I dunno...I'd still probably choose Minnesota if I were you.

I'm a huge fan of MN but if you want the south go to school in the south.

For example, UGA would've been a great value for me but I don't have a strong desire to live or practice in the south so i'm sticking to the midwest...

I just don't want to mess up chances at bigger law firms by choosing Tulane over Minnesota.

I received a phone call on May 27 saying there may be openings for seats and if I was still interested. I received my admittance packet via email yesterday (6/1).

Congratulations on getting off the waitlist! Do you mind posting or PM'ing your gpa/last/date of application? These waitlists are driving me insane

Thanks! And sure. GPA: 3.93 (Summary) or 3.94 (Cumulative)/ LSAT: 154 / App Date: Feb. 1, 2010

I had gotten an email from Minnesota back at the end of November about applying, but an issue with my transcripts kept me from completing my application.

Well, as long as you added yourself to the Minnesota Facebook group, I consider that good enough. But I'll join you anyway.

I can't decide what the comparative scarcity of UMN's TLS presence combined with a larger facebook group is a sign of. Enthusiasm for privacy loss?

Not that there aren't UMN people around these parts, but it doesn't seem to win polls versus comparable midwest schools too often -- people are either scared of the cold or lured by promises that Illinois/Notre Dame and Chicago are BFFs.

No argument here.
