Yikes. I guess I should reconsider Maine?

Depends on what you want, how much money you get, your personal feelings about Maine Law, etc. I am just upset because I would have thought my home state would have done me a favor or two considering all the setbacks in life I choose to blame on having grown up there. :roll:

Too late for me on that. I withdrew already. I sent an email to the Dean of Admissions, got no response, and withdrew. I wish you all luck there.

I'm going. I think it will be my last one / will give me enough information to make a decision. Question for Maine though. Where do you get off asking for a seat deposit (if there is money involved) before your open house? Order of operations fail.

Well, in my experience, I think the mindset is "where else you going to go in Maine?" Pay me now, decide on me later.

Agreed on the mindset. Not psyched about it.

Just got in last week - got no money though. Applied late and only to Maine. Debating withdrawing and trying for more schools in the fall. Older student, so hate to wait another year. But will be entering law school with 1 month old newborn - so maybe for the best?

Many people didn't get any money to Maine. They are very stingy / don't have much to give. Only you can decide what cycle is good for you. I would suspect waiting is a good idea. Use the time with your new child to study for and re-take the LSAT (assuming you didn't already kill it) -- if you can study with a newborn in the room then you can slay the test. Also use the time to polish your resume and application file and apply to one or two other schools in Maine's peer group (Tier 3 / lower tier 2) and collect competing scholarships to use as leverage next cycle.
