Yes, they gave me a really good one and subsidized my hotel cost completely.

St. John's moved up 25 spots. If they can keep that momentum going they'll be in the top 10 by the time we graduate.

Forgive me if this has been discussed previously-

Does anyone know if Michigan offers any sort of travel stipend for visits not during ASW? Or has anyone had success negotiating one?

IIRC, stipends are need-based. Michigan does subsidize hotel costs, though. When you register for ASW, you have the option of booking a hotel through them for $20/night.

Sorry, I think my question may read weirdly -- I'm not able to visit during ASW, and am wondering if anyone has had any help with financing an 'off-schedule' visit.

Ah, sorry! Not your fault, just reading comprehension fail.

Hello from a 3L!

I am subletting my 1 bedroom apartment this summer. It's a 5-7 minute walk to the law school and to downtown bars/restaurants. It has A/C and comes with a parking spot. I rented to a summer starter last summer, and it worked out great! You can see photos here: http://annarbor.craigslist.org/sub/4926467509.html

If anyone wants to check it out over ASW, let me know. I can also answer questions in general. I'll be frank.

Long shot: Anybody going through Champaign-Urbana to the 2nd ASW? Will split gas costs for full trip, even if you're coming from farther away.

Do you mind sharing more info? And possibly stats? I'm just trying to adjust my expectations in anticipation of getting my scholarship info (hopefully soonish). I haven't seen much announced here except for the named scholarships.

Totally cool if you don't feel comfortable sharing! :)

For more perspective: ~25th GPA, 75th<LSAT, 60K as well.
