I guess I always assumed that even though they say OOS and IS students are fairly similar in profile that it was much more difficult to get in OOS. I wouldn't have expected someone below both medians to get in OOS is all, and certainly not in one of the first batches of acceptances.

Probably UNC. I think they are more or less peer schools. UNC has more name recognition, but only due to sports. Honestly which ever one is cheaper and/or in the area you would rather spend three years is the best bet.

I am 1/2 hispanic (I've gotten mixed responses on whether or not thats a boost haha), but I'll take it.

In terms of resume - I was student body president at my university (private/top tier), as well as other high ranking leadership positions and had good recs from very strong figures/professors/and my university's president.

I assume thats the extra boost.

to answer your other question, the law school isnt that removed from the rest of campus...one could even argue its less removed than the bschool because its in mid-campus instead of south. You shouldnt have too much of a problem being connected to the rest of the school at all, especially in social terms.

I think this is great. Looking at straight numbers leaves SO much out of who each applicant is and what they are capable of. Congrats on the admit, and those are strong softs!

I'd say W&L is more prestigious; maybe that's just the undergrad. I'm pretty sure W&L undergrad is much more difficult to get into. Not really sure about the LS.

Historically there was one big wave in mid-February and another in mid-March. http://unc.lawschoolnumbers.com/applicants/0809/

It's coming.

UNC is known to be a leader in education as an entire institution. Quite frankly, a large percent of the population has never even heard of W&L. Thus, UNC has more laymen's prestige. In addition, UNC scores very highly in the USNWR's reputational score. Therefore, it's more prestigious in law circles as well. I'd be thrilled to end up at W&L, but I'm just sayin'...

160/3.8 from Carolina undergrad

Also have a paralegal degree and work experience managing a law firm.

In state.

Any thoughts?


In state, high GPA, above average softs, and decent LSAT... I would say you have a pretty decent shot! UNC loves high GPA's so I am sure that will help. Good luck, UNC is a top pick for me as well.

I'm 95% sure that you're in. Your GPA will pull you through.

When did you submit?

I too would be thrilled to end up at either UNC or W&L. I just said that W&L “undergrad” is more prestigious – and I’m sticking with that. I also went to the US News Rankings.

Ranking:
UNC #28 under National Universities
W & L #14 under Liberal Arts Colleges

Selectivity:
UNC – 34%
W&L – 16.8%

SAT – 25th & 75th Percentiles:
UNC - 1210-1390
W&L - 1320-1480

I was speaking about the UG. Right now, I believe both law schools are ranked the same, but several years ago, I know W&L was ranked higher. I’m really not sure if size makes one more prestigious than the other.

Do you think it would help if I threw myself on the steps of the law school and started begging and crying?

Yup, in-staters and um... those of us who reside in Illinois. Yeah, that would be fine.
