Fingers crossed! I know it's a reach for me, given my stats, but I'm excited nonetheless. Does anyone here know off the top of their head when the application goes online?

Good luck to everyone!

Can't wait to apply. Is anyone in-state? I'm coming from the Boston area, interested in what Bloomington is like (weather, things to do, political leanings, etc)

I'm in-state, but 4 hours north. I've been to Bloomington; its gorgeous, but can't comment on what day-to-day life in B-town is. Maybe someone will weigh-in, or you could ask at the Class of 2013 thread.

My Co-worker is from there. She says it's an average college town, with a fantastic jazz and music scene. She says it's wonderful if you love music.

Just submitted my app this morning. I called to find out if I could also submit a resume since my credentials didn't fit on the space provided (they said yes) and how soon they will be reviewing apps and (they said 8-10 weeks). Good luck everyone! :mrgreen:

I'll be applying once I get my LSAT scores from the October exam.

For those wondering about IUB, I did my undergrad there and it is BEAUTIFUL! It is definitely a college town since everything revolves around IU there. Great food, great diversity, and it has a "home" feeling to it. :) Loved IU!

I applied a week ago and haven't gotten any sort of email with a status checker or anything. All of my other schools acknowledged receipt of my app via an email within 1-2 days. Has anyone else applied to IU-B yet?

I went to IUB for undergrad. I absolutely love Bloomington and always will. If anyone has specific questions about the town, campus, etc. I'd be happy to answer them.

Hot in the summer, cold in the winter. It's a beautiful town, especially in the fall. The law school is literally right off the strip where all the restaurants, shops, bars, etc. are. It's a liberal town through and through, by far the most liberal town you can find in Indiana.

The music scene is wonderful. Even though it's a small town many big name bands pass through when they're on tour. Very culturally diverse, particularly when it comes to food. I've lived in few large cities, and honestly I haven't seen much that compares to Bloomington.

Very vegan/vegetarian friendly, with a big emphasis on local/organic foods. I love Bloomington! I went there for undergrad, so naturally I'm applying. Shooting for Northwestern but I wouldn't be disappointed to end up in Bloomington next fall.

This is great info from an insider! Thanks!

How far of a commute is Indy to B-town?

+1. Shooting for a T10, but I definitely wouldn't be disappointed either!

+1 to this. My dad is an IU-B law grad, so it's in my blood.

My mom lives in Indy and it's only a 40 minute drive down to Bloomington and she lives on the very southern tip of city limits, so to get there from downtown or vice versa you're looking at 55-60 minutes.

I finally got an email acknowledging my app. Apparently there is no status checker. On one hand, I'm grateful (one less thing to obsessively check) but on the other I'm irritated that I can't check! Ha!

Thanks!!!

I checked the past IU-B threads (viewtopic.php?f=7&t=94358) and it looks like there hasn't been a status checker in past years. I think that's the only school I've applied to that doesn't utilize one.

Are you worried about your #'s being too low or too high (yield protect)? Ask for a fee waiver. They waive them automatically if you've received an LSAC fee waiver.
