It was just over 2 months for me between submitting and being accepted. While it's no fun to wait, 5 weeks doesn't strike me as out of the ordinary.

I was really surprised at how fast OSU moved for me. About 1 week from complete to decision.

Did you write a "Why OSU"?


No I didn't, I ended up sending the same PS + DS set to all my schools.

I am RD and my numbers are not extremely high so I was suprised to get an answer so quick. I can only guess that they liked the fact that I am from New Mexico and wanted that state represented or something. I can't imagine there are too many qualified applicants coming out of here, but who knows?


Woo hoo! Me too. I am originally from the Midwest, but moved out here to ABQ for work about a year and a half ago.

As far as I can tell, the website is just OSU's version of an application status checker.


Just got this email this morning, does everyone get it? Seems a little redundant that in the email it says to check the status of your app go to the LSAC status checker that they already sent out, but then they give you access to this website as well? Just hoping maybe it was a positive sign or something significant :)

They give that to all applicants for undergrad and graduate programs at Ohio State. Current Ohio State students already have their OSU ID, so they only can rely on the LSAC status checker.

I'm not sure about how many they gave out last year, but 2 years ago they awarded 6 Moritz Scholarships. I'm pretty sure they stay close to that number every year. Here are the links to a few of the winners from two years ago:

In addition to the standard application, Moritz Scholarship candidates are required to submit and essay about what kind of leader they would be after obtaining their JD as well as an additional LOR. That's what they told us at the open house anyway. Hope this helps!

They also have 75 leadership scholarships (full and partial tuition): --LinkRemoved--
That page says
For consideration, applicants are encouraged to submit an essay that speaks of their leadership abilities.

I wrote a typical PS-length essay (in addition to my PS) for consideration for the leadership scholarship. Then, after getting my acceptance I saw this page: --LinkRemoved--
where it states:
While there is no application required for consideration of this scholarship, applicants to the law school may submit a brief essay, of no more than 250 words, that describes his/her leadership capabilities or interests.

I haven't yet asked whether or not those are the same scholarship...just crossing my fingers they won't hold it against me that my essay was over twice the length they requested. :oops:

I never saw that 250 words thing about the leadership scholarship either. I'm pretty sure my leadership essay was more than that. So, you're not alone LWoods!

Rejected ED today via e-mail. Thanks to the mulch/stone logic game. Haha. I wish everyone best of luck at Moritz. Barring a major miracle, looks like I'll be down the road at UC.

No word yet. Complete on 9/17. I've been admitted into one of my top choices already so I just want a decision, good or bad, so I can start narrowing down my list/visiting schools.

Are you all ED applicants who are receiving notifications?
