UW-Madison 2011

Postby theavrock » Tue Sep 28, 2010 6:29 pm

Just hit submit on my UW application today, so I thought I should help out by starting a thread. Who else out there is applying to Madison?

I know right. Sounds much more ominous than in review or whatever else the status checkers say.

From what I remember Madison has something like a 60% in state quota so there is some preference for in state.

Oh okay. Someone had told me they prefer out of state which I thought was strange.

hmm... I don't know then. Possibly they just haven't updated the status checker. Who knows?

When I met with Dean Hall, he told me that they wouldn't even start looking at files until the admissions staff was done traveling. He said decisions in mid-November at the earliest, and possibly December.

Hi there - I've already done with my app for Wisconsin but now I'm considering retaking in Dec. But my current lsat score is at the 75th percentile. Is it possible that I ask the school to consider me now before getting the December score? I really worry that the wait will stop me from getting an early reply/possible $$

Yes, you can do that. Some applications have a question asking whether you want them to wait for another LSAT score before being considered. I forget whether Wisconsin has one, but if not, then I think they'll just consider you as soon as they get the app. There have been threads on this question before in the Admissions thread, so you can check there.

Also, I am under review at Wisconsin. Yayyy! My first Under Review.
