Congrats everyone!! I went here for undergrad and absolutely loved it. Don't let the myriad bars and incredibly rowdy undergrads detract you from your studying too much, though it is a nice place to have a good time when you need a break :)

I was wondering if any other admitted students, who have completed the scholarship information form for the Law School, also received an email instructing them to fill out a FAFSA form? I am a joint degree applicant, so I am not sure if this email is for the Law School or graduate school, and I thought I'd check in here. Thanks!

I realize that this doesn't magically develop a giant legal market in the state of Wisconsin, but it is still pretty cool.


I clicked on the link and a bunch of pop-ups started trying to come up gaaaah!

LSAT: 173, GPA: 3.8

I was only able to submit apps in the last few weeks so this is the first decision I have received. Wisconsin ranks very high on my list so I am definitely strongly considering it depending on how everything shakes out.

Has anyone been WL or rejected yet?

I wonder when that's going to start... :|

Looking to stay in area and keep debt to a minimum. I am also interested in practicing an area of law that does not rely as heavily on attending a T14 (immigration). We'll see how it all shakes out.

My status went complete on 12/27 and I received their response on 01/06.

Well, something screwy happened with my email and I never got their status checker. That being said, I'm not exactly sure when I went into review...

Went from "Processing" to "In Review" on 1/11. Any idea on how long being IR can last?

Just a heads up for those of you who are probably not aware: Mike Hall has moved to another position within the law school and Rebecca Scheller has been named interim asst. dean of admissions. He will still help out with the current cycle as needed.

Your the first person to notice haha. I saw them in concert for the first time in September. I now regret passing the two previous opportunities. They are amazing live.

A little before I got my acceptance e-mail, they sent me an e-mail about all their scholarships with an application form.

Went from IR 1/11/11 to IR 1/12/11. Does that signify any actual progress or just a harmless date update?
