Take it easy. Just because one school moves quickly on your app does not mean another will. If you want to complain, check out the Cornell thread :lol: .

Oh, and I'm UR at UMN since 12/23

How do you know if they will offer any money? Is it unlikely with a 167, 3.0?

sorry but i would be shocked if they gave you any money, even if you were a resident - and residents get major bonus points with scholly money at UMN. you are from CA, so my answer is no way.

Went complete 10/15 and ready for review 10/16.

I was in review 11/19, 11/29, 12/03, 12/16 and now I have been moved again to 01/14!

MN is a reach for me (3.79 & 157) but why have they not rejected me yet?

I am a resident, so perhaps that helps. I am also URM.

But really, should I think that I will get accepted since no rejection yet? How much can we read into these things, if at all?

I am really just wanting to know? MN, show me some love! I'm putting up with -21 degree wind chill today and I still want to stay!

Geez those are a lot of dates! My 2 cents - I think that shows that they are actually considering you. Based on your numbers alone, I wouldn't be surprised if you just got dinged automatically. All those review dates, to me, shows that they see something that they like despite your bad LSAT - at least enough to give you multiple reads. URM good, resident good, GPA good, it could still definitely go either way though. Good luck!

I think that it means that you are in the URM pile of applicants and your decision could go either way. Maybe the school has set aside a certain amount of scholarship money for URMs & wants to examine all URM candidates with below median numbers before making decisions & offering merit money. This is, however, just a guess.

I've applied to 9 schools and heard from 0. I thought UMN might at least be a quick decision, but I guess not...

Ohhhhh my status also changed! From 12/17 to 1/21. I think it changed couple times before that as well.

Does anyone know how overseas-applicant friendly is UMN? I am not sure how popular the school is among international students but it's definitely one of my top choices (and reaches), I don't want them to think I'm just throwing applications to all the schools.

I pretty much got rejected by all the reaches and UMN is one of the few left...really hope to hear from them soon!

FWIW I'm an international applicant as well and I was accepted last year, numbers below median.

01/21 IR update. Anyone have a reading on whether that's a ding / WL group or not?

No idea. The numbers for this group seem to be all over the place.

Hey, this may be a bit off topic, but does anyone know much about how the UMN students use their supplied laptops?

I can't find it right now but I remember reading about how Minnesota supplies Lenovo laptops to all of their students to ensure that everyone has the right software/hardware/configuration for presentations and such.

Anyway, I just bought a new laptop and was wondering if the students use their supplied computers as their primary/only computer or if they use it only for presentations and what not.

Any info on student preference is helpful. Thanks.
