CONGRATULATIONS!

Although, that would have been an epic post in the Ding Bar...

LOL totally. You've been following my rants about the tundra, I see. :lol:

There it is. Waitlisted via status checker.

Only sad because it's my first decision of the cycle. Poop.

Edit: And also just because it's a little sad.

That's another YP example... has to be:

http://www.law.umn.edu/prospective/profile.html wrote:LSAT Median: 167
25-75 Percentile: 159-168

GPA Median: 3.71
25-75 Percentile: 3.36-3.84



Based on this, you are a perfect candidate.

Yeah, I normally am skeptical when people claime YP, but Minnesota seems to be pretty blatant about it this year.

Waitlist via status checker. 171/3.8.

Assuming that this is some sort of YP and not some glaring mistake on my application, what should my next steps be? Minnesota is near the top of my list. Also, if I somehow get off the waitlist is there any chance for scholarship money or is that basically shot?

This is absolutely nuts... Especially with the last two posts, I feel like something weird is going on, or U of M has zero faith in it's program drawing strong applicants.

Just withdrew. Hopefully, it will help some of the other folks relegated to the WL.

The message seems pretty clear to me. But maybe I'm just bitter.

Someone above suggested a LOCI and had some convincing reasoning that you might actually have a strong bargaining position with good numbers later on to get some scholarship money. I'm still deciding what I'm gonna do, but food for thought for ya.

Dude?

Why would you ever apply outside of T10. T6 for that matter. Maybe even T3.

AGREED. If you haven't already, make sure you've applied all over the place in T10. You will get in, with $$$ at great schools

When does scholarship information come? (Sorry for what I'm sure is a huge re-post).

In via voicemail!

167/3.39 when they first got my app but updated to 3.42 yesterday, so I'm not sure which GPA they considered.

Ditto on the scholarship question. None was mentioned in my voicemail. Is it mentioned in the phone call, in the acceptance packet, or in a subsequent letter?

I'm not even under review yet, but my GPA is nowhere near competitive with the others on here who are being WLed. From the sound of it, that might actually be a good thing...

What gives? Worth it to send them a letter asking them to...read my application? Submitted December 10.

But was it in your initial acceptance packet or was it a separate mailing?

Sorry if my questions are getting nit-picky. Haha. I'm just antsy to know what to expect.

it was all in one package. i got a big envelope with i think 3 letters. one was an acceptance letter, one was a huge scholly congratulatory letter, one was a more generic letter about boring things that i can't think of off the top of my head.

In with a voicemail as well. 169/3.48 completed 12/2.

Kinda surprised with all the WL I've been seeing and my lowerish GPA. Maybe my 5 years out of school really do mean something?

Does the package really take ~3 weeks to get there? Is it large?
