Waitlisted by e-mail.

I guess now I can bitch about Minnesota weather like everyone else who doesn't get into a school in a cold region. But I won't, because people that bitch about cold weather are pathetic.

I have a 161/3.58 (upward trend), could you guys expand a bit on your application? (in state? softs? etc)

I've been in review since 12/21, this wait is killing me :/

Waitlisted as well, with 161/3.4. Was expecting a rejection, so this is decent news.

You'll get waitlisted. HIGHLY unlikely that you will get in. Sorry :-(

Out-of-state, combat vet, 8 years w/e. My cycle has been all over the place, though. In at Iowa (highest ranked so far), dinged at lower T2's, a T3, and a T4.

Trust me, it's only because my gf is set on Minneapolis for our settling grounds. I'd much prefer Boulder for school and Denver for work after... But, alas, the girl usually wins, and I'd prefer not to go to St. Thomas if I can (though the full-ride still sounds really good).

Edit: Please don't make William Mitchell comments. I refuse to pay an extra $60k to go there over UST.

I don't know anything about midwest schools besides UIUC Uchi and NU, honestly, so I wouldn't make any comments regardless. Good luck

congrats!! I'm probably going to ASW on April 8...only thing that's really stopping me is T14 acceptances, which I probably won't get. I'm just hoping for NU and I'm set.

Offered the Walter J. Trogner Merit Scholarship!! Full tuition granted for three years, as long as I keep up +2.5 GPA. This certainly pushes UMN up my list of choices. :)

Not for nothing, Chris, but unless you're planning on marrying this girl don't base your decision on where she wants to settle. Remember you'll be the one with the J.D. and its corresponding debt and salary. Just my humble opinion after seeing a lot of friends get screwed over in graduate/professional school.

What else could it be besides YP? I'm really surprised at these numbers.

In-state, worked 30-40 hours per week last 2 years of undergrad, internship with ACLU in DC, internship with the Public Defender in my county. Wrote a "Why Minnesota" as well.

Edit: and yes, the wait sucks :(
