So someone else on this website made it up then? Please people, did we not learn to cite sources?

A little over 2 months for me.

Got a letter from Iowa in the mail yesterday, I was seriously hoping it might be scholarship info (it wasn't). I love Iowa, but without $$ I can't justify going when I have offers at other schools.

I got into Iowa maybe 2 weeks ago. No scholarship money as of yet but I have received several letters/emails. One of which was from a shareholder/lawyer at a BigLaw firm in Philly who is an Iowa alum. It was a "generic" email urging me to attend Iowa and contact him with any questions...regardless I thought this was pretty cool.

I still can't find it after a search and a thorough exam. Was this just thrown out in fear?

I have a 160/ 3.3 and I'm OOS as well as a non URM. I am attending grad school and have fairly decent softs, but nothing overly earth shattering. I'm so surprised I was accepted, and so quickly to boot...but I'm so excited that I was!! I wish you best of luck!

Yep :D Yesterday I got another letter from UofI encouraging me to pick them there was even a bit of personalization to it, which is nice. Plus they found really good student/alum/staff matches to contact me and they've all been helpful. BTW did we know editors on the journals qualify for in-state tuition too? Just thought I'd throw that out there. I'm thinking the fuzzies are associated with the amount of effort they're putting in to make us feel like humans instead of just an LSAC barcode

They also give you in-state your second and/or third year for being a research assistant for a professor. I only paid OOS my first year, so it was really good deal overall.

yeah I knew about the TA/RA thing, but editors was new info for me. I think it's pretty sweet because you won't have to try to job hunt + work on a journal + RA. That'd be super awful!

+ :D... excited to meet you guys at ASD!!!

I'm also adding myself to the "warm fuzzies" group... I'm getting between 1-2 emails a day directed at my interests, and some of my schools can't even do me the courtesy of spelling my name right. Point Iowa!

SIDE NOTE -- how're people feeling about the April 1 first seat deposit deadline? Is it just me, or is that seriously early?

I believe April 1 is the national deadline for seat deposits.

I applied to a school with April 15 deadline, but April 1 is certainly very common.

Right, but the 1st is the first day the ABA allows schools to require deposits. There are no deposits due before that date.

Never received scholly info. :| I figured when I was accepted within two weeks in December, I'd get something. I had a letter in the mail today, but of course it was just sone form letter with a paragraph inserted about my employer and work experience. Stop sending me letters Iowa, unless they are to offer me money.
