I submitted my app on 12/21, but wasn't officially complete until they received my December LSAT score on January 19.

Just fyi, the acceptance letter said they started with scholarship decisions late last month and will inform students as needed via mail.

No kidding, haha. Although I think waiting for a scholarship letter is going to be tougher than waiting for a decision letter. At least with the decision you know something is coming, whether it is an accept/WL/reject. If you don't get a scholarship, nothing is coming.

This is true. A scholly will also play a big part in my decision to attend (if admitted of course), so hopefully that won't take five years as well... but, I am getting ahead of myself. :mrgreen:

Yeah, I almost wish they send a letter to everyone like W&L, indicating whether you got a scholarship or not.

Or just give everyone (EDIT: else) :) who isn't getting a scholarship $1/yr, so they get something in the mail.

Oh no. I'm so sorry. You're not going to try for it? I may be at the Denver one as well, not sure yet.

Waitlisted today via snail mail. :cry:

159/3.8. Went complete 12/01. I guess I'm going to ride it out, even though I know it's an exercise in futility. Congrats to everyone who got in! Even though I hate you... JK. Kind of.

I heard Colorado (specifically Boulder) has hot women. Thus I really hope i get in, oh and the law school isn't so bad.

Shame, a point or 2 higher would have probably got you in.

Well, we all have to make our priorities... and also make some sacrifices.

Gah, that sucks!

I'm going to Denver ASD - just registered. I think krad is going to, so we'll all have to make plans to meet up.

Sucks big time. I guess my acceptance at WUSTL gave me false hope. Getting waitlisted by both of my top 2 is a huge bummer... Especially since I did so well on the LSAT. Oh well, I wouldn't trade my undergraduate experience for anything. Sorry my mom got cancer and was hospitalized for a total of 18 weeks during my junior year.

I'll ride the waitlist, but Denver gave me $20k a year, and St. Thomas gave me a full ride... So I'll ride the waitlist at UMN and CU, but won't go for sticker, bottom line. I'd pay $20k TOTAL more for CU over DU, and $60k more for UMN over St Thomas... Other than that, it's a lower ranked school in my target market, or #26 Iowa with in-state tuition. Unless WUSTL is just so smitten by me that the want to make my total COA $120k or lower...

... If any of you want to meet up in Boulder the weekend of March 25th, I'll be visiting the school that morning (Friday) before heading to DU ASD after lunch. Will probably stay in Boulder on Thursday, party that night, and check out the school for a couple hours around nine and catch the bus to Denver since the gf will have the rental car in Ft. Collins visiting CSU. Hit me up if you want to drink with me in Boulder Thursday March 24th or Denver Friday March 25th, or possibly hit Breck on Saturday or Sunday that weekend.

Love you all, congrats to all that got in... Let's still hang out even if we go to "rival" Colorado law schools.

Hey man. I just looked into visiting Boulder the morning of March 25th. Turns out they have spring break that weekend and the university is actually closed that day. I might just go walk around myself that morning, or go a day early. They are offering tours on the 24th but there are obviously no classes. I'm not sure yet what I'll do. It sucks.
