Just submitted a week ago (had to wait for December LSAT scores). Sounds like I will be waiting for a while. :(

my e-mail said scholarship info would come with the formal acceptance, and that the formal acceptance would follow the e-mail. So I'm guessing that means within the next week?

I am starting to think I will never actually get a decision. Still "Under Review" since 11/16.

+1 to still being under review 11/16 with a little lower LSAT and little higher GPA.

In via email. Assigned to Carlisle (per the box I checked). 162/2.91(extreme upward trend).

Anybody have any experience with both campuses and the ability/willingness to list any significant differences before I schedule my visits?

UP is the main Penn St campus so has over 50,000 UG students plus however many grad students. It's a nice little college town. Carlisle is a small town but that campus would only have law students but Dickinson College is next door. Even with them there though, it's a lot quieter so better environment for school. Carlisle is also close to Harrisburg, the capital, and a couple hours from NY and DC. If you want the Penn St experience to the max UP is the right campus but if you wanna make connections at the capital and have a quieter setting then Carlisle is the right campus.

Not to insult anyone at UP but I feel that if you're really serious about being a lawyer, Carlisle is the right choice. There's no distractions, there's actually more to do b/c of Harrisburg nearby, and it's a lot better for making connections. In case people don't realize this yet, the vast, vast majority of Penn St grads are gonna have to do their own legwork to get a job. If you wanna experience Penn St football and that kind of stuff, you can always drive up for a game once in a while but this is law school, not UG anymore. Time to get serious.

+1 I have nightmares about that and Penn state is my top choice though I will admit it's a bit of a reach school
