I kind of like that they sent out a decent sized batch of admits in late Oct/early Nov. Makes me feel like the early bird may get a worm here. I wonder if they were all ED or...? OK, fine, HP/Gob just made 27 threads, I suppose I can do a tiny bit of research on my own.

Never mind, looks like the earliest was mid-November, even with a September app. *whistles while walking away*

There is no real answer to that. None of the data we have is rock solid with respect to hiring ITE. That being said, Mich places a large chunk of its class into biglaw, has a much wider reach than Cornell as it feeds into the Chicago legal market as, and isn't in motherfucking Ithaca. I would apply, at the very least, to see if I could use it to leverage scholarship money.

That's probably what I'm going to end up doing, even though I have no desire to live in Chicago and am ED'ing NYU. Eh, worst case scenario I'm out $80.

If I could get a 175+ and Michigan by some miracle let me in with my low GPA, I could die happy.

Oh, and as a post grad Wolverine I am in on this thread so hard. Probably one of my top two "target" schools assuming I can push my LSAT up just a little bit more in the next month and a half.
