Did they raise in-state tuition again? I thought it already went up once for c/o 2015?

On a related note, why is Minnesota so expensive? $43,000/yr for an OOS student seems awfully steep, but maybe that's just me. Anyone know how receptive UMN is to negotiation?

My under review got updated today from 12/5 to 12/23. I went complete 11/23. Wonder if this means decision today before the holidays? That would be a nice gift :-D

+1. I didn't realize how expensive it was. Especially for a public school.

Not generous enough, lol. Even with a $23,000 annual scholarship, you'd still be shelling out $20,000/yr plus the expenses of a major metropolitan area. Maybe I've grown stingy, but that still seems really expensive for a school that primarily places in an over-saturated market and travels poorly outside the state. I'm hoping I can leverage other scholarship offers for a better deal from UMN, otherwise I'll be withdrawing in short order. Minnesota's good, but they're not worth that kind of debt (to me, at least).

To see another waitlist is really going to hit my heart. I'm clearly not emotionally well enough to go through law school right now. If waiting for admissions is causing me this amount of heartache, think of the kind of nut I'd be in law school. It's not worth it.

I need to grow up a bit. Deal with my own issues. I'll get around to withdrawing from the rest of my schools sooner or later. This cycle was the ultimate bust for me.

I've worked with hundreds of applicants throughout this process... I understand. You can't let law school (or any one aspect of your life, for that matter) define you and your happiness. You're right to deal with that now, before it turns into a mid life crisis and a huge loan debt. But it'll be ok. Let the cycle pan out; stop withdrawing from schools. You may ultimately decide not to go this coming year; but you'll at least learn a lot from this cycle.

Meanwhile, relax and enjoy the holidays.

Best,

--Josh

dude, relax/ calm down, and stop over reacting... wait until you actually don't get into any schools before falling over the edge.

Does anyone know or had experience with an in review update? Is that normally a good thing or not?

Congrats! Saw you got in over in the L&C thread, too. Sounds like a good day for you. When'd you submit?


Submitted November 15th and yes, the last few days have been pretty good.

Got in today via the most awkward phone call ever. 166/169, 3.68, non-URM.

The store I work at blasts loud music all the time, I saw the out of state area code on my phone at work and rushed outside to answer it. Trouble was, I was still hearing more of the store music than the phone call and I'm pretty sure the person calling could hear the music too. I was super nervous and couldn't hear most of what he was saying...I didn't get the name of the school he was calling from and had to look up the 612 area code later.

Hopefully not! My status checker hasn't been updated since 12/23.
