I love Minneapolis! How would I fare there as I am a Tigers and Red Wings fan...?

Huh.... Tigers are my favorite team in any sport. The tough part is being in the same division as a rival in a city I love. Huge Tiger fan! Thanks for the advice. Should I be granted admission I'll have to contemplate how much Tigers/Red Wings gear I bring.

As a Yankees fan, I can say I wear my hat proudly but I definitely get my fair share of evil stares.

Well nobody's going to beat you up for wearing your gear- but Jaeger is right, be prepared for evil stares.

I live in Minneapolis. I work with someone who wears his Steelers hat Every. Single. Day. Knit in the winter, baseball in the summer. One time, when I saw him out running, he had a Nittany Lions hat on instead.

So, you'd not be alone.

Their deposit dates are coming up - I'd wager most waitlist movement would be after that.

Hey Guys! I just received news of being wait listed at University of Minnesota! Any other Waitlisters on here? I sent in some additional documents that should bolster my application a bit along with a letter of continued interest! This is def. my dream law school! Good Luck to all of you waiting, and congrats to all those who were accepted!

numbers: 155/3.0 (not great, but got me on a wait list!)

Try Law School Transparency. They have the stats for that I think...

Hey, when did you go into review? I just recently went to "review" and want to know about how long I have to wait for a decision.

Thanks.

I believe I went into review sometime late Feb. took them a while to get back to me!

So, I guess based on this thread the 1st seat deposit deadlines vary from the 15th -20th? Cant wait to see some wait list movement!

I am too lazy to check. Did they have much waitlist movement last year?

So I guess I'll be seeing you guys in the fall!


congrats!

I applied here about two months ago, despite having absolutely zero ties to the area. Late Saturday night, however, I got a text message from a bizarre number asking "Where are you?" and I never got a response, so after googling the area code I found out it was from Minneapolis - St. Paul....

Strange coincidence?

nah, probably just a serial killer trying to find out where you are. On a more serious note, surprised that Hollywood hasn't come out with a garbage horror flick based on texting. There was a movie called "One missed phone call" which looked awful. "One last text" hasn't been done yet.
