iowalum. IUB is really slow. Don't worry that you aren't hearing back right away. And as I say it, Steelers nation is crying

Thanks, just paranoid I guess. And don't worry, it can't be worse than suffering through the Colts every week.

Has anyone received the official packet in the mail yet? I got my acceptance/scholarship e-mail in December, but no hard copy in the mail...not a big deal, just wondering...

Got my status checker!

Question - for you OOS'ers does it say 'Resident' under Residency? Or something else? And do they mean a resident of Indiana or the state they have under the Permanent State? I know this sounds stupid but I'm trying to figure out if they are considering me OOS or in-state. I guess I could just email but I'd rather sound like an idiot here than in an email to the adcomm.

Thanks! I assumed that's what it meant, but wanted to make sure because it has my permanent state as IA (which is where I'm from), but lists Resident below.

I submitted on 11/3 and haven't seen any movement. I retook the LSAT in December, so I assume that slowed down my application; however, I have had the score back for a week now and still no movement.

Yep, haven't heard a thing. I did update my transcript a few days ago, would that slow things down at all?

Are LOR's historically heavily relied upon or is it more or less a numbers game here? I believe one of mine is not very strong simply due to writing style ... I seem to remember last year IU-B being pretty straight forward if you had the numbers... hopefully.

All indications seem to be numbers-driven. LSN data from last year show very few outliers that aren't easily explained by date of application. So long as the LOR doesn't say you're an unethical person with questionable academic abilities, you should be fine.

This may be a stupid question, but does anyone know why I'm still showing to be missing ethical questions and residency form? I don't remember filling out a residency from so if anyone knows where i can find one please help. Also, I was under the impression that the ethical questions were the character and fitness....but is that something else too? Grrr.

You do need to fill out the residency form (it's part of the application) and you can download it on the website.

The 'ethical questions' thing I am still "missing" and don't know that that is.

Please attach the completed INDIANA UNIVERSITY MAURER SCHOOL OF LAW RESIDENCE CLASSIFICATION FORM FOR U.S. CITIZENS AND PERMANENT RESIDENTS. The Residency Affidavit Form is located in the Forms section of this application.


Don't know if this helps...

Accepted via email on the 23rd of December, yet no mention of a scholarship offer. Still waiting on my snail mail delivery.

Do scholarship offers typically accompany the acceptance e-mail, or do they arrive along with the admit packet?
If the former, do I have any chance at $$ later in the cycle?

3.15/167, if you're wondering. Not keen on attending IU-B at sticker.

Thanks in advance, and congratulations to those who have been admitted so far!

Yikes. Same numbers, hopefully this isn't the trend. It's ridiculous, last year we would have had full rides

I think Indiana's medians are going to take a big hit if they fail to offer big scholarships to qualified applicants. Looking at other schools in the region like Illinois, WUSTL, etc., a $120k discount could really tip the scales towards Indiana. Take away the money and IUB becomes a lot less attractive.

I don't want to say anything bad about Indiana again. Especially since I would have been really excited to attend had I gotten the 120k (or even if they were to do something like OOS waivers + 10k).

I'm more surprised by the sudden change of direction. Some have said that this is a long run strategy, which I could agree with. It just seems like, given the state of the law school climate as it is (Illinois taking a rankings hit and everyone likely seeing some slowdown in what has been a rapid median inflation over the last decade) IUB could have been primed to really do something incredible this year.

I could easily see their current strategy back-firing, putting them two steps back. Then again, people have said that there are a lot of defers and if Indiana offers 120k to enough people over both medians, they could surprise everyone yet.
