+1! I know we've had people in Property and Con Law this semester...and those would not be my first choice to send prospective students too :?

I'm not sure of the timeline this year, but I can tell you that admissions and financial aid are two separate decision made by two different groups of faculty/administration/etc. So your financial aid stuff will come after and separate from other admissions information.

With a LSDAC GPA of 3.4 and a LSAT score of 161, is the fact I haven't been rejected yet after being complete and UR for 12-13 weeks a good sign for either being accepted or waitlisted, or does it not really matter?

I think it means they are probably figuring out their situation for the incoming class..... so, I vote for either an acceptance or WL.

My property and civpro classes are awesome...I don't think any visitors have come to any of my classes, though.

Are any of you guys going to the admitted students weekend? I know I'm looking forward to getting a better look at the school.

Those of you coming to the this last one will get a view of the school that the other's haven't - the atmosphere when finals are only two weeks away :/

Again, happy to answer questions or meet up with anyone! If you find that you want more info/less structured tour/whatever, shoot me a PM!

I may take you up on that. Would you be free this weekend? Like Saturday? I'll be out of the country on the next ASW.

I can come, too. :) LTQ and I are in different sections and have very little overlap in our interests, so between the two of us, we can probably address most questions.

I was hoping you'd say that but didn't want to offer you up without asking, lol!

Yeah, you'll definitely get a good cross-section of the first year experience between the two of us :)

Terrific! I just realized I most likely do not have work on Friday. Does that work for both of you?

I know Lwoods does not have classes on Friday :evil:. I do - legislation from 8:45 to 10:00 and property from 1:30-2:40...you're more than welcome to come sit in on a class. Also, if you're going to come on a Friday, you can also reach out to admissions/financial aid/etc. if you want to talk to anyone. Pretty sure admissions will do a one on one and give you all the info they give at ASWs :) I'm still happy to meet up with you that day too, since I have a very long break between my classes.

I'm free whenever. Just found out I won't have to go to this lunch on Friday after all, so let me know when works best for you guys. LTQ, you know where to find me, haha.

I'm in a similar boat. I got a 10k/yr scholarship today and have a 3.44 and a 163. This really makes my decision difficult.

Got 16k a year today. 163/3.91 IS. My biggest offer, with the exception of full schollys to lesser schools. Makes it very tough to decide. Will be attending ASD in April, anyone else?

Been in review for weeks now, like all the other BIG10 schools I applied to.

Think I'm getting dinged at OSU, though....my app was sloppy. :(

I went complete 1/31, under review since then. I'm not sure if it's taking so long because of my numbers's being so borderline for Moritz, or if everyone is in the same boat regardless of their numbers. FYI my #'s are 160/3.62/Military veteran. The only thing I am sure of is that Moritz is far and away my first choice, and I have a terrible feeling I'm going to get a waitlist e-mail very soon.

If it's of value, I'd accept you! Decent LSAT/GPA and veteran status = good enough for me.

The bad news? ...I'm obviously not on the admissions committee. :lol:

Good luck.
