I have Ohio State on my schools I am applying to, but they are quite frankly on the lower end. Any of you receive Fee Waivers when you asked Via Email? I have a 171 LSAT and submitted my fairly stacked resume with the request.


I am living in downtown Chicago, and doing that while working a legal clerking job is tough. I don't know if I can justify paying the fee for a school I am not 100% sure about.

They give out very few fee waivers, just FYI.

Hey everyone.

Just checking in with a 11/18 status update. I'm currently Completed, Under Review.

I'm also at OSU for undergrad, and I've heard that this can actually count against you. Anyone know anything about this?

I don't think so. They asked at orientation how many students had gone to OSU for undergrad, and it was a HUGE number. There's a lot lot lot of OSU undegrads here.

Yeah, that's kind of the impression I've gotten when talking to people there, so I'm not too worried about it. Thanks though!

I heard that also when I was applying (OSU undergrad here too). I don't know where that idea came from, but I think there is little truth to it. The only thing I could see is that they like to establish a diverse class in every way possible, including diversity of undergrad institutions. So perhaps if they were deciding between marginal candidates with similar numbers, that would be a factor.

I feel the same way especially if there really is that high of a percentage of OSU grads there now. I was especially alarmed when the application asked for my .# I haven't seen anything like that on any other application. However, I still don't think it's going to make or break us.

I feel like I shouldn't be stressing about finals, considering my transcript is already sent in, yet I can't help it.

I suspect they might do that because all applicants get access to buckeyelink, and they probably don't want duplicates.

Got the call woo hoo! Submitted in October. I wish they'd get scholarship info out sooner but it feel good to get another acceptance under my belt.

Just got a call from a 3L to congratulate me on my acceptance and ask me if I had any questions.

Thanks! Just to clarify though, this was my second phone call. I received the "you're admitted" call on 11/28.

161, 3.8x. Applied and went complete on 9/19.


CONGRATS to everyone else who was accepted!

Did they give you any idea about when it may come? I went Under Review 11/30 and am hoping to get in before Christmas!

I am under review as of 11/30. I applied ED though. Guaranteed a decision by December 23rd. Getting anxious and nervous! Good luck to those still waiting!

2) From your experiences (and you may not apply) what kind of scholarship outside of the merit based ones that were given and the diversity (not thinking im going to be in the running for that one) are available? How likely is FAFSA or financial need based scholarship going to be?

You'll get the $12k, 0% chance at anything else.

I could probably expect close to full ride there, and I'm just not sure I want to have 25,000 in debt just to go to OSU (even though I love it here)

You'll most likely lose any $$$ you get at Akron, and its not a very good law school. Any job you could get from Akron (you mentioned connections) you would definitely be able to get from OSU, plus if you decide you don't want to be in Akron or you want to move later on down the line, you don't have that Akron albatross hanging around your neck.

So have any RD people heard yet? I've been UR since 11/18. It looks like last year around this time they sent out pretty many decisions, but they've been pretty quiet recently it seems.

Just throwing it out there that last year I applied slightly earlier than you (like a week) and didn't hear until 12/29. I hope you hear soon!
