I submitted by application 11/24 and have been checking that status page, but it says the school still hasn't received my letters of recommendation, but all of the other schools I've applied to have received them. Should I be worried, or should I contact the school? Not sure if I should wait a little longer. Good luck to everyone applying!

I would double check your credentials page on LSAC and make sure you assigned your letters to Ohio state. I missed the letters on one of my schools this way.

Finished my last final of my first semester at Moritz today meaning I won't have study-guilt when I spend time on TLS. I'll be around if you guys have any questions about OSU :)

I'm cautiously optimistic. One thing about law school - you will study at a level you have not yet experienced. Really, it's crazy.

I live in Victorian Village/Harrison West and I love it! I'm only 2 miles from the law school but away from the more crime-ridden areas and away from the undergrad party areas. A good place to check for listings is http://metro-rentals.com/ Some other good areas are Clintonville and Grandview, they're a bit further away. In the campus area, I wouldn't look anywhere east of High St.

The school will push the South Campus Gateway apartments. They are extremely convenient since they're are next door to the law school but they are pretty expensive especially for their size.

Congrats! Unfortunately the top awards they give don't seem to differ between in-state and out-of-state students, but if you decide to come here, you'll probably be able to get in-state your 2L and 3L years. (There are some things you have to do, but I've heard many are successful.)

Still in review, but I just noticed that they listed me as "out of state" even though I've lived in Ohio my whole life except for undergrad and keep my permanent address at my parent's house in Ohio. Guess I'll need to talk to someone about that if I decide to go...

I've been under review since 11/18. Above both 75ths... So in a word: long. Hopefully they start moving after the new year!

Good luck!

Congrats to all the new admits! Did anyone else receive an email about the Moritz Merit Scholarship for full in-state plus a stipend?
