I just got the letter email. I am not sure how I feel at this point. I was interested in UC but as a Florida native who already is in at FSU UC is becoming less interesting.

Just got the WL mailing today. Not too worried since I have been accepted to Penn State. I would like to have gotten in for the low in state tuition though. LOCI going out soon!

Nope, never asked. I applied in January if that matters.

Ok. Because I applied around that time, more like mid January, but I think it'll be longer since they wanted another essay that I had to send in. I got another complete email a few days ago saying it would be another 4-6 weeks.

To answer your question from earlier, I heard via e-mail that I was in. I received the acceptance thursday, letter in the mail on Tuesday.

Asking for an additional essay is a good thing, good luck! Hope you hear soon.

Has everyone received their scholarships? I was accepted 1/20 and haven't heard anything about financial aid...

Earlier in the cycle it typically took 3-5 weeks. This is a busy time now so it may take some additional time (or the scholarship pool is becoming more limited).

Couple things. First, does UC not have an online status checker? I got an email a few weeks back saying my file was complete but nothing else.

Also, does UC email or mail decisions? And how long did it take for people to hear back?

No status checker, but I believe that they initially email the decisions, then you get the paper letter later.

Correct, no status checker. I got my confirmation e-mail and then a complete e-mail (same day a few minutes apart). I got my answer two weeks after applying through e-mail and then my letter in the mail.

Congratulations! Good luck :)

Not going to wait on scholarships?

On that note - anyone else heard scholarships now? Should be any time now - 2 weeks since acceptance!

Scholarship offer in today. A bit low, but we'll see.

Still waiting on scholarship info. Just got my letter this weekend, so hopefully money follows soon. Just interested in how much I would save going here.

I imagine it would be hard to beat in-state at UW-M (if you have it).

I was accepted via e-mail last week, and I am waiting on my acceptance/scholarship info. through mail. I am in-state from Youngstown, Ohio. I am going to graduate from Kent State University and my numbers are 158 LSAT and 3.84 GPA. Does anyone know if Cincy has a law day for admitted students or anything of that nature? If so, please let me know.
