UG at UMN; applied JDP and have already been accepted to the other program via phone. 1st quartile GPA, 3rd quartile LSAT. Did much better on GRE's than on LSAT. Maybe should have allocated prep time a little differently, but it's in the past now. Obvious ties to the city on my resume and in contained in personal statement that was focused more on why the JDP than why UMN.
Can say to everyone else: There's about two months where the weather's truly bad - and half it it school isn't even in session. UMN starts after Labor Day and after MLK day, so commuting to campus is only truly "bad" for about four weeks. (Bad defined <15 deg F) Summers in MN more than make up for it though (and there are more miles of lakefront in MN than there is shoreline in Cali.) Happy to field questions about the MPLS/StP for anyone.
Disclaimer: I'm not making fun of you, just illustrating a difference of perspective.
You say that bad is defined at <15 deg F.. I am from Texas and I'm not sure I'd be able to tell the difference between 30 and anything below that lol. On the flip side, I'd define bad weather here as anything over 100 deg F (which happens for at least a month and a half every year..)
Anyways, when do people in MN start considering the weather to be "nice?"
