Received scholarship info today. 30k/year. Anyone know if Minnesota goes any higher than that? Even 5k more per year would make it very difficult to turn down.

$35k/yr here, so I know it goes higher. I also have heard of a couple (but very few) people with full rides. I was hoping to be one of them but it didn't work out that way. Then again, $35k is in-state tuition so maybe thats the thought process.

My full ride (120k) is resident tuition. They were sure to clarify that it's a full ride in the letter.

If you're not planning to settle in MN, don't come here. In fact, even if you are planning to settle, don't come here.

Job prospects are atrocious. Career center is useless. Students think they're God's gift to Earth. The only thing that's worth a damn is the faculty. There are some truly amazing professors here.

This part could be said of just about any law school.

UMN seems pretty good at sniping the kids that are maybe kind of sort of using them as a safety. They WLed the shit out of me too, and hats off to them, it was the right call.

My strength is interview, I was hoping BU would give me an interview by waitlist me but they ding'd me. Talked my way to be admit at W&L within 15 minutes. But MNO is dead to me, I will send a LOCI but no interview to me is no chance to escape the "wait zone". I need a date with the admission dean...no homo

Judging from the LSN graph, would you guys say if waitlists applied in nove, we would have had a much better chance of getting in instead of being wait zoned?


Considering this post I'm not surprised your strength is interview.

What exactly are you asking?

Waitlisted this morning. Not shocked because my LSAT is way below (10+) median and my gpa is only a tiny below. Glad it wasn't a flat out rejection that I thought I was going to get. And applied late - mid-February.

Waitlisted: 161 and 3.71, so obviously more than I was expecting.

All things equal, law school seat deposits should be made on the basis of Big Ten conference standings.
