If it was Nick Wallace, he really is pretty cool. I got a chance to chat with him for a bit last weekend and really got on well with him. Dan Cheng was also very friendly but I didn't get much time to talk with him.


I had spoken with Dan before, he's extremely friendly.

Did you ask what the scholarship was and he wouldn't tell you? Thinking about calling to ask but I won't if I'm gonna get shot down haha

Good to know, thanks. I am below median so I am not expecting much.

Does anyone know when they want their first deposit? I remember reading it somewhere but could not find it again.


Oh, and congrats btw.

$750 by april 15th :(

Just called to ask about the admitted students login and scholarship info since I won't be home to check my mail for a while. If anyone's impatient like me, your admitted students login is your email address on your application and the password is your LSAC# starting with the L.

Also, they gave me 90k, 166/3.7

ETA: I talked to Dan, he's a really nice guy.

I don't think $750 is very high. It seems to be standard or even a little lower. Sure beats GW's $1500…

I asked if the scholarship determination had been made. He quickly deflected by telling me it'd be in the packet, otherwise I would've asked him how much. The way he said it was ambiguous as to whether or not I even got money, so we'll see.

Yeah, I didn't realize UMN has only one larger deposit instead of two smaller ones like most schools. Just makes it harder to pay with the intention of eating it, which is probably what they're going for

Yeah....I doubt he had the info. He does quite a few of those calls in a row.

So I whittled out the details of my borrowing need, and have determined that I can absolutely justify attending if I can get my scholarship up to $100-$105k from $84,000

Really hope they come through. Anyone know Minnesota's need based aid history?

There is very little need based aid for law school, to my knowledge.

GWU gave me $16k/year in need based.

In off the waitlist yesterday. I've gotten 200% more movement at Minnesota than almost all my other applications.

I find this surprising that's much more than I would have expected from them.

It's probably because no one in my family has a positive net worth. Schools do give need based aid, but Minnesota isn't one. They're very generous with merit aid and they don't ask for any parent info, so FAFSA for them is just so you can get grad plus loans.

Someone post some pics of the campus/city/law school that I can ogle while I wait for my acceptance packet.
