That would be nice. Would Minnesota be a good value to attend with that scholly?

Generally, yeah.

Keep in mind about 40% of the class will be attending at sticker.

Me too. I am expecting it tomorrow or Friday. I do live all the way down in Florida though


Heard over the phone from Minnesota Friday, then BU on Monday. This song is on repeat until further notice.

For me it's going to come down to Texas or Minnesota probably (esp. with Minnesota's full ride in my pocket). Texas is the better school, but I think I would rather be more likely to spend my life in Minneapolis than Austin. To some that may sound like heresy but I think Austin will become a hot Minneapolis in 15 years. ANYWAY, what I'm getting at is that I'd presume a lot of UMN students stay in the Cities because 1) They are super nice; 2) There is some biglaw there (and a lot of Fortune 500 headquarters, and a shit-ton of nonprofits if that's your bag); and 3) COL isn't really that bad; and 4) I would hazard a guess that, in a vacuum, Minnesota is a more desirable place to live than Missouri.

FWIW one of my profs told me they are upping the class size this year, taking the revenue over high medians. So I would expect medians to drop this year.

His tend to be a bit less effusive about the Twin Cities, but this is a really great song regardless: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xITBf23Z3RI

For those who don't know, Minneapolis has an insanely awesome hip-hop scene for some reason.

(EDIT: Eydea was from St. Paul so I guess it's just the Twin Cities in general)

I have a C- that is not counted in that, but like four or five A+'s that my UG doesn't give anything extra for either. I also had like 138 credits, so changes will be minimal. That probably puts my LSAC GPA at like a 3.72-3.73. I should get my packet tomorrow, as long as the mail comes in on time. If not, I am going out of town for the weekend and wouldn't get it until Sat-Sun. I will let you guys know.

Edit: Just calculated it and it looks to be a 3.73. Like I said, right on the border, it would seem.



$99k.


That's not too shabby; congrats! If someone had told me how important minute differences in GPA would be when I was in college my whole story would be different haha.

Thanks, you as well. And I know, right? I can't believe a C- I received six years ago could have made a $40,000 difference!


Well like, I just assumed that when it came to college you could get off the treadmill a bit, that schools would look at your transcript and be like 'oh he got a 3.5/3.67/3.75 (or whatever), he's not stupid, bring him on' but that is APPARENTLY NOT THE CASE THANKS RANKINGS METRICS

28k/yr or 84k over 3 years on 2.5 gpa stipulation. That's a negligible stipulation, right?

at ASW they made it clear it was literally impossible to sink below 2.5

Just making sure.

I feel like there has to be a catch here, right? They're pulling a larger class and dropping their medians/rank or something, right?
