Anybody else going for the U? Hoping to get in so I can practice in Utah with minimal debt.

Checking in as well. Utah looks to be the best of all mountain west schools. Sure CU gets the hype but the employment numbers are better for Utah... by a fair bit.

Really hoping to get admitted.

I know that you can get in state tuition after a year and a summer but does anyone know if they ever offer out of state tuition waivers? I doubt it but thought I would ask!

Not sure about the law school, but one of my friends who came here for UG from Colorado wasn't able to get in-state tuition until like three years into her degree. She was doing some intermountain program though so that may not be the case for everyone, particularly in the law school. If nothing else you may be able to get a scholarship that's equivalent.

In other news, status update today! In review as of 12/11. Mine was listed in review already, because I had to call them up and make a correction to the application re: my LOR, but I think this one means it's actually in review for realsies. Hopefully we start hearing back soon.

--LinkRemoved--

The law school says 40 credit hours... Which basically means you have to take classes the first summer. Not a big deal but three years of in state tuition would be better than 2 (summers are charged the in state rate which is nice).

Oh, that's not bad at all then. And if you could talk them into it for your first year, so much the better.

Alright, review time! Good luck!

Good to see ya'all going for the U! Expect to wait a pretty long time to find out if you're admitted/scholarships, I applied in November and didn't hear back til March. I'm a 1L going through finals right now and it's hell, but the school is great, the professors are phenomenal, and the only thing really lacking are the facilities.

Jesus. That's ridiculous. Well, thanks for the heads up--I'll try to avoid getting (more) neurotic for the next three months.

Glad to hear you like it, though. Facilities are supposed to be done in 2014 right?

Yeah, don't beat yourself up waiting. What were your numbers?

Ha...the current dean is leaving, and I'm sure that'll slow down construction. They were planning on having it done end of '14/beginning of '15, but I'll be shocked if it's done before fourth quarter of '15.

3.17, 169. Hoping they need the high LSAT.

Yeah, I heard Chodosh is going somewhere in California or something, isn't he? It's too bad, he seemed like he knew what he was doing.

Oh well, I guess I'll get one semester in the new building anyway.

I'd be surprised if you didn't get in with those numbers.

Yeah Chodosh is brilliant, he's going to be president of Claremont-McKenna.

Congratulations Nick! I am now lamenting the fact that I didn't get my apps in sooner.

Oh well. Now its the long wait until the new year for me!

Thanks! Don't sweat it too much, looks like nobody else on LSN has heard back yet--they may have just wanted the LSAT, or they may have prioritized in-state applicants, or both.

Grats! When did you go complete if you don't mind me asking? Did your status checker change? The more I read about Utah the more I want to go!

I will probably just stare at my phone until it rings with a SLC caller ID.

Congrats 1693! I haven't gotten the packet yet, but like I said, Aguilar claims scholarship info won't go out till the first week of March. Hopefully it'll actually be earlier and he's just doing a CYA, but I'm not expecting anything anytime soon.

Also Pip, I don't know about 1693 but my status checker still hasn't changed from "In Review." And SLC area code is 801 :).

Good tip! Luckily my phone says the city below the number. I got a call from Laramie WY the other day and I was like, "huh." Then I remembered what's in Laramie. It was a pretty funny 1 second long internal monologue.

Heh, I did the same thing with Alabama--"Who the heck is calling me from Tuscaloo--oh right!" It's annoying though, I keep getting Seattle calls, and they're all from recorded spambots and not UW.
