Always welcome news. I think that with Iowa taking off its scholarship stipulations (which will bring in those higher LSAT/GPA scores who now won't fear losing their scholarship), and the new importance of hiring in US News Rankings, the ranking game will play favorably for Iowa in the next few years. Iowa's ability to decrease its class size has been solid.


Smaller class sizes helps too

Congrats! I just spent the weekend in Iowa City visiting the school and checking the area out. My wife and I decided today that we're going to accept the offer. I'm really excited to move up there and get started.

Anyone else going to be in Iowa City tonight? I'm driving in tonight so I can check out the city tomorrow before everything starts.

How long after your acceptance letter did you receive scholarship info? It's been a couple weeks since the letter came in and I'm thinking of calling the office today and asking about merit consideration.

Has anybody had any luck w/ negotiating $? Either from a no offer or from some other starting point? I have a 50% at UIUC that I'm really hoping I can use as leverage, but I didn't know what other's experiences have been like so far this cycle.

I'm not sure Illinois is considered a peer school anymore since it is more than 20 spots behind Iowa. But its worth a shot.

Scholarships are on a rolling basis, so you'll get your letter if money opens up for you. I know that sounds ambiguous, but really that's the hardest thing to predict from Iowa.

Do you work for Iowa Law? Because really the admissions and financial aid crew are the only ones that can tell us whether or not a UIUC scholarship holds any persuasiveness for scholarship negotiation.

Just received a very generous scholarship offer through email. Was planning on going to Wisconsin for the Minnesota reciprocity rates, but this complicates things quite a bit.

does anyone know why orientation starts on a Sunday? I'm suppose to be going to a bachelorette party that weekend in Vegas and I'm wondering if we actually do stuff that day or if it is just picking up books or something.

Received a full tuition scholarship. My numbers aren't that impressive so I am a bit in shock right now. When I read the letter I burst into tears. So excited.

Just withdrew. Hope it opens up a spot for someone. :)
