No and it stresses me out. Why cant some school just gimme a full ride so I don't have to worry about this anymore.(or enough to where I don't have to break into dat grad plus)


If you want a full ride I'd either retake or if you don't want to do that just wait a year or two. I originally applied last year and got some decent schollys but no full rides. I decided not to go and applied again this year and got two full rides. They weren't to schools I had applied to the year before but there really just as good. Less and less people are applying to law schools and thus the schools are freaking out and giving out more money to attend. Also OU doesn't really give out a whole lot of money.

But that's neither here nor there re OU Law.

Hmm...well what can you tell me about what to expect on admitted students day?

Not sure, never attended one. I'm sure they put on a show, though. Nice facilities, and they usually cater legit food at school functions. Not sure why this would be different.

They probably wouldn't let me near admitted students, anyway. :lol:

This. I'm not sure they give any incoming students a full ride. But I could be entirely wrong, though. They used to love those in-state tuition waivers.

I personally like Pepe Delgados, but the best is driving to OKC for Abuelos. Sounds like I need to try Chuy's this weekend, though.

Back to your regularly scheduled OU Law programming.

Yes sir, I am born and raised here. How long after did they send papers/scholarship info? Also, is there some orientation we have to do before the 20th?

Before the 20th? Ummm I'm not sure...I think maybe the fafsa is what you're thinking about. It took me a couple of days on the papers...and the scholarship came a month later. Given that the deposit is due April 1st id maybe contact them to see if you can get it earlier.

Yeah I probably will have to get on that tomorrow. I haven't even received my admissions paperwork yet as I just got accepted on Thursday. Perhaps I should call Susan Wilson?

I will call or email her in the morning. EAP classes start on the 20th of May. Here is the link for it: http://www.ou.edu/content/dam/admission ... lendar.pdf

I was just wondering if you knew if we had to go through some admitted student orientation by then. Have you found a place to live yet?

Oh durrr.....I knew that. I bet there's a small orientation before that but I think we have to go to the big one in the fall too. I don't know where ill be staying over the summer but I know a lot of 1 Ls live in the traditions by the law school. I might stay there in the fall.

Oh okay. That makes sense. I'm looking for a one bedroom apartment near campus, but everything I find is so expensive. More expensive now = More debt later. haha. I am sure my letter will come in this week...

Oklahoma has one of the lowest cost of living out of all the law schools. The farther away from campus the get the even cheaper you'll find. Lemme know if you need any specific help on finding something in a certain price range.

I lived in Traditions for 2 years and it was pretty overpriced for what you can get elsewhere in Norman. Gotta weigh that against being able to walk to class, but it's not like it's a pain in the ass to get to class if you only live a mile or two away and have to drive.

I'm looking for something within reasonable distance to campus, but in the 500-700 price range. Do you know of any place?

The Links and The Greens are pretty nice and not terribly expensive, although they are higher than a lot of places in Norman. I have a roommate in a 2BR/2Bath and it's about $550/month after you figure in utilities, cable, internet, etc. Plus I get free golf, which is cool. It's further away than a lot of the apartment complexes, but it still only takes me about 10-15 minutes to get to my UG classes. The law school parking lot is even closer. It's a little higher than my old place at Post Oak, but I like it a lot more.

Honestly, the commute to campus isn't bad from anywhere in Norman as long as you don't have to drive down Lindsey.

ETA: If you want a one bedroom, I think the cheapest one runs about $700-750 after you include cable, internet, and utilities.

Umm off the top of my head? Post oak I think is very close and has some nice studios (not sure abouts the price to be honest but I know its afforadable).

Traditions, Post Oak and Avalon Apartments are all insanely close to the law school and used to be heavily populated by law students. Renting a house in Norman with 1 or 2 other law students is another popular route.

If you like golf, the links is legit. I think it's around $650 or so for a 1br. Free golf on the worst golf course in Norman (which is better than no free golf, haha). It's also new--built in the last 2 years or so.

Judging from the activity of this thread, I'm guessing OU is going to have an incoming class size of about 12. Sound right?

Also, which school are you leaning towards, PC?
