MN's lack of response to me is really rattling my confidence during this cycle!

Congrats to everyone who got accepted today!

One question- did you guys notice any change on your status checker before you got a decision?

No - status checker didn't change prior to the call. Shortly after, however, it changed to show the admittance.

Status date change, but no call and nothing beyond "in review."

Just got the call! In! I thought it wasn't gonna happen because of pending LSAT score, but it just came through.

In via phone call today.

PM for stats if you want, but I am a splitter (below 25th GPA/above 75th lsat). I'm dying to get scholarship information, but he said it could take a week for the packet to get to me. The only timeline posted so looks like an 11/22 admit and 11/29 packet! That's too long, UMN :)

Also in via phone call today. I missed the call but a message was left saying a packet would be coming in the mail.

Congrats to others.

Hey! so according to you, will an applicant with 3.3 GPA and a 168 LSAT and another applicant with a 3.8 GPA and a 163 Lsat be looked at as equals? I would really appreciate your input, thanks!.

I wouldn't necessarily say equals, I think it would really depend on the situation. A high LSAT is rarer than a high GPA though.

Above LSAT median > Above GPA median

but

above a 25th & above a median is a good position to be in

a 163/3.8 has a good shot

Does anyone have any opinions on whether someone with 169/3.58 and a specific interest in one of their concentrations/clinics (and 2 years work experience in that field) has a reasonable shot at a decent amount of scholarship money this late in the game?

youll probably get like 100k
