Good Luck.

There are a few 3L/2L's on the forum. Ask any questions you want and we can try to answer them.

Accepted. Their employment numbers seem weird. 70% on LST but mean is only 70k

1) I'm pretty sure that's the median.
2) It's Iowa. A lot of the grads work in small towns.

1) LST uses mean not median
2) That makes sense

Outgoing 3L... I'm surprised last year's class made 65-70k to be honest given what the first hand accounts are. Take that statistic with a grain of salt. Fire away questions if you want.

I was accepted on 11/20 or maybe 11/19. Status checker was definitely updated to "Accepted" before I got the acceptance email. I have received an acceptance letter with instructions but no packet yet.

Got an acceptance letter in the mail yesterday with a note from the dean about my personal statement.

No scholarship info yet, hopefully I get some $$$ though!
