Aside from the refusal to re-negotiate, LSU has really impressed me this cycle. From my communication with their office, to the events they have set-up for admitted students, everything has been first-class. Cocktail reception at the chancellor's home and dinner at the contemporary arts museum is a VERY welcoming and nice touch which, at least to me, speaks volumes about the community they have there... Or perhaps they are just really good recruiters. :lol:

Looking forward to ASW on Friday/Sat. Any of you guys going? If so, where are you staying?


I'll be there. I'm staying at the Staybridge.

I tried and was immediately shot down, as were all the other people I talked to.
They either aren't negotiating right now or aren't negotiating at all, it seems like.


I posted this before, but I also was shot down immediately. However, my stats are pretty mehhh so that also had a bit to do with it I would assume.


My stats were above their medians, so I was surprised they wouldn't negotiate with me at all.

RE: Window Decal - there's some pretty neat ones on Amazon, but no "LSU Law" ones. They're all ugly.

I am so bummed that I will be missing the ASW. I was there last weekend, and the weekend before, and had a great time! Look forward to this fall boys and girls!

Good choice. I did not do my research. Coming from a non-gambling state(Texas), I was unaware of this option.

I created a thread in the Class of 2017 section of the forum for LSU. If you're already attending come join in.

I was at ASW, which just concluded not too long ago. LSU was impressive. They did a good job putting everything together.

Generalities aside, the one thing I took away was the sense of community. School spirit is obviously strong, and they really seem to place an emphasis on fostering a strong community. They are also very proud of their job statistics, and rightfully so.

Given my other offers, and LSU's refusal to negotiate scholarship money, it's unlikely I'll attend in the Fall. But I'd have no reservations about going here if you want to practice in the area. I've visited a few schools and I can say with some degree of certainty that LSU seems to be about as fun a place to go to law school as you'll find.

Hope this is a helpful glimpse for some of you. Best of luck!

^ They sent me info about declaring residency and said it was "extremely difficult," so... there's that.

Withdrew today so there's 90k dollars back in the "pot". Good luck to everyone still waiting to hear back about admissions, or waiting on scholarship info/increases.

Does anyone still post here? To all those who have gotten in, can anyone tell me the stats for someone who got in that was below their medians? How difficult is it to get accepted if you are? Thanks!
