It's high on my list but it's not THE school I'm waiting to hear back from.

It's high on my list, but I can probably be swayed by more money from another school.

Meh... I applied because it's a T14 - we'll see how my cycle goes.

Really just plan on using it for scholarship negotiation purposes.

Still feel really unsure. I'll probably visit or go to ASW to get a better feel for the school/location.

To be fair though, essentially none of the T13s (minus dook) are in warm locations lol.


and berk and S


Seriously. On paper, Berkeley is not right for me. They don't have a lot of focus in what I want to do, and they're the only school that hasn't offered me a scholarship. But, I'm still so hung up on it because of the weather, lifestyle, and location.


Definitely try not to make a decision based on these things unless you DEFINITELY want to be in Cali post-grad, in which case that might make sense; I honestly never really looked into Berkeley's placement because I can't live in Cali right now. But just keep in mind that many of the T13s grant you some flexibility in where you end up after graduating because they, generally (or maybe completely), have national reach, so you're not doomed to staying in a location just because you go to school there if you go to a T13! I definitely get it though. An urge to have some warm weather had me thinking about going to law school in Florida :lol:


I thought u were goin to SC?


:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: No, that's Mr_Chukes. We have similar avis rn so I understand the confusion.

You're alone in that one lol. My dream location is Miami (while I'm in my 20s, at least). But their school is not good and apparently has gotten worse since they dropped in the rankings something crazy lol

Also, just in case anyone in here is committed but not in the "Class of" thread(s):

Hey Summer Starters! There's a FB group for us:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1700760123558476/

You have to have your umich email before you can join (so you have to have deposited). I ended up having to list it as my secondary email on FB before it would let me join; it wouldn't ask me to just insert it on its own.

It only has six members right now, which is hella sad. So plz join!

Also, I'm a mod in that group so if you have any issues joining, just let me know and I'll try to finesse lol

I was going from nothing to something, but she told me about 3 business days. It took around a week though because the fin aid dean was traveling so I had to wait until she was back in the office.

I'm still waiting! Someone above said they called the Admissions Office and they said all decisions would be out by April 30...



But they must come out with some more decisions before then, one would think...or hope? maybe they are waiting to see the number of withdraws on 4/15?


Is 4/15 the deposit deadline?


Per the admitted students website, 4/30 is the first deposit deadline for Fall starters (and only one for Summer starters)


It is 4/30, but other schools i think are 4/15? When is the one for summer start?


See above


ah you're right, my bad. seriously, going nuts over here.

Looks like, according to LSN, there may be a rejection wave going out today. Check those status checkers and good luck everyone!

Hi All, is anyone looking for summer housing in Ann Arbor? I signed a lease and got last minute scholarship information from Berkeley and so will not be attending. The contract is for a single room, $400 room in a coop literally 2 blocks from the law school. Email me asap if you're interested!
