They are not negotiating scholarships this year (I came to them with far higher offers at higher ranked schools and they still didn't negotiate). Hoping someone on the waitlist gets my spot!

If anyone else has any questions about OSU, I'm still available to answer them!



Do you know if everyone will be able to pay in-state tuition after 1L?
If that's true, it will be a super discount .


Should be true for most people. Getting in-state status in Ohio is easy compared to other states. Sadly, even with in-state status OSU would've been more expensive for me than other higher-ranked schools

Anyone who has committed looking for a place to live/a roommate? I have found a few nice places near campus, that are a little more expensive, but would be cheaper and more reasonable with a roommate. PM me if interested!

Accepted with a scholarship that wouldn't warrant passing up other offers. So, I withdrew my application today, good luck to those waiting on a decision today!

Apologies if this has been asked before, but anyone know when residency status needs to be submitted by? I don't live in state currently but grew up & graduated high school in Ohio, so I think I would qualify for in state. I'm trying to figure out if the odds for a good scholarship are higher if they know I'm going to be considered a resident or not...

Hey all, for ease of use, I'm just submitting a question I put on reddit as I did there. Just a question about accepting a scholarship / putting a deposit down. Any insight or advice would be much appreciated!

BACKGROUND:
I applied to 10 schools across a variety of tiers to try and get the best possible offers. So far, I've heard back from 7 of them, all have admitted and offered some kind of scholarship. But the big shock was when my home-state school Ohio State offered a full-tuition scholarship.
I've yet to hear from my three reach schools of Vandy, Duke and Michigan. MyLSN seems to show a decent chance at those three, but any other info y'all have on that wouldn't go amiss.

I called those three admissions offices and they said that putting a deposit down at another school wouldn't negatively impact my application there and that I can always submit a LOCI explaining said deposit for their admissions officers to consider.

But my concern is regarding putting the deposit down / scholarship with OSU, the deadline for that is April 1. I.E. whether that would obligate me to withdraw / not accept any other offers? I'm hesitant to email/call OSU's admissions office about that, lest I imperil my best current offer.

My gut is to put down the April 1 desposit, accept the scholarship and wait to hear back from those three and just eat the $ if I end up heading elsewhere. Thoughts?

QUESTION:
Should I put down my OSU deposit/accept the scholarship and wait for to hear back from the other three?

RESULTS:
Ohio State- In, Full Scholarship (4/1 deadline)
Waiting on responses from Michigan, Vanderbilt, and Duke.

STATS:
GPA: 3.53 LSAT: 168, non-URM, 5-year gap between graduation and law school (professional work as journalist) Goal: Depending, but potentially BigLaw for financial security for a few years, followed by legal investigative work in government, private sector, etc.

Thanks very much for any and all insight, advice, and/or opinions you can give me on this!

I'd first send OSU an email to see if you can get an extension on the deposit deadline

Got a hold of OSU admissions and they said no withdrawals required, so thanks for the advice.

I was waitlisted for OSU, does anyone know how their scholarships for WL, then accepted students work? I'm in state, but without a scholarship it would cost way more than a school I've already been accepted to with a similar ranking that's out of state for me. Trying to decide if it's worth waiting it out or if I should just deposit at the other school.

I have a friend who was accepted in June of our admissions cycle with numbers at or below the 25th for both LSAT and GPA. He was in state and still received $7k a year in scholarship. I suspect if you're below both medians you can expect a similar offer, it might be a little higher now because tuition is higher.

Thanks for the info! I am >75 % LSAT, <25% GPA so hopefully my LSAT score will get me some more money if I'm accepted.

Still waiting to hear back as well. Getting a little impatient. Anyone have any thoughts/insights into their waitlist at this point?

I actually gave them a call yesterday and they told me their Assistant Dean just got back from vacation and they haven't really decided if they're gonna be taking people off the waitlist yet? Not too much new information really

Got an update on their waitlist! Apparently they don't really anticipate taking anyone off the waitlist at this point, but if they do, just be ready to make a decision quickly
