Thanks zermatt. I'm doing the same. I'm applying today. I know its way late but I guess they haven't sent out even one acceptance yet, so hopefully I'll still have a shot. (3.28, 161).

you definitely have a shot with those stats. I wrote a paragraph. I talked about Nike being there and sports law, about wanting to work on the coast, the great town atmosphere the university has helped to create, and, of course, their great football team.

I talked about how since I grew up here that I would like to be able to help out the community in which I grew up in and care so much about. Oh, and I just wrote a paragraph

I just wrote a paragraph, as well (or however much space was allotted). Does anyone know how Oregon treats "reverse" splitters? I'm a 157/3.9 combo. On LSN, people with similar scores seemed to do okay.

Best of luck to everyone who applied!

I'd say you should be moderately confident. 157 is the 25% and 3.9 is A LOT higher than their 75%.


Any insight on how a school usually treats somebody who is median, median? Is that a good chance, or is that a 50/50 type thing?

I wish we could put songs in these threads, because I would put Tom Petty's "The Waiting". "The waiting is the hardest part." Though it could turn into myspace and be really slow when it first allowed people to put songs on their page, and you would have 20 people per page putting songs in a thread. At least by this time next month someone in this thread will have heard back!

157/3.82 decent softs, 2k renewable. Sent app in 10/20, went complete 11/02.

I am pretty surprised myself to be the first to post.

Edit: They must have sent out a large batch and I just happen to have an early mail service. Most mornings its here by 9:30, very nice for this process.

I applied around the same time. Are they historically stingy with the scholarship money? 2K doesn't seem like all that much.

I don't really know, for instate its already very cheap for me as I am an Oregon resident. 2k is fairly reflective of my numbers though. Eugene isn't a place I would want to practice in, i would be interested in seeing how many people find employment outside of Eugene.

Edit: The TLS University of Oregon profile says that the median financial award is 7k, so yea pretty stingy.

Sent my app when they first became available and went complete not long after. I live just a couple of hours North and I went to UO for undergrad so hopefully I'll hear back soon. My mail hasn't shown up yet today but I'm crossing my fingers I'm in the first batch.

oregon argues that since the tuition is already cheap, they dont need to give out a lot. if you look at lsn, most scholarships are 2k or 5k

Even though tuition is cheap, most scholarships they give out don't make it competitive with other schools. They should try to raise more money and get higher quality students, which would increase their rankings. Not that I'm complaining right now. Get higher quality students after my 1L year. Maybe it's harder for them to raise money, or they want as many students as possible to get some scholarship money

Received the admissions packet today. $10k renewable scholarship. I'm excited about the possibility of staying in Oregon, but still waiting on a couple more decisions.

If I got the same offer, I would probably attend. If they hit me with this 2k renewable bullshit, I'll go somewhere else.

So you would only be paying $13,000 for tuition, as an in-stater?
