Should I send in a LOCI although I have not get a decision yet?
Is email the proper way to send in a LOCI or should I send it via snail mail?

Thanks a lot. :D

Dean Pless,

I was wondering if you can shed some light on when applications from close to the deadline might receive decisions. (understanding that it takes about a month to go into eval)


Thanks!

Sending one in by e-mail worked out just fine for me.

+1 .... however, I sent mine by snail mail because I wanted to be more formal and wanted to make sure someone opened it and had to physically put it in my file. Just personal preference. Dean Pless said earlier (and in the waitlist email he sent me) that email or snail mail is fine...whichever you prefer.

Dean P, do you think a waitlisted candidate who retakes the LSAT in June and increases his/her score by 5+ will increase his/her chances in getting off the waitlist? or do you think the June LSAT is too little, too late?

I don't think it could hurt. I would hope to be done with the wait list before that score would report, but I guess we would still have some WL action in July.

So Dean P assuming you reject a candidate in June and he/she ends up increasing his/her LSAT score by 7+ points would you reconsider his/her file or would it be too little, too late?

+1. I think the UIUC Law Faculty/Staff should all be commended for doing a fantastic and very open admissions process. I cannot wait to attend such a great Law School!

Who cares if UIUC went up a couple of spots. The real news is that Illinois is now clearly on top of ND, Minnesota, Iowa and UI. UIUC seems, now more than ever, a solid choice for the Midwest.

Except in biglaw and clerkship placement. Other than that, they're clearly on top of ND. :lol:

I wouldn't be so sure about that. No Juice Williams = at least 2-3 more wins.

UIUC was always a solid choice for the midwest. As for claiming that it is now clearly on top of Minnesota, I feel obliged to point out that until this year Minnesota has been ranked higher than UIUC every single year since 1998. I have no dog in this fight, but your blanket statement is a bit far fetched.

Does anyone know where OCI and salary statistics for the class of 2008 are? I'm having a difficult time finding them in the materials I have and those that are online.
