nothing! I grow weary these shenanigans, IUB (looking at you too, UNC). At this point I have given up all hope on receiving any kind of merit aid from IUB, which pretty much eliminate them from consideration. Does anyone have information on their money situation over there? Seems like they have been handing out full rides recently, if I recall correctly - I just hope there is something left at this point.


When I spoke to Dani at spring law day about how tough a time I was having making a decision she gave me an extension and I remember her saying something that led me to believe that they really need to wait to hear from the Apr 1-9 deadline to see who withdraws especially in concerns with schollies. At the event I think there were AT LEAST 50 people with large schollies as there were 50 of us staying in the HGI and I met several others who had huge schollies that were not staying in the HGI. Annnnd on a side note...in case you were worried that their lack of a seat deposit would cause people to game them and say they were coming but not actually go....I heard from numerous people that they did not think they could say yes to the first deadline unless they were fully committed as giving your word is a lot more meaningful than 200-700 dollars. So expect things to open up around apr. 15 I personally don't think you have much of a chance of hearing anything before then....


This is good news :) The past three months have gone slower than ever though, patience is a virtue. This is way worse than the LSAT's damnit.

On second thought, I got an additional email from someone inviting me to summer start. I more or less just ignored it, though.

I have been complete since 1/27 and have yet to receive a decision. I called the admissions office today and they told me that they are swamped with applications this year and that I should have a decision sent to me in 2-3 weeks. She also said that I should write a LOCI, I feel this is completely backwards since they haven't even started reviewing my application. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

How far away from Bloomington are you? I'm two days away via snail mail. Ahhh, they're killing me. My last holdout!

I apologize for the melodrama. :P

PS: Nothing in the mail for me today, either.

I'm a WL for IU and wondering if anyone might have a gauge as to how many admits are withdrawing in next coupla weeks if they haven't already done so. I just visited IU this week and fell in love with the school (it just...fits for me).

Any inklings? I'm dying to get in now :/

Is this April Fools, or is this for real?

When did you get the note? Who sent it? Dani?

I just got an acceptance email! Still kind of shocked because I didn't think my numbers were good enough.

I'm still waiting to hear, the only school that I haven't heard a thing from. Visiting Loyola LA next week and waiting to see if I am getting any money from Kent. Then hopefully I can make a final choice.

Congrats. Now I am checking e-mail compulsively. I expect a ding, but still.

I got the acceptance email today too but no scholarship. If I were awarded money would it be noted in the email or should I still hold out hope? I got 1/2 tuition from Illinois and Minnesota and was hoping for more from IUB.

Same here, nothing about scholarships, but there's something coming via snail mail according to the email.

4/22 is a quick turnaround, but hey, happy to get in. I have a below 25% gpa, so I was a little nervous.

And I wouldn't pull this as an April Fool's joke, that's just cruel!

Good to hear - you didn't end up getting more out of them, did you?
