Two people are reporting scholarship offers of $109,272 (full ride) on LSN. Both URM, out of state. At least someone is hearing good news from UW.

As far as I can tell, only if your LSAT is way above the 75th percentile. I have been "Under Review" for 6 weeks and I know other people in this thread who have had that on their checkers for longer...

Waitlisted via email as well. IF money was a non-issue, Wisconsin would be my #1 choice. That being said, I don't think I could justify paying OOS tuition even if I got off the waitlist. I was born and raised a badger fan, but I just don't know how likely I would attend if admitted due to the cost of tuition since I already have some much cheaper offers that I'd be more than happy taking. I'm debating whether I should even write an LOCI...why Wisconsin...why...

I'm sorry to hear that Threepeat, but it looks like you've still got a lot of solid offers on the table. If you don't mind me asking, when did you go complete?

I think I went complete 12/3 and then was under review since 12/4.

Well, my February retake is really going to help me out here. 168 and in-state status should do it. Hopefully.

Honestly if I go I will need a place. I know the area. But I might get a dog

Anyone looking at places to live? I'm in the market, but haven't found anything good yet. Taking suggestions.

(In case it matters: I'm poor, and married with a son...so "location not likely to be puked on" is a plus.)

If you have a son, I'd suggest the Vilas area...but more the southern Vilas area, away from Regent Street (lots of families, and it's where I live now). Also, the east side is great, too. There's plenty of places to check out.
