Jerome, did I see you lurking around the Iowa and/or MN thread/s?

SOBs! I was WL'ed at MN and I was pretty dead-set on going there (even to the point of re-taking and re-applying) but I deposited at Iowa and am pretty happy about it. That said, I'm staying on MN's WL unless I decide on Iowa or Wisc. for sure...

Point is, I still don't know where i'm going... :D

I also deposited at Iowa. Unless Wisconsin throws me some money (which I think has the same likelihood as me winning the lotto) I'll be at Iowa...probably. The acceptance definitely throws a wrench into the equation.

We'll see though. I liked Iowa a lot, it is ranked well (for whatever that is worth), places well, is near my fiance (relatively speaking) and seems to be a genuinely cool place. But I am a city guy. But Iowa will be cheaper, barring great aid from Wisconsin. AGH!

Not unless you spend a year in Wisconsin prior to taking any classes. Yeah, it sucks.

Barring great news on the financial front (come on Powerball!), I'll withdraw.

Tvink, we seem to have similar numbers. What are your numbers, lawcycle? From what I saw people with a high LSAT score got in today.

For what it's worth, my numbers are 3.4/163. Sent in LOCI and second LOR. Strong(ish) softs.

In off the WL today, sent a LOCI two weeks ago. Elated. I couldn't justify spending money on Penn State & DePaul, but I definitely can for Wisconsin.

I have a feeling UW sees a 163/164 median as possible and is going for it with the WL. I could be way off, but judging on LSN, that seems to be a legitimate possibility.

ITT: We see the results of Wisconsin Law adcoms seeing the benefits of median whoring (manifested just a few days ago via the US News rankings) and tacitly admitting that it's a good idea for the school.

I wish I could give one of you my 164 to get off the WL. Each time im about to start writing my LOCI, i hesitate because im so tired of enduring winters in the cold midwest. I love the wisconsin, but hate winter, so I dont know if the below average QOL for me is worth it..... The warm winters of NC are calling my name :|
