Got back from break to find seat deposit slip waiting in snail mail...did all the other admits get this? Had no word about funding, so I'm hoping this doesn't = $0!

LSN doesn't have $$$ posted for any admitted students yet, so it looks like scholarship information will be released later.

I got like very vague answers on that when I toured/ went to prospective student thingy (so i'm guessing not great). Also Ohio is having really big budget problems and that has negatively impacted govt hiring which used to take alot of Moritz graduates. This is really making me think twice about attending

Most OSU grads stay in Ohio. It looks like about 64% of the last class they have stats on stayed in Ohio. I'd imagine a good deal of those, if not the majority, stayed in Columbus. Of that class, 13 went to DC, 9 to Illinois, 8 in NY, 6 in CA. So it looks like a few people where able to grab jobs in big markets elsewhere, but not a particularly significant amount.

And to add to that, I know I'm sort of stating the obvious, but you can't discount the self-selection factor. Obviously these people chose to go to law school in Ohio, many of them are from Ohio originally, and many of them want employment in Ohio.

OSU is making me a little crazy. I'm tempted to start plugging in the numbers of everyone admitted on LSN into LSP to see how many have a lower index number than me. I need some kind of reassurance that I'm going to get admitted, or I'm gonna lose my mind. :(

I didn't apply to OSU but I lived in Columbus for the last 2 years after college...it's a really fun town. Congrats to those attending and PM me if you need any advice on what parts of town are good for housing. :)

I got in at OSU. I want to practice in Texas but I'm not sure if Ohio has much reach out here in Texas. Any thoughts?

Ah.

Anecdotal (but anecdotes are still rooted in reality)- I talked to a girl at Moritz who said they have a pretty big base in Houston for whatever reason. Not sure what this means ITE but still something worth investigating. Talk to Kathy Northern. She's really sweet and will most likely know whats up.

O

Ya.

OSU student here so any questions about cbus can be forwarded to me

Well, okay, but the fact of the matter is that Ohio State students get recruited from Ohio firms more than anywhere else. And there are not a whole lot of firms that come from other major markets.

Hi Everyone!

I just submitted my app for OSU on Friday and received my status checker this morning. It already says that my file is complete and under review...is this normal (did this happen to anyone/everyone else?). Also, how long did your decisions usually take? And how did you receive your decision?

Thanks for the info everyone!

i received my december lsat score on the 28th and received my acceptance to osu on wednesday, december 30th. i had already applied with a september score. this was the first school that got back to me, although i was also accepted to wisconsin a few days later. good luck, and hopefully you will hear in the next couple of days.

164/3.4..Anybody in/out with these numbers? I've perused the forum and found that most with a 164 were admitted, I'm just curious as to whether anybody had a GPA close to mine as well. I sent in my app. on the 28th and it was complete by the 29th, should I be hearing back within the next 2 weeks?

BTW, I also attended OSU's prospective student orientation and would be glad to share my initial perception of the school, it's surroundings, and Columbus in general. I'm from out of state and it was my first time in Columbus and I really enjoyed the visit, not to mention the Barrister Club was tits mcghee.

I went under review and received a decision within about five minutes after that.

Yup that is what happened to me. I applied Friday and went complete and under review today. I'm wondering the same thing you are.
