Where do you want to practice? That answer will go a long way towards deciding the school...

DC or Chicago, public interest (ADA or public defender work probably or international law)


Moritz has this program in DC http://moritzlaw.osu.edu/programs/washington/index.php. Seems like it'd be a great place to make some connections your first summer, perhaps pave some inroads for your second summer.

Anyone else complete and under review since 12/30? I feel like I should've heard back from them by now, but maybe its because I am out of state, so it takes longer?

I've been complete and under review since mid-Jan. Still waiting... According to them, your residency has absolutely no effect on your chances of admission.

Sameeee here...but I think that's a pretty universal case at this point, I haven't seen a whole lot of people who've received decisions since going under review around 12/29 (which is when I went Complete, UR). It says on the status checker website it would take 6-8 weeks, with next week being week 8, so here's to hearing soon!

That's really weird... I applied on Jan 16, complete on Jan 26, and decision rendered on Feb 8... On about Feb 14 I got a scholarship via email. 164/3.66 out-of-state. I'm thinking they might be big on soft skills? I took the LSAT twice, first time I got 154, but I also have a unique story/life experience. I'm sure you guys will hear soon, or I would go ahead and email to check on the status and see if there is anything missing from your application packet.

I surely hope they just missed something! I really love tOSU, and my stats are 164/3.4 with a strong upward grade trend. If you don't mind me asking, was the scholarship pretty substantial??? Thanks!

Well, the scholarship is for 12k a year with a 2.5 GPA requirement. For the first year it isn't quite enough, unfortunately (I'm poooor), but if I were in-state, it would be very awesome. I'm upset that I don't think I'll be able to make up the 5k left over after student loans :( I'd LOVE to go to OSU, but private lenders would not look as favorably on my credit score as OSU did on my LSAT score, lol.

Tough to say... I'm pretty sure Iowa places better through the midwest (including Chicago), but $$ is kinda important. It's still entirely possible that you'll receive $$ from Iowa, so here's hoping your decision gets a little easier!

Good luck!

Oh dude, i would not say that at all. I hear Iowa is a slaughterfest for chicago (same with wustl nd, etc), atleast OSU places well in Cleveland, Columbus (duh), and Cincy. While you might not get Chicago, atleast you have a "home" market to fall back on.....that is, unless you like the idea of practicing corn law in des moines

Does anyone else have problems reaching admission office? I called many times and left voice messages too, but no one picked it up/returned my call. It seems like that they don't reply email in timely fashion as well......

Fair enough. Being from Ohio, I'm always gonna have a soft spot for OSU, but they need to offer me $$$ before I can consider them over Iowa (which offered me a full ride).

Yea, I've sent them an LOCI in an e-mail no response, then a follow up e-mail no response and then a call which I also left a message and no response lol. Not sure what's going on...
