Seems like you guys that have been waiting for a really long time are big reverse-splitters. OSU made big reverse-splitters (like 3.9/160ish) who applied early (like Oct/Nov) wait until late January/February for a decision. I know one with a 3.95/161 who was informed this way, but they had a 161, which OSU probably wants to be its 25th percentile. It seems you guys are all 160 and lower, which is unfortunate.

If I had to guess, I would say you guys got waitlisted. No news is not good news this late in the cycle.

It is the law school's spring break. They haven't been in the office all week (I know because I have called twice a day to ask a question and no one picked up)

Having a median LSAT is much bigger deal than having an above-median GPA.

Received at 3:52 pm today (pretty close on my guess):

Thank you for your interest in the Moritz Merit Scholarship. This e-mail is to update you on the status of notification of Moritz Semifinalists.

Due to Dean Northern's illness, notification of semifinalists will occur Monday, March 29th. You will be notified either way of the decision.

We appreciate your patience in this matter and thank you for your continued interest in the Moritz College of Law.

Sincerely,

Scott Bryant
Admissions Counselor & Staff Assistant

3.3/163, 164 feb. ...according to LSN, I shouldn't still be waiting.

You should be if the class is full, which it looks like it is based on this.

It seems like a lot of schools are having this problem. Lots of qualified applicants, but no seats left. Stick it out, even if you get wait listed, wait till after the seat deposit deadline and I'm sure there will be openings this year. I have a feeling people are applying all over the place!

What is the deal with the Admissions office. I know they were on spring break last week but they still are not answering phones. I have been trying all morning...

I just got the waitlist email (160, 3.85) and I was happy to even get that. I paid my deposit at Penn State but if I get an offer of admissions from Ohio before my second Penn State deposit is due, I might consider it.

+1 I also was admitted last week and though I am not expecting merit aid it would be quite nice to hear something on the financial front this week
