Re: University of Cincinnati! Woot.

Postby frankjones » Mon Feb 01, 2010 10:59 am

I'm wondering when I could expect a scholarship offer if I get one. I received an email telling me I was in about a week and a half ago. Then this weekend I got an actual offer of admission in the snail mail. As of yet, however, no scholarship. Does anyone know if scholarship offers would have come along with the initial snail-mail offer of admission? Or would that be a second snail-mailing? Thanks.

Thank you. Do you know how much after the first snail mailing they typically come?

Dear Cincinnati: Thanks for the e-mail about living in Kentucky to get residency. However, you have yet to accept me. In the future don't make me get my hopes up. <3, keg411

I got an email from the Assistant Dean asking for an updated transcript. Luckily I just sent one to the LSAC today.

yeah I got fooled by the admissions eNews e-mail looking for clues about my acceptance... I went complete on 1/20.

Their hospitality was unmatched. The students were very nice and I never felt pressured to attend there. The staff was very nice, and I got to talk to Dean Watson for a while, and he was incredibly nice!

hahah, I got in late the night before, and I had to leave Cincinnati after my visit. I ate at the Spicy Pickle.

I really wanted to eat Skyline Chili, or Montgomery Inn, though

^^ +1. Waitlisted via snail mail yesterday. This is surprising because I live in Ohio and have gotten into some T1's already. Oh well...

I took a look at LSN #'s and my being waitlisted doesn't look surprising anymore. Looks like you need about 166 to be accepted with a low GPA below 3.2.

Clifton Gaslight District (someone mentioned Ludlow Ave.), Hyde Park, Mt. Adams, & Mt. Lookout on the Ohio side.

For the graduate metro-ers looking in Kentucky, look at Gettysburg Square in Fort Thomas. There are several law students who live there. About a 15 min. drive to campus.

1L here. PM if you have any questions.
