I have created a discussion board for the Class of 2009.  Many of the topics are hidden until you register.  If you have suggestions for new topics let me know!

I have just received an acceptance notification for the class of 2009 and was wondering if anyone out there would like to compare notes on the school.

Is there anyone else out there who has been accepted to "the U" Law School class of 2009?

Indiana - Indianapolis / Letter of Acceptance
« on: December 03, 2005, 11:36:25 AM »
I just received a letter accepting me into IU-Indy's full time day division.  Can anyone give me any insights into IU?  Specifically school atmosphere, professor attitude, grading, etc.

Any information that you can provide would be most beneficial.

Thank you in advance.

Ave Maria / Offer for Fall 2006

I have received a letter of acceptance for class starting Fall 2006.

Is there any insight that anyone can give me to the school that has not aleady been outlined on this board?

Also is there any truth to the rumor that the school will be moving ~2008?

Any detail you can provide would be most helpful.

Thank you.

Valparaiso / Re: Anyone from Valpo agree with this?

Thanks for the info.  I am still keeping my options open, as you can see I still have several schools yet to hear from.
If you think of anything else, please let me know.

PM me if you want more info... didn't mean to spook ya, just trying to tell you what admissions won't.


- only six major firms participate in OCI

-less than 5% get jobs as a result of OCI

-nearly 20% of 1Ls transfer or drop out

-median gpa for 1Ls 2.8

-you will get a job, but you should see how many shingles are hung out by Valpo grads downtown

-law school is adopting "grade normalizing" this year

-clinic positions 3rd year are...drawn from a hat!  (if you want to work in the juvenile clinic, take a knee like a scene out of "Harry Potter" and see what comes out of the hat).

Valparaiso / Anyone from Valpo agree with this?

This advice was left on two of the Valparaiso acceptance posts at Law School Numbers:

Think Twice
I'm on a full ride...if you don't want to work in NW Indiana, it sucks.  Attrition rate is high (19.7%), grades are low(hard to keep the scholarship) and the career center is poo!  If you just want a J.D. on the cheap it's ok.  Nice staff and faculty, just better have your own resources for work.
                  -- valpo, 1L

Think Twice
Congrats on's nice to be wanted.  However DON'T believe their excuses for the T4 ranking (Tier 4 of U.S. News and World Reports -- lowest ranking available)/1L attrition rates/career prospects (86.2% of graduates employed 9 months after graduation).  You better love NW Indiana (its not terrible) and plan to work here.  No one else has even heard of this place!
                -- valpo, 1L

I added the bold red statements, as they were not part of the origional posting.
