They posted it yesterday.  In case anybody is trying to decide between a couple of schools, the updated rankings list might help you.  http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/grad/law/search

Choosing the Right Law School / Indiana--Bloomington vs. Ohio State
« on: February 09, 2008, 06:30:04 AM »
I recently read the thread about IU Bloomington vs. Wisconsin and found it very helpful.  However, I also have Ohio State as one of the schools at the top of my list.  Has anybody visited both Bloomington and Ohio State?  Even if not, comments on either institution would be appreciated.  Thanks!

Law School Admissions / Grading Curve Question
« on: February 04, 2008, 03:52:44 PM »
I have read that I need to find out what the grading curve of a school is in order to determine how hard it will be to maintain my scholarship.  However, I don't really know what the grading curve numbers mean.  Is it better to have a school with a 3.3 or a 2.6 (higher is better or lower is better)?  How do I find out what the curve at a school is?  I Googled one of my schools and couldn't find anything.

Choosing the Right Law School / Region
« on: January 16, 2008, 01:58:09 PM »
Does the region you come from in any way affect your acceptance possibilities?  I'm from Arkansas and although I did well at my local university, I have somewhat assumed that some schools might tend to dismiss me because of its lack of prestige.  A friend of mine told me that sometimes schools might need to have a certain quota of students from each area of the country for the diversity factor.  Is this true?

Choosing the Right Law School / Anyone with a young family??
« on: January 14, 2008, 11:48:10 AM »
I am a 29 year old mother of 2 small children.  My husband is a software engineer and has insisted that I can go wherever I am accepted; he should be able to find a job anywhere.  I am a little worried about attending a top law school.  My stats are LSAT 166 and GPA 3.91, though I am planning to take the LSAT again in February.  I'm worried about incurring debt and being in areas that might not be so great for children, stuff I wouldn't have given a second thought about my senior year of college.  I applied to Michigan, great school and looks like a good area.  For under the top 20, I've applied to Case Western, Indiana-Bloomington, Wisconsin and Minnesota.  Anybody dealing with a similar situation?  Thoughts? Thanks!

Studying for the LSAT / February LSAT in terms of application deadlines
« on: January 13, 2008, 10:02:46 AM »
I took the LSAT in December and did okay.  I am taking it again in February.  I am certain that most of the schools to which I applied will accept the February score, but what about the ones whose deadline is either Feb. 1 or Feb. 15?  The results probably won't come until around Feb. 20, but some don't send out acceptance letters or scholarship notices until March.  Does anyone know the standard policy for this situation?
