Today I was offered admission at Case Western after being placed on "hold" back in March. Did anyone else get a phone call?

If I had been accepted a month ago I probably would have attended, but now the situation is more difficult. My conflict is whether to attend the University of Cincinnati with a decent scholarship OR Case with no scholarship OR maintain hope that I will get accepted off the OSU waitlist.

The kicker is that my fiancee (we are getting married in July) is getting her masters starting next year and Case is ranked in the top 10 for her field and isn't even ranked at UC :/

bleh.  Just when you think things are settled something else comes up.

Choosing the Right Law School / Decision at OSU
« on: April 18, 2005, 11:13:02 AM »
Well, I went from "referred" to "complete" today, which, from what I have gathered, means I have been waitlisted or rejected. Has anyone else gone to "decision" or "complete" at OSU today?

If I am indeed waitlisted that's just as bad as a rejection since they haven't pulled from their waitlist for several years...

Oh well...

I have already been accepted to the University of Cincinnati, and received a "hold" letter today from Case. I have not heard a lot about UC on this board, and I am wondering why. Both schools are ranked close to each other, while UC is about half the cost and has a higher bar passage rate.

If I eneded up at Case my tuition would probably be around $23k while tuition at UC would be $11k. Not to mention that my fiancee will be attending the same school, so the cost would be doubled.

Does Case offer anything that can make up for this difference in tuition?

I posted this topic on a more appropriate board:

Will they continue to review applications over spring break, or will it be a quiet week? Going through a week without any possibility of hearing from my top choice seems unbearable. :/

Incoming 1Ls / Who makes up the Admissions Committee?

Is there any way you can tell who is on the committee at any given school?

Law School Admissions / Tired of waiting for letters... Predict my chances!

Do some law schools prefer out of state applicants more than in state applicants?

I live in Ohio and The Ohio State University classified me as a "non-resident" because I gave an out of state address on my application (even though I indicated that I was an Ohio resident). Now I have to prove my residency. If I do not prove my residency before they consider my application, could this hurt my chances of being accepted?

Any insight is appreciated.

I am trying to decide which Ohio Law school would be the best to attend. The Ohio State University is ranked the highest, but Case Western Reserve University and University of Cincinnati are not far behind.
I am leaning toward Litigation or International Law as my concentration and I am unsure if Case might have a better program than OSU.  Additionally, would there be any reason to attend Akron (with a full-ride, or close) over Case Western or University of Cincinnati? Akron seems to be decent in Litigation, but it isn't a highly ranked school.
It would not be fair to judge solely on numbers, so I am hoping someone has some insight, local or otherwise, into the strengths of each school.

Employment is probably the most important factor, starting salary is less important, while location doesn't matter.

Thanks for your comments in advance.

Law School Admissions / Addendum question:
« on: February 02, 2005, 04:51:30 PM »
If the application does not provide a place to include an addendum for GPA or LSAT should you just include it anyway?
