how about Heteroskedasticity

Juxtalaw, did you receive scholarship notification through a phone call or in the mail? Hopefully, I'll hear from the OSU tom. (Feb 6)

i got a phone call from the assitant director of admissions. He said that they call all their admits (Juxtalaw being the inevitable exception to the rule), but not their rejects or deferrals. As for scholarship info, i got it about a week after the phone call in the mail. Also, the status checker is messed up. I got my admit phone call more than a day before my staus went to "decision"

The best place to look is the Ohio Board of Regents guidelines. They tried to make me a non-resident because i have been in DC for (what will be) about a year. All I had to do to get that amended is tell them in writing that i have been living in Ohio for at least 12 months and that i will not be gone for more than a year. I sent the letter and it was changed without any questions.

heres the link to the residency guidelines along with what they say about residency...

In general, a student must demonstrate that they meet all of the following criteria:
(1)The student is expected to live in Ohio for a full, 12 consecutive months immediately preceding the quarter for which they are applying for residency. The expectation is that the student should not be absent from the state any longer than breaks between quarters and 3 weeks during the summer.
(2)The student should demonstrate their intent to become an Ohio resident by transferring any items of registration to Ohio such as a driver's license, automobile registration, and voter registration (if applicable).
(3)The student must demonstrate that during the 12-month period while establishing residency, that they have had sufficient income to meet all expenses without the need of money from outside the State of Ohio. Documentation of income sources used during the 12-month period is required.

In submitting the Request for Resident Classification, what are some examples of acceptable income documentation?
The following are examples of some of the income documents you may submit with your Request for Resident Classification: W-2 forms, pay stubs, financial aid award letters, notarized letters of support from Ohio residents, bank statements, and statements showing receipt of government benefits.

So, i guess your rents can help you out as long as you are getting finacial aid (loans, scholarships) from someone in Ohio

divotjr  -- Go to OSU over Akron and take the $30K hit.  In Columbus, Akron does NOT perhaps have the reputation that it appears to in NE Ohio, which means that it has less than a 100-mile radius of "good rep" to go around.  If you ever want to move out of NE Ohio, OSU will give you much better options.  And if you ever want to move out of Ohio, OSU would definitely be a better option.

Of course if you are absolutely 100% positive you will not ever budge out of NE Ohio, then go to Akron.  But I'd suggest keeping your options open if you have the opportunity...

Thats what I was thinking, but its always nice to hear confirmation from someone (especially someone smarter than myself).

the residency requirement is the easiest one in the country as far as i know. As long as you have been living at an Ohio address for 12 months the school will consider you a resident. So for 2L and 3L you will, for sure, be considered a resident.

Thanks for the information. I am writing my essay as well. I know i dont have the most impressive numbers, but my soft factors are good and i figured with the amount of money at stake why not try. Do you want to exchange essays when we are done for proofreading and review?

good luck, Sanjeev should be calling you any minute now (if you are accepted).

I moved here in August (decided to live in Bethesda, MD instead of the district). I would say to look in NW (near UDC or AU), that is my favorite part of town. As for how to search for a place, I found the best resource to be craigslist.

Is anyone that is planning on attending The Ohio State University also applying for the Moritz Scholarship?

Also, does anyone have information on past recipients(ie. lsat, gpa, ec's)?
