They don't have a waitlist, so I would assume most of you that haven't heard are sort of a de facto waitlist or were unofficially deferred. They told me that while there isn't a second deposit, there is some sort of "intent to enroll" thing they will send out in June. So it's possible they could be waiting until they find out who is and isn't going to attend out of that batch before they make decisions. But if that is the case, then I would guess you wouldn't know until the end of June.

I had three on my UG transcript, although one was a power skating class that I was just holding the spot for a freshman buddy and forgot to drop it (it was one credit so didn't affect my tution at all). I don't think it had any effect on me.

alright. I'm sending another letter to wisconsin and let them know 
Wisconsin is my first choice. ;D

oh, and does anyone know whether Wisconsin prefer in-state applicants
over out-of state? thanks!

I don't think it's a huge advantage or anything, but Mike Hall told me being a Wisconsin resident does work in my favor.

Looking at last year's cycle on LSN, there were a slew of waitlist/deferred decisions in the last week of May. Here's to wishful thinking!

I lived in South Dakota for a year out of school. The two are more or less the same state. Very flat, very boring, very few people, super conservative. Moving there from undergrad at Wisconsin was quite a culture shock and I struggled to adapt socially (although being a reporter with a shift that ended after midnight including ALL Friday nights didn't help). Some people actually DO find that appealing. I did not.

I know nothing about the law school itself, though.




really?  i had more fun in sioux falls than a lot of more 'hip' places i've lived....


maybe sf is an anomoly for the state of south dakota.

sturgis rocks, too, but only once a year

Sioux Falls is beyond an anomoly for SoDak. I lived in Mitchell, so 70 miles each way was too far to drive (esp. with my work schedule) to do the sorts of things a single guy in his mid-20s would've liked to do. I didn't mind SF the couple times I was there, and Deadwood was a blast but it was five hours away.

I'm a sports editor for a company of small newspapers. I've been in the industry for four years since graduating from UG in spring 2002. My salary is barely liveable so that's not much of an issue for me. I'll probably be able to live better off the finaid money than my salary. Last day will be July 20 or 21.

I am going to end up at either a very high T2 or a T1, but I strongly considered a T4 (albeit with a very nice scholarship) and would've felt no regret quitting to attend there, either.

I'm down to two choices. In at one with first deposit paid, and deferred at the other. Hoping to find out from the deferred school by the first week of June, but we'll see.

I'm either moving 90 minutes up the road, or else going somewhere that will have a DRASTIC change in climate.

I was supposed to cover/shoot photos at three sporting events today, but Mother Nature decided to intervene and give me the day off. I am pretty bored as well, although I made some pasta and had a bottle of wine with it for lunch. That helps.  ;) Even though I don't post a whole lot on here, I've probably killed at least a couple hours just reading through random posts!
