Did you ever receive an automated email from the law school about residency? They said I would get an automated message in 7-10 days and its been like 2.5 weeks. I can't decide if I should be worried are not. It makes me think they are rejecting me regardless. Dang it!

My residency status notification came snail mail, but I filled out the residency questionaire right away.

I know my residency status has changed with the university, I just hope the law school has the update. They should---since the res. office notifies them when they notify me, but I never received the automated message about it. I am too anal. It's probably fine, right?

If they said they'd get back to you in 10 days and it's been more than 10 business days, I don't see a problem in checking in.

LSN freaks me out. No one with my numbers got in last year that wasn't a URM, but according to LSN 95 of 445 (these are approximate, i can't remember the exact numbers from LSAC) people with my numbers were admitted.

Come on graduate degrees!

If I end up at Alabama, or GMU, or UF, or wherever else, I will live.

Word.  I am in your grade/LSAT bracket on LSAC, and LSN data from last year gives me nightmares.  I'm still keeping my fingers crossed.

Arizona.

Must reside in Arizona for 12 months, take active steps to show that you intend to stay in Arizona (license, car title, voter registration, tax returns in Arizona). Suggestion: work your 1L summer in the state.

CA after one year

Are you sure about that? I went undergrad at ucla and have friends in their 5th and 4th years out of state still paying out of their ass.

Parents are probably claiming them as dependents out of state.  Also, you pay state income tax in the state that you maintain domicile (not necessarily the state you go to school in).

For the 0Ls worried about this sort of thing, take comfort in the fact that statistically you only have about a 20%-25% chance of making OCI GPA cutoffs. So for every 4 of 5 reading this thread, it will be a pretty moot issue. 


Huh?  The point is that at these schools, there are no GPA cutoffs.  F

orgive me if I'm missing something.

No GPA cutoffs for interviews, but employers still see/know your GPA from the resume or transcripts at they time you you interview.  Correct?

What are your career aspirations and what is your compelling reason for wanting to stay in MN? Really makes a difference, the former especially when analyzing the money aspect. 

I can understand going to U Minn over Berkeley and Georgetown (especially since it sounds like you have personal reasons for wanting to stay in MN).  This, of course, is assuming that MN is significantly cheaper than Berkeley or Georgetown. A MN firm will probably hire deeper into the class at Chicago and Northwestern, and I wouldn't be surprised if the MN BigLaw firms all do OCI at those schools (considering the proximity).  You should check out their list of OCI.  Chicago is within a day drive from Minneapolis. How pressing is your desire to stay in MN during law school (a non-moving significant other? sick family member? what?).  You would be close enough if you had an emergency, and you could easily find summer employment in Minneapolis and stay with family to save money if that's your reason for wanting to work in MN.
