I've decided.  MSU-COL here I come!!!  (or should I say "stay")  I did both undergrad and some grad coursework here too...I guess you could say I'm a "Lifer"!!!

Being here for 11 years now, I pretty much know everything about the area (including where to find secret parking spots!!!).  So feel free to ask away (not about the parking spots though!!!)   :P

And MSU hoops is gonna be killer this year!!! Final Four, Baby!  I've already got my NCAA Regional tickets at Ford Field!  :)


Congrats Buttertart!!  I thought I was gonna be a lifer at WSU, having done my undergrad and grad degree but I think in the long run MSU will be a better degree!!  Anyway, you might have to spill it about the parking spots now.

I wouldn't put too much stock in the salary differential.  Since they are only reporting 48% You are probably right to knock that down a bit.  Also, I think the number is also pushed up significantly because from what I heard anyone who wants to work in Cincinnati as a lawyer better be T14 or from Cincinnati and even then it might be easier if you are from Cincinnati and did well!  I heard this both at Cincinnati as well as Toledo.  Therefore, assume some of the high paying jobs are for those who stay in the area and if you are not interested, then it might not be that big of a difference.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Dear LSAT

Dear LSAT,

Looking forward to our June 11th date.  I don't know why you insist on me not bringing a mechanical pencil or timer.  And what's with the ziplock bag?  It's not like I carry a knife when I go on dates!  I hope I don't get nervous getting all your questions.  I've been reviewing what you'be been asking your prior dates. But now, you throw your dates a curve ball with the new RC section!

BTW - Why do you only go on dates 4 times a year??? Oh well, I guess when you are in high demand, you don't want to put yourself out there too much.

Anyway, see you next month and if you don't like me, I guess I'll see you again in Sept or Dec.

See you soon!
OCLawGirl ;)

P.S:  If I don't like you after the date, I may have to cancel.  Don't be offended - I just think I may need more time to impress you.

If I can add OCLawGirl,

Why do I have to go through a service to date you LSAT?  Furthermore, I find it a bit disqusting that I have to send you my transcripts and letters of recommendation.  I guess worse of all, you actually rank me by how many of those questions I get wrong!!  Don't get me wrong, I know you are well worth it because the USNEWS LOVES YOU!!!

Why do people with less than 100 posts share news of their school acceptances?  STFU, nobody knows you, and nobody cares.

P.S. - Before somebody says they don't know me, I should remind you all I use a different name on this site when I'm not being a jerk.

Hey Killself, Killself!!!

Great job Roman!!  Like I said, it really is a great school!!  Good luck weighing out your options!!  If you got funding, you will probably hear that within a week.  After receiving my acceptance about a week and a half ago, I recieved 27K two days later.  Good luck with your decision!!

So what effect do you guys think this is going to have on their entering class this fall?

I'm really leaning towards attending (because of the $$ offer, and because the only other acceptance I have is a T4...), though I was pretty disgusted by their admissions process. 

Do you think they've turned off many of their better applicants?

I know personally I would have been attending if they didn't get to me at such a late point.  I had not only sent in seat deposits, but had to make living arrangements which required a contract.  I think my decision would have been different and there is a very good chance I would be going to Case if they had only responded earlier!!  Either way, I think it is an amazing school and if I wasn't planning on going into public interest, I would probably turn down the full ride at MSU and head there!! Good luck to those of you holding out, I will be withdrawing today!

I know Owen Hall is an option, but the rooms are very small and you don't even have a full bed.  I would probably try something off campus.  Check out the MSU site and you might consider taking on a roommate to save some money! I am going to Okemos, which is about a 10 minute drive from the LS. Good luck.
