Law School Admissions / Re: In-State advantage
« on: December 10, 2007, 02:53:54 PM »
I would disagree. Michigan has in-state quotas, just like any other state school -- it makes an agreement on a year to year basis with the Michigan gov about what percentage they take. While the % is usually relatively low compared to other state schools (20-25%) I would assume it makes in-state admission at least a little easier.

It's also interesting to note that Michigan's tuition difference between in-state and out-of-state is only $1000 or so. So the advantage is in admission more than enrollment as fair as I can tell.

Law School Admissions / Send update to schools?
« on: December 07, 2007, 11:59:13 AM »
I just found out I recieved a prestigous fellowship for my public service committment(that I would complete before I head to law school). I am in at Michigan and GULC but still pending at a lot of T14 schools. I am wondering if it would be smart to send an "update" letter to schools to let them know about the fellowship as well as a few other things like being on the host committee for my UG benefit ball. Thoughts?

Law School Admissions / Re: Decision at Cornell?

I called the office and they said "We like to get EA people out of the way before we move on to completing RD files."

Doesn't mean you shouldn't call, but it seems like it's fine to still be at applied...
