Law School Admissions / Re: THE MAIL CALL THREAD

That's true.  My first two choices haven't rejected anyone on LSN.  The choice is completely different for me because I'd really like to go to KU, but I don't really want to spend the money to drive 1000 miles when I haven't heard back from the 2 schools that can compete.   I guess I should be careful though, it may be cheaper to drive out there now before Gas goes to 4 bucks a gallon.

I guess I should be grateful that i've heard back from some of the schools.  I don't think 2 months is a long time, but it seems like the further away the school is, the faster they are to let me know.

I don't understand why it's taking so many schools more than 2 months to get back to me.  It will especially suck if they wait two or three months and then just waitlist or reject me.  Do any of you have an idea about why students on LSN with both lower and higher scores have heard back, when most of their applications were completed after mine?

Have any of you heard back from Gonzaga?   A lot of people on LSN completed their applications a lot later than me and have already heard back.  Some people with higher number, and some with lower numbers.

I haven't talked to them about that, but on their website it says that I need to prove that my purpose for moving to Kansas is something other than Education.  My wife will be working full-time and paying kansas state taxes.  Hopefully that will help.

I guess the true question then is where I want to live after I graduate.  If I want to live in Kansas City after I graduate then KU might give me a lot of opportunities.

That's true.  Akron's litigation program is ranked in the top 20 by US news.  I'm just curious if that makes any difference to employers.
I just spoke with admissions at Akron and they said the renewal rate on their full-tuition scholarships is only 10%.  Ouch.

That's true.  Akron's litigation program is ranked in the Top 20 in the Nation by US news.  Does that make a difference? Or is the schools overall ranking what matters?

Kansas costs just over $19,000.  Akron boasts that they have an amazing litigation program.  Do you think that makes much of a difference?  I have a few friends in law school and they all tell me that reputation gets you a job much faster than the quality of your education.

I guess I'd better get ready for a 2000 mile trip.
