Denials / Re: OSU Moritz- No more acceptances :(

Yeah, the guy that got accepted applied in January though. I honestly don't see anyone who applied in February that got in except for one person who applied on the 3rd of Feb and had a 167 lsat. Seems that anyone else who applied after that date was wasting their money.

Don't read this message board maybe?

Damn. There's a prime example of why people hate lawyers and frivolous lawsuits. They weren't required to wear what the book said, it was just meant as advice to help them do their job better. If they want to try and sell products to white people, you have to appear as though you fit in. That's a basic tenet of good selling technique: relate to people. If you show up in flowing robes and a 12" fro, the average white person is not going to want to buy anything from you and that's just common sense.

Yeah, I had another post title "OSU Moritz a black hole" because I've sent 2 e-mails, and left a phone call and never heard back from anyone. I finally called and got through to someone, but they certainly don't respond to e-mails and messages very well.

Hippie, your numbers are almost identical to mine. I would like my money back as well if they did indeed fill up before their app deadline as it appears they did.

I called whatever the number is that's listed on the appstatus page for moritz. It was the admissions office, and they DID tell me that they were full, and that everyone under review was waitlisted or denied. I'm just relaying what they said, and it doesn't surprise me because my brother applied to their undergrad with more than adequate numbers, and was told they were already full and he could attend starting in the spring. It seems like they tried to fill their class as fast as possible and didn't have many spots left for anyone applying in february.


I was offered scholarship money at Cleveland-Marshall, and got into Case. Case is way too expensive, and I have a feeling that if I go to Cleveland-Marshall I will be surrounded by people that I wouldn't consider very bright, and wouldn't learn as much as if I attended OSU's program. Plus, I'm interested in ADR, and OSU is supposed to have one of the best programs in the country for that. I'm convinced I would get in if I applied early next year, and I'm 99% sure I could increase my LSAT as well. The only problem is what to do in the interim.

My best guess at what I would do is caddy for as long as I can, then head out west and work at a ski resort. I feel like if I do decide to wait a year, I'm not going to get a crappy job for a year when I could be having fun instead. It's just that waiting a year costs money in opportunity costs from delaying the start of my legal career. I wish I didn't have to make this decision, but I suppose it's not the end of the world :)

I called the admissions office, and she said that everyone was either going to be rejected or waitlisted, as they were full. Seeing as no one was taken off the waitlist last year, it's basically all rejections.

My work experience would be something fun, like heading out to Colorado to work at a ski resort or something. I can't see myself starting a "real" job and then leaving after a year. What kind of work do you think you'd get right out of college? Probably nothing interesting.

I see what you're saying, it's just that the opportunities from graduating from a crappy school aren't good. I've been told that counting on a transfer isn't a very smart idea because if you don't do well enough, you're stuck. Plus your class rank is gone. Still, I will have to think on it more.
