Denials / OSU Moritz- No more acceptances :(
« on: April 15, 2005, 06:57:39 PM »
So I guess I'm unoffically rejected after hearing that they're full and everyone will be either waitlisted or rejected. Kind of sucks that they would be full before their app deadline. I know it's better to apply early, but geez, at least save some space for people applying the last month of your admissions period :( My numbers were right in line with the majority of people who were admitted that decided to attend.

It sucks because I really only want to attend one school: OSU. Going out of state is a waste of money, and in-state there is only 1 tier-1 school. I might still go to the one I got scholarship money to though.

I got into 2 of the 3 law schools I applied to, and I'm still waiting on OSU, which was my #1 choice. Unfortunately, after calling the admissions office, I found out that they've sent out all of their acceptances and everyone still under review is waitlisted or rejected. I don't really want to go to the other 2 I applied to, which leaves me thinking that maybe I should wait and apply early next year. I'm almost certain that I will be waitlisted because I applied pretty late, as my numbers are good enough to get in, and right in line with what most accepted who decided to attend had.

I'm thinking maybe it would be better to work for a year, take the lsat again in june, and apply early next year. Anyone else thinking of delaying a year to try and get into a better school? Is it stupid to wait a year to try and get into a higher ranked school?(Aka tier 3 to tier 1?)

Do a search for negotiation, negotiating, or scholarships. There's a big thread discussing the best way to try and get more.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: OSU Moritz a black hole?

I have a #2, I just hate wasting the $150 to reserve a seat I might not want.

I had the same reaction with my application to Cleveland-Marshall. They offered 4k/yr and my gpa was in their top half, but my lsat was off of their charts. Thought I'd get at least 3/4 tuition. I plan on asking for more if I decide to attend.

Yeah, I'm not sure what's taking them so long either. My numbers were competitive and they've had it "in committee" for a month now. I'm not sure what they're waiting for, but it should only take about 10 minutes to go through the average application. How you can stretch that out to 30+ days, even with multiple people reading it, is beyond me.

I've sent 2 e-mails and left 2 messages on voicemail there and never hear back from these people. It's like a communications black hole, things go in, and never come out. Anyone else having trouble getting ahold of anyone there? I'm just trying to see what's going on with my app, as they've had it for over a month with no word and seat deposits are due everywhere.

All economics arguements aside, it's pretty simple if you ask me: Service jobs. Do a service that can't be replicated cheaply in another country and you're fine. Do you think police officers worry about oursourcing? Doctors? Cooks? There are a ton of jobs out there, and it only seems bleak to those in the fields getting diced up.

Sounds like office space.

Oh, and to answer the question above: You can't farm out legal work to India.
