Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: In at Wisconsin!
« on: December 14, 2004, 09:50:26 AM »
I got the scholarship form in the mail on Friday.  I live in Madison, so i am sure it got to me more quickly than most.  They also said in the letter that they prefer the application electronically from their site somewhere.  Also-it is a supplementary form on LSACD.

That's promising.  I'm in Los Angeles... so I get everything about a week later than everybody else.

Thanks!

Maybe. I haven't been accepted yet, but I received something in October about applying for scholarships. Now that I think about it, that may have been a need-based application only.

Is that something different than what you're talking about? What is Wisconsin's procedure on merit-based aid?

According to their viewbook/website, they'll send out a form for both scholarships and grants to all APPLICANTS after December 1st.   So, I don't know what you've received.  Hmmmmm, I may just shoot them an email.  I got accepted already, so I suppose I can bother them now without having to worry about "my chances."   ;)

Anybody else know anything about the forms?

Law School Admissions / Wisconsin Scholarship Application?
« on: December 14, 2004, 08:45:43 AM »
Here's a quesion:  Has anyone received the Scholarship and Grant application form from Wisconsin yet?  They said they'd mail it out some time after December 1st... but I still haven't seen it.

Depends on the size of the firm and the location.  For example, I have NO desire to do NYC BigLaw.  I would like to work in a firm, but not one of the monsterous ones.  I would happily work 55-65 hours a week (with the occasionally crunch-time boost) for 80 grand at MediumLaw than work 80-100 hours a week for 125 grand at BigLaw.

I know that Spartan Stadium is a good place to watch a football game.... but that's about all I've got for ya.   ;)

I basically looked at places that I have a 15%-20% chance of admission and thought "Well... That's 1 in 5ish.  SOMEBODY has to get in!"

My GPA is under 3.00 and I'm applying exclusively to T1 schools, most in the top 30.  There is a legitimate chance I could go 0 for 14.  My GPA is well below the 25th percentile even at my "safeties".

That's a ballsy move.  A tier 2 isn't going to kill you.  You can start off in the area surrounding your school and always move to new cities as your career moves along.

"the adcom would like to enourcage you to apply for admission as a transfer student if you find yourself achieving success at an ABA approved law school.  If admitted, we will be delighted to award you a $500 book certificate for use at the College's bookstore upon your enrollment as a 2L."  

OK, the ding blows...  but the letter is classic.  "You suck... but look!  Free books!  Maybe." 

I applied there as well... if you don't mind me asking... what were your numbers?

Sigh, Minnesota is one of my top choices and now I'm getting really freaked out hearing this from all of you. Waiting till May would definitely suck.

When were your applications complete and when were your letters dated?

Thanks.

I sent in all my stuff early in October, but they didn't request my LSDAS report until November.  The "You're deferred!  Mu ha ha ha ha!"  letter is dated December 3rd.

Hope that helps!
