Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Wisconsin Update Letter
« on: December 16, 2004, 08:02:34 AM »
I just got an email two days ago saying file is complete. In that email it says they send out monthly status reports on your application. That's so nice of them. ;D

There seems to be a lot of "nice" happening at that place.  I had to call the admissions office with a couple of questions, and I randomly ended up getting the Dean of Admissions on the phone.  Really nice guy, with all sorts of questions about where I'm living, what school I'm leaning towards, etc.

Hey congratulations!!! :-) ... I'm finishing up my senior year of undergrad here at Wisconsin and it's really a great campus and a great community and city...

See... the good food thing is key.  I'm currently on the west coast, where I can get any sort of random cuisine I want.   ;)

Also depends on the size of the firm.  Big Firms usually have more required hours and higher pay... but life is less insane at a Medium sized ones... with lowe pay.  I'd rather take the pay cut and only work 65 hours a week.  That 80-100 hours a week New York lawyer thing sounds about as entertaining as a root canal.

If I go to LLS, I will definitely miss the collegial atmosphere of a larger college.

USC is down the street.  Go watch a couple of football games... you'll feel better. ;)

OK... where on earth is this thing online?  All I get on their website is the Fafsa link, which we can't really do yet, and their tax form cover sheet... which we also can't really do yet.

Even doing a search for "Scholarship" doesn't bring it up.  All I get are passages explaining that the "Scholarship and Grant Application Form" will be mailed to me, or descriptions of the office/room number in which I can pick the thing up.

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.

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?

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.
