Acceptances / Re: Is anyone going to the University of Wisconsin

I'm currently seriously considering going there. I think I'm going to try to make it to the thing in April. 

I'm really anxious to hear about money though. That whole "out of state is 3 times as much as in-state... while the state of Wisc is really picky about establishing residency" thing is a little worrisome.

Got my ding today... but I'm not exactly broken up over it.  I applied back during a political fervor in October, with the thoughts of moving to D.C.  I got over that idea, and had actually already pretty muched scrapped the idea of going to George Mason.

Still... the ding sucks.  AND it puts me below .500.   >:(

Me too.  162 LSAT, 3.57 LSDAS GPA.  This is actually the first non-acceptance that stings a bit.  The In-State Tuition would have been nice.   >:(

What are your numbers and when did you apply?

LSAT: 162, LSDAS GPA: 3.57.  I applied some time in October.

I got the ding on Friday!  And my offer for a $500 gift certificate!    :P

What a frickin' joke. Seriously, somebody should pull the Dean aside and tell him that that is the most tactless thing to put on a rejection letter.

Hilarious... but tactless.

Nice!  When were you complete?

No clue.  I applied Mid-Octoberish... if that helps.

I got my Priority Waitlist letter today... which is pretty surprising considering my 162 LSAT and my 3.57 LSDAS GPA.   That's about a 25% chance of admit on Chiashu... and I'm a white guy!    ;)

Behold the power of a rockin' personal statement, I guess.

Got my ding today.  Not too bummed, in all honesty.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: madison vs. chicago-kent/depaul/loyola

My $0.02 (if it's worth even that-- I'm not applying this cycle): Go to Madison.  I think Chicago is a 1-1.5 hr drive away, it is a very natural market for grads and summer associates.  And while you may now be certain of your desire to work in Chicago post-graduation, you never know what your future will bring.  Suppose in 20 years your spouse needs to move to DC for work?  Or Cali?  My guess is that your Wiscsonisn degree would be significantly more portable than a degree from one of the Chicago schools. I know that it shouldn't really make a difference where your degree is from after you've been out so long, but I think that in many cases it does.

That's exactly the way I'm looking at it.

Please let us know when you were complete so I have an idea of where they are in the process...

Not really sure when I was complete.  I applied in Mid-October, if that helps.
