Yep, small envelope, and in fact, I think it was the same as the original defer envelope...

You got in off the deferred list?  That's good to know.  I got deferred too, and was wondering when they'd start sending out the decisions.

Got the rejection letter yesterday. Not very surprised with a 162, but had a personal statement that I thought was going to make the difference. Interestingly enough, there was a short hand-written note stating how much they admired in my application. I wonder how many people got that line???

That would annoy me to no end.  "If you admired it so much... why didn't you admit me?!"

So, I'm currently reading Law School Confidential and I've just gotten to the part in which he mentions that there are schools that have notoriously bad atmospheres and are home to all the book-hiding nonsense that everybody always hears about.

Anyway, while I'm sure much of this is blown out of proportion... does anybody know of any schools that are supposed to be pretty cut throat?  I figured we could compile a list of them here, with anecdotes and whatnot.

EDIT: And yes...I KNOW there are some similar threads... but they all seemed to consist of "My cousin's dad's brother dated this chick who once drove by Hastings on a Friday and..." sorts of stuff.  I'm looking for specific examples.   :)

Also looking seriously at Wisc, myself.  I think the whole no-bar exam in Wisconsin thing may be a part of it.  Combine that with the low cost of living, and I imagine a lot of people stay there.

Congrats!  I may end up at Wisconsin too.

What were your numbers? And I thought it was pretty standard to get residency after one year?

LSAT: 162, LSDAS GPA: 3.57.   

As for residency?  Check out their website.  You have to somehow "prove" that you're in the state for something other than educational purposes.

I got in and I'm in Cali too... but I wouldn't be too excited about that "low tuition" thing...  Looks like it's pretty damn hard to get residency in the state.

I got accepted in late November.  No word on $$$ yet, though.  They have a seperate scholarship app, so I think they get to it later.

Of course, since I am basically a "middle of the road" guy there, I doubt they'll offer much of anything.
