I chose Group 1 cuz' I didn't want to sit thru the class and then the panel. I thought I would need a bit of a break and the walking tour would provide that. That's just me tho'.
This worries me. The median LSAT at the my university's law school is 147 and the GPA 3.50. Sure there's a language barrier and everything but I have no clue how adcomms are going to interpret the whole deal.
just an update for all of you - I attended the open house this past weekend and Mike Hall mentioned that no schollarship offers have been sent yet (is that true?)
Also, seems like only 30% or so will be offered any money.
I really liked Wisc and Madison - The clinical programs especially are exciting. I'd be happy to comment further if anyone PMs me.
However, I also attended UIUC this weekend and it's got some pretty special things such as an amaxing administration which have me pretty convinced that I'd take it over UWMadison, especially if UW wouldn't match my UIUC scholarship, which it sounds like they don't do.
Yeah, what is the deal with their scholarships anyhow? Do they plan on getting them out anytime soon?
Wisconsin! What can I say? I got home from the admitted studentís day a little while ago and I have to say that I am just amazed. Its been awhile since I last visited Madison and it is such a gorgeous location. I drove in from the north on Washington and the view of the state capitol in front of me was just breath-taking. I came to the weekend not expecting too much, but I came away with a great vibe from those that go there. I have gone to other campus preview day things and always gotten the vibe that the students, staff, and faculty was really trying to sell the school. Here, their enthusiasm for the school and town seemed genuine. I was really impressed by Micheleís presentation about clinicals. If I do end up at UW in the fall it would be due in large part to her zest for the school and the amazing opportunities that are to be found. M. Hall was charming in a goofy kind of way. Prof Schwartz(sp?) seems like an awesome professor to have in class. The love for this law school showed through throughout todayís event. My tour guide was very knowledgeable and was able to answer the questions that I have. UW is just a great law school and prob. be a good place to spend 3 years.
Wow, you would really consider turning down a T14 for Wisconsin? If that isn't a resounding review for Wisconsin, I don't know what is. Hmm, I am thinking I really should try and get out to the next Admitted student's weekend at Wisconsin even if it is way far away from me, it sounds like it is worth it.
Bump... just got the e-mail. It's good to know I can at least make a choice now
EDIT: Also just got an e-mail for a Penn Law Reception/ Dinner in Chicago. Sweet!
I would have applied to a lot fewer schools!
i also would have studied more for the LSAT, instead of just coasting through my prep course. oh and i would have tried harder in undergrad, but i'm guessing you're way past that point
i would also get more people to read my personal statement.
and of course, apply EARLY!
