I got the ding on Friday! And my offer for a $500 gift certificate! 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.
What are your numbers and when did you apply?
Believe me, if it wasn't for the in-state tuition, that school would be absolutely nowhere. By being half of the cost of other law schools, they get every decent applicant in Illinois to apply; thus improving their numbers/rankings/reputation. In return more decent applicants apply. It's a vicious cycle trapping unsuspecting fools into the wasteland of Champaign for three years. I just graduated undergrad from there in May and it will be a cold day in hell before a recommend anyone to go there.
