OSU Moritz School of Law Visit
« on: January 24, 2005, 11:22:30 AM »
I visited the Moritz School of Law at the Ohio State University today and here is what I found out:

1. They are reducing their class size from 270 to 200 this year because of over enrollment during the last 2 years.  That means 500 acceptances instead of their usual 600-610. 
2. Medians will thus go up to 161 and a 3.6.
3. New Apartments will be right across from the law school inside the new "Univesity Gateway" which is set to open in fall of 2005 at OSU.  90 of the 160 apts will be for law students. 
4. They are right on schedule with their decisions...after your file is complete expect to hear after 4-6 weeks. Acceptances are done on phone and snail mail.
MAIN THING:
EXPECT THEM TO TAKE HARDLY ANYONE BELOW THEIR GPA AND LSAT RANGES.  IT BASICALLY KILLS MY SHOT WITH A 152.
4 YEARS AT OSU AND THIS COULD BE THE LAST!:(

I got in last week with a 3.11 and a 171. My GPA is way below their range. So there's some hope :)

I've got a 153 and a 3.3.  I've met a couple of 1Ls from there who said there numbers were well below in both areas but that they really do review apps from cover to cover.  I'm hoping my resume will make the difference but I'm not holding my breath.

I think I saw someone with a 153 on LSN.  My app just went complete today on their status site (the file went complete 1/3).  I should be getting my letter any day.  Can't imagine it will be good...
