Few quick questions:

1.) Do you think scholarships to OSU are likely with my scores?

2.) Do you think they'll bargain a scholarhip?

3.) What are comparable schools to use in bargaining? Cinci or Kentucky?

OSU *can* be quite stingy with their scholarships, although I've talked to some people who received fairly generous offers (not sure of their stats - I would assume 167+ LSAT and probably a fairly high GPA from the other schools they got into). 

According to someone I talked to at the admissions office, their target class size this year is 205ish.

Paperback,
When did you apply to OSU and how soon did you receive your letter? I applied in early January, was complete in early February, and have been "Referrered" for over a month.

I only applied to 4 Ohio schools and still haven't heard from OSU or Case. I am still hoping that I get one acceptance out of the two, otherwise I am off to Cincinnati (which is seeming like a better option as the days pass).

Also, are you holding out for more acceptances, or have you already decided where you are attending?

Sorry to hear that man.

Since I applied on the 17th on January, it looks like I will be waiting at least another week or two. Blah. I had this fear that something happened to my application.

I went complete on 2/24.  Good god, why do I keep checking the online status checker?  I know I probably won't get a decision until mid-April....

I was complete 1/3.  My file said referred until today.  However, it doesn't say "decision" in status it says "complete".  WTFWTFWTF

Sorry to hear about OSU.  I went to Capital's open house this weekend.  Are you considering them?

I am definitely considering Capital.  Absolutely.  I like living in Columbus, and going to Capital would fit nicely with practicing law in Columbus.
