Can anyone tell me my chances at getting into Toledo? I've got a 157/3.4 

Is it a decent program? Hard to get into?

Wow, I didn't know their numbers changed. Thanks for posting that. I might have to rethink some things because now it looks like I'm below both the gpa/lsat medians.  :-\

I would still think you have a good chance depending on how strong your soft factors are.

Im a 1L right now. Id like to know where you went to undergrad, but I would rate your chances as high to very high. I say that about undergrad because my numbers were well below yours and wayyyyyy below the means. However, I think that either my personal statement or the fact that I went to a great undergrad helped me out.

I really, really like UT law. I am a very critical person when it comes to profs and my experience with them here has been nothing short of amazing. The student body is great too. None of the snobbery that you hear about at other schools. People work hard too which is awesome because we have had a lot of fun also. Im not getting burned out at all and feel that I am on top of my classes. Last friday we had a golf outing with 72 students and everyone had a blast. I stumbled in the door at 4am. Come Sunday though, it seemed all of us were pulling an all day session at the library.

I would advise you to apply as soon as possible. Applying online is free and who knows, you might even get money on top of your acceptance. Their numbers this year are very intimidating, but trust me when I say that even though Im probably in the bottom 10% numbers wise, I never once have felt intimidated or worried about success. Numbers mean absolutely nothing once you are in and Im sure it is like that everywhere.

If you have any questions, holler. I still check the board from time to time when I am bored and not studying. It will be very interesting to see the USNEWS rankings this winter. UT has made a huge improvement. The numbers are decieving because a large number of the less qualified students (myself included) are admitted to a 1st semester part-time day program which turns full time in the winter. I suspect that is only for the purpose of upping the numbers.

Thanks for the info. It's nice to hear from someone who has already been through the process.  I do have a couple questions though:  1. How much do you think Toledo cares about your undergrad school? I went to a smaller state school that's really nothing special. 2. Do you know if UT ever has any open houses or anything? I've been trying to find out but have been told they only do it for admitted students.  3. The part time day program doesn't sound that bad. Is it something you apply for or do they put you in it?

I don't think they care much because I know a lot of people here that went to small colleges in Ohio. I just think it helps you out a little if you did go to a great undergrad. As for open houses, I don't think they do, but if you contact admissions they will let you sit in on classes and tour the school. They just put you in it, but I think you could ask to be put in it after acceptance and they would do so. To be honest, it is the greatest thing in the world. Everyone in it is as happy as a pig in mud. We are getting a nice transition into law and can afford to have some free time and fun. Plus we are still ranked with everyone else so it is really nice to think that when everyone has X amount of hours to study for 4 finals we will have X amount (plus a little more) to study for 2 finals. I have no excuse to do poorly this semester.

Also it really allows you to mess around with different note taking techniques and study methods to find something that works. If I had 5 classes, it would be wasting time to tinker with things and re-read stuff, etc, but now I can really play around and find what works.

Your chances are excellent.  I think you are an auto-admit, and will be given a nice pile of $$$ as an enticement.
