When I spoke to the advisor, I asked her what people should wish they had done when they applied. She said they wish the asked for a higher scholarship amount. She sent me the form. Worse they can say is no. I sent it in December and haven't heard back yet.
Interesting. I might look into it. Im waiting for two other schools to get back to me to make my final decision. Is this the school you have decided on for sure?
also, I saw your stats when I applied and you gave me the hope I needed to hold on to to get admitted, thank you for that!
19:21
Yes. I live in the Twin Cities and work full-time so its my only option under the circumstances.
got it. Same here. I live in Phoenix and am expecting a baby in April (my wife) so this is the most ideal for us
Only other options are ASU and syracuse JDi
how long did it take for you to get your letter in the mail?
19:26
Roughly 2 weeks from the email. They also called, which was nice.
19:26
Congrats on the baby on the way
I got the email Monday morning and the status checker said admitted on sunday evening, i guess ill stop checking the mail crazily lol. Thanks! Very nervous for this whole process with a baby but it will be worth it in the end!
it says we can graduate in may of 2026 or may 2027...do you know what the means exactly?
19:30
From what I understand, you can adjust day/night courses and part-time/full time selections. So you could switch and graduate in 3 as opposed to 4 years if you wanted to.
got it. so will you be doing the in person program? I will be doing the online one from Arizona
19:32
I chose part-time evenings on campus
how is the area? I will be having to stay close for two weeks in person. Wondering the best place to stay because i know thats going to get pricey too
19:45
There are a ton of hotel options in the area. It is 15-20 mins from MSP airport so the commute is pretty short. The school is in the older part of St. Paul with some solid architecture. There are 5 hospitals in a 20 mile radius so if youre in the market for having a medical emergency, youre pretty much set.
Its funny because my number one fear is being too far from a hospital, so thats perfect!

I have been under review since 02/02, and since then the status Under Review hasn't change but the date has. 02/02, 02/03, 02/08, and 02/09. Anyone have the same thing happen?
@QuickestChildlikeChimpanzee: which is MH?
Don't think it's the one I'm thinking of lol'
11:17
@UnicornPA: That happened to me. I believe that anytime they look at the application during the review process it changes. The website says to expect a decision in 4-6 weeks but it took about 9 weeks from sending to a decision. Good luck!

When you got your decision, was it the morning or sometime throughout the day?
14:59
I got it in the morning. Around 9am
i got A but declined
bar rate very low
12:11
Congratulations! Getting accepted to law school is a huge accomplishment.
12:30
Has anyone had any experience in scholarship reconsideration? I sent in the reconsideration form in December and havent heard back.
@LawyerUp88: Are you trying to renegotiate based on a recent (and higher) LSAT?
15:12
No. Based on the recommendation of their advisor, higher GPA and work experience.
