Some interesting facts about University of Oregon School of Law

Founded in 1884, the University of Oregon School of Law is Oregon’s only public law school and is recognized for its history of leadership, innovation, and its long-standing commitment to social justice. The School of Law is one of several professional schools of the University of Oregon, which is located in Eugene, the state’s second largest city. The School also offers a program for third-year law students at the Downtown Portland campus of the University. The University of Oregon is a “Tier 1” national public research university and is the only Oregon institution elected to membership in the prestigious Association of American Universities.

The University of Oregon School of Law, in 1923, became one of the first law schools to be accredited by the American Bar Association. Oregon Law is regarded as one of the best law schools in the state, and as one of the top public law schools for environmental law, dispute resolution, and legal research and writing. The School of Law has enjoyed such national recognition for more than a decade.

The academic experience is appropriately competitive, but is also defined by a strong camaraderie among its students. This reputation has increasingly attracted a large percentage of students from outside of Oregon. In 2017, that percentage was 71 percent. Students and faculty at Oregon Law share a fundamental optimism for the study of law and its practice. Graduates, focused on the unique work-life balance that characterize the Pacific Northwest, practice principally in Seattle and Portland, though Oregon Law alumni also work throughout the West and in Washington, DC.

The first communication I received from UO since submitting my application was for a scholarship application portal. Anyone else get this?
Got it too idk what it means
21:24
And UO hadn't sent you anything before this?
Nope. But i applied last year, got waitlisted, then rejected, and never got this email. I improved my app this year and applied earlier so this is new to me
21:44
Part of me thinks it's a new process.

Nothing pulls up on Reddit
Thats weird to waste time sending scholarship emails to students that arent admitted?

Could be a way for them to gauge interest. You'd have to be really interested in going to UO Law to apply for scholarships before you even know if you're admitted.
I considered that as well. Feels like a lot to go through for them. Also seems pretty mean to provide a way to apply for scholarships only to reject people. Did you go through the whole process?
17:36
I haven't yet but I will in the next couple of weeks.
They called me back and said no decisions have been made for anyone. They will start sending decision the week before winter break, so middle of december

anyone heard from University of Utah?

Whoops sorry wrong chat haha
I got the scholarship email awhile back and was accepted yesterday. I was surprised to see how expensive their tuition is though. It doesn't seem like scholarships are as generous as they could be with the tuition being so high
