@Mountaineer99: I got mine via email from a specific adcom member
to anyone admitted: were there any updates to your status before you were notified of the decision?
Not that I recall, I actually think it took a couple hours for my portal to reflect the A and I thought I got catfished
Just hoping Brutus will be my valentine now

It's kind of surprising (not in a good or bad way, just surprising) that Moritz's annual enrollment is around 158.
iwbeasscjoafjoalcs
18:54
That's super small.
iwbeasscjoafjoalcs

Especially considering how large OSU is in general and that even small annual enrollments at reasonably well-regarded law schools are often thought to be around 200.
They're splitting the Ohio market with a lot of different schools. U of C, Case Western, and a lot of others. The OSU degree has transferability but the school itself is pinned to supporting the legal market of Columbus, not the entirety of Ohio.
Has anyone gotten details on scholarships? I got accepted but did not have anything said about when they would release it.
@CoolBeneficialChipmunk: same here
I think OSU placed alright in Cleveland historically, most of the major donors in OSU's history and the Moritz they get the name from were BakerHostetler partners.

For those who were recently accepted, did you get to URII before a response? I have the same date still of when I applied in Oct.

I did not get to URII, just received an email from admissions staff and then saw it through my portal

Does it seem like they are doing waves or random? Waiting since late November ...
also waiting
it seems like they let in people who are over 75ths in LSAT or GPA weekly on either tuesday or wednesday
otherwise it's random

I applied early October and got the email from admissions last Friday

Someone else that got a Leadership merit award- is it annual? It says a total number spread across 6 semesters but also says it is automatically renewable each year
10:55
For those of you who have received As, generally how long did scholarship information take?
@Barlowly: 2-3 weeks...ish

If I were to go to Moritz, would I need a car or would it work to walk/bike/take public transportation to and from wherever I'm living and the law school?
8888887777776t6t

And relatedly, do 1Ls typically live on campus or elsewhere in the city of Columbus?
8888887777776t6t
19:20
I've heard that Columbus public transit is bad, which makes me think I'd need to be close enough to campus to walk or bike. For I don't want to get a car for law school.
Columbus is the largest city in the US to not have 24 hr public transit

That's good to know, thanks. But would it be feasible for me to get around---to and from the law school, for example---just by walking or biking, if I don't live on campus? Or is it only feasible if I live on campus?
Most of the students Ive talked to live ~2 miles or less from campus and ride the bus

@BaldEagle02: Ok, that's good to know, thanks. I'd hope I could walk or bike when the weather is warm rather than always ride the bus. But I guess there are worse things in the world.
