Admitted to Mitchell Hamline School of Law via status checker!! Yay! Acceptance letter and other important information has been sent in the mail. Will update on any scholarship info when received.
-UPDATE- received an email several hours after I checked the status checker. Acceptance letter with scholarship info, renewable 30% scholarship. I plan to try and negotiate more.

Rejected at Dayton via status checker. This honestly came as a bit of a surprise and I am disappointed.

Waitlisted at SU!! At least it wasn't a flat out no. I am definitely riding this one out as it is my first choice. Sent in waitlist acceptance and LOCI.

Received a 10% scholarship increase from Mitchell Hamline, now totals 40% of tuition. Only stipulation is maintaining a GPA of 2.20. Have officially decided to accept MHLS and attend there in the fall.

This is especially important for people who are considering law school, but want to sit for the bar in NEW YORK. Look into the Executive J.D. program at MH. It meets all of the components/requirements to sit for the bar in NY, but is mostly online. This is the program that I have enrolled in and if I decide to stay in NY, I will still be able to sit for the bar.

SU - withdrawing from the waitlist.

How do you like MH? I am considering MH and am curious to get an actual student's opinion (good and bad)!
