Nice to see another non-traditional student applying! I also had GPA issues when I was younger, as well. I am hoping that years of public service and a strong graduate GPA will suffice for admission. Not quite as good as being a veteran, but hopefully it is enough. Best of luck to you, I will be watching and hoping that get a good spot (or several).

all or nothing

This cycle, I am only applying to UW Madison. I work full-time in the area, and plan to continue while in law school. I hope to study law part-time after I finish my Master's program here this spring. If I don't get accepted at UW, I will probably have to sell my house and move closer to another school. That will take some time, so it probably wouldn't work to start anywhere else this fall.

I am a non-trad who has 20+ GPA drag on my transcripts as well. Your LSAT is a good balance especially at the schools you applied to. I wish you luck. I am lucky to say I have gotten into U of Denver which is where I am planning on attending. Maybe I will see you there.

so far, so good

Looks like you will have a few choices, at least. It would be nice to get answers from your top choices, though. How come U of MN is so far down your list? It is all about geography for you, and not so much about rankings?

in the same boat

I am also suffering from some GPA drag from my undergraduate days, and am not at all certain how well my application will be received. I am just finishing my Master's at UW this spring, though, and hope that my graduate GPA will warrant some consideration. I really like the Madison area, and the school, and don't want to move. Commuting to Marquette or Nothern would also be tough while I'm still working here in Madison. I was feeling more optimistic about our chances until I saw the first couple of rejections from UW posted today. One of them had fairly strong numbers, so it was rather depressing to see. I am reconsidering whether I should apply to Marquette and Nothern this cycle after all. Of course, few people have soft factors as impressive as yours, so you still should have an excellent shot. I will say a prayer for all of us non-traditionals tonight. Best of luck.

Good luck

Good luck on Madison. It's my first choice as well. A friend of mine goes to William Mitchell and has a lot of good things to say about the school.

congratulations!

First one to put the "A" there! Nicely done. What's your story?

Bravo

Congrats on happy end of merciless admission process!

So I was looking through the st. thomas acceptances and was wondering if you got a magazine with your three letters or just a t-shirt? Because I got three super super nice letters and a really neat magazine about the city, but I was really looking forward to their T-Shirt LOL.

um......no I don't

benefit not program

It is a veterans benefit, not a gov't program. A careful look would reveal it in the "$$$$" column which I feel is an accurate description of any financial assistance.

another veteran wondering about the WI G

hey hogprint, congrats on getting in, I hope your first year is going well. I know in your profile here you talked about getting the WI GI bill, and was wondering if anything has changed recently as far as continuing to get it. I was tracking some discussion about it in the Legislature, but from what I could tell they left it alone. As someone who is also entitled to get the benefit, I was hoping you might be able to give me a better idea of how it all works. Thanks in advance, hope you actually get this, another interested vet
