Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Waitlisted at UCLA
« on: April 14, 2008, 12:36:52 PM »
So, I got waitlisted today from UCLA. I was a bit shocked since my LSAT is a 157. Yes, my GPA is high (3.92). But, come on, numerous people have high GPA's and have solid LSAT scores. Not sure why they waitlisted me and not just rejected me. The only things I can think of is that I have a science minor and that my PS was pretty solid.

Is UCLA known for waitlisting more people than other schools? Should I just take this with a grain of salt?  They mentioned in the letter that applicants have not been placed in specific order on the waitlist.

So what are the chances I actually get into this school? I say .001%.

I went to a bunch of places to get a laptop for law school, and this is the one I thought was best for the price - $850.

Any thoughts???

Incoming 1Ls / Law Students: Which laptop do you recommend????
« on: March 15, 2008, 09:50:30 PM »
I need to get one... ASAP for school.
Any recommendations??
Oh-I'm on a budget and need something lightweight.

I went to NY this week to visit Cardozo and could not stand the weather, how exorbitant everything is and of course the fast-paced life.
I'm thinking of staying home in Cali and going to Pepperdine.
Any thoughts?
Am I being stupid?

So, I click on the profile of a person who sent me a message on my profile. To my surprise, I saw that some idiot posed as me and wrote a very rude message. I was so upset. I don't think the LSN people should allow people to have the same username. Look at what this creep wrote:

Oh!! By the way, bad luck to your Fordham waitlist. I don't want you to get into a better school than me. Especially since your LSAT is only 3 points better but my GPA is MUCH higher. That would suck so bad if one lucky Sat. afternoon trumped my 4 years of excellence against your mediocre performance.

Anyway, we're lucky enough to get into Cardozo as it is!! LOL.

So, if you get any rude messages, it's not me!!!!!!

Incoming 1Ls / St. John's to Tier 1 Schools

 I posted this thread in the Grad section but thought I should put it here too, since there seems to be more activity. So, I have been admitted to St. John's PT day and I wanted to know if it's possible to transfer from this school to T14 schools afterwards.

I need to choose. St. John's gave me nothing, while the other two schools did.
I know St. John's is better in the rankings...
Which one should I go with????
