Law School Admissions / When will I hear from USC?
« on: December 30, 2004, 08:11:24 AM »
Does anybody have a guess when I'll hear from USC (Pookie maybe, who seems to be the expert on the school)? I applied RD in September. Desperately waiting to hear from them ):

3.67/155/164 (so they DO take the higher score). Yay!

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Did all GW acceptances get an email?

So if I didn't get one yet should I worry (I applied in early October)?

Law School Admissions / To those accepted at Cornell

Did Cornell send you an email before you got the acceptance letter? Thanks.

I applied early October!!! Did get a flyer though that they received my app. Is anyone else in the same boat? Should I contact them and ask what the hell is up or will it just stress and annoy them?

Law School Admissions / Is USC only doing EA people so far?

I'm not EA and sent my app around September 20. Anyone have as guess when I will hear?

Law School Admissions / Cornell: When will I hear from you???

Desparately waiting for any sign of life from my dream school! Does anyone have infos on when they start sending apps? Also, will they send decisions according to completion date (mine was 09/23) or strength of numbers? Sorry for this somewhat pointless Cornell threat but the school is just not discussed/mentioned often enough for me here.

Law School Admissions / USC less of a number whore?

There's always these rumours floating around that USC is less of a number whore and cares a little more about diversity (as stated in length on their website). Is this just a legend or is there some truth to it? Any experience would be welcome - please give an anxious applicant some hope. :)

Do you guys think it's possible that schools give you a slight break on the LSAT if they really like the rest of your application? (At the risk that some people know my identity now), here is my case:

- Foreign applicant (European), grew up there, came to the US when I was 20. English is second language
-Went to college in the US (University of Chicago), GPA 3.67
-Masters from LSE in European politics
- Wrote essay on what I wanna do after LS: US-European relations. Made sure the essay is well written.
- Now the problem part: LSAT 155/164. I took the first one right after not speaking English for three months, thus my lower score (wrote an addendum explaining that and asking them to take my higher score)

I hope the adcoms will like me for diversity reasons, give me plus points for attending good schools and getting good grades and give me a slight break on the LSAT. Is that a realistic or do schools just don't do that (I am familiar with the importance of the numbers)? I only applied to top 20 schools (everything else makes little sense since I don't have US work permit). Thanks for your comments!

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Georgetown ED?

So some people have been accepted EA at GT, but has anyone who applied ED been accepted? Are they looking at those people after the EA applicants then? What's the deal with Georgetown ED?
