Not quite, but Yale sent me a letter saying, "Don't even think about applying to Yale. Yale understands that applying to law school can be difficult and expensive. To ensure you don't waste our admissions staff's valuable time, we're doubling the application fee. If you lack the good sense it takes not to apply, please include a copy of this letter with your application.".

HTH.

I was thinking about this today.  It makes sense that the schools send out rejection letters later in the application season because they may want to hold on to possible admits in case there is an opening near the end of the cycle.

I think thats what waitlisting is for? If your credentials are very poor they're gonna reject you no matter what? I think its that middle-some that get kept for awhile. I think?

"i think thats what waitlisting is for" is most definitly not a question!

If you look at LSN, you see that most schools hold off on rejects until Jan or later.  I think it's so you don't feel like you wasted your app fee and got no consideration.

Someone told me GMU rejected them after like 4 weeks, though...

the sole of your foot?  :D

an upspeaker (as i assume draino menat it) ends every sentence or phrase with a rise in pitch (which actually changes the meaning in some languages, but in english just makes you sound like you're from the valley). so the best way? to represent that over the internet? would be to use question marks? dyou know what i mean?

if you want to know more i refer you to dale spender who wrote about gender & linguistic differences. she's fun.

Kelly, what were your numbers, WE, and extra currics? if you don't mind me asking....

The consensus seems to be that Kelly was a troll :)  No letters for Chicago or Columbia or NYU yet (that anyone here knows of).  Plus Kelly claimed to be a swimsuit model currently enrolled at Yale, as well -- but her spelling and her glossy magazine photo seemed to disprove both of those things.

...and the fact that she said she was a business major, and business isn't a major at yale.  then she said that she meant finance, but that's not a yale major either.

but since kelly was making stuff up, do you want me to make up some stuff too to answer your question?  ;)

We already went over this.  I did mean sole of my foot.

your an angry drunk downy (im assuming that you were drunk when writing this) and i think that you should be careful about being around kids when you are consuming alcohol.

By that i mean if you are not around children while you’re drunk you will not have the opportunity to beat them. So i think you should definitely make sure that you are around children whenever possible.

Beating children is not nearly as much fun as beating old people.
