Title: THE MAIL CALL THREAD
Post by: Pancho on September 19, 2005, 06:03:32 PM
The thread for all the mail you get during the 2006 admissions cycle.

Post by: The Poster on September 19, 2005, 06:07:42 PM
I'll start.

Today (9/19):  Miami fee waiver via snail mail (already informed of it via e-mail), Cal-Berkeley (Boalt) packet, and Brooklyn packet.  Also received an e-mail from Iowa with an invitation to apply (they e-mailed me on Friday). 


Others?

I got the exact same stuff you did today, with the exception of boalt.

This is a great idea...seems like it could be really useful throughout this process if we can keep it up...we may want to do it on a day-by-day basis later on when admissions decisions start coming in...we would title threads "Mail Call 12/14" for example...

- Michigan fee waiver and invitation to apply (later than some other people but better than never)
- also got the University of Iowa College of Law invitation

Seton Hall sent me updated info pkt too, today.

If, like me, you're signed up for this weekend's LSAC forum in Chicago, you've received dozens of postcards and packets from the schools that are attending (too many to list).

And, for those who received Pepperdine's unsolicited postcard, who else is going based solely on the picture of campus on the front.  It's right on the beach in Malibu.

I think it's when you post basically the exact same thing on two threads.  There may be a different standard definition though, I'm not sure.

Hmm... I think certain ones of us just re-post things all the time.

I must have explained: 1) how to write an addendum, 2) how LSDAS LORs work, 3) which schools require Dean's Certifications and 4) my feelings on applications in general maybe 10 or 15 times each since I joined this site.

My housemate, who has been largely spared from hearing me obsess over my applicaiton status, noticed how much mail I'd been getting, and yesterday he asked me if any of the law schools had rejected me, or if they were all accepts.

So I had to explain about how really they were all advertisements.  But I thought it was funny.

Wow, can you tell how much I don't want to do my work today?

Post by: jeb240 on September 21, 2005, 08:34:53 AM
Uhm, I've charged my ex-boyfriend with the task of checking my mail and retrieving my packages.

In the past month I've received 3 package emails from the University, only one of which was I expecting.  In the past half year, almost ALL unexpected "packages" were actually law school things that were too high fallutin' to arrive by regular post.  So I KNOW I am getting some sort of law school mail (even if it's only schools that I do not want to apply to responding because of my "drop it like it's hot" 3.02 GPA), but I have not heard any word from him re: the mail.

Have I made a mistake?

Post by: The Dread Pirate Roberts on September 21, 2005, 12:28:27 PM
I think the LSAT is probably the trigger for a lot of it.

In their letter, Columbia basically came out and said that the waiver was 100% based on the LSAT and took nothing else into consideration (as part of the warning that it didn't imply a guarentee of acceptance).  I would imagine they're not the only ones.
Title: Re: THE MAIL CALL THREAD
Post by: Shellbell on September 22, 2005, 11:26:12 AM
Just an FYI to add to the convo, I received a WM and Mary as ell as a Wash and Lee waiver last year when I did not have an LSAT.  I didn't have to call and ask if I could use them this year b/c both offered waivers again to me.  So maybe some schools it is all about LSAT, but not all.  I think I may have gotten my pre-lsat ones b/c of gpa/location combo. Just a guess, not for certain.
Title: Re: THE MAIL CALL THREAD
Post by: Shellbell on September 22, 2005, 04:29:17 PM
When did you get your W&M one for this year?  I have an email one from last November that I was going to call them and ask if I could use for this cycle, but if they are sending them out again...

In July, I think. It was an email. However, you might want to check on LSAC b/c when I submitted my app, they had me down as having my fee waived due to crs.

I've checked LSAC, and it's not there. I thought the problem had to do with me not declaring immediately when I'd be applying to law school with CRS, but I've gotten NYU through the LSAC trick, and I got Michigan via snail mail (albeit later than most).

Click "continue" on the app screen. It will take you to a screen with payment options. For NYU and CLS, if your fee is waived, it will say so.

hey brave, you dont have to wait till you actually submit the app to NYU or CLS to find out if you get the waiver.  if you just click "continue" it will tell you, and then you can just cancel and it doesn't submit it.

so far, all those whom we've come across who have had sub-170 scores and received a columbia waiver have been URMs... so think it's a 170 cut-off for non-URMs... this is all just guessing tho

That does sound familiar.

Both of those books were sad.  And I think it scared me when I was little too.

But then again, the absurd wolf that was helping the Nothing in the Neverending Story scared me when I was little, so what can I say...

Did Cal Berk request your report today or already?  Ever since I saw that you applied 23 days before they said they'd accept applications, I was wondering what that would mean for you.  Although, given that you're numbers are totally rad, maybe they'll look at it as moxy rather than as hubris or an inability to follow directions.  Either way, I'm on pins and needles (which does seem silly since I do not know you and our lives most likely have nothing to do with one another).

Apparently you can't trust your exboyfriend to do what he's promised to do (i.e. check my mailbox periodically so it doesn't get too full and 'cause them to return mail even though he lives ten minutes away from the student center and is English [and is therefore responsible]).

Everyone in the states seems to be under the impression that, even though I have no money, I won't scrape together the duckets to fly back to the U.S. and start kicking ass.

Relax, you only took the test 6 days ago.  Your test is probably sitting in a box somewhere in Newton and no has touched it since Saturday.  When the scores come out, you can expect to start getting things in the mail but schools aren't going to learn of your LSAT before you do.  Good luck on getting a high score though.

Your application for admission to Yale Law School has been received and is currently in process.  We will contact you again when your application is complete and ready for review.

We thank you for your application and appreciate your interest in Yale Law School.

This is not good.  It's, in fact, as bad as when I received an email from Northwestern about my interview around 1am.

It's bad because from 3pm to an ungodly hour I'm chained to my computer in the hopes of law school email news.  I took solace in the fact that no one works on the weekends.  It's a strictly M-F gig.  I should have known Yale would be different.  I'm glad they let me know.  And I'm glad they requested my report.  But couldn't have have waited until Monday and left me wallowing in the belief that my weekends could be my own?

Do you think they *really* appreciate my/our interest(s)?  Hmm...

Sure they do.  They want everyone to apply so that they can get the best possible class AND the best possible selectivity rating.   ;)

I haven't even sent in my app yet, so I figure I'm safe from being dinged until then anyway.   :-\

That's an assumption with no supporting evidence.  Not that a ding is coming your way, but maybe right now the Yale adcomms are browsing LSN and LSD for people to ding before they are even out of the gate.  You say, "But I've never heard of that happening to anyone?"  But, really, who's going to admit being rejected from a place before they've even applied?

Fodder for thought.

That's a good point.  I may be dinged in the next couple of days, for all I know.  And if I am, I won't tell any of you, 'cause I'll be too mortified.

Hey- I'm new to the thread.  You guys seemed just as anxious as I am, so I figured I'd post.  I've received waivers from Baylor, SMU,Columbia, Indiana, and Miami. . . and invitations to apply from some others.

P.S. I've been hearing a lot about "yield protecting" can someone explain to me what that is exactly?

thanks,

At least you don't go to Columbia.  How pissed was I when I received that email?  And I gave my dean her stuff in July.  She could ball it up, toss it out the window and it would stand a good chance of landing in an adcomm's salad.  So why hasn't it gotten there yet?

I've never heard anybody mention them, and I have heard people say that they don't.  But that's a lot of "people say" and "I've heard," so it doesn't actually resemble real information.

Yeah, getting "merit" waivers would be nice.  I hope my LSAT is high enough.  But I already have the LSAC waiver and many schools have it automatically in the system, so maybe I'll never find out.  That's sad to me.

BTW, Sugersh, I'm sure someone is hating you for being "sad" to only get a Northwestern fee waiver.  I understand what you're saying, but...

Title: Yale Chat Invite
Post by: TXcal on October 12, 2005, 06:00:27 PM
I'm not sure if this counts as mail.  Earlier today, Yale had an online chat for students who had identified Yale as a school they were interested in and were Hispanic/Latino.  I think maybe 15-20 different people dropped by throughout the one-hour period.  A couple 2Ls and an admissions Dean were there taking questions.  Unfortunately, most of the questions were the type that could be answered by reading the application material, frequenting LSD, or Google.  But there it is.  ::)

Some factoids I gleaned: 
*  YLS student body is 10% Hispanic (includes Mex-Am, Puerto Rican)
*  TONS of public-sector work opportunities throughout 3 years there
*  About 20 slots of each incoming class are folks who deferred the previous year or two, but about that many choose to defer in each incoming class, so it usually balances out.
*  When pressed for a GPA number (not by me), someone diplomatically said that most students had a GPA above 3.25
*  They do not start reading apps until the start of November

The current students and admissions staff were really nice and patient--even in response to what I would think are aggravating questions.  I hear that these sorts of chats occur for various groups of applicants and are staggered throughout the admit season, so expect to hear more about it, I imagine.

I'll be 22 when I matriculate.  The idea of being a runt on campus (age-wise) isn't all that appealing to me. 

I will matriculate at law school (if all goes well) at the ripe old age of 24.

Not, I think, a major difference socially, although spending a couple of years working does mean getting out of the habit of sleeping until ten and drinking until 2, so that's something, I guess.

No Northwestern Fee Waiver, but an invitation to a "Diversity" reception in Midtown Manhattan.  They know I'm in Paris, so they'll realize not to be offended by the fact that I'm not going to go, right?

I think they probably realize that for a variety of reasons people won't necessarily be able to attend.

Unless they're very, very insecure.  Which is always a possiblity.

Ok, this isn't mail that I just received, but it is something I got in the mail, so I feel it counts.

I just went to try out the "interactive CD-ROM" that NYU sent me.  I double clicked on the Mac icon, and lo and behold, it wouldn't open, because it's an OS 9 program.  Have they really not updated in the last five years?

They had sent me the same thing months back too. Vandy waiver makes the second "good" school waiver I've gotten, but still not one that I'm actually applying to.

The Cornell DVD was super awesome, actually.  It even let you choose your own background music.

So, apparently I almost received unsolicited mail from Duke (NC, which means I won't be applying, but still it's cool...).  Almost because, for the second time, a law school notified me that mail was returned to its offic "undeliverable."  I'm pissed now because the address I gave them is correct, only that it doesn't have the "Columbia University" in the address.  In all the time I've been at Columbia, I've never included that, nor have I ever failed to receive mail that I was expecting (saying that it's possible that mail I wasn't expecting did not manage to get to me for this very same reason).  It's the only reason I could think mail would be returned.  But really, why now?  Could this have not become a problem last year?  Or in May?  Why now?  When I'm applying to law school and too many thousands of miles away to take care of the problem?

Now I have to send an email to all of the law schools explaining this problem and hoping to god they don't think I'm a dink for getting my address wrong (even though I DID NOT get it wrong).

I think there is someone new to the post office in NYC who is sorting all of the mail for the UWS and does not know that Columbia has 1) it's own zip code and 2) does not have streets on the label.

@#!*.

Yeah, no, this is the first it's ever been a problem, to the best of my knowledge.  It's only been two schools so far that have said anything, and both were returned for different reasons, so I can't be sure of anything yet.  But since they both said something, I imagine if it happens again whatever school will let me know, and if it does happen again, then I'm going to send out an email to all of my schools letting them know what's up.

This is a real dumb question, so don't hate on me too much, but did you guys have your lsat scores back before the schools started sending you information, and did you just check "allow schools to see my information" on LSAC?
I was just wondering, b/c I hadn't gotten aything yet (although I just let schools see my info a few days ago)
Thanks for your help

If you just let schools see your info a few days ago, that's why you haven't gotten anything yet.  They have no other way to know about you, and I'm sure it takes a little while for the information to get from LSAC to the schools.  Plus, most schools send information on the basis of LSAT scores, so if you just got one yesterday, the schools are only now putting you on their lists.

Depends.  I changed both addresses to my current place because I want all mail to come here.

Sadly, no.  But maybe they send a different one out to the gay boys.  It does reveal that "the often traumatic process of coming out to classmates is often met with a response like, 'That's cool - where did you want to go to lunch?'"

the fee waivers would come to the mailing address you put under LSAC my page. If you have put down a different address on your application, all the mails regarding the application would go there.

This was my first LSAT and I also just got an email from W&M with a full fee waiver (now I'll apply).  When I toured Georgetown the assistant dean of admissions said they receive the LSAT scores a few weeks after we do so I am confused by the timeline.  Of course, she also thought her school required Dean's Certification letters as part of the application (they don't) so maybe I'm not the one confused.

I see... thanks for the info!  This is all happening so much faster than I thought.  Two schools I applied to on Saturday had already requested my reports by like 9:30 this morning... on a Monday!  Fast fast fast

Long time lurker, first time poster. I don't think the fee waivers can be based entirely on LSAT, or some of us are getting randomly dissed. I bet the schools at least look at GPA, and I have a theory (hope?) that they don't accept the self-reported one. My transcripts aren't in yet.

Oh Cardozo, your fee waiver means so much to us one and all
It makes us feel better about ourselves, more so than that waiver from Steton Hall

Your copy paper seems to be made of recycled glue
Oh Cardozo, your waiver is just one of many to flood our mail
Like Case Western, Pitt, and that school from which Thomas Jefferson hails
Oh Cardozo, and your fellow waiver-sending schools
We talk about you constantly online, even though most of us don't think you are so cool
It's plain to see we often take offense
When you refer to us as "prospective law student"
You do us a great service though, we must reiterate
Giving us further reason to delay our applications and continue to procrastinate

How could you have known that F.O.W.L. was involved? You must be my contact. Good, I need some backup on this one so let me bring you up to speed. Over the last few years, F.O.W.L. taken over every law school in the country. They were the ones who planted the zombies at LSAC, and now they are brainwashing the future lawyers of the world. All of the major players in F.O.W.L. occupy the T14. After my last attempt to raid the LSAC compound I have come up with a new plan, we will infiltrate the schools themselves and take all of F.O.W.L. down at once. How? We will send our people in as prospective students. We know the top schools drool over URMs, and that they like people with soft factors like musical talent. So, I have called in some special agents:

(http://www2.ihype.cz/img/clanky/3%20mariachis.jpg)

We have already had some success with a trial run - this is what they left behind at Cooley:

(http://www.moviemail-online.co.uk/images/large/desperado.jpg)

Luckily, Cooley is of such low importance to F.O.W.L. that they didn't even notice the damage. Now that you know the plan, go gather your forces and we can plant them throught the T14 over the next few months. Further instructions will follow.

My lamest spam yet, from William and Mary (no surprise, I picked this one out of my junk mail box). And I quote:
"Dear History Major:

If you are looking for a law school that combines your interest in becoming a
lawyer and your interest in history, please consider William & Mary Law School.
Legal education at our Law School began in 1779 at the urging of Thomas
Jefferson.  As a member of William & Mary's Board of Visitors, Jefferson
believed that aspiring lawyers should be taught in a university setting not only
to be excellent lawyers but also to be leaders of their communities, state and
nation.  This commitment to become "citizen lawyers" still holds true today.
George Wythe (a great lawyer, teacher and statesman of this country's
Revolutionary Era) was then hired to begin legal training at William & Mary,
with one of his first students being John Marshall, who later became the Chief
Justice of the United States Supreme Court.  You can become a part of this great
Law School as it moves into the 21st century with such august origins.  We would
encourage you to view our web site, www.wm.edu/law/ to find o!
ut more about our Law School as well as to arrange a visit and tour by calling
(757) 221-3785.  We look forward to meeting you.

I got a similar "personalized" one from W&M that referred to my having attended "one of the best Liberal Arts schools in the country." I was pretty flattered by that statement, but unless it's coupled with a waiver...

Also got Illinois today by e-mail and George Mason the other day via snail mail.

Hi, I'm new to the board...I started reading and got hooked.

email fee waivers so far, I took the Oct LSAT:

oct 31 University of Illinois
oct 28 Pacific McGeorge, Univ of Arizona
0ct 27 Univ of Pitt, Georgetown (applying)
Oct 26 Case Western, Temple
oct 24 Notre Dame
Oct 20 Washington and Lee
Oct 18 Univ of St. Thomas

I got a mail one from George Mason that I'm using, and I think a few others came snail mail. I'll go thru them when I get home from work but this is good cause now I have the email ones organized. A bunch of these schools I'm only not applying to because of location...but I guess it's no surprise that the boston-dc-ny located schools I'm focused on aren't doing too many waivers cause they might have more applicants? Not sure though.

Apparently my school decided that studying abroad was a great chance to ruin my life = send all of my mail back to sender.

Even though I told the mail center I'd be abroad numerous times (including a face to face conversation with the head of mail services) and that I'd have a friend constantly checking my box, no, they still decided to go ahead and just not accept mail for me (save for a few things that have managed to slip through the cracks).

So if any school is reading this and you sent me an invitation to apply or a viewbook or something... ANYTHING... try emailing it to me.

At any rate, no mail for me.

I think there would be little point in them asking for your "current" address and your "permanent" address if they only defaulted to the latter.  Especially since they also ask until when the current address is active.

So, not knowing for certain, I'd wager that things will go to your current address until you state otherwise (either on your application or in a written statement).  OR if for some reason your current address does not work and stuff is returned to the school, then they might probably use the permanent address.

I can def. understand not wanting to pay the fee, especially since you'll be paying later.  I didn't mean to trash the school, so sry if it came across like that.  I just don't know anything about it and think Texas is a bit too warm for my taste.  But it's always nice to get some lovin from a school!  ;D

your application so I can make a stronger case for you with the faculty
readers.  I'll give you a call sometime in the next day or so at (my number) (the number that is in your file).  Please let me know if you'd
rather I call you at a different number, or if you are going to be hard
to reach at certain times.

George Mason snail mail greeting card with fee waiver.

I got that fee waiver from George Mason also.  Only thing is, I have a 155/3.58.  There is no chance they will accept me.  Why the heck would they send me a waiver if they are just going to reject me.  It kind of pissed me off to be honest.

Dear Sugersh

I just read your file and am very impressed.  Before I send it to the
admissions committee, I want to ask a few questions about some things in
your application so I can make a stronger case for you with the faculty
readers.  I'll give you a call sometime in the next day or so at (my number) (the number that is in your file).  Please let me know if you'd
rather I call you at a different number, or if you are going to be hard
to reach at certain times.

Best regards,

Toby W. Stock
Assistant Dean for Admissions
Harvard Law School

I just got this email as well! Sugarsh, Curly, have you already spoken to Toby Stock? What did he ask you? ... Wow, I'm nervous.

I emailed them a while ago (before they set out the waviers this cycle) and asked if they offered merit-based waivers.  The response was yes and it was LSAT-score depended.  When I told them my LSAT score they emailed me saying my fee was waived.  So if you want to apply, send them an emai.  Your numbers are way better than mine.

But if it helps, I do not think that they gave out any merit-based ones this year if you look at the fee waiver threads here.

Oh, corky, no prob.  i kinda wished I asked more LS about fee waivers, but I didn't want to send an email w/o some other reason.  When I sent the email to Cardozo I had some Qs about one of their clinics.  This process is getting so expensive.  I do not wanna add up all that I spent so far.

I got a postcard from Tulane with a "Before" and an "After" picture, referring presumably to Katrina.  However, they're the same picture.  Literally.  The cloud in the background has been changed a little, but every leaf on both the trees in the shot are in the exact same position relative to each other and to the building.  No way does that happen over a span of an hour of calm weather, let alone after a hurricane.

Don't get me wrong, it's great that they're able to get running again so quickly, and obviously they'd want to make that clear to prospective applicants, and this was probably a good way to emphasize that.  I just thought it was funny that they seem to imply that the pictures are from before and after the hurricane, when clearly they're not.

On the fee waiver and invite for apps note, my mailbox got stuffed today, mostly from schools there's no chance in hell I'd attend (mostly because they are North of the Mason-Dixon line and too cold). Western New England, WUSTL, Tulane, George Mason (this fee waiver I'm probably going to use) Florida Coastal, Ave Maria, Miami. Western New England sent a 60+ page glossy nice viewbook that must have cost some serious cash, pretty nice.

i got the tulane postcard today, and yes, it was very very silly.  and almost a little bit distasteful.  if i were a displaced N.O. resident that lost their home and i got that postcard, i'd want to send one back.  that perhaps had a picture of my destroyed house on it.  before and after.

but maybe they are just trying really hard to compensate for what must be a very difficult admissions season.  if it is very likely that their applications will drop way down, maybe we should cut them some slack.

I got the same email as you did, and then what I think happened is he forwarded it to someone to send me the official fee waiver email. The "To:" line in it wasn't even to me. Don't worry, I'm sure you'll get in, Shellbell. :)

Rewarded for slacking on sending out applications for anything other than my targets...
I didn't plan on really applying to reaches, but since they're free I guess I'll apply to Washington and Lee and George Mason. I also figured I should get a fee waiver from Miami and that paid off, so my total application fees so far =$60 (Florida and Florida State, which don't send waivers). Sweet. Semi-underachievers sometimes do get paid off for their slacking. Now I'm up to 6 schools to apply to.

Well, I took a class with one of them and she was very, very smart and funny, with the dry sense of humor I love--she also brought pizzas and snacks for us every week, so that rocked.

I've also seen one of the deans argue pretty heatedly with town Police to defend her students...it was actually kind of awe-inspiring. At one point he said something along the lines of "well, we have probable cause and if you knew what that was..." and she stopped him and said "Oh, I KNOW what probable cause is, thank you." Or something like that. It was AWESOME.

Actually, Harvard's viewbook is really small and thin. Much different from the normal 20 page giant viewbooks other schools publish. So you really should get excited if you get a thick envelope from them.  ;)

Heads up, Michigan applicants!  I haven't been around much today, so I don't know if others have already been writing about this.  Forgive me if this is old news.

Today I received my first communication from Michigan (not for lack of secular humanist prayers, let me tell you), an email encouraging me to apply (no waiver :'().  Anyway, the point being that the email suggests that laggards like me apply as early as possible because Michigan plans to start making offers next week.  So good luck to all of you whose acts are together!

Actually, I've heard that Harvard sends out 50% real acceptances and 50% fake acceptances... they don't like kids feeling as though they've "arrived" or to be satiated... you should only get excited after calling the admissions office every day until they eventually tell you that you're accepted.

Someone needs to talk to W&L's marketing department...postcard today with this quote in a huge font:

"Fighting the death penalty in a leading state for executions."

Picture of W&L kids on the other side and a smaller quote from a professor:

"It's never been about being popular."

What the hell, are these guys trying to convince people not to apply or what?

Oh, also got Columbia love package with waiver today. I half considered using it until I realized I'd need a dean's cert from EVERY school I've been to...at this point in the game that isn't happening. Plus their form is crazy, the dean's cert. alone has more questions that most apps do, sheesh. Plus I don't think I'd live in NYC if you paid me...that is all.

I got a UVa waver, so I could make my uncle happy by applying to his alma matter.  But I don't think I'm going to do that.

Well, I'll take it off your hands then. UVa is the only t14 I haven't applied to. I might be swayed by a waiver though... whaddaya say, UVa?   :-*

Ask and ye shall receive. UVa waiver and viewbook today. Time to fill out another application...

Do any of you feel really guilty about throwing out 90% of the viewbooks you receive.  Some of them I don't even open and I feel so bad about it.  The Univ of the Pacific compilation of viewbooks was so large I couldn't bear to throw it in the trash.  It's sitting on my desk... still in the shrink wrap

I'm totally with you- it's like they make them really pretty just to up the guilt factor. Still though, there's no way in hell I'd end up at some of these schools (mainly because of location- not solely academics) so I try to recycle them and not feel too guilty.

I think it is sort of common that schools generally want people to leave the state. There are some exceptions to this, like state schools that try to have a high number of in-staters, but in general they want people to go out and explore the world i think.

I don't know, but she made reference to a partner, so the point is moderately moot...

And maybe they actually have a bunch of different people signed up to write these, so they're going out at different times.  Or, y'know, maybe their gaydar is just really, really bad.

It said I received a full tuition waiver for non-resident tuition and a stipend to cover the rest of in-state tuition.  I talked about it with a friend and they seem to have gotten that backwards ('cause why give me a stipend that's several thousand dollars AND  full tuition?).

Things I'm currently pissed about despite the fact that I have no rightful reason to be pissed given that the news I received last week:

1) That I'm not complete at Harvard, Yale or USC.
2) That Harvard and Yale have both been completing people who applied well after me.

*No, I stand no chance of getting in because being Black doesn't overcome everything  ;) (this is, btw, not an opportunity for you to counter my position on my chances), but I'd still like having had my shiz together early on in this game to count for something.

3) That I have received no special emails from UChicago - not about being gay, not about this magical bulletin board.

I had to vent and I didn't want to make a whole separate thread about it -- and it's all essentially mail related anyway.

Something from Drexel and an e-mail from Samford thanking me for my interest (ummmm...?).

Also received large white enevlope with a UF acceptance letter inside.

And I agree with Corky.  While many of us admired your throwing an app the was of NE because you like its program despite its ranking, I don't think any of us doubted you'd get into Harvard.  And while there are many reasons people turn Harvard down, not one, I'm willing to bet, is to go to a school ~80 spots lower (not that rankings are the most important thing in the world, but I think within a given range they probably do mean something).

Yeah, especially since Su is set on PI and it's a really competitive field where the higher-ranked school will certainly help.

Not to the AdComms! To the person who is borderline for NE, and might get put in the hold pile when Su's file glows so brightly they have to quickly put it in the Accepted room in order not to blind themselves.

Hey Darkwing...

I was looking around the board and I found a thread about someone getting dinged by Quinnipiac.

After he revealed his numbers (149, 3.1), you responded - "when are you signing up for the special olympics?"

http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,47482.0.html (http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,47482.0.html)

Since you've been on this thread a lot, seemed like an active and helpful member of LSN, and lots of people have been interacting with you here, I though this would be the right forum to let you explain yourself.

Just wondering why you'd write something like that.

If you don't want to explain it to everyone, feel free to send me a PM.

But after opening it up it was just some lettes describing financial assistance, how to get it, what types, etc. Why must they play with my heart in such a brutish manner?

Email from Michigan saying something about how they don't want to ruin the surprise but they sent me a package a while ago...

I got the same one. Is the "big packet" of which they speak simply the acceptance letter, or something else? They said "a little over a week ago..." but I received the acceptance more than two weeks ago.

I thought maybe they had sent me a full scholarship or something.

i don't like reading newspapers because:

  2) they're not as current as the internet
  3) the ink gets on my fingers, then sometimes spreads from there

I like reading newspapers because:
  1) I can take them with me on my hour-long morning commute
  2) I like to up their circulation numbers 'cause I think they're a better form of news than T.V.

Northeastern I think may be becuase I said I was interested in schools in Massachusetts on the LSAC thing, but I didn't get anything from Harvard.

apply to uconn.  you have at least a 25% chance of acceptance.  it's a tier 1 school.

also touro in suffolk county (east long island).  good shot there as well.

cuny is a good bet, especially if you've done public interest type of stuff.

UCONN wow that would be awesome, how do you think I actually have a chance there??! NO WAY!! there average LSAT is like a 160.  Again with the CUNY, I think i'll send it in on monday after I get a little bit more cash for apps. God I have soo many!

Yeah that's what I'm going to have to start doing on Monday it seems.  It's just that I assumed they were busy today and waited until basically closing to call, so they said they couldn't wait for me to come over today.

Part of me feels like I shouldn't have to go over there...it's basically lazy students (the hall director got back to me and said they are supposed to deliver whatever mail they get), but another part of me really wants to hear back.  I'm sure come 4 o'clock on Monday I'll be walking over to get my mail if it's not already in my box.

Cornell acceptance-- Dean's Scholarship (up to $30,000 tuition and fees IN ADDITION TO NEED, WHOA) invitation. The essay prompt's pretty interesting- a 500-worder on giving advice to a college freshman about how to choose a major. Original, I'd say.

Hey guys,

  Talked to the Dean of Admissions at my #1 choice law school and he said that he was in need of documentation of a medical diagnosis before the Committee can finalize their decision, but that their decision will make me happy.  Then he said that it should probably make me happy, assuming I liked the area.  I am guessing Im in right?  Also, my file was on his desk and he is the Dean of Admissions, so can I assume that he was almost ready to sign an acceptance letter?

UVa letter informing me that they recieved my application and fee waiver and giving me the login for admitweb.  Of course, they sent this to me in an email a week and a half ago. Why on earth would anyone waste the postage to tell me that they've recieved, but not even completed, my app?  It's cruel to send someone a thin envelope from a school when they're waiting on decisions.

I don't know how many H accepts, but I don't think it would hurt if they don't have a limit.  It might also not make a difference, but it will show your continuing interest. 

I'd only not send it if they strictly say they only want three letters. 

I'll have to see how many they accept.  Thanks.

Quite the opposite. It's a shrewd move on their part because it makes people who would never consider applying to the school send in an app, which they can subsequently ding and thereby increase their selectivity rating, which boosts their rankings.

Yeah, I'm almost completely on the Penn-Wagon after that packet. I mean, it was always a top choice of mine, and "visiting" earlier this month to retake the LSAT, and that turning out to be a good decision, all served to just make me fall further in love...

FINALLY got the BC Letter.

A nice, slim deferral to add to my collection.  It's so peculiar -- I totally saw getting deferred from all of my EA schools AT BEST.  GULC stands at the only exception.  I applied to 4 EA schools figuring that I'd hear from them first, being EA, and that would tell me if I should apply to more schools.  And if I only had the 1 for 4 EA results that I have now and not the other schools, I would totally have started cranking out more applications.  But I've gotten into great schools regular decision before even hearing back from all of my EA schools.  I guess it just goes to show you that at any poing this process can and will throw you for a loop.

Vandy flew a friend of mine out last application season. Apparently it is not uncommon if they think an admitted student is truly interested.  But usually they do it when upon request from the student.  Indeed they must really want you to come there since the offered up front.

Seriously.  We're very organized.  We'd never send things to the wrong address.  I think it's awfully "straight" of them.

Three days ago I made a list of things to be done before school starts in January with law school.
Two days ago I wrote and revised (with the help of good friends) deferral letters to be sent to Cornell, Penn and BC.
I also made a chart of all of my school's fin aid requirements and deadlines and extra things, and even posted it on the Fin Aid board.
Yesterday I divided my schools into 2 groups (and then sub-groups) based on what they require for fin aid and what they already know of me based on having applied for fee waivers and wrote sub-group-specific mass emails to be sent after Jan 1st.
Today I went back to my original checklist and put in links to all of these letters and emails so that when the appropriate date arrives, I just have to click on the appropriate bullet in the checklist to open the document and print/send it.

We're very organized.  We're practically Swiss.

I was a personal assistant to this mildly successful real estate empiress (is that a word?) in NYC.  But she didn't fall in line with my organizational skills, so ultimately it didn't work out.  But we're still friends and when law schools tell me that I have to pay the full sticker price, I'm going to turn to her.  And if she says no, I'm going to kick myself for not having embezzled when I had free access to her millions of dollars and when she'd have me write out my own pay checks  ;).

In case anyone's interested, I got a reimbursement check from Chicago yesterday for the app fee.  I applied about two weeks before the fee waiver came and mailed my fee waiver in immediately (along with a second signed copy of the certification letter).  Just thought others who did the same thing may like to hear...

I would just love to go to a place where, for once in my life, I could study for the sake of studying -- I think it would be a lot more rewarding.

Agreed.  Particularly with high performing, highly intelligent people, grades can become really annoying.  Not having grades allows you to liberate yourself from the standards of a grader, at which point you have only your own standards to live up to. 

I find the assignment of grades somewhat belittling actually.  I know I am motivated to learn, think, create, and generally do really great things.  To me, at least at my university, grades are what keep me concerned about classes where the instructors and students are idiots.  If not for things like grades and graduation requirements, I would get fed up with many classes and just never go back.  If I were interested in the subject matter, I'd just read a book on it.

I often find that grades take the place of education.  For example, I am really interested in microeconomics, but I stopped going to my intermediate micro class after the midterm because the grades were based on rankings and I could outperform everyone else in the class just by reading the textbook and showing up to the test.  If a professor had just said to me, "Go learn as much as it takes to satiate you about microeconomics, and I'm here to answer and questions or discuss any ideas you have," I have no doubt that I would have learned substantially more.

What appeals to me about Yale are the small class sizes.  I feel like I have gotten to know good professors at my UG pretty easily even in large classes because I participate in discussions and ask probing questions, but in a place like Harvard with 49 other brilliant people who are just as motivated as I am, I might just blend in.

Harvard does Honors Pass, Pass, Low Pass, and Fail.  I've also heard Stanford is similar, but I haven't checked into it since I'm not applying there.

I think Yale's transcripts are similar to that, except they may only have three categories or two instead of four.

Um, what other schools don't do grades?  As far as I know for certain, Yale is the only one.  (I've heard rumors about Northeastern, but they're conflicting.) 

MY personal favorite PENN doesn't. They have a pass fail policy and the student body is exceptional in helping each other do the work. I would love to go there, but my LSAT wouldn't give me a chance.

Shows what I know about these schools-- i.e., almost nothing.

How does grading work at Yale, then?  Just completely absent?  Pass/Fail?

I've only heard of Yale and Berkeley having no grades. And the thing is, I was talking about Yale's appeal as opposed to Harvard (which practiceboy IS applying to). The no grades thing is definitely one of the biggest factors, along with smaller class size and slightly better loan forgiveness.

Also, have to agree with Lily--studying for the sake of learning sounds really appealing to me right now.

Nevermind.  You might be surprised to know that a Google search for "Yale Law School" and "Grading Policy" turned up the answer to my question.

It's definitely Pass/Fail first semester, and Honors/Pass/Low Pass/Fail after that.

Fair enough.  The LSAT and GPA 25/75 are important as well, because I feel I can perform best around people who are at my same level.  Thus, if Yale were ranked 14th, but still had one of the highest LSAT/GPA ranges, then that would be a reason I would be inclined to choose it over another school with a higher ranking and lower ranges.

I will grant however, that within the top few schools intelligence (to the extent the LSAT measures it) and work ethic can't vary enough to be really perceivable.

Duke Law fee waiver...too late, I already applied! And another Duke viewbook, though they already sent me one.

And two big envelopes from Yale that got me just a tiny bit excited. I opened them and found two recruitment letters, one for ethnic minorities and one for gay students. The minority letter came with a need-based fee waiver application, while the gay letter did not. (Racial profiling, anyone?) And two viewbooks, even though they already sent me one and I already applied. The letters say "Our records indicate that you have not applied to Yale Law School," so apparently the letters took a long time in processing, as by the date printed on the recruitment letters, I had already gotten an "application received" letter from YLS.

Also, a bunch of mail from TTTs. Some viewbooks, some fee waivers, and some plain junk mail without any viewbook or fee waiver. Brooklyn gets a (dis)honorable mention for calling their fee waiver "a holiday gift."

Thanks Jason. It is in the same general neighborhood as Spiff's, +/- 15K. It still hasn't quite sunk in. I have been debating the debt vs. prestige issue since the beginning of the application process. Now, I will likely go to NU unless a similar offer comes along from an equally good school in a place where I could afford to buy my family a house to live in during school. Even then, I may still find my self in Chicago for 3 years. My interviewer fueled my already serious interest during our interview.  ;) I believe I would be quite happy there.

Spiff, did your offer have a specific name? My offer was named after a former Dean, but I did not see it in the Merit Based Scholarship spreadsheet that is on NU's site.

Well ladies and Gentlemen. I'm afraid it is about that time again.....   
I just took my usual trip to the mailbox and noticed a letter from Stetson University College of Law. Small white envelope. I figured it was a decline and my hunches were correct. I was declined for full-time addmission. Although, I am still concidered for part-time. I called them and they said that letters for full and part time are sent at different times. So I guess I still am in the runnings for part-time, but I am not expecting anything.

I'm really sorry about Stetson...you have a lot of people rooting for you, though!!!!

they should've totally let you in for full-time. Would you consider going PT?

I definitely think you should look into Vermont Law School. Susan Estrich mentioned it in her book and referred to it as a "sleeper" school. You could do a lot worse, according to her.

Beasley Scholar Award & acceptance from Temple. It's a pretty sweet deal - full tuition first year and 1/2 tuition second and third years. Damn financial aid, anyway. I filled out my FAFSA today, and I'm pretty sure that they calculate your EFC with a method somewhat analagous to the Roulette Wheel.

Too much crap from Brooklyn -- Jebus, I've already applied.  Court me after I'm in rather than filling my mail box.

Super Props to IU Bloomington for a cool mini-cd and to McGeorge for a nicely designed package.

Regular Props to Duquesne for a fact sheet on really primo paper and to UMinn for an interesting way to display the faces of the "people" at UMinn.

Grudging Half Props to Brooklyn for the cool black box with velcro.

And fee waivers from schools that I'd have liked to have known about months ago -- Negative Props to my friend who's job it was to scan my letters for fee waivers.

Doulbe Negative Props to Cornell for mentioning the fee waiver in a "P.S."

mcgeorge's was very nice indeed, but they prolly could've spent all that $$ into something else? I bet it cost ALOT of $$ to m ake them and send them out (heavy!)

btw, you must have been gone for a long time, those came in the fall I think  :)

"Thank you for your application to the University of Michigan Law School.  Because you went to great lengths to apply early in our season, we understand that you may feel some disappointment at not having received your answer yet.  We appreciate the anxiety that the law school admissions procedure causes and are therefore writing to update you on the status of your file.  Your file has been reviewed at least once by our staff and the admissions committee and we have found much to admire.  We have not yet, however, been able to render a decision, and are continuing to review your application file in the context of the greater applicant pool.  Our goal is to have all decisions made by the end of April, but most applicants will hear well before that time.  Please be assured that receiving this email does not mean you will not get an answer for three more months!  It simply indicates that we recognize you have been waiting patiently, and we appreciate that."

I guess they're thinking that they're being nice, but it really just freaked me out more than anything else. I've also gotten into higher-ranked schools already - just goes to show that the whole process is, to some degree, a crapshoot.

EDIT: It seems like most of us applied Regular Decision, so does this count as a deferral? It's basically telling us that we're still in the running, but they haven't made up their minds yet - didn't we all know this already without getting the email?
