aww thank you. yeah i got my applications in relatively late due to a hectic mid-semester (things sent out late november/early december) so i'm actually really surprised to be hearing anything at all this early.

though i'm still sobbing over harvard -- went complete w/o a phonecall email, so i'm guessing i'm in the "You Suck" pile. Boo!

Give it some time. That's what I'm thinking to myself right now.

I was wondering the same thing.  Not sure if it is true - but if applications are down, maybe schools are waiting longer to get a better/bigger sense of their applicant pool?  I've applied to a couple schools where LSN data from last year indicates that they already began accepting, yet this year, no one has indicated a decision.

i hope you're right. call me, tStock! i will try to be interesting!

(mildly tangentially related Q -- i just found out that HLS is having a conference on something i've researched and would like to be my academic/law focus [islamic models of microfinance] in April, and i didn't even know they were getting big on this topic. is it way, way too early to pop over a brief e-mail saying how interested i am in the project? should i do so if i get held?)

My friend on a student admissions committee says her law school is making more decisions later this year. This is because of the new LSAT policies (and how they'll affect the rankings). They want to give the December retakers a chance before they fill up so much of their class like in previous years.

It sounds logical, and the source is reliable, so I believe it.

GM called my cell - but it's possible (I can't remember for sure) that that's the only number I put down on applications.  If I put two, it was cell and work.

http://www.admissionsconsultants.com/lawschool/blog.aspx (http://www.admissionsconsultants.com/lawschool/blog.aspx)

Scroll down and read "Lower J.D. Application Volume Could Mean Fewer Admission Offers".  It looks like with applications being down and this new LSAT policy, schools are going to wait to make decisions, and then when they do, a higher % of people will be waitlisted than before.

Remember, it's in admissions consultants' interest to scare students about the application process -- if you're not sure you'll get in where you want to, you're more likely to pay them money to boost your chances. So, I take everything I read on these sites (interesting though it is) with a grain of salt.

No; I actually had the same question. I probably looked in the packet 3 or 4 times for it. I am assuming they will send it later in an email so that they keep in touch. I was considering emailing them, but haven't been concerned enough to take initiative  :)

Sorry Data I don't; more out of laziness than a fear of sharing stats. I have a 166 with a 3.9+ GPA. So far, ND, Minn, and William and Mary are my best options.

Do I need to remind you that Vandy and Michigan love you so very much and have been loving you for a very long time while ignoring the rest of us?

But also, I love ya! if that makes you feel any better :)

I wonder if I'm a really perplexing candidate because I've been complete at some schools where, numbers-wise, I have a really good chance (W&M, W&L, etc.) for a long time now. I hope my PS doesn't suck.

awww thank you...shoots the love right back at cha

I'm sure your PS is fine...this is the time now, pretty soon decisions will be rolling in for all of us hopefully.  And hopefully, we'll get mostly good news. :-\

I would definitely worry about this. Michigan doesn't get a lot of applications so when they do get some they don't really know how to process them. I would send them an email tonight and call them first thing in the morning. You could also find out the name of the admissions secretary and then you could look up her name in the Ann Arbor phone book and call her at home tonight.

Just kidding...yeah, they take a long time to request stuff.

I don't mind, and no, it didn't.  I have yet to return the UVA financial aid form, but have done the FAFSA.  Not sure if either has any bearing...

Thanks for the response.:)  For merit scholarships, I don't think you have to return the FAFSA, so I wouldn't think it would have bearing for the Dean's Scholarships some people receive.

I didn't get an acceptance today, but I felt like I did.  I received a package from Cornell (larger than anything else I've received even to offer admission) today.  This thing is mammoth and is made all the more so through the use of a cardboard sleeve. 

Thanks Cornell, I almost forgot what it feels like to be accepted somewhere :)

My application went complete at WUSL the first week of December and was given a fee-waiver. Since that time I have received four emails inviting me to apply to the program and offering me a fee-waiver. I have also received two invitations to apply in the mail and numerous other little cards that I just throw away. I finally emailed the admissions office yesterday and asked them to stop sending this stuff. They were very apologetic and weren’t quite sure why I was getting all the crap and asked me to send it back to them so they could determine why I was getting it???? I assume they want it back so they can send it off to someone else.

Britomraz, did you status checker ever change?  Sorry if you already posted that somewhere, but I didn't see it.  Thanks!

Maybe... I never checked the NYU status checker.

Sorry, I mean the UVA status checker.

UVA sent me an email each time my status changed.

Indiana Boomington. 46 K in scholarships.

Did they give you that number? Or did they just say full scholarship?

Mine only said full tuition, no stipend, so I'm curious if they're giving out living stipends as well. Which sounds really petty, but, well yeah pretty much.
I guess mine's not full scholarship then. It's just dean's scholarship. And actually it amounts to 43 K over three years, but i have to be in top third of the class. I think i'm gonna pass...

I wouldn't mind if every school was silent the whole way through; I hate using status checks every hour out of compulsiveness. Anyway, I just wanted to let others know so they wouldn't think NYU hates them.

ND is weird as hell with admissions this cycle. People above, below, and at my index got accepted/deferred, and I was rejected.

I think they're actually looking at the (dreaded/beloved) soft factors everyone speaks of.

It's because the ND adcomms looked at your application and decided that you're obviously a Trojan at heart...and they're still smarting from the football game this year (and last, and maybe even the year before...etc.) ;)

Seriously though, congrats! and, of course, Fight on!

Very true :) I called all the schools that hadn't updated my status this afternoon and figured after talking to all the admissions people that the EARLIEST I would hear ANYTHING would be the first week of February. Sure enough, I got home, checked the mail, walked to my apartment without sorting out the junk mail first, and almost missed the letter when I put it into the "not junk mail" pile. Once I'd given up my OCD addiction it was restarted lol

No, I didn’t get a deferral from Michigan, I actually didn’t hear from them in more than a month.  I just got a regular acceptance letter from them.  There was also a handwritten note on my admission letter from one of the admissions people. Telling me they can put me in contact with current students if I want to.

Title: Re: Accepted TODAY !!
Post by: Hekkien on January 17, 2007, 02:58:03 PM
I hope this won't be considered off topic, but out of curiosity:

Have you noticed any pattern to the time of day email acceptances come in?  Have they tended to be in the morning or afternoon, or have they come after or before 9-5 hours?  Just curious.

Additionally, for anyone who has gotten a phoned acceptance, has it ever occurred in a message as opposed to them connecting with you?  I only ask because I noticed a call from one university I've applied to on my home phone, but there was no message.  For this particular university, I am not expecting an acceptance as they are my reach-of-all-reaches, but it did pique my curiousity.  

Again, sorry if this is a bit of a tangent.

I just did a search on Martindale and it seems like most lawyers doing intellectual property in the Portland area are from Lewis & Clark, but I dunno if that's your thing or not.

Has your status checker changed? Or should I stop bothering to check that sucker.

Also, if you don't mind, numbers, WE, etc?

No WE - applying straight out of undergrad

I hate status checkers in general.  At no point has a status checker eased my stress.  When they're at complete, I obsessively check them, waiting for them switch to the "decision."  Then, my ulcer steadily grows until the purported decision (sometimes in as quickly as 30 days) wings its way to my mailbox. 

I'd rather the good old days.  Where you shipped your stuff off into the mysterious blue, and then one day, a response came fluttering down from the sky.

Hehe.  I'm a little slow.  You got me thinking "What movie was I in?" for a second while my brain connected my screen name to Chicago the movie.

But if that movie was really about the school, then sign me up!  Jail babes are the hottest!

Congrats!  No money offer for me.  I was pretty excited on the phone so I don't remember much, but she said something about sending things out this Wednesday.  Maybe there will be scholarship info?  A little money from GW would really sweeten the deal for me.

I didn't get a phone call either, just an e-mail.

I just checked out GW's requirements for financial aid, and it makes me much less excited about this. You need to do PROFILE (is this similar to needsaccess? anyone know if it's free?), your complete taxes, as well as your parents complete taxes if you're under 30, plus FAFSA. Ugh.

PROFILE? WTF?

No new admission offers (apparently only 4 schools really liked me), but I got a scholarship offer from Marquette.  I'm 4/4 for scholarship offers, heh. :)

deedeeleigh: You asked me earlier in the cycle about whether I thought I'd get similar offers from schools I applied to 2 years ago.  If this helps at all, 2 years ago, Hamline gave me 8500/year.  This year, they offered me 22,800/year.  Pretty cool. :) (Then again, Pacific hasn't even gotten back to me yet, and I've been complete for over 2 months. . .we'll see how this works out soon enough for that school!).

Post by: Matokah on January 21, 2007, 12:45:22 AM

That's great news, congrats! I'm sure that softens the Michigan blow, though I am sorry to hear about that. I was a bit concerned about reapplying and schools taking it badly that you had withdrawn in the past, but looks like that hasn't affected you in any negative way. Good to know, and congrats again!

Yep, a scholarship offer the day before and day after a rejection is a nice fluffy, cushion to the blow that Michigan dealt.  I'm recovering quite nicely. :)

Little worried about Pacific, because I don't think I withdrew officially 2 years ago (I was so freaking sick that I don't even remember to this day).  We'll see if that comes back to bite me whenever I hear back from them.

See, that's interesting.  The email said I was accepted last week, but my letter got delayed and is en route.  So, I'm thinking around 01-16-2007 was the official decision date, and I officially applied on 12-11-2006, with my file complete by 12-26-2006.

So, around a month, more or less.

Hehehehe ...  not going to live it down.

Nope.  :-*

I suppose it was considered a deferral -- it was a deferral from the Early Decision program, not the defer/hold email that non-eders got earlier in the cycle...

They also got the new 173 LSAT score in between the deferal and the acceptance (from 167), so that could have played a role too.  And I submitted a Why Michigan essay the week or so before my acceptance, so that could have freshened me up a bit, too...

Ya' think?  ;D

Thanks!! I am grateful that my first decision wasn't a rejection. That would have made the process even more stressful than it already is. It is nice to know that I have the option of going to a strong program. San Diego is far from being my "worst case scenario" option as well, so I am RELIEVED!

Thanks Cookie!  Can't get loans as a foreigner, at least the kind where payments are deferred.  Can't afford other kind without working. :-\  I don't have to have a full scholarship, but it has to be pretty darn close to one, especially to get me to move and deal with the hassle of selling the house, husband finding a job, etc.  UT's offer isn't enough for me to afford them, and none of the other schools are coming close to full tuition either.  But I haven't heard from all of them, so there's hope.

In at Penn State. I was actually worried about YP at this school. Several applicants with significantly lower numbers who applied after I did had already been admitted. With very good $$ PSU will be in the mix. I realize that my numbers are pretty high for PSU, but take a look at the amount of money they have been spending on improvements. Look very closely at their faculty. With new adds, their faculty is equivilant to many T14 schools. I see Dickinson making major moves up the food chain in the future. Now - show me some $$ love.

I've heard that many lawyers in the central PA area are angry at PSU for splitting the campuses, and potentially leaving the Carlisle campus. 

I don't say this to scare anyone, but just to give some more info to those considering PSU.  I sure hope it doesn't affect employment opportunities, networking, etc. because of this.

Post by: kristen823 on January 24, 2007, 12:01:17 PM
Hmm I didn't apply to PSU, primarily because it was in Carlisle. My parents live near there, but across the Maryland line. It's no place for a law school- I'm not sure they even have a Walmart. I couldn't believe their law school was in Carlisle. If not in State College, fine, and there's a lot of law schools in the Philly area, but why not Harrisburg? Pittsburg? I think moving the law campus is a good decision- but you said splitting... are they making 2 law campuses a la Rutgers?

Professor Ball at Penn State is a leading scholar on GLBT issues.  And the new improvements are quite lofty.  But I don't believe its geographical location will allow it to be a top flight school.  Virginia is the only T-14 in a remote location and it has been an established University for so long that location factors in less.

They're bitter at Dickinson "giving up" and being bought by PSU.  They're holding onto the fact that they're "Dickinson Alums" not "Penn State Alums".  Given that, it would makes sense to them to abandon Dickinson. They'll be mad at Big PSU, but not the students who chose to go to Dickinson law school.

As for a campus in Carlisle, that is originally where Dickinson was located and where the Dickinson undergrad is located (unaffiliated with PSU).  It's not as though Penn State decided to build one there for the sake of it.  They bought/absorbed an already existing law school, and there aren't any reputable law schools in Harrisburg. The "split" people are talking about is contiuning to improve upon the Carlisle campus while building an additional campus at University Park.  They're not moving any campuses. 

Carlisle does have a Wal-Mart.  It's also the county seat, so plenty of legal opportunities there.  It's about 30 minutes from Harrisburg on the turnpike; it's not unheard of to study at DSL and commute to clerkship in Harrisburg.  DSL has been around for ages, so it's well established in the PA legal market.  It also has ties to the Army War College and local Naval and Army logistical centers.

I agree that with the amount of money that's being spent on that school, it will drastically improve in the future.  No idea though if these improvements will be better buildings and faculty or actually move them up in rankings.

Haha oh, goodness - yes, there is a Wal-Mart - in fact, there's even a TARGET! But as a lawyer, you hopefully won't be working at those places  ;) jk...seriously though, Carlisle is close to Harrisburg for state government options and other kinds of externships, and there really are things to do in Carlisle. I live in the area and would be happy to tell you all about Carlisle if you're interested. In my opinion, State College seems like a much worse place for a law student due to the lack of nearby externship opportunities, but that's just me.

I doubt not hearing yet is much to lose sleep over. Compared to other schools, Wash U seems to have sent out very few acceptances or rejections, so it looks like they are just taking their sweet time.

Regarding the address. I don't think it's just of a problem anyway. I'm sure you can call them up and ask them to change it on their computers. I doubt it will adveresly affect your chances. considering I found a grammar error in an e-mail from Harvard, even the best of us make mistakes now and then.  ;)

Do I have a prayer of hearing from ANY school by February 1st if all my apps went out between 1/3 and 1/15?  Everyday I come home and have like 5 envelopes from law schools and get all excited until I realize they're just brochures, usually from schools I have no interest in.

The worst is when a school you applied to sends you a BIG envelope marked TIME SENSITIVE MATERIALS and your heart starts racing that you got your first acceptance, only to find it's merely a brochure and a fee waiver for a fee you've already paid.

Ahh the application game.

6-8 week turnaround is either a myth or a joke.

I applied to 11 schools, all on the first day they'd accept (most in september), and I have still only heard from 5 of 11.  I am waiting for USC, UCLA, Berkeley, Texas, Georgetown, and Penn.

The ones I've gotten into so far are the schools I thought I had a very good chance of getting into.  The rest are the big ones I'm really waiting on.  I'm starting to think that they've put me aside in order to see what the rest of the pool looks like.

Needless to say, it is very frustrating.

yeah ... I don't have the lsat you have but (to sound perfectly arrogant) I was a little put off by their scholarship offer after then sent emails saying stuff about big money.  When out of state is 2x the in state tuition I would at least expect an out of state waiver to people with both numbers over the 75%.  Anyways, I withdrew from IU-B last night so hopefully that spot will go to someone who really wants it.  Their admissions letter said this cycle was shaping up to be one of the most competitive cycles ever.  Good luck to those who are still waiting.

Yeah you should have gotten more too with your GPA... I'll probably sleep on it for a few nights and withdraw at the end of the weekend, it seems like the courteous thing to do.

I wasted my mail check today on a BILL.  All the pent up excitement, hoping AT LEAST for Ave Maria's letter I already know is coming.  I even went to check the mail right when she started (Think me in my pjs, hair all over, and a big coat) I told her I was waiting for law school apps, so she wouldn't think I was stalking her or anything.  I calmly waited 45 minutes before trying again, and what's in there? A ridiculously expensive power bill. NOT EVEN ANY JUNK!  I think this is a conspiracy. They're torturing me!! UGH.

OK. I'm fine now....
I am tempted to apply to GWU though, they've been a dream of mine since high school when I stayed on their campus for a conference.  All this excitement is making me wish I would have just applied to see what would happen. That poor dean probably works 15 hours a day, 7 days a week!!

Thanks man, I  hope you get into GW too, you deserve it for all the GW-posting you do here.

Ditto. Where are you based Captain? I have not received anything from Emory yet.

New Jersey.

Wake is a great school (actually all of the schools I haven't heard from yet are pretty great), so I'm happy to be able to say that I haven't been rejected yet in 2007... 2006 was a bloodbath though.

Hmm I didn't apply to PSU, primarily because it was in Carlisle. My parents live near there, but across the Maryland line. It's no place for a law school- I'm not sure they even have a Walmart. I couldn't believe their law school was in Carlisle. If not in State College, fine, and there's a lot of law schools in the Philly area, but why not Harrisburg? Pittsburg? I think moving the law campus is a good decision- but you said splitting... are they making 2 law campuses a la Rutgers?


Haha oh, goodness - yes, there is a Wal-Mart - in fact, there's even a TARGET! But as a lawyer, you hopefully won't be working at those places  ;) jk...seriously though, Carlisle is close to Harrisburg for state government options and other kinds of externships, and there really are things to do in Carlisle. I live in the area and would be happy to tell you all about Carlisle if you're interested. In my opinion, State College seems like a much worse place for a law student due to the lack of nearby externship opportunities, but that's just me.

That is another big concern I have heard from lawyers...great minds think alike!  :)

I'm hearing from CLS via neither snail nor e-mail.  This is my new logic:

Waiting sucks.  Finding an empty mailbox compels you to wallow in the suckiness of waiting more.  Choosing not to check the mail for a few days entails the suckiness of waiting, but the empowerment of freedom.  And by Friday, my rej...decision...will be waiting for me.

I agree.  When I checked my email every hour I was simply miserable all day when I saw an empty inbox.  But when I just waited and checked only once at night, I didn't ruin my entire day.  My frequency wasn't going to change the decisions of the school either way so why make myself suffer even more.  It was tough the first few days to stick to my plan and I was tempted to check more frequently, but I built up the resistance after awhile.

Yeah, I thought about that, but I figured I would find myself running to the computer 28 times a day, every time I heard an alert- all I would do is be disappointed and miserable.  Plus not working near a computer (self-employed Landscape Maintenace) has helped me stay away from temptation, though for the first few days I always found myself going home for the smallest excuse and immediately logging on to my email.  If I didn't break that habit soon I would have been too broke to afford even the move to a law school

While I'm at home I use trillian (an IM service) that pops up a little window in the corner anytime I receive new mail AND it says who its from.  It keeps me from getting my hopes up while I wait for my email to load.  This of course doesn't work during the day while I'm not home, so I find myself making excuses to use our receptionists computer.  :-\

UNBELIEVABLE day.  I officially LOVE Mondays.

Acceptances to:
USC - hadn't even notified me that I was complete, so super suprised by it.
UVA - status checker just changed to decision on Saturday (1/27) so I was also suprised by this one.
Columbia - this one was the suprise of the decade for me.  just didn't think I had it.  status is still at "complete" on the online status check.  I am shocked and I am awed.

Stats: 170/3.6 and I'm in CA and I applied to these schools between 12/21 and 12/30.

The letter was in the mail, no acceptance email here.  It was a thin envelope; I thought it was the "you are complete" form.

I had actually emailed USC last week to see if I was "complete" and they emailed me back simply stating that I wasn't.  Looking at LSN, I figured I had about a month before I'd hear anything...I was wrong.

They seem to be pretty random about their acceptances...

UNBELIEVABLE day.  I officially LOVE Mondays.

Acceptances to:
USC - hadn't even notified me that I was complete, so super suprised by it.
UVA - status checker just changed to decision on Saturday (1/27) so I was also suprised by this one.
Columbia - this one was the suprise of the decade for me.  just didn't think I had it.  status is still at "complete" on the online status check.  I am shocked and I am awed.

Stats: 170/3.6 and I'm in CA and I applied to these schools between 12/21 and 12/30. 

Oh, awesome! Congrats!

Thanks for all the "congrats" guys...though I haven't posted on LSD very much..I have been lurking for a loooong time (Since September 30th to be exact).  I used LSD to help me cope with an unsuccessfull LSAT, to prepare for an LSAT retake, to get all my applications done successfully, and to deal with waiting for decisions...I don't know what I would do without you guys!!! 

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

This day has been nuts! I really hope tomorrow is just as lively! Especially since I'll be home soon after the mail comes, not like the torture I endured today coming home 5 hours after the mail. UGH. 

I DID try not to look at the mail till I got into the house but the mail wasn't agreeing with the mail box and I ended up seeing most of the return addresses.  What a bummer. It was a stressful speed-walk to the house lol.

Wow, very nice.  We're pretty close in major and numebrs too, although admittedly you're a point higher on the LSAT and slightly higher GPA.  I'm surprised you didn't get any money to Miami.  Do you know if they still might offer you scholarship or does Miami generally send it with the acceptance?

From what I understand, they usually send scholarship after acceptance.

"This week is the busiest period of the year for transmitting your electronic applications. Over 40 law schools have electronic application deadlines that fall between January 31 and February 2. Be sure to check the deadlines for the schools to which you are applying. To avoid the rush, it is a good idea not to wait until the last minute to transmit your applications."

Wake is probably one of the only non T-30's that's really underrated. It's inexpensive too.
I'm curious: to what other non T-30s would you give that distinction?

Yeah, but heaping abuse on a visiting Dook team is an end in itself.

Wake went to a bowl game this year. I gotta love that. Less students than my own alma mater (I-AA, bleh)... they were representin' the small schools.

Bitter much? skidder said he/she was surprised by the quick turnaround, not by the acceptance.

I think skidder had the unfortunate honor of being in closest proximity rather than being the best example of goose's complaint.  In general, I agree with him.  I mean, I'm sure you're a lovely person and all, but your comment about anyone with the numbers getting into Harvard sort of speaks to his complaint: if you're well above the 75s at a school, it's a little silly to come on with the shock at an acceptance.  I sometimes wonder if it's sort of a false-surprise-in-attempt-to-be-humble thing.  I think it's possible to show some humility and gratitude without seeming quite so fake.  Yes yes, this is all mysterious and none of us can read the minds of the adcomms, but come on.  It gets a little old for the people who actually have risky numbers.

In my defense, a couple of my acceptances didn't surprise me, and I didn't pretend they did either. goosenesque, sorry for making a snap judgment. Your comment just seemed out of nowhere unless it was a response to skidder. I do think that law school is largely a numbers game, and if you have 175+ and 3.9+ you're almost certain to get into Harvard (sorry Harvard people, but it's true. True for most schools, I'd say), and I suppose if someone with those numbers came in here acting surprised that they were accepted at a T2 school, I'd be irritated too. I haven't been around long enough to notice that trend. Either that or I don't look at everyone's numbers when they say they've been accepted.
Title: Re: Accepted TODAY !!
Post by: nerdphanie on February 01, 2007, 02:43:03 AM
That is true, but I know admissions calculators gave less than a 50% shot based on previous years for numbers in that range at Yale. Don't know about Stanford, as it's not listed on that thing on LSAC.

By the way, for the Cornell status checkers out there, I was complete for about a week, (took like 2 weeks to go complete. Applied in late December), and then I got an email for my acceptance.

My status checker still said complete for about another 4 days after I was accepted, so don't rely on it (maybe at least not this early in the cycle still?)

I was surprised by my quick turnaround from complete to acceptance, and I'm hardly an auto-admit.

Yeah, I just found out that the pre-law guy at my ugrad only sent the dean cert out on the 23rd even though I mailed it to him on the same day I sent the app (i.e. it sat on his desk for a month). I suspect I should be flipping to complete soon

Straying from topic for a sec, but I've never understood the meaning of index numbers.  Do they reflect the weight that a certain schools give GPA/LSAT? My GPA is generally over the 75% percentile for most any school, but my LSAT certainly isn't for my reaches.  So is the index score a better point of comparison when looking at people on LSN who have already been accepted?

Not so much.  Not compared to other people on LSN.  I have 3.5 years quality work experience, some run-of-the-mill ECs with 2 minor leadership positions.  But I worked a lot during undergrad.

I'm not a URM, but I did write a diversity statement.  I think maybe my LORs were really strong.  And maybe they liked my 250. 

Plus I put a spell on the adcomms.

Evangeline:
It has nothing to do with factors hard or soft.  Yale has looked deep within your soul and has found you to be worthy.

Congratulations!

P.S.  All Yale admits are required to post their 250s in the "Yale 250 that got a kid in last year" (or whatever it's called) thread.

Or just to PM me with them, everyone who gets accepted.

Yes, I did in fact send a one page letter updating them about several different things (in lieu of an updated resume). I mentioned my continued interest in Michigan in one paragraph, along with a few reasons for wanting to attend. I took them 4 weeks to debate the merits of my letter and get back to me, or so it seems.

In at IU-B today via email!! Woo hoo!

Congrats!

I'm upset with IU-B. I went complete in December but submitted my app way back in October and haven't heard anything. It doesn't make sense why I wouldn't get in by now.

 

Thanks!  It does seem pretty strange that you haven't heard back, with your numbers you're a shoo-in. When I got my complete notice, it said that they expected to have a decision to me by the middle of February.  Over on LSN, it seems like they're doing a couple rounds of decisions each week.  I wouldn't worry (and I doubt you are), you're bound to hear good news in the next week or so. Thanks again and good luck!

Is that so? Okay, as of today I no longer want to get anything in the mail. Heck, I'm not even complete at many schools. I don't know how y'all have managed to wait this long. Just the thought of waiting till April is killing me.

Well, to me 4 years ago it would have sounded very silly. When I applied to undergrad, I was of the mindset that who cares about location I want to go to the best place I can. By chance I've ended up at a college where I LOVE the location (and consider that I only use the word "love" like they use it in Germany and I still say that) and I've seen how nice it can be to go to school somewhere that you want to be. I've even started putting the cart before the horse and saying to myself "Even if I do get into Michigan, do I really want to go there?"

To keep this on topic. I think I got into Emory today. Got an e-mail about an online chat for admitted students, and as far as I can tell nobody else who hasn't gotten an acceptance packet has gotten that e-mail.

yeah what can I say, I'm a Boston girl at heart and NYC is just TOO MUCH city for me.  That said, still going to look and hoping I love it.  I did do some self-selection when it came to locations I would definitely not want to be in...Vanderbilt, Texas...


And whoever it was that mentioned wanting closure...man do I hear you...I feel very fortunate to have the options that I do...but it's so hard to even think about deciding without seeing everything that will end up on the table.

Just to cut it off at the pass, I was not trying to be a feminine hygiene product or anything.  It just seems like the idea that there someone could do absolutely perfect work for four years straight (while taking challenging classes) is too far fetched to have it occur so frequently (not targeted at aslaw)

I suppose that could be true, although my school doesn't really have an across-the-board scale that includes an A+ - it's just a little something that the prof can throw on there. Honestly, I never thought it meant anything until I started applying to law schools. My institutional GPA was a 4.0.

Can we ask what college and expect an answer? A boost for being extra-special just doesn't seem college level to me. There was once a person who graduated with a 4.0 average at my school...that was 5 years ago. None of the professors here (some of which have been here for a LONG time) can remember what the most recent time was before that. Then again, this school and The University of Chicago are the only two schools I know of which boast about having low grades (according to a professor, a former department head used to take out to dinner at the end of each semester the professor in his department who gave the lowest average GPA...now try saying that 3 times fast).

Haha well that's one way to keep grade inflation down! I'd rather not reveal my specific institution in a small attempt to protect my identity (not so much from law schools as from my current employer  ;)). I will tell you this much though - it's a women's college, so it's smaller than most schools, and it is a tier 2 (top 100) institution according to the nationwide undergraduate rankings. I don't know what everyone else's grades were, but I know there weren't THAT many Summa Cum Laude's at graduation.

I interpreted aslaw's explanation as meaning that their school doesn't have a scale that requires +/- grading, though professors can give +/-'s if they want, it will go on the transcript but not count for institutional gpa. This is how my undergrad worked (though I was never threatening to break a 4.0). Some profs feel that a 98%+ in their class is "extra special" and deserves a + (these profs would also have assign -'s... I'm pretty sure you can't only give +s).

I go to a top school and some profs give A+'s to the top 5% of their classes. An A is still an A. A+ is always unexpected.

Haha well that's one way to keep grade inflation down! I'd rather not reveal my specific institution in a small attempt to protect my identity (not so much from law schools as from my current employer  ;)). I will tell you this much though - it's a women's college, so it's smaller than most schools, and it is a tier 2 (top 100) institution according to the nationwide undergraduate rankings. I don't know what everyone else's grades were, but I know there weren't THAT many Summa Cum Laude's at graduation.

She got straight As because she looks exactly like Claire Danes!  What are you fellas missing?!

Congrats to others who got in today. 

3 acceptances since I applied about 15 or 16 days ago :-)  Getting my first rejection is going to be sad, but I know they're coming.

That's right! -8 degrees... I don't think I have even felt temperatures that cold...  It really doesn't sound pleasant.  

And you really don't want to be walking to class from the trains in Chicago in -8 degrees...
Might as well pay rent at one of the study corrals in the library and just live there... might not be such a bad idea if they would let you do it.  Cheap rent, free utilities, and no -8 degrees.  Perfect.

Haha!  Sorry about that...maybe their decision will get lost in the mail and you'll still get yours before me?  I wouldn't put it outside of the realm of possibility yet, that's for sure.

I haven't been to LSN in a while since I've had nothing to update, but I see now that you're complete at most of your schools.  I think you'll see some movement this month, but if you get a decision in hand at both Penn and Virginia before me, I'll try to not be jealous at all.  I might fail, but I'll really, really try!

Yes, I went to decision on 2/5. I got the status check e-mail update Monday night, like you (i think) and some others did. I am very close to VA. And the letter was postmarked 02/05. So I'm guessing they mailed them that day as well.

I'm stuck at work until 6pm central time, and I'm just a hair below 1,500 miles away from Charlottesville.  I probably won't get their mailing until Friday (though I'm hoping for tomorrow...I've waited over 16 weeks and closure would be nice), but I'll post about it as soon as I find out the good or bad news. 

I'm on hold at Penn and wouldn't be at all surprised if you hear from them first.  And it had better be positive news too, or else I'll lose my faith in 'em.

Oh yeah, let me apologize in advance in case you see that I posted again in this thread and think it's to say I've been accepted.

It was a thin envelope by the way - kinda freaked me out at first, but no fear - apparently they send the big package later.

Thanks, I appreciate the kind words, but I'm not interested in their PT program AT ALL.  Based on data from LSN, it seems like they don't accept ANY non-URM applicants with LSAT under 160.  I'd probably get in off the waitlist, but by then I'm sure I'll be set on SMU already.

I feel you.  I got a 160, and I'm like dying here thinking it just might not cut it.  I applied mid-January and people who applied around when I did have started to hear.  My GPA is over their median, but nowhere near yours.  USD is far and away my #1 choice, so it's killing me not knowing.

We've got a higher average SAT and student's families have a lower average income than at UCLA Mr. Bruin. This "USC is a dumb party school for rich kids" thing is really going away fast.

Two things:

1. The higher SAT part is a farce, because USC counts/reports best scores in each category (multiple sittings) and we count best score in one sitting. Anyone who has applied to both in the last 5 years knows which undergrad school is more selective.

2. I was referring to your athletes, not your entire student body. Chauncey Washington (ineligible two years), Taj Gibson (21 year-old freshman, needed prep school), Davon Jefferson (still trying to qualify academically with remedial English in adult school), Gabe Pruitt (ineligible fall '06), Troy Van Blarcom (academically ineligible after fall, booted out of school), Matt Spanos (ineligible all of this season) the list goes on. And that's just the last year or two.

Every school has idiot athletes that can't make the grade, especially ones with elite football and basketball programs. I honestly can't/don't want to get into the USC vs. UCLA battle. They're both good schools with good athletics programs. I've got no beef with UCLA other than during and immediately after football and basketball games, hell I'd love to go to UCLA Law. I just don't take kindly to potshots.

But potshots are fun! I actually watched the game with a USC grad who is now at UCLA law. Fun to pick people's brains about that sort of thing.

Objectively, they're about as dead-even as rivals as two schools can possibly be...

Agreed. I'm not sure how I'd live with myself if I ever ended up rooting for you guys, but it's not nearly as bad as my aversion to Notre Dame. Coming from a Big 10 family, I hate them so much I didn't even apply.

In at UC Davis today via online status checker.

No way dude, I'm happy for you.  Davis is pretty much my top choice now that Boalt is out (and for all intensive purposes, UCLA is out I suspect).

And by the way, if you don't get in anywhere else, you need to head to Davis.

Hmmm cert letter? You mean just the one you have to sign with the fee? They just want your money with that. ;) FWIW I don't think UC Davis gives out fee waivers, or if they do, I certainly didn't get one. I take it you'd rather be in Texas than CA, then? If you're not at all sure, I'd encourage you to send it in!

Well, never say never. But it looks like UC Hastings and UC Davis are finally starting to send out a lot of acceptances, so hopefully you'll hear back soon.

What's so good about UC Davis? Does anyone know?

I know about as much as a non-law school student can possibly know about Davis.  Here are, in my opinion, the top 5 things about the school:

1. VERY friendly environment, probably due to the small-town atmosphere, as well as the lack of Socratic Method in classrooms.

2. People aren't obsessed with working at the top firms, so there is less competition, and more cooperation between students.  Also, supposedly students there are in general less egotistical than the average law school student.

3. Though graduates don't get particularly high paying jobs, there is something nice about a school that employs around 80 percent at graduation (MUCH higher than Hastings), and 96 percent 9 months after graduation.

4. Cost of living is cheaper in Davis than almost anywhere else in the state.

5. It's a UC - the UC system is easily the best public university system in the country.

Davis has a pretty big following of fans in Reno. I had never even heard of the school until I moved up here and people talk about it like it's one of the best UC schools ever.  I dont know any real details about the school, but if you want to work in Northern Nevada I'm sure your degree would have a lot of opprotunities...not that anyone REALLY wants to work in N Nevada. lol

There is an emphasis on social justice (hence the name of the law school, MLK Hall).  I believe they have 4 clinics, two of which are immigration law clinic and prison law clinic.

Title: Re: Accepted TODAY !!
Post by: goosenesque on February 08, 2007, 07:59:32 PM
It's a pretty standard middle-class area.  There are no ghettos or anything close by, and nice, 1 bedroom apartments can be found for about $1,000 a month.  Overall, I'd say compared to other schools in California, the living situation/area around Davis is great.

Had to throw in my own little addition and some comments. :) California is a giant state with a lot of legal jobs. Stanford and Boalties may or may not stay in California, whereas USC and UCLAers probably will, but more in SoCal. After that you have Hastings and Davis. UC Hastings is in the Bay Area and UC Davis is near Sacramento, the capital.

Thats a fantastic question.  in fact, my wife asks me every day  :)   I don't know exactly.  IU would be great but with my family and desire to have a lower debt load, i would probably lean towards Kent because of the scholarship.  - all the best.

EDIT - Case (if i get a scholarship), U Conn, and USD are all very possible options as well.

Congrats!  I know you were really nervous, you going there for sure?

UVA finally loved me back.  I feel we've reached a milestone in our relationship.  This is definitely the acceptance with the best promise of good weather, so that's really nice.

Congrats!  Which ASW will you attend?

OMG! IN AT SAN DIEGO!!!!!

I'm shaking.. this is the one I've been waiting for!

That's awesome dude, I know you've been VERY interested in going to San Diego.

On a side note, this further proves my theory that San Diego doesn't accept any non-URMs with LSAT lower than 160, and that they basically treat 3.4-3.6/160-1 better than a 4.0/158-9 (sorry if this sounds bitter).

Thanks man.  I am extremely interested, and a visit out there will decide that now. 

And you don't come off as bitter at all.  I know exactly how you feel (with other schools I applied to).  However, if it's of any help, looking at last year, only 2 people with 159s were rejected, and they had around 3.0 or lower.

http://lawschoolnumbers.com/search_schools.php?action=search&school_code=4849&lsat1=159&lsat2=159&fee_waiver=0&status=0&gpa_lsdas1=&gpa_lsdas2=&attending=0&cycle=3&gpa_degree1=&gpa_degree2=&withdrawn=0&program=1&index1=&index2=&state=0&application_type=0&scholarship1=&scholarship2=&sex=0&multiple_lsat=0&urm=0&x=23&y=11&international=0

It also seemed as though everyone with a 159 or 160 who ended up on the waitlist was accepted.  I know it sucks to find out late, but a lot of them found out with plenty of time to still make an informed decision.

I don't suppose you're taking the LSAT tomorrow?
Title: Re: Accepted TODAY !!
Post by: goosenesque on February 09, 2007, 04:56:44 PM
You're right, I did notice that everyone with my numbers get waitlisted, and then nearly all end up getting in.  I'm not taking the LSAT tomorrow, but I probably will take it in June.

Anyway, San Diego is a great great place, and I hope you enjoy your visit.  I'll probably make a trip out there in March.

Ridiculous turnaround time: complete on Jan 25th.  All I can think of is that they really need geographic diversity, I have an NYC address.



If you could rate my jealousness on a scale of 1-10 it'd be a 25.  Congratulations :)



Also, congratulations to all the amazing acceptances today! USD, DePaul, Notredame, the Vandy's, I think I'm forgetting a couple.  It makes me sad all I got today was my graded lessons from a correspondence spanish class.

That's great, esp. considering how cheap they are. Maybe it will help you negotiate with SMU? The are not exactly peer schools, but not too far off in competition for students.

Let's hope you're a trend setter! I'm non-URM with a 164 and holding my breath for some longhorn love.

For what it's worth, last year on LSN there was a handful on non-URM's with <165.  So, hopefully drpepr and I will be joining you!

Nope. You're probably thinking about UPenn or UMich. UMN's website clearly states:

"Personal Statement

One of Minnesota’s great strengths is our exceptionally talented student body. The varied backgrounds and outlooks our students bring contribute enormously to the quality of the education Minnesota is able to provide. Through the personal statement, the Admissions Committee hopes to obtain additional insight about you, as well as a means of assessing your writing ability. As you prepare a statement, you should consider commenting on why you wish to obtain a law degree and, in particular, why you are interested in the University of Minnesota."

http://www.law.umn.edu/prospective/appprocedure.html (http://www.law.umn.edu/prospective/appprocedure.html)

Seems like if you dont answer the last part, a deferral is likely.

actually the site has 2 buttons asking if i'd like to confirm or decline acceptance, but i'm not entirely sure what those options entail. i definitely don't want to click decline, but i don't know what clicking accept will do (ie - will it effectively "enroll" me?). does anyone know what clicking the accept button will do? i don't want to jump the gun or anything like that since i'm still waiting to hear from the bulk of my schools.

I would think that unless you submit a credit card number and pay a deposit, you're fine.  Maybe it just means "I'm confirming that I got sent the acceptance".

Either way, I wouldn't do anything just yet.

Congratulations.  Must be those incredible Leto eyes in your tar that got you in.  Or it could be your amazing numbers!  ;)

It's totally the Leto eyes. All numbers are secondary to those eyes.

Weirdly enough, the only reason I think that looks anything like me is because of the eyes...

I got into law school AND I have amazing eyes?

Best.....Day.......Ever.

Full-ride at Michigan State; $54,000 dollars at DePaul.  Still waiting on Michigan, Case and Indiana.

Congrats!, but did these come "TODAY !!"?

No, I got the DePaul notice over a week ago and the MSU scholarship info yesterday.  I'd just forgotten about this thread, so didn't post until today :P

Okay, cool.  I hope to get some love from DePaul as well.  Good luck the rest of the way!

Thanks!

You too!
