The best soft drink in the world is Cheerwine.  Yummmm..

Never heard of it. Sounds rather feminine.

I just googled it and it's only really available in the south.  Particularly the eastern side but not where I live.  Tennessee's as far west as I've enjoyed it.  It's really cheap too.  It's like really high quality RC Cola

It is pretty good.  I thought they only sold it in the Carolinas or something, you can't get it just anywhere.

I'm revoking your modship

Mmm, sorry, I don't think your post count is high enough.  You are in the wrong clique too.  Oops!

What if you add my posts counts together?  And I can switch cliques.  I've always liked MAS ;)

That organization has no business sense.  If I ran that, if the party deck wasn't sold to a big group, I'd open it up to first come/first served tickets and sell it that way.  I'm sure they make money doing that.

true.  but it is 4th of July weekend, I bet a big group did ask for it

Merry Christmas Lucas!

The dashed lines for the October LSAT popped up the day of the scores being posted.  At least that was the case in some instances.  Some people claimed to get the dotted line and the date days before the test score release.  I personally got the dotted lines, a couple hours later I got the test date in the box, and a couple hours after that my score was released.  All in the same day.  So it might be a slight sign.

The only sign is if your "update" box gets filled with the date of the score release (it will be filled with 1/05/09 in your cases). Dashed, dotted, glowing, whatever lines are meaningless.

stop taking all the fun out of it :D

It sure seems as if the scores are not being released today.  Too bad.   :(

you can't really say that...they can come late at night.  It's not even 3 eastern time.  But also they could still not come today.

I have a major upward trend in grades. I was tripled in a double room my freshmen year and my grades reflect that. I went from a 2.60 my freshmen year to a 3.45 my sophomore year and then junior and senior year Ive made dean's list about 4 times with grades averaging around a 3.7 for 4 consecutive semesters.

 ::) ::) ::)

I would NOT suggest using that as an addendum. A 3.4 is a perfectly respectable GPA. You'll be fine.


Don't use that as an addendum.  I would, however, suggest incorporating something where you talk about your positive grade trends.  Your grades are really similar to mine (in terms of trend, except my first two years were crap). 

ETA: What Brenda said.  Short, sweet, and to the point.  And yes, death in the family counts, but don't use it as a platform to throw a pity party.

3d.  I was suggesting more of a legit grade addendum with proof to back it up, if you had any.  You don't want to sound like you're making excuses.

I'm below the median at my school.  However, I maintain that the rest of my school has fluffy majors and I don't, and I have stuff from my school to prove it :D  So I wrote an addendum about that.  Anything in that realm you can consider?

OP, the Yale admissions blog answered a mailbag question this week about individuals applying ED.  They said they receive updates from peer schools regarding students who applied ED and were accepted at those schools and they immediately remove them from application consideration.  Assuming this is a standard practice, you can try and see if you're Harvard material, but they'll certainly take the liberty of withdrawing your application for you.

I just got a letter from Columbia that reads:

We have been informed by the University of Pennsylvania Law School that you have been admitted there under its binding Early Decision Program, and we applaud you on this accomplishment. As Penn Law's Early Decision Program is binding, we have withdrawn your application to Columbia Law School from further consideration.

Just read your contract. Not meaning to lash out at you, but people on this board seem to have a really difficult time understanding a pretty easy concept. BINDING. Meaning withdraw from all schools. All means all. Not some. All.

Wow, I'm kind of surprised ED information is released to other schools and they're allowed to contact you about it.

The government shouldn't be in the business of telling folks what are (and are not) appropriate names. 

yes it should.

So do you think we should provide a master list of acceptable names just so parents do not make any mistakes?   

How about if the parents named the child Adolf, but left out the Hitler last name?  Good parents or take the baby?

Nope, way beyond the scope of government.  We should not legislate morality.

If they're not legislating morality, what are they legislating?
