What grade and percentage do I need? Will top 30% be sufficient?

You have to leave the country for a full year and then come back. Otherwise you won't have another 6 years of H1.



I am an Indian male, will finish 6 years on H1 next year and I'll start law school, if accepted, after having already finished 6 years on H1.

Does anyone know if I can convert from H1 [7th year extension] to F1? If yes, then after the F1, can I get a new H1 with new 6 year timeframe? Thanks in advance.

Law School Applications / Re: Northwestern Hold-list

Same here, summer waitlisted. I will soon withdraw.

I was wondering whether they have admitted enough students -- lsn shows only 12 will attend. Maybe they deferred too many people from last year?



Shortened Summer Waitlist here as well.

Just checked and the website is down.

I might call to find out ...

Just checked -- I was also waitlisted without receiving an e-mail.

Everyone should log on and check.

Just called. Was told that they are trying to send notifications to all by Mid May.

My patience is wearing out ...

Law School Applications / Re: Choosing a private loan lender

Hi, I think federal loan is better and does not go up with interest rates.

Can you tell me which private lender this is? The ones I used have much higher rates (like 8.1%).

I'll read it/comment tomorrow morning if you want to send it over!
Just PMed you.

This is very helpful.

Thanks Jessy!
I addressed mine to the admission officer who signed my waitlist letter (e.g. Director of Admissions, whatnot), using "Dear Mr./Ms. So-and-so".

I started the letter with: "I am writing to you in regards to my status on the [School Name] School of Law waitlist for the 2007-2008 academic year.  I would like to reiterate my sincere interest in the [School Name] School of Law..."  And so on and so forth...

Not bad. I will probably use that for W&M who yield-protected me.
Dear law school:

I like you. Do you like me? Circle one:

Yes                   No                         Maybe

XOXO,
hotpot.
