I really appreciate the honest advice!

I know of 2 people who were called this week and offered admission from the waitlist-1 accepted and 1 declined...so for those of you still holding out, the waitlist is moving.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Get a mac now or wait?
« on: July 20, 2007, 01:40:34 AM »
I just bought a new macbook this week and not only did I get a free iPod nano (after the $199 rebate), but they also have a $100 printer rebate through July 23rd AND $100 off the macbook with proof that you're a student.  Ok, so that's a free printer, $100 off the macbook, and I sold the free iPod on ebay to defray the cost.  I asked the guy at the Apple store about rumors of an update and if it would be best to wait and he affirmed that there will probably be an update this fall.  Granted he's a salesman, he said it wouldn't be a big deal to upgrade the software. 

I've been keeping track of Apple's rebates/sales for awhile and this was definitely the best one I've seen...I say go for it!

Has anyone heard anything from UW?  I know calling to inquire probably wouldn't be the best idea, but the waiting is killing me!  It seems like in prior years (according to LSN), they notified people in June if they would be unable to accept them from the waitlist...but it seems like the waitlist hasn't moved at all?

Law School Applications / Re: help! Incomplete

It would be in your best interest to wait until your grade comes through.  Addendum or not, the incomplete could skew your LSAC GPA calculation.

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: Marquette
« on: June 19, 2007, 01:11:58 AM »
I was born and raised in Milwaukee and plan on attending Marquette this fall.  The city really has a lot to offer, whether you're interested in the arts, sports (Brewers, Bucks, Golden Eagles), nature, anything.  In the summer, Brewers games are really popular and the Summerfest grounds on the lakefront host festivals almost every weekend, the capstone being "Summerfest" itself (the world's largest music festival-www.summerfest.com).  Oh and every Thursday, there is a free jazz concert in Cathedral Square downtown that draws huge crowds...it's aptly called "Jazz in the Park".  Lake Michigan tends to be a hub for activities, even though I personally wouldn't get in the water near Bradford beach.  We have a world-class art museum right on the lakefront designed by Calatrava, who also designed the Sydney Opera House and Milwaukee is, of course, a short drive/train ride from Chicago.  I should probably also throw in that since Milwaukee is home of Miller, the free brewery tours (read: free samples) always seem to be a favorite attraction.

Ok so now that I've become an advertisement for MKE, feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions that I could answer for you and good luck with your decision!

WASHINGTON - A judge had to leave the courtroom with tears running down his face Tuesday after recalling the lost pair of trousers that led to his $54 million lawsuit against a dry cleaner.

Apparently this just wasn't his day in the courtroom.

LSAT horror stories / Re: My LSAT horror story
« on: June 13, 2007, 02:02:53 AM »
Guys, before you put him down it is possible.  Our current president, Bush got arround the same LSAT score as Ryan, but decided to go on to grad school at Harvard with a even lower precentile score on the GRE.  In some cases, personal experience and work history has a lot to do with it at Harvard.  If you look, they do not list a chart with whom they accept like GPA score and LSAT scores because Harbard believes there is more to a person than a GPA or LSAT score.  Harvard states that on the LSAC website.  I respect Harvard for that.  I would guess that most of Harvard's applicants have a perfect range of 173 to 180 with a perfect 4.0 GPA.  If a person had no former education, created one of the biggest coporations in the world, and won two nobel peace prizes, would it be acceptable to let them into Harvard Law with a 139 LSAT score?  I would be curious to see how well Ryan did at Harvard Law.  If he was in the top 25% of his class, that would say a lot about Harvard's academic process and prestiege.  I have attended Harvard's summer classes and one academic semester.  My name is Vincent Brown if anyone would like to check.  I had tougher classes at a comunity college than I ever did at Harvard.  Good luck Ryan and all of the best to you!

Vincent   



If you take a look at the OP's other posts, you'll notice that he wrote the same story on a few different boards, once claiming himself to be "Ryan" and another time "Terry"...I'd have to say it's a flame.

What do you mean?  His name is Slash.   8)

Touché.  :D
