I think I got window 1 (select starting April 30) and I'm most likely deferring. What a tease.

General Board / Re: Would like to work for BigLaw in Bangkok, Thailand

I'm quite fond of Asia myself. Bangkok is great, but have you lived there or just travelled? For me it's only been the former, but I can see how living there long term could be quite a drag (less so if you manage to position work place and dwelling on stops of the MRT and/or BTS).

Some schools have clubs for students wishing to practice (corporate) law in Asia. HLS is one of them.

You wouldn't believe what kind of garbage gets posted here sometimes. Don't take people's skepticism personally. And obviously enough people took you seriously to make genuine responses to your question.

You should be excited about the LSAT score--it's terrific. His chances are great.

In this context, a "flame" is a post that is meant primarily to mess with people. In in this instance, many on this board suspect you're not actually a mother trying to find info for your son, but just someone posting nonsense and then laughing at the silly people (including me) who take it seriously and respond to the post.

Oh, and Yale definitely has to be Guinness - its probably the highest quality beer (well, among popular beers, anyway), but is different than really any of the others.

I would have to say Yale is more like a Dogfishhead 90-minute I.P.A.

Guinness is great, and better than most mass-produced American beers, but I'd say it's more of a GULC in terms of quality. Besides, there's a clear connection between the beer and the school: they both start with G (although by that logic Yuletide Ale might be more of a Yale).

Do any of you send responses to acceptance emails? I'm starting to suspect I'm rude for not doing so.

i hope they click on my LSN.

I click on your LSN every other day in the hope it will magically turn into a hyperlink. Wait, what's that informal definition of insanity again?

I actually drove to Cambridge to pick it up in person. I believe the date I posted was the first day they were "ready" and I assumed they would be sending out all the ones people hadn't requested to pick up.

current applicants are my world entire.

You probably once believed in Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, and Jebus.  This too shall pass.

Eh.  Santa Claus did indeed seem plausible to me at one point (4 years old?); Little Baby Jesus, on the other hand, never did make much sense to me.  (... and I choose to say this on Christmas Day, why?  Sorry Jesus.  Had fun receiving the sacrament of your body & blood at church tonight, by the way.  You hang in there, dude.  But watch out for the Friday before Easter; you might want to stay in bed that day.)

And I think I had the Tooth Fairy figured out from square one but chose to play along.  Needed the money, I guess.

Sacrilegious pun intended?

I should quit LSD before all this massive envy does something negative to me.

I hope you're really savoring this moment; you're in at one of my dream schools, and they've given you a shirt.

Yeah, but I assume everyone gets a shirt of the same size, at least within each gender group. Hence, although the t-shirt may bring joy through what it represents, it may disappoint many from a more practical perspective. Harvard got it right. I'll get my sexy, form-fitting HLS shirt if and when the time is right.
