reply to my BC Story: It was my very first rejection.  I was pretty torn up all day.  For some reason (and you know we all do this), I read the letter again that night.  The name and address at the top definately didn't match mine.  Some girl in a state 800 miles away.

Seriously - I have about as much confidence in these people as I do in the DMV

Choosing the Right Law School / Anyone waiting on Fordham still?

Still have yet to hear from Fordham. 

Well, kind of.  They were one of two schools that sent me a rejection by mistake in January.  I say by mistake, because they rejected me before I even had an LSAT score for them.  They appologized.

And BC - The mother of all stories - They sent me a rejection letter that, upon further review, was intended for someone else.  (Still had my name on the outside though).  I told them that if things dont work out i could help them out in the mailroom for a year or so and see where things go.

oooooh, so that might explain why us news numbers are sometimes a bit different than the ABA guidebook numbers.

i was complete 1/12, and still no word.  spoke with someone in admissions in february he said i was supposed to hear within two weeks definately.  i hope the "no news is good news" idea still applies.  and as for the question earlier about faculty reading files, i've learned that only faculty members read the files at vandy.

In trying to decide where to go next fall, I'm begining to think about what my class rank might be after the first year.  Even though I know that gpa/lsat aren't the best indicators (believe me, I'm pretty convinced), I still think it might be useful to know the average gpa/lsat of students who are actually attending the law school.  Can we get that information?  I can only find these numbers for admitted applicants, and I have a feeling that those numbers are artificially high for schools ranked (40) and lower simply because they are safety schools for a lot of people.  Anyone agree?  Any ideas?

wow - sounds like lots of people were pretty turned off by the letter.  i'm going to stay in the running b/c it's still a top choice. i'll also write that "why i want to go to case" essay.  good idea, thanks.

Got mine today as well.  I was actaully happy considering I"m out of state, and I understand it to be difficult to get in out of state at William and Mary.  (i think so at least).  Anyone know of our chances of getting off this list?  Any way of looking at people who have managed to get off the wait list in the past?
