Transferring / Re: Encouraged to transfer by a law school?
« on: April 17, 2005, 06:55:06 PM »
I've heard of law schools going after the people on law review at neighboring schools, but don't know if that's true and who.

I'm looking to write a story about the trials and tribulations of applying to law school.  The good and the bad.  The schools you got into and the ones that rejected or waitlisted you.  Especially the challenges: Someone, for example, who got a fee waiver and then was cruely rejected.  I just want to understand what it takes to play the law school game.  Thanks in advance.  Alex (email me at lawschoolgames@yahoo.com)

Denials / Re: WTF?!? Denied at WNEC!

It's just awful.  Mind-boggling actually.  What schools are famous for doing this?  Has anyone had a specific experience like Quaker Oats?  Encouraged to apply to a school where they are sure to be rejected?

I can't believe that W & L would send a fee waiver, but then reject you.  I don't get it.  Any chance you can email me? (lawschoolgames@yahoo.com)

Just thought eveyone would be interested. Baylor is pulling a big "trick." Baylor has three enterance times Fall, Spring, and Summer. They take 65, 65, and 30, respectively. They only report to the U.S. News the information on the fall 65. So, there LSAT 75/25 as reported is 164/159, if they included everyone that entered (i.e., all 160) it would be 159/156.

Interesting tactics, m123.  I appreciate them.   Sad to hear about the disclaimer, however.  Did any of these things happen to you or someone you know?  Anyone out there fall into any of these m123's categories?

Ellie.  I think you're totally onto something.  My sense it that they will use your "withdrawal" in their rejection rate.  I'd like to talk about this more.  Would you mind emailing me offline?

I'm trying to write a story about getting admitted to law school and am looking for war stories concerning all the cruel ways that schools manipulate their admissions figures.  Has anyone had first-hand experience with any of the following?

1.  You were encouraged to apply to a law school that summarily rejected you?
2.  You were rejected or "wait-listed" at a school that you surely should have been admitted to?
3.  You were encouraged to leave your law school and transfer to a higher Tier-ed school?
4.  You noticed a huge influx of transfer or full-time students come second year?
5.  You were hired to work at the law school come graduation?

Any other peculiar practices?  I'm quite new to this.  Feel free to post your comments here or send me email.  Thanks.
