Anyone check out the admitted students day at Davis today? Any thoughts?

Denials / Berkeley DING
« on: February 28, 2006, 02:05:48 PM »
A lot of people seem to be talking about Berkeley rejects.  Well they don't mail out rejection letters as soon as they know they are going to get rejected. I'm not sure if other schools do this as well. 

Well I got sick of waiting and kept on reading threads about Boalt and all that fun stuff.  So I just called them.  I am planning on sending a letter of continued interest/update letter to a school that I am waitlisted for and I figured that perhaps I could send one to Boalt as well if they hadn't decided my application yet. 

I spoke to a woman and told her this.  I was informed my application had been decided already and she asked me if I wanted to be informed of my decision. (I wonder if anyone would say no?) So I was rejected unfortunately. 

Someone comfort me hahah.

Acceptances / In at Davis via Online Checker!!!!
« on: February 09, 2006, 09:19:48 AM »
In at UC Davis...I just arrived at work and decided to check the thing even though I check it every day at a certain time.  I jumped up and started screaming and everyone in the office thought I was on crack.  Ah the pleasures of being an intern.  Praise the Lord!

Law School Applications / Withdrawals
« on: February 01, 2006, 10:57:37 AM »
Okay so I am currently on two waitlists from schools in the 20-30 range.  Obviously, I am banking on withdrawals.  Since each person is now applying to more schools, more students will be rejecting schools as well.  Therefore, it is reasonable to assume that schools are likely to go to their waitlists if their percentage of people who accept their admission offers do in fact go down. 

That being said, someone who is going to go to HYS but still applied to all the T14s is going to start withdrawing from those T14s.  People who are on the waitlists on T14 schools will get bumped up when enough people reject their admissions offers because they end up going to higher ranked schools.  This opens up spots on the waiting lists from schools on the next level down...and so on and so on. 

So the best way for everyone to find out where they are going at some point before August is to have people at the top withdraw as soon as they know for sure they are not going to a specific school.  If they do that, then the cycle I described above will begin and people at all levels will be bumped up. 

Does this make sense or am I moron who has nothing to do at work today?

Law School Applications / Who has the most waitlists?
« on: January 14, 2006, 01:03:31 PM »
This should be pretty interesting.  I've heard back from 6 schools and I have been waitlisted twice and deferred once. The three decisions I got were pretty expected.  I have feeling I am going to be waitlisted for at least half of the a11 applications I have left.  Anyone else out there have or plan on having a pile of waitlists?

I just got waitlisted from one of my top schools and I guess given my numbers it is something to be happy about.  How can I increase my chances of getting off of that waitlist and into the school?  Should I send an update about an internship I have recently gotten or a list of continued interest?  Thanks for the help.

Law School Applications / So do we send updated transcripts to LSAC?
« on: December 21, 2005, 03:10:23 PM »
Sorry if this has been discussed before, but I have no clue whether or not as to send the new transcripts to lsac.  I would prefer not to because it will bring my gpa down...not significantly but with my borderline situation it would probably hurt.  are you guys sending in your transcripts?
