Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / NYU Cutting the Waitlist...
« on: June 22, 2006, 10:55:49 AM »
Just to warn everyone--four "WL, Rejected" cropped up on LSN in the last few hours for NYU.  I'm so scared to check the mail the next couple of days cause I know mine will take probably a day or two longer to get here. :(

Anyone who's gotten one of these WL rejections, what was the postmark on it?  And did you send in any supplemental info?

Thanks and good luck to all!
-Mr. Burnz

I'm on the waitlist at NYU and I am going to visit the school but I want to be able to talk to one of the recruitment officers.  I called them today and they said that wasn't possible???  I was wondering if anyone in my situation has given it a try--do they just tell you that or is it true?

Law School Admissions / Speed up Slow LSAC Applications!
« on: April 02, 2006, 08:32:57 PM »
I found this on Deloggio's website just last week but wish I had known before I gruelingly filled out all 15 of my applications!  If your letters on the LSAC application take forever to appear after you type them into that stupid %$@#$%@#%$@# ActiveX control, you DEFINITELY need to do this to avoid pain and mental anguish.  It's really ridiculous how much I suffered filling out apps because I did not have this information--plus it forced me into a lot of mistakes and took me forever to fill out apps.  Again, thanks to Deloggio for this advice!

"LSAC part 1:  Application problems
Have you begun completing your applications online?  Does the cursor move at a snail's pace?  Here are instructions from Law Services on how to fix that problem:

1) Right click on any open space on your desk top;
2) Click on properties;
3) Click on the tab appearance;
4) Click on the box labeled Effects;
5) Go to the second item and change the setting to Standard;
6) Then unclick that item and the Standard box should be shaded grey;
7) Click ok on that Effects window and then on the Display Properties window.

Law School Admissions / Miami Scholars Program

Did anyone apply for the Miami Scholars Program (deadline was today!)?  If so, do you know what the obligations are as far as the "required participation in a designated seminar for credit during their second and third year of law school"?

Law School Admissions / UC Berkeley’s e-mail error puzzles applicants
« on: February 27, 2006, 08:09:52 PM »
Wow, this would suck...

A clerical error made last Friday by the director of admissions for UC Berkeley's law school left many of the school's applicants confused after they received an e-mail congratulating them on their acceptance even though most had not received an admissions decision.

Edward Tom, admissions director for the Boalt Hall School of Law, accidentally sent out an e-mail to hundreds – perhaps thousands – of applicants, which seemed to indicate they had been accepted.

The e-mail, an invitation to an alumni-sponsored event for applicants who have already been admitted, congratulated the recipients on their recent acceptance.

Tom said he was demonstrating to a new staffer how to use the e-mail system when he mistakenly sent the e-mail.

"I am not normally the person who does the e-mails," Tom said. "I took it upon myself, mistakenly, to show her (the system). I was showing her (what not) to do and I clicked the mouse." After realizing his blunder, Tom sent out an explanatory e-mail within about 20 minutes and a longer apologetic e-mail the following day.

Tom said he is unsure of the number of people to whom the e-mail was sent, but he is operating under the assumption that it went to all 7,000 applicants. However, he also said that based on the e-mail and telephone responses he has received, it seems to have been sent to applicants whose last names begin with a letter in the first half of the alphabet.

The school has not yet sent out any denials, and has only sent out some of its acceptances. Tom said the e-mail has no bearing on acceptance status.

"Just because they got the e-mail, it does not mean they were denied, nor does it mean they were admitted," he said.

The school expects to complete its admissions notifications by the end of March.

Tom said his staff has begun taking steps to ensure that this does not happen again, including, as he said, "my staff's not going to let me touch the e-mails anymore."

Studying for the LSAT / February 2006 Score Release Date?
« on: February 10, 2006, 01:21:08 AM »
I'm one of the only oddballs who took the test in October and not again until February.  Back in October, the test was on October 1st and the score was emailed to me on Friday, October 21st at 8:30 PM even though the scheduled release date was Monday the 24th.  Does anyone remember what date the December scores were scheduled vs. actual release date?  The suspense is killing reminds me of a game show or something where you wait to see whether or not your response was correct and your heart hangs there waiting to hear from the judges...

Studying for the LSAT / Sabbath Observers Test

Does anyone have any idea if the Sabbath observer's administration on Feb. 6th is the same test as the one we took on Feb. 4th?
