Acceptances / In at Stanford? Are you serious?
« on: December 07, 2004, 01:10:16 PM »
I just got a call from Faye Deal at Stanford admissions letting me know that I'm in!!

I have no work experience.  I haven't even graduated college yet. My LSAT isn't even in their 25-75 split.  I'm a White Irish male.  I kid you not.

To help fill in the pic a little bit...

One of my LOR's is from a Nobel prize winner.
I have a high GPA.
My PS was about my fifteen minutes of fame after my run on Regis' "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?"

I'm flipping out...they want to pay my airfare to see the place in April.  This wasn't even a pipe dream.  I thought I had no chance.

Law School Applications / School Information/Presentation Sessions
« on: September 06, 2004, 08:27:03 PM »
Hey guys, I'd like your esteemed opinions on the following...

Over the next two to three months, most of the top 20 law schools are coming to campus to give an information session and answer any questions about the application process.  I have noticed that the people running these sessions are not only admissions committee members - but often the Dean him/herself.

Is it common to introduce yourself personally after the session ends?  Are these sessions even worthwhile?

Law School Applications / Receive the Univ. of Michigan fee waiver?
« on: August 27, 2004, 12:14:26 PM »
Now, I just visited the campus of Michigan (and was blown away).  I am even giving serious thought to abandoning my once set-in-stone criteria of urban and east coast.  But, now that I just received a fee waiver with the app. booklet in the mail, I'm definitely applying. 

If any one has questions about Michigan, I might be able to help out.  Took the tour, spoke to students, etc...

I have noticed that NYU, Michigan, and Georgetown all ask for 1 recommendation (though they welcome additional references).  Does anyone, whether having applied already or not, know if you are at a disadvantage to take them at their minimum?

Law School Applications / So, Early Decision benefits...whom?
« on: July 06, 2004, 05:39:48 PM »
I´ve heard a lot speaking on the benefits of early decision (i.e., obviously hearing earlier about an acceptance or rejection, allowing a law school to fill their class with competitive applicants as soon as possible).  But, in reality, doesn´t this benefit a law school more than the student?  That is, if you are really no more likely to get in early than regular what is the advantage?  I plan on applying early to Columbia to give myself every opportunity to succeed.  But, with marginal numbers for CLS (3.95 & 168), do I really receive any benefit from applying early if, as I would expect, I am applying in a more competitive pool?

Please excuse me if I am rambling, the waiter this evening placed a bottle of grappa free of charge at my disposal.  (Speaking a little Spanish goes a long way)

Aside from the obvious tourist traps, I'd be interested in whether any of you out there had any off-the-beaten path recommendations...


bars? clubs? hot spots? anything else?

how it is that a school ranked as high as Berkeley has a middle 50% LSAT range that starts as low as 160?
