Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Duke Waitlist
« on: July 09, 2007, 09:04:50 AM »
Anyone else get the email  today about staying on the reduced waitlist?

I withdrew... bought a condo in Nashville, so I'm def going to Vandy even if Duke eventually accepted me.

General Off-Topic Board / Brainstorming...
« on: May 10, 2007, 05:19:02 PM »
I have to have a 10 page paper on Evil and Terrorism in the political climate written by 9 am tomorrow morning. I am supposed to respond to the following statement "Terrorism - the mass murder of civilians for political ends - is evil" Should be a relatively easy topic, but I have major writers block and need a little help. I think i'm going to argue that evil is a completely subjective concept based on the moral code of a specific society and that it would be better to use a word such as "unjust" to describe acts of terrorism. One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter so to speak. (clearly not condoning it, but I took too many philo courses this semester and now i'm burned out.)

Help with ideas? examples? anything????

Damn... that was a surprise...
 first rejection of the cycle always stings a little though... oh well. not like i was going to go there anyway (boyfriend was rejected from their med school - odd with a 39 MCAT and a 3.9 GPA but whatever)

Choosing the Right Law School / Tell me about Vandy?
« on: November 28, 2006, 09:22:00 PM »
Vanderbilt is quickly rising on the "I hope to God I get in" rankings.  Can anyone tell me more about this school? I think that now it's pretty much my number one mildly realistic choice.  169 LSAT. 3.2 GPA. Philosophy Major but Chemistry Minor for 2 years... grrr Orgo and Physics.

So I've heard that the quality of life is really quite good, and that it has a decent national recognition factor.  Anyone have anything to add? I haven't been to visit yet, but I definitely want to!

Law School Admissions / WUSTL??
« on: November 18, 2006, 09:07:35 AM »
So, WUSTL is a top 20 school (I think it actually /is/ 20) but no one on this board seems to be too keen on it.  Whats so wrong with WUSTL? are the job prospects significantly worse if I want to go into east coast law?
