Current Law Students / Law Review Grades
« on: January 07, 2009, 10:39:18 AM »
Since our grades are just coming in.......anybody have a general idea of what it takes to get onto law review, i.e. to achieve top 10%? Assuming a 4.0 scale, what is the general GPA range for top 10%? Does getting a B or a B+ or a C+  in one class basically kill your chances?

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / W&L Waitlist update
« on: May 14, 2008, 02:04:39 PM »
Just got an e-mail saying to let them know if im still interested, and to give a scholarship amount I would expect, as they are close to offering spots. Is this basically a priority waitlist, or did everyone get this message today?

I've been bugging the admissions office with e-mails (and by bugging i mean 2 e-mails) the past 2 weeks since I realized I never got a receipt of completed application. Well, they finally respond and say they have it (ive had to do this for about 3 schools-- where i send an e-mail, then the day after they day they got it-- wtf is with that, did they just not process it for some reason and found it lying on the floor?!) and that I will receive a decision as soon as possible, at the latest by the end of May. What does this even mean, arent all UCLA decisions basically already sent out right now, did I basically just get myself on the waitlist? Whats going on here, haha.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Fordham Waitlist Question
« on: April 04, 2008, 04:05:43 PM »
Hey guys-- Just got a mailing at my HOUSE in chicago that i got waitlisted at Fordham, one of my top choices. Funny how they didnt send it to my school mailing address like they're supposed to since thats my current address, and I got no e-mail from them. Do either of these things mean anything? Also can someone who got waitlisted there tell me EXACTLY what the form says? I called home and asked what it said and i cant believe what I was told is accurate-- theres no way it can say "Well make a decision by August 1st" when every other school in the world needs your full deposit before that date, lol. Any idea what % of the waitlist they admitted in past years? Thanks and sorry for creating a new thread :)

Choosing the Right Law School / Employment Data for Tulane?
« on: April 02, 2008, 03:21:29 PM »
I just joined these boards and i noticed for Duke and Vanderbilt the schools have released, or somebody has somehow compiled a listing on google docs of all the latest grad employment and salary history. Anybody have one for Tulane law grads? If not I'll go e-mail them and ask :)

Choosing the Right Law School / Best school for sports law?
« on: April 02, 2008, 12:50:31 AM »
Will make this easy-- maybe someone here can help me out!.... i got into tulane law, they have 1 of only 2 sports law certification programs in the country-- tons of schools dont even offer courses on sports law.....the really only other school i might get into is emory, i got waitlisted there. Q is this-- to get into such a rare field as sports law, would it be more advantageous to go to the signigficantly better school, 22 ranked emory, or go to the 48 ranked tulane who has connection swith people in the industry, counselors to help yopu find specific sports related law jobs, etc........could i find the same jobs if i went to a school where i didnt take any sports law courses? Any help would be appreciated :)

I got 75k at tulane for scholarship but i really dont care about that-- i just wanna go wherever i have the best shot to get into the field i am interested in! Thanks again guys

So yeah, im going to law school and i guess this is retarded of me to have done, but surely im not the only one right!? Im in a princeton review course, and for whatever reason maybe I assumed that princeton review signs us up for the actual test, or that you could sign up for the test at any time, or just maybe the prineton review people would remind us that we have to register for the test.....whatever the reason its May 20 (or is it May 21 now) and the late registration deadline was may 18-- has this happened to anyone thats taking the June 11 test or has it happened to anyone in the past and what is LSAC's policy here? Thanks!
