Law School Admissions / ITT: We Say In Your Face!
« on: March 19, 2008, 09:37:30 AM »
My girlfriend and I were talking last night about the whole application process and it dawned on both of us the way certain co-workers judge you based on where you get into. As silly as it might sound, the thing that gives her the most apprehension is having to tell her co-workers that she did not get into a "good" law school. So, what happens if you do get into a good law school. Better than the one they got into? We agreed you just want to say "In Your Face!"

So, let's do it. Who else wants to say IN YOUR FACE!

Choosing the Right Law School / Does a possible recession have you worried?
« on: February 01, 2008, 08:03:54 AM »
It seems quite clear that the economy is on the brink of a recession. How that will affect various industries is unclear but for anyone thinking of making long term decisions now (i.e. law school) it should be something we all give a little thought to. So, I am wondering if anyone is thinking about the consequences of a recession and how that will affect their decision to go to law school?

Don't get me wrong: a possible recession can be seen in two ways. Potentially, this could be a great opportunity for some people. How do you view it and in what way do you see going to law school in that context? 

General Off-Topic Board / Chill Out Music Lists
« on: January 21, 2008, 04:02:07 PM »
We all know that applying to law school is stressful. There are many ways to cope with that stress. If you are like me, music is as much therapy as entertainment. So, I thought we could all contribute some of our chill out music lists.

After a day of work, I like to listen to:

1. Mogwai-"Hunted by a Freak"
2. Air- "Mike Mills"
3. Mogwai- "Auto Rock"
4. Amelie Soundtrack- "La Valse de Amelie, Orchestral Version"
5. A Perfect Circle- "Vanishing"
6. Fiona Apple- "Across the Universe"
7. Massive Attack -"Antistar"
8. Royksopp- "So Easy"
9. Radiohead-"Street Spirit"
10. Radiohead- "Karma Police"
11. Zero 7- "This World"

Law School Admissions / Michigan Email
« on: January 10, 2008, 09:29:00 AM »
Did anyone else get an email from Michigan trying to alleviate concerns about the length of time it is taking them to make a decision on their file? At first, I read the email as a waitlist but, upon further reading, it does not appear to be one. The email was written to "early applicants" who have not yet received a decision. To be honest, I am not sure an email like that can be taken in a positive light.
