One quick question: do you think that the recommendations that we submit as supplementary materials after the deferral should include our SSN or LSAC number. What do you think?

Hey, did anyone here have the chance to go to Columbia Law admit days? How was it? How were the classes? the studnets? the professors? Anything else worth noting?
What was the general atmosphere of the law school like? How helpful were the administrators?
Where should I go next fall? / Harvard's Arrogand Deferral Game: Thoughts, Frustrations, And Solutions« on: February 23, 2005, 09:33:44 AM »
Isn't it just so annoying to see so many well-qualified applicants being screwed over by Harvard? It is official, Harvard's arrogance has reached new heights. After the President of the university found it necessary to insult the scientific and mathematical skills of women, now, its law school has found a new way in which to alienate applicants- through its treacherous deferral system. Harvard, what's wrong with you? After 3-4 months of reviewing applications, the best answer you can come up is "I don'know!" (deferral). For goodness sake, what did you do in the last 3-4 months? Sleep over the applications??? I have wondered why so many Harvard law students decribe their law experience as unpleasant and depressing. Now, I know. Because Harvard radiates arrogant snobbism. It is not easy to deal with that kind of stuff on a daily basis.
You know what will be really cool? Imagine if all of the deffered candidates withdrew their applications; a mass boycot of Harvard, so to speak; the revenge of the powerless:) So, hypothetically, if all of the deferred applciants withdrew, Harvard will be stuck with admitting candidates with LSAT scores that are way below their averages. Doesn't it sound great? Imagine the surprise of teh admission officers when they discover that their Median LSAT has fallen to 165:) As a result, the US News bumps Harvard out of the top 10. Sweet dreams:) Of course, this is just a hypothetical. After all, although we hate Harvard for being arrogant snobs, most of us want to be part of their elitary snobbism. That's why, we will not withdraw. That's why we will let them play their arrogant, sneaky deferral game.
I got a dean's scholarship. It comes up to $35,000 a year. A very unexpected offer, considering the fact I had not heard from BU for months. That being said, I was also admitted to Columbia and UPenn. What would you decide if u were me. Take the money or go for the Ivy schools?
What are some of the coolest movie lines that u have seen?
A couple of weeks ago, I watched Surviving Christmas. A really dumb movie, but there was one line I really liked: "I feel bad drinking liquor I know you are gonna need:)" I've quoted that line quite often actually:)
The other one is from "As good as it gets" when Jack Nickolson tries to suck up to Helen Hunt by telling her that she makes him wanna be a better man. Often quoted as well:)
What are your favorites?
I just want to share with all of you, homies, that law school parties are off the hook:)
Last night, I went to the Widener party in downtown Harrisburg; the girls there were amazing. So, I guess, there is hope for all of you who will end up in third and fourth tier law schools. You will not get the reputation but u will get laid a lot:)
Anyway, Thumbs up for Widener chicks!

Hey, does anyone here know when the USC will request our LSDAS our reports? Why are they being so slow? It is quite amazing that the most competitive schools, Yale and harvard, are faster in requesting reports that less competitive ones like USC.

hey, I was just thinking that if I make it to a top 5 school, I will owe a significant part of my success to a number of people. first, I would have never made it without my mom. She always believed in me, even when I doubted myself, and I believe that this is the basis for success; somebody to believe in you.
Second, one of the professors at my school has taken me under her wing and greatly helped me to succeed. She has introduced me to various law professors and even some deans. Awesome person.
My law school advisor was incredible, too. She provided me with a lot of info regarding preparation opportunities for the LSAT.
What about you, guys? Who helped you most? To whom will you owe your success?
I have noticed that people who have really high LSAT's and GPA get a little bit complacent and do not put that much effort into the rest of the application stuff (Personal Stat.; Recommendations, etc.) Do you agree? It just appears that it is really easy to become cocky after you break 170:)
