Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / A Phone Call
« on: June 11, 2008, 07:06:23 AM »
Hello all,
  I'm on a waitlist for a school, and they called me yesterday.  I didn't get to my phone, and when I called back she was in a meeting.  Although I fully intend on going somewhere else, I'm still curious - would a LS call to reject you? Opine away!

Choosing the Right Law School / Commuting Post 2
« on: April 21, 2008, 08:34:14 PM »
Wanted to get some opinions from people on what they thought the advantages and disadvantages were to commuting (about an hour) compared to paying an assload of NYC rent to be super close to the LS (dorms or otherwise overpriced Greenwich Village apartments).

Law School Admissions / First post, first question
« on: February 01, 2008, 12:47:53 PM »

I've been lurking on LSD since I took the LSATs back in September..I was trying to figure out when the scores were up and found a forum full of people nervously waiting for scores to be released.. I quickly turned into one of those constant refreshers when I realized the day I had decided to start looking when scores was actually the day the scores came out (it was a Friday?).  I just started lurking around again, trying to see when decisions were made and stuff like that. 

Let's see..I've got a 3.64/166, pretty average, I don't know.  I never knew there was such (for the lack of a better word) obsession and insanity over GPAs, median scores, percentiles, and uh, what exactly is an admissions index number?  For the most part, you all make me want to stick my head in the sand when it comes to law school. 

I applied late to law school it seems by most standards (all apps in on Jan 5th), and I've heard back from one.

I've applied to about 11 schools and I applied to St. John's Law cause its close to my hometown. I just got the letter this week, and they offered me a full ride. 

My big question is, is it insanity not to accept a full ride? Like say I get into Fordham or Cardozo, both schools I would love to go to, am I absolutely insane to go one of those, and not somewhere basically offering me a free education?
