Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Change in HLS 1L Curriculum

This sounded really interesting to me, so I thought I'd pass it on:

Law School Admissions / The Chances Thread
« on: September 22, 2006, 12:38:22 PM »
Let me be your magic 8-ball.  I have compiled a relatively accurate way of gauging trends in admissions, and I would like to impart that knowledge to inquiring minds.  I'm not responsible for any way that you use the information, and you must keep in mind that sometimes things change from one year to the next or sometimes weird results occur.  But on the whole, I stand by my system.

I only have information for the top 10 schools, and you'll have to be patient with me if I get deluged (either here or by other things in real life).  But give me a GPA and LSAT, and I'll see what I can do.

also, I apologize, but I don't have the ability to track the URM factor. 

Incoming 1Ls / Admits: What would you want from Harvard?

If you're disappointed with your t-shirt, then that's unfortunate.  There's nothing that can be done about it this year, but maybe next year they can improve.  If you have any ideas that aren't listed above, feel free to opine below.

Choosing the Right Law School / student perspective on HLS
« on: December 26, 2005, 12:25:16 PM »
I just thought I would offer a student's perspective on HLS.  I had a big mental block against Harvard when I started applying, and I heard lots of things that made me less than excited about the place.

however, since I've gotten here, I've been (almost) nothing but pleased.  so I would love to counter some of the mythical ways that Harvard is maligned, and offer a personal perspective on the way it really is here.  any questions?

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Harvard
« on: December 05, 2004, 09:40:17 AM »
I haven't been around here much, but I did say that I would come back here to talk about acceptances/rejections and to see where everywhere else is going.  I just recently got the exciting news from Harvard!  (my mail sucks, so I get everything later than most people).

Congrats to everyone else, and good luck to all of those who just took the LSAT!  (I know you already took the test; good luck avoiding anxiety for the next few weeks)

Law School Admissions / and I'm done

wow, this is an interesting feeling.

I know a lot of people have already finished, but I procrastinated and obsessed over my Yale application.  and now it has been submitted.  there is nothing left I can do except hope for acceptances.

anyone else have that same feeling?

Law School Admissions / want prediction for top 5?
« on: November 01, 2004, 08:51:54 PM »
I came up with spreadsheets which I think may give pretty accurate results for the top 5 schools (Yale, Stanford, Harvard, Columbia, NYU).  At least with respect to last year's numbers.  So if anyone wants predictions, just let me know.

but mainly I just wanted to increase my threadcount  ;)
