Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Emory admit weekend
« on: April 04, 2005, 02:39:21 PM »
I'll be there this weekend!  Who else?

Also--does anyone have info on the reception for Friday night?  I have already RSVP'd for it, but I can't find the invite with the specifics.  Can someone out there PM me with the details?  I'd appreciate it!

General Off-Topic Board / Welcome to Club Purgatory!

…a.k.a. The Waitlist Lounge!

We’re a very selective club, permitting only those LSDers with 5 or more waitlists!  We’ve got an adcom posted at each entrance, and he’s willing to toss you on your soft spots if you try to get past the velvet rope with a perfect 10-0 run on your law school applications.

We’re looking for all you party animals who maybe didn’t take that “GPA” thing so seriously during undergrad… 

…Or perhaps you decided to have a few drinks the night before the LSAT “to take the edge off,” and wound up with a massive hangover and no recollection as to how to complete logic games...

For whatever reason, you’ve received multiple, “It’s not you, it’s me” letters from various reach and target law schools, willing to string you along until your heart and wallet are exhausted from the endless waiting.


While you’re here, be sure to check out the special VIDP (Very Important Disillusioned Persons) area, designated for those of you who six months ago boasted of your outstanding “extras,” certain that your sub-par numbers wouldn’t cloud the fact that you used to tutor inner-city kids in pre-algebra for half a semester.  And you were sure your “stellar” LORs would ensure at least a “It’s-not-what-you-know” seat in the fall class of the law school of your dreams. 

So come on down!  There’s plenty of good music, hot bartenders, and plenty of booze to take your mind off your sorry existence…ladies in free 'til midnight, and half-off cover for anyone with more than 6 rejection letters in hand!

…and for the rest of you who’ve been accepted to your dream schools, please don’t try to sneak in incognito.  Save your money for those seat deposits the rest of us only wish we could be making…

General Off-Topic Board / A question for the NYC folks
« on: February 23, 2005, 08:08:38 AM »
I just got off the phone with my mom, who decided last night that she and my dad want to take a "road trip" (they're old hippies and love this stuff) to NYC to see The Gates in Central Park.  They want me to go; it's a 12-hour drive and I have to work this weekend, so I'd have to figure out how to get out of my waitressing job, take Friday off from my real job, and spend 24 hours in the car with my parents, all to see a bunch of orange flag things.  The exhibit ends on Sunday, so I feel like I owe it to myself to go, but is this crazy?  I love New York, but I don't think I'd get to spend a whole lot of time there, just Friday afternoon and Saturday, before driving back on Sunday. 

For those of you who live there, or have seen it, what did you think? Is it that cool? 

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / In at Emory!
« on: February 16, 2005, 03:59:01 PM »
I know there's already a thread (or three) about Emory acceptances, but since I'm so excited about mine, I figured I deserved a new one! :D

Letter dated 2.10.05, 163/3.5.  It's my first non-safety acceptance, so I'm really, really happy! :)

Also in at IU Indianapolis, letter dated 2.9.

General Off-Topic Board / Clubbers vs. Bar Rats
« on: February 14, 2005, 08:58:16 AM »
Based on the popularity of the "Club LSD" thread, I thought I'd ask: which do you prefer, bars or clubs?  I am definitely a bar-goer...I've never really gotten into the club scene. I favor a good bar with a good jukebox over a club any day, but I think this varies by region and age.  So which is it?

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Vandy waitlist
« on: January 29, 2005, 03:24:25 PM »
Letter dated 1.27.05, 163/3.52. 

Better than the ding I was expecting, but still disappointing for my first response. 

Law School Admissions / Sending in a new addendum
« on: January 20, 2005, 07:16:44 AM »
I have an addendum to my pending applications thanks to a recent event that I think will make me look like a more competitive applicant.  I also realize that I'm going to be waitlisted (if not dinged) at several of the schools to which I applied.  So should I send the addendum now or wait until I'm waitlisted?  I don't think the addendum would make the difference between a waitlist and a ding, and would really only emphasize the non-numbers parts of my application. Any thoughts?

General Off-Topic Board / A question for the ladies ;)
« on: January 05, 2005, 01:41:41 PM »
Have any of you read the book Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office?  I got it recently as a gift from my dad and it's fantastic.  It could easily be classified in the category of cheesy self-help books, but it's not like that.  Because we're all headed to law school, I thought I'd recommend it--it's a great book for a female attorney-to-be!

General Off-Topic Board / What's everyone doing tonight?
« on: December 04, 2004, 04:01:15 PM »
Me: getting in the shower in about 10 minutes, going to dinner and drinks with friends, and then drunk ice skating at the Pan-Am Center. Soooo pumped!!!  I haven't been ice skating in years!

Tomorrow: getting my procrastinating butt out of bed to finish applying to law schools.  I WILL finish tomorrow, thanks to a little dose of reality from a few people on this board :)

Anyone else have exciting plans?

General Off-Topic Board / I JUST DRANK A RED BULL!
« on: November 30, 2004, 11:46:01 AM »
...and a Diet Cherry Coke!!!  And I'm sitting at my desk singing a little song about it!!!  Bow-chikkaaa-bowwow...(that was caffeine porn music if you couldn't tell)... :D

Anyone else having a hyper afternoon? Perhaps it's because I got word from LSAC last night that my LORs are FINALLY in and I can apply to law school and get it over with. Or perhaps it's because I'm a baaaad maaaammmmmmma jammmmmmma...woohoo!

How's YOUR afternoon going?
