Choosing the Right Law School / Emory Scholarship Information
« on: February 19, 2005, 04:48:28 PM »
I got a letter from Emory today saying that I'd been nominated for their full-ride plus 3000 dollars/yr scholarship (I think called the woodruff) but was cut in the final round. The funny thing: I haven't been accepted yet and they acknowledged that my app was till pending in the letter (which figures, give my LSAT). Anyone else get this or have any idea how to view this? Interesting stuff, hope it's good news.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / GW Waitlist
« on: February 11, 2005, 01:53:11 PM »
Just got waitlisted at George Washington. Only a big deal if I decide I want to be in DC over Boston I guess. Judging from LSN 2003-2004, the waitlist seems like a glorified rejection at this about right? Should I even bother sending anything else?

Choosing the Right Law School / 3 to go!!!!
« on: February 09, 2005, 01:41:09 PM »
So with Berkeley raining on my parade, and my decision that I'd rather be at BC than BU and either of those before I'd go to Minnesota, UNC, Washington and Lee, or Fordham, I've only got 3/18 applications left: Emory, Wash U (who doesn't notify RD non-autoadmits for several more weeks), and George Washington (who is officially taking forever). Anyone else apply to a bunch of places and starting to feel pretty OK about how things turned out? I mean, when worse case scenario is a perennial top 20's law school in one of the sweetest cities around, life ain't too bad, eh?

Choosing the Right Law School / BC v BU
« on: February 02, 2005, 05:23:11 PM »
Anyone else think they'd rather go to BC than BU? From what it sounds like, BC is going to come back up in the rankings anyway and has equally good if not better big firm job options. Also, I hear it has a better alumni network and generally has a better name. Not to mention, it's a little more aesthetic if you ask me--you get the suburbs and access to the city. Any opinions/experience?

Choosing the Right Law School / Withdrawal Application after Admission?
« on: January 18, 2005, 08:44:00 AM »
Hey All,

  I'm going through the process of withdrawling applications so I don't steal seats I won't take. I was wondering if it's appropriate/helpful to inform a school that has already accepted you that you won't be attending. I know they account for students not matriculating in issuing acceptances, but will doing so after being accepted still help another student get in? Do people do this? I'd feel a little bit arrogant doing so.

Beat the odds again on this one-- 3.92/160! Very, very excited. Good luck to all--LSAT isn't everything =), believe it or not, the four years you spend in school does count!

Anyone else get this letter? It specifically says it's not a waitlist...hmmm...

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Holy Shnikies GMU LSAT median
« on: December 11, 2004, 12:48:04 PM »
In the admission packet--admitted 2004 class had a median LSAT of 165... what a change from 2003 when 75th was 164. Tells me that they're on the move in the rankings. Certainly makes it a more attractive option in terms of overall law school ambition and future prospects! Oh, and it makes me feel like one lucky SOB.

If Berkeley or Wash U let me in, I think I'm going to streak the Indiana University Memorial Union--the largest in the nation. Likely, somewhere around the mezanine level, I'll be browbeaten naked by an overzealous IUPD officer and dragged to drunk tank even though I'll be completely sober. Ideally, I'll be offered pretrial and walk. Either way, I'll have to write a nice criminal addendum update which will subsequently disqualify me from admissions. But, the phone call would be worth it. And, if I get a call from a dean or admissions personnel, I'm going to promise then a hug and/or kiss (with or without tongue) upon arrival on campus. I apologize for this rant, but I'm sick as a dog and bored to death. Discuss amongst yourselves.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / In at GMU

Got a nice little phone call today at around noon saying they'd be mailing me an acceptance by Thursday. Pretty sweet deal. Pretty nice option to have. Now I just have to wait on Wash U, Ucal B, Boston U/C, and GW. Pretty nice in to have. Good luck to everyone!
