Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Harvard Rejection
« on: March 08, 2005, 09:10:14 AM »
Got rejected at Harvard yesterday/today.  They sent the letter to my old address, so my housemate broke the news to me over e-mail - much better than having to physically open that filthy letter myself. 

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / On "Reserve" at Columbia
« on: March 02, 2005, 08:28:16 AM »
Just got the letter this morning. 

They say they'll review all applicants in June.  I have to decide whether or not I want to stay on this.  Columbia would be a top choice, but I really wanted to have a decision made by May. 

This one hurts.

Choosing the Right Law School / NYU Admit Days?

Hey does anyone know what days NYU is having their admitted student events? Their mailing went to my permanent address, and their website is horrible.  Thanks.

Incoming 1Ls / Big Law to Public Interest Career?
« on: January 26, 2005, 08:08:15 PM »
So, I'm sitting here trying to strategize about possible career paths and was curious what others, in similar situations, might be thinking. 

Right now my plan is most likely to try and take a Big Law job straight out of law school, and slave away for a few years to pay off what I expect to be monstrous debt and perhaps establish some sort of financial nest-egg.  After that, I'd like to transition into a public intersest work of some sort (or political/governmental perhaps.)

Ultimately, public interest work of some sort is where my passion is and what I want to do with my career, but I'm a bit hesitant about taking a detour through Big Law to get there.  Anyone else thinking about trying this sort of path? I guess the other options for PI work are: (1) Go to the school which will offer the least amount of debt or (2) Try and make the most of the school's LRAP.  Any thoughts?

Law School Admissions / Cornell Fee Waiver - 3 months after LSAT
« on: January 24, 2005, 10:49:09 AM »
Anyone else who took the October LSAT just receive a fee waiver from Cornell?

Why the heck did they wait so long to mail this to me? I would have definitely applied there if I got this earlier (still thinking about doing so.)

I wonder what my chances of admission/$$$ would be if I applied this late in the game. (The fee waiver also says the Feb. 1 application deadline has been waived.)

General Off-Topic Board / New Douglas Coupland Book

I just realized Douglas Coupland's new book, Eleanor Rigby, was released yesterday.

Any Coupland fans here? Anyone picked it up yet?

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / In at Duke & Cardozo
« on: January 05, 2005, 12:58:09 PM »
I got in at Duke via an e-mail from Dennis Shields this morning, and also received a letter from Cardozo (dated 12/30) via snail-mail!

Stats are in my LSN link below.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / In at NYU (RD) and USC (EA)
« on: December 27, 2004, 10:16:23 AM »
Just got the letters from both today; I was waiting on USC for a few weeks, but I was absolutely shocked by the NYU letter because I just went complete last week!

I hope my quick turnarounds at Georgetown & NYU bode well for my other applications.
