I think I am going to go to both Colorado and Chicago-Kent's admitted students' day/weekend bc I still cannot decide.  Does anyone think this is stupid?  Is anyone doing the same thing?  I am hoping one just feels better or something?!

Wait List / Waitlisted at Northwestern
« on: March 25, 2005, 01:23:55 PM »
Anyone else?  I think I am going to stay on it, but I am not expecting much!

I have narrowed my search down to Colorado and Chicago-Kent.  I still haven't heard from Northwestern or Columbia yet, but I am not holding my breath.  The problem I have is that they are very different schools in very diff. atmospheres!

I like CO bc I could go skiing a lot.  It is (barely) in the First Tier and is the best school in CO. Boulder is awesome too...
I don't really know anyone there though and they are building a new school, but right now the building itself kinda sucks.

Chicago-Kent seems to be heading up.  I like the technology bent and I want to go into IP and it's ranked #13 or #12 or something for that.  They also have an awesome new building.  I also have a lot of friends and potential roommates in Chicago, which is a positive and a negative.

So what does everyone think?

Oh yeah  I have a $10K scholarship to Colorado for the first year and I am expecting some serious $$$ from Chicago-Kent.  I am applying to their Honors Scholars Program and I haven't heard if I got an interview yet.

Money might become the deciding factor.

I found out I got into U of Colorado about 2 or 3 weeks after applying.  How do I ask them about my chances for a scholarship?  Has anyone just called up a school and asked?

What should I expect?

Where should I go next fall? / school for 165 LSAT?

So a 165 puts you a little under all the best schools and a little over all the average --where to apply now?
What do you all think?

Recommendations / third rec only so-so should I send it at all?
« on: November 18, 2004, 02:44:36 PM »
so my third recommender sent me a copy of the rec and it is pretty blah -- kd is a good student, a good worker and will succeed in law school -- that's pretty much all it said.  Should I send it at all?
My plan was to only send it to the schools that recommended three, but not to those that didn't specify. 
Do you guys think a so-so rec actually hurts someone at all?
It's from a local attorney that I took one class with and then worked for.  He knows me really well, so I was surprised that he didn't put more effort into the rec., but I think he thought he was writing an excellent rec.

Law School Applications / Recommender sent me a copy
« on: November 09, 2004, 04:57:27 PM »
Help!  One of my recommenders sent me a copy of the recommedation and he wrote at the bottom of the rec that he sent me the copy!  I signed the LSAC sheet that waived my right to see it, but he did it anyways, do you guys think it hurts me?
