General Off-Topic Board / East Coast Ski Advice
« on: August 21, 2005, 01:05:36 PM »
I have never skied east of the Rockies.  Now that I am living on the east coast I need to find out more about the skiing out here.  I would like to book a vacation for the family over Christmas break.  I am looking at Tremblant, but I do not know anybody who has skied there that can give me any insight.  Any advice or suggestions from the east coasters out there?

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Vandy Ding
« on: March 28, 2005, 07:48:05 PM »
I received my final two decisions today.  The first was a ding from Vandy.  The second was a prefered non-resident waitlist from UVA.  I am glad that the application process is complete (excpet for the waitlist at UVA).  Now it is time to finalize my decision.

I just received my denial from Utah.  My first thought was that it had to be yield protection.  But on further reflection, they just might not like my application.  After all I received my undergrad from a ttt online university.  Quite frankly, becasue of my online degree, I have been suprised by many of the acceptances that I have received.  So I guess it should not come as a suprise when some law schools frown upon it. 

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / First Thin White Envelope
« on: February 22, 2005, 04:19:18 PM »
I received my first rejection today.  It came in the proveribial thin white envelope from Duke.  According to LSN my index is at the bottom range of what they are accepting.  Combined with the fact that I went to an online university, I knew my chances were a crap shoot at best.  I am glad that this rejection came after several acceptances though, otherwise I'd probably be pretty bummed out.  As it stands I have already been accepted to the school that I will likely attend, so it's all good. 

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / UNLV
« on: February 09, 2005, 02:52:49 PM »
Just received the acceptance letter today.  First page was a form letter with the notice of admission.  Second page was another form letter with an offer of an $8900 renewable scholarship, which would cover the full amount of in-state tuition.   When I started this process, UNLV was my number one choice for several reasons.  Now circumsatnces have changed and I am not so sure.  However the scholarship will give me something to think about.

Now don't get me wrong, I have friends who are Texan, but what I want is a mostly non-Texan school in a mostly non-Texan area.  You see, the Texans already have their own school down in Austin, and through their despicable use of AA superbly qualified candidates are ignored so that Texans can have a shot at practing the law.  Well one thing leads to another and the next thing you know they are practically running the whole government.  I'm fed up.  Those Texans can hang together all they want, but I do not want anything to do with them.  If it means freezing my ass off in Vermont, or any cold as balls TTT north of the mason-dixon line, I'll do whatever it takes to stay away from those Texans.  I wish them all the best, but I just do not want to be around them. 

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Why T14?
« on: December 02, 2004, 09:03:49 AM »
!4 seems like an arbitraty number to me.  Why are the top 14 schools grouped into a single elite bunch?  Why not top 10, top 15, or top 20?  Even top 12 would make more sense than 14.  Is there someting wrong with UT that prevents it from being considered on the same level as the T14.  If UT leapfrogged Georgetown on the U.S News list, would we still talk T14?  Any thoughts or comments?

My index number for 6 of the the 14 schools that I have applied to so far is either 3.3 or 3.4.  I find it hard to believe that this is a coincidence.  Is there anyway to iterpret this number and use it to evaluate my chance of admission.  The schools are as follows. 3.3: Stanford, Univ. of Ga., and USC. 3.4: Duke, SMU, and Vanderbilt. 

I discovered this db just a few days ago.  I can't believe how much great info it has.  I wish I would have found it long before I sent out all of apps.  Thanks in advance for any input.
