I can't wait either. I'm a bit nervous as well. Civil pro seems like it's going to be one of the tougher classes since there's already so much work for it.

I've started some of the readings already, but I'm still in denial that I'm going to be stuck indoors reading this weekend! 

One more day! See you at orientation tomorrow!

Hey whatwhat,

I'm going casual.  When I went to the meet in greet in April, everyone was in jeans and a nice top.  NESL is a really chill laid back atmosphere from what I gather, but i don't think you can go wrong with business casual and since wed's orientation is so short, it won't be so bad. 

I'm glad someone else here is in D1!  What's up with civil pro and the "special" assignment for select students?

Evergreatful,

Bought my books the other day for $517.  There are a few used books.  Problems in contracts and civil procedure I got used but the rest were all new ones when i was there. 

Guess I'll trek my laptop unless people say otherwise on the first day of orientation.

Hey everyone..

I'm definitely out of the club. I'm in section D1 with Ansah, Cox, Herlihy and Lustig.  Are there sections within sections?

I'm glad to finally see people posting up on for our school!  Dumb question but do we need to bring our laptops the second day of orientation for intro to law?

Law School Applications / Re: Yale Obsession

I applied last year (2004-2005), went complete on 12/17, and didn't hear anything until a rejection email on April 22, which I've pasted below. My girlfriend is applying this year -- she went complete on 12/27 and still hasn't heard anything.

Subject: Yale Law School - Decision

Dear XXXXXX,

We know that deposit deadlines for many schools are quickly approaching.  In the interest of time, we wanted to provide you with your decision by e-mail.  We regret that we are unable to offer you admission for the fall of 2005.

We received almost 4,000 applications for an entering class of 185 students.  Given this ratio, many highly-qualified applicants have to be turned away.  The faculty, all of whom read admissions files, work hard to reach these difficult decisions as fairly as possible, knowing the outcome will inevitably prove disappointing to many people.

We appreciate your interest in Yale Law School and extend to you our best wishes for the future.

Sincerely,

Craig L. Janecek
Director of Admissions

Law School Applications / Re: Harvard Reapplication

I was rejected last year, re-took the LSAT, went up 10 points, and was accepted this year.

I applied last year and didn't get into any of my top choices. I re-took the LSAT, went up 10 points, re-applied with the same two letters from last year plus one new one and got into my top choices.

Bottom line is that the old letters should be just fine, although most schools would like to get one new one. Most schools retain files from the last few cycles so you don't need to re-submit old letters, but a few don't -- make sure you ask at each school you're re-applying to.

Sounds similar to the situation at Harvard last year (the previous incarnation of Toby was forced out mid-cycle).

Thanks for the info. Yale's the only place I haven't heard from (complete 12/27) -- so was just wondering what to expect if I get waitlisted.

Does anyone know why Yale is being slower than usual this year? What are these mysterious "unavoidable circumstances"?

Also, does the waitlist letter indicate when to expect a final decision?
