Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: GW Waitlist
« on: May 09, 2006, 10:24:31 AM »
I got the email last thursday may 4th and the packet yesterday.  i am also a splitter 168/~3.2.  the gpa is from a top ten private.  it seems like from lawschoolnumbers that those taken off the waitlist recently have an index of 3.2. after i was placed on the waitlist i sent in a letter of continued interest, and updated resume, and an additional letter of rec.  my letter of interest described my reasons for pursuing legal studies, my specific interest in gw, and my current activites.  my letter of rec was from an advisor of a student organization and describes my leadership roles in the organization since my previously submitted letters of rec were from academic professors and focused more on my academics.  i am psyched about gw!!!

i'm off the waitlist too!!!  I think I'm going to go there in the fall but I'm really upset with myself for not having visited gw while class was in session.  do you think it's worth visitng during the summer session?


i think that i am going to go to bc in the fall and i am looking into the brookline area.
how do you plan on commuting to bc?
i am under the impression that brookline is closer to the c or d line. 
are there areas of brookline that are close to the b line? which stop?

how does cardozo have so much money to throw around compared to other schools?
it's not like they have a lot of alumni

they are offering a lot more money then other lower ranked schools i have been accepted to

more bc info...

they break the class into 3 sections of about 90 students

generally, for summers in boston, you compete against harvard students, not bu students

the alums though, but weren't sure, that you can take classes that aren't offered in bc at bu or harvard

i just got back from the philly one.
it was a little different than the chicago one since it was held at a restaurant and not a firm.
also, it was a sit-down lunch. there were about ten alums and about 6 admitted students.
the alums generally were in suits or shirt and ties since they were in the middle of a work day
while the admitted students were in business casual.

it was definitely worth going.  it was nice meeting the older alums (including a judge) and seeing that they still take the time to give support to their school and help recruit, but i got the most info from the more recently graduated alums.  i didn't really get a chance to talk to my fellow admitted students. 

among many other things, i learned that bc's legal writing is taught by a real instructor and not  3L students, it's yearlong, taken seriously, and has more credits than some of the other more traditional first year classes

also, bc is restructuring their first year program for next year.  theyare adding criminal law.  also, previously the fall semester was extended and the final was in february while the spring term was short.  they are changing to the more traditional finals in december

hey all
i'm on the chicago waitlist
my question to my fellow waitlisters....

do any of you on the waitlist also have legacy?
i'm just wondering if i have an actual possiblity of being taken off the waitlist and i should pursue this
or if since i have legacy i'm being waitlisted more as a courtesy so that my parents keep
donating money

i'm going to one tommorrow so i can let you know then

this is the info i got emailed after asking

Registration               8:30 - 9:00
Welcome                    9:00 - 9:30
Overview                  9:30 - 10:30
Break                      11:00 - 11:15
Mock Class               11:15 - 12:00 Noon
Lunch                        12:00 - 1:00
Tours                       12:30 - 2: 00
Breakout Sessions      1:00 - 2:00
Students Panel           2:00 - 3:00

the most i could get out of them is the following...they are great at avoiding actually answering my's quite irritating

"We will have the schedule of the day’s events available when you arrive at the Open House.  If you are planning to attend the financial aid workshop, please arrive between 9:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.  The financial aid workshop is from 10-11:00.  We have a class scheduled at 11:00 taught by one of our IP professors, Joseph Liu.  This class is being taught specifically for the newly admitted students.  At noon, lunch will be served and the Dean will make welcoming remarks, followed by a student/alumni panel, tour, and reception."

ok addendum to that.  i don't think they are avoiding answering my questions, i now think that they are slightly disorganized and are answering my old emails instead of my new emails.  also, from what i can tell, the class i am scheduled for is a real IP class and not a mock class. since i have indicated that i am interested in ip law, i am guessing that everyone is scheduled in different classes base on their interests.
