General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: HLS Class of 2010!!!

Does anyone have the link for the suggeted reading list?  I can't seem to find it; maybe it got lost with the J.D. Admissions' site retro-fit.

nada from ABA or JKC (though I imagine JKC will be coming soon)

I've been telling myself that for the last week, but the mail brought no news today...

So, we obsess about everything else on this board.  How about outside scholarships?  Everyone who's found or still looking for outsides scholarships feel free to post.

Specifically, I'm still waiting on the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation.  Anybody heard anything?  It's past mid-June by my book.

It's probablly historically protected, which I'm beginning to think is code for we don't want to spend the $$. ;)

Has anyone received any info on lenders, yet?  I have no idea how to decide on that especially given the recent scandals w/loan companies.

Law School Applications / Re: Résumé?

Got my waitlist today.  It was date 4/30 but postmarked 5/1!

From their website:

Notification of Acceptance
The law school uses a rolling admissions process, acting upon applications throughout the admissions season as they are completed. However, some applications are held until the committee has reviewed the entire applicant pool. This second review occurs during April, at which time the class will be filled. (A small number of applications will be held for possible use in filling vacancies that may occur during the summer.)

The Office of Admissions will make every effort to send applicants a first response (accept, deny, or wait list) by April 30.
To secure a place in the entering class, applicants accepted for admission must pay a deposit.

Seems to me like they failed to make every effort!

Congrats to everyone who sent in their deposits, I know I feel so much better knowing where I'll be in the fall! Also, here's what it seems to me most of us have left to do before August:

- financial aid/loan stuff
- figure out housing
- get college certifications

Is there anything major I'm missing? As you can probably tell, I'm a list person...
Official Transcripts, too.

I was waiting for my letter for a while, and it turns out it was sent to my parent's house and they had it there for a few days. Do you guys have two addresses?
Nope.

Nice!  Let us know what they say...

A decision letter was mailed to you 4/30/07.   
The application fee is not refundable.


Haha...I mean I wasn't planning to go there anyway, and I obviously didn't expect the application fee refund.  I was really just doing it to be funny/annoying.  Hopefully if enough people request their fee back, they'll reform their admissions process a little.  Although, I have no idea about the logistics of admitting a couple hundred people from thousands of applications, so maybe I shouldn't complain.

I don't know about the logistics either, but seing as how every other school I applied to has a similar load and was able to give a decision before now... Stanford get your act together!
