Wait List / Re: UT and Vandy Waitlists; Nothing on GWU
« on: July 03, 2007, 10:12:43 AM »
Vandy took two off the waitlist. 166 + 3.6 it looks like.

How do you find that kind of stuff out?

Law School Applications / Re: Why XXX School?
« on: July 02, 2007, 05:21:42 PM »
You should be doing everything you can to get into every school you can. Writing a "why school X" essay can only help. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra time to write the essays.

Law School Applications / Re: Getting Fee Waivers
« on: July 02, 2007, 03:14:45 PM »
1. Region doesn't matter
2. Environment doesn't matter
3. GPA/LSAT/URM status- that's all that matters for fee waivers, I believe
4. Yes; the earlier the better, as is the case with all things related to law school apps
5. You can definitely ask for a fee waiver. It's not a crazy request by any means, so go for it.

I received the call at 1:30pm EST (10:30am PCT- where the school is).

I'll be surprised if you see a common time that people receive notification, however.

Wait List / Re: George Washington Waitlist

FWIW, I heard from an extremely reliable source that GW (FT) was over their expected normal 1st deposits by about 30. They usually have about 490 after the initial deposit, but this year they were at 520 or so.   

hey thesingingbass...i was just curious..did your source have anything to say after the 2nd deposit for GW (FT)? Did they get as many deposits or more or less?

No, sorry. He only had information about the number of first deposits.

Law School Applications / Re: Accepted/Rejected/Numbers

I'm new on this site...I am an incoming college freshman seriously considering law school. There are many threads detailing the application process, but few posters list their stats. Could people who have recently completed the law school applicaton cycle post the schools they applied to and where they were accepted/rejected/attending and what stats they had at the time? Thanks

Wait List / Re: LOCI question...?

A former dean I spoke with suggested doing this, saying that spots are more likely to open up for part-time applicants than full-time. I don't know that that's the case at all schools, but I can't imagine it would hurt your chances for admission in any way, so why not?

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Hastings class of 2010
« on: June 18, 2007, 05:32:41 PM »
1. I like a lot of different things. I'm just looking for some general suggestions for places to visit. Like, "If you could only visit 7 places in the Bay area, what would they be?" types of places.     
2. I do drink (mostly beer and wine), and I'm more of a bar person than a club person. 
3. I like pretty much every kind of food except seafood. Indian, thai, italian, french, ethiopian, chinese, mexican, vietnamese are all great. I'm not a vegetarian.
4. Museums are great.

I'll be visiting Hastings (and the rest of the Bay area) in a few weeks. Anyone have a few 'must see' suggestions (other than the typical touristy spots)? I've been out there before, but I'll be traveling with someone that hasn't. The only other thing to keep in mind is that we will be using public transportation for whatever we do. Thanks!
