They will probably send the email at the end of the day.

Just looked at the email.  One of the deadlines was in fact today.

i don't know what words would matter right now because MY heart dropped when i saw your lsn profile and i don't even know u.  but i can't imagine how u must feel.   though i must tell you that everything happens for a reason.  maybe there is something better in store for you.  i know a few things about dissapointment but the most important thing is that you learn from it.  i wish u all the best luck, and hope that you won't let this prevent you from trying again. 

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: "Reserve" at Cornell
« on: April 27, 2005, 08:51:50 AM »
I too have been placed on reserve. I am also on Georgetown's waiting list. It's bad enough that we had to wait so long to get a decision and now we have to wait even longer. But I am definitely not taking myself off the list. I feel like I deserve a decision. I think that we all do, no matter what the outcome. I would only take myself off if I felt that I would not go and to increase other peoples chances. I wish all of you the best of luck
You would go to Cornell rather than stick with GWU and hope for a change at Georgetown? It seems simpler to just stick with a plan on living in DC rather than moving at the last minute to Ithaca, especially since Georgetown and GW are such good schools as is.

I've pretty much decided on GW.  I think that it's a great school.  But I don't think that I would get off of Cornell's reserve nor Georgetown's waiting list.  I wouldn't be thrilled about moving to Ithaca either.  Right now I would like to get a decision from both schools.  I haven't submitted any supplemental information so I'm not expecting much neither am I dissapointed.  Being accepted to a good law school was my aim, and I've reached that.  I'm just looking forward to doing what ultimately matters:becoming a good lawyer.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: My interesting situation

Everything that I am about to say is out of a mutual respect and love for all of those who went and are currently going through the process of applying to law school.  I am sure that those of us who took this process seriously have spent countless hours studying, writing our personal essay, preparing our applications and doing everything that we need to ensure that we were strong candidates.  So let me tell you, as I am sure others will that the decision that you are about to make should be one that is thought out CAREFULLY. 
One thing that I will beg you not to do is to go to a law school just because you think that you can get in just in time to make it for Fall 05.  I fear that would be a choice that you might regret. What do you know about these schools?  Will they offer you the type of program that you need?  Where do you want to work after law school?  These are all questions that you need to ask yourself.  If there is one thing that I have learned from applying to law schools is that you never do things last minute.  You never want to be on the end of an admission seasons unless you are the PERFECT candidate.  Time is a major factor and you need to use it wisely.  I don't want to deter you from your dreams, but I want you to be in the best situation possible.  Where you go to Law School is important for so many reasons, especially your personal well being.   

I am on the Regular waiting list and got the email today.  Mine is definitely not as positive.  They also left out tons of info.  It excludes talk about Financial Aid and is only 2 paragraphs.  Georgetown didn't say anything about us being strong candidates.    The letter also never mentions the fact that the first deadline is May 2nd.  They only mention a deadline of May 13.  It seems as though people on the Regular Waiting list are second rate (let's hope we don't have to go to you guys) candidates....

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: What's going on with Stanford?!?

yea when i called last week a woman told me that their class was full (she offered the info).  she said that they are only sending out rejections or waitlist letters.  as of yesterday there was still no decision on my file.  but, she did say that they want to notify everyone by april 30th. hope that helps  :)

So what exactly is Georgetown doing?  I think this bothers me, because I actually sent them a letter of interest when I got the waiting list letter.  But it seems like that was just a big waste of time, considering they have tons of people on other sorts of priority lists.  I just feel like other candidates who are on the waiting list should know this.
