Law School Admissions / Reapplication Questions
« on: November 24, 2006, 08:34:20 AM »
Hello LSD:

I was a frequent poster here some time ago but decided to delay going to law school for one year in order to work.  I am reapplying this cycle and was just wondering if there have been any significant changes of note.

I know the number of apps went down last year (I think 9%?), is it the same story this year?  How do things look for tier 2 California and Florida schools (namely Loyola, USD, and UMiami)?  When reapplying to the same schools (some I got into last year, some I was waitlisted/rejected at), is it okay to use the same personal statement and letter of recs?  Any tips for updating my resume?

Don't worry Brave, this poll is flawed. I'm the coolaid man. Whoever doesn't think I'm hot is on crack.

Hot coolaid?  NASTY.

I'm the only person that voted for JngleDave so far... c'mon people, step your game up!!!

10.. the greatest avatar EVER

Oh, I like you.  Or rather, send me pics, and I'll tell you exactly how much I like you.

Hmmm.. is it a good idea to send an online blogger with the sn "Package Inspector" my pics?  Try finding me on the NY LSD meetup album.

I haven't yet seen any evidence of that, Mr. Trbl, but I do hope your avatar might help some of them along. 

You're just not inspecting hard enough  ;)

Give the player the ball at midfield.  Let the player then dribble in on the goalie and take a shot.  The goalie can move at any time after the player makes the first touch.

 :D :D :D  This ridiculous debate needs to stop ASAP!!

Newayz, the best team won so here's a sambuka toast to the Azzurri!!!! 

Intriguing tourney, to say the least.  Cheers, mates!

Well, i havent been on this thread in quite some time, but I know a few of you are interested in U Richmond, so i have this peice of news for you:  they are currently taking students off their waitlists.  I was informed of this via email, with a message saying i'll be contacted within the next day or two.  Since i've already decided to work for a year and defer, I declined the offer (or possible offer).  Just an FYI

Italy. Sigh. I wonder if you were thinking this way when they played awfully against the US and against Australia. Their defence works only because of Cannavaro - the rest of the back line is confused and ordinary.

I am an admirer of strong defence. the problem ith Italy has always been that they over-rely on the long ball, and on the poacher's goal. Against the Germans, they shoed another side - their goals (both of them) were beautiful, and their passing as extraordinary. They didn't even attempt to cheat.

I don't think Italy played awfully against the US or Australia.  Once again, their over-reliance on defense exhibited a seemingly weak dsplay but keep this in mind:  vs US (who played out of their skin that day), Italy conceded ZERO shots on goal.  vs. Australia, they were down a man for nearly half the game and still managed to win, completely icing any semblance of Aussie attacks.  And, although Cannavaro's play has been exceptional, please understand that Italy's, and the World's, best defender, Nesta, was out.  That speaks volumes, in my opinion.

Newayz, I agree with you about Italy's retina-scarring long-ball, poacher, tactics.. and I truly loathe them for it.  The only reason I supported them this tourney is because I picked them in a pool.  On the bright side, Juventus and AC Milan seem to be on their way out of top-flight football, so maybe the change will produce a tactical shakeup.  

No too many crazy stories. It was awesome to watch Brazil practice, and to watch Ghana-Brazil game (my favorite game). We (my friend and I) had breakfast with Roger Cohen (a fellow Oxonian and the best writer about footbal, IMO). I enjoyed that a lot.
The Koreans, btw, are the most enthusiastic and rabid fans of any team or sport that I have ever seen! Crazy stuff. Made the English look tame, and the Brazilians look bland.
It as a blast. I'd do it again, that's for sure.

Your trip sounds incredible and I will most certainly try to attend WC 2010 in South Aftrica.  I'm gald you had a wonderful time.  The South Korean fans are amazing, and it was a joy to see them light up after the Frace game.
