jusy got an update email, saying they wouldnt go to the wait list til june 16, looks like more waiting. anyone else get an email?

June 16th is the postmark date BTW, so my guess is 2 weeks after that.

I'm on the BC wl and I'm figuring the same thing with their June 5th 2nd deposit deadline.

Law School Applications / Re: So...Suggestions on Cycle 2?

Some people below the medians, and below the 75% HAVE TO BE cut or else it wouldn't be a median.  It's probably not that your PS sucked, just that everyone else's was better.

Retake the LSAT dude. Nothing else even matters. As long as your PS is coherent, they don't really care. They read a billion of those things and the chances that yours will stand out in a good way is pretty slim.

Very true. Whens the last time you saw someone on LSN getting into schools out of their range that wasen't an URM? If you look at the charts than you'll see for most schools its purely a numbers game

He was in over the 75% for the LSAT for many of the school's he applied to.

Non-Traditional Students / Re: Sell the house or try to keep it?
« on: May 31, 2008, 10:04:17 AM »
my husband and I are selling our place... and we'd be willing to take just enough so that we don't LOSE money on the condo.  yeah it sucks to lose on an investment, but law school is another investment, so we're moving from one to the next.  some people rent and some people sell, it's a personal decision.

But see, you're not going to lose money on an investment.  You're going to lose money on the sale of your home.  Housing is not an investment.  That's the lesson that everyone needs to take away from the last few years.  Historically, bank CDs offer about the same rate of return as a house - just above inflation.  And if you are like most people, you spend more "fixing up" and decorating their home than you realize, and so whatever gain you make from a sale is greatly eaten up by that excess spending.  You just don't realize or feel it because you spent the money over a long period of time. 

beach bum, I feel for you, but you are realizing that "using other people's money" comes with a huge cost - the cost of your freedom.

your correction of me is true - housing is not really an investment anymore in this market :(

and this may sound stupid but susie orman says "people > money" - if it's going to come between you and your goals and your freedom, then just let it go.
