Law School Applications / Re: Toby Stock Call Thread

don't forget how many calls he actually has to make - there is plenty of time to still get your call.  the guy calls something like 1000 people over approx. 4 months.  lets assume that is 80 days (5 day work week) - he has to make something like 12 calls per day - and that's two hours of his time assuming the calls are approx 10 minutes each.  and we know he probably hasn't been making that many calls so far - so there are still plenty of calls to make.

he's definitely not in chad.

although, in regards to the other conversation, i do wonder why 300 or so people don't get in after the phone call.  if their numbers were on the verge of rejection, what would a 5 or 10 minute phone call do?  maybe it's not just a "psycho screen" like some have suggested?

who knows the answer but i bet there are plenty of people who embellish their softs.  so ts may ask some detailed questions about their interests/softs, etc and realize their application is not a great representation of their real experiences.  also, alot of them might just be waitlisted based on other their numbers, etc.

Anything is possible, but that would require that he have access to applications on the road.  Back when applications were entirely paper-based that would be ridiculous, but even in the electronic application era it still seems kind of unlikely; he would have taken them with him to Chad (Africa)?  On the other hand, it seems to be a pretty common practice to blog from your laptop while sitting in the airport, waiting in your hotel, etc.

Really not trying to be a wet blanket  ;)  Just couldn't help but chime in, since it's a topic of interest to me, too. 

how do you know he was in chad?  wasn't that a blog from some 2L student?

I dunno, from that email it sounds like he'll be out starting tomorrow through the end of the month. Maybe it's just not gonna happen.

well he may have sent out a few before his trip so that he can make the calls as soon as he gets back.  i bet a whole bunch will get sent the week of Oct. 27th.

Are you supposed to put down if friends/family read your application?  It is asking if you received any assistance in preparing this application.
