I wouldnt take Cornell over Vandy anyway... unless you have some passionate distaste for Tennessee...

I wouldn't either...it just irritates me that it takes them this long to decide I'm not good enough for their school. lol

Yeah a whole lot of good that EA program did us.  Apply early so they can screw around with the application for an even longer period of time.

Mine changed to Early Action Complete last week and then Decision today.  So I guess my rejection letter is in the mail.

I have spoke with an attorney at Lane Powell and a former prosecutor from Oregon.  Both stated that Seattle U grads were excellent and that they threw away applications from Gonzaga grads.

Acceptances / Re: W&M - Fin Aid Letter Received
« on: March 03, 2006, 05:09:22 AM »
I got the letter as well.  I wish mine was as good as yours.  It would require $10,400 in private loans for me to attend W&M.

Acceptances / Re: The Official Scholarships Thread - 2005/2006

UIUC- $15,000 maintain academic standing
W&M -$10,000 + $4,000 stipend (as Stephon says "part time job")
George Mason - $10,000 (declined offer)

3.64/166

I have a couple awards and did two years of Mock Trial but I don't think it helped out any.  Not really sure.

Acceptances / Re: Accepted at Gonzaga

You may already know about Spokane (I don't know if you are from the area).  If not you might want to give Spokane a vist.  The biggest problem with Gonzaga is that you have to live in Spokane. 


Random story about Spokane.  I live 80 miles south of Spokane in a small little town that lacks a 7-11.  I drove up to Spokane for a slurpee (and other shopping) one weekend and then returned home, sat down in front of the television and started watching cops.  This episode took place in Spokane.  First call of the show, someone tried to steal a 6-pack of beer from the 7-11 I went to.

Acceptances / In at Iowa
« on: February 22, 2006, 07:27:13 PM »
I'll admit I applied to Iowa because they are ranked 22nd.  Anyone know anything else about them?  I've never heard anyone really talk about them, but I figure if they are top 25 they have to be doing something right.

Law School Applications / Re: Annoying law schools....

I agree with those saying Case and Denver. 

Today I got something from Golden Gate Unviersity, which pissed me off because I thought it was an acceptance from someone when I first looked in the mail box. 

So I open it anyway and read the letter and find this gem: "Finally, on December 9, 2005, Golden Gate University School of Law was placed on probation by the American Bar Association (the ABA) for the first time bar passage rate for our California bar takers."  Who in their right mind would go to this school at this point?   If the best thing you can say in your letter to me about your school is that your bar passage rate is so bad that you have been placed on probation, you need to fire your PR people.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: u. of washington: what's it like??
« on: February 13, 2006, 03:58:12 AM »
(boston and ny both get more rain per annum)

Let me begin by explaining that I go to the UW's rival school WSU.  That being said my commments are mostly directed towards the weather in the area.

While what Zorak says is true, there is a little more to the story.  The total amount of rain is less than Boston and NYC, but it rains for a longer period of time in Seattle.  There is usually a constant state of drizzle, no real downpours.  (The weathermen love the phrase "Rain turning to showers, with the occasional sunbreak.")  And for those brief moments when the rain stops, the sky remains grey and depressing.  Sunbreaks are the rare occasions when the sun makes an apperance for more than two seconds.  You will also hear that the "mountains are out" meaning that the mountains are visible because the clouds have cleared slightly.

While it is true that the summers are usually nice, the summers are very short.  I usually tell people that we have 2 seasons: Rain and August.

Further the mascot of the UW is a Husky.  Everyone knows that a Cougar could beat the tar out of a Husky.
