So.. I'm abroad in Paris, so all my phone calls/mail from law schools are being forwarded to me by dear ole mum. Today UCLA's Dean of Admissions called me and I'm having a difficult time getting back in touch with him.. and it seems he's leaving town in a few hours! So, I mean, why would an admissions department call you? Did I do something horribly wrong? Would they ever call you just because something is incomplete or anything like that? Would they call you with questions, etc? AHHHHHHH

yuck yuck yuck. on the bright side, michigan is one of my top two schools and the other one i haven't sent in yet, so... hopefully i'll just get a full ride to mich and i'll get naked and paint myself blue and maize, etc etc.
i am, however, sending out nice emails to admissions people telling them my shoddy judgment and my shoddy internet screwed up (which is very true.. lsac only works for me in paris 1 out of every 15 tries.. and trying to add documents was a huge pain. lame internet!) and to hopefully update my application. since i'm applying very early and sending out a change early, before anyone's really reviewing, it.. might.. be ok? i only care about one school to which i did that anyway, but what a horrible feeling!

so..... sort of distracted over here in paris, i feel proud of myself when i submit ANY law school app. the thing is.. on my personal statement, i'm all like la la la i'm so great blah blah, and then it says
"which is why i'd be a great law student at university of michigan law school."
....which, of course, i meant to send to university of michigan. however.. i saved it as an available document and have now sent that there closing sentence to georgetown, notre dame, texas, washington university, and duke. ouch.
is this fairly common, stupid little mistakes like this, or is this reeeeally really bad? should i just give up hope on those schools to which i've already applied? i'm so damn ditzy.. meh.

cornell, anyone? mum called me about their snail she received yesterday.. said they "invited me to apply" or whatever, but nothing specific about a fee waiver. has anyone tried applying and gotten hidden waivers to cornell?

Fordham, anyone? I hadn't heard much about it, but I didn't know if I should wait a little while longer before submitting my app... just in hopes of saving, oh, $70..

Its almost enough to make you root for Auburn
Hey now, GeneralYankee... talk like that certainly won't make a Bama fee waiver appear for you! Plus, who told you the weather is great? Well, I mean, if you consider 100º, 50% humidity great, then, well, you'll love it. But yeah, I love how Alabama included a $20 iTunes gift certificate thing (which is $8 net after that LSDAS report.. of course). That's so Alabama, sigh. "Sign up for this class and you'll be entered to win a FREE IPOD NANO! WOWZA!"
....Can you sense my slight bitterness towards my alma mater?

So I just sent my UT Austin app in, and, as usual, there was no little yellow box for a signature.. As I was checking out, LSAC asked me to click some button that said I authorize them to send it, etc. etc. Is that the same as an electronic signature?

ugh, pastries are delicious, and french boys are.. sometimes willing to pay for them? and you know, they're slightly pretty, until you get to know them.
anyway, thanks everyone, that makes a lot of sense..

OK, so, this is the third time I have asked this, and I hope to get a reply this time, hah. I'm studying abroad in Paris, and trying to simultaneously submit my law school apps (Future word of advice: don't do it. Everyday it's like.. Do I want to go eat pastries with French boys or write about overcoming obstacles in my life, blah blah blah? Hmmmm.. toughie). Michigan had an additional doc that was basically the rights waiver to the letters of recommendation. LSDAS says you must print and send in all additional docs, but the Michigan thing said you could find the rights waiver on LSAC.org. However.. I have searched and searched, and come up with nothing. Someone pleeeeeeease help meeeee. I really, really don't want to go spend 5€ at an internet café when I could do it for free online!

does anyone know the likelihood of acceptance if you're given a fee waiver? i know a friend of mine got the michigan FW last year, but got flat-out rejected. please don't reject meeeee, michigan!
