Law School Admissions / Re: Cornell Dean's Letter
« on: October 30, 2008, 12:14:26 PM »
pick up the phone and dial 1-(607) 255-5141. When someone answers, say "Hi, I mailed my dean certification 2 weeks ago and I still do not see it reflected on my app status. Could you please tell me if your admissions office received it yet? Thank you."

then depending on their response, take the appropriate course of action.

what exactly is "very likely to get a full scholarship"?

and if you don't? don't gamble with your life.

inconvenience will not deter me from bidding for a spot at UCLA. Ever.

I'm a fiscal conservative.  I believe that less government is better government.  I also believe that social issues should be determined on the state level regardless of my personal biases.

What exactly are "social issues"?  Who gets to join which country club?

"Sneakers with lights in the heels" and "feminists with hyphenated names"

Another thing, being Asian doesn't qualify you for URM, so that's not a card you have in your repertoire.

Technically, Asians are still URM, just not as "URM" as the black guy.

i can has a 175?!?!? pweeez?

yeah I did this at 2AM and wasn't thinking coherently. Thanks everyone.

It's a fine recommendation. But I urge you to delete this immediately as you were supposed to waive rights to know the content of your LOR. Adcoms do surf these boards regularly and this will not go well. They have a memory of an elephant and will remember this for years to come.

Law School Admissions / Re: UMich's Summer Start Program
« on: October 30, 2008, 12:12:45 AM »
Hey, so I'm pretty late on this one - I was wondering if anyone could share some details about the summer start option at Michigan. I am going to be graduating in December, and working through May, and I was thinking this might be a really nice option to get acclimated to law school before my first semester.

- Is the program super-competitive to get into? How do they decide who to admit to the program?
- Do you think I have a good shot with my stats? 4.03 GPA (2 W's though) / 172 LSAT (decent soft, decent LORs - I hope)
- Any other impressions of Mich would be equally awesome, never really considered it until the last few days, looks like a great school...


Your GPA/LSAT stats combined with size of avatar pretty much guarantees admission to UM. I wouldn't worry about it if I were you.

Law School Admissions / Re: Will I be able to get loans?

Assuming i'm taking out 50k/yr am I going to be able to get those loans in this economy if I don't have much credit and my parents don't make much? I mean, I'll get it some way right?

Yes. Loans for graduate schools are much more accessible than say, for a new BMW. You'll be fine mate. Just get into good schools.
