Law School Applications / Re: Call from Harvard
« on: March 29, 2006, 04:20:15 PM »
so there have only been two, three acceptances? 

3 here, 1 on lsn (tmunoz) which seems to be a different person from the others, correct me if I'm wrong.

of course not everyone's online all day, so who knows.

congrats everybody who heard back today!

congrats mike on getting accepted to things you didnt apply to.

maybe that trend will continue and ill get accepted to Stanford or Duke.

in other news, I am now King of Waitlists. KING!

Columbia. Penn. Michigan. And a hold from Harvard.

I dont mind going to Cornell- I dont, its gon be great. But it will hurt with all these other ones up in the air.

And my alma mater's law buildings stare at me, literally from across the street, in silence.

ugh that sucks about Penn, I've been rooting for your app to come through positively.

The 23rd. And yeah, maybe it'll be end of this week?

Would you all agree that this income/class discussion is all relative? If you live in New York and Westchester County and most of Connecticut, or Potomac, MD, or some Philly suburbs, or....the OC or something, forgive my lack of west coast knowledge, $100,000/yr isn't going to make you rich. There are people 2 miles away whose salaries are $1 million plus, or who simply have tons of money stashed away.

But you're not exactly poor either. Need-based financial aid is meant to even the playing field, and I think it's an imperfect, but necessary measure, that inevitably starts from the bottom up. I'm in a different but equally confounding situation where some schools are being very generous and some are giving me a big fat zero.

I'm going into it with the mindset that they'll help people with the least, first. And I don't have much in the bank, but I'm pretty sure some people are even worse off and need the help even more. (and it's very very touchy to blame people for their financial status ie the car leases etc. I think most schools do a pretty good job gauging that via asking about your current debt, all the things you own including houses and cars, and your income) that lease is going to show up somewhere in all of that, and I think they make it difficult to hide on purpose.

All in all--I say need-based financial aid is a good thing, but it is definitely fallible.

I just had the call. I think it went pretty well.  He said the exact same thing.  He wants to put a voice to the application before it goes to final review.  He was definitely rushed in the sense that he kept it about 5-7 minutes.  But I think it went pretty well.  Now the waiting game begins...how long should we expect?

I am wondering if any of the folks that have had calls this week were originally placed "on hold" or if they are still going through first-reads.  Can anyone help with this?

This email/call was the first I'd heard. Although the last of my application was sent by LSAC back in December, I went complete in the last month.

Had my call just a minute after posting. He said that they like to "put voices with the names before the application goes to final review". Just asked about my work experience and a couple of extracurriculars and then i asked a few questions.

Hopefully it went well, I never know with these things. I'm just going to pretend I didn't do it until I hear back cause now there's nothing I can do. (eep!)

I got the email yesterday as well. Completely unexpected--and now I'm a bit nervous! Yesterday it was definitely more than a little bit, but I've calmed down since then.

Now to go back and read some of this thread...
