Glad to hear everyone enjoyed the weekend as much as I did. I think there are lots of good reasons to take Notre Dame over some higher ranked schools. Their placement is still national, and the atmosphere is very different from most law schools.

Talula: I think we sat together at lunch, if you're who I'm thinking of. Brokeback Mountain fan? I was the lone Canadian there, if that makes it easier to remember me.

Mccapj2: Since we seem to have bumped into each other all weekend, I guess it only makes sense that we meet online too. Glad to hear you enjoyed the weekend, the hockey game was pretty fun. Looks like there's a good chance we may both be at ND in the fall.

I had a feeling there were some people at the weekend who posted on LSD, but I didn't want to be the one to bring it up, in case everyone had no idea what I was talking about and just thought I was crazy. :)

Anyway, I thought the weekend was great, and it's going to be a tough decision. Good luck to everyone else, I'm sure you all have equally difficult decisions to make.

I came away really impressed too. Going into the weekend, I had thought I would probably take Georgetown over Notre Dame, but this weekend really gave me something to think about. Considering the generous fellowship they're offering, and how much I liked the campus and students, this definitely seems like a much tougher decision now.

I thought the students we met this weekend were all impressive, I've never seen so many people who all loved their school as much as these students did. The campus itself was amazing too, everything was really spaced out nicely, with lots of green space. Coming from a campus in the middle of a big city, for me this was really different. Overall, I'd say the weekend was very worthwhile, and definitely raised the probability that I'll end up at ND.

Congrats to all the new acceptances!

I'll be at the Feb. 24 Welcome Day as well, I'm looking forward to hopefully meeting some of you, it sounds like it should be a good day. Anyone else planning to be there?

Dinged at Columbia today, letter was dated Jan. 30. I can't say it's a huge surprise, but still a little disappointing to get that first rejection (although I'm sure it won't be the last ;) ). I figured even if they took my highest LSAT I was still a bit of a longshot. Oh well, I'm happy with the options I have right now, so it's not the end of the world. Good luck to everyone else.

Queencruella, I also got $$ from ND, and I didn't have outstanding numbers either. I had a 3.72 and LSAT average of 165 (172 and 157). I'm pretty sure soft factors played no role at all, since I have virtually no extracurricular activities worth mentioning. Good luck with ND, and I wouldn't say you're out of the running for $$ from them.

I got in at Georgetown with a 172 and 157, and a 3.72 GPA. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that other schools will look favorably on the better score, but I'm not too optimistic about my chances.

I'm starting to wonder if my admit package got lost in the mail. I got the acceptance e-mail December 22nd, but still haven't recieved anything yet. Even considering it has to come all the way up here to Canada, I still wouldn't expect it to take this long, this is approaching 3 weeks. Anyone else still waiting for their acceptance stuff?

I hope you don't mind me asking, but why did you apply to Arkansas? It seems out of place with your other apps. Just curious! Congrats on your GTown acceptance.

Thanks, congrats on Northwestern for you. As far as Arkansas goes, I applied because it was free, and it gave me a chance to test out submitting my applications on the LSAC website. I figured it was better to make a mistake submitting an application to Arkansas than to make that mistake submitting my Harvard application.

Hmmmm...well now that is promising.  Would you mind if I ask for the GPA, CBGB?

Sure, it's all in my LSN profile anyway. I have a 3.72, and am applying straight out of undergrad. I'm coming from a Canadian school, and so I would be considered an international student, but I'm not really sure if that makes any real difference.

I have a 15 point LSAT split (157/172), and got into Georgetown a few weeks ago, so I think they do look at the higher score, like their website says. I had also included an addendum, if that makes a difference.
