Choosing the Right Law School / Re: New Posters - Odds of getting in
« on: June 29, 2005, 05:04:42 PM »
Sometimes those posts annoy me, and so on those days I don't read them.  But I definatly started out asking the same questions.  All of the responses to those questions should be taken with a grain of salt though.  Some people told me that I'd be crazy to even apply to BC, some people really encouraged me, and thats where I'm going.  The only ones that really make me angry are the "I have a 4.0 and a 178, will I get in anywhere?"  Give me a break with that one!

General Off-Topic Board / Re: Best College Prank?

The best prank that happened while I was at college wasn't done by me, but it was hilarious.  I went to a catholic school, and we had a campus-wide movie channel run by student government.  During spring finals, at around midnight, when just about the whole campus was watching instead of studing, (something good was on, like the godfather or something), it all of a sudden switched to super hard-core porn, and was on for a good hour before someone changed it.  people were running through the halls in the dorms screaming to put on the movie channel.  I don't think the kids who did it ever got caught either.

I just graduated from Nova, and believe me, by the end of the last season the bandwagon was overflowing and it was pretty hard to get tickets.  They do a lottery system for student tickets to every game (which are free).  You get points based on winning/losing the last lottery (more points if you lost) and your attendance at games (if you go and get your wildcard swiped, you get extra points).  Non-student tickets are just about impossible, since the whole rest of the pavilion is season tickets.  If you start going to the games early in the season that the hard-core fans don't go to, you'll get more points for the lottery and have a better chance of getting tickets to the good games.  And the big Big East matchups (UConn, 'Cuse...) are at Wachovia and easy to get tickets to.  Just cheer extra hard for me, I'm so mad that I'm not going to be there this season!

I have a master lock brand that I used all through undergrad that worked well.  I think I got it at staples

Anyone else really stoked about Villanova hoops next year? Im going to try and make it to as many games as I can. How hard is it to get tickets?

Its definatly not easy to get tickets.  The majority of the Pavillion (which is small) is sold to season ticket holders, leaving one bleacher of student section.  At the begining of this last season, it was easy to get tickets to any game, but by the end the bandwagon was full, and it was really hard.  They distribute tickets to undergrads using a lottery system, I'm not sure how grad students are factored in.  If we're as good as they say we're going to be, don't expect to be able to get to any game you want. 

William and Mary's waitlist letter made me want to vomit.  Basically saying that VERY few people turn down acceptance, and if a few people are stupid enough to do so, I have a very slim chance of getting a seat, but should by some miracle that happen, I should have my bags packed and waiting by the door to jump at the chance.  Eat me, I hated the school anyway

I'm pretty sure I'm going to live at home next year, but if I end up wanting to kill my parents one month in, I'm going to move in with my boyfriend, who is also a student, so he'll understand everything.  I just think the amount of money I'll save, and the fact that I'll be able to eat good meals, is totally worth it

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: BC over BU, or vice versa
« on: March 30, 2005, 05:21:51 AM »
I choose BC over BU, mainly because BU rejected me.  But even if I had gotten into both, I think I would have chosen BC, because it has better placement in Boston, which is where I want to stay, and I just like the feel and atmosphere of the school better.

Did anyone else find their waitlist letter smug and annoying, or was that just me?
