Law School Admissions / Re: American U. acceptance email
« on: April 28, 2004, 05:19:24 PM »
Anyone hear from American U. recently (i.e. -- the last two weeks)? They just changed the letter on their website to the following:

"April 27, 2004

Dear Prospective Student:

We are nearing the end of the admissions process for Fall 2004. By the end of this month, all completed files should be ready for committee review. Any applicants missing information will be contacted by their admissions counselor, most likely via email. These applicants will be given a deadline of May 7th to complete their files and if they do not meet that deadline, they will not be reviewed for admission.

The seat deposit deadline for the majority of our accepted applicants was April 15th. At present, we have sufficient deposits for our full-time program. During the next few months, we anticipate that some of those who have submitted a deposit may make other plans. In that event, we may need to admit from the waiting list for the full-time program.

During the first week in May, accepted applicants who submitted a deposit will receive an email invitation to join the AU/WCL Incoming Students List serv. This listserv will be the primary means of communication between the admissions office and our incoming class. This will also be a way for students to communicate with their classmates before school begins in August. Copies of all material mailed during the summer will be posted in file format to the listserv web site.

I like them both. LSC gives some nice study tips, and a great overview of the whole experience. PLS is more about how to prepare before you begin ...

Is it a Swingline? That movie (and my job being oddly similar) are inspiration as well.

Yep.  I have the Milton stapler.  Well, not the actual one from the movie, but yes, a red Swingline.  ;)

I'm willing to buy into the illusion ...

That exchange about the truth is ironic coming from the mainstream media, though. 

So, I can top any apparent stupidity on this thread.

What originally inspired me to go to LS? The movie A Few Good Men. That's right. The whole scene at the end between Tom and Jack just gives me shivers. I must've watched the movie a couple hundred times -- starting when I was in my early teens. So, anytime I start to feel like this isn't where I am supposed to be, I'll just take a break and watch the movie.

D.C. and CNN also are motivating forces for me.

The journal idea is a good one, I'm just terrible about keeping up with that stuff.

Oh, and I forgot about the series "The West Wing". Yeah, that gives me goosebumps as well (at least when Aaron Sorkin is the writer/producer).

Depends on the school. Where you get more flexibility with numbers, you make up for in experience. If you are doing it just to get into a school you wouldn't qualify for ordinarily, and you don't have the experience to back it up, you are generally in for a tough battle.

But this is a generalization, and I am sure there are schools out there where it is much easier to get into the PT program.

Well, it could be good news, for those who want to go into academia. That's a huge amount of new jobs that would be added in the field, in comparison to what that job market is like right now.

I've heard from a bunch of students at UVa that the book "One L", written by a Harvard grad, is a great picture of what it is really like to be in law school.
