Where should I go next fall? / Re: Choices, choices....

Looks to me like GULC is going to be your best bet unless you absolutely love NU and the atmosphere/culture in Chicago.

Wait List / WL at Pittsburgh
« on: March 20, 2006, 11:22:45 AM »
Waitlisted at Pittsburgh this morning.  Is it normal to receive a wait list letter via e-mail?  Either way, that adds one more to the wait list stack.  I am now at 5 and counting...

Check with GULC about transferring between divisions.  From what I have seen at most schools, its not terribly difficult to transfer from PT to FT after your 1L year.  This would also assure you that you can be at GULC.  If Georgetown really is your dream school, I would go this route.

I was notified via snail mail as well.  Thin white envelope with a letter and green waitlist response form inside.

Thanks for the information.  Two weeks isn't too bad of a prospect for me since our Spring Break is next week so I won't be around for mail/e-mail anyway.  Good luck!

im confused, it still says 2003 data. am i at the wrong place?

Go to chiashu.com and then click on "law schools."

Then you need to create an account.  After that click on "schools" and then go to "edit my schools."  After that when you click on "view my schools" it will give you your percentages based on the data from different years.

Otherwise, why would it have a status of "and is being reviewed" before?

That's exactly what I thought.  So hopefully we'll be getting decisions by the beginning of April.

My application just changed to "in review" this morning as well. Prior to that it said "your file is complete and is being reviewed."  so I am hoping that the actual "in review" process doesn't take more than a week or so, but who knows.

Interesting, I've never heard anyone say anything good about Urbana-Champaign.  But I am surprised to see how much love Iowa City gets.

I have only been to three Big Ten campuses, so take what I am about to say with a grain of salt. 

I have been to Champaign-Urbana (obviously), Iowa City, and West Layayette.  In terms of these three I would group CU and IC together with WL way down below.  Personally, I thought Iowa's campus was very but that everything (especially the football stadium) was a little too spread out compared to the campus at Illinois.  The actual campus at Illinois is beautiful and has pretty much everything you'd need, it's the area outside of campus that is lacking.

The new percentages seem to be much more accurate than the ones I was using before.  Some of the chances have dropped off dramatically since the 2003 numbers that are readily avaialbe when you simply type "chiashu" into google. 

The drastic drops seem to be appropriate, however, as the schools for which my admission percentages dropped by a lot (>20%) are the ones with 2003 chiashu percentages that didn't nearly match up with what the previous year's LSN numbers were telling me.  On the other hand, schools where the 2003 chiashu data seemed to fit the LSN numbers, the 2005 chiashu is approximately the same as the 2003.

chiashu, great work and please continue the service.  It has been an invaluable tool to me.
