Name the song that, when you here it a few years from now, will take you back to this time in your life. 

For me it's Robin Thicke - Wanna love U girl.  It's a classic club song, great beat, corny but catchy lyrics like...
She's the type of girl you wanna marry/Scientists say that she's a second sunshine/Since we've met my life's been sweeter than berries/I guess if we have sex our love will turn to wine.  You can watch the video here (the one on the left, not the one on the right)

Anyway, name the song that marks 2005-06 application cycle for you.

Law School Admissions / Difficulty focusing on school
« on: February 07, 2006, 07:44:31 PM »
For those who are finishing up their UG this semester are you finding it had to concentrate.  I know I am, the combination of distraction by waiting for decisions and lack of incentive to concentrate are making it really difficult to care about schoolwork.  I keep trying to tell myself that my final grades may get me off some waitlists or that I need to keep the momentum going for next year but it's just not working.  Anyone else in the same boat?

Law School Admissions / Mid-January Applicants

If you applied mid-January what stage are you applications at (received, complete, decision).  I applied mid-January (Jan. 13th) and about half of my aplications are complete, no decisions yet. 

Black Law Students / Fee waiver/acceptance ratio
« on: February 01, 2006, 06:33:42 AM »
What is the fee waiver to acceptance ratio for everyone here? The only information I have found is that U of M accepts 55% of fee waiver candidates, is this high or low?

I got fee waivers from 4-10 (save Virginia for some reason) with NW offering to fly me in to tour the campus and meet with some of the BLSA and letters of encouragement from Harvard and Stanford.  Strangely, in the 10-30 range I only got e-mail encouragements from U of T and Minnesota.  Does this mean they think I'm too good for them (I don't think I am)?  Do the fee waivers mean they really want me (based on my numbers) or are they just giving fee waivers to URM's with half way decent numbers, hoping they will have incredible soft factors?
