Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Yale or Harvard? Harvard or Yale?
« on: March 19, 2006, 07:10:58 AM »

Ha ha Lacoste.  I've edited to make the statement more true.
you could say that HLSers are:

Socially inept hacks (who feel the need to remind everyone that they went to school...where?  oh in Cambridge) with no practical skills (having spent both semesters clinging to blackletter (i.e. Property and Me/Crim and my interests) classes instead of having the opportunity to get involved in clinics right away) that spend their days getting robbed by/raped by locals and get the opportunity to interact with the fun folks over at MIT--ooh lets design a race track in the hallways ( :D no offense to any MIT-ers).  

Hey now, don't knock my race track!  I built it between Star Trek episodes!

The most recent Chiashu data gave me 11.8% at Harvard, but I still got in.  Pretty miraculous, or just pretty stupid on Harvard's part...

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: UVA Dean's Scholars ...

16K for me, even though I didn't ask for any money (and wasn't named a Dean's Scholar originally).

Reviving this thread just to celebrate my rejection (complete 1/30, rejected 3/13). 

The idea of living in California for three years was kind of nice, but do I really care?  Hell no!  :D

I mis-spoke- they might win the odd election every once in awhile, but for the long term I would expect mostly Republican Presidents and Congresses.  Even during the long period of Democratic dominance in Congress in the middle of the last century, the Republicans did get control of one house of Congress once or twice.

And even if they don't win any elections, they'll still be around, whining about this and that.

Political science- I can't see how it would have helped, because tons of poli. sci people apply to law schools. 

What might have helped, though, is that I took a whole lot of science classes as well, for school and pre-med requirements (yes, I was a pre-med, once...)

Question: Why can't the dems win these states?
 

possible reasons:

1. pro-choice voters don't vote on the one issue of abortion, while strongly pro-life voters might. 
2. the dems are seen as soft on national security- they will not win an election for a generation if this doesn't change, no matter what their position on abortion is.

Cheapest way to get between Boston and NYC is the greyhound, which is usually around $40 roundtrip. As far as I know, Harvard will help with travel provided that you've submitted financial aid and qualify for some sort of help.

Chinatown buses are like $15 one way, I thought.

The Chinatown buses had some "incidents" last summer- they caught fire while driving on the Mass. turnpike!

I'd probably shell out the extra $$ for Greyhound.

I'll most likely make the 10-minute trek from my dorm room. Depending on the weather.

Yeah, I'll be there too- my dorm's about half an hour's walk away.

Law School Admissions / Re: If You Applied After Decmeber Post Here!
« on: March 16, 2006, 09:34:01 PM »
I didn't even decide to apply to schools this cycle until November; crammed for the December LSAT, then applied as soon as I got the score.  Sent my applications in January 11th, and I'm waiting on four decisions.  So I guess I can't complain at all. 


i did the exact same thing!  sent out 10 apps in december, and another 20 in january after i saw how bad my lsat was.

accepted at 4, waitlisted at 3, rejected at 9, pending at 14

Thirty applications?!  And I thought I spent a lot of money in fees...
