Wow. Congratulations. I agree with John Galt. :P

May I ask from where you are transferring?

Good stuff, Geoff. :) Did you ever get anything before the snail mail letter, like an update regarding being complete, etc.?

Did anyone apply to Florida International University, when, and have you heard anything yet?

Many thanks for any feedback!

Denials / Re: Florida State University

Big Rig - I'd rather not disclose my LSAT (yeah, real helpful, right? Let's just say it's lower than yours is) but my GPA is a 3.76 (willing to disclose that :P). Classic splitter. I went complete about late January as well. No news is good news thus far, I guess. But I haven't heard a thing from anyone about an FSU decision around our timetable, so they're taking a while for sure.

US - Best of luck with UF! They outright dinged me! :) So it's great that you're at least still under consideration. Given that, I'm surprised FSU didn't admit you. The application process is mad weird, isn't it.

Anyone hear anything from FSU?

I'm asking on the Denials thread because I've been dinged so much so far, I feel it's where I belong.

Personal Statement / Writing a "Why [school]" statement
« on: March 02, 2006, 10:13:09 PM »
Hi everyone.

I've been deferred at one school and am writing a "Why [school]" essay.

Does anyone have any tips in regards to what should be mentioned that doesn't sound like a laundry list of things that are good about the school? What I mean is, should I mention a particular course of study that I am interested in, something else of that nature, etc.?

Basically, if any of ya'll have written these, please share your approach to it.

Any help is greatly appreciated! Best of luck to all!

Law School Applications / Re: Apology from Boalt

I received that e-mail!

I got an e-mail inviting me to the "newly admitted students of color" reception. I hadn't gotten any other e-mails before regarding admittance, and this e-mail congratulated me "once again" on my acceptance (but I hadn't gotten a phone call). I'm in Florida and I got this sometime around 9:00 p.m. I later received the retraction e-mail and then another which said the e-mail glitch was due to an error that happened during software training.

Yow.  ???
