Wait List / Re: American Waitlist Thread
« on: May 07, 2007, 02:21:08 AM »
When I was visiting a couple of weeks ago, Brooke said that when they start looking to take people off the waitlist, especially once it starts to get later in the summer, they are looking for people they know will accept the offer. That is to say, the more in touch you stay with the admissions office, and if you are contacting them every couple of weeks or so to give an update or express your continued interest. Also, she said that if you are really wanting to get off the WL, and you have a way to get yourself to DC even at the last minute, you should tell them that. If a chance spot opens up, they will call you first because they know you will be able to make it.

Also, she said that they couldnt say for sure when they would go to the WL, but that they would. And that it could start as soon as "in two weeks," which would be this week.

Maybe none of this is new or helpful, but now that I've typed it, I'm clicking post. haha.


very helpful...thanks so much! I've seen you post a lot about American and the information has always been great. Are you definitely going to American?

Thanks, I'm glad someone's benefitting from my typings! I keep making all sorts of plans as if I've decided to really go there (housing deposit, seat deposit, plans to move, telling my friends to come visit... lol), so my heart is definitely in it, even if my brain is lacking behind a little. I'm like 99% sure :)

I don't know if you've seen these, but here are the pictures I took while visiting:

Bean is right on the money.

That said, you can still get into law school even with an academic suspension, especially with the explanation that you have. Write a good, succint addendum. You will be fine. But as Bean said, by all means, if you can get it fixed now -- do it! Even if it's not fixed by the time you're applying for law school, you can at least mention in your addendum that you are "in the process of having it corrected."

Depressed about my Rockets.  Attended Mormon wedding earlier, so naturally it was over by 8 with everyone still sober.  Plus have to be up at 7.   :(

I was sad about the Rocket's loss as well (did I miss something, are you from Htown?). I would, however, be more depressed about that wedding ;)

To answer the question --

There is no more effective procrastination tool than LSD.

The rough sex one is good. But rough masturbation would really get the wheels spinning.

Hahahaha... 175. I say go with that one.

I feel your pain, although not literally because at least I didn't break my arm!  I'm telling you though, its pretty embarassing to show up at school with a sling and have to explain to people that you tripped over your own feet! 

You are about to embark on a career as a liar. I mean, Lawyer. It's time to make up a better story. :)

Cady -- omg!

Wait List / Re: Notre Dame Provisional List - Fall 2007
« on: May 04, 2007, 06:08:43 PM »
I got the email. If all I do is fill out the form saying I want to stay on the waitlist, am I basically condeming myself to not get taken off? (In other words, no LOCI, no new LOR, no updated resume...) I guess at the very least I should sent a LOCI.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Taking the Same LSAT more than once
« on: May 04, 2007, 06:06:27 PM »
Technically, you should be doing all your tests twice. Once when you take the test, and the second time when you review your answers in order to find out why the right answer was the right one, and the wrong one the wrong one. With the games, if you don't manage to figure out how to do it when you are taking the test, then when you review you should work on the set up and the questions until you get it.

I don't see any purpose in taking a test again after you've analyzed all of it. You have way better things to be doing with your time. Like working on new games! In mastering a particular game, it's not the mastery of that game that matters but the mastery of the particular type of thinking that will help you solve similar games.

You can do it!!

Would you be sharing a bed room, or just common living areas?
