Law School Admissions / Re: Cornell Decision Waiting Room

Did you happen to get a sense of what a "few" means? Understandable if you didn't, but I hope it doesn't mean like, literally three or four.

This is most unfortunate.

I didn't get a sense of what she meant by a few, but I did get a sense that there was quite a number of people being deferred again.

Called them again.  Put on a reserve.  The lady I talked to told me that a decision will be made in late May - early June. I asked her if this was a wait-list, but she said that it's a reserve or a deferral.  She said most of us are gonna be rejected, a few accepted and some put on WL.

Wow, The Cheese gets up earlier than I do... good luck today all, hopefully this April the 15th will bring good tidings... I for one am not convinced that the status checker switch means a waitlist until somebody actually gets waitlisted, so I am holding out hope for all of us.  Good luck!

I hope we are all in also, but when Cornell keeps us on hold for almost 4 months, not much hope remains.

Sorry, looks like someone beat me to it...

Ilovecheese, did you go to "EA complete" as well?

It looks like people with expected WL numbers as well as some with admit range numbers are getting this switch. Man, I just need some closure from this school. If they had any idea what they've been doing to me...

Yeh, I got a switch.

So, pretty much everyone who was deferred in December and just had his or her status checker change to "EA Complete" is wait-listed?

Is anyone else here still waiting for a decision? Reg or EA deferral? Best of luck to everyone.

Yeh, I was deferred in December, and nada since then.

Any news on the Cornell front?  Their deposit deadline is on the 15th.  Hopefully, they will respond to us all by that time.

Self Selected stands for the fact that schools do not require on to disclose his or her ethnicity, so it's  personal choice.  Under Represented Minorities are those of African descent, Native Americans, Latinos, and some Asian groups(Pacific Islanders are considered to be URM's). 

Although, a person might be a minority, that doesn't mean he or she will get a boost with admissions.

Could a BU student comment on environmental law offerings at BU? I checked BU's site and I see only 2 courses offered in the field.

Choosing the Right Law School / BU's v. BC's employment.
« on: April 08, 2008, 12:31:20 PM »
Just got back from B&N and saw the new law school rankings.  What puzzled me was BU's and BC's employment upon graduation.  BU's employment was above 90%, while BC's was at 82%. Now, both schools have very similar PI percentiles and other jobs that employ you once you pass the bar, so I find it very difficult to believe that BC lags so far behind BU in employment upon graduation. 

There is also a very interesting matter of "unknowns" - those whose employment status is unknown; BU's "unknown's" are at 12%, while BC's are at 0%.  Can it be hat these "unknown's" are responsible for BU"s higher employment percentiles?
 
If anyone has got any more info or insight into this, please tell me. I'm visiting BU this week, and will attend either school unless my WL's or Cornell comes through, and these employment numbers are making the job of picking a school very difficult.
