Law School Applications / Re: Georgetown Dean's Scholarship

My app due date was the same, but I never received that 2/16 email. I sent in my app (I still have the email record in my sent mail folder) on 2/1, so I was in on time as well. Odd. Hopefully I'm still in the running, I guess...

How do you know about the 50 finalists? I applied for it, haven't been rejected yet - I suppose that's good news. I just haven't heard anything further about the details of the process.

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: Boalt grading

I guess I'm curious what people really think about this, because it seems to me like Boalt's grading system isn't really all that far off from a standard grading system. 10% get HH (A), 30% get H (B), the rest get P (C). The possibility for failure is there too.

Seems like a fine system to me, maybe a little less stressful for some, but I'm not convinced it's all that different than standard grading. After getting accepted to Boalt I'm very interested, but I'm not sure the grading system is a big selling point for me.

I also learned on MB in elementary school - I haven't really done anything since, other than type papers and the like, but it's never been an obstacle, I've always been able to type exceedingly fast. It's a pretty useful skill, especially when you have long papers to write and a lot of BS to plant on those pages.

Berkeley may be in California, but it's not exactly the warmest place you'll find either. Foggiest, perhaps.

I think every law school on the west coast gets dogged because of the difference in population and perceived prestige. I doubt Willamette or Gonzaga are any worse as schools than some of the middle-ranked schools in the Northeast. But, that being said, Willamette is extremely expensive for what it gives you - I think I'd rather go to Lewis and Clark or UO if I were going to go to law school in Oregon.

I got a little bit of info, and some scholarship application info as well.

It rains less in Seattle than it does in the major population areas in Oregon.

Law School Applications / Re: triple majoring.

Coming from someone with a hard major and a good GPA, I wish they would take that more into account - I am finishing a minor in political science, and political science is a bit of a joke. Is it interesting stuff? Yes. But it's a damn cakewalk. GPA's in electrical engineering =/= GPA's in political science or other liberal arts.

I basically feel the same way - I applied to 7 schools, those being Stanford, Boalt, Columbia, NYU, Michigan, GULC and University of Washington. I applied to all on the same date (Nov. 17th I think) and was accepted in early December by Boalt, then a little later by GULC and NYU. A month later, I still haven't heard from Stanford, Columbia or Michigan, which is fine, but I'm curious about why I haven't heard from UW. I'm from the northwest damnit, give me some love!
