Law School Admissions / Texas Admissions Packet
« on: April 09, 2007, 06:23:38 PM »
So I got the UT letter on saturday, but it was just the letter and an intent form.  Do they send any other materials later, such as a viewbook or something?  I would think they would send something that says "hey look at us, you should come here cause we're awesome"

I have no idea why I participated, maybe I just felt bad for the poor guy that had to keep calling people.

But I kinda want that 35 minutes of my life back now

My very first ding.  A little disappointing, but I can't say I didn't expect it

Law School Admissions / What more should/could I do?
« on: March 28, 2007, 07:15:51 AM »
I got waitlisted at Michigan today via email...

I wrote 3 of the additional essays, including "Why Michigan" and have submitted 4 LORs.

What the hell else could I possibly send to give them the message that I really want to go there?

Financial Aid / Interesting Cornell Aid Clause?
« on: March 26, 2007, 07:57:03 AM »
I was looking over my award letter from Cornell, and I noticed the following line:

"Please note that scholarship awards are given with the understanding that there is a moral obligation to repay the Law School is future financial circumstances permit repayment."

Is this the standard notification that if your situation improves during school you will have to give part of the money back, or a "you better donate at least that much when you're making a lot of money."


General Off-Topic Board / Board censorship
« on: March 20, 2007, 10:36:13 PM »
Personally, the censorship provides for much more entertainment...I find myself calling people "feminine hygeine products" at times, and they give me the "wtf" face.


Law School Admissions / GULC statuschecker has ceased to update
« on: March 19, 2007, 04:06:34 PM »

Anyone else have the last update on Mar 15?

I'm still waiting on a whole bunch of schools, but I do need to start thinking about my current options so I can start eliminating choices.  I'm also waiting on monetary packages, but chances are they aren't going to play a HUGE role.

Out of my acceptances thusfar, it's GWU vs. USC vs. Cornell

Location-wise, after graduation I would like to end up in either Chicago, DC, or possibly LA...I know, that's not helping - although I would like to keep the opportunity to come back to Chicago open at all times.  I plan on going to BigLaw for a number of years, but then hope to go to the USAO.  I would obcviously also like the opportunity to obtain a clerkship before launching into my career.

I love both DC and LA, so location-wise either of those would be fine for me, however I'm unsure about going to Ithaca - even though I was thoroughly impressed with the law school when I visited.

Would I be a fool to turn down Cornell for either of the other schools?

Again, I know I've got a long way till I can actually make this decision, but I feel like I need to start thinking, wseeing as seat deposits are not too far off at all.


General Off-Topic Board / Finance book recommendations?
« on: March 15, 2007, 12:38:44 AM »
So this will probably sound pretty nerdy, but:

I've always been rather interested in finance and related topics, but I haven't been able to take any UG finance courses due to the restriction to business school students.  I'm gonna have some free time and I was wondering if anyone had a recommendation for a good book/textbook on the basics of finance (or even on certain subtopics in finance) that I could read and more or less learn at least the basics by myself

Law School Admissions / More amusing T4 email!
« on: March 14, 2007, 01:26:33 PM »
Wow, the 4th Tier schools are really getting a bit brazen with their emails.  This one didn't even ask me to consider applying! I really have no idea what the purpose even was...

Campbell Team Wins National Moot Court Competition

Students from Campbell University School of Law won the 2007 William E. McGee National Civil Rights Moot Court Competition held at the University of Minnesota Law School. The team of Jamie Gentry, Stephanie Evans, and Jennifer Kerrigan finished first in the country and also won the Best Brief award. All are second-year law students at Campbell.

The National Civil Rights Moot Court Competition is one of the nationís oldest and most prestigious appellate advocacy competitions. Forty teams from law schools across the country participated in this yearís competition held in Minneapolis on March 1-3, including teams from the University of Michigan, Georgetown, Washington University in St. Louis, Notre Dame, the University of North Carolina, the University of Washington, the University of Wisconsin, Brigham Young University, and Ohio State University.

 The Campbell students won every argument. They prevailed over teams from Washington University, Georgetown University, and the University of Washington in the preliminary rounds. They then defeated teams from the University of Cincinnati, Ohio State University, the University of Wisconsin, and Washington University in the single-elimination rounds to win the national championship.

Campbell students once again have proven that they are among the best in the nation.

I, for one, now regret not applying.  Campbell, you win - again.
