Law School Admissions / Spring Break
« on: March 14, 2007, 11:09:31 AM »
= I can't check my mail for over a week.  This is gonna hurt.  Maybe I'll drive down to school in the middle just to pick up the's only a 2 hour drive, thought it is extremely pathetic that I'm actually considering that

...piss me off.  For example: Beyonce - Irreplaceable.

you just can't rhyme "minute" with "minute"

Law School Admissions / USC Invitation? Am I in?
« on: March 03, 2007, 02:37:15 PM »
So in today's mail I got an invitation to a USC Law School reception for alumni and newly admitted students.  I haven't gotten an acceptance letter though.

Seeing as how I don't recall being an alum, should I take that as an acceptance?

Anyone else get this?

Law School Admissions / In preparation for a UVA ding:

Dear University of Virginia School of Law,

Thank you for your letter rejecting my application for admission to your JD class of 2010.

I have received rejections from an unusually large number of well qualified schools. With such a varied and promising spectrum of rejections from which to select, it is impossible for me to consider them all. After careful deliberation, then, and because a number of schools have found me more unsuitable, I regret to inform you that I am unable to accept your rejection.

Despite your school’s outstanding qualifications and previous experience in rejecting applicants, I find that your rejection does not meet with my requirements at this time. As a result, I will begin attendance at your school on the twentieth of August.

Circumstances change and one can never know when new demands for rejection arise. Accordingly, I will keep your letter on file in case my requirements for rejection change.

Please do not regard this letter as a criticism of your qualifications in attempting to refuse me admission. I wish you the best of luck in rejecting future candidates.



Law School Admissions / UVA Decision

So I just got the status update saying I've gone decision

I can't access the admitted student site.  Should I brace myself for a denial/waitlist?

Ahhh I shouldn't have checked!

General Off-Topic Board / Miserable weather
« on: February 28, 2007, 10:05:08 AM »
It's 33 degrees and pouring, the sun hasn't been out in 3-4 days, and no law school related mail has found its way to me in like a week....soo I decided to not go to class today.  At least the snow is melting though...

Anyone else here stuck with *&^% ass weather?

Law School Admissions / Will updated transcripts hold up decisions?
« on: February 27, 2007, 09:18:05 AM »
I sent in an updated transcript and new reports got sent out on the 23rd.  Are schools going to wait for the new LSDAS report before continuing my evaluation?

Financial Aid / Vastly underestimated CoL
« on: February 25, 2007, 04:57:55 PM »
Why do financial aid offices often drastically underestimate room/board expenses - especially when it comes to schools in large metropolitan areas.

For example - GWU says it's estimated room/board is something like 12,500.  I'm sorry, but unless you are willing to live rather far from the school and/or in a run down apartment in a bad neighborhood, 12,500 is likely to be just enough to cover RENT in DC, and even NoVa/Maryland burbs.  Then comes food, utilities, etc...

What gives?

What's the big idea, sending a "financial aid postcard" via email.

Christ I'm losing patience with schools and their stupid emails

General Off-Topic Board / This is bunk
« on: February 16, 2007, 08:36:50 AM »
The University of Illinois announced today that it would retire Chief Illiniwek, the school's symbol, in deference to the hypersensitive left.

Radical, politically correct, hypersensitivity is destroying higher education.

There, I said it.

This blows.
