Law School Applications / Re: Why Penn?

I hate to be a stick in the mud, but I feel I have to give a counterpoint to the "creative" approach. I hear (from interviews with them) that most admissions people do not like the gimmicky essays. It is almost always better to send a normal essay (interesting, but not too strange). That said, if you are applying to a school that is a huge reach (like below 10%) then gimmick all you want.

Does anyone else think how funny it is that so much of our fellow posters here are our competition and yet we help each other? It's a good world.

May I say the speed of this forum's response is staggering. It is very refreshing.

In order of ranking (and probably inverse probability of getting in)

Yale
Columbia
Penn
Virginia
Michigan
Berkley (maybe)
Duke
Cornell
Georgetown
UTexas
UCLA
USC
Vanderbilt
GW
Washington U(done)
W & L(done)
BYU
George Mason(done)
SMU(done)
Baylor(done)

Yes, I know that is TONS, but about half gave me a waiver and I just want to make sure I'm getting in somewhere good and that I (hopefully) have options

Law School Applications / Non-binding Early Notification
« on: October 17, 2006, 04:53:07 PM »
I was reading Cornell's application and I was wondering what other top schools have non-binding early notification programs (where you apply by Nov. 1 or 15th and they will reply quicker, but you still don't HAVE TO go wherever you get in.

I know, myself, offhand of:

UTexas
Cornell
Washington U. in St. Louis
