Law School Applications / Re: Updated Transcripts?
« on: February 07, 2007, 04:16:33 PM »
Does LSAC nail you for the $12 again if you send in an updated transcript? Not that $12 is anything significant, it's just the principle of the thing...

Things Jersey is:
1. NYC's trash can
2. The Armpit of a Nation
3. A toilet for Canadian snow geese

Things Jersey is not:
1. Awesome
2. Good for your health
3. Among the top 49 states I think of when I ask myself where I want to live

Of course you forgot the BEST thing that's ever come out of New Jersey...

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Not being a lawyer

Law school is a very tough proposition, and you shouldn't go into it half-cocked. If you do, you'll likely end up performing unspectacularly and end up on the conveyer belt to perpetual BIGLAW associateship.

Wow... this is the first time I've ever heard anyone say something like "If you don't do well, you're going to get STUCK working BIGLAW." Just about everyone else I've heard said "If you don't do exceptionally well, there's NO CHANCE of getting a BIGLAW job."
So if I want to work BIGLAW, I have to do very well in school. If I don't want to work BIGLAW, I have to do pretty well in school or else I'll get stuck there. Sounds like, whatever my ambitions are, I better do pretty well in school...

Law School Applications / Re: Hofstra - did anyone get this?

As an update, I recieved a call from the Director of Admission about 1/2 hour ago (8:30 pm) apologizing for the mistake and checking to make sure I recieved their apology error. It was a mistake, one that anyone could make, but at least they're doing right by apologizing for it and going the extra mile to do so...

Law School Applications / Re: HOFSTRA EMAIL A MISTAKE

I not only received an email apologizing for the error, but also recieved a phone call about 1/2 hour ago (8:30 pm) from the Dean of admissions apologizing for the mistake. While it may have been a screw-up to begin with, kudos to Hofstra for going the extra mile in apologizing. Everyone makes mistakes... it's how you make up for them that really tells the tale.

indeed the letter smelled bad....smelled like british food.

i don't think boston is known for its food - it doesn't have anything named after it like philly does (philly cheesesteak)  except maybe new england clam chowder, which is a bit gross IMO


How could you forget Boston Baked Beans? of course, the after effects of consuming said beans might not be the most favorable association with Boston...

I'll bet it was because of this line...

      If this is not a mistake, thank you very much. I look forward to taking a deeper look at the new website and all that Hofstra offers. If this is a mistake... :-(

It's all about the :-(.  How could they not take an extra minute and personally respond when they see a :-(   ?   It just begs for sympathy and compassion... let's just hope that the adcom sees the :-(  as well.

I got in, and all I submitted for my PS was :-(

Lol! Why did I waste my time with all those edits and re-writes! I knew I shoulda just used the power of the :-( !

Well, I got my response... not sure if it's the same generic one that they sent to everyone or if they really took the time to reply to my particular email. It sounds a little too official/neutral to be written specifically for me, but here it is...

Dear >>RobWreck<<<,

Recently you received an e-mail announcing the launch of our new website, which
referred to your acceptance.  I sincerely apologize for any confusion, however
this e-mail was sent in error.  Please note that although the new Web site is
now active, the Admissions Committee is currently reviewing your application.  I
will ensure your application is handled with the utmost care and will notify you
under separate cover when a decision is reached. 

For your information, all admission decisions are released by postal mail under
the signature of the Dean or Assistant Dean for Enrollment Management.

If you have any questions regarding the status of your application, please feel
free to contact me directly, 516.463.4023. Again, I apologize for any confusion
this e-mail may have caused.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Sincerely,

Karen Vahey
Director of Admissions


Is this what everyone else got by means of an apology?

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Hofstra Email
« on: February 05, 2007, 10:24:43 AM »
I just tried calling them about 5 minutes ago (10:20 am EST) and it the call went to voicemail. No real surprise there... I'd imagine that they are getting ALOT of phone calls this morning. Of course, they still haven't responded to the email I sent them Friday evening regarding this... I can only imagine how hectic it must be today in their admissions office. The worst job there must be the guy that has to tell people "Yes, we did accidentally send you an acceptance email, but actually your application was denied. So sorry..."  :'(
Rob

PS: I didn't recieve a second email this morning, so it is possible that they are only sending that second email to people that are already accepted to the school...
