Law School Applications / Accepted While Still Merely "Complete" ?

Have you been accepted to a school with a status checker that still had you at "complete" while informing you of their decision?

I ask this because I'm going totally nuts.

A school that sent me a hardcopy fee waiver, that I have already applied with, just sent me a $50 check as reimbursement for my application fee.

A test?

What are the odds that all Northwestern EA applicants receive decisions by 1/15/07, as was promised?

Or was that not promised?

Law School Applications / I Think USC's Applications Are Down Thus Far

Just received an, "Oh, you requested materials in the Fall but are yet to apply!" e-mail from USC.

If you really wanted to go there and didn't apply because of borderline numbers, consider this as a possible good sign.

Law School Applications / Northwestern Forgot to E-Mail Me

Think this means they won't end up letting me go there?

Law School Applications / Unconventional 250

July 22, 2006.  There was no way I was getting over that hurdle.  My track and field history would suggest a photo opportunity was in our midst.  In 1991, as part of my elementary school field day, I somehow got conned into participating in the hurdles, which Iíd never done; which 11-year-olds should never do.  I sprained my left ankle, received six stitches on my right shin and broke the orbit around my left eye; and all this happened before the first hurdle!  I tripped early on, and only my orbit reached the metal.  In 2002, I broke my wrist trying to be funny on the track.  I approached a hurdle at full speed and tried to push it down instead of jumping over it.  Of course the hurdle was bolted to the floor and my wrist snapped like a twig.  Is this even legal!  Is it legal in sports to punish failure with injury this serious?  I was away from the hurdles for nearly 5 years when, in 2006, I faced the high-class leapfrog once again.  This time the stakes were high: ooh I loved that girl, and she was a state champion hurdler.  I honestly donít know how I got myself into this position again, facing a row of hurdles.  I really wanted to impress Marissa.  It is ironic that she was the person I awoke to, performing mouth-to-mouth resuscitation on me.  So, Iím a failure at hurdling, right?  Wrong!  Well, no, right, but I got the girl!

Law School Applications / Returning Phone Calls - Proper Etiquette?
« on: January 08, 2007, 08:06:56 AM »
What's the going practice on returning phone calls from admissions departments?  I'm dealing with a message on my cell phone from a school's director of admissions congratulating me.  She was not informing me of admission, the call was a follow up to the package they sent.

Do you call back in this kind of situation?

What about if it's an acceptance notification message?
