ha! i can definitely see some motivation for chatting up LSDers, that way, you can generally assume the person you've engaged is as neurotic as you and wont be one of those "im just sitting back and waiting for my cycle to happen" people that find people like yourself, crazy.

So I broke down and called USC after spending a half hour on a letter of continued interest. They said, and I quote “Correspondence regarding your application was sent on April 13th”

bleck. i guess i'll know soon if i get the choice like you folks. isoredawaitlist, does your offer to swap still stand? i think UT is awesome but USC is so much closer to my fam.

as far as placement and all of that (look at me try to pretend im not self-absorbed and that i'm actually responding to the OP). I think you can't lose with either school and it ends up being a personal choice.

hah. its so good to hear that there are others as obnoxious as I.

my SO wants to do law school next cycle so he is pretty interested in the process but i talk about it enough to get even him burned out. but sometimes talking about it with him drives me crazy because he hasn't taken the LSAT so he doesn't know what he'll get so he focuses on all of the amazing people going to top 10 schools thinking he'll be one of them. which he might be. and wont that be tough on the relationship...

those of you with the 1L SOs or those that are applying the same time as your SO, is competition ever an issue? or is love above all that?

In your circumstances, go to Loyola, no contest.

agreed!

What about Loyola vs. Pepperdine?  No money from either


Sorry to hijack thread!

ummm, this one is tougher...

Law School Admissions / Re: Tacit Deferral?

thanks! i actually called a week or so ago and they said my file was "Ready for Review" which i inferred to me "Untouched" and that they wanted to have almost all decisions by early May. I said, thanks. . . not that i was thankful, but mostly to avoid some weird sort of blacklist "bitchey" tag attached to my file.

i hope you get good news (and soon)! whats the deal with the law panel? is it just for informational purposes for next year applicants?

i know someone that worked at the hastings admissions office and he said they gave everyone an index number and sorted according to that. he didnt talk about who they got to first, but he made it sound like they barely read the people at the super top top and uber bottom of the index.

i know that doesn't help. but im bored and i felt like sharing. goodluck, though. i know back in Feb i thought i couldnt wait any longer and now its mid-april and i've somehow survived the waiting. i'd like to surrender and declare my last school's decision meaningless if it doesn't arrive within the next month but i know i still want it bad.

theres a reason people play hard to get. because it works.
