I got waived from ED to regular and got in quite late in the cycle.  Take that for whatever.

I have no relationship and my summer WL letter didn't imply one existed.

Vandy took two off the waitlist. 166 + 3.6 it looks like.

That's basically me... tag.

Bringing this thread back from the dead.  UT coughed up more money, and that, together with an awesome offer to work during law school from my current firm, was enough to convince me - I'm going to TEXAS !!!

Glad you decided to join up.  Info on the 1L football group is on facebook :)

Hook 'em!

Jack Johnson - Sitting, Waiting, Wishing

Well I was sitting, waiting, wishing
You believed in superstitions
Then maybe you'd see the signs

The Lord knows that this world is cruel
I ain't the Lord, no I'm just a fool
Learning lovin' somebody don't make them love you

Must I always be waiting, waiting on you
Must I always be playing, playing your fool

I sang your songs, I danced your dance
I gave your friends all a chance
But putting up with them
Wasn't worth never having you

Maybe you've been through this before
But it's my first time so please ignore
The next few lines cause they're directed at you

I can't always be waiting, waiting on you
I can't always be playing, playing your fool

I keep playing your part
But it's not my scene
Want this plot to twist
I've had enough mystery
Keep building it up
Then shooting me down
But I'm already down

Just wait a minute
Just sitting, waiting
Just wait a minute
Just sitting, waiting

Well, if I was in your position
I'd put down all my ammunition
I'd wonder why'd it taken me so long

But Lord knows that I'm not you
And if I was, I wouldn't be so cruel
Cause waitin' on love aint so easy to do

Must I always be waiting, waiting on you
Must I always be playing, playing your fool

No, I can't I always be waiting, waiting on you
I can't always be playing, playing your fool

Summer WL.  One of my good friends just got in to Duke who was planning on going to Cornell, so there is at least one spot open.

did he/she get into Duke's summer or regular fall program off the wl?

Yep.

Got an email from Cardozo admissions on Monday asking if I want to remain on the waitlist and if I'm interested in the PT September-start program. I emailed back a few questions. The email was signed by the Dean of Admissions and was directed to me (Dear First Name).

To follow up on my previous post, they offered me a spot in the September-start part time program, but I said that without substantial merit-based aid, it wasn't worth it for me (I have higher-ranked options). I'm still on the list for the regular program... and can't believe how weird my cycle has been (waitlisted at T14s AND schools at the bottom of the first tier).

Cardozo seems to be in need of students... I withdrew months ago and today they offered me a gigantic scholarship offer which I'd have to accept by Monday.

Last year Cardozo students and the administration seemed sure their ranking would go up in 2007 - I'm not sure that it did, but if it did, it was not by much. There's an iron curtain between #16 and #50 - schools will move within that range but not more than 10ish points in the span of a few years... and they'll never break through the iron curtain! Although imagine how many copies of the Best Law Schools issue USNews would sell if a new school broke into the T14... Anyway, Fordham was the most impressive leap I've seen this far - up 7 points since 2006. Cardozo isn't going to pull that off anytime soon(I don't think, correct me if I'm wrong), and because there are three higher-ranked schools in Manhattan (plus Cornell upstate, don't forget), they're going to need to start offering mad money... like they offered you. But it seems like you're better off at... UT?

Why the question mark?  You think I might not be better off at UT?
