K. Durant is going to own March Madness.

I got them in the Elite Eight, beating UNC and losing to Georgetown.

jbruin, WTF is up with your cycle.  Everytime I look at your LSN I get so F****** frustrated!   >:(  All I can say is they don't know a good thing when they see it.

Zero acceptances, lots of dings, a few deferrals and waitlists, and a few pending since early November!!!

Wow, condolences... I remember when I was a part of this thread once.

Yeah... seriously.  I miss chillin' with you all in this thread.  Too bad fmlaw has been accepted now.  Everyday we'd go "awwww.. sorry dude."   :)

What I did know of OSU I liked.  They were the only Tier 1 school early on -that didn't have to "think" about how interested they were in me as a member of their 2010 class... and I appreciated that. 

They have an unbelieveable athletic program.  Consequently, virtually everyone knows OSU's gonna clean house.

Law School Applications / Re: Big Law Question

Forgive my ignorance, but I was wondering if it is only possible to break into biglaw in the term after one graduates from ls or is it possible to join a firm in the middle of the year after one graduates or whatnot? Thanks.

Register for the Students & Graduates discussion board (see left).  I have a feeling they'd know a lot more with regard to your question than the applicants you might run into here.  Just a suggestion.

Also got the email from Dean Zearfoss this morning. (3.68 169)

Last Thursday I was in the dumps with nothing but deferrals (6 of them) and waitlists (2) since December...then I get a money offer from Duke, and an acceptance from Michigan.  I'm right back on top.  This is a DON'T LOSE HOPE message to those still waiting.

I'm just bummed that I can't make a UM ASW now.  I've missed the first and the second conflicts with G'Town and Duke, and I already have airline tickets and RSVPs in at both.  Well, I'm not that bummed. ;D

Good for you tapper!  That 165-169 range is tricky.  For the T14 schools in most cases, I think they see the scores as high, but whether or not it is high enough depends on a whole lot of other factors.  Needless to say it also creates a lot of waiting too.  CONGRATS though I love seeing success through adversity.  Go figure  :P

Law School Applications / Re: My eye started twitching today.
« on: March 08, 2007, 12:18:14 AM »
I am so nervous that I'm not going to get accepted anywhere.  This afternoon my eye started twitching while I was thinking about it, and it hasn't stopped twitching on and off all day! I'm pretty sure it is nerves.

And I thought I was nervous about taking the LSAT...that was nothing, apparently.

Anyone else as stressed out as me?

Thanks for letting me vent.

Jen2bJD:  You've applied to very reasonable choices that match your stats.  You have nothing to worry about you'll get accepted to one of them I promise ;).  The late applications may hurt you at some places but there's no way you'll not be accepted somewhere.  Waiting just sucks, still, it's a rite of passage.

Ok guys, in at Yale.  And as I've stated earlier:  If a Yale acceptance were to come along, NOTHING else in my world would matter... I have thus withdrawn from absolutely everywhere but Yale.  It's been one amazing miracle after another.  First UMich and then Yale.  I'm ecstatic!!  Oh, and I haven't slept in going on 48 hours either.   ;D

Wow - congrats!  It's great to see that at least some schools are genuinely willing to look at the candidate as a whole...I think you're becoming the inspirational story of this forum. 

Wow we're all in trouble if that's the case!
Damn, incredible

Congrats Data!

Thanks Illini07, and Congrats yourself on Cornell!  A small part of me still wishes I were going.  Hell, a small part of me wishes Cornell would have accepted me by now.  Ah, such is life.  Sent your apps in a bit later eh?  Looks like you might have a bit of a wait? 

Wow, congrats, Data!!

At first, seeing your acceptance made me regret not applying to Yale. Then I remembered that, unlike me, you're interesting.

I feel better now.

Heh, c'mon now Georgetown and UVA are TOP options!!!  I'm partial to Koreans (especially to the women) So, you have that going for you which should be interest enough for the adcomms.  And if not screw 'em!   :D  Speaking of which, that is you in your "self 'tar" right?

Congrats!  Enjoy it.

Thanks, Dude!

First time I've congratulated anyone (I'm a jerk), but you deserve it.  Completely awesome!  What website did you start?

Heh, thanks Seona!  Man, I wish I could say but I don't think that'd be too smart.  Don't want you jerks lookin' for handouts just kiddin'   :P 

OMG Congrats! You're the man!

kayak.com?

Uhhm, I'm gonna say its in that family.  Really, I didn't want to say that much, so you're lawyer bound for sure.   :)

congrats dataaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa that's amazingggggggggggggggg.  :D

now you'll be leaving us all in the dust  :'(

AHHH SugarJ, SugarJ.... what could have been in the hallowed halls of Cornell.  ;)

Ok guys, in at Yale.

WOW!!! Congratulations!!  It's an amazing success story, and I'm so happy to hear the news!

/and it appears your acceptance crashed the server.  thanks  ;D

Sladkaya... the exotically named LSD member who simultaneously makes me hungry and gives me an inferiority complex at the same time (with her Valedictorian status)- From the bottom of my heart, thank you.  Now that your cycle is through, have you decided where you'll go?

Ok, I expect to hear an explanation of what you think got you in there. Mich with your Grad GPA is somewhat understandable of a miracle... but f-ing Yale! Holy *&^%! Should I start holding my breath for Penn?

Hey dude, well I made some additions to my LSN so might tell you a little bit more about the soft factors and such.  You're surprised?  You and me both buddy... you and me both.  Oh and on Penn... Yes, you should.  Hold your breath that is.  They saw something they liked... that's for sure.

Wow that is amazing man! Huge congrats, what do you think made you stand out? If you don't mind me asking.

Wow, huge congrats. What do you think made you stand out? If you dont mind me asking




Cougman, Thanks man!  Check out my LSN- added a bit more. 

I've gotta add my congratulations, Data, even if you've got two pages worth already (!!) -- Congratulations!!! What a fantastic affirmation of self, it's like the biggest pat on the back ever. I think I would frame the letter lol. You can now have any job I want. lol.

;D WTG

Hi SilentSwirl, by far the sweetheart of the acceptances thread. I Thank you.  P.s. One step ahead of you on the framing- Already had it dipped in platinum and encrusted with diamonds.   ;D

Ok guys, in at Yale.  And as I've stated earlier:  If a Yale acceptance were to come along, NOTHING else in my world would matter...

Congrats Data.  However, I feel like the LSD community is entitled to hear some insight into how you managed this amazing feat.  Please tell us the story! I am secretly hoping that you are the android from Star Trek the next generation, named Data.  But since you are a droid, you wouldn't understand the humor in this secret hope of mine.

Thanks jalong..!  Hm, well, I really don't know to tell you the truth.  I'm not too too comfortable in publicly posting personal information, but I put the basics of what I think led to the acceptances on my LSN page.  Sorry to seem stand-offish.  I really don't mean to- but in this crazy world you never know who is reading what and who could use what against you (ok, just realized I sound completely paranoid and like I haven't stepped out of my house in 10 years). :D

Data, yours is the most incredible cycle I've ever heard of! CONGRATULATIONS!! Hard to believe that you were rejected from BC and UW, and then got into YALE! That's unbelievable!

Maybe you could PM me your personal statement, so I can finally see what a good one is supposed to look like...

In any case, congrats again! I'm sure you deserve it!


Heh no *&^%!  Even still when I hear Boston College it sends cold, heartless shivers down my spine.  Just kiddin' all you Boston Collegers!  sheesh.  And sorry but the personal statement thing just says waaay too much about well, me personally.  Can't afford to have it misused or landing in the wrong hands.  For the same reason I cannot divulge where I work.  Sorry all. 


ACK!  ENOUGH ABOUT ME.  CONGRATS JER AND Illini07 on the Emory scholarship (I'm convinced they really didn't want to admit me but did anyway at the last second because they ran out of reasons NOT to) and Boston University!  MUCH better than BC in my opinion.  But then again I'm biased.  Well, yeah ok, more like hurt with undeniable feelings of inadequacy.     :P

Please accept my deepest apologies Miss Celies, But I had a severe case of: holding-on-to-decisions-you-know someone-is-desperately-waiting-for guilt.

 :'( :'( :'(

Are  you still gonna chill with me though??

Yea what website did you start?  PM me if you want.

Miss Celies I'd love to.  You sure the admitted UMich crowd won't shun me for being an admitted-withdrawee?  :-\
