Denials / Re: Rejections for Fall 2007

I am officially the person with the highest index number on LSN this cycle to be dinged at Boalt. It is a dubious honor, but I wear it well.

dashrashi, that's crazy!  Your numbers are damn near perfect.  You have A LOT of other options however.

Uh me and about 10,000 others from the last couple of days got the boot from UDub. 

:( Sorry to hear that Data, but you still have Michigan! And Michigan is AMAZING! :)

I know, but I have a fear of rejection.  Hold me.  :)

I guess this means if Friday comes and passes with no e-mail, it's a rejection or the waitlist for us.

That brings things into perspective a little.  Getting kinda nervous now.  Is there any observable pattern of approximately how many deferrals are given the nod, or is it totally random?

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Feeling a little down & confused

Hey there,

I've gotten into two schools already and am waiting on eight more. Haven'tbeen rejected from any yet, but am feeling paranoid and nervous (especially after seeing the threadson here that schools are 'done' giving out acceptances) tha I only have two choices..UW-Madison & U of Miami. If these are my only two choices, I'll chose UW-Madison, primarily based on its rank and the fact that I get in-state tution

I guess I am feeling bad because I have always lived in Wisconsin (Milwaukee) and don't like it very much. There are a variety of reasons but mostly I want to live in a bigger city/metropolitan area and experience something new. Everyone keeps saying UW-Madison is regional school and I'll be stuck in WI/IL and that freaks me out because I don't want that. But at the same time, I don't necessarily want to be stuck in Miami either. I should be happy I got in a decent school but I feel sort of diaspointed because I am not getting that "I'm really moving up" feeling.

I don't really know what type of advice I am looking for but some words of encouragement would be nice. Thanks.

northernstar, why is it that you only have two choices?  If you don't like the areas that you applied to, why diddn't you apply to more schools?

whoops - I applied to ten schools, literally across the country and everywhere in between. I thought I had LSN in my signature http://www.lawschoolnumbers.com/display.php?user=northernstar


You state that you narrowed it down to only two possibe choices.  Meaning the schools that you have either applied for or gotten into are not satisfactory.  So in light of that, I was asking why you didn't cast a wider net- possibly to some schools that you would really like to go to.

So, is anyone here considering a joint degree at Mich? I'm looking pretty seriously at the M.P.P. program. The Ford School has a reputation for excellence in quantitative analysis, but they incorporate classes in the necessary calculus and statistics into their first-year curriculum, which is very unique and very cool. I'm pretty interested in economic, particularly market regulation, and tax policy, all areas where Ford excels, so the joint program is a big point in UM's favor for me.


i'm also looking at the MPP.  i'm just not sure if i want to spend an extra year in school and get myself an extra year in debt.

I'm looking to joint degree with a PhD hopefully . . . I'm hoping the summerstart will give me an advantage time-wise though.


lol if I had a Darrow, I'd definitely be going to Mich ;)
>:( >:( >:( Stop teasing us Miss Celies >:( >:( >:(


 :) Seriously though, what would it take for you to choose UMich over Columbia or anyone else that accepts you that's either higher ranked or more prestigious than UMich?  Is it an actual possibility or are you thinking probably not?


Ha ha I wasn't teasing.  If I had a Darrow, I'd go to Mich no contest w/o $$ from CLS.  But I'm hoping for decent fin aid from both.  CLS is only 6gs more than MIch, so to me 18k is a somewhat negligible amt, i can make that in a summer.

I'm going to be visiting Mich, UVa, and CLS and figuring out the pros and cons of each (tho right now it seems like a Mich v CLS battle).

I'm hoping that I get an epiphany--I can't picture myself at both schools, I just don't like CLS's housing options.

And dont' talk about teasing, from the dude who's go to Cornell over Mich. ;)


She's got a point - you can't advocate a strict p-ho position and choose Cornell over UMich. 

Gengiswump, Gengiswump... Now why would you gang up on poor 'lil Data?  :-\ 

But you know what, I don't mind.  You and Miss Celies can take me down a notch anytime  ;)

Does WUSTL normally have interview? I just got an email asking me when I'll have time to talk with them about my backgrounds and interests...

Wow that's a new one.  Any idea as to why they'd like to interview you?  And no, to my knowledge they don't usually interview. 
A new one? Somebody met this before? I don't know. They want to know more about me, I'm confused...

Uh what I meant was I've never heard of that before, because they usually don't do interviews.  Do you have any idea why they would want to interview you?
