And I thought I was getting away from law school mail for a week. HA.

@#!* em. A f-ing window envelope. Bitches.

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.

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.

for some reason i find a MSW  attractive if i were to get into family law...or maybe a MPH...

Hey, on a full darrow, you can afford to go into family law out of Michigan. Not to mention the excellent faculty specializing in the subject.

Come on, you know you wanna be a wolverine.  ;)

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?

They do not believe in dancing

...until Kevin Bacon shows up in a VW Bug blasting ACDC.  :D

Can't believe his buddy in that movie died recently.  Think his name was William Penn? I'm guessing he was Sean Penn's bro.

Baylor - Everyone is attractive, but extremely religious.  They do not believe in dancing and they study constantly for fear of losing their full tuition scholarship.

When I hear Baylor I feel the immediate urge to stop slouching and salute someone.   ;D

Data snagged Michigan, which was pretty awesome (though I'm not sure of how much of a longshot he really was).

Now if only Cornell would be so kind to me...

Hey tj, You and I both hope Cornell will be kind  :)

Columbia students are bigoted pricks.

At Harvard, the blow jobs are free.

Georgetown and Penn have a wondrous laid back atmosphere where the law is absorbed through osmosis.

Cornell is filled with beer guzzling hooligans.



Do they cost where you're from?

Trying to get your post count up there, D-man?  ;)

Heh, nahh... just respondin' to you knuckleheads  :)

Law School Admissions / Re: OSU- personal statement
« on: February 18, 2007, 10:30:49 AM »
did anyone send in a personal statement AND a diversity statement to OSU? Also for those who have heard back from OSU, what was the wait time after you went complete?

Hey Dude, uh lets see... sent the app out like Mid October and 5 days later got an email from the Dean (prob a mass email), Laura Dean, that said thank you for applying and some other stuff about what a great intellectual environment OSU is etc etc.  I pretty much took that as a sign that I was complete.  So, moved from applying to complete fairly quick in my case.

I sent a personal statement and diversity statement to every school I applied to whether they asked for one or not.  Hope that helps some.   

Law School Admissions / Re: MSU vs Wayne vs UofD

What's COL? So...

1. Umich
2. Wayne
3. MSU (on the rise)
4. UofD
5. Ave Maria
6. Cooley

I'd rearrange that a bit:

1. UMich
2. Wayne
3. Ave Maria
4. MSU
5. University of Detroit Mercy
6. Cooley

My opinion is based largely on the fact that, although Ave Maria is an exceptionally small law school with a helluva religious slant, their curriculum is semi-rigorous and I have seen them used a number of times as a springboard for entry into U of M.  Seeing as UMich transfers are 80% in-state residents they have to come from somewhere. 

MSU College of Law is sinking fast.  University of Detroit Mercy has always been sub-par but they are still considered better than Cooley.  And my thoughts on Cooley are that the school is a joke and it will never escape this reputation for as long as it exists.     

Ave Maria and MSU are both on the rise, its just a question of which will rise faster.

Seeing as MSU sank from Tier 3 to 4 this last go 'round, not quite sure how you can make that assessment?
