Would someone please inform me as to what these note taking programs do? Is there some benefit to using them instead of typing notes in Word?

I assume Cooley is still accepting applications, since I still get about 5 mailings a week from them asking me to apply. Plus, if you were rejected, you'd be the first.
Waitlisted at Wisconsin
Me too! Think you have any chance of getting in? I'd go there over my other choices, no question, but I'm not too confident about getting in off the wait list.
Write a diversity statement and try to illustrate to the committee what about your economic background makes you a unique competitor amongst other applicants. Talk about what you had to overcome, how it made you stronger. The strength of your writing/story should give them a sense of how legitimate your claim is.
As far as "proving" it - check what the federal govt considers to be poverty line - many are surprised to find that by fed gov standards they are not considered "poor." Might be odd for you to claim poverty as a part of your background if you have FAFSA reports showing a 40k annual salary.
Im sorry to break it to you but you are not going to see that this weekend. It's in the 30's at the moment here in Madison with light flurries. Its also been awhile since the sun peaked out. I believe its supposed to warm up a bit like somone previously mentioned (mid 40's, watch out its a heat wave) but if anything that will just make it a slushy mess around campus. Madison is a great town as so many people mentioned but the winters are extremely long. I think im struggling with it more than usual because I was in California two weeks ago and I didnt expect to come back to full blown winter weather in mid-april. Enjoy your visit.
