Law School Admissions / Re: THE MAIL CALL THREAD
« on: May 17, 2007, 11:59:17 AM »
Off WL and accepted at Harvard! Haven't got the paperwork yet, but had a phone interview followed by a phone-acceptance with Toby.

Got a phone interview (I was on WL) last week and an acceptance voicemail this wee!. Toby was super cool! I can't imagine  a more helpful or friendly person.

I've left two voice-mails with the asst. dean of admissions as per instructions of the admissions office personnel, but have had no response so far. I must say, that while it seems an excellent school, their administration has been less than professional.

I'm flying out this weekend. Anything in particular I should do, see etc? I've never been in the area or CA at all for that matter so suggestions are welcome. If it matters, I'm currently on waitlist there, but in at Harvard and at UVA (with $$$).

I don't know who cardozo is, but I had a phone interview last week from Toby and was accepted off wait-list a few days later! I'd take it as a good sign!

Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / Re: Blacks and LSAT scores

Just FYI the kaplan course worked wonders for me, I'd highly recommend them. The course I took was quite diverse, with minorities probably being over-represented as compared to the general population demographics.

WL'd at Harvard, no interview.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Vandy $$$ or UVA

I'd vote UVA, but I don't know a lot about Vandy.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Is UVa safe?

Yep I can't think of a safer school (in the US or UK, no direct exp in AU). Anywhere in the world there's always some risk, its a fact of life, but the risk is really minimal. Think about how many hundreds of thousands of students there are in many thousands of universities across the US, as sad as it is with that many sooner or later something bad is going to happen, but your probably more likely to die by slipping in a bathtub. Heck, UMD has more students than Oxford, Cambridge and LSE combined (I think)!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: No bubble sheet?

I managed to mix up which room I was supposed to be in and peeked into another room before figuring it out(also LSAT test takers, but not with last names starting with M...), it was pretty lame and the proctor (a young military guy it looked) was giving some poor kid a really hard time. I was happily surprised when I found our room and our nice, friendly proctors!

Yep, leaning toward UVA, unless something unexpected happens (like an acceptance letter from Stanford).
