General Off-Topic Board / Re: Why are Korean girls so hot but cliquey?
« on: April 05, 2007, 09:24:03 PM »
 ::) man, i was waiting for someone to differentiate between FOBS and korean-americans and i think firewalker touched upon it, but not satisfactorily.

koreans are clique-y in general, but if you live in a building for foreigners they probably bought their way into the school and can barely speak english.

as for korean girls caring about nothing but good looks and getting a bf, man you have NOOOOOOOOO idea how bad it can get for the real deal back home. i blame the system, not the girls. take the extreme capitalism and greed in america, combine with confucian ideal system and community mentality and you have an entire nation subject to fads and following one model of living: men - get rich. women - marry rich men.

as for us korean-am gals in the states... well~ i would say we are no more clique-y than say .... jewish american princesses.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Anyone bringing pets?

yeah, I think that's my plan too.  I'd prefer a dog, but I think a cat would probably make more sense.  My only issue with cats is that there are some that are great/friendly and then some that are anti-social and bratty (if cat can be such a thing).  I don't see the point in having a cat that is unloving and anti-social...kind of defeats the purpose in getting a pet if you ask me. 

Okay time for a dumb question:  Are there certain breeds of cats that are friendlier than others?  For example golden retrievers are known to be some of the friendliest there such a breed among cats?

definitely! from wiki:
"Ocicats are a very outgoing breed. They are often considered to have the spirit of a dog-in a cat's body. Most can easily be trained to fetch, walk on a leash and harness, come when called, speak, sit, lie down on command and a large array of other dog-related tricks. Some even take readily to the water. Ocicats are also very friendly. They will typically march straight up to strangers and announce that they'd like to be petted. This makes them great family pets, and most can also get along well with animals of other species. Ocicats make excellent pets for people who want to spend a lot of time with their cat, but they do require more attention than cats who aren't so people-oriented."

But like someone said, all cats are complex and they all have their own personalities. I've had my american shorthair since he was a baby and he loves being held and he comes when called. Definitely taking him with me to Atlanta to a cat-friendly apt.

Financial Aid / Remember to shop around for your loans!

sometimes the loan that schools offer you may not be the best option if you can find a bank that will give you better terms..

Financial Aid / Re: It's all Greek to me...

I doubt that's the case.  Just as an example, Emory starts mailing out financial aid (not scholarships) on April 1, but their first deposit is due postmarked April 15th.

Btw Imelda, love* your user name and the way you set up your schools. Amidst all this anxiety over financing law school it made me smile.



William & Mary:

FASFA Code: 003705
Need Access: No
Deadline: 2/15/07

Washington & Lee

FASFA Code: 003768
Deadline: 2/15/07
Need Access: ?

To add one more Southeastern Schol


FAFSA Code: 001564
Deadline: 3/1/07 (FAFSA priority deadline for Emory)
Need Acces: yes (need-based aid)
School Forms: Application for need-based aid and scholarship due 2/1
CSS Profile: YES (2/1/07 priority deadline)

Question: I just submitted my CSS Profile right now, and at the end it said that "my school" sends out need-based financial aid letters starting April 1 and that I should expect to hear from them before.  But since I submitted my CSS Profile as of April 5, does that mean I will not or likely not get financial aid????

 :-[ i'd like to meet up and have drinks with you guys but i don't have facebook...... i'm open to pm's tho~

also, i'm staying at the holiday in 2 miles from the university campus. should i rent a car or cab everywhere all weekend?

and anyone staying longer? i bought a clearance ticket to atlanta so i'm staying till tuesday morning. i'll probably poke my head in on classes on monday but sunday i'm free to hang out.

 :) thanks for the advice ari~ for a junior member you seem very well-informed.

i'll see the rest of you this weekend at the emory asw!

 ;) I was accepted in late january, maybe a week before the feb.1 financial aid deadline. 

imo, getting in at emory didn't mean anything for my other schools. i basically got in if my LSAT was higher or at the school's median.

so far, emory has given me the most money (almost 60k), so i guess that means i should start apartment hunting soon and send in the first deposit! i'm in at fordham pt, although i've heard no word about financial aid from them. am i crazy to choose emory over fordham if i'll be practicing in ny?

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Reserve List at Cornell?
« on: April 03, 2007, 07:26:39 PM »

yah i don't quite remember too clearly but didn't the letter say several hundred were on the reserve list and that our apps get reviewed again around may and that's when people are dropped and the official waitlist is created?

this is like the waitlist to get on the waitlist!
