Recommendations / Re: LSAC Misconduct for Letter of Recommendation
« on: February 17, 2009, 09:34:55 PM »
Just a thought . . . This letter must have been pretty extravagant to prompt LSAC to call the sender.

I was wondering that made them call your recommender...

Seconded, I am curious as well.

I don't think an appeal by the recommender is going to help tbh.  It is understood that a percentage of recs are actually written by the student, because recommenders are lazy shites.  But to write your own and then sign it yourself...  If you get accepted to ANY school, I will honestly be surprised.

I can not say I want to wish you luck, but I do feel really bad for what was obviously a huge error in judgment.

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: Nova or Stetson????
« on: February 16, 2009, 07:08:23 PM »
Have you already been accepted to both?

Stetson usually gives money out when your LSAT is 160+.

I live and work in the legal field in Tampa and I can honestly say I know of no attorneys that attended Nova.  It is like a Stetson alumni meeting where I work.  They are also nationally recognized for their Mock Trial team.  And I've heard from an Emory law grad that competing on Stetson's Mock Trial team makes you golden. (Exaggeration I am sure)

Frankly, Stetson just has the better name recognition.  Especially in the Tampa/St. Pete area which I consider SoFla...

Got the call!  In at FSU!

If you want some more info on the school, I hear they're hosting the ASW at Ninja1's house. 

LOL  Can I bring my mother?  She has some questions about financial aid.  ;)

I doubt you'd want to bring her...bring a tazer though.

lol I was referencing the epic tale from the ASW PSA post.  lol a Tazer is a v. good idea though.

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: in-state tuition after one year

Rutgers offers in state tuition immediately if you sign a 12 month lease in NJ.

Can you show me this on their website?  I've heard of this (specifically about the Newark campus) but I cannot find anything on their website about Camden OR Newark.

Law School Applications / Re: Would you call?

My first instinct was not to call, but since then I've had a friend who is also applying telling me to "Call! Call!"

So I thought I'd get more opinions.

Law School Applications / Would you call?
« on: February 10, 2009, 02:37:45 PM »
My status check just changed from "in review" to "decision made and will arrive by mail".  The fact that this happened within a matter of 3 hours leads me to think I may be auto-admit or auto-denial...  Which leads me to stress out.

This school is def one of my top choices and I am going nuts already. 

Question:  Would you call the school to find out the decision, or wait it out?
