Law School Admissions / Re: REJECTED, ETC. TODAY

okay, on my way home...expect a post from me within the hour!!!
Yep.  Yale rejection.  Totally expected and no big deal.

Wow, you totally called it... that should serve as some form of condolence.

I predict I'll receive mine tomorrow.

How much do I hate right now that I live allllll the way on the west coast! I'm sure I'll have mine by Monday  :D

Add me to the deferral group!!

I am actually quite surprised, as I pretty much expected an outright rejection. I don't expect that I'll eventually be admitted, but am flattered my application was not tossed immediately into a rejection pile!

Got my rejection today.  Ouch.  :-\

Oh man... if you rec'd one, I am sure mine is not far behind!!

Just a friendly reminder that the deadline for NU's financial aid (for grants and scholarships) is 2/15/08. Need Access and FAFSA due by this date...

FYI: I confirmed with the office that they do not need copies of submitted tax returns by this date to be considered for grants.

i heart northwestern.  their personalized email was the best thing ever.

and extra brownie points for alerting me via email that fedex shipped my admissions package today, and it will arrive on Wednesday.

You will love them even more once you actually get the package! Nicest one I have received so far :)

Thanks, Chicago! I'll always remember my first  ;)
After my acceptance to NU, I'm honestly not that disappointed.

Here are my (brief) thoughts...

facilities: nice! The gym is impressive. Maybe I would actually go if it was literally a 2 min walk from classes? Spouses can get a membership for $50/semester. Classrooms seem bright and spacious.

current students: Clearly the ones who volunteer to help with ASW's are a self-selected group, but everyone seemed friendly and had good things to say about the school. The curriculum B kids seem really really really happy about the alternative. Several students mentioned that the workload (for both A and B) weren't as bad as they expected.

classes: I sat in on a property class and a criminal justice class. While there was a fair share of scrabulous going on, which I'm sure happens at every school, students seemed willing to participate in the class and generally engaged. The "big" class size (~115) didn't seem too bad or intimidating.

professors: I was impressed by the "lunch w/ the professors." I was in the room with Prof. Epstein, who is the Dean (or Asst, whatever) of the clinical programs. The clinics, if you can get into one your 3rd yr, seem really amazing.

Only downsides (for me): admit students seem in general to be a younger bunch (maybe this is why NU is so appealing for an older person like me!!!  :D); COL for nice apts in the immediate area - i.e. walking distance - are higher than I would like to pay, so going here would mean commuting prob. 20-30 minutes every day. Also, the financial aid guy in my session indicated about 1/3 of the aid applicants are awarded grants... I have a feeling I will be in the other two-thirds  :-\

Congrats to all of the accepteds at NU (how's that for bad grammar - I am jetlagged from my cross-country flight from DC)!!

Hope to see all of you at the ASW.. it seems so far away though  :-\
