The more important question is, is it a T-5?  Then you'll almost certainly need french-cuffs.

lol, very nice.

Personally I kinda like French Cuffs.  Cuff links are fun.

Cuff links?  Pssssh, silk knots are the only way to go, of course.

That's my attempt of the day at a joke.  In all seriousness though, any kind of cuff links can come off somewhat a-hole-ish, but that is the problem with any accessory.  Being conservative with them, however, does not mean boring.  You can have a strong sense of style without being over-the-top.

I was a "fluff" major (English Lang & Lit) at a peer school to UVa (UChicago) and it didn't really hurt me.  I applied with a 3.48 and graduated with a 3.63, so maybe the upward trend helped, but as long as you bust ass on the LSAT, a solid GPA is a solid GPA.  There is some truth in the "Legally Blonde" method--a 4.0 from anywhere in any major is still a 4.0

I guess there is now absolutely no chance I'll be going anywhere other than Cornell.  DC was a nice dream while it lasted.

The email is below.  It is about a week old now, so I'm not sure if it is the one you are thinking of.

Dear Super Awesome Dude,

I hope this message finds you well and enjoying the early days of summer.  As promised by Dean Cornblatt, I'm e-mailing to give you an update on the waiting list situation at Georgetown University Law Center.

We have now received all of our second, and final, set of tuition deposits.  While we thought it was possible that some spaces would open up in Georgetown's entering class, the response to our deadline was quite strong.  Thus, we do not expect to make many offers in the near future.

We also understand that many of you are faced with deadlines at other schools and that this delay may mean that you will need to go forward with your enrollment plans elsewhere.

Thank you for your continuing interest in Georgetown.

Got an email yesterday telling me that they'd likely not get very many more WL offers out.  Meh, whatever. 

I took the October 07 LSAT, which was the first to have the parallel reading questions.  I'd say not to stress. If you are solid on RC in general, you will do fine on the parallels.  Just be sure to underline key terms if you are prone to forgetting them.

Remember that anyone can get GradPLUS assuming there is not something disastrous in their credit and they are not a member of Al-Qaeda. Seriously, I've known some people with pretty bad credit (credit card defaults, and that sort of thing) but they still got GradPLUS.

I'd take UPenn.

You need to register at  You enter your info there, they check it, and send you your NetID and a confirmation code via snail mail.

Remembering back to 7th grade and then 11th grade civics, the logic behind the electoral college explained to me was that the people of the United States were essentially not educated enough to be trusted with a direct choice.  Can anyone really maintain that argument any more?
