hbb, i would watch it with this guy. he knows the law like no other and isn't afraid to let you know when you are violating it. so, i would watch it with the mockery of xman. he scared me half to death when he sent me a message threatening legal action pertaining to my signature. he's just too smart for the rest of us. ::)

this is a rather worthless thread but i will add to it anyway.

if good news comes wouldnt that negate your argument completely? saying that no news is good news? i knew my LSAT studying would pay off for argumentative discussions  ;)

you know what else is worthless? sending me a message about my signature.

matthies, that is not how my logic worked. my logic was strong whereas yours is flawed to no end. you are assuming that simply changing around names is analogous to what my method of debate. i hope you haven't taken the LSAT yet.

assumptions like those will get you a score in the 1-2 Ohs.

well at least now all of you can comment on the toilet list at lawschoolmongoose. but try and keep it positive- the list is a new concept and a new idea, it cannot survive or grow with negative detractions.

seriously, i can't help but laugh every time you post.

boiler, since the post was directed towards me it is my discretion as to what it intended. that's how inferences and implications and deductions work.

um, i'm pretty sure that the person from whom the post originated gets to determine its intention. the recipient has no say.

Cady, it was obvious you were laughing with me and at melvin. your post doesn't indicate that you were insulting me, and frankly i'm offended you would say that.

so..the meaning of the post is for you to decide?

I would like to know about the cutoff at Cooley

all cooley grads are highly sought after.

i just gave the number to my recommenders, and they did the rest. but i think you just need to fax the letter with that sheet and you should be good. i know that my letters were done the same day they were faxed (including the one from my prof who was flaking...although it was a month later than i requested).

Whoever said IUB was the best school in Indiana (that is OBVIOUSLY Notre Dame)? 

I personally said Notre Dame is the only 'elite' university in the state (coming out of HS I got into both IU and Purdue, didn't even apply to ND as my numbers weren't good enough).  I just made exception to Indiana being called a community college.  Purdue isn't ahead far enough in the rankings or by incoming testing scores to act like it is a far superior school.

Indiana is just a frat school?  I was under the impression that Purdue's Greek system is just as large (haven't seen numbers, but heard that from my Purdue friends).

It's bigger at Purdue. However, the school is also bigger. That said, it still isn't a prominent feaure of campus life at Purdue.

If Purdue is this so elite why isn't it even ranked in the top 50 universities?  Why are their SAT scores the SAME as Indiana's?

Indiana is more of a liberal arts school than a heavy science school (although Indiana, not Purdue, has the medical school).  You know there are other majors than engineering right?

I hate to tell you this, but Purdue is far from an elite school.  I am sorry but an average incoming SAT score of 1145 is not 'elite'.  Obviously at the same time I am saying Indiana is far from an elite school because our average incoming SAT is only 1146.  Again, that is far from elite.  The SAT numbers alone should tell you there is very little difference between the two universities.  But somehow Purdue is 'elite'?

As far as engineering goes Purdue isn't even the best in the state, that honor goes to Rose-Hulman.  The ONLY elite school in the state is Notre Dame.

From a personal standpoint, the only two undergraduate schools I applied to were Indiana and Purdue, and I was accepted to both.  The main reason I chose Indiana is the fact that I wanted to major in accounting and finance, and Indiana's undergraduate business program is FAR superior to Purdue's school of management.  Also, the environment at Indiana is much better in my mind.

1145-1146 SAT scores, but yet one school is superior?  Neither school is even a top 50 school (I personally think only the top 25 or so schools are 'elite')

ok. you have no cred. rose doesn't hold a candle to purdue. rose is a wannabe. and it's not about entering student test scores. it's about the program rankings. i really don't care what a kid accomplished in high school.

notre dame?

I can honestly say that UIUC (and Purdue) ahve the ugliest campuses I have ever seen.  The campuses and environments are TERRIBLE.  With that said, UIUC is a good school and has smart students.  I am still considering it for the class of 11, but the campus is TERRIBLE.

So, if Indiana is a community college, what does that make Purdue?  Purdue is a good school, but to act like it is an elite school is RIDICULOUS.  From the Indianapolis Star: 

"Indianapolis Star, Aug. 31 -- Purdue University admitted fewer students this year, an incoming class that scored higher SAT scores than its freshmen last year. The university didn't see the same dramatic increase in caliber of its freshmen that Indiana University did this week but said it was nonetheless pleased with the overall upward trend. The average SAT score of incoming freshmen at Purdue increased by three points to 1,145 on math and reading, a respectable gain eclipsed by IU's 25-point leap to 1,146 this year. Both schools reported a record-high number of applications and higher rate of rejection as a result."
the uiuc campus is hideous. but i will take any comment about purdue from an indiana student with a grain of salt. oh, and IU is pretty much a community college."

Indiana actually announced their numbers a day before Purdue, so it wasn't a case of funny math. 

You know for a FACT, that the Purdue campus doesn't come close to the Indiana campus.  I made my statement because the Purdue campus is pretty similar to the Illinois campus (though I must admit the Illinois campus is worse).  I respect Purdue as an institution, and think the two schools are very compatible.  The two school strengths are in opposite subject matters.  Purdue people like to think they are an elite public university and that is FAR from the case.

actually, i can't stand IU's campus. it's not functional at all. granted, i think UI's is one of the biggest eyesores in the big ten. they have major roads everywhere, and are so spread out that you might as well drive to class. oh, and if the wind is blowing the wrong way.....the place smells like a toilet. IU's campus isnt' the gorgeous campus IU students make it out to be. it's ok. but nothing great.
