Choosing the Right Law School / Re: WUSTLplacement in the pacific region
« on: January 31, 2008, 09:40:18 PM »
I'm actually hoping to end up in the Seattle area. I grew up there and that is where my family lives. Hopefully that will help if I end up in St. Louis for a few years.

I think it's primarily due to the PR the school has received because of the rise in rank.

Have you seen much change in the perception of the school during your time there?

I've heard from WashU but not from Emory yet. I applied at Emory in September.

Making the wait even worse is the fact that I am one of the few people on LSN that has not received any scholarship info from WashU. GAH!

I feel your pain.

This link will give you an idea of what firms do OCI at WUSTL as well as the class rank cutoffs. There aren't too many firms from the PNW, but I suspect that you could do some of your own legwork and get a decent job there.

I realize it's still rather early in the cycle and that this is a rather large-ish list still. But having not seen many of these schools, I'm looking for reasons why one might be better than any other, esp. in terms of job prospects nationally. I don't know where I'll end up practicing, and I want flexibility. All are somewhat regional I know, but any ideas to which is best?

I was poking around the WUSTL website and I found this link, which might give you some insight into how national the school is:

The awesome thing about this is that it shows you class rank cutoffs for OCI. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find similar information on any of the other websites.

I'm at decision, too. No email.

Blahhh, good to see you went to decision. Everyone who went to decision seems to have some good numbers (maybe borderline but still good), so I would be surprised if all of us got dinged.

At least that's what I tell myself...

Got it  :(

Don't know what to do.  They already have a Why Michigan, a GPA addendum, and 4 LORs.  I want to send something but I don't know what else to tell them.

Send another one of their optional essays. That is, if you want to write another essay.

Complete since October and no email.

Same. Ugh I hate this process.

I was hoping for my fifth deferral in a row.

Funny thing is that I just sent Michigan another LOR this morning. Hopefully it gets there before they send my rejection, so I can at least get my 41 cents worth.

finally decision. i won't get my mail until mid jan.
but ain't many 3.3 indexes getting in =(

question, though:

does "Decision" refer to acceptances and denials? or does it include waitlists/deferrals as well?

i guess deferral > reject, in a practical sense (maybe not)

but my heart just wants to know. this is too draining.

Mine went to decision and I was deferred. Decision could mean anything.
