Where should I go next fall? / Re: T3 & T4 Acceptances and Rejections 2008
« on: December 02, 2007, 08:53:51 PM »
In at Washburn and Tulsa.

I don't want to sound like a homer for Washburn, but...
If you hit above a 155, Washburn auto admits...go look at their stats.  Of course, it's in Topeka, but with in-state tuition by 2nd semester, if you want to do public service, I have to think it's the deal of the century.

Hell, my WIFE is a 2L and even she spends more time making fun of me than understanding my obsession.

Being Army, I only know about them, but Washburn and Texas Tech are run by former Army TJAGs, and there are several ex-JAGs who are profs. at TTU.

I did my PS on deployed time in Iraq.  Mentioned on resume with appropriate bullet points.  Had a JAG Colonel write me a LOR.  Here's the key... if you have VA disability rating, I mentioned my membership in the Disabled American Veterans.  That has to be the ultimate soft factor for military time.

I put "aide" as opposed to "aid" and I'm batting 100% so far.  I doubt there is a truly a zero-defect mentality...let it ride.

Law School Applications / Re: Is Anyone Else Giving Up on NU?
« on: December 01, 2007, 10:06:00 AM »
If older kids are going to intimidate you, then you're going to have a problem at any law school you go to, not just NU. At most of the top schools, more than two-thirds of the class does not come straight from undergrad.

anyone else in the same skiff, sailing toward some unknown destination, borne back ceaselessly into the wind?

I'm not quite sure how, but you've already been admitted to two of the top schools in the country. Stop being so whiny. 

Dear God, thank you for writing that last sentence.  I have enough self-awareness to acknowledge how "angsty" and paranoiac inducing this process is, but you have to step back and appreciate some things every so often.  I don't know if you make OPs like this to get your rocks off or what, but you have got to get a grip on reality... You already have ins at T14s, who gives a hoot if you sweep.  And if you think older kids will intimidate you, what are you going to do in moot court when you run up against veterans or people who've already been negotiating business deals for years?  You better get yourself in check, because while you'll get accepted at schools, with your attitude you'll never get a job to pay off the debts.  I'm sorry to be so mean on a Saturday morning, but alas.

I received that Widener email too.  Here is what got me... considering they didn't bcc everyone, doesn't that violate some sort of privacy laws with regards to applications?  Would applicant status be treated like grades or financial aid info?

Just curious...

At some schools, students are part of the admissions committee, so I wouldn't think it is violating any privacy rules.

I think you misunderstood my question.  If the students are on the admissions committee then obviously they would have reason to have access to applicant's information.  It would seem though that they would have a duty to keep that information private or to follow whatever safeguards the law school has in place.  To that end, sending out the email addresses of about 100 applicants to other applicants would seem to be a doubleplusungood thing to do.

This is all just a fantastic prelaw mental exercise for us to obsess about while we twiddle our thumbs over the next weeks.

I did find it odd how they did that. (and the fact that they let us know that we're complete in the middle of an email from one of their students)  It doesn't bother me any, though. 
I concur, about not being bothered.  It was just very unlike any of the other schools to which I've applied.

Speaking of which, COMPLETE at Colorado.
