Baylor was actually a free application so perhaps they feel some sort of entitlement!

No, I definitely do not want to go to Baylor given that SMU accepted me but I did spend half a day doing the Baylor application and a response would be nice.  You got WL at SMU?

I have basically ruled out going to Baylor given that my application has been in review since October but I think that I am deserving of an answer, any answer, in a seemingly prompt manner.  I have not been waitlisted or deferred and everytime I call the admissions office, they tell me that my file is still undergoing review...what the hell??

Check out Power Properties...they are unique, affordable lofts and apartments close to SMU in near east Dallas.

Bribery and/or nepotism goes a long way in getting acceptance to an Ivy for undergrad.

Since Obama began lecturing at the school, U of C's quality has surely plummeted. 

He seems like a pretty intelligent guy, even if one doesn't agree with his politics...



I'm just being facetious  ;D

I'm considering becoming an international trade specialist.  It requires a solid grasp of trade law and economics.  In a supervisory level, one could expect to make low six figures for the government.  In the private sector, the sky is the limit with regards to pay.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Emory/SMU

No offense, but with your stats how did you get into Emory/SMU? You're way below the 25% LSAT of both schools and have a decent GPA, yet you're not a URM. You should be happy you got in to these schools :)

Go to Emory and do all you can to place well.

 If law school admissions was ALL about numbers and quotas, a computer could replace admissions committees. 

I'm not suggesting otherwise. However, SMU claims their median GPA was a 164 LSAT and a 3.74 GPA for their 2007 class. Emory's stats (at least for LSAT) are even better. You and the OP are significantly below both of these figures.

I'm not hating (though, admittedly I am a bit bitter of SMU waitlisting me), just surprised is all, actually. Congrats on the acceptances.

 

Appreciate the congrats...median GPAs and LSATs are misleading though.  50% above and 50% below (where below really doesn't matter, especially after the 25% percentile cut-off that they report).  Average GPA and LSAT are more indicative but then again, you can stack a class with a few 170+/2.8 or sub 155/4.0 people and the figures are not terribly skewed.
