thanks saradsun and jdxf, and everyone else for commiserating. im doing better today, but hoping that the stanford rejection doesn't make its way into my mailbox today. that would probably stifle the recovery process...
this may sound silly, but i think one of the hardest part of being rejected is telling people. i feel like there's a group of people who don't really understand the law school admission processthink since i'm "smart" that i would obviously get into harvard, yale, etc. i really don't look forward to explaining to those people that i've been rejected. sigh.
this thread makes me so sad. i just got a harvard and yale rejection in one day, one mail one email. that meant i got rejected at work, and then rejected when i went home. have to be honest, that was pretty harsh, even with realistic expectations.

I am here to say that all the "no why penn is the kiss of death" stuff is not true. I did not send one (though I did send another optional essay) and got accepted this week.
I also disregarded other common LSD advice and send a LOCI BEFORE I heard back from them, which "updated my resume" and had a why penn-esque section. I would advise you send one of those now, and maybe ONE additional recommender who can corroborate the reasons you list penn as a top choice. Anything more than that is excessive in my opinion.
