Law School Applications / Re: REALLY weird e-mail from Florida Coastal

Just go to the bottom of the email and click on the "To unsubscribe, click here "

I did clicked that link and never had a second email; though I did consider sending an email thanking him for the offer.  That's pretty decent cash if you're running low or scared of debt.

I just started running 5K runs on weekends.  It's the only outdoor running I do; the rest is indoors on a cybex.  Try a couple of those even if you haven't started running much.  You'll get a feel for where you are.

Do you notice that Vandy and other schools you are following are more lenient this year?

I didn't compare November/December acceptances for 06 vs. 07 on Vandy.

what's the rule?

Law School Applications / Acceptance trends: December 06 vs. December 07
« on: December 09, 2007, 02:53:28 PM »
Anyone else notice that at this time last year the top 25 schools were a bit more stingy on what LSAT scores they were accepting?  Take HLS for example, the LSAT scores of the approximately 55 accepted applicants this year go a few points lower than the 55 people accepted last year at this time, 12/9/06.

Same thing for Minnesota and Iowa and some of the other schools that admit students early in the process.  Iowa and Minnesota don't have a lot of admitted students at this point, but there are a few that would not have been accepted until Feburary, based on last year's cycle.  Anyone notice a similar trend for other schools?

I've already been accepted to one school that I assumed would not get back to me for at least a couple of months b/c of where I fit on their index.

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: Is UW-Madison a "public ivy"

UW has a bunch of fortune 500 CEOs...does that stat matter any more than ibanks?  None of it matters much.  UI and UW are about the same.  They're both thought of as solid schools across the country.

Madison has recognition nationally because of radical protest wackos 40 years ago.  I live in the Southwest and have had contractors refer to it as the Berkley of the Midwest based on their knowledge of the nutjobs that used to make noise.

It all means nothing once you get a job.  Employers care about one thing, regardless of the industry, that you produce quality deliverables and manage your resources well.

I went to UW.  It's a solid school and you can find some top notch programs, but I don't see the point in trying to attach the name Ivy.

It's a great Big10 school, behind Northwestern and Michigan.....but ahead of Michy St. and Purdue if you look at the schools overall.  There are plenty of majors at UW that stack up nationally and there are enough slacker programs that the goof balls can cruise through.  Wouldn't call it Ivy.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: UIUC ... what do you think?

when did the status checker say they had reached a decision?  says 'letter mailed' today.

for the school....they place a high percent in chicago with starting salaries around 125K.  that's a pretty solid salary if that is part of your decision making process.  i've only been to the campus one time; it was a 9.9/10 if i had to rate it.  nice and quiet, no traffic, looked like a nice place to study for a few years.

Last year the bar passage rate for IL schools taking IL bar went....1. Chicago, 2. Northwestertn, 3. Chicago-Kent, 4. UIUC.    I don't remember the percents.

Has anyone been rejected at IL yet?  I assume it's best to hear early.  No?

Looking at LSN, very few schools have sent out rejections.
