I will die from depression when I'm at BC and the sun sets at like 3:30p during the winter.

Law School Applications / Re: So, what were the WORST mistakes you made in the application process...« on: April 24, 2008, 05:21:02 PM »
Applying to schools in Chicago so I could be with my SO...who I broke up with in January.
another mistake: A HUGE retarded typo on my DS. Which I could've sworn proofreading 1,000 times. It was too personal to have a random person proofread it for me...
Well I obviously lost interest if I can't even find the form . . .
How can you not particularly like the West Coast? Where are you from?
Mostly logistical questions...not any questions along the lines of how likely am I to get off the waitlist. I know they know I really want to get off the waitlist, so I'm not going to be overtly annoying about it. I'll call them back up in the future just to check if they received my package.
You sent a video DVD?
It's not my DVD, it's a college publication DVD that I was featured in...it's not like I filmed myself begging to get in, lol. It's a short DVD and it comes inside a brochure for prospective students. Since I'm featured in it, I thought I'd show them a little bit more about me and what I've done during ugrad.
These phone calls were basically me thanking them for being waitlisted and asking a few questions. I sounded pathetic because apparently UCLA's law school is technically called UCLA School of Law, which I always say backwards as UCLA Law School.
Yeah...they say return it within 3 week of its date...obviously to decipher between who really has continued interest and who doesn't.
Well my SO just was the first person off the Vandy WL (I'm totally bragging because I'm so proud... I apologize )
1. I would fly to LA if it weren't TOTALLY unrealistic to do in the spur of the moment.
2. I sent add'l rec, and a snail mail package with a letter, brochure and DVD that my undergrad college featured me (and my dad) in to speak to prospective students about my college experience--PM me if you want to see the video online.
3. I sent an e-mail and several phone calls, and several more will follow...
Curious why you just quoted that w/o responding.
oh yeah, and today, my professor just wrote me a kick ass waitlist supplemental recommendation and I hope it helps!
Yeah, you do. If my voice had any power to it I'd write you the best LOR.
Whether they take him off the waitlist or reject him.Was it over 3 weeks ago that you were WL'ed?
