If you are interested in Environmental Law, this is from U.V.A.

For all of us still waiting and living vicariously through this thread, keep the good news coming!  It gives us hope!

What bothers me about this is how easy it would be to screw someone over.

For example, I am not http://www.lawschoolnumbers.com/display.php?user=backosteel but I could easily pretend to be this person. How would that impact his admission chances?

Say I was applying to law school and had an estranged half-sister whose madz stalker skillsz allowed her to find my law school numbers profile. She could wreck my chances at law school and I could end up in a TTT. I can't imagine what a vindictive classmate at a hypercompetitive school might do.

Wow, good points.  And look at what the posters at XOXO did to those girls applying to Yale..

I'm not going to defend xoxo (or the stupid actions of its members), but by now - both parties are in the wrong.

yes, I'm a noob.  what happened at XOXO?

Considering that I already have student loan debt, I'm really trying to minimize any additional debt I take on for law school.  If you don't really have any student loan or credit card debt, then it's not as big a deal.  You're still going to need to take out loans to cover the rest of tuition and living expenses, but the scholarship sounds like it would basically halve your law school debt.  The only reason that I would suggest considering Cornell over BU would be if they had a specific program or area of concentration which interests you.  The rankings aren't a huge factor in my decision-making, so I don't put much stock in those.  It looks like you're talking about a difference between #13 and #20.  BU is still t25, and it sounds like they are being very generous.  Freak makes a good point though; you might want to find out what GPA you need in order to retain the scholarship and also what percentage of students lose their scholarships each year.  If you're leaning toward Cornell and you don't think you'll be able to meet the requirements to keep your scholarship for 2L and 3L, then maybe follow your heart?  I know that sounds corny.

is it sad that all I could think was "actually, I kind of liked the logic games . . . . " ?  although not the fact that they were timed, which really ruined my enjoyment.

How is this news? Thats why we all fudge the numbers we post.

Whew!  That makes me feel much better; I was starting to develop an extreme inferiority complex!    ;)

I'm pretty curious as to who sent you that e-mail.  Was it anonymous?  Did it come from a particular law school?  From posts I've seen (I guess this is directed more toward all the Adcomms stalking the boards), most posters either hope or assume that people from admissions check the boards.  I've seen a number of shout-outs (and some out-and-out begging) to various schools.
