A heart-felt thank you card should be sufficient.

Law School Admissions / Re: I hate LSAC
« on: October 05, 2004, 01:48:53 PM »
I received notification from one of my undergrad schools of when they sent my transcript.  According to the website, LSAC still hasn't received my transcript over a week later.  It shouldn't take more than 2-3 days for mail to go from Upstate NY to PA! 

Makes me wonder how often LSAC really updates their website.  Or maybe my transcript is lost under a couple tons of incoming mail?

That's me to a T!  Here's my roster so far, but a few may get knocked off when I get my LSAT and LSAC GPA (4 colleges, so I'm not sure what it will be).

Safeties:
Catholic (USN 82)
Hofstra  (USN 89)
Hamline (T4)
SUNY Buffalo (USN 82)
St. Louis U. (not WUSTL)
Albany

Possible:
NorthEastern (USN 77)
Chicago-Kent    (USN63)
OSU (USN 42)
U. Missouri   (USN 63)
Cardozo

Reaches:
UI-UC (USN 27)
U.Wisc (USN 31)
American (USN 56) - applying for full-time but would probably take part-time if offered
Washington & Lee
George Washington (part-time)

I cut and pasted this roster and am too lazy to remove the ranking info.

158-162.  My goal is to break 160.  If I get a 157 or lower, will it be too late to sign up for December?

Ok, you don't want to live in DC...where do you plan on working with a JD from Maryland?

Why is DC the only option with a JD from Maryland?

how is cornell partially public?

i fixed my typo. and i got the partially public thing from someone else on this board, who got it from xoxo. i guess their agriculture school or something minor like that receives public funding. therefore, it's a third tier toilet. ;)

3 of the 7 schools (Agriculture & Life Sciences, Human Ecology and Industrial/Labor Relations) are partially state-funded, so in-state residents get a significant discount (about half maybe?) on tuition if they're in one of those schools. 

I wouldn't call Ag "minor" since it's a very large, renowned program and was one of the first schools formed at Cornell well before the Ivy League was founded.

I settled in NY after graduation...think I should try to get a refund after paying out-of-state tuition?

Hey, I graduated from one of these schools, so I'll be the first to say that they're great.  

However, the Ivy League was formed in the 1940's and hasn't changed since then.  That's why I refer to it as antiquated.  Also, because the Ivy League does refer to a defined athletic organization, no...the designation has nothing to do with current academics. It's not as if a school like Northwestern or Stanford would automically become Ivy League if it moved ahead of all of these schools in academic rankings.

antiquated? maybe. has nothing to do with the current quality of academics? i wouldn't go that far. plus, they are some of the highest endowed universities in the country. (http://www.nacubo.org/documents/research/FY03InstitutionListingForPress.pdf)

...because there will never be other Ivy League schools besides the original 8 that Bisquick listed.  Well actually, I guess a school could be invited to join the Ivy League by the other 8, but somehow I think that pigs would fly before that happened.  Here's a good explanation behind the evolution of the Ivy League, with a link to the official webpage:

I hate the way the term "Ivy League" is thrown around like it's the be-all-end-all.  It's just an outdated athletic association that has nothing to do with the current quality of academics at these schools.
