Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Schools pay to fly out?

Wow...I completely forgot that I withdrew. I never sent in the financial aid forms so I knew I wouldnt get any aid and withdrew. UCLA is still a possibility though. I had't thought about visiting, but if a school would be willing to fly me out I would go to see how much I like the school.

I don't know about USC or UCLA, but I was curious about something...

On your LSN account you said that you withdrew from USC?

Choosing the Right Law School / Schools pay to fly out?
« on: March 02, 2005, 09:05:38 PM »
Does anyone know how willing schools are to pay for admitted students to fly out? I'm considering visiting USC and UCLA, but I live on the East coast and can't afford to  pay to fly out but if a school paid for it, I would be willing to visit to see how interested I am in the schools? Anyone know how common this is or if schools are willing to do this?

Threads like this pop up every f-ing week. Other applicants withdrawing won't help your chances of admission to a school. At best it might help you hear slightly earlier but in the end that shouldn't matter if you really want to attend.

I doubt I'll attend the admitted students day. I live in PA so it would be a big inconveneience and I can't imagine choosing it over Duke or Cornell. I'm going to attend the days at Duke and Cornell (the March 11th one) unless I am lucky enough to get into Penn or Harvard, both of which I'm pretty sure I would choose over Duke/Cornell.

(p.s.- nice homestar pic, although I'm a StrongBad man myself)

I don't think so but I'm not positive. I don't remember getting anything but maybe I'm just forgetting. It took them forever just to request my report and I had been wondering what was taking them so long to render a decision, whatever that would be, so I don't know how together their admissions office is.

AMB22 on LSN. Snail mail to PA.

Did UCLA notify you that you were complete?

Why the need for two more posts and the HTH? I just wanted to point out that withdrawals won't help in as straightforward a way as possible.

At best, some withdrawals will possibly help you hear slightly earlier. It won't increase your chances of admissions.

Numbers? LSN?

I was deferred in mid december at Penn and was accepted earlier this week!   ;D
Good luck!!

Yeah....I don't think you need to worry where Yale is going to be ranked next issue. Something tells me its still going to be ranked pretty high.

sorry, i got distracted by talk of beer and mailing dates and the use of LSAT scores to comment on the quality of posts. 

take 2: thanks for getting that info!  it's not a factor in my decision anymore (i mean, it is in general, but next year's won't change my mind), but i'll still be at the newsstand on april 11 just to see what happened.  i've bought the magazine for the last three years running, and i might do so one last night, esp if there is interesting movement.

wow, i'm such a dork.   :-[

edit: but not as much as big tex.  "a delta of 10 USNWR slots"?  you seriously outed yourself (not that you hadn't already in a more literal and open fashion) as a math/science geek.  HTH.   :D
