Reminds me of buying bluebooks or scantrons before exams.  Kind of like buying your own noose on the way to your execution.

I'm relaxed.  Oops...


i did not mean to insult you.. seriously...  just relax :)

Laura- chill out...  when someone asks a questions as you did, people here tend to go with what happens with the majority of people.  Generally, schools aren't going to pay to fly someone out unless they're highly recruiting you.  Even then, it probably doesn't happen oftenwith law schools because of the sheer number of applicants. 

Thanks.  All I wanted was for someone to either answer my question or not say anything (not insult me as Lord Bartha did).  I don't think I was asking a lot.

i did not say anything about #s either.


sorry, i did not realize that you were among the ranks of the elite superstar.  maybe some schools will fly you out...

Ugh.  I didn't say that.  I didn't say or imply my numbers were anything. 

Looks like you just realized that you don't know what you're talking about and now you feel like you have to make some snide comment as to my numbers to make yourself feel better.  What a lameass.

Remind me to start quoting you so that you don't go changing your posts on me.

I think they probably are, but I did not imply that in my previous post.

So, no matter your numbers or your personal info, no schools will pay to fly you out for a visit?


i don't think i said that...

You said "no, you are going to have to pick up the tab".  What do you mean by this?  That no matter your numbers, Georgetown won't fly you out?  Or are you assuming that my numbers are low?

I sent rolls of quarters.  Shipping was a bit expensive, but I knew for sure they were getting the right amount.

Personal Statement / Re: Yale 250 Word Essay
« on: November 08, 2004, 08:32:20 PM »
I heard that stuff about "intellectual essays" on this board.  I think it came from one comment a Yale admissions person supposedly made during an online chat - not quite a consensus.  None of the people I know at YLS, and none of the people they know there wrote an intellectual essay.  They wrote quirky, stand-out, personal stories like I described above.  You can do whatever you want, but based on my personal experience, I don't think people come off well when they're trying to write "intellectually."

2 things:

1.  If your PS is based around a quirky personal story (even with serious undertones), I think writing an intellectual essay would be appropriate, don't you?

2.  I'd be very willing to bet that Helen's getting into Yale.
