Umm, just read the subject of the thread. :)

I only know of Columbia (and it's a weak one), G'town, and UVA. Who else is there? Gotta obsess some more.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / In at BYU
« on: December 09, 2004, 12:56:06 PM »
Highly doubt I'll be matriculating, but here's the email.  Feels good either way!

Dear Chris,

Congratulations!  On behalf of the Law School administration and faculty, it is our privilege to invite you to become a member of the 2005-2006 entering class of the J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University. Although the vast majority of our decisions will be made in January and February of 2005, you are one of a select few that the Faculty Committee on Admissions has determined merits this early offer of admission. In reaching this decision, the committee wishes to commend you for your academic excellence and preparation. An official letter of acceptance will be sent to you shortly.

We extend our warmest wishes for your holiday season and look forward to our continued association with you.

Choosing the Right Law School / Cornell Fee Waiver--Should I apply?
« on: December 04, 2004, 02:45:18 PM »
Okay, so I just BARELY got a fee waiver in the mail from Cornell. I've talked to a friend from New Jersey who says Ithaca is small, frigid, and 2-3 hours from NYC. What do you guys know about Cornell? Is it worth the $12 to do an LSDAS report and fill out the app if it really seems like the area is low on the list?

Harvard's app says to fit your PS into two pages, double-spaced.  Mine's 1.5 spaced and fits perfectly into exactly two pages. I really don't want to overhaul it. Should I just leave it be and send it? Play with the margins?

Law School Admissions / Harvard LOR?
« on: December 02, 2004, 10:05:28 PM »
Filling out the Harvard app just for kicks and giggles and it makes no mention of doing LOR's via LSAC instead of with their form. I'm assuming the form isn't required if being done via LSAC?

27 took like three months after I completed all the requirements, though. Gratis (the parent company) is NOT dependable. But it's coming. Yes!

Law School Admissions / GMU PS limit--500 words?? WT...Freak?
« on: December 02, 2004, 07:54:48 PM »
So, did anyone else applying to George Mason (I know, everyone hates 'em) take their normal PS and knock it down to 500 words?  I just realized I sent 'em my standard one--925 words. I'm a 170/3.67 in CS and should theoretically be in anyway--and don't really feel like taking the time. Any thoughts?

General Off-Topic Board / How do you tell a gf/bf they have bad breath?

...without damaging both self-esteem and the relationship? Not to mention the increase in awkwardness comes action time.

Law School Admissions / Send third LOR directly or wait for friggin' LSAC?
« on: December 02, 2004, 11:34:52 AM »
So, all my apps are in. I've notified the schools not to consider my app complete until my third LOR comes in. Trouble is, it's taking FOR-EV-ER. My recommender is a prof at BYU Law School (Rhodes Scholar, Yale law grad, et al) but as such is way busy and is taking forever (grrr).  He prob won't be done for another week or two, and by then adcomms will already be convening.  Should I just have his letter sent to all the schools directly so as to not endure the excruciating LSAC processing wait period? What's everyone's take?
