Well Kyle, with that attitude, I am sure you will be a success as a lawyer because your clients will all admire and respect you.  NOT! :o

Man, I haven't been able to do the 'NOT!' in a while...nicely done ;)

Well, I am having a bad day at work, but aside from that, I guess I'm amazed so many people are so sensitive about this issue.  Either way, apologies to anyone who was irked by my thinking aloud.  I'll make sure to keep all dissenting thoughts to myself :)

Haha, apparently I'm a marked man.  A bitter midwestern frat boy marked man ;)

If your sensitive enough to get offended by my second thoughts about the school you have chosen, you better hope we're not in the same section.  I'm usually MUCH more offense and combative in person than when I can proofread my posts :)

Hrm, I could try the alternative fields, but I'm not really interested in that.  As far as BC, I won't complain too much b/c of the scholarship, and I am happy that they chose to look at the other aspects of my application instead of just writing me off due to my admittedly low LSAT.  Don't mistake me for being ungrateful, because I realize they could have given me no money.  The key point of the argument was that it wasn't a gift, I view it as a reward for what I earned.

However, I don't know why you made the comment about a high GPA at a state school.  State schools have nothing near the grade inflation of privates, and I'm positive that getting a high GPA in Computer Engineering or Math at a large state public is significantly harder than getting a 3.3 in some easy LAS major at a private.  State schools don't care if you get bad grades.  None of that 'look out for your own' stuff :(

Hrm, I guess teh main difference is that you are saying I should be thankful a school wanted me, whereas I view an admission as what I earned from my work.

I understand that as far as law school applicants go, I'm not at the top of any lists.  The comment about selling myself short at BC stems from the fact that I have a tough time not translating my qualifications as a computer engineering or economics graduate applicant to that of a law school applicant.  In the case of either of my majors, I have been accepted to graduate programs I feel are more what I was looking for.  BC is not in the same ranking area as those schools.

But, all this info is only if you actually care.  If you just want to harass me for getting down on BC, go right ahead :)

Same situation, BC vs. Duke waitlist.  However, BC gave me some money, which is making me go forward with plans to attend.

The real kicker is the financial aid lady, Jill Barnhart.  She has been curt with me every time I've spoken with her, and of the 10 or so times we've talked, she NEVER remembers me, not even when we have talked twice in the same day.
