Wait List / Waitlist Statistics
« on: February 26, 2005, 02:33:38 PM »
Is there anyway to find out which schools actively use their waitlists or not? I've read mixed things. For example i've heard that Northeastern took no one off their list last year and elsewhere that Cardozo admits a large portion from their WL. Is there anywhere to see those stats? I'm curious because I want to get a feeling for how false my hope is in getting in off the waitlist from BC and Cardozo. Any thoughts?

Acceptances / Does Presidents Day = No Mail?
« on: February 21, 2005, 03:51:05 AM »
I suspect that since its a nationally "observed" holliday the banks are closed, most government offices are closed, no mail delivery, and no trash pick-up. However I just wanted to find out for sure! As pathetic as it sounds I actually get excited each day at the prospect of new law school mail, I frantically rush to my mailbox at 3:00 like clockwork when my mail comes so having my excitment taken away tomorrow is not something I'm going to look forward to =(.

Law School Applications / Pllease help me with predictions
« on: February 19, 2005, 11:47:01 AM »
I'm starting to get worried, my huge LSAT split, I feel, has been the factor looming in the background and hurting substantially the strength of my applications. However I always had this feeling that even with the split, scoring a 166 with a 3.6 GPA from an Ivy would at least enable me to get into a top 30 school. This feeling seems to have been misguided. As the rejections, waitlist notifications and deferrals seem to be pouring in from the schools I thought I had competitive shots at: i.e. Cardozo, George Mason, Boston College, Fordham.

I'm curious, from experience, what you guys think my chances might be at getting into the remaining schools I'm still waiting to hear from. I'd love some predictions.

I'm hoping to compile a list of the schools that mail to current rather than permanent addresses when given both on the application so far.

Permanent Address
Seton Hall
Villanova
Fordham
Georgetown
Cardozo
Brooklyn


Current Address
U Conn
Boston College
Northeastern
Hofstra

Anyone have any schools they can add to either list?

Acceptances / What's Up with Villanova? - Mail problems??
« on: February 14, 2005, 06:27:56 PM »
My mother told me I recieved a card in the mail today at my home address asking me to RSVP to an admitted students event on March 5th however I'm still waiting for a decision on my application. Did they send these cards out to everyone or did my acceptance letter get lost in the mail? Anyone else have a similar experience?

According to rizz98's LSN profile Villanova has had some mailing trouble, apparently they sent his letter to a combination of his current and permanent address, I wonder if there was a glitch in the mail merge and this mistake affected more than one?

Acceptances / In at Seton Hall with $$$

Given my predisposition to land on waitlists and interim pending categories (whatever that means). I feel a need to provide extra material to these schools that will help push my application over the edge.

I recently made Dean's List (3.7 requirement) for the 4th semester in a row. I was wondering if it would be appropriate to send a photocopy of the certificate in to schools that are on the fence about my application.

I also have a 35 page research article that was submitted to the Journal of Law and Human Behavior, linking Cognitive Experiential Self Theory (a common theory in personality psychology) to Juror Decision Making in Criminal Trials. I was wondering if actually sending the manuscript in is a good idea. Its well written and impressive, however I doubt any Ad Comm is (1) going to have the time or drive to read through it and (2) will understand the nitty gritty of the research anyway. Part of me is saying just send it in, it has an impressive look and feel and even if they don't read it at least they will see what you have done. But another part of me is saying not to since its in a highly topic specific and 99% of the Ad Comms wont even read it considering they are inundated with paperwork already (contributing to that might even have a negative effect).

I'd really like some advice on both of the above.

Acceptances / Money at Northeastern
« on: February 09, 2005, 10:07:41 PM »
$8,500 Dean's Scholarship from Northeastern dated February 3rd. Awarded for three years contingent upon the recipient remaining in good academic standing and meeting all required financial obligations.

Brooklyn was leading out of my acceptances so far, however this makes things more complicated.

Anyone know the various amounts and titles of the scholarships that Northeastern offers?
