I didn't get the letter either to confirm my interest. I wonder why, do they already know i'm interested?

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 / Re: Pllease help me with predictions

Thanks Midijeep... unfortunately just got my Ding from GMU Friday, guess 165 wasn't the magic number for me =(. Although a Cornell acceptance would be great, another 3 years in Ithaca isn't the best prospect I could imagine. I'm really looking for a change of environment (and weather!).

Denials / Re: George Mason...Right on Schedule
« on: February 20, 2005, 08:03:05 PM »
I really wish there was meaningful updated data on law school admission statistics.

George Mason is the perfect example in the ABA Approved law school book I have (2004 Edition). George Mason is listed as having the following stats:

3.50 - 3.74 and 160-164: 83/102 admitted.

Meaning that in total only 19 people were rejected with these statistics during the entire admissions cycle. However on law school numbers.com already the stats are 6/10 for admitted for this year. If this sample holds thats over a 20% increase in selectivity! People are getting into Emory and Fordham before G-Mason, is something wrong here?

No the average is 161, 156-166 was the split.

Law School Applications / Pllease help me with predictions

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.

Dinged by The Mace as well. Guess they don't like splits- those LSAT whores.

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?
