Choosing the Right Law School / Re: ED Hypothetical
« on: October 24, 2004, 11:08:47 PM »
Of course it would defy the whole point of ED - but it's a hypothetical situation :)

What if you applied ED somewhere, then applied somewhere else, got in both, and felt like you wanted to change your mind? That could happen, and if it does, I am just wondering what precedents there are - could you call and speak with the dean at the ED school? Would they hear it? What if you decide not to go to law school altogether, or defer on the other one? Just thining here - anybody else have thoughts?

Choosing the Right Law School / ED Hypothetical
« on: October 24, 2004, 08:42:37 PM »
Let's say you applied and were admitted somewhere ED, then shortly after were accepted to another school (regular admissions). Is there ANY possibility that you could decide to attend the other school? Has anyone heard of this happening before? Just curious...

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Critique of my Application Outlook?

GULC is my top choice - definitely. At the same time, if I got into NYU I would rather go there, but I figured since it is SUCH a long shot with my LSAT score, I would rather maximize my chances at GULC by applying ED. Are you thinking that I mis-judged, or that ED is no better than EA? Or just making sure I knew what I was doing?

Thanks for your respones :)

Choosing the Right Law School / Critique of my Application Outlook?
« on: October 24, 2004, 11:22:32 AM »
Hi. I've been reading for awhile, and contrary to some, think this board is a neat opportunity to hear (subjective) appraisals of applications and chances. So, would anyone mind sharing their thoughts on my shots? In a nutshell, I have:

#s: 3.84 (undergrad-Rochester), 3.66(masters-Harvard) 165 LSAT (153 in 2000 test, app. includes explanatory note)

Exp: 2 years Peace Corps, 2 years WE in international develop.

LORs and PS: I think they're strong, but who knows?

I am shooting high and hoping I land one of:

Georgetown (Early Decision)
NYU
UPenn
Michigan
Northwestern
Cornell
Berkeley
BC
American

Thoughts? I think it's safe to assume that the 153 score will not be counted, from what I know of these schools, but if you feel otherwise, please share :)
