What are your stats... if you don't mind me asking?

Our numbers are very close.  Do you have any other significant soft factors (such as WE)?

I've been out of school since 2000.  I went to film school, so I've spent the time since trying to set up projects and such.  While this is certainly "work"... it's not the sort of thing that can really be explained on a resume.  Anyway, I found this to be pretty polarizing.  Schools either seem to dig it, or they don't get it and assume it means I've been on the couch watching Oprah for four years.

Plain 'ole little envelope.  I'd be bummed, but at least there's some satisfaction in being able to continue rooting against the Irish.   ;)

LSAT: 162, LSDAS GPA: 3.57

My girlfriend told me about it.  Some character asks another character where she went to Law School, and upon hearing "Pepperdine" the first character makes a crack about how she probably doesn't know law/rule blah blah.

How's THAT for an exciting retelling!?

Congrats.  While East Lansing is a little dull when you're over 19... MSU is a beautiful campus.

Woooooooo!  Welcome to the club.  To address your question, Wisconsin people end up in the upper midwest.  A few go to Chicago.... but I hear that lots of them stay in Wisconsin.  It's that whole "Wisconsin-graduates don't need to take the bar in WI" thing.

Yep, small envelope, and in fact, I think it was the same as the original defer envelope...

You got in off the deferred list?  That's good to know.  I got deferred too, and was wondering when they'd start sending out the decisions.

Got the rejection letter yesterday. Not very surprised with a 162, but had a personal statement that I thought was going to make the difference. Interestingly enough, there was a short hand-written note stating how much they admired in my application. I wonder how many people got that line???

That would annoy me to no end.  "If you admired it so much... why didn't you admit me?!"

So, I'm currently reading Law School Confidential and I've just gotten to the part in which he mentions that there are schools that have notoriously bad atmospheres and are home to all the book-hiding nonsense that everybody always hears about.

Anyway, while I'm sure much of this is blown out of proportion... does anybody know of any schools that are supposed to be pretty cut throat?  I figured we could compile a list of them here, with anecdotes and whatnot.

EDIT: And yes...I KNOW there are some similar threads... but they all seemed to consist of "My cousin's dad's brother dated this chick who once drove by Hastings on a Friday and..." sorts of stuff.  I'm looking for specific examples.   :)
