I join you in the denial.  Expected, though still sad :(

It seems as though there were a lot of changes in the rankings that were unexpected by those on this board.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Can anyone top my 8 waitlists?

I am reminded of an old saying often when reading posts on this board:

"If you dont have anything nice (I am substituting "constructive", since this is an advice board) to say, dont say anything at all."

Its really not hard.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: In at UF spring start

It seems as though most of the UF admits going out right now are for the spring.  Have they filled the fall class and are now moving to spring or do you think that they are still admitting for both classes?

I actually would prefer being admitted in the spring.  Sadly, I will be expecting a rejection letter.  Those of you that have been admitted for the spring class would you mind sharing your numbers and your residency status?

I would certainly like to go if only they would take me...or at least reject me...something :(.  Anxiously waiting :)


Your sense of humor is refreshing.  Having you in class would certainly be entertaining.  You would certaily keep all of us grounded (or at least amused)

General Off-Topic Board / new perspective
« on: March 21, 2005, 10:55:28 AM »
Recently, law school has become the issue that takes up most of my focus, as it appears to for many people on this board.  I have been disapointed that I have yet to be accepted anywhere, feeling as though I had hit a dead end.  I was convinced that if I didnt go to a top school I would be unlikely to "get ahead."

Sunday, however, I was given a reality check.

I work as a server.  Sunday morning an older couple came in for dinner and was seated in my section.  They had a very "interesting" appearance.  I instantly (shamefully) dreaded taking this table.  In the first five minutes of speaking with these people, however, I came to realize that this couple was illiterate.  As a solution I retrieved training photographs of our menu items from the kitchen (where they are used to train the non-english speaking staff).  They were, although uneducated, extremely grateful and extraordinarily polite. 

This experience was a reality check.  Throughout this process, I had become so focused on getting in to the best school possible and upon not being accepted anywhere had become disillusioned.  This experience made me realize that I had already had the opportunity to do something that many people have not, get a college degree at all.  This, hopefully, with help keep this whole process in perspective in the future (at least for me).

Congratulations on your acceptance.  If we didnt get an admitted students email, at this late in the cycle, do you think its prob safe to assume we will be getting rejection letters? (I hope not :()
