Choosing the Right Law School / Re: UVA

I bet UVA is going to do a mass mailing on the 17th.  They are probably just getting everyone ready and then going to send out all of the letters together so that there won't be as much speculation.  You saw what happened when Georgetown had a rolling admissions policy...people were freaking out because they hadn't heard yet...did that mean that they were surely not getting in or surely getting in.  I think UVA is a little more anal about being all around the same time frame.  But I am definitely pacing back and forth waiting for my rejection ;)

Awesome...thanks for the info.  I'm sure I probably read that somewhere, but I always forget these things.  I'm hoping maybe they will wait more than a day to reject me.  Maybe they'll see something in my app packet that will just totally jump out at them.  They'll be, this chick is so cool...we have to have her at our school even though her numbers suck...

I've heard people dress casual unless they have something to do.  (i.e. interview, mock trial, etc.)  But I don't really know that for sure, that is just what I had heard.

Does UVA give any sort of preference to in-state applicants?

That would be great, since I'm in-state...(and yes, I know my numbers suck and I'm not going to get in there one needs to point that out...I know)

My last post should say..."that I WENT to the best school I possibly could"

...see I knew I was retarded...proofreading, who needs it?

And who's going to be laughing when by some random fluke of nature one of us gets into a super reach?  Then it would be so worth it.  And if that doesn't happen (which it probably won't) then I'll know that I won't to the best school I possibly could.

Does anyone else feel really retarded for applying to entirely too many schools that are out of their reach?  I mean, I don't really care because I do just want to know if by some freak chance I could get in somewhere out of my range...but I feel a little silly looking at everyone else's stats and comparing them to how mine so do not measure up.  Oh well.  Here's to the silly people.

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: Miami info?

Thanks for the feedback...I don't mind your bluntness.  I realize that I don't have much of a chance at most of the schools that I applied to, but I figured I wouldn't know if I didn't try.  I have no problem with going to Miami or Georgia State, I think I could get a good job with either of them.

I'm even leaning a bit more towards GS, simply because I already live in Atlanta.  But I am going to seriously consider all of the schools that I end up getting into (even if it's just GS and Miami).  Miami is a beautiful city and I know I could be happy there too.  If anyone else has more to say about Miami or Georgia State, I'd love to hear the feedback.
