same here!!! they do say that we consume something like 1.5 times ~ 2 time more calories on the weekends. Drinking is a big no no when one's on a diet because they are nothing but empty calories and st8 get stored as fat cells in the body..

When I was losing weight last summer I had no social life for two months. I did lose 16 pounds over two months but my friends called me boring.  :(

i eat so well during the week, but weekends are the death of me... i always end up getting trashed and drunk eating, not to mention going out to eat with friends...

i can't freakin change my habits because it's so fun...  :-\

Law School Applications / Re: THE MAIL CALL THREAD
« on: May 17, 2006, 01:09:25 AM »
same thing with UCLA full ride offer.. the mail came 2 days after the scholarship accept/decline deadline.. this was back in early may.

-_-

how ya been lily? =)

Waitlist at Stanford.  But they e-mailed me and said that they were withdrawing my name because they hadn't heard a reply from the snail mail they sent.  Which I never received.

Helllooo, it's 2006.  If you want to make sure someone gets something, send it by e-mail -- especially if you're sending it out at the end of April when everyone's moving.

Law School Applications / Re: ADVICE to the next cycle of applicants
« on: April 29, 2006, 08:51:20 PM »
lsac. makes thing much more organized.

i used all three varieties. paper-apps, lsac apps, and school specific e-apps.

i had my personal reason of the paper-apps route. i do not recommend this.

specific e-apps has its advantages if you want them to be processed a little quicker (used gtown's & penn's to meet their EA deadline) but i can be wrong on this. so check.

MAKE SURE YOU APPLY EARLY!

MAKE SURE YOU DO THE DIRTY WORK(TRANSCRIPTS AND LORS) NOW! SOON!!


ps: how ya been lily?  :)

Question to all of you pros out there:

Would you suggest using the LSAC application for the schools or each schools' specific e-app?

LSAC.  Talk to Piggylola about that. :-\

Where should I go next fall? / Re: help me choosing the RIGHT school

are you set on boalt?

With Berkeley, does your aid take into account that tuition drops by over 10,000 for the 2nd and 3rd year?

It's such a tough call with the aid offers, scholarships, and awesome schools. Given that you want to work in California, I'd say Berkeley is probably the best fit for you, and the massive asian population of the Bay Area certainly will help you not feel like an outcast. Philadelphia also has a great Asian population and so does UPenn in general (though I'm not sure if the Law School does), so you might want to consider that too. Either way, you can't go wrong!

I had a blast at Penn. If not Boalt, then I would say go there.  It's an ivy and you cannot underestimate the level of networking that can be had at those schools...plus I think the Penn name carries more weight on the West Coast than UVA...just my opinion though

3 weeks

The matching thing is not guaranteed(I thought it was) and they are not going to match it.

Doesn't Berkeley do matching scholarship stuff?

Send them your stuff from G-town or UVA, and they will attempt to match it...

how long did it take for them to get back to you?

It's gonna be between:

 

Georgetown: full tuition scholarship

UVa: 63,000

Penn: 61,000

Berkeley: Boo@ the lack of funding issue. 25,000

 

After visiting each schools, Berkeley was my favorite, regarding its student body and holistic culture. I really felt right there when I visited. I also LOVED UVa, but being the stark minority thing concerns me a little.

 

I do want to end up in California legal market, and that does put Berkeley up in the running. However, it seems that I can go to CA from any of those schools mentioned above if I try a little harder. I don't have any CA ties on my resume though.

 

What do you think? I would really appreciate any thoughts. Does it worth it go to Berkeley paying something like 40k more just because I felt really right there?

 

Am I stupid to give up the full ride at gtown? I did really like the school and the surrounding environment.

 

Gtown wants an answer by the 15th of April. Others want their deposit thing by the 28th of April. should I let go Gtown and have about two more weeks to think about others?

 

Mmmm in addition, here are pros and cons of each school, based on personal, and rational observations.

 

Berkeley:

 

PROS:

Strongest APALSA community out of all those schools. It seemed really cohesive. People(Asians) I've encountered said that they've developed really great mentoring relationships there. Got jobs through there, etc. Even though rationally, this shouldn't be the deciding factor about the school I guess.

 

People looked super happy. The pass/fail grading system seemed to really promote non-competetive environment.

 

Location is great. I love the bay area and I've always wanted to live there and work there.

 

CONS:

 

Cracking down facilities

Lack of funding

Hence nothing to expect from the career service office.. no attentive service like penn's

 

UVa

 

PROS:

 

Very similar culture to Berkeley's - Mandatory B+ curve hence very non competitive environment

Happy looking people

I strangely really liked c'ville

CHEAP! cost of living

Great Fin aid offer I got

 

CONS:

 

being the stark minority(8% asians versus 20% asians at berkeley)

I don't know if I want to practice in DC/NY

I NEED a car there(added 10k in cost)

UVa seemed underestimated in Korea

need to try harder to get to CA market

 

Gtown

 

PROS:

 

DC is awesome

Location is AWESOME - supreme court 4 blocks away

I am getting a full ride

I felt pretty fit there

great facilities

 

CONS:

 

Huge class size

Bottom of t14(trying my best not to be a prestige whore but it's hard)

Reputation of being the "factory"

need to try harder to get to CA market

I don't know if I want to go to DC/NY to practice

Not at all strong APALSA

 

Penn

 

PROS:

Highest in the ranking out of all those schools

opportunities of taking Wharton classes(i know it's not much of a sales pitch but I was a business major in college and it would be very cool)

Strategic location of being right between DC and NY (2 hours each)

VERY VERY attentive career service

I got a great fin aid offer

The school has a lot of $$ obviously

 

CONS:

I didn't really feel fit. Even though this might be due to the biased interactions with only a small portion of the admitted students.

need to try harder to get to CA market

I don't know if I want to go to NY/DC to practice

they don't require seat deposits. they instead make you sign this form and fax it or mail it over w/o any deposits.

but i met a cool girl that I really clicked with. we've decided to be roomies if we decide to go there.  :)

another really cool guy I met. I can see myself socializing well with those. oh, my host was very cool too.
