The cornell poll got me wondering, plus, I really have no idea what qualifies someone to be on a waitlist... anyway, vote away... the first person who accurately guesses all five will be paypaled $3.73! :D

Where should I go next fall? / Florida

Does anybody know how much residency matters in UF's admissions? I looked on their website and on the ABA's description, but I couldn't find any quotas or anything.

Where should I go next fall? / If You Get a Hofstra Viewbook...

...take a gander. This has to be the WORST piece of advertising I have EVER seen. The pictures are all given a brownish-piss-yellowish tint, and I must say, it looks mighty enticing. :D

Where should I go next fall? / What's the skinny on Emory?

I'd like another target/reach school, and I'm thinking about Emory. The numbers and stats look great, but ATL seems kind dirty to me... I've only been there a handful of times, didn't really like the city, but I also didn't really see much of it. Plus, from what I've read, the Atlanta market seems hard to crack. Anyway, if anybody has any experience (visits, lived in ATL, ect.) I'd be very interested in hearing about it. ???

Where should I go next fall? / Where in Cali should/could I go?

The thought of moving to CA is getting more and more appealing as the temp keeps getting colder and colder. I HATE COLD WEATHER. Anyway, from the looks of things, I have a good shot at a decent number of T1's, but do I have a shot at any T!'s in California? Hastings, Davis? I'm not wasting my money on UCLA or Berkeley and stanford doesn't even exist to me.

Anyway, If I can't get into a T1, would other schools (USD, Pepperdine, ect.) open any doors for me, or would I be forced to put out a shingle on a little shop somewhere? I have no idea what kind of rep these schools have regionally.

Law School Applications / Care to Make a Promise????
« on: October 20, 2005, 05:34:27 AM »
After being accepted at my dream schools, or at least a few schools, I hereby promise to QUICKLY withdraw my other applications so as not to screw over fellow LSD members. Doing so will bring good karma into my life.  ;D

PS. If you make this promise and fail to comply, Vin Diesel will come to your house and donkey-punch you. :o

I've got 3.43, 163, good WE/Internships/great LORs, good PS.

Ok, I applied to a couple of relative safeties, but I also applied to Fordham, Vandy, Notre Dame ED, USC, W&L, Emory, and Boston College EA.  I'm wondering though, If I wasted my $$$ on these apps... there are soooooo many people with better numbers applying to these schools. Do you honestly think I'll get into at least 1 of these schools?

The reason I ask is that I'm debating casting a wider safety net, but if I have a decent shot at at least one of those schools, I'll just wait until I get a couple of decisions before applying to more safeties...

...f*cking up their applications? The whole process is ten times harder than applying to undergrad, and I can't help but to imagine that a few people here and there screw up something on their applications. Forgetting to attach something, or applying too close to the deadline, or forgetting to proofread their PS... the list goes on and on. Granted some of the possible mistakes aren't deal-breakers, there have to be a few people who doom themselves with carelessness... maybe 1 out of every 100 applicants?

Sure, it's random, but I'm bored. ;D

Law School Applications / GULC PT
« on: October 10, 2005, 03:12:49 AM »
My numbers are 3.43, 163. Would I stand a chance in hell of getting into Georgetown's PT division, assuming, of course, all of my other factors are OK? I'm debating whether or not I should apply there... I'd like to go, but at this point in the race, Im not as willing to shell out the $87.

I know my numbers are within their 25th-75th percentiles, but I've always assumed the less qualified PT students were probably older people with work experience and/or URMs. I may be,  and probably am, way off base with that assumption, though...
