Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Michigan Wait List Rejection
« on: June 27, 2005, 03:16:13 PM »
Received the letter today, and I have to say it was very kind and considerate.  Nice to finally have some closure on the subject.

Just got another email this morning from GULC asking for me to reconfirm my interest. I didn't receive the "optimistic" email last time, but rather the short one.  I am just curious if other people have received this email and if there are again two different versions.

Choosing the Right Law School / BC vs. Wait lists
« on: April 23, 2005, 09:12:03 PM »
Ok, so I have put in my deposit at BC and I am perfectly happy attending there in the fall. I am however on 4 wait lists, UPenn/Michigan/GULC/Cornell, assuming my Cornell "reserve" turns into an official wait list. I am fairly sure I want to go into some type of BigLaw. I like Boston and would not mind living here for the near future. 

I guess my question is if all of these schools are easy picks over BC at this point. BC has given me a great financial package and the campus/area suits me well. I have many ties to the area, so the Boston area would be the obvious first pick for a job after school. I have heard that due to the majority of Harvard grads going to NYC, that BC (perhaps an argument for BU) is the top dog in Boston if not New England as a whole. I am just wondering if all of these factors bring BC up into the "T-14" level of the other schools in my scenario.

I have throughout this process assumed I would automatically attend the more prestigous schools, I just want to make sure that logic is sounds. Oh, and no I am not a rankings whore, I picked BC over GW and BU.

Let me know your thoughts.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Wait list trigger

Assuming most schools have a first seat deposit date of around April 15th, how fast do you think the turn around will be before the first round of wait list acceptances?

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / How long will you wait?

I have pretty much decided where I am going for LS now, seeing how the deposits are due in a couple weeks, and I realized that I am going to have to set into motion a bunch of plans over the early summer months in preparation. Being on 4 waitlists, all at schools that I would definitely like to attend, I am trying to start thinking of some sort of waitlist deadline at which point I won't change my plans.

Any thoughts?

Anybody notice that it fell to $50,000 on the 25% end?! Now BC's fell slight to $95,000, but $50,000 is similiar to the lower ends of Northeastern and Suffolk, and no where near a top 20 school.

No surprise here, I'm just glad they finally had some extra paper to send it to me! For stats, I'm Neub on LSN.

Choosing the Right Law School / Cornell Status Check
« on: February 10, 2005, 05:58:45 PM »
Can anyone vouch for the accuracy of the Cornell status checker, as in did you only receive notification after you went to decision.  Just wondering because I have been complete for a loooong time.

Choosing the Right Law School / FAFSA Correction Notification
« on: February 02, 2005, 05:15:45 PM »
Alright, I went through the process of filling out the electronic fafsa and filed for the first 6 schools.  Once it was processed and I received an email for it, I went back in and filed for the next 6.  The problem is that I have yet to get any response as to what is happening with the corrected fafsa. Its been about 2 weeks since I made the corrections.

I was just wondering if this is normal or if perhaps I have a problem on my hands.

Choosing the Right Law School / Auto-admit/reject Index scores
« on: December 10, 2004, 05:37:52 PM »
Just from the numbers of people accepted and from what I've heard from others, it looks like GW's auto-admit, auto-reject numbers are 3.4 and 3.1 respectively.  Does anyone know any other school's numbers?
