Acceptances / To everyone with GW Acceptances: Participation requested
« on: February 24, 2005, 11:23:20 PM »
I'm sick of waiting, so I'd like to know the probability of hearing on a certain day of the week.  Seems that Tuesday and Thursday are common on the LSD board...

Neurotic, I know.

Acceptances / Some feedback requested...
« on: January 21, 2005, 12:03:31 PM »
I was awarded a full scholarship at Duquesne in Pittsburgh.  Great reputation in the area, but 3rd tier.  Also accepted at Pitt (assuming I'll get some money...thinking about $8K), but in top tier.  Also has good reputation in Pittsburgh.  Have applied other places (ie GW) and would love to go if accepted.  Would it be suicide to go to GW and incur all of that debt when someone is willing to pay for my whole education here (i'll have to sell my house, find an apt. in arlington that accepts large dogs...etc.)?

Not sure where I want to live after LS.  Wouldn't be too upset if it has to be Pittsburgh (i grew up here).

Acceptances / neurosis

Wouldn't it be funny if the adcoms coud monitor the amount of time we spend obsessing over the application process.  Do you think they'd still accept us if they knew we were this neurtoic? :o

Recommendations / Venting about a former prof turned recommender
« on: January 04, 2005, 01:38:02 PM »
So, I had this prof in college who directly supervised me throughout an internship.  She was such a hard-nosed b*tch about deadlines and accuracy and thoroughness.  So, I asked her to write a LOR for me, thinking that she would be the same as she had expected us to be.  Her her husband is even in law school, and I thought that maybe he would clue her in to how important the LORs are (if she didn't already know).  (And, it was too late in the game to get the paperwork to someone else...)Well, I had to call/email her a million times to get her to send it (and I made it as easy as possible with self-addressed stamped envelopes and labels, etc.) and when she did send it, there was a huge error in the return address.  I asked her to fix the error and to return the letter to the LSAC, and the b*tch never did it.

Now, I feel obligated to throw everything back in her face exactly how she did to us when we were undergrads.  Burn the bridge to a certain extent.

She was my only prof to write a letter, so I'm just sending it with the address error...hopefully they'll pin the fault on her and not on me.

Sorry...just venting. >:(
