Was just notified that I'll be getting $4500/year in state.  Part of the Law Faculty Scholarship.

Me too...congrats!

Funny read:  "America:  Democracy Inaction" Jon Stewart

--I was cracking up the whole way through that one.

I sat in Urban Outfitters for about 45 minutes (as if it was B&N) and I couldn't put the book down.  Definitely a funny read!

Another Malcolm Gladwell book (written before Blink) is the Tipping Point.  Very interesting!

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.

They rank pretty low, simply because I live in Pittsburgh, and Pitt is ranked better (plus with scholarship $ from Pitt, they're the same price).  If Temple gives me $$ they may move up.  I have to sell my house, though, to consider moving, and if I do, and I get into GW or Mason, I'll definitely go to one of those before any other school.

I NEED to know soon.  Check out my stats...on LSN it seems that I have a chance of acceptance, or I have a chance of waitlistedness.  GW ordered my report on 1/10.  Is that around the time yours was requested?  I applied for FT.  Around what time of day did they send the email?  I'm going crazy here...playing the waiting game!

I got my acceptance today (MON).  No note from the dean though :P.  The details are at my LSN link.

I want to go to Pitt or Duquesne. My longtime girlfriend lives there and that would be perfect for the both of us. I applied to Duquesne already and am awaiting that decision. My gpa is a 3.3 (penn state) and 151LSAT. Should I even apply to Pitt? I think their 25th percentile is a 157 and my grades are in the 50th percentile. Or would I be wasting my time? I'd rather not spend another $60 (considering I've already spent almost $600 on app fees) just to get rejected. Plus I've been rejected from Akron which is not nearly as good as Pitt. Your advice would be helpful Thanks

I went to Penn State I know you?  Try Duquesne...I think the median is a 156
