Denials / Re: someone calm my shattered nerves!!!!

Deep breath in…. and out…

Since you’re late in the game you are going to be held till the last inning.  Find solace in the fact (based on others’ LSN reports) that you most likely would have been deferred if you had applied early on.  You have been let in at one place you want to go and to and to be honest you’ll likely get in elsewhere.  It takes time to get to and analyze the “soft factors” you have -- be happy you took care in preparing them.  Your numbers won’t get you automatically accepted at those schools but be happy they’ll get you a full review.
   
Pookie is on point, if you wait to apply early (October 1st) in next round you will have a good chance of getting in to those upper T1 schools (even with little to no improvement in those numbers).  But really T, if you keep that fight in ya you’ll end up on your feet no matter where you go, why put off the inevitable.  ;)

Hey Super... Congrats.

Can you let me know when you went complete (when they asked for your LSAC report)?

General Off-Topic Board / Re: Highlighter Tape
« on: March 12, 2005, 01:28:57 PM »
I HATE Highlighter tape.  1) It does not go on well (jaged edges).  2) It runs out much faster than pens.  If you are going to be returning yor books or selling them for cash and it would help not to have highlighters then go ahead and use the tapes or film.  But if your keeping them for you, think about it, if it was an important section that needed to be remembered in LS it will still be an important section after LS.

About the link, yes they look like they can be lifted off the page.  But a beveled tip of a pen allows for different sized and spacing of text while the tape is one length and as you mentioned it is a guestimate of how long or short you need it.  Plus, I have seen many case books that are printed on paper just a tad bit thicker than bible pages, tape may rip them, and erasers may tear them, even a pen held too long will bleed right through.

No, it's tape, I bought one for a library book I had out.

See the makers website:
"Dry Yellow Highlighter Film, DISPOSABLE Single line, non-bleed, erasable"

Law School Applications / On the Question of Legality
« on: March 11, 2005, 12:25:36 PM »
I looks as if federal law (FERPA) does not apply to the situation:
1. BT was not a student (unless he was a ugrad or otherwise had attended there)
2. The AdComM only contacted schools which BT applied to.  Schools can share non-directory information with schools to which you seek admission.


I would love to read the privacy agreement schools sign with LSAC to get access to our information.  There may also have been a violation of Texas’ Public Information statutes.  But I don’t have the interest to read them.  Plus, there would be an argument to how much of his file BT (or any of us) wanted kept private as we posted so much of our “non-directory” information on the and other boards where there is no expectation of privacy.

However, much like the Harvard apps. who technically did not hack the school’s system when attempting to gain their admissions decisions early (and thus did not break any laws), this act shows a lack of integrity, honor, and honesty on behalf on the institution or its employee.  Those students were denied admission, what happened when an employee shows such a laps in judgment?

Dang it!  This is why it’s taking so long for me to get a decision, all the AdComms are surfing the internet and matching applicants.

It’s cyberspace NOTHING is real.  It would be grossly negligent for a school to assume that the information posted in this area (where anything can be faked) is credible, correct, at attributable to one of their applicants.  PLUS, I wouldn’t be calling the school to apologize (something tells me they’re not going to let you in now) I’d be calling to inform them they had breached their confidentiality agreements with me and LSAC and most likely were in violation of FERPA.

BTW, I am sincerely apologetic to the students, faculty, and administration of The People’s Law School

If you want to get around it and it's just a simple savings account, go to your bank, withdraw the 10,000 in cash.  Go home and answer the question.  As I remember the question is worded "What is the ammount of funds in your savings account right now?" or "at this moment" or "today" or something like that.  Then go deposit the money again.

But really, just be honest, if you have the $10,000 and really it is JUST $10,000 tell them.
