in a minute and 25 seconds, i don't think i said anything other than "this is she" and "thank you!"  though it did cross my mind to offer her my credit card number so she can go ahead and charge the deposit now ;)

they should have taken away your acceptance for saying "this is she" instead of the actually correct, "this is her."  Why do so many people say "this is he" or "this is she"?  You would never use "he" or "she" in that sentence when referring to someone else.  Sorry, i'm not usually anal, but sooooo many people make this mistake all the time and it drives me crazy.  :-)

"Is" is a linking verb.  "She" is a predicate nominative.  "This is she" is correct.  Did we not learn this in grade school?

Excellent post.  I am a recent YHS admit and have been researching all three.  I am leaning towards Yale, and it's nice to see that people are truly having a good time.  Have you come across the following thread:

What do you think about the views expressed by the current students in that thread?

Yup.  One week after the 2nd Harvard admit weekend.  S seems to be the only one that's over a real weekend.

All 3? Damn, there can't be more than a few dozen every cycle with that in their pocket.

I would think that most Y admits are.

I was thinking the other how I wished I would have broken 170 on the actual lsat, or traded in my crappy rhetoric major for some nice gpa-boosting history classes -- all so that I could have something to throw back at those who wanted to label me as an AA admit. And ... you know what?

It's not going to do DARN THING.

Nope, not at all.

I wouldn't say you're getting in because of URM status. Your stats are good enough for the schools you've been accepted to. However, there are others, such as Alcibiades (Yale) and Maricutie (Stanford) whose stats are lacking and who may have gotten in because of their URM status.


Lol, I get the distinct impression that you don't like me.  Fortunately, I don't care.

Congrats!  Makes the Penn waitlist rather irrelevant, no?

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Yale vs. Stanford

Thanks for all the replies. I appreciate the advice, EVERYONE's lol. So do most agree that Yale offers a substantial prestige / job opportunity advantage on the east coast? Because I definitely plan on practicing in 1) east coast or 2) Midwest. Sorry if this is a redundant question, I just wanted to be clear.

Substantial, no.  You shouldn't have trouble finding a job on the East Coast if you go to Stanford.  In fact, it might make you stand out more.  That said, you also would not have trouble coming from Yale.
