Is priority waitlist different tahn preferred? I got the preferred waitlist letter
Bummer for tex. He didn't even have to disclose the white or hispanic thing, did he? Isn't that optional? If he really wanted to get some advantage for his "diversity" he could have refrained from disclosing race and just submitted that race addendum. Right?
I'm amazed that so many people here didn't expect adcoms to snoop around, though. I think I've posted at least a half dozen warnings about this (granted, I don't leave my posts up for very long... for this precise reason), and had admissions reps at the three Law School Forums I attended (DC, NYC, and LA) reply with a shoulder shrug that they most definitely read this board. Why wouldn't they? It's an amazing resource. I've met some truly amazing and inspiring people on here... but I've also met some who are equally frightening. And, come on, there's no expectation of privacy. Same thing goes for a google search. I wouldn't even be upset with a law school they if it did a quick background check using intelius or some similar service. The application fees are certainly high enough to cover stuff like that... and it doesn't take but a minute or two to complete.
None of this excuses the actions of tex's particular school... but was it totally unforeseeable? I don't know. I think tex made a mistake, too. Hopefully he's learned from it... and hopefully he can still get the ABA to let him practice law some day.
I applied fairly early to American and Fordham (among other schools that I have already heard from) in early-mid November and am still waiting to hear from them.
I received a "pending" letter from Fordham and nothing from American as of yet. I feel like its getting kind of late so I'm a little nervous.
Anyone else in this boat?
okay, i applied to three schools at the end of october, and i was complete at each one some time in november. i haven't heard from two schools...one's only sent out acceptances so far. the other one's sent acceptance, rejection, and waitlist notifications. my numbers are borderline (gpa on the high side, lsat on the low side).
i wasn't too nervous before, but it's the second week of march. the schools say they review apps in the order received. what would you say is holding them up?
Is everyone on this thread a virgin?
(here's the sarcasm)
You're here. So.....HELL NO.
