Where should I go next fall? / Re: GW - still waiting?
« on: March 14, 2005, 03:20:53 PM »
I got an email from the admissions crew at GW today, letting me know that my application is still with the AC. Whaddya think -- good, bad, indifferent?

Blah. That's how I feel at this point!



lucky You! i haven't heard anything. i would say it's good; sounds like a short deferral.

i don't think it's so wrong for a school to check up on you. it's like when an employer calls your references, or when a bank runs a credit check. of course schools want to do a little research on their applicants. it's only fair. just think, if they let in people based solely on their numbers it would put some other, more qualified, or more fitting to that particular uni at a disadvantage. i think their looking on these boards is as valid a soft factor as any other.

that's what the letters of rec are.  checking LSD is not comparable to a credit check.  and admissions decisions are not based on numbers; that's why we send essays, letters, addenda, and resumes.  that's also why some of us get into schools with lower numbers than some of the people that don't get in.

this [matching LSD users to applicants] is comparable to a potential employer googling your name, not checking your references.

i'm not making a judgment on whether it's right or wrong; your analogy is just flawed.


that's all crap that you send in, OF COURSE IT'S GOING TO BE FAVOURABLE. and my analogy (actually a simile) was just really an example of how various institutions research those they do business with. I say itís ok to investigate someone who has willingly applied to be an associate of yours.

And let it be known that I donít itís wrong for and employer to google your name. I hope mine do!

Who cares? If people want to judge you based off of a MESSAGE board then they have issues. Besides my views are that if you can't say it in real life then keep your mouth shut. That's just my opinion though. I can careless if people know who I am in law school. Iím not ashamed of my opinions or how Iíve carried myself on here. Besides I highly doubt adcoms will be able to track an individual unless they were stupid enough to post their personal statement along with their social security, phone number, address, etc... That is why I didn't make an LSN account just b/c there is way too much information about people on there. Despite the fact that my picture has been posted, I seriously doubt that anyone can track me based on some random post. Besides the dumb dumbs who deleted their account didn't bother to delete their posts, so they are still available for everyone's amusement.

JLF  AMEN. I rather have a reputation of being a cold b*tch then some soft liberal who wants everyone to like them. I can give a flying two-sh*ts if someone has issues with me on here. They can kiss my pretty black behind. Maybe my mentality is that way because I already have friends in law school and a very strong support group so I'm not anxious to be buddy buddy with everyone. Besides not every law student post or even bothers to patrol these boards. Anyone with a life wouldn't care what was said on here.


i'm pretty sure they can figure out who you are. i mean, there aren't too many AA women from socal with your stats.  ;D

look how quickly they put John Edwards on their webpage. i bet that's all they're talking about over there at unc. i wonder how many people will go to unc just because of him? what class will be teaching by the way? Anybody know? Itís for a friend.

Congrats to all UNC admits!

General Off-Topic Board / Re: Atheists please Read!
« on: March 08, 2005, 04:16:24 PM »
I guess thats my point. When we try to equate human experience even in the realms of science we will always fall short. I mean after two thousand years of enlightened thought, we can't figure out a way to prove that we even exist, so I quess we shouldn't condem religious peoples for living on faith when science philosophy are equally based on assumptions and dare I say Faith.
Pico Abides

we exist. lol. i take that back. I exist. and Descartes proved that with his Cognito ergo Sum (i think i spelled it right).

Wait List / Re: What can you do if Waitlisted? Call?
« on: March 08, 2005, 03:37:04 PM »

Very politely they said because youíre not of the general calibre of students that were admitted this year.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Yale Law School
« on: March 05, 2005, 04:46:29 PM »
didn't get into yale, but i do a little something about it.  they're one of the few schools that don't have grades the first year. and you automatically get onto the Law Review by just applying. it is considered more prestigious than harvard. and its graduates generally get first crack at all the big firms.
