so it looks like you are planning on UCLA at this point?  Me too I think.  Have you visited yet?  If so, what were your impressions (or anyone else who has visited)?

Boalt sent my letter home for some reason and my parents neglected to send me it or tell me about it until today when I received it in the mail from them.  I thought I was actually in consideration! But no, rejection letter dated March 1st! F Boalt

Well I e-mailed Duke last night and received a reply that they would "make every effort to send me a decision by the END of April." wow, I've been complete since mid-november, the anticipation is killing me

Choosing the Right Law School / Why T14?

Is T14 simply a creation of LSD?  Or does the educational quality, job prospects, etc. really take a sudden nosedive after g'town? I'm essentially wondering, why the cutoff after the T14?  Is this completely arbitrary or are there good reasons to separate G'town and up from UT and down?

Eva, why do you hate WUSTTTL so much? Just curious

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Has time ran out?

I'm sorry i'm not trying to be a gunner or a jackass. but is it, "has time run out?" I could be wrong, I'm just curious.  As far as the topic of conversation on the post:  I think that if you have not been admitted you better hope that your extracurriculars can stand up to applicants with similar numbers.  If they are still holding onto your application I think it means that you are being compared to applicants with virtually identical numbers and they are trying to make "fine distinctions between a number of applicants with similar credentials" as the UVA admissions office said in someone's thread recently (or something like that).  Anyway, good luck to all, but I would start to make preparations to attend wherever you have been admitted and hope for the best anywhere else.

I agree that 95% of attorneys I have talked to say do not go to law school.  What I repeatedly hear is that the practice of law has changed, when you get a job at a firm you are no longer seen as a person but as a machine to churn out billable hours.  With that being said, I have always wanted to be a lawyer and virtually nothing can change my mind.  I do think that I will be put in an interesting situation if I have to choose between big money and long hours or the type of job I have always envisioned with lower $$.  I think there are some smart people on this thread that have really made me think about it, I thought that the only people on LSD were BIGLAW fanatics.

I'm also in the club, same situation as oaf, 165/3.9, complete since late november.  Good luck everyone.
