Wait List / News from Wisconsin via email
« on: May 23, 2005, 02:55:18 PM »
I just received the following email from Wisconsin:

We are writing to thank you for your application to the University of Wisconsin Law School and to update you on your status.

In previous correspondences we stated that applicants on the hold list would either be admitted or placed on the wait list.  At this time, we have decided to move all applicants who remain on the hold list to our wait list.  As you may know, we received nearly 3200 applications for the 270 seats available in the Fall 2005 incoming class.  As I have shared with some of you already, we currently have over 300 people who have accepted our offer of admission, and have communicated to us their intent to enroll. 

While we are certainly gratified by the response we have received, it means that we are in the unenviable position of asking a very small group of highly credentialed applicants to continue to wait for a possible opening in the entering first year class.   We are unable to predict how many seats in the entering first year class will open up.  There might be a very slight possibility of available seats, or we might have no vacancies at all to be filled from the wait list.  If at any point it becomes clear that you are no longer interested in remaining on the wait list, please let us know.  We appreciate your patience during this process.

This is a list of downloaded law authors.  I think you need to register on SSRN to access it, but it's a nice way to see who is publishing what and how many people are interested in what they have to say.

Got the info from this blog:

General Off-Topic Board / This made me think of Julie Fern
« on: May 05, 2005, 12:35:07 PM »
A friend posted this on another board today and I thought it was posted by Julie:


Hung Chow calls in to work and says, "Hey, boss I not come work today, I really sick. I got headache, stomachache and my legs hurt. I not come work."

The boss says, "You know, Hung Chow, I really need you today. When I feel like this I go to my wife and tell her give me sex. That makes everything better and I go work. You try that."

Two hours later Hung Chow calls again: "Boss, I do what you say and I feel great. I be at work soon.You got nice house."...

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Other lawyers in your family?
« on: April 28, 2005, 02:58:23 PM »
I noticed that a lot of the attorneys that work/worked here have a lot of family members who also are.  One guy had two siblings and his father.  Another has his dad, sister and himself all in the field. 

Just curious as to how many are going into the "family business"?

Acceptances / People accepted to Indiana Bloomington - please read!
« on: April 04, 2005, 01:54:47 PM »
Did you start getting the "Indiana Law Annotated" emails every Monday before you got accepted, or after?

I applied months ago, and never got this email (which seems to be for students) until today. 

Is that a good sign?  I am trapped here at work until 6 pm and am dying b/c I can't check the mail at home!

I noticed on LSN that it seems like quite a few people have taken the LSAT more than once.  I am wondering if this is really as bad as my pre-law advisor, boss, coworkers, admissions officers that I have emailed, etc. have all said.

I want to hear from some people who got into top tier schools to see how many used this strategy. 

Denials / I am starting to feel sick about this
« on: March 26, 2005, 01:36:28 AM »
Still in nowhere.  Can someone please lie to me and tell me I will get in somewhere soon?  I knew it would be difficult with the late apps, but being on this site and seeing all the acceptances (none of which I have) is making me queasy.

Make fun of me if you must, but I really am at an all time low today.  When I came home and the only thing in the mailbox was a notice telling me I have to start paying back my undergrad loans next month, I just wanted to crawl in bed and not get out until someone accepts me.


Sorry if this has been covered before, but have you all seen this?


Do you think this is a joke or is it for real?  If this is real, LSAC and the schools really need to do something about limiting the number of apps people fill out.  This guy is using up the resources of 50 schools adcomms and can ONLY ATTEND ONE SCHOOL!  He certainly can't really want to go to more than 10-15 of these. 

Unbelievable! :o

Wait List / Boulder Waitlist - They were my "safetyish" school
« on: March 23, 2005, 09:11:19 AM »
I know I got WL b/c my GPA was under their 25th %, but I was hoping the first school I heard from would at least be an acceptance!  Damn. 

Good news is that they made 46 offers off the waitlist last season.   

Bad news is that they were made from May through the first day of orientation!
