NE and American.

I totally switched my preferences.  American just seems to have so much going on and so many interesting opportunities and NE just seems to be sort of this wishy washy school without any real substance.  I really was in love with the co op program until some people brought up some really good points about it and I realized it wasn't for me.  That was just the impression I got from the accepted students day though.

Well you do have a bit of a GPA/LSAT split which may explain why your a little all over the map, but actually your results aren't that surprising.  Baylor accepts a lot more people in their other semesters.  For me with that Chiasu thing I got into everywhere are 45% and higher and waitlisted/deferred from about 30%.  So I'd actually say you did quite well for your numbers.

90% sure I'm going to be at American.  Message me if you're going to American! Yeah!

To be honest I can't think of any job I've interviewed for that they haven't stressed they want a person to have a long term committment to the job, unless its strickly a temp job and even those are generally indefinite and don't offer necessities like health insurance.  I had one ridiculous job interview for a job that paid $10 an hour to start with the possibility of climbing all the way up to $12 woo hoo and the guy wanted my absolute word that if I took it that I would stay for an absolute minimum of two years.  This was also a very small company where getting a promotion meant someone retired or died (thats how the girl in the position had finally been promoted after two years).  To be honest companies nowadays have very little or no loyalty to their employees and it shouldn't just work one way.  If you're company no longer needs you, your gone and would be lucky to get a month's pay.  You've do the ethical things by giving two weeks notice.  You don't owe them anymore than that.

I'll go out on a limb and guess you got in.  The JD/MBA joint degree decisions probably come out a bit later and they just had their regular admitted students day.  I don't hear of many "mistakes" like that either.  I'd give them a call hungover or not and ask.

You guys are both really cool.  I wish I knew as much as you did about everything. 

Bashing internships I had 1-3 years ago is childish.  For the past year, I've worked as an FBI Counterterrorism analyst in the Sunni extremist/al-Qaeda division at HQ.  And I had no clearance on the Hill as an intern.  Now it's Top Secret-SCI. 

Want to keep arguing?

Pftt that's nothing.  In the last 16 hours I've averted the meltdown of 12 nuclear reactors, infilitrated multiple terrorist organizations and staged a fire fight with three other guys against a bunch of green berets, and kicked their ass by the way. 

Then I made out with this blond chick while her husband lay paralyzed in the hospital after he took a bullet for me. 

Top that biatch!

Hee-hee, then your daughter got eaten by a cougar.  This post made my day.

Oh... That was SO last year.

Yeah well I have yet to here anything back and I have a 162 and a 3.5 so you'd think it wouldn't be too much of an issue, but who knows, I've ridden them off to be honest.

To be honest I don't at all expect to be in on high level meetings as an intern and I don't see how anyone else could think that either.  But being in the environment you'll learn a lot.  I interned at Sotheby's and learned tons even though I did virtually no art related work, all menial (basically because I was really good at computers and they wouldn't really let me do anything else).  And it looks great on your resume.  I don't think working on teh hill in any circumstances could really be bad for your law carear.

Then why do you give a damn about him getting a full ride to Loyola, seems silly.  And on that note I'm going to bed.  Have fun.
