A five hour flight isn't really much.  I agree - bring reading material.  As an East Coast girl, I say plane rides are like beach trips - bring Cosmo or a romance novel.  Save the Neitzche for Harvard Square to fit in :P

You'll be bringing your toiletries with you on your trip - just stash them in your carry-on and you'll be able to brush your teeth and wash your face in the airport bathroom when you arive.You really don't need anything that isn't already in your purse (i.e. lip balm).

I bring a facial spray (The Body Shop makes some good ones) to keep me skin fresh in the uber-dry plane air.  Bring some gum to keep your ears from popping and you're all set.  Honestly, as a veteran of 80+ legs and many 14 hour flights, you're really overthinking this :)  I'd be more worried about transitioning from car-culture to walking culture - making sure you have comfy shoes and a good coat.

Now lets get to the really important stuff - what are you wearing that weekend??

I think its an in!! The only other thing it could be is a booklet - a certain school sent these out to all applicants in February, freaking them all out!

HLS- fedex'ed big box w/ binder.  Ignore envelopes, even thick ones, they send them to all applicants.

In at HLS, hold/deferred at USC.  Go figure.

That's absolute craziness!! The only thing I can think is that they filled too many spots in the EA process and too few of us have withdrawn (sorry about that)  Otherwise, why would a waitlist come with an acceptance for '09?

Considering that your GPA and LSAT are higher than mine, I think that you're still a good shot at Columbia, NYU, HLS, etc.

Dunno, Bruin . .  spite?  :)  I don't actually care, I'm just amused by it, and a little perturbed at being dicked around -  more by them going back on their 'two week decision' promise then by the hold.  Not only won't I get a decision until April, ut it took them eight weeks to even send the hold.  The only reason I applied was I figured I'd have at least one "yes" by the new year and be able to relax.  Looks like I wasted the 5 minutes it took to fill out their application.

A few friends of mine I suggested calling them up and telling them about HLS to mock them, but I'd rather wait and screw with their yeild. Well, not screw with, but rather make it honest and not manipulated.

Can we get rid of Toro, too?

Is this to manipulate their yeild numbers?  It seems odd, especially since they sought me out to get me to apply.  Did anyone else get this?

I was marked complete 2/10 and my admissions letter was dated 2/17/05 - but I didn't think I was an aut-admit.  Odd.

I got into HLS with a 176 and a 3.5 (LSDAS reported it as a 3.33 b/c of bridge credits) at a TTT.  I think the fact that I am 6 years out of school really helped.. my gpa seemed less relevant. I don't think that can be accomplished in 1-2 years though, but if you don't get in where you want and really, really want to go to a top school, taking some time off has many benefits.  If you feel burned out of school, time off can help you get the desire to learn back.
