UGA men are HOT. In my personal opinion. Actually one of my best friends will be a 1L there in the fall and he is quite the cutie. So I can guarantee you at least one ;)

Excellent! Is he single?  ;)

Not that I care but I must say that the southern schools have hot chicks. Everyone always tells me that the girls at Ole Miss and UGA are the finest. More Miss Americas have come from Ole Miss than any other school I think. Just some info

We southern peaches are the finest ;)

YAY for Southern ladies - I'm marrying a Georgia peach in July.  all of the Southern schools have higher than their fair share of belles, but that's because we also have higher than our fair share of lovely ladies anyways, and most choose to stay in God's country.

Three cheers for Georgia peaches! (Not that I'm biased...)

Any word on the MEN at UGA Law? I've heard good things from a friend who went to undergrad there.

Bump.

There's also a Yahoo group. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/UGALaw2008/

Anyone have any housing suggestions? Where to find listings? Looking for a roommate? I have a dog (a Boston Terrier), so I'll probably be looking to rent a house w/ a small yard. I know they said they'd send us info, but I'd like to get a jump on it pretty quickly.

UGA 0Ls, please post. And Atlanta area folks: we should organize a happy hour during the summer.

tag.

I remember "A Civil Action" was a page-turner. Read it several years ago. *Much* better than the movie.

I'm not using the Amherst thing as any kind of an excuse for my rejections, but I do think (and perhaps maybe I put this more on myself than schools would) that I should have put in a little more LSAT study time to live up to the Amherst stats (after all, one of my best friends from college will be graduating from Yale Law this spring...). And yes, my apps were late; decided in early November to apply, took the LSAT in December, and finished apps over the holidays. In any case, I'm excited for UGA, especially the prospect of signicantly less debt when I graduate and am close to 30.

As for the whole number 2 thing, all I can say is that this year's results must have been the result of a clerical error at USNWR. :)

Good luck to you. (By the way, I did almost double-major in Latin, but no Greek for me).

Hope you don't mind me butting in, but do you think you would have gotten into better schools if you had the same stats, but a degree from say, UMass, where your LSAT would have been above the median?  Would Stanford or Georgetown say, "Well, she/he outperformed expectations coming from UMass, that's a positive."  My suspicion would be that that wouldn't really matter, that the bottom line would just be the LSAT wasn't good enough for them.  Just curious what you think.

Don't think it ultimately makes a difference, to answer your question. It's more that I would (if I'd had time) have put more pressure on myself to perform on a slightly higher level after seeing the comparison percentiles of my classmates.

Lcmatl, looking at your LSN profile I think don't think your undergrad affected your admissions decisions.  As a fellow reject at a couple of the schools you applied to I say this in the most humble way possible, but I think your late applications and less than 25% numbers precluded your undergraduate pedigree from even being a factor.  Also let me say that I'm an admirer of anyone who can pull a 3.75 with a major that requires the knowledge of Latin and Ancient Greek.

Finally, and most importantly: amHerst is a wannabe, number 2 is just the first loser! GO EPHS!

Go Purple Cows!

Wow, did I really just type that?

:)

The only mascot that makes the Quaker look fierce. GO EPHS!

As an Amherst grad, I can't resist: Go Jeffs! Eat the purple cows!

However, to remain on topic, I think going to Amherst actually hurt me more than helped me. I had a good GPA, but my LSAT was only so-so (164) in comparison with my fellow pre-law classmates. I think law schools look at the stats from LSAC and say, "She should be scoring about 6 points higher as an Amherst grad." Knew I should have studied more/taken a Kaplan course. Oh well.

Wait List / Re: Duke Priority Waitlist
« on: April 14, 2005, 12:38:24 PM »
I just receive a letter today from Duke saying that I am now on the priority waitlist.  I guess this is a good and a bad thing.  It's good because I was moved from the regular waitlist, but now I guess I'm at the bottom of the priority waitlist.  :-\  I've submitted about...4/5 letters of recommendation (I know that's a lot, but I had to pull out the "big guns;" I also couldn't use some of these in the fall when I applied).  So, there's still HOPE.  I also sent in a letter on continued interest today through the mail.  Good luck all!

This gives me a little more hope. Were you able to speak to any of the admissions deans over the phone about the WL procedure? I'm considering giving them a call...

What are E&Es? (I should probably know that, but have to admit I don't. I am, however, familiar with commercial outlines from Law School Confidential).

And yes, I'd like to know more about these preview courses. LSC recommends them, but I'm not willing to shell out $1000 if it's not super helpful.
