General Board / trash talking law schools
« on: June 30, 2005, 06:15:40 PM »
What would you do about one school lying about another's stats--and offering you more money?

[It was CLEARLY a lie, not just a mistake.]

Go for the cash?
Or tell 'em to shove it b/c they lack the morals you'd
assume should be basic to legal education?

Anyone out there meet used car salesmen moonlighting as
admissions offials?  >:(

Where should I go next fall? / Re: heavy-handed admissions?

All the offers in NY and out of NY were mentioned.
It was only the other NY school that had to be dropped from consideration.
I like the car analogy--except that somehow, I always thought that law schools (any college/grad school, for that matter)operated on a higher plane than (used) cars salesmen.

Two law schools in same market offered similar scholarships.  I'm leaning toward one school (also considering one in another part of the US) but figured that calling for more money couldn't hurt. Law School A said, we'll consider raising your award, but only if you withdraw your application from School B and send us a copy of that withdrawal letter as proof.(Didn't ask me to withdraw from the out of area school, just the local one)

Obnoxious? Hard sell? Are they somehow afraid of that second school?

Where should I go next fall? / Brooklyn awardees--stacked sections?
« on: June 28, 2007, 04:17:30 PM »
I asked the question about stacking the sections with merit scholars so that they "kill each other off". I was told that this comes up often and was addressed on the BLS admitted student board last year. Dean of Adm said that their office divides class into sections and distributes 'scholars' evenly, at least at the beginning. Late withdrawals and replacements skew that balance but, he claimed, not so much as to create dummy or superstar sections.

It's good to hear that the students aren't so crass as to openly gloat about their award levels; I've heard that's not true at many schols.

My roomate applied there in February. It is late June and he has heard nothing!! Not even a waitlist although that is what I feel they have him on. Like one that they don't tell him about... grrr  >:(. Has anyelse had these problems?? Do they normally take till JULY?? Seriously what is their deal??  ??? ???

Any insights would be great!

Suggest you call to speak to ADM administrator, not a clerical.Maybe something's missing, or just maybe your mail was lost. I know someone who discovered, a month late, that her unforwarded mail included an increased $$$ offer.It happens.

Acceptances / Re: *JUST* got into Brooklyn

Some jerk at Cardozo tried to convince one of my friends that Brooklyn was going down the tubes which is why they were offering full or nearly full scholarships. They're desperate, she said. Problem is, Cardozo offered her a substantial scholarship, for three years, even before Brooklyn did, and lots of our friends got big money from St Johns and NY Law--does that mean Card0zo is desperate, too?
After hearing them rant on Brooklyn, Fordham and everyone other than NYU/Columbia, she told 'em forget it...if they can't sell Cardozo without knocking other schools, who needs 'em?
