Choosing the Right Law School / Re: UNC Preorientation - observations

bhsueiu... you get the WL email today?


posted this in the wailist forum, but figured there was a better chance of you seeing it here

Yep...despite the huge flip-floppy-stomach thing it gave me with the subject heading "UNC Law - Waitlist"...I guess it's a good sign-they asked those who were no longer interested in staying on the waitlist to let them know, in preparation for movement.  So at least they may actually go to thier waitlist this year.

I had heard that there were some phone-stalkers out there calling every week.  Figure it's a bad thing when they know you for that reason. If I ever get the chance to give some advice, I would recommend that they post an FAQ for waitlisters similar to what U. Mich has...http://www.law.umich.edu/prospectivestudents/Admissions/wait-faq.htm  Seems like a proactive way to handle it.  And I have to say, hearing ANYTHING from them was nice-at least I know they haven't lost my email :)

Did they hand out the recommended reading list?  Is it similar to that found in PLS or other prep materials?

Did they give any information about prepping for school?  Anything admits should be doing now to prepare?

Thanks!

Thanks for the advice Fireplace...way ahead of you.  Wouldn't call it 'begging' per se, but I'm definitely campaigning.

fingers crossed!

Is this for me Fireplace?  Well, like you (if I remember right) I only applied to Duke and UNC this year (UNC being the top choice).  Duke rejected me, UNC waitlisted me.  If I don't get off the waitlist, I'll apply again next year (and consider retaking the LSAT), but include schools out of state as well, and include a couple of safeties.  I considered NCCU, which (despite what people here would say) has a great reputation in NC for those that plan to stay here, but there is a particular professor I want to work with at UNC, and I'm dying to work in thier clinical programs.  I just couldn't see applying to or attending a school that I wasn't truly excited about (it's hard enough giving up a decent salary and professional opportunities to start this new chapter in my life...I feel I must do it for a school I'm really enthusiastic about.)

Bump (would like to hear about what you all learn at pre-orientation...I'm still waitlisted)

Thanks!

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Laser printer update...
« on: June 08, 2005, 01:49:21 PM »
Can someone tell me again why we need a laserprinter?  Yes, I know we will be printing reams of outlines, etc.  But I was leaning towards an all-in-one inkjet that has fax, scan and copy capabilities.  I figured that access to a fax would be useful come recruiting time, ability to scan notes/commercial outlines for mixing in with my own outlines, etc. could be useful. 

Any thoughts, especially from those that have finished first year?

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Index Formula for UNC Chapel Hill
« on: June 03, 2005, 02:23:41 PM »
Definitely more weight given to undergrad GPA.  Other factors can overcome your index score however, like URM status, WE, graduate degrees, etc.

*sigh*  I've just been WILLING the waitlist to start moving.  Doesn't seem to be helping though.  Still a little early though-they have an admitted students open house on June 10th according to posters on LSD, so hopefully it will start to open up around then.

How long are you willing to stay on the waitlist?  Up until orientation, or will you withdraw at some point?
