I think you guys are confusing thefacebook.com with a generic facebook that each school might do. For example, my UG school printed up a facebook prior to my freshman year and mailed it to everyone in my class, so that we had pictures and names of our new classmates. It had nothing to do with thefacebook.com. It's just a coincidence that they are both referred to as "facebook." Thefacebook.com is a website run by a few creative students, I believe from Harvard, and there is no way that law schools have any affiliation with the website. If your law school has a facebook, it's entirely their own creation and will only involve the students at your law school.No, it was intentional. The developers of thefacebook.com wanted it to be the electronic version of a facebook: a way to find and meet other undergrads.
I agree, but I don't think the OP was asking about thefacebook.com, but a lot of replies seemed to think the the OP was asking about that website. Maybe I misunderstood his question, but I really think he/she just wanted to know if law schools make some sort of hard copy facebook for their incoming students, only available to the students at their school.

Yeah, no kidding. And it's nice to have people understand what we are talking about. You guys probably wouldn't give me the "well, you have to apply to Cornell because you never know" line...because you guys would have known (as I did) that a 159 wasn't going to get me into Cornell. Alas, the parents insisted on paying for the application, so I can give them the rejection letter as a receipt. They just didn't understand, because they hadn't taken the time to become familiar with the whole admissions process.
My poor roommate has 3 close friends (one of them is me) applying to law school, on to med school and one to vet school. She's REALLY sick of listening to all of us!

Where are you going?

I'm very proud too. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find any sweatshirts or car decals with the law school name on them on their website. Hopefully I can find something when I go back to look for a place to live!

I don't know much about Syracuse, but one advantage Albany has is that it's in the state capitol. It provides a better opportunity for summer internships in government and non-profits than Syracuse does.

Has your fiance looked into finding a job in Syracuse? I don't know much about PA, but I've grown up in upstate NY, and I can tell you that jobs are hard to come by up in this area. Of course it depends on what he does and how much experience he has. It seems like the talk of all of the upstate NY cities (Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Albany...) are all experiencing "the brain drain" because young people can't find jobs...so they move elsewhere to find work.
But, again, if he works in a hot field and has experience, he may not have trouble at all. I'm not too familiar with Syracuse (only the Rochester and Albany areas), so I don't know how the job market in Syracuse is these days, but I would assume it struggles just like the other cities.

It sounds like they're ready to start pulling people off of the so-called priority waitlist. I received an email today verifying that I had declined the waitlist. They just wanted to make sure that I did not want to be on the waitlist, because they are ready to pull a select few off of the priority waitlist within the next few days it seems.

Arrgh! I checked my application and I have my parents address in California listed for permanent instead. My parents got the letter last Saturday and didn't bother to call me; they just forwarded it on to me in NY Tuesday. I wouldn't have known if I hadn't called them last night. Grrrrr....
What is the point of the preferred mailing address and dates that they ask for?
I'll call them today and see if they won't FAX or e-mail their decision since they don't seem to want to give it over the phone.
The same thing happened to me. Hofstra sent my acceptance to my permanent/parents address...but they spend the winter in Florida, so it was automatically forwarded down to Florida before they even received it. Thankfully, they called me with the news as soon as they opened the letter. Well, actually they called me to ask if I wanted it opened. But still, it would have been much easier if Hofstra had just sent it to the mailing address that I listed.

Presumably, if waitlist movement isn't expected until July, then their FT seats are full now, and movement won't happen until students who sent in their deposit withdraw from American to go to a school they were waitlisted on.
