General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Anyone else going to GULC?

I went on the admitted students website, and there is a new option on the bottom to choose your curriculum.

On the website, they claim that B might be more reading, but the extra reading is usually pretty interesting.  It also should be noted that you are ranked in your own section, if I recall, so it isn't like the A curriculum people end up with an advantage becaue of lighter workloads.

As for me, one of my majors is philosophy, so its a bit of a no-brainer choice.  I chose B today.

Wait List / Re: Accepting a Waitlist offer
« on: April 29, 2005, 02:38:42 AM »
Lol, you people are crazy.  Schools don't think you have committed to attend just because you accepted a spot on the waitlist.  How crazy would it be to expect you to say yes even though they have essentially informed you that you are probably not getting in, and if you do get in, it will be whenever they feel like it.

Even sending deposits is not sketchy, and i am sure schools are plenty happy getting to keep your 250 dollars and letting some other person in.  The only thing I would consider morally questionable is promising to attend a school when you don't really mean it.  Not that everybody doesnt do that anyways.  Remember, you are just a set of numbers to them, don't bother feeling sympathy for law schools.

i'm pretty sure by "accepting a waitlist offer" the OP meant an offer of admission after being place on the waitlist, not accepting a spot on the waitlist in the first place

Ah, I see, that does seem to be the case. I don't see any moral distinction between accepting this offer and putting down a deposit if admitted normally.  The law schools don't make you pinky swear; the deposits exist for exactly this reason.  Don't worry about the law school, they don't love you for who you are, they send those nice love letters to all the girls...

Where should I go next fall? / Re: rutgers vs WL at fordham

Hmm, I don't think there are any "fat sandwiches" at Rutgers-Newark are they? Those food trucks are only at New Brunswick.

Very true, very true.  Not that that stops me from ranting, but still.

Wait List / Re: Waitlist movement - post here!

Got Dean Cornblatt's not so subtle e-mail acceptance on 4/26 from GULC.  I was admitted for 2006 and put on the preferred waitlist back in march.  I pretty much just responded to their waitlist offer by telling them to consider me and saying i would like to go.  Sent an e-mail checking in recently, but I never sent them anything new in terms of letters (recommendations or begging  :) ).  Go Hoyas!  Hoyas are gonna infest your garden! (scary scary mascot there....)

"Don't forget to try Rutgers' Fat Sandwiches.  I recommend 'Fat Dyke.'  It'll clog your arteries, but it is delicious."

Alas, the Fat Dyke is no more.  Along with some others like the Fat female dog, the Fat Dyke was removed from the trucks after pressure form the LGBT community.  All of us Rutgers students were appalled at the insane lack of respects for our traditions.

Really annoyed me since i spend all this time trying to convince people that gay marriage should be allowed because of my feelings about human rights.  Glad to see the LGBT community at Rutgers is expending energy getting rid of sandwiches that "foster an atmosphere of discrimination."  Look LGBT community, you live in New Brunswick community, not the south, quit with the frivolous complaints that marginalize you as a group.

Oh, and that is a tough decision you got there, man. Since most people on waitlists don't get off, maybe you won't have to worry about it anyways (this is me trying to be positive, believe it or not).  Either way don't stress now since it is out of your hands.

Acceptances / Re: Unbelievable

Schools do play the not-so-subtle e-mail acceptance game, including GULC.  If you want someone more credible to ask about that, there is always Bachante.  As for the OP, the complete lack of details and numbers probably does indicate it is not true and he has done nothing to chance that as of yet.

Acceptances / Re: In off of Georgetown Preferred WL!
« on: April 27, 2005, 12:11:08 PM »
Hey, i know how you feel about turnin down some good money.  15 grand from Fordham and the chance to live in the city I really want to be just for a 2006 admission and a waitlist to GULC. Thankfully, I got an e-mail from Dean Cornblatt around 4 o'clock yesterday.  Did he also use the line about not being able to give a decision but you would be pleased, with the "(subtle enough)" parenthetical?

Heh, i figured that was the responce i would get since i have never posted before just like the OP.  Well, you can believe what you you like about mine, but I am as curious as you in regards to whether that story is true.  It doesn't seem to be, obviously, but the resemblance to how I got notified still makes me wonder.
