Law School Admissions / Re: Contacting Dean of Admissions Advisability

The issue I have with emailing the guy at his private email address is that it probably won't be added to your file for one thing, he's going to read it and then probably forget it. He is undoubtedly a busy guy and probably doesn't have time to add the letter to your folder, which is where it needs to be when they go to take somebody off the WL.

Right.  So email it to her and send a hard copy to the admissions office. And mention in your email that you're sending the hard copy.  That should cover all the bases, shouldn't it?

so the ASW event is 8pm at leopold bros. Opine?

i think this is the perfect place for an ASW event. huge room, great jukebox (in the right hands), OK beer, and plenty of places to sit. they don't have whiskey, which is a problem for me, but otherwise i really like it. it's a bit expensive, but it's a great place to hang out.

I agree!  And it has its own distillery.  The gin was splendid.  As was the company of my fellow 0Ls, I might add! I wasn't by chance playing Apples to Apples with any of you there on Friday night, was I?

edit: unfortunately it appears they are closing down and moving to Denver. Boo! (Unless you go to Sturm, in which case you are going to luck out).

My "Why Harvard" is on its way to Cambridge.  Now I can breathe again!  Luckily I have some more substantive reasons to attend Harvard specifically other than, "The idea of making peoples' jaws drop really appeals to me."  We'll see how all these deferrals play out.  For the moment, though, we're all still alive!

Is Michigan going to continue to take less fewer and less fewer in-state residents? Class of 2008: 24% in-state, 2009: 22%, 2010: 20%.  Any idea if this trend will continue?  It would definitely help Michigan in terms of its statistics.

Fixed! It baffles me how people have no trouble with much/many, but screw up less/fewer.  I admit it, I'm a grammarian.  I have a problem.

Woo, just killing time before ASW on Thursday!

Deferred at Harvard!  Err, woo!  I had steeled myself for a denial when I saw the email sitting in my inbox, and so was quite relieved to find out I'm still in the game.  Now it's time to supplement my application!

I'm going up to U-Dub in April to check out their public service program, and am very much looking forward to it.  Though I've never been to the Pacific Northwest, it does have a certain draw, as an idea even.  It's funny that, like me, the OP applied to schools as far from one another as UW and Pitt.  We must like rain!

Waitlisted at Berkeley. Rats.

Evidently it's much better for a newly-minted lawyer's taxes when schools give interest-free loans (which are eventually forgiven as the recipient meets his program commitments) than outright grants.  You don't want to have to pay taxes on loan forgiveness "income," eh?
