Now I don't feel like such a horrible applicant. Hmmm. It could be good for those of us who REALLY want to do law once we start school... there could be quite a few people who are not gunning for the top of the class or chasing after the best jobs b/c law isn't really a dream for them.

Thoughts?

I like it.  good theory.  I hope it proves to be true.

If global warming continues, and the east coast schools are submerged, how do you think application percentages in denver and the mid west will be affected?

So what does this mean about chances of getting in to MidWest schools...Nothing? Or does it mean that the fact that I'm on hold is not as bad as I had initially thought it was?

Awesome post. Apps being way up this year instead of down makes much more sense given the economy. I'm curious to see what will end up happenning down the road if all the schools end up with huge waitlists all summer. We're obviously applying to way more schools, which is the schools' fault for being fairly unpredictable, at least w/in the T14. We're going to keep applying all over the place. Maybe schools will jack up application fees to discourage applicants? Don't see that happenning. Either way, sounds like it's going to be a lonnnnnng spring for most of us.

UC-Boulder will move into the T-14

Do you think she is referring only to upper T-1?  Or across the board.  Furthermore, if the coasts are submerged do you think that Stanford and Harvard will be #1-3 regardless of being underwater?

So it say applications are up. What about number of applicants? Is it possible once fee deadlines pass that we see major movement?

Has she addressed "realistic" job prospects (as in Loyola 2L accusations and the fact that only the top 30 are worth attending etc.)  I cant find her point of view on it.

I hope Columbia is using this method.  I would kill to get in off the waitlist.
