Perhaps Latin teachers are auto-admits at SLS.  ;)

If only I had known...

I knew I should have continued my Latin from high school!
So, this makes second good use for the so called dead language other than getting the joke in "Life of Brian".

third!  #2 was getting a cute love note from UMich saying "we love to get classics majors - i hope you'll apply!"  literally brought a tear to my eye.  i photocopied it and sent it with my LOR packet to the two classics professors recommending me.

Damm! That's two top schools where I have no shot.
I'm kicking myself right now  >:(

By the way,
Congratulations on getting in UMICH! ;D

Ooops!

Consider it a pre-acceptance congratulation. ;D
I'm sure you'll get in.

P.S. I'm not psychic

ha ha, thanks :)  i feel kinda like a dumbass for putting the note on my fee waiver as the #2 benefit of latin and the STANFORD ACCEPTANCE at #3.  it was chronological, seriously.

What's interesting is that I got the SAME letter as Muppet:

----

Dear XXXXXX:

On behalf of the Admissions Committee, I am pleased to inform you of your admission to the Class of 2008 at Stanford Law School.  A package of admissions materials will be sent out to you today.

While I would have certainly enjoyed passing along this bit of good news to you personally, I was not successful in reaching you by phone.  So, via e-mail, please accept my congratulations on your admission.

Do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions about the Law School.

All best,


Faye Deal
Associate Dean
Stanford Law School

The part about calling is weird if they don't really do it (didn't for me).

Congratulations! Do you mind sharing your numbers and when app. was mailed and complete?

I also was not sure I understood the calling part.

Numbers have been changed slightly to preserve anonymity but it's more or less correct.

Maybe I can make some money in Palo Alto being a Latin tutor... do they still teach Latin in CA?

Also, to all who have been accepted: have you actually received the mailing they claim was sent out last Tuesday???
