Decided Students - Please Read
« on: May 02, 2003, 12:25:09 PM »
Originally, this category was created to give decided students (ie - if you KNOW that you're going to a certain school) a place to talk about the school, your plans, etc.  In other words: to get away from the "where did you get in" discussions.

It seems people have been using it for quite the opposite purpose - ignoring the "accepted and decided" title.  That's fine - y'all can use the boards however you like, I'm just trying to keep it organized.

For those that want to discuss a particular school, I suggest you take your conversation over to the Students' and Graduates' school specific boards.  The "Students' and Graduates'" board is actually a completely different board on this same site.  Thus, you'll have to register there too, but you'll be a student soon anyway so you're just getting it out of the way early.

*** Update: Actually, you don't have to re-register. ***

If your school is not listed, just suggest it and I'll add it right away.

I figured that, as a senior member, I should make a post here with some words of wisdom...

let's see...

if you ask for someone's phone number, and it begins with 555, you're either in a movie, or this person doesn't want to talk to you again.

Well, then me too.  Uhm, let's see.

Uhm, uhm.

Oops, I just had a senior moment.   ;D

Hey Andrew - you might want to re-organize the layout of the boards. What I mean is put the "General" board on top as the first board listed. I think many people might just want to post something and so go into the first board on the list, which is currently this one. If "General" were listed first it might help.

Anyway, thanks for a nice site.

Yeah - I'm trying to design the site to discourage one huge "general" board because people will post things that are actually not general at all and no one will be able to find those posts.

This category is supposed to be general topics for admitted students.  I moved things around so that this area is now after the application and LSAT type categories.

You could change the name slightly to better reflect this restriction.  People get here by clicking on "general board for soon-to-be 1Ls."  Perhaps if you put "Accepted and Decided" in THAT title, instead of just on the wider section title, it would be more easily seen and followed.
