What Pookie said re: UCLA.

Also, if this is supposed to include all ABA law schools, then I suggest you add these:

-- Santa Clara: No. Snail mail.
-- Notre Dame: Yes.
-- Texas: No.

I also suggest amending Duke to, "Yes; Subject Line: CONGRATULATIONS!!". If you're not looking for it, it's very easy to miss; I only saw it because I have a special law school email addy.

Thanks for doing this! :)

ha ha, how would you have missed "CONGRATULATIONS!!"?  because it looks like spam e-mail subject?

i set up two new e-mail addresses before sending out apps; one for people i know and for schools, the other for newsletters and other stuff you sign up for.  every time i check the spam folder of that second address, i am glad i don't use the same address for both, because there's still like, "your application has been approved!" which at first glance sounds like an acceptance.   :D

I barely noticed Chicago-Kent's either since all it said was "Chicago-Kent" and I was thinking it was more spam! Okay, I've updated to this point. I will do all law schools, as long as people respond :)

Exactly. Further, the email doesn't even say it's from Duke; the Duke email addy is covered up by "Dennis J. SHIELDS" or somesuch, which looks spammy. I've been using email for over half my life; at this point, I instinctively 'roll over' anything that looks like spam. I literally marked it as 'Read' and deleted it without even being aware that I did it. I only found out about it when I came here, saw that others were emailed, and went hunting. Now that I type it out, it sounds psychotic. Hrm. Anyway, ironically enough, I wrote my Duke "Academic Essay " on spam. They clearly didn't read it.

Mine was originally just for LSAC, but then I gave it to all the law schools. It's become the de facto email for anything important.

Starresky-- Thanks for the update! Looks good.

I'll add that in my case, Virginia didn't call. The first notification that I recieved was the admission letter that came in the mail.

No phone call from UVa, no "Go Bruins!" smiley email from UCLA, I am feeling no love. :( On top of the lack of love being single on V-Day. :'(
