Penn State-Dickinson can suck it
« on: March 12, 2005, 01:03:19 PM »
150, 3.13, DING!!

I'm very surprised, and let me tell you why. I know my LSAT blows ass, but my good friend who is a 1L there now, she took the LSAT twice, 143 and a 149, and got in last year. I really thought I had a good shot, considering the strength of my file. But oh well man, life goes on.

Get this though, how do you interpret this line?? (and by the way, this was actually a pretty nice rejection letter):

"If you wish to discuss your candidacy, future options here or with other law schools don't hesitate to contact me."

WTF!? Letter of reconsideration maybe? I mean *&^%, did they just feel bad about not leaving it somewhat open-ended? Did anyone else get this in their rejection letter, is it generic? Go figure.

School sent me a very personal friendly letter regarding my talk with them at the Atlanta Law Forum and made specific references to my info as well... That would be wonderful if I had ever applied or for that matter EVER been to Atlanta!

I am sorry about your rejection. I was also wondering if the letter was a generic letter. That is the same last line as in my letter. It seemed personal though, at least in the first paragraph. The last line was something about my life experience, academic and work experience. Did it say that in your letter to. I would quote it, but I am not home at the moment.

didn't help my chances at UF after 4 solid years there.  they said thanks but no thanks.  it also didn't help that i'm the president of my local alumni club.  my relations with the alum assoc. did me squat.
