So I got a rejection letter from Loyola (Chicago) and it said point blank; don't appeal, you can reapply a second time, but not a third. So that was crushing, then I find out that some rejected applicants simply called or wrote to the Dean of the law school and he admitted them, much to the chagrin of the admissions board.
So the question now is; should I be a total prick and write to the Dean? I just don't want to risk getting black-listed. Then again it is Law School and being a prick can help.....
What do you think?
Do you plan on reapplying next year? If this is your final shot at it, and you're going to law school next semester come what may, then I don't see any risks in calling the Dean. Who gives a @#!*? If he says no and yells at you, he's a prick, and the school was kind of douchey to you anyway. If he says yes and lets you in, you win! If he says no but is nice about it, then it doesn't really look like you're "blacklisted" anyway, and besides, you've got other options, right?
If you are reapplying next year, though, I'd suggest not calling. Just make sure your applications are as slick as possible next cycle.
