I had to post this somewhere:

I am home for spring break and my mother just handed me a fee waiver for Cornell that came in the mail last year.  OMG!!!!  I am SO upset with her!

At least she didn't hand you an acceptance letter from Cornell after you had already started attending a much lesser school.  That would be a nightmare.

I got the book "One L" which I ordered on half.com out of curiosity.

Is it unhealthy that One L got me totally psyched for law school?  :D

A bit--Turow was grumpy, and I spent the entire book thinking about how much better I would have done in the same situation, which is probably also unhealthy ;)

Btw--the best part of watching The Paper Chase is seeing all the giant 70's sideburns and mustaches on the actors!

I'd send her a follow-up e-mail expressing your thankfulness for her/him meeting with you and tell her/him you'd love to send in your deposit but you haven't received the forms yet.

Thanks...great idea!

"Dear Law School X:

Each year, many law schools compete for students like me, and unfortunately students like me can not accommodate all the qualified candidates.  I am still very interested in your offer of acceptance, so I have placed you on my Waitlist.  My waitlist is not ranked, so unfortunately I can't tell you what your likelihood of coming off the waitlist is.  If another Law school that is more qualified than you rejects me, you will move one step closer to acceptance!
Thank you for your interest in me.

Sincerely,

It's not so fun when it happens to you."
