We received your personal statement (along with your application) telling us how badly you would like to attend Cornell Law School. As you know, we are Case Western Reserve University Law School. By a twist of fate, the Dean of Admissions at Cornell Law School contacted our office and said he had received a personal statement from you stating that Case Western was your first choice!
After a phone consultation, we agreed that your statement constituted a binding preference to attend Case Western above all other law schools in 2006. And needless to say, we are delighted to have your 3.8 GPA and a 176 LSAT, so we have made a special exception to our usual policy and admitted you through our Binding Early Admission program, even though, unfortunately, this makes you ineligible for financial aid.
We have begun contacting other law schools to let them know of your happy decision to attend Case Western, and it will be our pleasure to see you in the Fall!
Dean Star Jones
