Well, there are a few acceptances on lawschoolnumbers, but none of them are from the top schools.  I guess Duke is the only one handing them out so far :)

Haha! And you guys thought the LSAT was the hardest part about it. Just you wait. Some of you won't hear until well into the Spring of 2007 and God help you if you're on a waitlist.


The hardest part is the endless waiting. Running to your mailbox after class hoping that it's stuffed with an 8x11 envelope. Everyday for months. God it was hell.

I'm starting to get a little nervous.

I applied to 6 schools over a month ago and I'm only complete at 1 of them...

Most won't touch the pile until right before or just after thanksgiving - they have to crunch the demographic numbers, calculate cost of attendance with the financial aid office, and determine the available scholarship funds.

Some schools are already wielding rather large scholarship clubs.  I hope it's a trend that will be picked up by the others soon.

At an information session today, Faye Deal at Stanford Law mentioned that she's going to start reading applications next week.  How exciting and nervewracking...Good luck everyone!

It was actually a joint session with NYU, Cornell and Duke, so Ms. Deal only talked for about 20 minutes.  She pretty much covered the standard admissions talk (apply as early you can get together a good application, take time off if you are undecided, take the LSAT only once, if possible, etc).  She also reiterated that she cares a lot about diversity and "distance traveled," and that abstract "think piece" essays almost never work.  She said that she admits the strongest candidates and rejects the weakness candidates first, and then decides the middle range candidates much later in the cycle.

I guess not much new stuff, but good to hear from her.  She's a really nice lady, especially considering she holds the fate of so many of us right there in her office!
