I know we do this in other threads, but I wanted to give you guys a gift:
http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,42466.0.html

OP goes on and on about how they hate their school, literally says "apply somewhere else" and then the 1st reply is "so should I go there?"

oh and hey, I think someone earlier in this thread said something about a gym on the newton campus but I didn't see it mentioned on the website and I thought I had seen a contradictory post from a current student.  Anyone know about this?

I've heard conflicting info on this as well...

I know the answer, but I'm not sharing since BC rejected me.  :)

That's rough, real rough.

Do you want me to call them and ask if they'll reconsider?

I was there on Friday. There is no gym at the Newtom campus. However, I was pleased to learn that there is ample parking next to the law school building for only $200/year. The parking pass also allows one to park on the main campus, which is where the gym is located.

I've thought about appealing with my new score, but their FAQs on the Early Notification program are pretty clear that their answer if final.  Ah well. 

Anyway, I was going to say what zephyr said.  :)

I hear that many people who are rejected at BC go on to lead long and happy lives, or something like that.

There's nothing left to lose but your dignity.

Hmmm, I think we have conflicting information here. For all acceptees, I think you should refer to the first paragraph on page 7 of your "A law student's guide to Boston" that came with your swanky acceptance package. It's the rather small booklet. It also says that the main gym is $120 per semester or 5$ per visit. I think either way, the total would come out to be the same; I don't see how I would go to the gym for much more than 24 times in a 15 week semester.
THE LSN is here. PLZ post on my LSN profile.

I wish I had more fingers to cross.

I think Zephyr meant that parking is $200 a year...

I was hoping I'd get a Michigan acceptance today, and could send them a notice withdrawing my application, totally ignoring that they've already rejected me.  But I'm probably not even going to get a Michigan acceptance, so Michigan will join the list of schools where I will be rejected, but will still send withdraw notices to.

I've lost my dignity a long time ago.

I think you will get into UMich and will not have to worry anymore about BC not loving you.

Dignity is overrated.
