i was surprised to see valparaiso refer to itself as valpo right in that letter. does vanderbilt call itself vandy too? i thought the whole point of cute school nicknames was that theyre only known to the cool kids  :P

wouldn't it weird you out to get a letter from a school saying "unlike other t.t.t. schools, our facilities are as good as those of HYS. our adcomm would love to hear from you! we hope you've enjoyed this BJ letter."

!@#$%

It occurred to me briefly that when people ask in the future where I am going/went to law school, I don't want my answer to make people immediately think of dog food.

ALPO is the real deal.  No other dog food even comes close.  This from personal experience! ;D

I actually like the Alpo gravy with instant mashed potatoes!  I spread the meat on my sloppy joes.

I thought it was a no-name school until I looked carefully and saw the actual school name.  That was bizarre.

The Valpo one?

I'm excited to go home in an hour just so I can check my mail and see which other schools we can mock :)

It's fun, isn't it?  My mail comes usually a day later, so I got the valpo package today (though my Columbia package came on time).

I didn't get love from LSs today, other than e-mails from Southwestern and Santa Clara.  ::sigh::  Now I'm looking forward to tomorrow.
