Schools Get a Little Creepy...Explicit Details

This is creepy, if only because they reference my LSAT, UGPA, city....not to mention I'd never heard of them (though apparently they're accredited - http://www.fcsl.edu/admissions/accreditation/):

Dear rabbit9198,

My name is Steve Jones, and I'm the Director of Admissions at Florida Coastal School of Law. I was looking at your LSAC file today and noticed that that your LSAT score of 17x and 3.xx GPA and other academic accomplishments qualify you for admission to our January or August '08 entering class. Fortunately, we still have some scholarship funds available, and your LSAT and GPA qualify you for a merit scholarship in the amount of $15,000 to 20,000 per year.

Would you like to study in Jacksonville, a charming coastal city with wonderful weather? We have a lot of students from [insert my city here] and we'd love for you to join them.

I will be working tomorrow (Saturday) so feel free to reply to this email or give me a call at (xxx)xxx-xxxx so we can talk more about this opportunity.

Thank you,
Steve

I got the same thing, too.  It matched exactly what was on my LSN profile. 

Did anyone who'd fudged their #'s receive this e-mail?

Funny, I got it too.  They do have access to that info from LSAC, right?

Ditto on ghil's question. Ditto on the email (though they only said 12-15k for me).


They definitely got the information from LSAC because they know what state I live in.

LOL, I just got one too, and not to accuse the man of lying, but.... I really doubt they have "a lot of students from Nebraska."

Nebraskans that don't score highly on the LSAT can just stay in Nebraska and pay in state tuition of $9000/year.

That's a f-ing hoot.  He did say the same about Michigan, too.  What a tool.
