I think I know someone who can share your pain...

Don't worry - I think you'll be getting a couple of early Christmas presents that will turn that frown upside down!

PCranes, don't worry about it...your numbers are very good and you will start getting in places soon!  Its only Dec. and many schools don't even start to LOOK at apps till January!!

Dearest Cranes,

If you've heard nothing from nobody, have you instead heard everything from everyone??!?!?

Sincerely Yours,

BLAHHHH

This thread I created was pretty self-centered and overly dramatic. Don't feel down. (range.http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,98135.0.html)

With your stats, I'd say your lock for at least some schools in the 30-15 range. Maybe even a T14 with the right soft factors. So don't be down.

Besides. Remember, the old? adage! "Save... the best. For last?!"

I doubt that this is true.  Can you name any schools?

Here in Georgia, Both Emory and Ga. State don't start looking at Apps till Jan. 1st

Both of you have no need to worry.  Both of your numbers are excellent and plenty of schools want you.  This board is bad because there are a bunch of overachievers here...Most people haven't event turned their apps in, you will start finding out soon!!

Don't worry papercranes. You will definitely get into more than a handful of schools of your list. It's not time to start distressing just yet...you still have the rest of December and I'll be surprised if you still didn't hear anything by new years!

The only school that you might have heard back from yet is William & Mary.  I think Reezy got a scholarship there, so you're in good shape.

Every other school on the list is going to take a little time.

And apparently your soft factors were good.  Like 8 people picked you to go to Michigan after reading your essays.  Most of my votes were for Emory.

I think your biggest mistake was failing to capitalize on the fee waivers.  I, on the other hand, strategically applied to schools that would let me in right away.


And what's this about definitely hearing back from BC in a week?  Do I count as well?  (I submitted apps just a few days later)
BC? Care to elaborate?
