Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Georgetown Waitlist
« on: August 18, 2004, 10:08:00 PM »
GULC has called a few people this week according to xoxo.  I was indirectly asked if I was still interested by someone at GULC (long story).  I wouldn't be surprised if a few spots opened up this week.

I got the same email.  5:00 pm as well.  I too am excited about GW.

You can piece it together from these two threads:

If I remember correctly this girl was rejected and not waitlisted this cycle.  They saw her new score (must want to bump their LSATs) and called her up.  That sucks so bad for those of us currently on the waitlist.

According to the XOXOHTH board someone just got the call that was originally rejected.  They retook the June LSAT, improved their score, and now they've been admitted.

I've given up all hope at this point.  I'm ready to call it quits.

Law School Admissions / Re: (Realistic) law school chances

You're golden.  I'd say it's probably about a 95% chance you're in.  As long as you fill out the app correctly, have decents LORs, and a decent PS you're in for sure.

Law School Admissions / Re: Can I get in at a top 20 school?

First off, GMU and Emory are not "top-20" law schools.  Assuming you are not an URM, you have almost a zero chance of being admitted to the full-time programs for the schools you've listed.  You might have a slight chance at Emory, but more than likely you will be waitlisted there.  It will probably go as follows: GW - ding, Emory - WL, GMU - WL.

However, if you are willing to attend law school part-time for your first semester, you would have a very solid shot at being admitted to GW's part-time program.  This is what I will be doing this fall.  You can check out my LSN account since we have very similar #'s.

The one top-20 law school you might have a shot at is Minnesota.  Good luck.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: UCLA or USC

UCLA is a public school. 

Most of the people that end up at USC were rejected or waitlisted at UCLA.  Hiring partners in LA know this.  USC is a good school but their is a much more significant reputation difference between the two schools than their USNEWS rankings indicate.  At least I know this is the case in LA.

anyway, we are now doomed. unless one applicant becomes pregnant or break their leg, there's no hope.

I'm going to fly out to DC this week and have unprotected sex with as many women as possible.  Just remember to thank me when you get in.

Lamest flame ever.

you have a good shot at the part-time program with those numbers and your extensive work experience.  i will be attending GW part-time next year and i plan to transfer to the day program.  My numbers are 3.3, 164.  Good luck.

I've heard it's pretty easy to transfer PT to FT, given decent academic standing, but do you know what the actual stipulations are?  Do you just take summer classes after 1L to catch up for 2L?  I'm planning on applying PT unless I get a much better LSAT score in Oct.


You should definitely apply part-time.  With your numbers I think you would be a shoe-in.  You can transfer from the part-time to the full-time program as long as you are in good standing (passing).  During 1L summer you would have to take one class to catch up with the rest of the full-time students.  I plan to intern with a non-profit/public interest organization while I take my summer class.  And yes, you can still qualify for law review as a part-time student.

Edit: I love your screen name.  Great movie.
