Choosing the Right Law School / i hate to do it but...PENN v UVA
« on: April 06, 2007, 04:15:02 PM »
im officially ashamed of myself for this thread, but i am literally torn 50/50...

some details- visited and loved both

UVA - 54,000 over all three
PENN- 55,500 over all three, but more first year

im from OSU...which is both a college town and a city, so i cant decide on that either
im unsure what i what to go into or where i want to live

collegiality is imp to me...i wouldnt fit in at a super intense or cut throat school, doenst suit my personality

im quite liberal, but love to debate with ppl who arent

um....any ideas or help would be much lost  ???

Law School Admissions / cornell status checker question
« on: January 15, 2007, 04:18:38 PM »
Hey All,

I applied to Cornell on the 27th of December. They requested my report relatively quickly, but when I checked their online status checker a week ago it said I had not applied. I emailed admissiona, got a repsonse to check again in 4 days.  I just checked agin..still says I never applied

Has this happened to anyone? is their checker reliable? do you think they actualyl have my app??  ???

I am finalizing my vaderbilt law shcolars app, and I was wondering if there is any way that schools ever see or pass on infomation to other schools. I ask because one of the application questions brings to mind, for me , a specific life struggle i have had to deal with,...that i dont necessarly want to openly discuss to all schools  or have them know about....its a personal thing, but if taken in the right context probably tells more of my strengths than any thing else ever could...but i didint talk about it for my main app cause it was too personal...for the scholsrhipo ap though, i think its time to pull out the big guns kinda....

is it ok to mention it u think????
