We'll be the judge of that, thank you.
What's the reason for eliminating Cornell? Maybe we can help convince you it's ok
Edit: recruiting process?
Some of my emails went unanswered, and the ones that were answered took a relatively long time to get a response. No alumni/admissions officers have reached out, which tells me that I am an easily replaceable candidate according to them. I want to be at a school that wants ME to be there.
Additionally, I'm going to go ahead and say that my ability to get into these schools, receive these scholarships, and negotiate has answered any questions regarding my intelligence. You are not required to respond to my post. If you are not interested in this post or do not agree with it, that is completely fine. I respectfully ask you to swallow your rude comments, or spill them onto some other tortured soul going through this process.
1.) Any admissions outreach is mostly courtesy and disingenuous salesmanship. If anything, Cornell is being frank and doesn't beat around the bush with things like this.
2.) That's a pretty entitled attitude, only being willing to go to a school that "really wants you"
. Michigan isn't going to be any more heartbroken than Cornell if you decide law school isn't for you. You're seriously not considering Cornell because they didn't pay you enough attention
3.) You got into these schools/scholarships because your GPA and LSAT are within acceptable ranges, neither of which are a testament to your intelligence. You may well be very smart, but your #'s don't prove anything. Don't assume you're superior to sticker-paying compatriots, or people who attend lower ranked schools. Similarly, you're not intrinsically inferior to those with greater scholarships/attend higher ranked schools.
People here telling you Cornell is a good choice are actually giving an honest, objective opinion. Michigan's employment numbers have been dropping; Cornell's have been going up. Michigan at 30k/year is not a bad choice and is a very good outcome, but nobody here is being rude.
