I got an email from my mentor but no BBQ invite yet. I think my mail is out of wack. I am in Ithaca now!

I got the BBQ and the ID, but no mentor... (and, if you recall, no pre-orientation... I am doomed!)
I am also in Colorado... just wanted to share

Estes Park... I climbed Estes Cone today (which I found out later is the 98th tallest peak in Rocky Mountain Nat. Park..... whoohoo....)

Nice! If you take 36 on your way to the Denver aeroport, we should grab a beer.

Yay! I'm only an hour away from you, so if it works out that would be fun.

Hey guys - 0L hoping to join you all in a year. Any advice? 169/3.63 are my numbers, I have okay softs (mostly working in the summer, working a while during school, tutoring kids).

Very good chance. A solid PS will net you an acceptance, imo.

Everyone on LSN with those numbers got in this cycle--except one, but she's clearly a flame for other reasons. --LinkRemoved--

My numbers were marginally lower at application time, though I did submit an updated transcript and what I think was a pretty good extra LOR, both of which helped, I think.

Anyway, as others have said, a solid PS and good recs make you a pretty good bet, though there has been talk on this board (and others) that Cornell will do more to up its median LSAT to separate itself from Vandy and UTAustin next year. Good luck with your apps!

I remember hearing at ASD that the Financial Aid office will reimburse or adjust our loan package to cover the cost of a laptop for school, but I can't find any documentation on that.

Somebody point me in the right direction? Or know the process?

I haven't done the form yet, and I don't know if I will. With no-interest financing, I figure I can just spend about 80 or so bucks less a month on other things instead of taking out more loans.

I'm heading up tomorrow, too!

Edit: Flying into Syracuse and taking overpriced shuttle down to Ithaca.

Thanks for the advice guys. I just need to get a good PS draft done, and I should be ready to send out my application.

Oh, and let me know how Ithaca is :shock:

I'm in Ithaca now, and although I know it sucks in the winter, its absolutely gorgeous right now. I am not missing the TExas heat. I did notice that my grocery store does not even carry enchilada sauce. My tex mex is gonna severely be lacking.

I'm so jealous of you all.

I won't be there until the 23rd--Hughes hall isn't open before then :(

Just got here this afternoon and I must agree with LeahNic--Ithaca is so pretty right now! Tomorrow I'm going exploring and hopefully shopping for necessities. If anyone's interested in doing lunch or something in the next few days, please PM me.

Getting in town tomorrow afternoon; those of us in town should have a preliminary TLS soiree within the next few days if y'all are up for it...

Edited to say within the next 2-3 days over the weekend, not tomorrow night.
