E.D. shenanigans backfire!

Postby Tangerine Gleam » Wed Jan 20, 2010 10:27 pm

I apologize if this has been posted already (in which case I'll delete the thread), but I was cruising LSN and wondered why someone with a 3.74/175 had been rejected from UCLA:

http://lawschoolnumbers.com/daninreallife/jd

After acceptance at Columbia via E.D., the applicant failed to withdraw from other schools (including an acceptance at Harvard). Word somehow spread and a deluge of dings were filed.

Just goes to show that Early Decisions contracts are very serious and cannot be trifled with.

Edit: Flame? I'm so gullible.

It sucks but he deserves it. Don't fuck around with ED!. It's not good to break the first contract you make in the law setting.

I'm so dense that I first read this comment and thought, "Lame? Yeah, it is lame!"

Y'all are probably right about this.

I'm probably also right that the user rhyming with "ponzerelli" should be reinstated. :D
(hint: replace "p" with first letter of word that rhymes with blame)

The story is that he applied to Columbia ED, and also to Harvard, Stanford and a number of other schools. He got into Harvard and Stanford, then got into Columbia ED, then refused to withdraw from Harvard and Stanford to fulfill his ED contract with Columbia. Then Columbia, Harvard and Stanford rescinded his acceptances, as did all the other decent schools to which he applied or which had already accepted him.

It's probably fake, though.

Schools don't follow up to make sure you withdraw acceptances. They do however send out lists to peer schools that you were accepted. U of Chicago never I had been accepted to NU ED. Other schools had no idea and asked where I was going.

Couldn't he just apply to more schools? Better schools at that?
