DAMN YOU LAW SCHOOL SPAM!!

Postby onetimeonly95 » Tue Feb 02, 2010 2:52 pm

If I get one more email from a TTT, I will go crazy!! This is ridiculous. I hate having my heart skip a beat to a new email only to find out that I'm being solicited by some T4s.All I want are some decisions, is that too much to ask? Smh..

I got one saying that they were "regionally accredited." That sounds like a good idea to drop 150 G's on.

I'm tired of Penn State chats and news from Detroit Mercy.

I know this is snobby but I always feel vaguely insulted when really bad schools email me. The stuff that comes in the mail is even worse. The other day I thought I was getting a scholarship package from BU Law and after I opened it discovered it was a viewbook from RU Law.

I get something from Detroit Mercy at least once a week. Not sure why. I've never expressed an interest in Detroit or mercy.

GW has email me twice in the past two weeks asking me to apply. I have no idea why since im an auto reject. Im thinking of replying and asking for a fee waiver (do they even give them out?) just for the hell of it.

GWU is robably just trying to up their "selectivity rating" for the rankings. But if you are URM, you never know. Maybe that or something else in your profile, like a gnarly upward grade trend, piqued their interest. GWU really emphasizes your last two years of school, so maybe that did it. Apply and see what happens. We can only toake your word for it on the auto reject since only you know your numbers. But you should still give it a shot. What if you get in? If your essays are really good it can happen.

But back to the OP...

I am sick of Pacific, Texas Tech, NYLS, Michigan State, Charlotte, LSU, and Loyola New Orleans

But the worst offenders are Phoenix Law, Florida Coastal, Valporaiso, Liberty, and Cooley. They have to know I would never attend their schools with my numbers. Why are they wasting time, space and Paper?!

I asked for a fee waiver, which they denied. Two weeks later they started mailing me packets and cards asking me to apply. wtf.

Ohio Northern invites me to live-chats every week. They are also the only emails that my virus checker says are unsafe to open and directly after I opened it anyway (I mean, they are a law school for Chrissakes) my computer got taken over by a virus and I had to spend 180 to get it fixed. I hate them.

No URM (though a minority), definitely no upward grade trend (straight B/B+ student, though I did get 1 C my last semester of ug). my numbers are in my profile, which are auto-reject numbers for gw. Plus, even if I do get in somehow, im not going to pay sticker and wind up 120k+ debt.

oh, and i just received spam from u detroit mercy and u of cincinnati

I've gotten over 15 packets... even one from Cooley. Which, might I say, had a large flower on the front. I think it was a daisy.

"Valparaiso Law would like to receive your application"

Contrary to the Cheap Trick song, I do not want you to want me; I want to want you.


Detroit Mercy and Quinnipiac have given me the "OH! LAW school email! Oh....." false alarm a few times now.

The most annoying one for me are the ones from Candy at University of Phoenix about how she can only hold that scholarship for me for a few more weeks . . . also, got a big pamphlet inviting me to Cooley's open house today.

I emailed them early to get a fee waiver as I´m above medians and BU gave me one. Apparently GW does not give merit based fee waivers or so they say. Gave me some bs about it not being fair. I did drop the $ bc i needed another backup and thankfully i got in.

If they give you a waiver i want to know about it.
