Law School telephone survey

Postby LSATfromNC » Wed Mar 31, 2010 8:41 pm

Sorry if this is posted elsewhere. I just got a call about a law school survey. Supposedly you get $50, but we will see. Any one else on here get this call? For a minute it felt like a school was trying to gauge my interest, but the guy said they got my information from LSAC (which I don't really appreciate). Pretty much he asked where I applied (I simplified the list out of embarrassment lol), and what I thought about each of them, but then got caught on it. He specifically brought up Emory and W&M multiple times. I hadn't included them in my list of schools I applied to, so needless to say I got caught.

I got that. It was from a Maryland #, was a call center and seemed legit. Supposedly, I should be getting part two of the survey in the mail any day now.

Yeah it was a Maryland number. It'll be cool if the money pans out but I doubt it. I was creeped out, wasn't sure how honest I should be.

Wake is this you calling about seeing whether you should increase my scholarship? Maybe it's Vanderbilt, seeing if I am worth to get pulled of the waitlist. I'm way to paranoid lol.

Was the number 410-721-0500? I got a call from that number yesterday, but didn't answer because it screamed marketer to me. It's a MD area code.

Strange, pretty sure I would call LSAC, see what was going on, and then give them an earful unless it was something for them.

Exact same thing happened to me. They mentioned William and Mary, Emory, Wake Forest and some other school. At first I thought, oh cool a chance to get $50 for basically nothing...but then she said something about my bracket already being completed and just politely thanked me for my assistance before hanging up. :?

Hmm, I got an email survey. I thought it was weird, but I figured since it wasn't like those silly surveys where you go through all these offers before you get to send in your survey for a chance to win some money, I'd send it in anyway. I doubt I'll be getting any money though, because there was no place to put like contact info or anything specifically identifiable that I recall.

I received this call and I was pretty pissed about it. I told them I was not interested.

I got the call too. It was a Maryland number. Guy asked me all the same questions above posters have mentioned. I never got caught on anything (although I didn't list ALL the schools I applied to). He asked me if I applied to Emory or W&M (which I didn't). He then asked how familiar I am with Emory, W&M, Wake, and UNC. He said I would be mailed the 2nd part of the survey to fill out.

When the call started I thought it was a scam and figured I would stay on until he asked for something like my SSN but it never got to that point.

Edit: Seems this was done last year too viewtopic.php?f=1&t=76250

I got the same call, but halfway through they said that based on my responses I didn't qualify to finish for the money. It was sad. They were specific about w&m, emory, unc, and couple others I don't remember. Oh well.

Did you get the second part in the mail? And have you received your $50 yet? :/ I'm trying to figure out if I should do the second part. I went ahead and answered the "first part" over the phone, since I was stuck in the car anyway.

Why not do both parts for an easy $50? It's not like they asked for any personal information, just opinions and basic demographics. They told me the money would come after they've finished interviewing people, so a few weeks.
