I have a feeling you'd benefit from your own advice ;)

I learned this lesson a long time ago. Newspaper called me three times a day asking if I wanted to subscribe. After three months I finally snapped on one of their salespeople. They now call me ten times a day. I've blocked five of their numbers and they just keep finding new ones.

NYT online has never done this to me. No wonder newspapers are dying.


USA Today? I got a free subscription from them once, canceled the free subscription (says a lot about their newspaper), and they have been hounding me for roughly three years now to re-subscribe.

Nah, just some local paper. I have a feeling all of them are TTTT desperate right now though. And dude, USA Today is horrible. I wouldn't even read it when I got it for free while living in a hotel.

@DoubleChecks: I know right? And I'm pretty sure they're stalking me too. They *always* manage to call when my phone's on ring in class. Or repeatedly when I'm on an interview call. It's creeepy.

OP, this will have no effect on your future. none. less than zero.

in fact, if i were in a position to interview you, i'd shout "hire this man!" ala george steinbrenner on "seinfeld." you're just saying what we're all thinking.

a tip of the cap to you and your brass ones.

This is untrue - I changed my CRS profile soon after all my applications were sent out, and the schools that had begun spamming me prior to that continued to spam me afterwards. Three emails in one hour from the University of Tulsa :O


I changed mine too and they still kept sending emails as well.
Also, I hate when there is not a "take me off your list" button.....some have it, some don't

You are allowed the say the word "shit" in threads here. Also, here's the thread:
viewtopic.php?f=7&t=133018&p=4361204#p4361204

I'm not going to look up the last 70+ pages to find the beef for you though, since it was so long ago-- you'll have to look for it if you're interested. I just know what happened because I keep in close contact with my future classmates there.

Here it is:

Just wanted y'all to know that Jennifer Kott was, indeed, able to out me, and just called me at my parent's house. She is a frequent reader of this thread, and encourages us to talk to Dean States if we have any specific questions.

Wow I thought you at least cursed at them. I guess the truth hurts. I feel like spamming them now with all my alias gmail accounts. And, I think I shall. :D

I guess I should ask OP first, as I don't want to cause him more problems. After all it is really his name on the line, not my alias accounts.
But I don't think spamming them a little bit will hurt OP. Somehow I think they will hear about this thread anyway.

Okay, I do think it's a little much to get all up in arms and lecture an applicant over the phone for the glaringly offensive use of the word "ridiculous".

If I had any intention of not outing myself, the size and interest in this thread has destroyed that hope.

However, I will clarify and say the school in question was NOT Florida Coastal, but a different 4th tier law school. Thus, if you are going to do anything like post stuff on ATL, please run it by me first in a PM and I will tell you which school it was. I don't care about embarrassing any TTTT's, but I'd rather not embarrass my future alma mater.

Also, the good news is, the T14 school that called to tell me about receiving the spiteful email from TTTT just sent another email almost doubling my scholarship - on top of the free tuition I get already. In fact, the SAME PERSON who called wrote the "heads up" scholarship email. LOL

Anyone here an expert on buying foreclosed houses? =)

I will commence spamming all TTTTs tonight in hopes of procuring a scholarship at my top choice.

Awesome. Maybe the lesson here is to send nasty emails to TTTs then.
