How bad is CRS going to rape my inbox?

Postby laxbrah420 » Tue Oct 04, 2011 11:09 am

Just signed up two days ago thinking itd be cool to get some free applications --first two emails came in today. Do they have some sort of filtering system where they limit the number of schools per day or should I expect to get flooded in the next couple of weeks?

Depends on your scores/URM status. 5-10 emails a week are likely if your scores are competitive.

I was actually going to ask if their is a disadvantage to turning off CRS notifications?

I've received all the waivers I'm going to get from all the schools I would consider applying to. Besides Yale, I am done applying, but everyday I get a new viewbook or email from CRS stating that someone is coming to my area for a law school fair or private event of some kind. I'd still like to continue to receive emails/mailings from the 7 schools I applied to, but I'm getting them from all sorts of schools. Is there a way for us to filter out all these emails? The environmentalist, spend-thrift in me is going nuts over all these gorgeous materials heading straight for my recycle. Can we set up a list of schools that can contact us or is it all or nothing?

For schools I knew I wouldn't apply to, I replied to the email with "Please remove me from this mailing list"

That usually stops the emails, but make sure to be polite.

You're fine turning it off.

Most schools let you unsubscribe using a link.

oops, meant to say anti-spend thrift. Typo :oops:

Am I the only one that gets a little peeved thinking of how much money is spent on these things given the $$$ of attending law school for the students?

was gonna make a snide comment about "rape my inbox," but then i saw username was laxbrah420.

anyway, the email volume's not so bad even right after test release, which is when you get the most emails.

I get 2-5 per day and I have no LSAT score up even. I got a mailed flier from COOLEY the other day. I wouldn't live in Michigan to go to MICHIGAN, I'm definitely not doing it for Cooley.

Haha!! Yeah, no. I wouldn't go to Cooley if it was on Mars.

Plus I lived in Florida for 7 years and I never want to return.
