I tried to convey this shock and excitement but I'm sure I sounded ridiculous nonetheless. What's the best thing to say if and when you hear that glorious "you're accepted?" I just kind of exploded and tried to control it and I think I blubbered an "amazing" and "thank you" or something like that. Any tips from the pros who've received more calls???


It doesn't matter. Be excited and ridiculous all you want.

Ask to see the school's most recent NALP report.

Remember that you are about to pay them 200K. They should be licking your anus, not the other way around.

with attitudes like this, I see why we still have too many people enrolling in law school. I need to browse the 0L forums more often.

Bro. You're the one with the leverage. When they call and accept you, the appropriate response is "damn right. how much scholarship money?"

Edit: What DF said.

You didn't expect to get into UCLA with a 3.9 and a 170?

And also, it was more so the speedy turnaround and scholarship offer that I didn't expect.
