I see from your posts that you two are part of this elite group that Gonzaga calls the the special few ready to explore law school. I think they mean't the special few thousand candidates ready to go head over heals into debt.

University of Chicago wrote:Dear Class of 2016:

We are looking forward to you joining our community this fall. Now is a good time to think about some additional details before your arrival, but it is also a good time to rest and relax. Below is some important information that we hope will make your transition to Chicago and the Law School a bit smoother. You’ll see you already have many deadlines to meet. We don’t give false deadlines and for many of these deadlines, you will be left out if you miss them. Please read this information carefully and be sure to take the necessary steps now so you can hit the ground running in the fall.


Your travels with Creighton are absolute gold. Does anyone else think that some rogue adcomm at Creighton is doing these emails on the sly because he/she reads TLS and is enjoying the lols from making Creighton look like a shamwow?

Got an email from some Iowa school with the subject titled "Chicago Law School forum"

Got excited so I actually opened the email, to find out it was from some Iowa TTT welcoming me to come visit them at the Chicago Law School forum.

I have a really hard time believing that someone with a 4.0 has a 130 LSAT score. Did he fall asleep after the first section or something?

I don't. I know some, shall we say, "less than intellectually gifted" people who majored in degrees like Fashion Studies, Communications, or Business (not to diss on those majors...they were just jokes at my school) and managed to pull cum laudes and even magnas out of their asses with minimal labor while Physics, History, and, hell, even Fine Arts majors I knew labored long hours only to barely scrimp by with a 3.3.

Every school is going to have departments with different standards of difficulty from others, and of course there are enough diploma mills out there that practically anyone can find a 4.0 niche if they want to.

I sat in on part of the MSU chat as well, to see what I could learn. I thought MSU did a good job with it. Do other law schools do similar?

If you believe Rutgers Law might be the right place for you to fulfill your professional goals, we encourage you to apply as soon as possible. Given the late date, all application fees and deposits are waived. Full tuition Dean's Highest Academic Scholarships for the 2013-2014 academic year are still available.

Faulkner U (never heard of this TTTT) just have me a fancy book thingy in the mail about their university. Two things of note: 1. They absolutely did not mention their Admitted students' LSAT/gpa scores lol and 2. They gave me last year's brochure telling me to apply by June 15, 2013. Bastards won't even give me the new one :(z

Got a fee waiver for next year from UCLA today but it also included this line:

*If you are interested in starting law school next month (August 12th), we may have a few seats available. Feel free to respond to this e-mail or give us a call at (310) 825-2080 to inquire.


So i guess even the top schools are in trouble

I heard John Marshall advertising during the radio broadcast of the Atlanta Braves, mentioning an open house and directing listeners to their admissions webpage.

I finally read Creighton's email for a long enough period of time that I found out how to unsubscribe from it. Patience really does pay off.
