Maybe its just me, but I wish the law school admissions process was more like dating for me.

Seriously, way less rejection. *sigh*

You could have Yale if you wanted him but Cooley would still be in the bushes. That's right, Cooley is a amateur stalker.

So are you the guy/girl who wants to be the pretty one in the relationship (going to the school where you are above the medium for money - seeking "hand" in the relationship) or are you the one chasing after someone hotter than you (if they take me with my terrible numbers I'll accpet and gladly pay full price! Just take me - please)?

I love this thread.

I find myself scrutinizing every e mail. I e mailed one school to set up a tour (as the website directions say). The e mail response was cold.

"Please call 999-999-9999 to set up an appointment".

that was it. Other schools' responses are more like,

"Good morning, Screech! We are so glad you want to visit *** Law." etc. etc.

Gotta say, it is affecting my decision.

Well, if she was a prostitute, I sure don't remember paying.

I can understand where she was coming from, back then it's clear I wasn't really paying her much attention (low GPA) but now I'm back and I've got my act together and I've matured and my game is strong (higher LSAT), but she's heard it all before so she gives me the heisman. Understandable yet unfortunate.

I broke up with my undergrad three semesters into our relationship. Recently, I tried to contact her in order to take her out for a few years - she told me I'd have to wait. I think she's holding grudges.

Funny thread.

Edit: I think the process is, from the admission committee point of view, more similar to an auction style fantasy football draft. Only some participants have more points to play with.

Step 1. Develop an interest in the other party completely out of whack with their interest in you.
Step 2. Be crushed when rejected.
Step 3. Show up at their doorstep filthy, deranged, with half of your head shaved and a bag of hair in your hand screaming "THIS IS WHAT YOU'VE DONE TO ME"

Then there's the girl who has her friends call you to ask what you think about her and let you know that nobody's asked her to prom yet...

Are you kidding me? They're nothing alike. When dating, I am able to use confidence and charm to overcome my otherwise glaring personal shortcomings!

and just like a real girl, you lie about doing boring shit you're not interested in just to impress them...

"Community service? I love doing community service! Let's go tutor some minorities!"

"Of course I'm fluent in more than one language!"

"Are you kidding? I love studying for the LSAT!"

"Did I mention that one meaningless internship? Oh, I did? Well let me tell you about it again!"
