Heard by email a few minutes ago.
Too hard to estimate percentages. Probably like 6-7%.
Applied about 4 weeks ago

Crazy. I've never heard of Harvard emailing domestic people before. Maybe they don't call people who have SAs or something during the workday. Also weird for them to email at 8 PM.

I completely agree. An 8pm email on a Friday night? Don't think so.

FINALLY "complete" at Gtown as of 7/7. Somehow they never received paperwork of mine that was mailed from two different sources, so I had to resend it. Rather frustrating. Fairly certain I have almost no shot at acceptance either, though it is nice to know everything got in.

Yeah, luckily I got into GULC EA. Very disappointed with Michigan though; it was probably the school I liked the most. Still waiting on CCN + Penn, and Cornell but not looking good after such a quick Michigan rejection.

Who knows with transfer admissions. Don't lose hope! Either way GTown is a great place to go.

School in the 60s

The email came at 2:05; I just don't check my personal email at work.
I got a call from Cambridge in the morning which I answered and it seemed like a wrong number when I answered. I guess it was him. Heh Heh.

Same. But I went complete on 6/30.

Were you Early Action? I was Early Action and my status updated from the April complete date to the 6/30, but hasn't changed again since.

ImConfused wrote:I am a rising 2L at Washington U in St. Louis, not getting much money, and I am in the top 25% of the Class. I just got into Northwestern as a transfer student and have to decide as soon as possible whether or not to transfer. WUSTL's OCI's deadline for early session is Monday at noon--they have 70 employers, about 10-20 of which are Chicago offices. They have another OCI for the Fall that currently has 20 employers, and though they say they will add more, I don't think it is anywhere near as big as this early session one that they have now. I'm from Chicago, my family / contacts are there, I want to practice there preferably at an NLJ250/500, etc. I am not on Law Review at WashU and I am not in the 10% there, but I don't want to position myself such that I am doing Northwestern's OCI without Northwestern grades/GPA and without any sort of ranking (even though they don't rank employers still have access to transcripts at the interviews) so that employers there overlook me while if I had stayed at WashU I would have been interviewed by employers coming in for the top 1/3 or top 25 % and selecting me because I am in that pool. Northwestern allows access to their only OCI, where bidding is due in two weeks, as soon as I pay my deposit money, which I will have to do soon if I decide to go. They do say however that there are about 800 employers that participate. Having said that, Northwestern has very qualified candidates who have substantial work experience and advanced/graduate degrees, neither of which I have having gone straight from Undergrad to WUSTL. I also do not have a business background, which NU's candidates seem to predominantly have and which seems to be a key factor in their appeal to hiring BigLaw. The increase costs of living / tuition will run me 10-15K a year, which is not a real consideration, provided that WashU does not throw tens of thousands of dollars of scholarship money at me to get me to stay any time soon. Should I transfer??!


As a fellow NU tranfer admit, I'd say you go - especially if you aren't losing much money by doing so. Class will be competitive and no NU grades sucks, but opportunities are much wider.

Top 10% (closer to 5% though) at T25 school.

Applied to Michigan and Penn. Was accepted to Michigan on Friday, still waiting to hear on Penn. Last I checked it was still UR as of 7/6.

CLS has to start releasing decisions soon, right?
