Offer from Cornell today. Woah, super generous. This throws a little wrench into things.

Got 105k.

Cornell is my top choice? Hopefully they'll match 135 from GULC. Or beat it since their tuition is 6k higher

received no scholarship at all, and I'm immensely bummed, since Cornell was one of my top choices. granted, my numbers aren't strong but I'm wondering if I should give up or try negotiating... sigh

When trying to negotiate scholarships with Cornell, do you email admissions or financial aid?

I emailed admissions. I think the offices are combined at Cornell? My email went to the right place because they responded back asking for copies of my offer letters.

So I just RSVP'd for the April weekend. Has anyone else done so and did anyone see an option for the Thursday night event? I would like to go to that event too, but now I'm worried I didn't sign up..

Somehow missed the 16th deadline for forms. If I send them today, should it be a problem?

Also, lol at whichever 0L just volunteered to be cold-called in the property class at ASW. You've already earned a reputation among the current 1Ls and 2Ls.

Please tell me that the 0L who gunned in Property today isn't going to be joining us in the fall.

What exactly are we referring to? I thought you only saw a feed of classes at the ASW.

No, you sit in on an actual class.

My sources tell me that a second one has appeared and just repeated a point a 1L already made. Clearly, they're not reading TLS during class like they should.

And 0Ls participate in the classes? Interesting considering I'd assume most don't know enough to make much of an impression.

They are not supposed to, which is why everyone is loling at them for gunning right now.

I never understand these sorts of reactions. Why assume the least charitable interpretation of a guest's actions to the point you get yourself worked up and want to be a vigilante?

Edit: another way of asking it is, why are law students so hostile toward each other?

Probably because you're specifically told not to participate. If you have such a raging hard on to prove your shining intellect to your future classmates and professors that you selfishly interrupt class about something you really don't have any knowledge about, yeah, you sound like the kind of stereotypical law student that is a tool.

Lol.

To put it more nicely, we're trying to discourage this behavior for your benefit. Obviously, I will never have classes with this 0L. But you may, and trust me you'd rather not be stuck in class for a year with the type of people who gun at ASW. Hence hostility to keep out the sort of people who seem like the type to derail class discussions, act smug, or run to he professor after class so nobody else can ask them questions.
