Normally these Ding Bar entries have pretty clear metaphorical meanings that map onto real life, but what on earth does this mean in the context of law school admissions?

To answer my own question: exactly what it says. Duke asks for bikini shots of female applicants and selects on the basis of posterior endowment. I expect nothing less, given how wacky the whole process is at this point.

LOL. Because the ABA has proven to be such an involved regulatory force concerning law schools.


This is very true. But they might be looking for someone to make a scapegoat soon. Although that might be the Thomas Jefferson School of Law.


From what I know, ABA has already "punished" Villanova. I do not believe the whole thing has had much of an affect on students getting jobs, or its reputation overall, but please do enlighten me if anyone knows otherwise.

I'm guessing it's ding season, because I got another one yesterday.

Dear George Mason,

I appreciate the wait-list because I doubt I could stand spending three years in your ugly facilities on a random street across from industrial looking buildings.
Also- the George who people actually know about and our southern friend Robert E Lee gave me a scholarship to come to their school. It's not that much, but I must assume it is more than your yearly budget for repairs such as replacing broken chairs or plumbing.

good luck with that.

Dear Berekely

They told me you would like my GPA. I told you I would be willing to pay 52,000 a year to hang out with your hippies. Turns out people lie.

Sincerely,

lol sure:

Dear fingerscrossedxx,


After reviewing thoroughly your application for admission to UC Berkeley School of Law, the Admissions Committee has decided, with regret, not to offer you a place in the Class of 2015.

Our decision was not easy. The majority of our applicants are well-qualified to pursue the study of law, and indeed many of them are qualified to pursue that study at Berkeley. But with more than thirty applicants competing for each place in the class, our choices must be highly selective. Although our review process is thorough, it is also human, fallible, and in part subjective.

You are to be congratulated on your accomplishments, and I hope that you will be admitted at other law schools. If Berkeley Law remains your first choice you may wish to consider applying to transfer at the end of your first year at another ABA-approved law school. Transfer applicants are evaluated primarily on their first-year performance, and we offer advanced standing admission to 40-45 students annually from an applicant pool of approximately 250-300 candidates.


I am sorry that this letter must convey disappointing news. We wish you all the best in your applications to other law schools and in your career. Thank you very much for your interest in Berkeley Law and for entrusting us with your application.

Sincerely,



Edward Tom
Dean of Admissions


he is sorry this letter must convey disappointing news.

Dear Chicago,

I almost regretted applying the day after I clicked "submit" when I met my first youngish alumni. I probably wasn't ever going to get in, but this rejection almost makes me happy because I have yet to meet a single alumni since who was capable of carrying on a conversation in a civilized manner.

Instead, I want a law school where..

- the girls are cuter than the squirrels
-the student body has never elected anyone who has eaten their own umbilical cord
-a fun time is anything besides getting together and making a suspension bridge out of marshmallows and toothpicks
-i can still talk to people without making any references to dungeons and dragons
-fun goes to LIVE!!!!

Besides, If I had gotten in, I would have had to change my diet to wheat grass water and tofu.

Best,

T00L

That was just phenomenal.

A little off topic but I am going to add my Fulbright rejection.
Thank you for letting me know that you did not require my services. It looks like I will just have to go to law school next year and move closer to starting my career. Oh well. I really wanted to waste a year in the middle east with you Fulbright. Oh and before I forget, your mother dresses you funny and you smell.

Dear Colorado,

Thanks for jumping the gun and rejecting me a day before my December LSAT score came in. Had you had the patience to wait a few more hours, you would have realized the mistake you made.


Even though you are reconsidering me, you blew it big time. And, with an admission to a top ten law school at this point, I wonder why I ever wasted energy on an application to your school.

Signed,

Me
