I think I've gotten 732 emails from St. Thomas...Lord knows how much I'd enjoy 3 years in Miami with absolutely no job prospects coming out of that.

This also detracted me from applying there, that and the fact that I don't know how bad it really is and didn't feel like getting the printouts from the DMV.

Have your personal statement say this " I'm only applying because of the fee waiver and I have no intention of attending your school"

I've hit more stationary objects than most people see in a given day, so I feel you there. I took one look at Wake's application and deleted it from my list.

That still assumes they'll look at your PS... Maybe try putting obscene words instead of your name? That they can't overlook!

LOL! No! I am from the United States of America... Haha! I just remembered watching it when I was a child! Yeah, it wasn't that popular, but I have really good memory with cartoons :)

I love how the Ding Bar just has changed paths from talking about our dings to talking about dinging schools now talking about pornography. Gotta love my TLSers!

Glad to see I'm not the only one who sorted schools by whether or not they required me to disclose minor traffic violations...I've got well more than my fair share

+100. Oddly Wake Forest (and maybe Houston, but I forget) was the only school of interest for me that asked.

Getting a ding from RWU is impossible. They are "still waiting" for my application despite the fact I have nearly finished a year of law school somewhere else. I could unsubscribe, but I am unwilling to blink first.
