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.


Challenge accepted.


Hahahahha this is NOTHING! I graduated last spring. Tommy Bruce still sends me the Weekly CornellCast Updates and occasionally invites me to chat with Cornell students about life in Ithaka :D :D :D Just to be thoroughly clear, we're talking Cornell Undergad.

I just got another RWU email, 3rd in 2 days I think. I am about to try and assemble the worst application imaginable.

Along a similar vein, I was accepted at USC 5 years ago for undergrad. I never enrolled or attended. I still receive weekly campus news emails, discounts to sports games, health and safety alerts, and invitations to join various societies.

This is great! :D They just really wanted you to be part of the campus community! I still receive emails from my UG's ski team, for which I signed up freshman fall, but I never attended any events. I'm always a little tempted to crash their parties, since they invite me so insistently...

I think you should put clubbing baby seals and dogfighting on your resume under the hobbies section. Your personal statement should be about your future goal in life to run a Ponzi scheme - but emphasize that you only want to target old ladies with limited retirement funds because you can charm them with your hot dog and muscles.

Dear BU (WL),
I didn't know T1 schools yield protect.
Median GPA/LSAT: 3.72/166

Really lulzing hard. Seriously, I ain't even mad. In fact, I gotta hand it to you, it was pretty smart on your part. Why go to BU when I have a range of options-- from T10 with $ to a full ride just outside the T14 (i.e. better than BU)?

There are many reasons that I didn't want to attend; I'll save you the time it takes to read them and just post three pictures that illustrate why I am so happy that I will not be attending your "prestigious" school.

The confederate flag Beirut table is what really makes that second picture.

Dear Penn,

The coolest person to come from Philly was the Fresh Prince, and he left for Cali years ago. Enjoy basking in the faded glory of being the former capital - I'll be living in the current one.

P.S. - I could never bring myself to say "Go Quakers." It's just embarrassing.

Dear USC (waitlist),


I was considering remaining on the waitlist, until I read the ridiculous part about "submitting a short video." I thought a video a la Legally Blonde may be funny to submit, but 1) that requires too much effort for your school and 2) your video response said it cannot be professionally edited and must be shot in front of a webcam.

so I leave you with this response:

Thanks,

Instead of H. Thalamus for your name, you can put Ben Dover... :)

don't worry--1/4 to 1/2 of the class of 2011 was unemployed at graduation. many of these people still cannot find work, but are on uva's payroll under the "fellowship" program, aka usnews ranking maintenance program.
sucks to be them. u just dodged a bullet

I took the LSAT in February, so was ineligible to even apply to Berkeley, but HAS ANYONE ELSE NOTICED THE MYRIAD GRAMMATICAL, TYPOGRAPHICAL, AND EDITORIAL ERRORS ON THEIR WEBSITE? I've seen everything from spelling errors to comma splices. And these hillbillies have the nerve to scrutinize our applications for errors when their own webpage contains not one, not two, not three, but I've counted more than 10! I stopped counting at that point.

Example:

"Here in Berkeley and around the world."

SENTENCE FRAGMENT!

Also this doozy:

"Please include a copy of your LSAC fee waiver approval notice with your application if you submit a paper application ."

Note the space before the period. Sloppy.

And:

"The deadline to submit a fee waiver application is earlier than the application deadlinek usually in mid-January."

Again, Sloppy.

Check out the following inconsistency:

"•Before law school, a bachelor's degree or the equivalent was awarded by an approved college or university
•The first-year curriculum was completed in a full-time program at a law school that is approved by the American Bar Association (we do not admit part-time students unless they have completed the entire first-year curriculum)
•A minimum of 28 semester units was completed before entrance
•The work for which transfer credit is sought is of very high quality
•The student was not placed on probation nor disqualified."

NOTE THE SINGLE PERIOD ON THE LAST BULLET POINT STATEMENT! Way to be consistent, Cal!
(BTW, they make the same mistake further down the page...)

And here:

"We attempt to release all of our admission decisions by early July. It is rare that new students are without housing by the time we begin classes in August."

They use two spaces after a period. Before I am flamesprayed, let me note my indifference to this "rule." My point in showing the two spaces is that most everywhere else on their website, they use one space after periods and colons. Again, boils down to sloppiness and inconsistency.

Other instances in which the Berkeley Gods are inconsistent: freely switching back and forth between referring to "the Law School" and "the law school." Their choice of capitalization follows no logical pattern. At some instances, when referring to "the Law School" as a pronoun, they correctly capitalize Law School. In other instances, they do not.

So for those of you out of Berkeley, consider yourselves LUCKY! I'm not certain the education you're paying for is really as good as the Gods may insist.
