I don't need to pay sticker to go to law school anyway since your school doesn't offer returning students scholarships im not beat up about not being accepted for my second time since last time was with a full ride anyway. Your career prospects are dim at best anyway

UC Berkeley - A four way intersection in the middle of campus warrants a effin stoplight. Also Berkeley, the town, wasn't nearly as nice as I thought it was going to be.

U Penn - There's not enough room in the bed for me, the girlfriend, and a shotgun.

Oh my god I am so excited for this.

Harvard. You made Ted Cruz. Boom roasted.

NYU. I told my parents I applied to NYU and they said that they thought I decided that I wasn't going to graduate school for acting. I had to show them the website to get them to believe that you had a law school.

Chicago. I visited your campus and of the ten students I polled, nine of them avoided eye contact and shuffled nervously until I stopped talking to them.

Columbia. You made Hamilton. We cool.

Penn. "No, not Penn State. Just Penn."

Berkeley. I don't have enough money to pay for law school and ten pairs of Birkenstocks.

Duke. Same as Berkeley, but with Sperry's.

Cornell. You are five hours from literally anywhere worth visiting. It would be a fascinating anomaly in space time if it weren't so awful.

Dear GULC,

I retook the February LSAT, of course to increase my prospects in general, but mainly with my heart set on you.

Do you know what that means? That means another month of dreary studying for a test I never wanted to look at ever again. Just so I could have a chance with you. GW gave me the signals, but I hadn't even dared responding with you still on my mind.

So when the score finally came out, I thought that I might at least have a chance with you. You said you'd take a look, and I kept my cool but my hopes arose. There was no way you'd reject me after my carefully crafted application letting you know how perfect we were for each other.

Alas, it's only been two days and you've already put me on the waitlist. Looks like you've got too many suitors to even put me on the preferred list, and you wrote me saying I might as well put my deposit somewhere else. You didn't have to go that far; a gentle rejection would have been enough.

The saddest part is that I don't think I'm going to withdraw. I think I'll just remain in your vast pool of desperate suitors hoping that you'll finally realize that I am more than my modest numbers, and give me a chance to truly impress you.

Disappointed but starting to get over it,

WellItsOver

ETA oops I guess a waitlist isn't a ding. Well it sure felt like it

Lol, understanding this reference should be the one and only admissions requirement.

Oregon, I'm only angry because you're the boyfriend that broke up with me before I could break up with you, and we weren't even really dating!

That's crazy! I can't believe they'd ding someone with your LSAT. What a bunch of dorks.

After four date changes, Cornell.... The letter suggested applying for transfer next year. I laughed, and then proceeded to not give a single f***

+1 for law school, after I met with Dean Tom and he told me I had a very good chance! Not even a courtesy WL, just a ding.

^^more evidence of two truths:

1. Don't trust anyone with two first names.
2. Don't trust anything an adcomm tells you. They literally have no incentive to be realistic with you about your chances. If you really do have a great chance they are good because they got you to apply and can try to get you to enroll. If you don't have a great chance you help them anyway by boosting their selectivity.
