The only mail I get is prospectuses

Postby smartin » Tue Feb 02, 2010 11:05 pm

Anyone else get home after work, check their mail, see the box stuffed with thick envelopes and think those are acceptances?

T3 schools keep sending me prospectuses, brochures and fee waivers, encouraging me to apply.

It's just evil to send out thick envelopes this late in the cycle.

Anyone else in the same boat?

They make me sad. I feel like I'm rejecting a nice guy who is trying really hard.

I personally love the emails I get that are from "law admissions", then you open them thinking they're a decision and it's nothing but a good luck in February on the LSAT- love tulsa/cumberland/NIU. UGGGH!!

+1, but with exception to the annoying schools that spam my inbox on a daily basis. NO I DONT WANT TO MOVE TO IOWA. NO I HAVEN'T SHOWN ANY INTEREST IN YOUR SCHOOL STOP SENDING ME EMAIL!

I got one last night. I didnt see who it was from because it was turned over. I flip it over in excitement, only to read "Marquette" :(

If I remember correctly, when I signed up for the CRS, I chose the geographic areas that I'd be interested in going to school. They were all on the east coast. Why would the University of Tulsa think I'd want to move out there? Do schools actually get a fair number of additional applications from people who were not originally interested in those areas?

Also, did any other women get a slightly sexist, introductory (and unsolicited) e-mail from Gonzaga about "the opportunities Gonzaga University School of Law offers to women students"? I wonder if potential male applicants got emails about "the opportunities Gonzaga University School of Law offers to men students." I would bet not.
