I figured since I was a reach, they would happily offer my seat to someone more worthy. Instead, I received a lecture about the obligations of an ED. I felt like I was under interrogation to disclose the name of the Florida law school I was prepared to opt out to. Since I chose not to say, the conversation went in circles. I finally said I would purchase a pair of woolen mittens and a heavy coat and I would be there in the fall. They said, I would not need them in the fall― yeah, right.
I know I’ll propably like it, but. . . .
FMAZE..YOu made Zearfoss' blog!!!!!!
A current student recently e-mailed me a link to Top Law Schools and (gently, politely!) chastised me a bit for a report on there about behavior by the Admissions Office. The story was that someone whom we admitted early decision (TLS code name = FMaze) contacted my office and asked to be released because of a change of heart, and that in response, an unidentified person in my office gave the caller a “lecture about the obligations” of early decision and “interrogat[ed]” the caller to get a “disclos[ure of] the name of the Florida law school” he or she was now longing for. The student who e-mailed me queried whether the Admissions Office’s behavior was inconsistent with my extolling freedom of choice in some other posts.
(the blog goes on to say that you never called the school and she is hoping you will call)
