Yah I reread mine and noticed that on the one they sent me. I disagree it's a cool viewbook though- compared to Cornell's for instance, it's pretty lame.


What? I absolutely love the USC book. Does that mean the Cornell one is even better? I shall go order one now.


Pretty much, yes. And I absolutely do not mean that as a knock on the USC viewbook- it's very nice and much, MUCH nicer than most of the ones I have (esp. Wash U). But Cornell's is on an entirely different level.

The more I realized my other favorites were reaches, the more I liked the Cornell viewbook. Funny. And it's true..

It's just part of preparing myself for bad news. I figure that if Cornell's the best school I get into, it's still a damn good school. I refuse to see that outcome as a defeat when it's a better outcome than thousands and thousands of others. And therefore, I really, really like their viewbook.

Yah. I like USC quite a bit too, so I'm preparing myself mentally for my matches and just completely expecting all my reaches are wastes of money- probably why I haven't sent my Penn or NU apps yet.

Well, you've got good numbers for USC and maybe Cornell too. I no longer believe in cold hard numbers being the end-all, be-all, even if they are relatively deterministic. There's just too many discrepancies on law school numbers where one person with good numbers for the school gets a 2/3 scholarship offer and then another person at both 75s gets less money. Sure, some numbers are fudged, but... whatever. It's all part of the letting go. That way, anything that's good seems like a pleasant surprise :roll:

Edit: Checked Lawschoolpredictor, you've got great numbers for both. It'll be fine. But yeah, NU is a reach for me too... and one of my very, very top choices. Loved my interview, loved my visit. Could definitely see myself there. But it'll take some luck!

Thanks for the confidence boost! Let's hope for the best- you have a better overall profile (WE, scores) han me, so if I luck out, you definitely will.

Thanks. Last night I had dreams about various grammar mistakes in my PS... very disturbing, but I refuse to look at it and check. My mind if just playing with me. We'll all be fine, one way or another.

You don't want to see Mrs. Toad. Deterministic name.

Hey all, I'm about to send out my USC app, but I don't see them ask for a resume any place. Did you all attach a resume to your USC app?

Submitted my app a couple hours ago. :D Here's hoping for a quick turnaround.

Yeah, that's what I was planning on doing, I just wanted to double-check to make sure it wouldn't look like I didn't know how to follow directions and that other people were doing it.

They only mail decisions I believe, so it won't be too quick of a turnaround.
