Wow. Henson did everything he could to keep UW in the game. But in the end it's a Tar Heel victory. Clutch free throws by Strickland, and he played great D on Thomas. He gets my game ball.

Survive and advance.

Go Heels!!!

Go Wolverines, beat Dook!!!

THIS. I bet this is the reason the 2014 thread doesn't have much movement. UNC must have a lot of people they accept matriculate, as slow as they roll out acceptances.

Anyone made any final decisions about ASD? I'm pretty much planning on the 8th, since I think I'll be slammed with work around the 15th. I look forward to seeing you guys there!

Oh, and HELL YES about the game. Washington played well until the very end; I was a little nervous about us for those last several seconds!

I forgot how hard it is to do work when your team's in the tourney...last year was an anomoly as the NIT doesn't count. I'm talking to you, Seth Greenberg.

I'm sure the above theory about matriculation is true, especially given that ~70% of each class is instate. If I get in I'm definitely going to the April 8th ASD (I'm out of town on the 15th).

I know this is a weird question, but can you go to ASD if you're not accepted yet? Because it's looking like that kind of scenario for some people ITT.

While writing a paper on the invasive Saltcedar species today, I am currently thinking to myself how excited I am about law school. Mainly because I am sooooo tired of writing all of my papers on the same topics (my MA thesis advisor makes me do this). I would love to branch out and study some new topics, like maybe the Loblolly Pine or something (sorry, bad plant biology joke).

Well, it was so close to being a perfect Sunday on the hardwood. Michigan had their chances. :evil:

Now, on to the topic of admissions. I think we'll begin to see a pretty good amount of decisions roll out this week. Just call it a hunch. 8)

Is it actually just a hunch, or do you just want us to call it one?


Oh, it's a hunch. :wink:

LOL, doesn't really answer the question.

In other news, my Sunday has been entirely unproductive due to Carolina eeking out a nailbiter and U of M (go Blue!) giving Mike Kaskldjralhtsahlkazi a hernia during the second game.

I remember him being in an early 90's commercial highlighting this. He was a limo driver or something.

He should go back to limo driving commercials. And take the Cameron Crazies with him.
of course if he left who would I hate? NC STTTate?

If you are IS I think you are likely in, however, if you are OOS it is a crap shoot.

They missed that deadline and pushed it to last Friday. They missed that deadline and are now shooting for 'early the week of 3/21'. So, I think we can expect a decent chunk of decisions to trickle down us lowly 0Ls in a week or two. (Late and tight for ASD, I know and agree -- preaching to the choir I'm sure). So that's what I heard.


A high-level UNC Law prof is coming to our class tomorrow to talk about flood insurance; I'll try and confirm this.

And these are schools I totally picked at random (except for UGA and W&M, I picked them because they were state schools and of comparable prestige to UNC) and not because I already knew they had a lower matriculation rate than UNC. This could of course be influenced by factors that I don't know about, not being an admissions official or anything, but it seems to me that UNC is a pretty damned tempting choice to a lot of people.


*Dook. Wow, I totally can't spell.


Yet more evidence that we're better than dook.

price + good name and decent rank = win, and why I am going to UNC.

Dook has national prestige, but I'm NOT going there because:
Dook = very high price - uppityness - not quite ivy league - higher LSAT requirements

who needs a wannabe ivy when you can go to a public ivy anyways :mrgreen:

any indication for why they keep missing deadlines? this is not a shot against the bow at unc admissions. i think they do a good job. i'm curious, however, if their reason for missing deadlines can shed light into what's going on with the bigger picture.

I think someone on an earlier page mentioned that they were also updating software or something like that. That may be a partial reason for the delay.
