Update on those of you interested in the public interest scholarship:

I called the financial aid office to make sure they got my application (two things I mailed to other law schools got lost in the mail and never reach their destinations, so now I follow up). Anyways, the office also said so far they have received about 150 applications, and they're still receiving more! So it appears to be very competitive.

You're not alone there. The only "Why X" essays I sent were for schools that specifically requested them, but I'm starting to regret that. I just didn't know any better until now.

I actually sent a diversity statement instead of a "why x" -- http://www.top-law-schools.com/rita-jon ... rview.html (I read the interview and decided it might be preferred).

Just wondering if that was a bad call now. Oh well. Wait n see.

I sent a Why BC along with my app. I sent Why X's to most schools to which I applied, whether or not they were requested... So far they haven't hurt me, and have possibly helped with $!

Sitting IR December here, woot.

Is anyone aware of how many public interest scholarships BC awards every year?

The unthinkable happened today. Some prospective student came into my con law class. He raised his hand and asked a question. What a douche. The whole class laughed at him. I'll never forget his face and neither will anyone else. I hope he chooses to come here next year and be friendless.

wow


EDIT: he ANSWERED a question.

Tell me about it!!! Everyone is talking about it. It has spread like a wild fire. I cant believe someone would have the balls to do that!

Also, I was on the T talking to another prospective student and even he was completely shocked haha.
