Maybe it's a sign that you're really good at what you do and law is a bad career move. :wink:


lol I was thinking about that today, why don't I just take the jobs out there and work for a while. At the very least I can go to Berkeley with in-state tuition. Or get a PhD in CS at Stanford/Boalt since they are both #1.

And retake.

Good points, I must ponder.

FWIW I get on average 1-3 job calls a week, but usually from NYC-DC. It's weird to have all these CA firms calling.

Looks like I may miss the Rubenstein boat (less than 3.8 FTL) so I have decided that I will be really sad if I dont get into Stanford.

Thanks, but it just makes me confused. It's really the first time I actually thought about not passing up LS for 2+ years. Waiting for SLS is driving me crazy.

It's going down to like 9 degrees here or something tonight. Def. a CA sign.

Don't you have obligations to attend HY? Is rubies really that good of a deal? I do wish you guys get it though. It's so exciting to get offered a named scholly, which I will not get.

After lots of arguments and tears the SO has decided she will go wherever I want (probably excepting UVA, Duke and any other southern school). The Rubenstein is a phenomenal deal.. splitting an apt. with Chicago COL and getting a 2L SA you could literally leave with like 20k(or less if you use summer/spring earnings for 1L) in debt. Plus, I prefer Chicago/West Coast to NYC anyway.

Wish Dean Deal's blog would be updated one of these days to give us some news...it's been almost a whole month. In other news, I live to see another day to be dinged!

BTW, are there specific qualifications for Chicago's Rubensteins?

+1. The Deal Signal might stop working if it does not get some use soon.

No, I have the same feeling. Unless I'm as crazy as you... we can be optimistic. Again, this is 100%, unadulterated conjecture.

Well I went complete in Oct/Nov, and now looking at last year's LSN class it looks like a number (a plurality even) of the acceptees who went complete Oct/Nov and didn't hear in the first round (i.e. by the end of December) didn't get their acceptances until... gulp... Late March and early April.

Sigh. I think it's time for me to check out of TLS for a while. I have to say applying to SLS and Yale reminds me of applying to art school for my MFA... For art school you do have to submit GRE scores and transcripts and all the rest, but a full 95% of the admissions decision is based on your portfolio, the artistic work sample you send the adcomm. So you have absolutely no sense of when/whether you will be admitted. It all hangs on the vagaries of the adcomm's mood when they view your portfolio, and the way their particular tastes are leaning that particular year. Ugh, the waiting was awful...

It's just my guess, but most calls should happen before 4/1 so people can make plans for the ASW. This year the ASW is the same weekend as Boalts (last year was the weekend after), so we actually may hear back a week earlier.

6 more weeks of winter or an early spring?

Thanks. Luckily I got accepted into some awesome schools, so it's not so bad. Helps me narrow it down, right?

Good luck to everybody else still waiting to hear!!
