If you finish a test early, do you expect a professor to grade it right then and get back to you before the test is even finished? No. He might, which would be awesome, but why should he or she be obligated to do that? Overly-high expectations ITT.


Totally agree. Speaks to the sense of entitlement present in pretty much all of America now.

Am I anxious as hell? Yes, god yes I am. But c'mon, they have to go through thousands of apps, and do it "holistically" (so we hope) so I think they're doing a fine job.


You mean in the age of microwave noodles and broadband internet, there is still a need for patience? I should probably just chill anyways. As soon as I hear back from all my schools, me wringing my hands over waiting to hear back is going to turn into me ringing my hands over which one to actually go to.


We ALL just need to chill, myself included. I am driving my husband crazy. :twisted:

Well, unless you got a fee waiver, they do owe you. The app fee is high enough that people deserve some consideration. Cornell exploits the fact that applicants can't fight back because all the power is in the law school's hands. If someone wants to go to Cornell--or an Ivy, and that person doesn't qualify for H/Y/P--they have to submit to this process, whether it's 3, 6, or 12 months.

Not really. Most schools will get back to you in less than 3 months. Even when applicants end up waiting 5-6 months, it's an exception, not the norm.

Is this a flame?? If you want to get in, you pretty much have to apply before the deadline--a long time before it, in fact. The flawed, crappy test/teacher analogy is a joke, right?

I'm gone one day, and I miss finding out that Cornell is apparently part of Middle-earth and we're all really mad at the school for not accepting us already. Got it. :roll:

I dunno, NU is on a lake.

And the undergrad campus has a building that looks like a castle.

I don't recall the Wizards of hogwarts having to travel 30 minutes (and longer in traffic) to get to a different part of the school. There wasn't like a "Hogwarts London Campus"

You'll never need to go further than about 3-4 blocks.

Northwestern is by far in my favorite city location in the world. Like perfect. Loooove that area of Chicago & Mich. avenue. But alas, I can not attend. I do have a fee waiver lying around though.

Palms is for biz school kids and seniors, and the only acceptable time to arrive is 12:37 pm :). I think the law school students spend Saturday night...in the library.

Every day is a historic day here on TLS. I eagerly await tomorrow, when we move on to comparing T14 campuses to sci fi locations.
