Yup, from the student ambassadors. Quite nice! Came yesterday complete with a GULC info book, pad, and map of DC. "Georgetown Law" is on the front of it.

Whereas, in reality, most applicants don't see it that way. They think of Georgetown as one of the best schools in America, and the only top top school in DC. It has a great name, and top students want to go there. Maybe they know it's not as good as Harvard, Yale, or Stanford, but I don't think they're thinking, "God, I can't go to GeorgeTTTown; I got into Michigan!"

I mean, when I applied to undergrad, it wasn't like I only applied to the top 15 schools and would have gone to the highest I got into. I applied to good schools that appealed to me, and went to a good public school even though I had a 1540 SAT. There are probably undergrad forums now where people would think I was crazy and tell me I should have held out for University of Chicago or some shit.

Also, people - graduates from top universities who are considering law school and have done basic research about it - have been more impressed by Georgetown than Cornell, Penn, Northwestern, etc. It just has a good name.

Not arguing that lay prestige or anything is important. Just saying that I'm not at all surprised Georgetown keeps their numbers high.


I know I missed a whole conversation related to this post, but fwiw I think that it is an appropriate reality check to those of us who may spend wayyyy to much time on TLS and get sucked into the US News t6 or 10>>>>GULC. I think its fair to say most law school applicants would kill to get an acceptance letter from Georgetown. Also, fwiw, my boss who is an attorney in Michigan thought my acceptance to GULC would rival an acceptance from any other school, so not everyone, even in the legal world is set in the TLS t6 m/v/p or bust mentality. Just my $.02

Yeah, I got that yesterday and wondered why I couldn't see anything about it on here. Now I understand why they don't have any money to give out for scholarships...

Also, seeing as I wasn't offered $$, I concocted a conspiracy theory where they send these to applicants who don't get $$ as a consolation bribe.

My leather case had a puppy in it! Of course, there were air holes in the case and the puppy was safe. It's so cute!

My guess is that an admissions office staff member will dropping by to hand deliver your leather case. You don't put a leather case in the mail if you don't have to.

I heard some people got kittens, and others got iguanas. One guy got a faberge egg. Either way, GULC is getting creative with their recruiting this year.

My numbers are only worth one kitten, unfortunately.

I can post this when I get home in 2.5 hours or so.

I assume my conspiracy theory is bunk, but to prove as much: did anyone who got the leather binder also receive a merit aid offer?

I'm here for baby animal law

§ 2.2. No dog dealer, kennel operator, or cattery operator shall separate a puppy or kitten from its mother, for the purpose of sale, until such puppy or kitten has attained the age of 8 weeks.

Everyone knows that baby animal law doesn't exist as an actual field of practice. It's just a gimmick used by law schools to try and attract applicants.
