Re: NU (NW?) Apps '11-'12 - useless poll is useless

Postby rinkrat19 » Tue Dec 20, 2011 5:56 pm

I was only interested in part-time at Lewis & Clark. I literally applied to 5 other schools, totally for shits-n-giggles, chosen purely by the fact that they gave me fee waivers and had environmental law concentrations so my PS wouldn't need changin. (I'm not even looking at environmental law anymore.)

I did so many things wrong from LSAT prep to optional essays, I can't believe how lucky I was. If my NU acceptance hadn't arrived before the one I was anticipating from L&C , I don't know wtf I would have decided. In all honesty, I only started seriously considering going somewhere else because I was pissed that L&C was making me wait so long with my numbers!

Then, I dunno what happened, but Northwestern grabbed me and held on somehow and I was hooked. :)

"Roll Tide" just has that unique ability to be said at any time for any reason, and I would have that ability for the rest of my life as a Bama’ alum.

Make a basketball shot? Yell “Roll Tide”.

Ace a test? Yell “Roll Tide”.

Find a penny on the ground? You better believe I would be yelling “Roll Tide”.

Any speech I make ever for the rest of my life? It would end with a hearty “Roll Tide”


NU is my #1, but that catch-phrase prospect is hard to turn down…

They showed four real applicants to GW (with identifying information changed) and discussed the reasons for their decisions. All were denys and all were horrendous applications. I think only one person had numbers that were anything resembling competitive at GW (but still under both medians IIRC) and that person had like five alcohol-related arrests over the previous four years. I'd go back and find the thread, but the apps are likely down now. So, yeah, I think it's safe to say that law schools (especially the higher-ranked schools) get a lot of apps from auto-rejects.

They're still up (viewtopic.php?f=2&t=162196). It was hosted by Kaplan.

Thank you for the link and the correction. Yep, five arrests in four years. Goodness.

It baffles me how some people make no attempt to even take a passing glance at TLS. It is literally one of the first things, if not the first depending what you search for, that pops up when Googling info on law schools.

After deciding I wanted to go the law school route finding this site was pretty much the first thing I did. I <3 you TLS.

It blows my mind how much TLS has changed my life. I would not be in this thread, or even interested in Northwestern, without TLS. I would not have met so many great friends and acquaintances in the field of law without TLS. I'd probably be paying sticker for a ranked-100 school in an over-saturated market without TLS.

Sigh. <3 TLS, indeed.

Commentary more NU-specific:

I wish Johann was writing this blog instead of Dean Rodriguez. I get the feeling Johann's blog would have a little bit more...character.

Count me as a vote in favor of a blog by Johann. Dean Rodriguez's blog is a tad dry, but maybe he just needs to spend some time in Streeterville. He comes from a school that isn't exactly splitter-friendly after all.

Shit... I never really thought about the effect the new dean might have on the new class... think he'll shake things up in the first year?

No, Dean Rodriguez has other things on his mind right now. I think he's going to spend the next 3-4 months almost only getting the administrative stuff under wraps. He probably approved the new scholly program though, but I doubt he thought it up.

Plus, he hasn't actually started there yet. Does anyone know how much law school deans direct the admissions practices of their schools? They're still beholden to the board of trustees or whatever, no?
