Checking in! 166/3.76 with legal work experience so hopefully they see fit to extend an offer my way. Applied on 1/4. How quickly do things get turned around here? Good luck all...hopefully I don't find you and I wallowing in the 'Ding Bar' together.

Didn't intend on applying but I just got a fee waiver, so guess I will be haha. 3.56/166 so i'm a bit surprised. I don't mind being part of their manipulation process to increase their selectivity. I don't expect to get in, but who knows.

Their system probably sends that email out automatically after the 1000th time an applicant signs in to their status checker.

If I somehow backdoor my way in, I will definitely be visiting in March.

ETA: I may even go in March and just offer my body to admissions. Can't hurt right?

Having visited Ithaca, I would guess it to be the alcoholic school of the T100

I'm down. We can offer group role-playing, whatever the team wants. I like this.

I haven't been able to find a chart of this, but most of the T14 (maybe all?) spend more on their students than they charge in tuition, so letting in a handful more students than you would normally doesn't really help


Just the opposite. The marginal cost of admitting just 1 more student to the LS is near zero. But the marginal revenue is $200k. Add 10 new students, and it's a $2M payday. Of course, at a certain point, adding too many students requires another section/faculty member also be added.

Yes, on average, it costs more than $50k/pp to educate the undergrads. But that includes all of the engineering and science programs which can be very expensive on a per person basis. Lit/hume courses, OTOH... Undergrad programs also have to have the bed space (dorm facilities), which is not true for grad/professional schools.

Law schools tend to be cash cows for Universities (which is why law schools are still multiplying
like rabbits, even in this economy).[/quote

It is a fixed vs varible cost thing...the fixed costs at a law school are set vs the varible cost of letting a few more students.
