MAC or JL


I would just send it to the general admissions account and the secretaries will forward it to whoever is in the office.


I emailed MAC because I remembered when I was negotiating with USC, emailing the specific dean really helped expedite my scholarship increase. Probably took less than 24 hours to get my increase.

AWWW YEAAAA. We're only 4-5 embarrassments away from being as presTTTigious as UVA or GW in the ATL rankings!



Haha! I was wondering when ATL was going to post something on this whole thing.

THanks man! Happy to be able to go with all you guys :D


Interesting choice of words. Anyone else perturbed by the amount of guys in the fb group? Is the midwest undergoing a demographic crisis?

Debating whether to go with the "cusenation is cheating with a mystery woman named MAC" quip, or to stick with the tried-and-true "cusenation hates women" route.

The ranking declined last year because WUSTL switched to the new job placement reporting a year earlier than everyone else, not because they had a greater drop in applicants than everyone else (also the 2012 rankings are not tied to the stats for last year's cycle. that class had not even deposited when the rankings came out). Almost every school has seen a significant drop in applications in the last few years. There will be plenty of medians that drop.

He wasn't saying that the ranking fell because of the drop in applicants. The argument is that there may have been a drop in applicants due to the drop in ranking.

Glad to have you in the class. You made the right call. I've spoken with about 15 attorneys about how to decide which law school to go to. They almost unanimously say there are two primary factors to consider: cost and career opportunity. You have just secured both.

I assume you have a college degree? Try and figure it out....Opportunity to join the circus you moron.


I was just wondering what you thought was secured. Nothing seems very secure for us mere mortals at T20s.

+1 to the bolded

it's whatever, we're all special snowflakes anyway. Even HYS kids can't say they're completely secure, and any security they do have only applies to that first job. No one knows what'll happen long-term. Just gotta minimize debt, study hard, and neTTTwork your ass off amirite?

not to get too Dolphine abt the situation, but lets keep the snark to a minimum (not addressed to anyone in particular). This is the WUSTL thread, we didn't get to this many pages by being unpleasant to one another :mrgreen:

Nothing in life is secured. You could graduate from Harvard without a job. They are talking about a realistic chance to pursue the career you want where you want to. Whether it be big law, finance, public interest, in-house opportunities, government jobs etc. So the lawyers I spoke with said you have to strike the balance between not being in debt (if possible or minimal debt) and giving yourself the best chance to succeed professionally.

I wasn't trying to be snarky, it was a legit question that wasn't very well fleshed out.

jd said employment opportunity was secured, which I took to mean "Go to WUSTL, become a lawyer." We know from the most recent class that's not true, about 1/3 of the class isn't becoming a lawyer. So I wondered what these attorneys meant? If they are boomers who think go to any law school=get job as lawyer then whatever.

But, and this is what I was hoping, might these be lawyers who have a realistic handle on the job situation for new grads? Might they even have some insight on what it could be like for our class? Do they think that employment for kids at a school of WUSTLs status in the law school pecking order will get significantly better, to the point where becoming a lawyer is closer to a sure thing than a 66% chance? Further, WUSTL has shrunk their class size considerablely recently, do these people think that might bode really well for the class of 2016? Basically I was just wondering what they were saying to jd and if it was particularly insightful for the latest batch of WUSTLers. As someone who will also be attending a T20 with a shrunken class size these issues are important to me and I was hoping maybe somebody actually in the industry knew something/had a theory about our job situation getting better.

But yeah, sorry, should have fleshed my question out more instead of posting one sentence during the middle of the 7th inning stretch. I have been pissing off a WUSTLer every time I post in this thread so all I can say is sorry and I'll stop posting here. Good luck guys, really glad they came through for you all in a really big way.
