I just wanna call them...

"Just hit me with it. I've come a long way just to be here...what are the chances of a girl like me and a law school like you getting together?"

"Not good"

"Like, not good like one out of a hundred?"

"No...More like one out of a million..."

"...So you're saying there's a chance? YEAH! I read ya..."

Ha! Congratulations. Still a chance, and why not have some fun with it?

Hey thanks for the post! I might be able to make the NYC one (Because I'm driving up on Wednesday anyway). Hope to see some of you there

JS (wrapping up presentation) "... thank you all for coming out tonight. With that, does anyone have any questions about HLS or the admissions process?"

As hand pops up in first row, nextstep leaps out of seat: "Will you PLEEASSSEEE let me in? I've been waiting on a decision for 9 months now!"

So I figured I'd just go to all three...I'm practicing my groveling already.

So I'll see you all there. I'll reserve a few spots up front for all of us!

since no one had done this recently, I spent some time on the facebook page. right now it's at 582. however, I calculated 21 people who shouldn't be on it (including admin, SLS, YLS, and Chicago). So that brings the class right now to 561. And that's definitely not counting deferrals. This past incoming class (2015) is 557.

You mean, with the approximately nineteen deferrals and dropouts (gifted but unfortunately unstable), we all have excellent prospects!!

Not to be the pessimist here, but what if there are like 30 people who (gasp!) don't have facebook but are all set to go?

Academic Calendar: 2013-14

September 2 - 4, 2013
First-Year JD Student Orientation

September 9, 2013
1L and Upper-level Fall Term Classes Begin

Over 3 weeks until orientation; almost 4 until class begins! Plenty of time to not be nervous. Too bad about the deposits though.
