Lol, for extremely specific but uninteresting reasons I sort of want my recommenders to forget I am even going to law school for the time being, so I probably won't ask for now. Although I am very curious to read what they wrote.

lol, you probably phrased it that way "specific but uninteresting" so as not to elicit questions from us but you failed. Now I am even more curious to know why you want them to forget you are applying to law school :P

*Disclaimer: I'm not actually asking you to answer this question; it sounds like it could out you. It is just going to bug me for the rest of the night (yes, my life is that uninteresting)


Upon further thought I don't think it will out me.

I currently work full time in the field I went to UG for, any my company does a lot of recruiting at my UG. My profs are very familiar with where I work, etc. However my employer does not yet know I am planning on leaving this summer to attend law school. What I'm trying to avoid is a situation where, at one of the many recruiting events that will take place this spring (which I will not be attending for this very reason), one my my profs mentions something that would tip my current employers off to my plans when talking folks from my company. Something like, "How is lawschool22 doing? We are proud of his success at X Company. When does he leave for law school?" Or something to that effect.

Idk if that makes sense or not, and maybe it is paranoid, but I would rather not leave work just yet lol.

There's a great gif here: https://31.media.tumblr.com/451cd671318e9d796593643fbafd6a86/tumblr_mzrcrkduPT1skmrleo4_500.gif

that describes me perfectly, but I haven't gossiped enough here to post images yet. They should fix that.

+1! Do you personally know 9 people who have been admitted? Or are you Dean Deal? If so, I'm a fantastic person who you should really admit. ;)

Also, is anyone else being continually logged out for no apparent reason tonight? This is driving me insane.

lol, as far as trolls go, this one was fairly tame. It was a diverting distraction and helps us up the page count ITT. We're at the bottom of the T14 for # of pages; clearly we need more polls! Or poetry; that was popular over in the Harvard thread...

ETA: speaking of trolls, whatever happened to LS22's fan, LSZZ? Did he get banned or just give up because his trolling failed?

A wild troll appears!
DonnaPaulsen uses rumoredSLSacceptances attack!
It's super effective!
Koala has fainted!

I don't think I can claim anti-troll abilities anymore, guys

Sorry y'all, but not looking to go through 55 pages...

If I'm reading the spreadsheet right, submit to decision takes two weeks? That doesn't seem possible?

No, that's definitely not right. Someone probably just filtered the spreadsheet again and killed a kitten.

Most people had to wait at least a month though SLS has been a bit random in this last batch in regards to complete date. Most of the January admits thus far have been Oct/Nov submits, I believe.
