I feel bad that I can't contribute to the Harry Portter discussion...or the hammies discussion..


Any Lord of the Rings fans out there? I was thinking we could decide which race each school would be - don't worry this is PC. Men, Elves, Dwarves, Wizards, Hobbits, Orcs, Ents, Giants, Goblins, etc.


Men - NYU
Elves - Stanford
Dwarves - Chicago (I mean, c'mon, they have the Rubies)
Wizards - Yale ("A wizard is never late. He arrives precisely when he means to.")
Hobbits - Michigan

Orcs - Arizona Summit
Giants - Florida Coastal
Goblins - Cooley


this is excellent


Don't you think Cooley should be the Trolls?

Judging strictly by spam, Florida Coastal is the troll of all trolls...

Random but I'm finishing my app right now, and I saw that they require a lor from a supervisor if you work full time. I ama substitute teacher so I can't really get that (that and it's late as fuck). I have 3 LORs from professors though, will that be ok? Should I add an addendum explaining why I can't get the required professional LOR?

from my experience this isn't necessary. they understand how sometimes it can be tricky to get a letter from a supervisor if you aren't planning on telling them that you'll be going to law school for several months.

Perhaps I am ignorant. Is there any rational explanation? Surely they can submit them all to USPS on the same day (especially considering their late-cyle release)...

I would love to know the answer to this question.

In!

Big blue envelope came yesterday, mailed date was the 24th. I hate the Philly postal system. People in California were getting in, so I was sure I didn't get it this round, but then I did.

So if you're still waiting, take heart: your local mail system may just be slow.

PS I wanted to participate in the freakout since we got first word on Friday but I was saving my 100th for something special.

How staggered are they? You mean the fact that some November submitters get their decisions in January, February, and March? I suspect that they aren't sitting on anyone's applications; there are probably still some that are being reviewed or considered and aren't finished before the cutoff. Penn took two months to finish reviewing my app (according to status checker) other people it took a few weeks. Probably depends on your file and who is reviewing. But this is all just guess work, and if you mean that they mailings for the same wave are staggered that's just plain evil.

Hamiltons are hard to fit in blue envelopes, it takes some time...

The last part is what they mean. There have been several different post-mark dates on the people admitted this week. The earliest post mark was 1/24 and the latest 1/28 so far.

No mail today. Which either means the mailman is coming late or nothing came today.

I believe there was someone several pages back. Since they've made them to CA and WA, I don't see a reason why FL wouldn't have gotten yet (unless the south is still shut down from that inch of snow).

ETA: oops, 3000th post. Wanted this to be for an acceptance. Oh well!

Making fun of the south is a valid use of post milestones. :D

Figures that if it took to the 30th to get an acceptance sent out the 27th, it's perfectly reasonable to believe that there are acceptances going out the 28th and arriving either Sat or Mon.
